Excellent house in an awesome neighborhood! Magdalena, the housekeeper, is a sweetheart and will take great care of the house each day. I highly recommend agreeing to have Marcos cook breakfast for you everyday. It was one of the highlights of the trips to be greeted each morning with a plate of fresh fruit, eggs, breakfast meats, bread, coffee, and fresh juice. Plus, he is extremely pleasant and can help connect you with anything you may need in the city. You will not regret the small price of having him do this for you everyday. He also offers dinner, if you wish. We didn't do this, as we wanted to explore the city at night.
Nuevo Vedado is about 15 minutes from Old Havana but in a very quiet part of town, clean, and nice. There is a great bar and restaurant across the corner, El Bosque, which has very friendly workers and a nice outdoor sitting area. There is a park behind the house with a nice river, small waterfalls, and forest. If you want some nightlife entertainment and in your 20s or 30s, make your way through the forest on Saturday nights (just follow the music). There is electronic dance music and dancing until late. Very safe and a great experience.
Whenever I take other people to Havana, I will certainly recommend this place, enthusiastically.
