This home stay by the ocean, was truly fabulous and as a group of friends who had rented 3 rooms, we had an excellent time observing the sunrise, enjoying the very fresh breakfast, sipping a drink on the terrace late night and being enthralled by the picturesque view from our rooms. The parrot that belonged to the host was a... More

Epitome of 民宿(minsu) in Taiwan- tasteful modern architecture + warm hospitality. Attention was paid to every detail, breakfast included. This is a place to rest and relax, perfect for a seaside retreat.

My Taiwanese friend suggested this minsu to me. I booked a room without hesistation just because I wanted to see the Pacific Ocean. The moment when we arrived, I knew I did not make a wrong choice. Our family room for 4 with a huge bathroom that overlook the Pacific Ocean was spectacular. The view was just amazing, except it... More

The moment I step into If Ocean, I loved this place. It was surrounded by mountain and facing the sea. The interior was nice and beautiful, provide us with big dinning area where we can buy the food back from outside and eat at the dinning area. Do note that the place was about 20 mins drive from the city,... More

We booked this hotel (Minsu) thru my colleague's recommendation.The room is clean, spacious and very pleasant to stay. It's a pity we only stayed for 1 night. the lady boss is very friendly and waited until 10+pm for us to return from the night market. the view of the Pacific Ocean is fantastic from the 3rd level and the breakfast...

Everything was great! Staff there are very nice, helpful and friendly. Place is super clean, neat and tidy. Can't ask for more for the scenery. Sea and mountain view. Missed the sunrise. Will definitely go back again to stay a few days.

Splendid place and splendid people. We reached late at night and all the restaurants were closed. The lady who ran the place offered us her kitchen to make whatever we wanted. The view over the ocean was, well, awesome. Some of the rooms faced the ocean while others faced the hill behind it. Both were good views. The terrace had... More

We enjoyed our stay here but the location is rather far from the city area of Hualien. It depends on how you see it. If you want to shop at the city or want to go to zhi qiang night market for food then it is quite a distance away, approx 30-40minutes drive. But if you like a quiet area... More

Nice property and good access to the nearby oceanarium. A good place for star-gazing. The owner family offered extra help for transport and laundry. Breakfast is impressive. Our family enjoyed the 3D2N stay there.

My family & I stayed @ If-Ocean (14-16 June, 2013). This place was very elegant, comfy and relaxing. Blessed with beautiful team (ladies) and a thoughtful driver and guide, 紀先生 (0921-633238). We visited Taroko Gorge, did river tracing (溯溪) with 好野人官網 http://www.wilds.com.tw and visited great restaurants or local food. We really enjoyed and loved this place:) Thank you.
