Clean, quiet, perfect location for cycling the surrounding vineyards and excellent value for the price! Owners are incredibly helpful and friendly and offered a warm stay and organized a day tour for us. Also, very prompt email replies while booking as well as links for directions in Spanish for taxi drivers! So glad we stayed here at Tikaykilla instead of in Mendoza city. Thank you again!

We felt like home.
Francisco the owner of this very cozy place pull his best effort in this sense.
From tips on good places to go (and good doesn´t mean famous) and support to getting there we find allways his helping hand.

The only thing that is important to notice is that the Lodge is not very near of any place to eat at night (at least a 10 minutes walk) so it´s better if you be prepared in this sense if you don´t like to walk you´ll be getting a lot of taxis.

But Francisco have in hand very good delivery food.

What I can say to resume our experience is that in our next trip to Mendoza we don´t now the Winneries we are going to visit, but the Lodge is TikayKilla for sure !

Room Tip: First on the left is the best.

We really enjoyed our stay at TikayKilla. The rooms were spotless, bed comfortable, shower hot, satelitte tv on an LCD and Internet worked well.

The owner is so kind and extremely helpful. He made it very easy to explore the area and around. We did not have a car so he arranged all transport for us which was so awesome.

The location is very close to many vineyards though set back from the main road a bit. Nice for peace and quiet but a bit far if you rely solely on public transport (we took a private car that the lodge arranged). They also had bikes to rent on site which was a huge perk! Overall, it's very nice to escape Mendoza and spend time in the countryside.

Breakfast was good with plenty to eat - cereal, toast, omelette, fruit, coffee/tea.

There were also a couple friendly dogs on the premises that we loved playing with.

Our only disappointment was the AC. The AC unit was closer to a swamp cooler than western AC. It blew cool air but not cold which was tough on 1 very hot night. It did cool down a bit outside at night so opening windows was an option if you didn't mind the mosquitos (we minded). Fortunately there was only 1 very hot night over our 3 night stay there and we were comfortable the rest of the time. This also wouldn't be an issue outside summer months.

Overall a very good stay. We would go back!

After doing my research on Tripadvisor, my wife and I decided to spend 3 nights at Tikaykilla Lodge and Wines in mid-March, 2014 for the Mendoza portion of our Argentinian vacation. We found the Lodge to be charming, tastefully appointed, and an excellent value for money. The property is large, with an ample sized lawn, and plenty of trees, plants and flowers to enjoy. There are two friendly and playful pet dogs that roam the property and happily interact with the guests. The rooms, although fairly basic, are comfortable, clean, rustic, and offer everything that you would need to enjoy a relaxing stay at a lodge in wine country. The common areas of the Lodge share the same tasteful and rustic design, which only adds to the ambiance and character of the place. We loved the relaxing feeling of sitting outside at a table on the covered terrace area, enjoying one of the nice (and very affordable!!) bottles of wine available for purchase from the wine fridge in the reception area, casually chatting with other guests and soaking up the pleasant atmosphere of the garden and lawn areas. There are only 4 guest rooms, so overcrowding would never be an issue, and this allows the host to provide exceptional personal service, as I will discuss below. The included breakfasts are delicious (and filling), as are the coffee and teas provided to guests.

As first time visitors to the Mendoza area, we had several questions for Francisco upon booking our stay, and he took the time to promptly respond to all emails and provide detailed, helpful answers to all of our, admittedly many, questions. Upon our arrival, Francisco was waiting to greet us, and offered us a very welcome drink after a long journey. Despite having become a father a mere 10 days prior to our arrival, and also hosting his visiting parents visiting while we were there, Francisco was both a gracious and attentive host throughout the duration of our stay. He is fluent in both Spanish and English, which was very helpful given our limited Spanish ability. He proved to be a fountain of valuable information and happily recommended restaurants, bars, wineries, and excursions at our request. In addition, Francisco took care of so many of our arrangements, including: arranging bike rentals for us in advance so that the bikes were waiting when we arrived, booking our all day Andes excursion, arranging taxis into downtown Mendoza on 2 of the nights (which cost approximately US $10.00 one way), driving us to dinner at a local restaurant on the third night and then graciously offering to return and pick us up afterward (which we declined, as we wanted to walk off the delicious meal), and arranging our early morning transportation to the airport on the day of our departure. Simply put, the hospitality and the level of service that we received here were nothing short of impeccable, and, if you read through the various other reviews, you will see that this experience is not unique to us, but is a constant at Tikaykilla. If you happen to read this- thanks again, Francisco, for your hospitality and for making our stay a smooth and a very enjoyable experience!

We would definitely return to Tikaykilla the next time that we are back in the Mendoza region . . . in fact, I can't imagine staying anywhere else! We also cannot recommend it enough to anyone who is looking for a comfortable, affordable stay in a charming and relaxing atmosphere in wine country.

My friend and I stayed here for three nights at the end of December, so it has been a little while but I wanted to come on and write a review because it is such a fantastic place and really stands out amongst all the places we stayed during our 5 week trip of S.A. Francisco and his wife were very friendly and were willing to help us with anything they could, making us feel right at home. We arrived late in the day on our first night and they offered to cook us dinner as we were feeling too tired to go out, they cooked us a steak and simple salad which was very nice. The area that the lodge is located is the perfect place to stay if you are wanting to be close to the wineries as they are all within easy bike riding distance- and there are conveniently bikes to lease at the lodge. The lodge itself has a really relaxed atmosphere, I think there are only four rooms so it is very peaceful and the lodge is surrounded by a large beautiful garden. The rooms are comfortable and very nicely presented. The breakfast is also great with everything you could want and Francisco and his wife were happy to cook eggs for us whenever we sat down to breakfast too. As a bonus there are also two very cute and friendly dogs on the premises who are always happy to receive a pat. You really cannot look past this place!

It’s been a few months since my girlfriend and I stayed at Tikay Killa lodge, but reminiscing over our South American visit prompted me to finally write this review. Simply put, it is easily the best place to stay in Maipu and was our favourite place of lodging for our entire two-month South American holiday.
Francisco, the owner and manager is extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and makes every guest feel special with his warm hospitality. He speaks several languages and his English is top notch. The rooms are lovely, kept impeccably clean and were warm and cosy during our winter stay. The lodge is also extremely quiet and peaceful, serving as the perfect break amongst the craziness of the rest of our adventure. The breakfast service is great and we felt well looked after each and every morning. Finally, Soki, a lovely golden retriever serves as a friendly companion and mascot for the place.
Although itself not a winery, Tikay Killa provides easy access to all of Maipu’s nearby estates and Francisco was immensely helpful in organising absolutely anything we needed for our visits. In addition to wineries, all of our activities were organised with efficiency and in a wonderfully friendly manner. I couldn’t speak more highly of the service.
We felt incredibly comfortable and well looked after during our stay and would be guaranteed to stay here again next time we visit Argentina. Seriously, it’s that good.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great!
