Nicest place so far in Taiwan. a little more upmarket minsu/b&b. Operations very simple and smooth. Breakfast is staggered to ensure enough seating and adequate time to prepare. Thoughtful layout of reception/dining. Nearby restaurant had no more place and had stopped taking reservations. So the owners of IF let us raid their kitchen and espresso machine! Very sweet couple and... More

The B&B was great! The place was tastefully designed and decorated with lots of natural light coming into the whole building. It was very modern and there is a 3rd floor viewing gallery to watch sunrise and the starts on a clear night. What impressed me not was the hospitality of the hosts who went out of their way to...

Stayed 2 nights in the sea facing bedroom on the first floor. The b&b is well maintained and the rooms well appointed, spacious and clean. Breakfast is served in the dining area located on the first floor... so if u are afraid u may be disturbed by the noise, ask for a higher floor. We were fine as we start... More

Stayed for 2 nights. PROS: 

Location - it's far away from city distractions so you can just while the time away with nature. The only reminder of city life would be the occasional traffic that passes along Highway 11 - but I don't think it's much of a disturbance at all. 

Hospitality - IMHO, this is one of the selling... More

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.
