Beautiful home on a beautiful beach, in a beautiful country

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed for two weeks the last half of February. The house is clean, beautiful and well equipped, beds are comfortable. The house is located the perfect distance from chelem centro. Relaxing pool and palapa in the front yard to sit and enjoy the evening. If your looking for a peaceful and relaxing time, look no further. Perfect for four people. Lizette and Gino are excellent hosts and were extremely helpful from the time we landed, until the sad day we left. They are very proud of their beautiful home and beautiful country. Highly recommend this beautiful Casa.

thanks Lizette and Gino for letting us stay at Casa Huul Kiin, we will be back!

A wonderful 12 days at Casa Huul Kiin !!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we arrived at Casa Huul Kiin, we were met by Lizette and Gino, who took the time to give us a great tour of this wonderful place. We felt like it was "our" place for 12 great days. A basket of fresh fruit and beverages awaited us. Along with a nice booklet, thoughtfully written out, with places to go and eat at. A really nice touch for Americans like us. The town of Chelem is a very friendly and we felt very safe. The Yucatan in general is a great experience. We logged almost 1800 km on our rental car exploring it. Always coming home to a wonderful Sunset, the sound of waves crashing on the beach and, a cool breeze. On the few days we were too tired to explore, we took advantage of the very nice beach and Mayan pool. My favorite spot was the big hammock outside. My Wife, Peggy would read her book while gazing out at the beautiful water. Then a trip into Chelem for supper. I loved the Pescado Frito (fried fish) and ate it often. We even cooked fresh seafood brought up from Campeche, a couple of times. Another sweet thing lizette arranged for us. The seafood was very fresh and very well priced. Speaking of Lizette and Gino, on the few times we needed to reach them, all we had to do was text them. A response was usually the same hour, if not instant. My advice on this area is, take it all in !! The Mayan ruins, the Spanish missions, the market section in Merida on Sunday, the Choco Story museum in Xucmal and, so many more places. Enter this fascinating area of Mexico with a sense of adventure and patience. Life here is slower and the roads are sometimes not very well marked. But, that is what vacation memories are made of. Thank you,.....Lizette and Gino for making our vacation memories very special. We will always remember our wonderful 12 days at Casa Huul Kiin and the friendship we shared with you both. Muchas gracias por los maravillosos recuerdos hechos en casa huul kiin !!, Mike and Peggy Manee, Tarpon Springs, Florida (April 2018)

Excellent Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Lizette and Gino are the best hosts we've had yet after many years of renting vacation homes!! Beautiful, kind and friendly people ready to help with any issue. Very welcoming!

The house itself is extremely well equipped, better than most we've stayed at with things like electric juicer, blender, lots of food storage containers and proper cooking utensils. Many places have only the basics but this kitchen was excellent.

Yes, as many have said there is quite low water pressure but I'm certain that is the infrastructure in the area NOT the house. Home owners can only do so much.

The property is incredibly quiet for the most part, the first weekend we were there was a long weekend and a number of families came into the surrounding homes most of which were empty through the weekdays. Even so, nothing coming even close to crowded by any means, you just lose a bit of the extreme quiet.

The beach and the water here were lovely and clean. I was not fond of the fact that it was almost constantly windy but that is the case on many Caribbean coasts and the reason it is comfortable at night without air conditioning. The house is very nicely equipped in terms of security (though I felt the entire area very, very safe).

The surrounding area was mainly quiet and not too hard to find groceries etc. with a rental car. There were some restaurants we found on Google that when we went there, they were not open (even though Google said they were ), we gathered that since this area is 'cottage country' for people who live inland, and mainly is occupied in July and August, things are very quiet during the winter. (note: BEST restaurant in the area - Crabster in Progresso, we went there about 4 times as it was heads and tails above the rest. )

Overall, we were very pleased, the house, beach, yard, pool, furniture, linens.... everything was lovely and very good value.

Lizette and Gino, thanks so much for your hospitality!
