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!

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!

Beautful Home with a wonderful host.

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to stay at this beautiful home at the beginning of December. From the start my communications with the owner Lizette were exceptional. She always responded expediently to my questions and concerns and kept me up to date when she was on Holiday and might not be able to get back to me in an expedient manner (she always did).

On our day of arrival, we were 1 hour early. Not a problem for Lizette and Gino who were just wonderful hosts. On our day of departure Lizette what right on time to see us off and in between she was always available to help with any question. She also offered great advice on where to eat and what to see in the area.

Huul Kiin is a beautiful property. It is well equipped for all of your daily needs. The internet worked flawlessly, very important to us. We spent most of our time on the veranda overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. At this time of year, we saw very few people on the beach and felt like we had it all to ourselves. We spent time watching the pelicans and at night gazing at the stars. We had a rental car and it was only a few minutes to Centro for Restaurants and Shopping.

The property was extremely clean and well cared for which made for a very comfortable stay which was not nearly long enough. Lizzette has a wonderful sense of style and it shows in the furnishings and decoration.

The pool area was beautiful, unfortunately the water was to chilly for us this time of the year, but it was beautiful to look at…….

I would not hesitate to recommend this property if you are looking for a quiet, laid back vacation, with the convenience of Centro a few minutes by car and all there is to see and do in the in this area. We will be back to the Chelem area and Huul Kiin.

Thank You Lizette and Gino and hope to see you in 2018.
