Hi, Our names are Caroline & David (an English and Cuban young married couple).
We have now relocated to England and are renting out our beautiful house in Havana leaving our family in Cuba running the day to day management to give you a holiday to remember, showing you a real touch of Cuban life. You will have your own private Cuban apartment with a beautiful balcony to enjoy those evenings with a mojito or two, and with our family on call for anything you may need during your stay.

Our casa is very modern inside but still holding its unique features.
It is situation on the 1st floor (with about 20 steps up to our apartment)
2 DOUBLE BEDROOMS UPSTAIRS, 1 room has a double bed and the other has 2 single beds, which can be made up into a queen size double or used as 2 single beds whichever is requested by the guest, BOTH ROOMS WITH AC.
SAFE DEPOSIT BOX. Iron, hair dryer.
KITCHEN with Fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, and MINI BAR.

Towels and bedding are provided and soap in the bathroom.

Our apartment is in a residential area of Central Havana called Cayo Hueso, it is situated right in the heart of the capital which is a very popular neighbourhood with locals to live and tourists to visit with the callejon de hamel just across the road, in this area you will be just outside of the usual 'tourist traps' of Old Havana and able to see the 'true Cuban life' but close enough by foot to walk there along the malecon when you wish to.

Dostupno gostima

(Please note that due to the conditions in Cuba, sometimes to purchase bottled water to top up the mini bar can be difficult as food and drink in Cuba is very limited in the shops but we always do everything we can to find water to top up the mini bar to have it readily available to purchase for our guests)

Ostale napomene

Please understand that Cuba is a communist country and things are very very different there with how the country is run compared to a Capatalist country, sometimes it is very hard to understand. If you embrace this difference you will have the most amazing experience and a fantastic fun time there.

*Check-out is 12pm. (Late check outs can be arranged if no guests are arriving that day)

ONLY the people who's names are on the booking are to stay or visit Casa animás. No additional people (Tourist or Cuban). The Cuban immigration are very strict with this and on the spot fines can be issued if these rules are not complied with.

Maximum 4 people can stay in the casa. (Unless agreed by us prior to your stay)

Charges apply for any breakages or damages to our property/furniture

Smoking-please only smoke outside on the terrace and refrain from smoking inside the casa

Toilet paper: Please only put in the bin provided and not down the toilet as the sewage system is not the best in Cuba and will block the toilet.

Please turn the air conditioning off when you go out for the day.

Please close all doors and windows when you go out, and be careful if you take an afternoon siesta, storms can come by in Havana very fast especially during the months of May-October, so please close all doors and windows in case of this.

Please use the Safe provided for your valuables.

Please keep the noise to a minimum during the evening and night and when leaving and entering the building as we have elderly and working families living in the block.

Any breakfasts, dinners or mini bar purchases that you take as extra during your stay need to be paid in CASH using CUC only (cuban currency) to Isabel or Yakira. This is a separate service and unfortunately can not be taken from airbnb.

We recommend that you only book tours, restaurants, transfers etc through our family (yakira or Isabel) or use tour companies in the hotels and not people you meet on the streets.

Please take care when walking around the streets of Havana, especially in the evening/night. We recommend that you use taxis where possible in the evenings, but if you do walk refrain from taking expensive cameras, phones and only carry small amounts of cash and keep to the main roads. Havana & Cuba is very safe compared to other cities around the world, however with the increase in tourists travelling to Cuba, petty Street crime is on the rise.

*Please be aware that there is no WiFi in the apartment like all apartments in Cuba, it is not readily available like it is in 1st world/capitalist countries (due to Government restrictions) we have provided you with a few nearby places for you to get wifi if needed (you will need to buy an wifi card at these hotels):

Nearest WIFI to Animas:
*HOTEL COLINA (calle L, between 27 y Joveller) 5 minutes walk
*HABANA LIBRE HOTEL (calle L y 23) 5 minutes walk
*HOTEL NACIONAL (calle 21 y O) 7 minutes walk

We have a lovely Apartment and you will be treated like family.

We give you the above information to protect your safety during your stay and to ensure you have a pleasant holiday to Havana, Cuba.
We are happy to go out of our way to make your trip an enjoyable one, so please do not hesitate to ask anything.

