“Authentic Mexican Experience”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2014

Casa Tintanativa is in a typical neighbourhood in San Cristobal de Las Casas. The adobe wall construction, the log beams, the fireplace are the real thing. As are your neighbours roosters. The high walls of the garden at the rear of the house keep them out of sight. The owner has landscaped native flowering shrubs and potted orchids in the two old peach trees. A Jasmine climbs a high wall. It is a relaxing place to sit and contemplate. As there is no TV or land-line phone (though a good wireless internet connection), there will be lots of time for that. Bring your own books, and know the hot water system is frail: none at the kitchen sink. Recommended.

“Que Bonito”

We recently visited San Cristobal de las Casas and stayed at Casa Tintanativa. The owner/hostess, Margarita, was very gracious and friendly. She made us feel very welcome and even took us on a short walking tour to point out places of interest. The home was beautiful and very comfortable and we would recommend this home to anyone. The home is in a very safe and quiet neighborhood and within walking distance to local shops, restaurants, markets and points of interest. We went all over San Cristobal and felt very safe everywhere, even later in the evening. The kitchen was equipped with stove, toaster oven, coffee pot and electric water pot for hot tea. The fireplace was inviting and we used it at least once a day. The courtyard was beautiful and the weather was perfect - a little cool/chilly in the evening and early morning, but we loved it. We would highly recommend Casa Tintanativa and thank Margarita for making us feel so welcome and comfortable. Thank you. Thank you.

My wife and I stayed at artist House the last week of January, 2014. The home is just outside, but walking distance to, the entertainment district and many sites of interest. The house is part way up a hill; there is a nice view of the city from the the second floor deck. The garden was nice, even though the trees and most of the flowers were not in season. Decor lived up to our expectations for an artist House. Margarita's suggestions for places to eat and area attractions helped us make the most of our stay in San Cristobal. We had a personal situation occur the last day of our visit and we are very grateful that Margarita went far out of her way to help us resolve it. We highly recommend San Cristobal and artist House.

“Fabulosa Experiencia EN Casa Tintativa.”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2014

Hola a cada una de las personas que leen este review. Quiero comentarles que mi estancia en casa Tintativa superó por muchos mis expectativas. Si bien, tenía una idea de a dónde iba por las fotografías del lugar. Al llegar simplemente quedé impactado. La sensación de paz y tranquilidad es algo que no puede describirse. El hogar es acogedor, en las primeras horas llegas a sentir que estás como en casa. Cada rincón tiene una esencia y tal pareciera que estuvieras haciendo un recorrido por un pequeño museo. El área sen es una experiencia que debes de vivir. Ubicada en el segundo piso de la casa. Para los amantes de desconectarse por completo es la mejor opción que puedes vivir en San Cristobal de las Casas. La casa es un reflejo de su propietaria, la artista Mar, quien en todo momento se muetra accesible y con los mejores tips para ayudar a que la estancia sea completa. Una gran chimenea en medio de la casa hace tu velada realmente completa, así mismo el patio es tan acogedor que puedes quedarte horas disfrutando y admirando el paisaje. Cada rincón del hogar tiene vida. La ubicación es segura y excelente. A unos minutos de la zona centrica, lo que te permite la dualidad de disfrutar de un espacio tranquilo, pero también cerca de atracciones turísticas importantes. Sin temor a equivocarme puedo decir que llegas al mejor lugar de San Cristobal de las Casas y con una host inigualable.

“A little paradise in the middle of a wonderful city - San Cristo”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2013

Through a friend, at that time Casa Tintanativa was still a well kept secret, we had the chance to live for a week in this marvellous house being spoilt by the so tasteful hospitatlity of its owner. The house is in most gracious and aesthetic harmony combined with all the commodities we enjoy every day. The owner, being a most facinating artist took into account to use the old, indiginous way to build a house which means she used the 1000 of years old technic to use adobe, again combined with more temporary materials. The guestroom is on the groundfloor with a window door which opens to a most charming little garden. The house is situated in the historic part of San Cristobal and it is a 10 minute walk to the very centre. You will not need a car to move around the city. Of course the immediate surroundings of San Cristobal counts for many treasures to be discovered. I can highly recommend a short or even a longer stay in this house - you might not want to leave as it is very capturing with its authentic charm which reflects the most delicate taste of the owner. This is one not to be missed!! I wish to all future guests a wondrful stay in San Cristobal de las Casas.

Response from the owner Eva, It's been great to have you at Casa Tintanativa, and a pleasure to be your host. I'm very happy to know that you really liked the house and your staying here. Will be very pleased to be your host when you and your'e family visit again San Cristobal de las Casas. Thank you very much for your review, your appreciation and the description details about!. Send best wishes and regards Margarita
