Airbnb said Thursday that it would start accepting listings in Cuba, following last year’s steps toward normalization of relations between the island nation and the United States.


Here are five of the coolest places you can book through the home-sharing site if you’re planning a trip to Havana.

Residencia Mariby

This house near the Havana waterfront can be yours for just $350 per night. It was built in 1906 and was once visited by Jean Paul Gaultier. You’ll even get a welcoming cocktail.

Casa Vitrales

This Havana home is a B&B, but you can also rent the whole thing. It has a sunny terrace where breakfast can be served.

Luxury Miramir

At $700 a night, this one is seriously luxurious. It features 6 bedrooms, a swimming pool, and chef and maid service.

Casa Gisela

This listing doesn’t have many details featured, but the pictures include a swimming pool and lots of indoor plants.

Villa Megano

This is a seriously expensive listing, setting visitors back $1,000 a night. It may just be worth it, though, with a beautiful brick terrace overlooking the ocean.
