Michel's home is beautiful and I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone visiting Cuba. The house is about 30min outside of Havana and about 45min from the airport. If you want to be by a lovely beach and relax, the house is only steps away and the neighborhood is very peaceful. Great place to stay!

Exceeded our expectations! If you want to relax near the beach and experience the real Cuban culture, and visit busy Havana for a day or two, we highly recommend making this your home base. The house is lovely with the gardens, outdoor areas, rooftop views, outdoor shower, and of course the chickens! We loved the breakfast option provided, especially the first morning after a long trip. We always felt safe, really everywhere in Cuba, but there is also a very discreet 24 hour on-sight security/maintenance person staying downstairs who can help or contact the home owners at any time for questions or transportation. This was very helpful since we went off the grid with no phone or internet, the best! (We did walk 15 minutes or took a horse cab to the Guanabo town square a couple of times to check for any emergency emails). We ate at 421 Restaurant and Chicken Little, both nice. Download the the app and bookmark your points of interest in Havana and Guanabo/restaurants and the gps works great without wifi! Everything is different, in a good way, do not expect big grocery stores, just little convenience stores with limited selections, but enough. The service was on point, and Michel, his lovely mother Aricely, Pasquale, Rey, Cecilia, and all the rest were the best- always available, warm, and welcoming! Local beaches, ,Guanabo, one block down, or Playa Santa Maria (3 miles) were both beautiful. We will be back!

First - I must say many thanks to Michel, Ara, and Claudia for such a great time! You guys were great hosts and I will not only miss you but I will miss the soursop tree and the passion fruit in the backyard. After spending 10 days travelling around Cuba, we were ready to relax on the beach......and relaxing we did at this beautiful beach house in Boca Ciega. This house was perfect for me and my wife and two boys (11 years and 9 years). We would start off the day with a great breakfast from Cecilia. Then we would walk to the local store and load up with snacks, water and beer that was only a block away. The beach was a short five minute walk from the house. We enjoyed the beaches to the left (west) and would walk along the beach and cross over the Rio Boca Ciega. At its deepest point, the rivers mouth was only about a meter deep, so it was easy to cross on the beach. The sands and water were much more pleasant and inviting in this area. We were very sad to leave after spending four days at this lovely property. On our last day, Michel gave us a tour of the local hidden gems and then dropped us off at the airport. Thanks so much for an awesome time!

The house is very modern, clean and well equipped. It is like an oasis is often rustic Cuba. Retiring into well air-conditioned house after a day at the beach is feels very good. House is about 2 blocks from the beach and there are number of restaurants, small convenience stores and a crafts market within walking distance. Michel's mother Ara and Claudia are excellent hosts, who are generous with their time and advice to make best possible stay.
