Gorgeous, clean home in Vedado. House has large windows, high ceilings and the loveliest porch with the world’s most comfortable rocking chairs. The house is in a residential area, so staying here provides a great opportunity to see local Cuban life up close. There is a market nearby if you wish to purchase fruit and vegetables. About a 10 minute walk to Hotel Nacional and the Malecon. This house is not that close to the city center, but you can walk one block over to Calle 23 to grab a cab. The owner was away in Switzerland so I was not able to meet her; however, Damilca was a wonderful host who was always available if I needed anything. I also insisted on speaking Spanish so that I could practice and she was very patient with my errors. Breakfast every morning consisted of fresh fruit, rolls with butter, fresh juice and coffee. There was also an option to have eggs. I chose the room with the private bath and I’m gad I did as the other two rooms share a bathroom. Water pressure in the shower was OK and it was warm. You have a choice of AC or fan. The window has shutters that can be opened to let in light, but I didn’t use them as one side had a screw loose and I was afraid it would fall off. There is a TV in the living room, but reception was really poor. Great house to rent, especially if you’re traveling as a group. Take time to enjoy the porch. I spent a lot of time there just watching the world go by. My only negative, and here I’m being picky, was the fact that smoking was allowed on the porch. Since I don’t smoke and the other...

Since I don’t smoke and the other guests did, I was only able to enjoy the porch when I was there alone. If, like me, you prefer non-smoking environment, this may not be the house for you. If you walk to the the end of Calle 19, there is a lovely restaurant named California Cafe that I found on my last night. Also check out Tamy's Cakes, also on Calle 19, for delicious little tarts.

Casa bonita e bem decorada, com quartos confortáveis. Bem localizada, no centro de Vedado, barro residencial e tradicional de Havana. Próxima a restaurantes paladares, museus, mercado de frutas e legumes e de casa de cambio. Ótimo atendimento, com destaque para Annabel que está sempre disponível para responder às necessidades dos hospedes.

A casa de Farah é linda e muito bem localizada. Infelizmente Farah não estava lá quando marcamos a nossa estadia, mas sua colaboradora Galia foi extremamente atenciosa e solícita, nos fazendo nos sentir realmente em casa. Isso sem contar que ela faz um café da manhã incrível, que está incluído no preço da hospedagem. 🙂 Recomendo muito!

Very Spacious & Clean Dalia was Amazing, I honestly felt like she was my long lost Aunty who’s been waiting to spoil me. Her hospitality was Spot on, and she was very diligent about arriving On time and having breakfast ready. Her suggestions on what to do during our stay was very much helpful. I enjoyed having my own room in the evening to unwind and cool off from the days adventures.

La casa es muy linda y se encuentra en excelente estado, las habitaciones son un poco pequeñas, pero con suficiente espacio, la nuestra tiene baño propio y aunque estábamos solos en la casa eso es una gran ventaja, estaba muy bien ventilada y entra bastante luz por las mañanas. La atención en la casa es excelente, Galia quien nos atendió, nos hizo sentir como en casa, estuvo al pendiente de nosotros todo el tiempo y no tuvimos ningún problema, incluía desayuno lo cual me gusto bastante, era bueno y lo pudimos programar de acuerdo a nuestro itinerario. Otro punto muy bueno que tiene es la ubicación, fácilmente pudimos llegar caminando a varios lugares como el malecón o La Plaza de la Revolución.

