Located about 20 minutes from Old Havana in a quiet town right by the sea. There are numerous small restaurants within walking distance that stay open late, and a bus stop around the corner that takes you straight into Havana. Candy and her staff are very nice and accommodating. On a number of occasions she's shown her dedication to making sure that her guests are taken care of. Very nice visit!

*Deceiving Listing*Candy was very helpful when we initially booked our stay with her, so we thought this was a good option for us to reserve. Unfortunately we lost contact with her 2 weeks prior to our arrival and had no idea how we'd get access to the home upon arrival. Please note the home does not have WiFi access at all, Candy will also not share information on how to log-in at her home (Candy house) either. We did not have functioning hot water during our stay, which was challenging for 4 guests. The house is also across from a trash/waste dumping area, so bring bug spray as it attracted several mosquitoes and strange bites, also a very foul smell. The home is located in Cojimar, which is about 15 minutes from Havana city center. It is difficult to get a taxi, so you will need to plan your day accordingly to have Candy set up a taxi to take you to your destination. I personally would not book this home again, just based on the deceiving information we received.

Despite the strict cancellation policy, on several occasions I have refunded the money to guests, attending to their just reasons to advance their departure, have to cancel, etc. It was not necessary to invent non-existent problems with obvious bad intention, criticizing the communication, cleaning, neighborhood, etc. Luckily, I receive so many guests, most of them from your country, who are such good and friendly people. They are very communicative and appreciate the efforts we make here to provide a good service.They feel good with our service and sometimes give constructive recommendations, which we appreciate. Generally, we say goodbye with hugs and shake hands with the desire to see each other again. I have consulted with some Marina House clients about your review and concluded that Sade´s group have "0 Stars on Honesty".

Great place to start a trip to Cuba, and get your bearings. Very easy taxi ride to city and airport. Being away from the diesel fumes of Havana was great. Comfortable house , but waterfront in cojimar is pretty basic. Candy was very helpful in finding us transportation and additional lodging. I will recommend her 3 house to my friends and family

Candy (host) arranged for a large American car to pick us up from the airport because I was traveling with 4 other people. Candy spoke very good English and assisted in translating our request to the taxi driver. When we arrived at the house, Candy gave us the keys and had her assistant, Pico (probably spelled that wrong) show us around. The house looks exactly like the pictures. However, there was one blue room with a broken AC that my family refused to stay in. The house was clean upon arrival and was cleaned by a helper one time during our 5 day stay. The water in the main bathroom had very little water pressure making showers uncomfortable. But after a couple days, we adapted. The house felt very safe with all the locks and doors. The neighbors across the road, spoke a little English and were very nice. The neighbors to the left spoke and understood English and assisted with my purchase of pastries from a cart that drove by the area. Any and every issues that took place in the house were addressed and handled in a timely fashion. Candy hosted a nice breakfast for us for $5 each on our last day of our stay. She is a nice woman and definitely a people person. Our stay was enjoyable, and relaxing.

Candy was awesome! She helped us TREMENDOUSLY with pre-trip arrangements for an interpreter & a car/driver for our week stay, as well as other arrangements that made our trip hugely successful! Marina House is so-named because it is located just down the street from Cohimar Marina, famous for its ties to Ernest Hemingway and his Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Old Man & The Sea (a somewhat autobiographical work, based on his own experiences Marlin fishing off of Cohimar), Hemingway's final major fiction work. (See (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) (URL HIDDEN) ) Candy's employee, Gloria, took very good care of us, running store errands and taking care of the daily necessities. Gloria could be a Cubano chef in her own right; her breakfast & dinner was absolutely marvelous. Marina House overlooks the beautiful sea (just walk across the street to dip your toes in) and is a short 10 minute drive to white, sandy beaches. WiFi service (rare in Cuba as of this writing) is only 7 minutes by car, as well as numerous shops & markets. There are several restaurants within walking distance including Hemingway's daily haunt in Cohimar (and his favorite table still reserved for him!). A small park & monument, Hemingway Park, is just up the way, with greetings from friendly Cubanos at every step. If pizza, seafood and creole cuisine appeal to you, you will not be disappointed with your stay here. Additionally, La Habana is just a brief cab ride away (get the number of a good cabbie from Candy - ALEXANDER was wonderful). If the native Cubano language is difficult for you, Candy also has the number of the best Western English translator I have ever met. Hard to believe Juan Miguel has never been outside of Cuba! In conclusion, I would highly recommend this escape from the hustle & bustle of downtown Havana.
