Bright & Airy Seaside Retreat For just $54 a night, you can stay in this beautifully whitewashed bed & breakfast located in the oldest part of the Malecon Habanero. Close to both the El Vedado district, a vibrant area known for its nightlife and Art Deco buildings, and the more historic Habana Vieja district, this Airbnb is truly the best of both worlds. The attentive staff, balcony with a view, and chic 19th century decor of the home all contribute to the hotel-like feel of this gorgeous retreat.
Rooftop Villa Any place that welcomes its guests with Cuban cocktails and appetizers is a place we can fully get behind. The villa takes up the entire upper level of a historic 1940 Neo-Classical Havana building and features four rooms, a fully-equipped kitchen and a private roof terrace with breathtaking views of the city. If you do decide to venture past the accommodation —though we understand why you’d want to stay in— you’ll find famous restaurants like the Anthony Bourdain-approved Café Laurent and streets filled with live music.
Large House for a Group Getaway Traveling with a large group? Rent this massive Colonial (it can accommodate 16+ guests!) and enjoy living like locals. The sprawling porch is an ideal spot for a morning coffee and the location can’t be beat. Within walking distance of all the must-sees in Havana and the famous Malecon, it’s a great base from which to explore all Cuba has to offer.
Havana Comfort At only $180 per night for seven people you cannot beat this location, comfort, and price. The apartment is beautifully decorated with vintage and Mid-Century furniture. The modern kitchen and spacious dining room invite you to shop some local produce and whip up something delicious on your own. It’s a perfect space for small groups or families.
Casa on the Beach Looking for something more relaxing and remote? Then this charming villa—only steps from the ocean—is your spot. Located a short bike ride from Trinidad, Casa Hermosa offers two cozy bedrooms, a kitchen, and a veranda to swoon over fiery orange sunsets while sipping on mojitos. Chill out in a hammock or take a ride on a complimentary bike along the beach.
Spacious House in Old Havana For you next family, reunion try this luxurious home with five bedrooms in the middle of Old Havana. Restaurants, bars, and shopping are all within walking distance. The house features sky-high ceilings, colored-glass windows, and a huge roof deck to enjoy mild summer nights. Special bonus of the house: You get a housekeeper and a cook to make your stay even more pleasant.
House with a Pool
Wouldn’t you want to plunge into this pool? We surely would. Located only a short car ride outside Havana, the house is a quiet little oasis to recharge and rejuvenate. A fully stocked fridge is awaiting you as well as on-site cook. The house also features an open-air kitchen and a dining area looking out onto the ocean.
Colonial Gem This colonial house has everything you need to enjoy your stay the Cuban way. Two balconies overlooking the bustle on the streets, a community room with a large bar, air-conditioned rooms, and even a cutepink bathroom
. Enough for eight people, but the price is comparable to what you pay for a queen bed hotel room. We call that a good deal.
Elegant Villa We are swooning over the pink marble columns in this colonial bed & breakfast. Beautiful architecture, antique furniture, and refined decoration make this house feel more like a classic hotel. Again, as with many Airbnbs in Cuba, the home comes with a cook who will whip up delicious meals.
Modern Cuba Apartment More on the modern side, this apartment for two has everything you need for a relaxing getaway to Cuba. The mix of white, wood, simple furniture, and exposed brick walls gives this cozy apartment a warm, slightly industrial vibe.
Stylish Spanish Mansion Enjoy your private room in this impressively, elegant Spanish-style villa in the middle of Havana. The guests are free to use all other community rooms, like the spacious kitchen, the salon, and the green patio. Only a five-minute drive to Old Havana, this house will transport you to the golden days of Cuba.
A Romantic Getaway We can picture ourselves escaping the noon heat for a nap in this opulent canopy bed. The private room with a private bath is located in a charming bed & breakfast perched on a hill overlooking Havana. When it gets too hot, we highly recommend taking a dip in the pool.
Little Glam Palace This one would be amazing for a bachelorette weekend trip. The small renovated palace with bright and airy rooms looks like modern Marie Antoinette has decorated it herself. The white walls are the perfect canvas for splashes of red and black color featured throughout the space. A big bonus is the fee breakfast and the huge roof deck for cocktails.
