Sara and Mario's place in Vedado, Havana is a great place from which to explore La Habana. We take care of the listing from here in New York and Jose's parents receive you there.

Once you have booked with us, Sara and Mario (University Professors at La Universidad de Habana) will receive you at the apartment. We set up everything here before you take off. Sara and Mario will give you an intro to the apartment and how things work, a map of Havana and provide you with their telephone numbers in case you want recommendations or assistance while traveling around Havana or within the country.
This is our apartment when we visit Cuba, so we ask our guests to treat it with respect. Sara, Mario, José and I are really excited about sharing Cuba and its beauty with you. So we hope you enjoy your stay to the fullest.
There are no very tall structures in Vedado, but this apartment is not the only one in the building. So, we ask that you please enjoy your stay in the Caribbean but that you treat your neighbors with kindness. You may smoke on the semi-outdoor balcony space, but not inside the apartment.
We're Kristen and José. Kristen is from Bloomington, Indiana and José is from Holguín, Cuban. We met while living in Madrid, Spain and then decided to move to New York together.
We both love traveling and experiencing local life wherever we go. We prefer to stay in homes instead of hotels and live as the locals do. Our family has a lovely apartment in the neighborhood of Vedado in Havana where you will be greeted by the other owners of the home, Sara and Mario, and cared for as if you were part of our family. We hope that there you will find the comfort, culture, and happiness uniquely found in Cuba.
Enjoy your stay!
