Private house of the 60's by Emilio Castro. It was recently restored of brutalist style. It has a garden, a lattice wall, it is surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and it is flanked by fire trees which give name to the street and the house

The space
Flamboyanes House was designed in the mid-60's by Emilio Castro. It was recently restored to conserve this interesting example of the brutalist style of domestic architecture. It is a rare work by this very prestigious Cuban architect. He is especially known for designing baseball stadiums with a capacity of 10000 people in various Cuban cities. This style blends with his own ideological beliefs of social utopias with socialistic characteristics, influenced by the work of architects such as Le Corbusier, Eero Saarinen as well as Alison and Peter Smithson.
The house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms in the house, one of them located upstairs and the other two on the ground floor of the house. The accommodation is such that it could form two entirely separate spaces sharing the common areas such as living room, dining room, kitchen and gardens. Breakfast and daily cleaning services are included in the price.

Guest access
This catalogued example of heritage architecture is complemented with original furniture of the 50’s as well as decorative elements of the 30’s and 40’s. Further, on the walls there is a selection of Cuban contemporary visual arts on its walls, by internationally renowned artists as well as emerging artists who can be found in some of the best Latin American art collections.
Daily housekeeping and garden maintenance is provided to make your stay more comfortable. Fully equipped kitchen for guest use. Laundry service. Our staff will be happy to help you to rent a car (vintage or not, with or without a driver), hiring specialized tour guides, scheduling visits to artist studios or in order to enjoy Cuban Gastronomy recommending the best restaurants or “paladares”.
The design of common spaces, both spatially and functionally, facilitates both independence and also enjoyment for a family or a group of friends.

29th Street (popularly known as Calle Ancha and / or Flamboyanes Avenue) provides great seclusion to the house and the garden surrounding this two-story house which offers two entirely separate spaces with their own bathroom, linked by a sculptural staircase. The discreet and elegant neighbourhood has houses dating from the 50's all of which have been architecturally designed and constructed embodying the exciting move into modernity and the approach of the space age. All of the houses are very individual and all with their own gardens.

During your stay
The purpose of the house is none other than to provide visitors a flavour of the enormous sensitivity of Havana in which the raw interest of the dialogue between artistic disciplines, is transmuted into a space of ease in which the visitor is surrounded by beauty, harmony and serenity.
The attention paid to guests will be shaped according to the guests’ individual needs but at the same time total discretion and independence of the individual will be ensured. The service staff will leave the house once their work is finished. Reception of the guests will be at the house or at the Jose Marti airport in La Havana. Professional assistance is provided to solve any queries or problems encountered.
The aim is that the traveller will feel at home, get to know Cojímar village, its surroundings, and discover Havana during your stay, “infected by the fascination those who knows how to live in the most wonderful city in the world” (from the movie “Fresa y Chocolate” - Strawberry and Chocolate).
