Lizette and Gino are awesome hosts!
We stayed 10 weeks at La Tintinki hosted by owners Lizette and Gino. Not enough can be said about their attentiveness to our needs. No request was too big or small - all were met with the desire to fulfill and make our stay the best that it could be. And let me tell you about our pool ON the beach! A swim in the ocean or the pool….take your pick…either is such a nice way to cool down (even if this is winter time in the Yucatan…35C is still 35C, especially compared to what we came home to!). The house is designed to remain cool inside while you can still absorb as much sunshine as you want just 5 feet outside the patio doors. We did not turn on the AC even once during our stay. The fans kept us always comfortable in La Tinktinki! This 5 star rating is for Lizette and Gino who are second to none!

Sweet House with a few problem
The beach in this area is eroding which brings the ocean closer to the houses. This might be why the well for this house has been compromised and is now salt. All the taps in the house and the pool are salt water. Difficult to rinse salt off your body and bathing suits etc. Apparently this has just happened so hopefully it gets fixed soon. Perhaps an inquiry prior to booking would be appropriate. We “borrowed” fresh water from another house on the property to rinse off after the salt water shower. Also very hard on dishes cutlery and pipes
Also the kitchen is only 1/2 renovated and bathrooms need some help. But they are doable. The pros are: Great architecture, good beds , clean sheets, Nice towels. Good art nicely arranged. Great location. Secure premise.Dishes and pots and pans are ok. Could use another pot. Owners are responsive and very nice. Lots of furniture outdoors and inside. Appliances all work and are in decent shape. Any house this close to the ocean is very difficult to keep up as the salt rusts everything so appliances in good shape means they have been replaced recently.
All in all a nice place The salt water well needs remediation but I’m sure the owners are on this.
Good morning my dear Hazel, thank you very much to your review and Yes the problem with a salt water was resolve some days a go, I want to invite you to return again and enjoy our beach home will be a pleasure to see you again. Warm regards
Gino and Lizette
Stylish beach cottage
This is a beautiful and very comfortable beach cottage and our stay was very relaxing and enjoyable. Although we didn't have the best weather there was still lots to do with exploring the local natural beauty of the area, mangroves with flamingoes, salt flats, archaeological sites, and centotes. A day trip to the yellow town of Izamal was well worth it. Lizette and Gino were excellent hosts greeting us with cold beer and a bowl of local fruit and were very responsive when issues with the house came up. The beach is great for shell collecting as well as meeting local cottagers. I would love to return some day.
Thanky very much to choosed our home.
We are very happy to met you but more because you enjoyed all around the beach home. We hope to see you again.
Lizette and Gino
