Guests are offered free breakfast for one day, and there is a menu consisting of sandwiches, spaghetti, panfried carrot cake and various types of drinks including coffee and soya bean drink (dou jiang).
More importantly, the houseowners are very warm and helpful people. We were not required to pay any deposit or any funds to reserve the room. It was indeed nice for the owners to trust us. The owners were also very willing to offer advise on Hualien attractions, purchase of train tickets and guide hire.
