VERY CLEAN HOME, VERY WELL SITUATED IN A SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD, This is a beautiful upper floor colonial style home managed by my sister, my mother and I. Marvy and Alberto answer and approve all the internet requests since they speak the best English. The home is in a very SAFE area day or night!!! It is centrally located and it is very CLEAN. It has 2 air conditioned bedrooms and 2 private baths with door locks. The main bath in the hall is the one most guests like to use. However, if that bathroom is occupied, then you are free to use the other second full bathroom located next to the kitchen... Both are private and with locks on the doors. (Bedroom 1 has a Queen side bed that sleeps 2. Bedroom 2 has 2 single beds and a 3rd single bed can be brought in to accommodate up to 3 people. The home is located in Central Havana, and it is within 20 minutes walking distance to most places of interest and tourist attractions. The famous Malecon sea wall/walk is only 5 blocks from our home.
The price of each room varies depending on many factors including how many in a room, length of stay and season. Please check the calendar before you book to view current prices.
In this home you will have complete privacy and security. We live in the back of the house and are available 24/7 to make your stay trouble free and pleasant. A full breakfast (5.00 per person) may be served upon request.
Guest could have access to the refrigerators in the house to store water, etc. . Transportation to and from the airport average total price is 25.00. (More than 3 riders with many bags may cost a bit more). There are plenty of Taxis and private drivers that can bring you home outside of the Terminal building. They are all safe!!! The airport is 15 km or 9 miles from the house. The ride from the airport to the house can take anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes depending on traffic. We can help with information about tour guides, places of interests, and many other local attractions. (Keep in mind however, that we are not a travel agency and information given is only to help supplement what ever info you may already have and to make your stay a more enjoyable and pleasant stay). We are a family that will welcome you with open arms..
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND>>>As you can see in the pictures, the space is large enough, clean, SAFE and in my view beautiful....however, please remember that Cuba is not a luxury destination! Many things are still quite basic. Water pressure is not what it is in America or some places in Europe, but it is sufficient. We have a big reservoir tank on the roof and even on those rare occasions when there are water cuts by the city, it should not impact our guests.
Thanks for looking and Welcome to La Habana. Welcome to our home.

我们的房子距离着名的Malecon和parque Maceo区有5个街区。机场距离房子15公里或9英里。这是一个15至20分钟的车程，取决于交通。房子是在一个非常安全的地区（Concordia 626 altos。（entre）Oquendo和Marquez Gonzalez），位置很好，非常干净。它靠近哈瓦那老城，国立酒店，哈瓦那大学。 Paseo del Prado，El Castillo del Morro，Vedadoárea，La Bodeguita del Medio，el Palacio de la Rumba，Callejónde Hamel，El Floridita，el Capitolio，La Catedral，El Hotel Inglaterra以及更多的旅游景点。大多数在步行距离内。这是一个非常安全的区域，白天或晚上。有当地的交通和出租车可用。大部分出租车都是旧式的老式美国汽车，仍在运转。但是，有现代出租车和观光/观光巴士。当地的公共汽车运输也是可用的，但主要由当地人使用在一个非常便宜的成本。 如果只有一次，它们就拥挤得多，值得拥有。
Marvy has been such a wonderful host for us! My boyfriend and I stayed with her for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip and also our last night before flying back home. The whole house is very clean and it’s safe there. We had our private room with our own keys and a bathroom shared with 2 other guests. Marvy made a delicious breakfast with coffee, omelette, bread, cheese, sausage and so many fruit and juice that you can’t eat and drink everything of it She also recommended us many further casas for our next stops in Vinales, Cienfuegos and Trinidad which were really great! We couldn’t have had a better start as we had with Marvy and her mum in Old Havanna
Thank you very much for the good time! We will always remember ❤️
It was a very nice stay at Marvy‘s house! She is really friendly and gave us lots of tips for our following stays. Hope to see you again!! Muchas gracias and lots of kisses, Rebecca and Nadja
We stayed 3 nights in the beginning of our traveling through Cuba and 1 night at the end in the house.
The first time we enjoyed it very much. The room was cool and clean. Mercy could speak English very well, which was very helpfully for us only English speaking people. The breakfast was also very nice - we loved the guarva juice.
The communication on homestay with Marvely before our visit was excellent! They gave us so many tips and information!
The last night we spotted two cockroaches which was the only thing we can criticize.
Nevertheless thank you all for the nice stay and time in Havanna!
Very friendly hostess with just a little English ( but better than my Spanish!). Room pretty basic and dark and beds a bit lumpy but nice quiet and efficient fan. Bathroom clean but very feeble shower. Excellent breakfast ( for an extra 5 CUC). Neighbourhood ok but quite a long way from the city centre. We did find a few decent restaurants nearby and a shortish walk to Hotel Deauville for WiFi and coffee.
I was in Havana in November 2018. For the first three days I was at Marveys...She is such a great host. The house is clean and very close to the old Havana.
Marvy, your are nice and I am glad that I spend my days at your nice home. She is a helpfull host. Looking forward to return to Havana to visit you!
Sweet, helpful and friendly host who was very accomodating and lovely to talk to. Beautiful house and lovely room with a fan. Near enough to walk to Capitolio (around 20 minutes) and host was very helpful with travel and booked us a Taxi Collectivo to Trinidad! Delicious breakfast and interesting, exciting area to stay in. I reccomend this homestay!
Marvy was so welcoming to her home and made me feel so welcome. She showed me local restaurants and organized a taxi for a tour. For a little extra I was able to have a delicious breakfast. It was a pleasure to stay in her home.
Here are the brothers, who lost your keys at the nick of the time before the departure :).
At that moment it was very stressful for us, but you were right, soon it turned to be a little funny, because we came at the airport and at this very moment the keys dropped out on the floor from the pocket of my brothers small bag, where he had handkerchief!
You know - he was looking everywhere - but in handkerchief pocket no!
So, you can be calm, the keys are ok, but now with living with him here, in Czech Republic and waiting for our next trip to Cuba!
Moreover, I dare to say many thanks for your hospitality and kindess!
And of course, wishing you and your mother good luck in Magical New Year.
Hope to see you in your Casa again - with keys!
