Ramiro offers a modern house with terrace, living-room, two bedrooms, a kitchen and dining-room, and a great central location. There is a wide roof that can be used as a solarium, or for a night under the stars. Ramiro speaks English fluently; at your request, he will provide contacts with other accommodations in the provinces to make your travels around Cuba easier and more enjoyable. Ramiro is a great cook and provides breakfast at an additional cost of 4 CUC. Daily housekeeping is provided. A great place to start your Cuban vacation.

Best place to stay in Cuba. Ramiro is so friendly and convenient... he helped us in finding other places to stay for the rest of our travel and advised us on many other things. He stayed in touch with us to be sure all was going well in Cuba. Ramiro is also the only guy speaking English on the Island :-) I warmly recommend this address.

Ramiro definitely helped make our stay in Havana enjoyable! The airport pick up and drop off was crucial as the Havana airport is quite chaotic outside. He provided us with all the information we needed to navigate the city and we enjoyed our morning conversations over breakfast. It's a little difficult grabbing a cab from his place, but we were able to make due and walked to busier streets to hail a ride into the city. The house is very clean and comfortable. We highly recommend staying with Ramiro when you visit Havana!

Thanks for the nice review Colleen. It was a pleasure to have you as a guest, and we're glad to hear your visit to Havana was enjoyable. It is true there are not many taxis on the street outside Ramiro's House, and this is one of the reasons our neighborhood is quiet at night. People can usually find a taxi a couple of blocks away near the Plaza de la Revolucion. From our house, many guests walk the 20-30 minutes to various locations in the city center. It is a good opportunity to see how Cubans live in their neighborhoods and walking is very safe. Hope you will visit again! Ramiro / Marshall

I arrived with my bicycle and it wasn't a problem. Easy to find from the airport. Easy bicycling in every directions. Ramiro's english is so good, I forgot I wanted to learn spanish. I listened Tv in spanish. Breakfast and supper was great.

I travelled to Cuba on my own, and wanted to start my journey with an authentic Cuban-experience. Since I dont speak two words of spanish, and did not know a lot about the country, the best option for me was to start my visit with an english speaking, local host that can help me navigate and plan my travels. To make a long story short, the second day in Cuba, I had to have an operation, which was rough, as I do not speak the language and had some trouble with the insurances. Ramiro could not have been more helpful! He went out of his way, visited me every day in the hospital, translated and genuinly cared about my well being. Due to the cirucmstances I stayed much longer with him than initially planned, and I enyoed it! We had talks about Cuba, Cuban history, his personal experience, best things to do, and so on. My whole journey was then influenced by his advise, and his friends all over the islands. It enabled me to have a very authentic insight, as far as I can tell, and I am thankful for that as well. For the hard facts: he now has two rooms, both with Air Conditioning (necessary in June-September), has backup water tanks, and provides filtered water at no charge. His home is not in the centre, which I personally enjoyed (less noisy, less smog, fewer people), but means that you either take the bus (4 US cents & 5 min most days) or walk (35-45 min). I did both, and never used the cabs, which are always an option. Before this becomes a book, let me just repeat, that you wont find a more friendly, caring and most likely better informed host in Havana. I cant prove it, but it sounds good, doest it. Ramiro became a friend to me, and I hope will become one to you as well.

Our family of 5 just returned home from Havana, and right from the start Ramiro was there taking care of business - Airport pickup was arranged, arranging transport to Trinidad, hotline support when when next casa particulate suddenly wasn't reserved as it actually was. I can go on and on. Not only is Ramiro a guy you can trust your life with - he is also extremely sympathetic and empathetic and we had the fortune to stay in his lovely casa the first 3 days - and his knowledge and advise made our 10 days in Cuba a wonderful experience. we met again with Ramiro and his wife on the way home in Havana after a trip to Varadero, and enjoyed drinks on a Havana terrasse and talking about Cuba. Go visit Cuba, and go visit Ramiro first ! Lovely breakfast, the smoothies were the best of all casas we visited :-)
