Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Huul Kiin. Lizette, the owner, was very prompt, both in meeting us at the property and checking us out at the end of our stay. The beds were comfortable and the hammocks great, for use indoors and out. Our favorite part of the day, was having the sun rise in the east, shine through our window and the palm trees. We sat on the patio in the padded beach chairs and watched the pelicans fish for hours--it was lovely! Provisions in the house were more than suitable with beach towels, bath towels, and plenty of kitchen items. There was warm water which was wonderful in the shower and for washing dishes. The refrigerator was large and worked well. Lizette provided over 20 gallons of drinking water and also gave us a welcome tray of fresh fruit, wine and coffee which we really enjoyed!! In addition, she had a vase of beautiful flowers on the dining room table. She is an incredibly warm and wonderful hostess. She provided us with her cell phone number and told us to call should we need anything at all. She checked in with some friends of ours to make sure we were doing okay. She also inquired about taxis and costs to travel from Chelem to Merida, and put us in touch with Fredy, whom we did call on for transportation a couple of times. He too was extremely friendly and accommodating! Lizette told us that she hopes to make some changes on the house; adding a bathroom and possibly an upstairs bedroom and a pool. Those would be great additions! I believe a second bathroom which did not connect right to the sandy beach outside would be a very good idea--it would be much cleaner. The view from a proposed second story would be incredible! My suggestions to Lizette were that she have someone clean up the beach and all around the casita prior to any guest arrival. I know it is difficult to stay on top of this because the wind blows every day and the tide brings in refuse, but it truly needs to be done so people feel it is clean. I also would suggest a more thorough cleaning of the house and the refrigerator especially. Keeping a beach house clean, is also hard due to the sand, but I think a little better cleaning would make most guests feel more comfortable. My final comments to people renting this property would be that you either need to really stock up on groceries for your stay and/or have access to a vehicle as there isn't anything within walking distance. This property is quiet and nice. Nos encanto!

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!

Our 2nd Home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our home away from home after a very relaxing stay at Casa Huul Kiin. Gino and Lizette welcomed us with open arms and friendly greetings as always. Their home has been a special treat for us over the past 4 years. Our Black Lab is always happy to be back and swim in the warms waters of the Yucatan. We have truly enjoyed spending time in their home with all the amenities. There was always a place to sit and enjoy the weather, being either the beach, back deck, front pool area or the view from the palapa. There are so many sites to see in the area, your time will be quickly filled.

Thank you Lizette and Gino for your friendship and kind hospitality over these past four years.

The layout and size of Huul Kiin was great for two couples & the beach in front was very nice.

  • 5 of 5

Huul Kinn is a very clean and well designed house. It is situated in a good area where there are other very nice homes on the beach. The beach in front of the house was one of the best in the Chelem and Chuburna area - great for taking long walks and for swimming. The many friendly people in the area also helped make our stay very pleasant. Lizette, who speaks very good English, was a very caring and good host.

A fantastic home on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Hull Kiin for two weeks and loved every minute. We flew into Cancun and drove with a rental car to Chelem. A long but easy drive. The beach house was great, exactly like the pictures. Lizette met us at the house with warm greetings and wine and went over the basics. The house was well equipped, everything we needed was there hairdryer, iron etc. The beach and pool were perfect. We spent many a morning/evening on the front terrace watching the sun rise and set. We cooked a lot and found everything we needed as far as cookware, dishes and cutlery. Chelem is well located and we explored the area extensively. Dzibilchaltun, Ek-Balam, Izamal, Hacienda Yaxcopoil, Valladolid, Uxmal and Merida were all an easy drive away. We found groceries in Progreso and Merida. We are vegetarians and thought we might find it a challenge but we found food at some of the local restaurants (check out the Bistro Masaai Maya's pizza) and lots of food at grocery stores to cook ourselves. Lizette was very helpful through the whole process, booking, directions, check-in/out etc. She also provided a great list of local attractions to help plan our visit. We would definitely stay at this rental again it was a great value and was perfect place for our vacation.

Fantastic stay at Casa Huul Kiin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (from San Diego) flew into Merida and rented a car. We made the easy trip from the airport to Casa Huul Kiin--Lizette's directions were very helpful. Once we arrived at the property, Lizette and Gino were there to greet us (with a bottle of wine and local fruits). They welcomed us to their beautiful property. They are such a nice and friendly couple! They gave us a tour of the property and also gave us lots of information and suggestions about places to go. The property is EXACTLY like the photos. It is right on the beach. The interior is nicely designed and was clean, and the house is very well-equipped. The pool and palapa are gorgeous. We were so happy and excited when we arrived to this beautiful oasis! Often times, places are not exactly as they appear in the photos, but this house was even beyond what we were expecting!

The beach in front of the house was the perfect getaway for us. It was quiet and the water was beautiful for swimming. A local fisherman drove by the property each day to offer us freshly-caught fish for sale at a cheap price. We loved staying in Chelem because it was so quiet and relaxing, yet with our rental car, it was so easy to take day excursions to many places in the Yucatan. We went to Celestun to see the flamingos, went to a working hacienda (Sotuta de Peon), and went into Merida. There are so many other things to do and see in this area, but we also just wanted to relax at the house and enjoy the beautiful beach there!

Overall, I can't say enough wonderful things about this house and about Lizette and Gino. They made the trip BACK to the house (from their home in Merida) on the day we left to say goodbye to us. If you are interested in staying in this part of Mexico, you should DEFINITELY book this property. We felt it was such a good price for everything we got. We will remember this trip always, and are looking forward to returning to Casa Huul Kiin. Gracias Lizette and Gino!!!!!
