We love that the beach was just next to the Minsu through a rabbit's hole in the shrubs. The minsu was undergoing renovations then and the owner was away travelling. Maybe service-wise we were not given the opportunity for the full works. The minsu has a little farm area where they had goats and some chickens. Quite entertaining for small... More

The Good : 1) Andy is very kind, friendly and helpful. Our kids liked him. 2) Free transfer to Train Station on your arrival and departure. 3) Free transfer to night market during evening time only. (During the day, you have to call for a taxi if you want to go to town). 4) Kids can play fireworks under Andy’s... More

Stayed here in December 2012 for a night and what made it memorable was the fact that we could buy fireworks and sky lantern and set it off in the front yard with the owner's help! The fireworks and sky lantern is bought at own expense (we asked our taxi driver to do a mini stopover on the way to... More

Spent two nights here in January and thoroughly enjoyed this minsu experience. The owner, Mr. Chen picked us up at the Hualien train station, and the next morning he offered tons of sound advice about what to do around town. We ended up renting a car to visit the magnificent Cingshuei Cliffs and Taroko Gorge. The minsu house is a... More

We just stayed a night but could feel the warmth and happiness of the owners of the Minsu. The couple was very friendly and helpful. The Minsu was rather old but was clean and interesting with a little farm full of chicken, ducks, turkeys and there was also a pig. The lady owner drove us to the shopping area of... More

Upon arrival in Hualien at 1210pm, Andy met us at the train station and arranged a driver to bring us on a half day Tarako Gorge tour. We had opted for a half day tour as we were only there for 2 nights and had planned to take the lung children (4 and 6) to Farglory Ocean Park on the... More

Very good service, delicious breakfast, very nice farm especially the super cute adorable pig. Stay here if you need a quiet place. Especially good for family becoz of the farm. Can play fireworks which I did plenty. Great thanks to Mr Chen for his service and knowledge of Hualien. Gets discounts at many places when u mention his name.. =)

Once we touch down in Hua Lien, were welcomed by mr & mrs Andy. They fetch us from the train station to the minsu. The minsu is away from town therefore fresh air is surrounded by the environment. We choose cai xia room. Indeed it is very cosy and comfort. The owner owns a farm behind the minsu so we... More
