Hostess
You will be pampered by Nairobis, our friend and hostess and our family. If you wish, we take care of everything (washing ironing, meals, transport and excursions).

The neighbourhood
The house is located in Centro Habana the working-class neighborhood of Havana. 15 minutes walk from Parc Central with the Capitolio. Ten minutes walk from the boulevard, the Malecon and within five minutes you are by taxi in Vedado (calle 53).

Open the doors on the street side, sit down in the rocking chair, take a cold beer or a delicious Cuba libre, and look outside. Cuban (social) life runs and rolls past you. It is as if you are in a film set with: old American cars, Russian Lada's, peddlers with vegetables, fruit, bread, etc. and especially the melting pot of colorful people. 50 meters away in street Salud is an excellent restaurant (Flor de Lota) ) and a pizzeria Mimosa with great pizzas. Shopping center (Carlos III) at ten minutes walking from the house.Meerlijk fresh fruit is for sale on almost every street corner. Three churches (Catholic and Protestant) within walking distance.

Transport options
The best thing to discover Havana is on foot. You have quick contact with the people and you see people practicing professions that we no longer know. Cubans do not throw anything away, all things are repaired or recycled for a new life or use.Bicitaxis are available around the corner. Our uncle Ramon takes you with his Lada to every destination in Havana. At an attractive rate per hour, per day or per kilometer. The departure point for the regular service (linea) per old American oldtimer to Vedado, is located in calle Neptuno. A little further in Calle San Lazaro take the regular service to Pac Central.

Money
Take cash from your country (preferably euros) and exchange them in Cuba for the local currency (cuc). In the street Belascoin (100 meters away from the house) is a Cadeca, a money exchange office. For 1 euro you get a little more than 1 cuc. Also buy some cup (pesos cubanos). You can buy cheap fruit, a cup of espresso coffee for 1 peso or a tasty (ham cheese) pizza on the street.

Service
Services can be purchased at an additional cost (meals, drinks, washing and ironing, transport and excursions and meals). We provide breakfast and dinner at attractive rates.

An extensive breakfast with delicious fresh fruit awaits you in the morning. The first morning we serve you a free breakfast, at least if you spend a minimum of three days with us. In the evening you can enjoy Criollo dishes that are a real pleasure. Dishes with chicken, beef, pork or fish. Enjoy without moderation in this special environment.

Protection
Are you aware, prepared and take into account a stay in the Tropics (sun, vaccinations, hygiene). Be careful when eating tents on the street. The hygiene is Cuba is different from what we are used to in our (Western) world. Do not take risks, diarrhea is no fun. Watch out for eating homemade ice cream or tap water. Our advice is to buy spring water, available in bottles of 0.5 liters to 5 liters. Cuba is an extremely safe country, but do not take any risks and keep your valuables safe in our house (safe). All doors are equipped with good locks and bars. Sit back and surrender to the intense experience of Cuba, the climate, the music and the wonderfully relaxed Cubans.

House rules
We expect our tenants to carefully handle the property and the items in the house. You need permission to let non-registered guests stay in the house. We have a good feeling that you want to comply with these rules. We work on the basis of trust. You can smoke in the open patio of the house or on the street. Smoking in the confined spaces of the house is not allowed. We ask for a deposit for rent from the house. You only pay a deposit if damage (or loss) has been caused by your actions.

Two bicycles are available. 1 Is there in the house and 1 is available on demand.
