As the number of tourists traveling to Cuba increases every year, demand for hotel accommodations is greater than ever before, opening the market to housing options with services like Airbnb.

In 2015, a record 3.5 million visitors traveled to the island. In the first four months of 2016 alone more than 94,000 U.S. citizens have visited the island.

In Havana, the legendary "Casa Blanca," located on the famous Malecón Avenue, is what is called a "casa particular," and has rented rooms to travelers for the last three years. Siblings Yosvani and Yanet Coca, and their sister Maité Caballero, began using Airbnb in 2015, which has attracted many more American tourists.

"We receive a lot of American tourists weekly," Caballero said. "Most American people want to come here to visit this house. They feel at home because we treat them like family."

As their success continues, they plan to expand their private business and rent out another house before the end of the year.
