My stay at this Airbnb was amazing! The staff here were so accommodating, gracious, warm and attentive that I ended up changing my original vacation plans. I planned to stay for two nights only in Habana and travel out to Varadero, but because Glenda, Jose, Yanet, Sandra, Josue, and Luz were so welcoming and awesome, I decided to stay in Habana and use more of their services and be around their company.
Jose was my tour throughout most of my stay in Habana. He's the kind of person that goes all out for you, and clicks wonderfully with everyone. Very communicative, very transparent, sincere, and overall fun to be around! Know's plenty of night spots if you're interested, places to eat and purchase gifts but still get your money's worth, and especially with transportation and cultural events.
Glenda is the administrator of the place and is also very caring, professional, flexible, and will look out for you making sure you have the best stay while in Cuba. She also will give you further historical knowledge regarding Cuba. We have had great conversations regarding the growth and progress of Cuba.
Yanet and Sandra both provide the domestic service of the house. They maintain the house in impeccable clean condition, also do laundry service at your request, and breakfast (Which was always delicious and my favorite part of the day!). Yanet is also the massage therapist of the house, and is wonderful! for 5 CUC you can get an hour full body massage with her. Who can beat that?! And come out feeling amazing!
Josue is the driver of the house, meaning he can take you wherever you need to go quick, safe, on time, and at great rates. I also enjoyed my time in the car with Josue because while you're riding, he also gives you a tour around Habana and gives you historical context as well, and is willing to travel further outside of Habana for a moderate price. Josue is also funny and has great Cuban music and "American" music.
Luz use to work at the house as well. I met her through Yanet, since she would stop by the house to visit everyone and was also very sweet, informative, and accommodating whenever I had any questions.
All in all my stay at this Habana house was beyond my expectations. My favorite nights were the domino nights and my time at the beach with them.
AMAZING RIGHT? I expected to make friends in Cuba, but ended up creating a family.
Thank you Jose, Glenda, Yanet, Luz, Sandra, Josue, and Eric for giving me an authentic Cuban experience.
Nos veremos pronto mis hermanos!
