Stayed here for two pleasant nights while exploring Sun Moon Lake. Took bus from Taichung and walked around corner down street to the steps to the dock. Laurel Villa is just across the street. Homey room with amazing wood floors, comfortable bed. Amenities included not only the bottled water, but special teas, that if I could do it over again,... More

This is not a typical hotel as you actually stay at the owners home so they take great pride in this place. Wayne and his wife will take great care of you. If you ask them nicely, they will also arrange a nice morning hike for you.

We stayed here only 1 night but it was very nice. Nice, big and stylish room, with all the comforts. I'm still recovering from the flu and the owner made sure to ask how I was feeling a few times, he helped out to ensure that the heater was working properly and he gave us great advice on what to...

The location is excellent. Room is tastefully designed, decent and clean. Breakfast experience is good, and the owners are nice people. Best of all, remember to ask if there is morning walk, if there is, wake up by all means, it would be a rewarding walk! I have to say it again, wake up and go! The place is highly... More

Laurel Villa is a B&B located around Sun Moon Lake. The staff are very helpful and caring. The rooms are wonderful... with a huge TV with many channels. The beds are also comfortable and spacious. Laurel Villa also serves a healthy, scrumptious breakfast. They also provide Sunrise tours with spectacular scenery. One downside is the location. As it is located... More

We stayed here for two nights. It was clean, nicely decorated and they serve a good breakfast. Above all, the owner gave us excellent advices on where to go hiking, where and when to take pictures and where to eat. He also offered to take us in the morning to a special place where the sunrise would be very beautiful!

I had an awesome experience staying at Laurel Villa! The owner Wayne, together with his family, were very warm and hospitable towards all the guests. The morning walk was very memorable and enriching for me. I always enjoy interacting with the locals and understanding their history and culture. The breakfast was really hearty too, and they even squeezed in a... More
