For starters Danay & Isaac were truly amazing! We booked our airbnb 2 days before our departure to Cuba and instantly they accepted our stay and immediately arranged a chauffeur to pick us up at the airport and helped us with setting up the perfect itinerary for our stay. Needless to say, we were a little unprepared for the trip but Danay & Issac helped with every question, reservation, taxi pick up, & accommodations. I wouldn't have chosen any other host to guide us through Havana. 5 stars hands down :)

Thank you Danay and Issac for our amazing stay in Havana. We really enjoyed your hospitality. Issac, your breakfast buffet and lobster dinner with fresh Cuban vegetable dishes was absolutely amazing. We appreciate all the local knowledge and good advice you gave us. We loved our time on the balcony watching raw Cuba in motion while listening to salsa music, and you guys teaching us how to dance. All while drinking a mojito and smoking a Cuban cigar that you guys so gratefully offered us. And thank you for organizing our transportation and accommodation in Trinidad. You guys went above and beyond as spectacular hosts! All the best for your future. We definitely recommend your place.

Our hosts were nothing short of amazing! We were nervous about not booking an entire apartment but are so glad that we got to stay with them. They were very entertaining and helped us with anything we needed in Havana. If they offer to make you dinner, do it! The lobster that they prepared for us was one of the best deals and overall meals that we had in Cuba!

When I return to Havana, staying with Danay and her husband Issac is the only option. I chose their place based on their reviews and it was the best decision. Danay was extremely helpful. She even accommodated my friend staying with us last minute. She and Issac helped us navigate Havana. They made sure no one over charge us for anything. They apartment was very clean. The room was equipped with air. 24hr hot water. They even prepared breakfast for us. Danay even went out with us one night. We never felt uncomfortable. It was definitely a home away from home. I would recommend their place to anyone planning to visit Havana. Just be ready to climb some serious stairs. Issac was kind enough to carry our bags up. Five stars!!!

Danay and Isaac were amazing hosts who made us feel welcomed in Havana and treated us like family. They went out of their way to accommodate us. We opted for the breakfast a couple of mornings, as well as the dinner prepared by Isaac... ah-mazing! Ultimately, we wished we had more time. I've already recommended Danay and Isaac's place to another friend who is going to Havana, and I know that this will be where I stay when I return.

We chose to stay with Danay and Isaac based on all we had read from previous reviewers, and we were so pleased we did! The location allowed us to readily walk to both Vedado and to Habana Vieja, it's close to the Maelcon, and it's along the fixed route for the Almendrones. The neighborhood is more residential than tourist area, which we appreciated for the authenticity of the experience. The room is definitely comfortable and we felt very much at home. Breakfast was delicious and we loved cooking dinner with them, too - it was splendid! Danay and Isaac are amazing hosts, and their spirit and generosity made our visit so memorable. Not only did they assist with so many arrangements, we truly valued their willingness to spend time with us and share perspectives and laughter. Have faith in all who have recommended their casa to-date and stay with them - you'll be so glad you did.