Wir haben im Dezember 2017 mit 5 Personen 14 Tage Urlaub im Haus von Farah gemacht. Das Haus ist gut geschnitten und es bietet mit den 3 Schlafzimmern und zwei Bädern genügend Privatsphäre. Es handelt sich um ein schönes Haus im alten Kolonialstil. Es ist sehr gepflegt, liebevoll eingerichtet und wird von Anabel sehr sauber gehalten. Die veröffentlichten Bilder entsprechen genau der Realität. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Besonders erwähnenswert ist das leckere Obstfrühstück, welches uns Anabel jeden Morgen frisch zubereitet hat und die Veranda vor dem Haus, wo wir gerne in den Schaukelstühlen die Morgensonne genossen haben. Die Unterkunft zeichnete sich besonders durch die freundliche und hilfsbereite Betreuung durch Anabel aus. Allerdings sind für die Kommunikation Spanischkenntnisse von Vorteil. Das Haus ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Trips ins Centrum von Havanna und die Umgebung. Für 10 CUC kann man jederzeit mit einem Taxi in die Innenstadt fahren. Für 120 - 160 CUC (Verhandlungssache) kann man sich einen Fahrer buchen für Tagesausflüge in die nähere Umgebung. Havanna ist eine pulsierende, lebendige und laute 2 Millionenstadt. Farahs Haus liegt in einer relativ ruhigen Wohngegend, in der näheren Umgebung sind fußläufig in einem Radius von 10-20 Min. mehrere gute Restaurants zu erreichen. Wir haben uns in der Gegend sehr sicher gefühlt! Alles in allem haben wir dort einen tollen Urlaub verbracht und können das Haus nur weiterempfehlen! Ralf und Familie aus Deutschland/ Köln

This was the perfect place to stay!! Went here for my bachelor party and it was the perfect house. Location was great, close to everything and very easy to get cabs. Anabel is wonderful, she made sure we had everything we needed and helped arrange everything, from taxis to reservations. House is super clean with toiletries too! Highly recommended for your trip to Cuba.

Farah's home was wonderful! My best friend and I decided to take a vacation together to celebrate our 30th birthdays, and we could not have been more happy that we chose this place to stay in Vedado. The home was spacious and clean. The bathroom is modern and large, but the best part by far was the beautiful front porch. We loved sitting out there in the morning and in the evening watching the quite neighborhood move by. The host provided two umbrellas which ended up being very useful, as well as a map of the neighborhood with suggested restaurants and sites. One place that wasn't on the list that I would highly recommend is Starbien Restaurante. We had a very nice lunch here one day for 12CUC per person. It has a lovely outdoor seating area, if you can bear the heat, but if not they air conditioning inside. Starbien Restaurante Calle 29 #205 entre B y C Vedado. I would like to note that unfortunately we did have one complication during our stay; we didn't have water for the first two days, but Anabel (the care taker of the house) could not have been more accommodating and helpful. She lives in the neighborhood, and was at our home multiple times a day to bring us water and continually tried to fix the problem. She went out of her way to to make us as comfortable as possible. Farah's mother also showed up to try and help, and reimbursed us some money for your inconvenience, which was unnecessary but very appreciated. Eventually the water was fixed and all was well. The problem ended up being the motor. On another note, Anabel was a fabulous host in Farah's absence. It was a pleasure to get to know her, and she... Read more

Notre séjour chez Farah a été très agréable. Merci à Anabelle pour ces petits déjeuners copieux et remplis de fruits frais ! La chambre est très agréable et propre. Il faut prendre le taxi pour se rendre dans Habana Vieja mais c'est très simple d'en trouver pour vous véhiculer. Le Malecon et le cimetière sont facilement accessibles à pied en 30 min environ. Je recommande ce logement

Perfect place for our stay. Quiet location (we slept really well), but close enough to the main drag in Vedado and easy to get to Plaza de la Revolución, Habana Vieja, Centro Habana, the university, the malecón, etc, either walking (might be a long walk for some people) or taxi. Anabel was extremely kind, kept the house impeccably clean, and made us impressive breakfasts with lots of fruit every morning. She answered questions we had about where to get certain things and how to get places, and helped us make a couple of phone calls. Communication with Farah was excellent before we arrived. I recommend having her arrange your airport taxi because it makes things easier and the prices are competitive with the taxis at the airport. Anabel called for a taxi to take us back to the airport, which was helpful.
