I chose this minsu out of a few that I emailed because Mr. Lee, the owner, was the most prompt in answering my emails and numerous queries. He also helped me arrange for pick up from the train station, a taxi tour to Taroko gorge and a special breakfast request for my hubby who couldn't take congee. The minsu is... More

This B&B is our first B&B experience in Taiwan, which is truly pleasant. The building is located in a quiet area in Hualien. We rented the entire house for a group of 6 people for one night. All, including the young and old, liked the house and the owners. All rooms are spacious and very clean with shampoo and other... More

Looking specifically for B&B type of accommodation to be our first B&B experience in Taiwan, Permaculture exceeded our expectations. Enjoyed visiting with the owner, his wife and grandson. Mr. Lee showed us beautiful countryside around Hualien County. To me, who spent childhood years in Taiwan back in the 50's, what we saw came very close to the beautiful nature as... More

We contact this B&B in advance to arrange the transportation to pick up us at the train station. It cost just only 120 TWD. We booked the room for 1 night (3 guess). The room is quite small for 3 people but it is not the big issue. The room is clean and the necessary facilities are provided. Even if... More

I had a few surprises during my stay at Permaculture. Firstly, although most of the reviews about this guest house are written in Chinese, the owner communicates very well in English. In fact, my email inquiry was responded in English. Secondly, my room was more spacious than I expected. A separate walk-in wardrobe provided the space for my luggage without... More
