About the property

Escape to our beautiful hacienda in Tulum and enjoy your Caribbean vacation!

Located in Tulum, Mayan Riviera, Mexico our hacienda Kin Nah is a unique property. We are opening our home for seasonal rental for our second season. If you are looking for privacy and a home away from home, Kin Nah is the place for you. A bit about your accommodation: Your apartment is completely private and has a living and dining area, a full sized and fully equipped kitchen, full bathroom, private bedroom and a large private outdoor palapa terrace complete with hammock. It is fully furnished and includes quality linens, bedding and cooking implements. Comfortable, quality mattresses and pillows are provided for your comfort and enjoyment. Beautiful colored concrete walls and lighting make this a peaceful and relaxing space. The unique environmental pool is surrounded by onyx, which is lit at night, and the gardens are filled with local plants, flowers, orchids and tropical fruit. The property is very peaceful and private and is a short 8 block walk to the downtown pueblo of Tulum. We are located on the edge of Tulum bordering on the jungle and enjoy the parrots and toucans and a more peaceful environment than in the center of town. The incredible Caribbean ocean is only minutes away by car and is rated as one of the top 10 in the world ... it is truly amazing! In addition, Tulum boasts many great restaurants and tourist attractions, besides the obvious allure of the sunshine, palm trees and that incredible turquoise water. Also known for its ruins, cenotes, snorkelling, diving and fishing, this is the perfect place for your holiday escape.

This is not a party house. This is our home and we want all of our guests to also feel at home here. Bienvenidos!

Quiet time at KIN NAH is 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Non-renting guests are not permitted in the home after 11:00 p.m. or before 7:00 a.m. Kin Nah is NOT a party house but if you are looking for a beautiful place to relax and call home while vacationing in the Mayan Riviera you've found the right place. Check out our reviews. Perfect escape for couples who want to get away from it all and discover the amazing Mayan Riviera and Tulum. Saludos, Corrine & Jack

We are Canadians who live part-time in Mexico. We're a married couple (we married in Mexico). We have 5 awesome grown children and one adorable Mexican rescue dog. We spend our winters in Tulum and the rest of the year we live in British Columbia, Canada. In Canada we live in the great Canadian wilderness and many enjoy outdoor activities. Hubby is a fishing fanatic so going south allows him to fish all year round! We enjoy travelling and the tropics. Making a home for ourselves in Tulum has been quite the adventure! We came first on a vacation and the following year, when deciding on where to go, we realized we wanted to return to Tulum as there was so much still to see there and we really enjoyed our first short 10 day visit! This happened year after year!!!! One of the things we found lacking during our vacations was some privacy. Most hotels and rentals come with many suites and therefor many people. We wanted to escape to somewhere we could spend some quiet time. The obvious step was to make a home there. We love the Mayan ... both the place and the people. There's so much to do here! Tons of amazing cenotes and beaches and wonderful restaurants and other great venues! Always a festival or fiesta goin on ... love that about the Mexican people! Workwise, hubby is a drywall contractor in Canada and I work part-time with him as well as seasonally on forest fires (have for 15 years). Started as a firefighter and now travel around the province to the larger fire events. Hubby has owned his own drywall company for 40 years and we do mostly custom homes. He is also an artist and has been published in a book, Artists of the Nicola Valley. His oil paintings are mostly scenery of Canada but I tell him he's going to have to do palm trees and beaches! We struggled with the name for our home and we finally decided on KIN NAH, which means 'sun house'. We hope you'll love it as much as we do. Bienvenidos!

CORRINE AND JACK ANDREASEN purchased this house in 2011


We actually bought the lot and designed the home ourselves. Attention to detail and design helped to make this the amazing property that it is. We started in 2008 and we finished in May 2011. When people ask us how it is building a house in Mexico, we just tell them 'It isn't for the light of heart'!!! Nuff said!

What makes this house unique

Privacy! So many properties here are communal and you are living in a condo or townhouse with many close neighbours. We are a house and so that allows you a little bit more privacy and solitude. This is not a party house. If you wanna party down ... please choose another location. Thank you. Quiet time is between 11:00 pm and 7:00 am. We are close to downtown but not living next door to the roosters. Still close to shopping and restaurants and only minutes from the ocean. Our environmental pool uses very few chemicals and is surrounded by lit onyx rock and waterfalls at night. Perfect for those midnight swims (that you are not allowed to have in the all inclusives).


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

We had our own little 'apartment' with great porch to relax on. The pool was another great attraction. Property was immaculate and well maintained. Owners were very helpful in suggesting activities, restaurants, good beaches. Cenotes, ruins and other popular attractions in Tulum area close by and easy to access. I would highly recommend staying at Kin-Nah if you are looking for a place to stay in Tulum

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 days with Corrine and Jack! What a special couple!

