Where to stay Vilcabamba Survival Guide

Hotels, guest houses and rentals. Please select a category below.

Note: this category includes facilities for longer term stays such as apartments or houses for rent

The Big Yellow House (Casa Amarilla)

The Big Yellow House, owned by Jenice and Bruce, is neither a hostel nor a hotel.  We provide rental units for folks interested in that arrangement. It can provide cost savings to those who are staying for extended stays and a private place that is “yours” during your stay in Vilcabamba.

The property is located 4 and ½ blocks from the town plaza. It’s a short walk to anything you might need.  It’s a $1 taxi ride if you would rather ride than walk.

There are two 3 bedroom apartments on the second floor. They are nice Ecuadorian style, meaning there’s tile everywhere! There’s also nice color on the walls.  Owned by Americans, we have added on-demand hot water shower and included all the basics to just move in. The apartments are furnished with beds, couches, stove, fridge, dishes, and linens. There is a wash machine on the property and clotheslines on the roof. Views from the apartments are of the beautiful mountains surrounding Vilcabamba. 

Staying for a month or longer? A cell phone’s included to get you started connecting with new friends.

Located separately in the back, the property also has 2 rooms with a shared bath, all newly renovated. New furniture, paint, cabinets and roof! All linens are included.

Jenice also writes a wonderful blog about their experiences and life here in Vilcabamba.
