“This is the place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014 for a stay in January 2014
people found this review helpful

My husband and our four grown children with their partners have just spent a blissful week at Havana House in celebration of my 60th birthday. This is THE place for a family get away. I promise you will be in heaven. Five enormous bedrooms with private bath (two have jacuzzis); two eating areas inside, one on the terrace by the pool; a library; a media/living room; giant kitchen and fully stocked pantry and laundry room; barbecue. And then, there's the pool...and the little private sandy beach with seating area (canoes, included)...and the lawn...and the piece de resistance: a two story high, log and palm-roofed tiki hut with an original, 15 foot, 1950s Cuban bar. Did I say that the beautiful Atlantic ocean is 100 yards away? Or that the property backs onto the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park with ducks, turtles and dense tropical forest? We rented bikes and rode up and down the coast road to restaurants, fishing, water taxis, shopping. You name it. The house is in the middle of everything and yet, you would never know it as it is so quiet and lush. Tim the manager and David the agent were terrific helping us settle in and attending to every whim. Worth every penny.
