The minsu has a very natural feel with rocks, woods as décor. There is a pond nearby with frogs, crickets & insects! There are alot of mosquitoes so use the lemongrass spray provided, very good! Rooms were big and comfy for 3 adults & 3 kids. Don't expect hotel style breakfast as this is a minsu, they provide porridge and... More

Location: Hualien is just 2hrs train ride from taipei. Minsu owner mr huang can give you a ride from train station. My family came from cingjing and we hired mr huang (NT45000) to pick us up from cingjing and bring us to various attractions along the way fr cingjing to hualien. Minsu/place: very clean and spacious. The bath tub is... More

I'm still staying here now as I write this review & back from a fabulous day out with the minsu owner acting as our tour guide. The place is clean, architecturally impressive & has a lot of character. There're animals like dogs, cat, ducks, birds on the grounds but none will disturb the guests but are a whole lot of... More

This place is definitely interesting. There's alpacas to feed in the morning and a more than copious breakfast, Taiwanese style or Western. They also have friendly pets that wander around. The building is also architecturally very interesting. The rooms are big & spacious, and the bathrooms also are big. The host will drive you around if you don't have a... More

I were recommended this guest house from friend's friend. After went through this guest house website, I had no hesitation for searching other B&B but, immediately contact them for booking. To my surprise, the owner not only assisted us to book the taxi for touring Taroko and fetched us from Taroko to Qing Jing farm, but, he himself was our... More

Stayed in this dream house for 3 nights. This house is more than just a minshu - the house is well-designed; we appreciated and enjoyed every part of it. Highly-recommended it for anyone who will go to Hualien and this place is also very suitable for families with kids. For animal lovers, there are 6-7 alpacas (2nd generation from New... More

We stayed three nights here and did not want to leave in the end. Besides the alpacas, the owner keeps a host of other animals and pets that essentially greets all of the guests that come into and leave this B&B. Hosts are warm, dedicated and knowledgeable. Goes out of their way to introduce the visitors to this combination farm/homestay.... More
