Open your eyes and wake up with the fresh clean sea breeze from Malecon surrounded by the colonial spirit of the island, smell the fresh Cuban coffee and warm milk, “café con leche” as Cubans families call it, with delicious Cuban sugar. Enjoy tropical fruits and homemade juices. After that, walk along the Malecon just two blocks from the house and enjoy Havana!
Amazing apartment with a roof top terrace located in a top of a 1940’ Art Deco style building. ccupies the entire upper level of a colonial building in the heart of Vedado, Havana’s cultural centre, within steps of Malecón, Hotel Nacional, many reputable restaurants (amongst them an Anthony Bourdain pick, Café Laurent), galleries, music venues, and 5 min ride to Old Havana. 4 rooms with ensuite bathrooms, a modern fully equipped kitchen, front and back living rooms, and a private roof terrace with comfortable dining/lounging areas and breathtaking views of Havana.
Set on the entire upper level of a 1940 Neo-Classical building in the heart of vibrant Vedado, our villa is a very comfortable and well appointed home. You can easily walk to the Malecón, catch a cab, exchange money at the bank at the corner, walk to get basic supplies, walk to a few very reputable restaurants (amongst them an Anthony Bourdain pick, well known Café Laurent, and also the place across the street always packed with locals and live music) or walk to the Hotel Nacional for a cigar, or wifi on the terrace.
The house itself is a symbol of the very place you are visiting: the original tile floors and wood doors are there, but all the bathrooms are beautifully updated and modern. Each of the 4 rooms has its own bathroom, plenty of space, bedside tables and lamps, and doors to close and lock. The beds are welcoming and comfortable (2 kings, 1 queen, and 1 double), linens and towels are all provided, and each room has its own AC. With a front and back living room, a modern spacious kitchen fully equipped with everything you need, a rooftop terrace for smoking cigars under the night sky, lots of tropical house plants, and a balcony that opens to the street where you can hear sounds of live music that is the quintessence of Cuba.
When you arrive at the house, you will find people whose main concern is to make you feel at home. We will greet you at the curb, help you carry bags, greet you with mojitos and Cuban appetizers. We will set you up with a local phone should you have emergencies, and (if you wish) be there in the morning before you even wake up to make coffee and breakfast.
The apartment is completely private for the use of registered guests only. You will be asked to provide identification (passport) on arrival and sign in. These steps are in keeping with Cuban government policy. You will have your own keys to the apartment for your stay. These keys must be returned at check-out.
The building is not wheelchair accessible and there’s no elevator. The apartment itself is on the second floor, which means a ground-floor entrance level and then 2 high-ceilinged floors above it. However, the staircase has a good railing, the stairs are solid, with a medium riser height , and there are landings between and at each floor. We are happy to help you with your luggage when you arrive and leave the villa.
