If you want to stay at a working hacienda, this is a good opportunity. For the second year in a row we rented the River Cabin for a month-long stay. The spacious house has two bedrooms upstairs and two below. There are bathrooms on each level and a large kitchen, and balconies. The kitchen is very well supplied with a... More

We stayed here in late June 2014 and loved the location - 10 minute walk to Mindo. Mindo is a 2 1/2 hour bus ride from Quito - cost about $2.50. The ladies who run the place are kind and helpful. Have lots of info on flora and fauna. They speak mainly Spanish. Breakfast was delicious - fresh fruit, fruit... More

A great place to stay in a lovely town (it is 10 mins walk from the town centre). We saw stunning birds and mammals on the grounds, and the walks through the cloud forests were great. The women who run the Yellow House are lovely, so helpful and friendly. They give free maps of the area and have loads of... More

My husband and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon. We loved the town and Hacienda San Vicente. We had a great breakfast daily with fresh fruit, fresh squeezed fruit juice, and a great view of birds. The trails were great, but did take a while to hike up to. The property was covered in guava trees which was... More

My husband and I stayed at the yellow house (upstairs) in February of this year. The accommodations are comfortable and clean, but basic. If you want luxury this is not the place for you. This "house" is a assembly of various units built on a farm. As the previous reviewer have stated it is a beautiful short walk into town... More

Hacienda San Vicente (Yellow House) is an ideal place to stay in Mindo, especially if you are a keen bird-watcher. It is located on the outskirts of Mindo, just 5-10 minute walk from the restaurants and shops in the centre of the village. And yet, it is surrounded by luxuriant cloud forest for which Mindo is justly famous. The birdlife... More

As Maria is also my name, we had a laugh at all the women involved with the Yellow House named 'Maria'. They were all very kind. As mentioned, Christina who answers emails does not live on site. Between the sisters, they have some english and things get across. My limited spanish helped. It was hard not to let the Mindo... More

Yellow House is good value and is especially nice for birders. The gardens attract a wide assortment of birds, the hummingbird feeders off the main deck draw in many species, and you also have the opportunity to trade stories with other birders, which can be invaluable for making plans within Ecuador. The location is away from the town square and... More

The real "yellow house" might be a nice place (although it's about 300 meters away from the street and during the night just a dark trail leads towards it) but we stayed at the street in a kind of bungalow. The place had an awful smell, the bathroom was not really clean and the room was very old-fashioned. If you... More

Yellow House (Hacienda San Vicente) is a fantastic getaway in Ecuador. Famous for its hummingbirds- I also got shots of numerous other birds and a spectacled bear high up on the bird trails. I slept beautifully to the sound of running water and frogs. Then a fantastic breakfast awaits. The family was so kind - letting me check in on... More
