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!

Extras include: welcome fruit basket, CD/MP3 player/ toaster/ coffee maker/ blender/ Cooler and Picnic supplies/ hammock. High speed WIFI has recently been installed at the house.

Massages, pedicures, manicures, facials, relaxation treatments, yoga retreats, fishing, diving and certifications, cenote cave dives, snorkeling tours and private tourist escapes can all be arranged for an additional fee. Dental vacations can also be arranged in advance.

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).

Peaceful, comfortable, clean, safe and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Kin Nah is exactly as advertised, lovely, quiet and spotlessly clean with a sparkling pool, and the area felt very safe. Comfortable queen bed, lots of hot water, Lots of lights and electrical outlets, air conditioning, and big jugs of bottled water for drinking. The suite was cleaned half-way through our 6-day stay, including fresh bedding and towels. The caretaker lives in the adjacent suite and the owners live downstairs, giving the feeling that someone was always there for anything at all that we might need. They are responsive and easy to communicate with. We arrived well after midnight, much later than planned, yet we were cheerfully welcomed and shown the ropes. Tulum is close enough to the archeological ruins that we saw one a day for 6 days and still didn't get to them all. I highly recommend this lovely jungle-y retreat.

Absolutely Relaxing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is off the beaten path in the Jungle, but still close enough to town to be there in a minute. So perfect, peaceful and relaxing. The birds were wonderful to listen to. The pool was amazing. We spent a lot of time by it. It has a few waterfall spouts and the marble stone lights up at night. Makes for a romantic experience. We basically had the place to ourselves except for Lianne, the amazing lady that oversees the house while Corrine and Jack are away. Lianne was very helpful and informative for us. The apartment is comfortable and perfect for two. Everything we could possibly need was provided. There is an air conditioner in the unit, but we didn't have to use it but a few times. The balcony was awesome!!!! Shaded and the breeze that blew through made for a relaxing experience. It rained a couple of times and we just sat out, in our suits and listened to it and smelled the freshness in the air. It was the most wonderful time we have spent here. We definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking for a place and the price is just right. Thank you Corrine, Jack and Lianne.

Clean, comfy and kind

  • 5 of 5

We loved Tulum. Jack and Corrine were the most wonderful hosts. They had anticipated everything we could have needed and wanted at their lovely

place. We were greeted by two warm smiles and two cold beers! They clued us in on many local favorites and customs. The house was immaculately kept and the pool was beautiful! Can't wait to come back!

Corrine and Jack have built a beautiful refuge in the jungle! Great place to stay if you are looking for a quiet place just off the main drag in Tulum, about a 10 minute drive to gorgeous beaches. Corrine is so helpful with great suggestions and makes you feel like family. I loved staying there and love Corrine and Jack!

Owner's Response: The pleasure was all ours Mary! Thoroughly enjoyed your company and especially our girls' day at the beach. Remember to keep those special places a secret!! haha Hopefully we will have the pleasure of your company again at Kin Nah and if you decide to return to beautiful British Columbia we would love to see you there! It was great to meet you Mary. Hope the skiing wasn't too hard on you after all that sunshine you soaked up. 😊

Quiet and peaceful.

  • 5 of 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!

Angie and David

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!
