“We love adventures. This was an adventure into relaxation and taking it easy. Muchas gracias for creating a nook for people to be low key and relaxed. I often think of these places as “library” and the people that visit: the “books”.

I’m sure you have read and heard many stories while here, and I hope that we made a bookmark into your live, because you and your paradise certainly did that for us.”

Christine´s place was a perfect landing "platform" to arrive in Mexico. Natural, simple and a melange of Mexican with global. Thanks for creating and maintaining this space!



Thank you so much for a wonderful experience here in Mexico. We could not have asked for a more beautiful place to stay than this! Casitas Kinsol is easily my favorite house in ALL of Mexico - with your beautiful courtyard, adorable pets and helpful tips. I definitely plan on returning to Puerto Morelos. Again, thank you so much for being wonderful hosts.

"I loved Casitas Kinsol .Christine and Alain are really really nice people and I was feeling at home there. They are so friendly and helpful...

...Regardless my very last moment booking, I was accepted and even picked up from airport...

... I loved the way they keep this little paradise in creative and unique way . Christine is great cook, I love the breakfast she makes...

...I wish to this great couple all the successes for their business..."

Ann-Lis Montenegro

"It was great. Christine and Alan were the best hosts taking care of us from the moment we arrived (at one o'clock at night) until Alan left us at the airport the last day. Christine is a fantastic cook, new Mexican style breakfast every morning. Safe, clean and well kept rooms (by the owner herself)...

... Perfect for those who want to stay in a "real", Mexican village instead of the megahotels in Cancun. The beach is fantastic!"

The 'colonia' is definitively the place to be. The food on that side of the highway is amazing....

.... You guys were great with your generosity and recommendations. We hope to be back."



"Thank you so much for your hospitality,

... Your place is so creative, original and natural. i loved the logs ceiling, the lushness, the flowers, the wood carving in ancient Mexican style.

My breakfasts were superb, fresh pressed grapefruits juices were such a treat for a Canadian! ... most of all was the New Year spent with your warm companionship, including sweet Tati (the dog).

... Hope to see you again soon if possible."

Alain Paris, France

"I loved being in a part of Mexico that still has some of the original culture present. The location of Casitas Kinsol in the heart of Puerto Morelos is the best. I made so many contacts with the locals.

That was the best way to improve 'mi Espanol'. ..

... 1000 mercis pour ton accueil."

“Thank you! We love the simple, but comfortable artistic charm of Kinsol ! What a perfect “landing pad” for our first trip to the Yucatan…. ...The settings are so peaceful and alive at the same time.

It was nice to feel safe with our own keys and our own cozy room. We slept well, and enjoyed our days at the Puerto Morelos beach.

The fabulous breakfast was such a delicious treat! Amazing eggs, fresh fruits salad and hot coffee.

Muchas Gracias!!!! Thank you for sharing your space with us, and for charging reasonable rates that normal people can afford. We loved Kinsol. “