They helped us find the best places to eat AND to shop! Even with no

air conditioner the unit was breezy and cool. The ceiling fans helped and

there was a big floor fan if needed. We loved the balcony with the

hammock and enjoyed coffee there every morning. It is a quiet place and

wonderful for relaxing. The pool was fantastic and a great place to unwind

in the afternoons. Everything was clean and well-maintained!

We hope to visit again in the future!

Thanks again!

Our Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Kin Nah enjoying the lovely pool and our private deck overlooking the garden and pool. The location at the edge of town worked well as a "base camp" for walking into Tulum or taking a cab to the beaches, which are extraordinarily beautiful: clear, warm water, white sand, great local eateries, palm trees, and comfortable lounge chairs. Corrine was a gracious host during our stay, always there to welcome us when we returned home and full of information about restaurants, activities, and transportation. Teri took great care of our apartment, which was spotless, and helped with advice about things to do in the area. We loved being a part of a neighborhood, having coffee on the balcony in the morning, listening to the birds, and making friends with the street dogs. Pete, the "roof dog" across the street, was especially endearing. The weather was great; it took a bit of getting used to the heat and humidity, and air conditioning would have been great, but having ceiling fans and a floor fan helped. We would like to have stayed longer, enjoying the laid back atmosphere of Tulum and the friendliness and gentleness of the local people. Last year, we stayed at an all-inclusive resort in Cancun. Being at Kin Nah in Tulum was a 100% better experience!! We will definitely be back!

Great place to stay in Tulum

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at Kin Nah, our last seven days of a two-month visit to Mexico. The house, with its meticulously tended grounds and absolutely beautiful pool, was the perfect oasis before our return to Canada. Located on the western edge of Tulum, within a short drive or reasonable walk to the town centre, Kin Nah offers a restful lodging away from the busy centre and beach but within easy reach of both. After days of kayaking, birding or exploring ruins at Cobá or Muyil, we spent many a peaceful hour on the covered balcony. Our host Corrine offered a very warm, friendly and engaging welcome as well as tips on how to enjoy the delights of Tulum and area. We highly recommend Kin Nah for your visit to this delightful corner of Mexico.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at KIN NAH for 2 wonderful weeks. What a pleasant surprise. We have stayed in many places in Mexico over the years (even 5 Star Resorts) The location was great for us. Very quiet hardly any traffic. You could use her bikes or a taxi was 30 Pesos to Centro. The Fiesta was on and we enjoyed hearing the musica from the square every evening. Our room was at the front of the house overlooking the pool. We really enjoyed having our coffee each AM on OUR own patio listening and watching the birds and reading our books. Sunsets were lovely each night from our patio.

Our stay was the end of a 5 weeks holiday a perfect ending. Just about every day after our travels we loved the pool. Easy access for me who has knee issues. Deep enough in case you like to dive in. Pool was clean as can be. Corrine was extremely helpful answering any questions and her suggestions of where to eat and things to do were awesome. The kitchen was fully equipped with anything you would need. We even used the Popcorn Popper. She had coolers for the beach and made ice that was ready in the fridge. Also waiting for us was a huge bowl of fresh fruit, hot sauce and a neat surprise she brought from Canada for her guests. She had a bit of coffee and filters just in case we didn't get to the store. If you needed anything she would provide it (we didn't need anything it was all there)

Everything everywhere was Spotless. Teri did an excellent job of keeping everything clean and tidy. I appreciated her lovely garden with so many plants and lovely flowers. We enjoyed a fresh Papaya from her tree. Sorry we did not meet Jack he was in Canada.

Their home was built with tender loving care and that is the way they look after all of it.

Thanks Corrine for a nice way to end our holiday in Mexico. We hope to be back one day.

Sorry I cannot include the lovely photos I took of Kin Nah. What you see in her photos is exactly what it is like.

It was the perfect place for us. The apartment is nicely decorated and confortable. There is a pool and a beautiful garden. It is a little bit out downtown (south of town) but we had a car so this wasn't an issue for us.

Corinne and her mom (Jack wasn't there) were so nice and helpful. When we arrived there was a fruit basket on the table and and beers in the fridge. She gave us great suggestions for restaurants along the beach and in town. We highly recommend the place. We will come back!.

Car: not necessary

Tulum is the destination for your tropical pleasures. You can do as little or as much as you want here. There's so much to see and explore. Amazing cenotes, ruins, snorkelling, diving, beaches, eco-tours, fishing, swimming, bird watching, kite boarding, jungle adventures and tourist attractions that include zip-lines, maya shows and zoos. Or a beach and a book on a deserted beach. Great shopping, excellent restaurants and the most amazing beaches in the world!!! Come and stay with us and enjoy our little piece of paradise! We are located in Tulum just outside of the main downtown area edging on the jungle. It is quieter than in the pueblo but only an 8 minute walk to downtown and a ten minute car ride to the beach. We know you will love your visit to Tulum and we hope to see you again next year!
