The Garzon Jaramillo family is wondefully accommodating and the property is beautiful. Would definitely stay at Yellowhouse again the next time I pass through Mindo and reccommend it to anyone. It is a haven of birds and diversity and the trails offer easy day hikes. Breakfast is also delicious. Thank you! La familia Garzon Jaramillo es muy agradable y hospedoso...

Hacienda San Vincente (aka Yellow House) is a great choice in Mindo. It is far enough out to be away from the noise and feel like you are in the country, but still an easy (5-8 min) walk to town. The track is lit at night so we didn't need a torch (although one is good for night time wildlife...

When the tree rising up to the second floor of your guest house is a poinsettia, you know you're not in Kansas (or even Texas) anymore. Yellow House Lodge & Trails (aka Hacienda San Vicente) might well be the best lodging choice in Mindo, especially for birders and nature enthusiasts (for whom the extensive trail system is a prime attraction)....

We stayed 3 nights at this very pleasant B&B whch is set in a garden full of birds. We had a large room (#4 in the Yellow House ) . It was simply furnished but had lovely wood floors and the balcony overlooked the garden. As our purpose in Mindo was birdwatching we had to forego the great breakfast for...

Our stay here was short but delightful. We had a spacious upstairs room with roomy ensuite bathroom in a building which was situated at the back of the property. It was utterly magical to wake up to the beautiful sounds of various birdsong in the morning! And it was equally delightful to watch the antics of hummingbirds from our balcony...

We (Danish biology family with three teenagers July 2015) are very happy that we decided to have a couple of nights at HSV. The hostel’s comfort and breakfast was far above standards of our experiences of Ecuador. The breakfast was served on the veranda and we watched literally hundreds of hummingbirds feeding and also saw both Aracari and Motmot from...

Great place to stay in Mindo, only 5min walk to the city's center. The sisters are lovely and serve a lovely breakfast with view on the feeding platforms for the hummingbirds. Great views on the city and the surroundings. They have some nice walkingtrails on the property. It's a quiet place, except for the barking of the dogs, who are...

We stayed 2 weeks in a cabin at the yellow house. We had a very comfortable, clean room at the second floor with windows on three sides and an attached spacious bathroom. Off the room was a balcony with 2 chairs and 2 hammocks overlooking the garden. Downstairs was a spacious, well equipped kitchen. The grounds are beautiful with lots...

2 friends and I spent 10 days staying in the River cabin at the Yellow House. It was a wonderful period enjoying the verdant gardens with ponds, plentiful birds and forest trails. The Garzon family sisters were extremely welcoming and helpful. We don't look for luxury but want cleanliness, relative peace and quiet, a working shower and comfortable bed, and...

What Yellowhouse (or Hacienda San Vicente) may lack in terms of luxury (although it is certainly comfortable enough!) is more than made up for in terms of the owners welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful nature. Its buildings are surrounded by lush vegetation which is positively teeming with birdlife. The tracks which lead from the property up into the hills provide...
