Facilities

The small fully furnished apartment with full bath, kitchen and large terrace is located on the 3rd floor of an attractively designed residential complex in western Havana (district Playa). There is a swimming pool, a parking space (underground car park) and a 24-hour guard service. The apartment is conveniently located. Fair (Palacio de Convenciones), marina (Nautico) or the hotel Melia Habana can be reached from here on foot. The connection to the old town of Havana with public transport is optimal for the conditions in Havana and takes about 20 to 45 minutes depending on the means of transport and time. The apartment is relatively quiet and has a beautiful view to the country side. The sea on the other side of the house is only 300m away.

The comfort of this apartment goes far beyond what can be found elsewhere in Havana. In addition to the amenities already described, an emergency generator ensures that in the event of a power failure – which is not uncommon in Havana – the electricity is available again after just a few seconds. There is one circuit with the national voltage of 110V and another with 220V. So you can choose the right circuit for your equipment.

In contrast to the mostly clumsy interior of many apartments in Cuba, you will find here rather light furniture. The individually made bed can be folded up during the day so that the room is used optimally.

The south-east position greets the sun in the morning. From midday, when it gets hot, you no longer have direct sunlight. In addition, you have an air conditioning system to regulate the temperature of your personal well-being.

The equipment includes:

  • Elevator
  • Air conditioning
  • Refrigerator
  • Gas stove
  • Electric oven
  • Towels and bed linen
  • Flat irons
  • Hairdryer
  • Closet with coat hangers

Shopping

In the house itself there is a supermarket. A few minutes walk away are other shops and simple restaurants. Especially recommendable is a small trader about 400m away, who always has a good selection of fruits and vegetables. During a longer stay there is contact to flying merchants, who also deliver fresh fish on order.

Internet / WLAN

Even modern apartments in Cuba still have very rarely Internet. This is usually due to the monthly basic price. The apartment has internet and satellite TV connections. However, it is hardly worth using these if you rent for less than a year. But there are alternatives. Most residents of the complex go to a nearby hotspot of the state telephone company ETECSA. Here it is possible to buy cards that allow you to surf for one hour per card for the equivalent of USD 1.50 (March 2019 price).

Rental conditions

The apartment is offered for short or long term stays from private, but can also be booked in conjunction with one of the “Danza y Movimiento” package tours. The minimum rental period is five nights. Long-term renting is possible. The rental price depends on the duration of the stay and the number of persons.

Local contacts are available for all questions during your stay.

The Landlord

The landlord Matthias from Germany is a big fan of the unique Cuba. Since 1996 he is organizing special travel offers in Cuba with a team of Cubans. From the beginning, the people of Cuba have been integrated into this program and directly involved in the organization and income from the trips. His travel offer system has been copied by many other and bigger tour operators, but until today nobody has reached the quality of “Danza y Movimiento’s” offers in Cuba. On the individual trips Matthias brings in his knowledge of Cuba as well as his skills as a coach and personal trainer. Besides these tours Matthias is offering this nice apartment to guests from all over the world and is taking care of the bookings personally with local contact persons in Havanna.

All prices & availability upon request. Please contact us for an individual offer.
