Casa particular means private house in Spanish. A casa particular is owned by the person renting it out or renting out rooms in it. The owners do have to be licensed, pay a fee, and follow the book-keeping, monthly in-home book inspection, and daily phone reporting regulations.
There are third party booking agencies like AirBnB, but you can book directly with the owners through a site like CubaJunky. Most rooms in a casa particular, booked directly with the owner, are about 25-30 CUC (unless something out of the ordinary), even in Havana. I'm seeing prices closer to U$58 on TA.
Make your reservation with the owner by email or phone, confirm it a couple of days ahead of arrival, and pay on arrival in cash (CUC).