In return all we ask for is that you treat our apartment with respect, please look after it :)

Have a great stay in Casa Animas! :)

Caroline, David, Yakira & Isabel

This is in a neighborhood where families live and work. A true slice of Havana's beautiful culture. The apartment was spotless and accommodated four of us. We appreciated the air conditioning as the heat and humidity can be intense.

There is a reason Casa Animas has so many positive reviews The hosts, Caroline and David, have been amazing. They responded very quickly to inquiries and helped to plan and suggest day-to-day activities. Our trip was shortly after hurricane Irma, and Caroline kept us updated about conditions and safety in the area. We took them up on the daily breakfasts which was a excellent choice. David’s mother, Isabel, is a beautiful, delightful, and patient woman. The morning breakfasts with her, my mother, and me are one of the highlights of my trip. We had fresh fruit, coffee, rolls, juice, egg, and a variety of meat every morning at a time of our choosing. The interior is nicely appointed. There is a balcony that overlooks the street with a clothes line and clothespins for the clothes we hand washed in the sink.

Casa Anima's is centrally located so that is is easy to get to all the key spots in Cuba. Isabel & Yakira are dolls and so nice and accommodating. We were greeted upon our arrival and the fridge was well stocked with water and beer. Isabel especially cooked excellent breakfasts and even helped us get "to go" food before we left for the airport. (The airport doesn't have many options so its recommended that you get a snack or something before you depart the city). Overall, we loved Cuba and our stay at Casa Animas made it that much better.

This place is an absolute gem! The accommodations themselves are great, but where it really shines is the hosts and their family. They offered many great suggestions for us which allowed us to see much more of Havana than we were expecting with our very short trip. We booked a 2hr classic car tour through them, and enjoyed the experience and our translator so much that we continued it in to a walking tour of old Havana. Caroline and David are very prompt to respond, and provide great details for a wonderful stay. We also paid for the breakfast, which we highly recommend. David's mom came over at our decided time and prepared a wonderful assortment of fresh fruit, eggs, coffee, juice, and bread. She is a very sweet lady (if you speak Spanish it helps to communicate), one of those people who leave a lasting happy memory for your trip. This stay would not have been as memorable without the kindness and generosity of this family. We are so glad we booked with them!

The host are the sweetest people I have ever met. They made sure all of our needs were met and were available to assist us with any questions and recommendations that we had. This place is literally in the heart of the city. We were able to walk to many of our destinations (avoiding taxi fares) while we were close enough to main roads where finding a taxi was not difficult at all. I enjoyed being in the midst of locals. I made the experience that much more great. I would definitely recommend staying here. One of my best experiences yet.

Caroline and David were extremely helpful with all the logistics before arriving in Havana. They set up transportation and day trips to Viñales and Veradero. They also provided a long list of recommendations for food, drink, and places to see in the city. The list was extremely helpful. We also requested breakfast in the morning that was provided by Isabel and her friend. Don't even get us started on Isabel! My girlfriends and I fell in love with her. Such a sweet lady that provided so much information, as well! Casa animas was centrally located all within walking or taxi distance to anything in the city! We plan on recommending this place to all our friends and family back home in the states! Thank you for the beautiful experience in Cuba! We will be back!

This was our first time using airbnb, and I must say we were not disappointed, thanks to the attention and care my family and I received from Caroline, David, Ysabel, and Yakira. From the moment we booked our stay at Casa Animas, we were in constant contact with either Caroline, David , Ysabel or Yakira. Caroline reached out to us as soon as our booking was confirmed and provided us with everything we needed to make our travels as smooth as possible. She arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport and provided us with much needed information on nearby restaurants, WIFI locations, landmarks to visits, and more. When we arrived we were greeted by Yakira and Ysabel and they helped us get acquainted with the apartment. Ysabel was around most of the time since Yakira works, but Yakira was still available if we needed her. Ysabel is a true gem! She genuinely cared for us and made sure we were happy. The apartment was just as I expected based on the pictures and reviews. It is a well kept, clean and comfortable apartment. The bedrooms, which are located upstairs are air-conditioned and make for a comfortable nights sleep. There isn't any air conditioning on the main floor, however, the downstairs portion of the apartment remains comfortable because the AC units in the bedrooms are strong enough to allow for good air flow as long as the doors and windows remain closed. The apartment is centrally located, so getting around is not an issue. The apartment is in a very lively area so you will be subjected to a lot of noise, even at night. Overall, I had a good experience staying at Casa Animas.
