My husband and I stayed here for two nights recently on an independent birding trip to Ecuador. The owner, Maria, could not have been more helpful or kinder. From bringing us umbrellas when it started to rain, to ordering us taxis and recommending restaurants. We stayed upstairs in one of the cabins. We were the only guests at the time.... More

I visited Mindo mainly for the birdwatching in the area, and to visit a different ecosystem. I absolutely loved Yellow House. The sisters who you deal with, and their mother, are so nice and helpful. I couldn't imagine a better place to stay in Mindo because of this alone. When you factor in the lovely porch with the hummingbird feeders... More

This is a great place to do some nature hiking and bird watching. This place is comfortable and clean and the owners are very nice. Don't get this confused with a four star hotel, what makes this nice is the nature, and the friendly staff. We stayed in the yellow house building which was nice, but smells musty. That's what...

We stayed in this hotel for a couple of days during our visit to the region of Mindo. There is a large nature reserve on the domain of this hotel, so you can easily spend a day just walking here. The cabins are large and clean and the owners are really nice. They can even make you a packed lunch... More

Tucked away from the center of Mindo, a pleasant 10 mins walk to a beautiful and private paradise. Twin sisters Maria-I, Maria Helena, their mom & their 3 beautiful German Shepards, especially Rex & Dante made our 3 nights stay very enjoyable. Beautiful property with a lot of trails & protected land. Saw many birds especially close to the house.... More

The yellow house is really an amazing place. The habitat they have preserved is filled with Toucans, Agoutis, frogs, and wonderful birds. I saw two cock of the rock birds back on the forest trails. There are also monkeys and bears but I didn't run into them the day I spent on the trails. Don't rush through the cattle pastures... More

Hacienda San Vicente, more commonly known as the Yellow House, is a great place to stay. Our room (in the main house) was spacious with a clean and large bathroom (warm water!) in a nice wooden building. There was WIFI in our room.The owners are really nice ladies, who are very helpful in finding your best affordable options to visit... More

I stayed in the main Yellow House at San Vincente. The location, private and quiet yet a 5 minute walk to the main plaza in town, was very convenient . The grounds are wet and verdant and attract many species of Hummingbirds and a resident emerald Roufous Mot Mot that feeds on the bananas left out for him.He was spectacular... More

Because: good, hot shower, wifi, trails in the forest, which normally cost 6 $, but are free if you stay at their place. Nice gardens, a swimming hole, very good place to relax, close to the centre of mindo, and they have 200 hectares land!
