This property boosts the true beauty of Sun Moon Lake. With its ideal location near the Shuishe pier, one can enjoy all the usual tourist attractions with minimal fuss. Yet the stay at Laurel Villa will leave you with a breathtaking and memorable experience that would unveil a different side of Sun Moon Lake which many tourists may overlook when... More

This was my second trip to Sunmoon lake. I had a great experience this time around. The owner helped us arrange a taxi to pick us up from Alishan to the Villa for 2000nt. Once we arrive the staff helped us settle in and answered all our questions. The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable for taiwanese standards at this... More

Great rooms, modern, clean, free tea and bathroom utensils. The villa is a family business and everyone makes you feel so welcome! We were given great restaurant recommendations and tipps for cycling route. Also for only 50 TWD (2$) they took us in the evening to see the fireflies in the tea plantages in the mountains and in the morning... More

My boyfriend and I both agree that this minsu is the best we have stayed in during our 5 weeks in Taipei. Our budget is mid-range, and we have found that for the price, this minsu is a great deal. Some reviews complained about cleanliness and having to wheel their luggage from a far distance. Seriously? It's a walk that... More

Mr Wang is very knowledgeable about the local geographical information. Too bad we missed the morning walk due to heavy fog.. Location is great, easily found and very accessible.. About 1... More

My family and I stayed for 2 nights at Laurel Villa. The hosts were warm and friendly, and the rooms are spacious and clean. The price included breakfasts and they even placed their specialty tea bags in each of the rooms (can't get enough of their awesome tea)! We went on a special firefly trail at night and also the...

Stayed 2 nights in the Red room. The room is longish with the bed right near the window and a 2 seater sofa in the centre facing a TV mounted on the wall and the bathroom right at the the other end. The window blinds were down all the time due to privacy issue as we were looking out at... More

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
