We stayed in the Star Baka room for one night and the Stellar Attic for one night. Each had its charm. The house overall was very comfortable. Kevin was a great host. He tried to be as helpful as he could (with his decent English). The one "problem" is that it cost about 200 TWD each way for a taxi... More

The design of the house is what attracts most people, glass house where you can see trees and skys. However, there are only few rooms with this view and you have to be lucky enough to book this room. And also, it is still kinda close to other houses which short of unexpected (thought its gonna be in the forest... More

I came to know about this minsu through a friend's recommendation, stayed 2 nights there, 1 night at 星巴卡 and 1 night at 普普风. The minsu owner and his new assistant came to pick us up from the train station. There was a train delay but they patiently waited. They received us with really warm smiles and are really friendly.... More

I wanted to try out a minsu stay in Taiwan and got to know about Echo villa through a blogger who posted her stay there. Its a very popular minsu which requires at least 2 months advanced booking if you want to stay in the glass rooms. I was lucky to have booked the small room for a night a... More

Great villa and we feel like home away from home. As we came with our own transport, it is pretty easy to get here. We have two nights here and tonight is our first in the victorian style room located at the highest floor. There is a total of five villas here so make sure you reserve your villas well... More

Had stayed for 4 nights with my family of 4. Peaceful place with fresh air. However I don't feel at home like what the feedback I'd read here before I'd booked. Guess all the positive feedbacks here had given me high expectations. I feel like am just staying in another hotel. The booking system is kinda crappy. It hang on... More

My fiance and I spent two nights at Echo Villa in the Victoria room and Stellar Attic room. The rooms are filled up very quickly hence it is advisable to book as soon as the reservation window is open. The 招牌人物 of Echo Villa is known as 阿呈. Prior to our arrival, he has always been prompt and patient in... More

I booked a one-night stay at the Star-gazing Pavilion more than 2 months in advance, practically as soon as the room was available for reservation. Generally, rooms are open for online booking at least 2 months in advance, and always at the beginning of each calendar month. They have very few rooms, so it's all completely taken up faster than...

We contacted the owner of the B&B (Ah Cheng/阿呈) by phone to make our reservation about 2 months in advance of our stay. I would highly recommend everyone to book as early as possible as the rooms are filled quite quickly. You can book the rooms via their website or give Ah Cheng a call. We originally booked for 2...

I had stayed with Echo Villa from 23rd December to 25th December 2013 and proved to be very worthwhile! The host, Ah cheng provided transport pickup from the train station and drop us back on the last day of stay to our convenience!
