  • Hemingways old home is now a museum open to the public, a real look back in time, and a beautiful house and garden.  more »

  • Excellent historical house where Ernest Hemingway lived for many years! See his boat, bedroom, living room, tower equipped with spyglass to watch Eva Gardner while she swam naked in the pool... see it all, and hear the stories of his life in Cuba.
  • Beautifully maintained piece of history. You cannot go inside, but you are able to see most of the restored areas from the windows. Make sure you go up the tower if you're able.
  • Really enjoyed seeing the villa Hemingway had just outside La Habana. Bring enough time to soak in the atmosphere! Even though you can only see through the windows (or exactly because of that?), you get a good sense of what it might have been like for Hemingway and his visitors.
  • This is a must visit for Hemingway fans. The house is pretty much as he left it and there is plenty to see even though access into the house is not permitted. The guided tour is worth taking.
  • Well preserved home where Hemingway lived while in Cuba. They did a nice job curating the home. Well appointed grounds with great views.
