About Peter Weininger

I am a Canadian who enjoys 365 days of sunshine !

Why Peter Weininger chose Celestun

The property is right on the beach in the biosphere Celestun.

The beach is usual quiet and safe for children. Thousands of shells waiting to be collected.We are one km outside the sometimes noisy village. For rent are only 3 rooms and one casita/cottage which means the place is never overcrowd with guest.

What makes this cottage unique

I bought this place to get away from it all.

That's what i enjoy now every day . When i open the curtain in the morning and i see the blue sky and ocean i feel very fortunate.

Nothing much can change here because the biosphere Celestun is very protected from the Mexican government.

Couldn't have been better!!

  • 5 of 5

Peter and Sandra were gracious,friendly,helpful hosts.We decided to get away from the heat in Merida for a few days and relax at a beach.

Castillo kin nah turned out to be perfect..

The facilities and location were ideal.Lovely pool and pool area,direct access to the beach and an easy walk to the beach restaurants of Celestun.

Room with balcony on second floor allowed for wonderful breezes from the gulf..

Peter provided tips for walks in the area to see more flamingos and we did take the flamingo tour which was one of the hits of our 6 week trip.

Highly recommend this location for R&R.

Sure beatthe weather back home in Canada!!

Charming Accommodations for our Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful stay! The Casita was perfect for our family providing comfortable space to sleep, cook, swim, as well as walk on the beach or explore Celestun. We arrived to Celestun by bus and used the motorcycle taxis to get around. It was such a perfect adventure mixed with relaxation and natural beauty.

Lovely restful vacation on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This vacation unit was perfect for our goal of a restful getaway. Hosts were on site and very nice and helpful. The ocean and beach in this area are stunning with beautiful sunsets. My husband loved birding right near house on tip from owner. The beach was just outside property gate and we walked the beach each day to get into town. Town being small rather sleepy village with restaurants and daily market around a charming centro plaza. Not a night time place as seafood houses close at 6. Good value for price.

Beautiful, relaxing spot in the beach

  • 5 of 5

Right on the beach, private pool, lots of comfortable deck furniture, and congenial hosts. We stayed in the casita, which was very well appointed and comfortable so we could cook some of our own meals and eat them on the deck. Take a morning trip in a poled canoe through the mangroves restoration - it is well worth it! So peaceful, full of birds, and our guide was very sincere and knowledgeable.

Wonderful hosts, thoughtful and helpful. Facility and beach were gorgeous.

  • 5 of 5

We found the hosts to be very thoughtful and attentive to our needs to be sure we were comfortable and happy there. We felt very comfortable in our rooms, at the lounge area around the pool, and on the beach. The room was beautiful - clean and lovely - just what you'd imagine for a vacation on the beach. We could see the ocean from our room. It is a comfortable walk to town, which you can do along the road or along the beach. Our hosts gave us suggestions for restaurants in town which we tried and found delicious. Our hosts were also kind enough to drive us to the bus station on our last day. We stayed in Cancun one might, in Merrida three nights but this was the prettiest, most relaxing part of our trip! We would definitely recommend this vacation home.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Nancy and Charlie, for the lovely review you gave for us and our place. You remember all the nice comments in our guest book, but not to many guest take the time to write on a site like this. I guess WE had a good time here at Castillito Kin Nah and at Peter's restaurant where we went with all the guest at that time. All the best for you two and see you again, Sandra and Peter

The Celestun Biosphere Reserve ( Ria) attracts over 300 bird species.

In the winter time you will also see many migrating birds. The Ria is the home of the pink Flamingo.Motor boats can bring you to the flocks.(No reservation necessary) Push boat tours thru the Mangroves are also available. The endless beach is normally calm and safe for children. Collect shells is a must.

The main income of the local people is from fishing , salt extraction at the salt flats and tourism.

For " Birders" are also special tours available with the local biologist.

(need reservation)

The area is very safe day and night. (Village life)
