so peaceful and relaxing
The house had everything you need and more. Lizette and Gino are amazing and a excellent example of the kindness of the mexican people. They made us feel like family and are so genuine. We enjoyed daily walks on the beach picking up interesting shells. We spend a lot of time just is swinging in the hammock, beside the pool watching the pelicans dive for food 20 meters away. Groceries were not a problem in Chelem and Progresso. We used the BBQ and appreciated the sink outside and the clothes line. All seemingly small things but made it feel like home.
We did not need the air conditioner. Every afternoon a breeze came up and we fell asleep to the sound of waves and palm trees in the wind. A wonderful month long holiday.
Les proprios sont tout simplement fantastique!
Le 1er jour de notre arrivée, un des nôtres a glissé et s'est fracturée la cheville en 3 endroits. Hôpital, RX, operation, coucher à l'hôpital etc.. et aucun de nous ne parle l'espagnol. Lizette et Gino ont cancellé entièrement toute leur agenda respectif et nous ont pris en charge. Ils ont agi en tant que traducteur, nous ont trouvé les médecins compétents, nous ont accompagné tout le long de cette malchance.
Nous sommes vraiment ébahis par leur dévouement. Nous avons continué notre séjour dans la chaleur et dans l'eau magnifique. Merci à Lizette Pinto et à son conjoint Gino. Et Merci à tous les Yucatans, leur hospitalité et leur chaleur humaine me font comprendre pourquoi eux-même sont d'abord des Yucateco et des Mexicains ensuite! :-)
My dear friends, thank you to your beautiful words
When the guests arriving to our homes they become a family so you are our family too ! Was a pleasure to met you , thanks to chosed our home Tintinki and was a pleasure to helped you.
God put excellent Doctors and nurses in our way
We hope your sister in law will improve quickly and maybe soon will return to enjoy the ocean and sand.
Big hugs for all of you
Lizette, Gino and family
Amazing two month holiday in La Tintiki
What a wonderful two months we experienced at La TIntiki. Gino and Lizette the owners have become our close friends and they are wonderful hosts. Anything and I mean anything that needed attention was dealt with professionally and immediately. The beach house is so comfortable and warm and the back terrace with the pool overlooking the ocean was our favorite spot during the holiday. Chelem and Chuburna only a few short minutes by car offer so many great and authentic Mexican and ex Pat food experiences. Our favourite was Taco Maya where the blacken fish taco's, burritos, and Taco salad were outstanding. This home was truly our home away from home. We have been renting from VRBO for over ten years and have never come across owners like Gino and Lizette. We would highly recommend La TIntiki because of the home, the owners and authentic Mexican experience that awaits you. Oh yes and for good measure Merida is amazing and you can visit Mayan ruins in 40 minutes in any direction.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review!
You are very welcome, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay! It was a pleasure to meet both of you and can't wait to see you again
Lizette and Gino
A week was not nearly long enough!!
My family and I just got back from a week in the Yucatan staying a week at Tintinki.
First let me say that Lizette answered every email immediately and with suggestions and links, she was wonderful. So the ease of booking was great as were her directions to the house.
So from the moment we stepped in OMG the wonderful breeze that hit us and then the view! It took a minute to take it all in. The wonderful pictures were accurate however cannot begin to describe what you will feel. The house was perfect and had everything we could want and more. It was very clean comfortable and beautiful. We had a rental car so we could grocery shop and explore. Woke up each morning to the sound of waves had coffee out on deck and then went for a walk and a swim. My perfect vacation. The 3 of us totally relaxed and never needed the AC. The area is quiet and perfect for a relaxing short or long stay. wish ours was longer!! We went to the farmers market at Natural Thangs and met many expats. Our favorite restaurants were: Playa down in Chelem on beach and Maison Maya in Chuburna on left side of main road.
If you are looking to unwind this is the place!! Lizette is a wonderful hostess, we are sorry we did not get to meet Gino. We would love to return.
