“Just what we needed”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

We spent 4 days here and yellow Bella was perfect. The 2 bikes were great to get around the place. It is easy town access, the kitchen is basic but that is all we needed. Breakfast in the mornings and we cooked there on evening.
5 min. Walk to the beach and the price was right. Stefano, the caretaker was wonderful. He was informative friendly and always in good form. Placencia was very friendly. I would use the house again if we return.

Room Tip: 2 singles and a double bed. The house was comfortable enough. A table and chairs on the front porch...

We've stayed in a few places in Placencia and in terms of value for money, this place is very good. The kitchen has fairly good equipment, a variety of utensils, frying pans, saucepans, gas stove, gas oven, microwave and sink. The fridge is not as cold as a fridge should be, seems to be more of a beer fridge. The beds were clean as was the bathroom. There's a nice veranda out front to sit on. It was roasting hot when we were here but there is a good breeze which helps reduce the indoor temperature by a couple of degrees. Being on the main road means it can be noisy when big trucks pass. When it rains on the tin roof, it is very noisy and will wake you up, but that's part of the charm of Central America!! There are a couple of bikes which are helpful for getting into Placencia to go to the beach, the bar, to buy food or just for a cycle ride.

We stayed here three nights and had a few issues when we arrived involving the WiFi etc but these were very quickly remedied and we had a great stay otherwise. 30$ a night for a four person apartment is incredibly good value especially when placencia is an expensive town and you end up spending money on other things! Bring a lighter/matches and the cooker is gas. The only addition I what would suggest would be air conditioning as it was extremely hot whilst we were there but having said that the fans were powerful so it wasn't really a problem. Would highly recommend this place in the future!

I enjoyed my get away to Yellow Bella. I didn't stay long here but it's a great value for the place. Close to the beach and easy to get to the village with bicycles included. It's very clean and very nicely furnished. It has two bedrooms so I had more room than I needed. A lovely place to stay while visiting the local sites or just relax on the beach.

Spent 10 days at Yellow Bella. The rental was great--clean and had everything we needed. Fun sitting on deck in the shade and people-watching on the main road. Traffic noise was loud as it is located on the main road. But, not late at night so sleeping was fine. Location is good for getting to the beach and biking to restaurants on the provided bikes. Stefano was great--making sure we had everything we needed, checking to see if we were having good trip, etc.
Did not do any cooking so can't say anything about the set up. Had a great time getting to know some of the neighbors on the beach, business owners and other locals.

Yellow Bella House is a cute little house. We had a great stay there. Clean and comfortable with everything you need for a nice quiet week on the peninsula. Stefan is great! Can be there in 10 minutes if you need something, but then you don't see him until you call him again!! The bicycles were great and made exploring the area fun. The portable fans worked great and with the ocean breeze, AC really wasn't necessary anyway. The internet connection was reliable and fast. Couldn't have asked for more!! Great value for short or long term renting. The only thing missing for long term rentals would be a washing machine. Other than that, it was great! Hoping to go again next year!! Thanks again for a wonderful stay!!!

If you are looking for a nice, comfortable place to spend some time in lovely Placencia, Yello Bella House may be the place for you. It is for the budget traveler so the amenities are few. Fans instead of AC, hot showers but no hot water in the kitchen or bathroom sinks. It has two bikes which make it great for going into town. It has internet and cable TV, but not much in the way of comfortable seating. All the necessary kitchen utensils are provided along with a microwave and small fridge. Stefano the property manager is awesome! YBH is right on the main road so you will wake up every morning to trucks and road noise, but as for sleeping it is a very quiet location.

Room Tip: The prevailing breeze is from the east so try to get the eastern facing apartment. You will enjoy t...
