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!

Casa Huul Kiin ist ein direkt am Strand von Golf von Mexiko gelegenes, komfortabel ausgestattetes Ferienhaus, das kaum Wünsche offen lässt. Es ist mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, man fühlt sich darin sehr wohl. Die beiden Schlafräume sowie der Wohnraum haben zum Meer hin ausgerichtete Fenster und Glasschiebetüren, an die sich eine große Terasse anschließt. Der Strand, wochentags fast menschenleer, liegt direkt davor, so dass man nach nur wenigen Schritten das herrlich warme Wasser im Golf von Mexiko genießen kann. Die Casa verfügt über einen großen, privaten Mayan Pool – ganz wunderbar zum Abkühlen und über eine beeindruckende Palapa, von wo aus man einen tollen Blick über das Meer hat. Auf dem Grundstück gibt es viele Palmen. Hier kann man entspannten Urlaub in einer paradiesischen Umgebung verbringen. Der nächstgelegene Ort ist Chelem, ca. 2 km entfernt, den nächstgelegenen großen Supermarkt mit einem vielseitigen Angebot an Waren findet man in Progreso, ca 15 km entfernt.
Herzlichen Dank auch an Lizette, die Vermieterin, die uns bei unserer Ankunft persönlich und sehr herzlich in Empfang nahm und uns eine große Schale mit Obst, Wein und diversen anderen Lebensmitteln zur Begrüßung schenkte. Sie gab auch viele Tipps zur Umgebung, Restaurants und möglichen Aktivitäten. Wir fühlten uns sehr gut aufgehoben.
This was my first experience booking a vacation home online and everything was spectacular. The listing description of the casa is spot on including layout and amenities. Lizette and her husband Gino, met us at the property and were so accommodating. They also own the property next door which is larger, and beautiful if you had a larger group and required two properties. The property was clean, well maintained, and Lizette also arranged for a cleaner to come during the week that we stayed.
Chelem was very quiet this time of year, so very relaxing. Still local restaurants were open if you felt like a night out. Easy to meet great people in town. It's proximity to Progresso, and Merida is excellent. All the conveniences you need.
I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. I would stay again.
Lizette and Gino are incredible hosts!
We visited the Yucatan for a week the end of June and made Chelem our home base for hanging out and exploring. We stayed in two houses and had a terrific time. Casa Huul Kiin was one of the houses and was particularly lovely as it is a tastefully designed and decorated 2 bedroom beach house with a great shaded wading pool, palapa for sitting and watching the sunset and front porch to enjoy the sounds of the ocean. Add a always available, excellent host in Lizette the owner and it is a perfect choice for a vacation in the Yucatan. Chelem is also a great base to start from as you get the benefit of a secluded fishing/beach town so,you can wander the beach, hire a fishing guide and eat at lots of good little resteraunts plus you are proximite to everything from Mayan Ruins on the Ruta Puuc, Cenotes galore and colonial Merida.
This was just what I needed. A beautiful place to turn off the stress and relax in the sun and sand. The house was quaint. The pictures posted fail to capture the feel of the breeze and the warmth of the sun. We are looking forward to returning as soon as possible.
This has been our 3rd trip to Casa Huul Kiin and the 2nd time for a month. I think that alone tells the story of how much we love the house. It was like going home to our own place. Gino and Lizette are special people. Their warm hugs and amazing hospitality made us feel welcome again. Our dog was happy to be back too! The house has everything to make you’re stay enjoyable. Lizette and Gino went out of their way several times help us with tours and restaurants in Merida, market for local fish, places to eat in Chelem to even helping with our car problem when we were desperate. Thank you!
The house is ideally set up to enjoy all areas from the deck in front of the beach to several areas around the pool with a fantastic view from the palapa where you can eat after you have just BQ’ed you're fresh fish! We truly hope to return to this little piece of paradise in the future.
Casa Huul Kiin was everything we expected in a vacation rental. Lizette and Gino greated us with fresh flowers, wine and a beautiful display of fresh fruits. They made every effort to make our 6 week stay the best it could be. Lizette gave me her cell number and checked in by email with lots of links to all kinds of ideas for sightseeing and tourist information. They recommended great eating places both close by and also in Merida. There are also tour books full of maps and information for day trips.
The property was well maintained, clean and just as the pictures show...Stunning.
The beach was always fun to walk on and search for that perfect seashell. I will say the pool was a bit cold but also the weather was also abnormally colder than normal.Though we enjoy many sunny days in the swimming in the gulf and sunning on the beach .
We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. The town of Chelem is only a 5 min. drive away and Merida is about 35 mins. away.( Progreso is also only 20 mins away) .Merida has several nice malls and several Walmarts ; also an historic downtown and 500 year old church; so shopping isn't a problem. There are many historic sites nearby and also a beautiful Cenote. One would probably need a car if you like adventure. There was an excellent tour guide in Chelem. Too many tours for most people but very nice fellow(Located at Taco Maya resturant, an expat owned and very good and reasonable local.
