We stayed here for 4 nights and it was one of the most relaxing places i have stayed. The yellow house its self is old on the outside but beautiful wooden floors on the inside. The lodging was very comfortable and anything you needed, the sisters were there to help. It is a short walk from town along a dirt... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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.
