Alejandro & Harriet

Hey, I’m Alejandro & Harriet!

We are a Cuban/British couple living in a lovely Edinburgh "Colonies" style house (we'll explain when you get here if you want to know more!) that we renovated a few years ago.

We speak Spanish, English and French, and welcome people from all over the world. Harriet works in the voluntary sector and Alejandro in front of house at theatres and venues around Edinburgh. Alejandro is a great Cuban dancer (you may get an impromptu dance lesson if you play your cards right) and Harriet enjoys walking, mindful meditation, T'ai Chi, gardening, socialising and, of course, dancing.

We go to Cuba as often as we can to visit Alejandro's wonderful friends and family in Santiago de Cuba - the epicentre of Cuban music and dance. We also like to try and visit other areas of the UK and Europe as Alejandro is really interested in the history and culture.

We like our guests to feel relaxed and comfortable in our house, so whilst we like to get to know people and allow them full use of the house during their stay, we also respect their privacy. We have made some good friends through hosting, and hope to make many more.

We also manage the bookings for the "Casa Particular" of our lovely niece, Adis, and her husband Alberto in Santiago de Cuba. Before managing the Casa Particular, Adis worked in the cultural sector and loves theatre and cinema. Alberto is an accountant at the Cuba Electrical Company and is seriously into soccer - particularly Barcelona.
