“Great time at Monet garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

My girlfriend and me booked a weekend at Lyju lake. We checked the internet and the lonely planet for a decent but not to expensive b&b. We decided to stay at monet garden. After a phonecall with the owner (who speaks decent english) we bookend the latin romantic room. Upon arrival it became clear that the room was already full. They immediately upgraded us to a very nice room. Beautiful wooden accents and a nice spacey room. Most importantly the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was clean, and there was a little terrace in front of our room where we could drink a nice red wine. The owner and his family were very hospitable and was kind enough to bring us to Hualien city when this was needed.

All in alll we had a great stay and definitely recommend it to everyone.

My family stayed in Monet Garden for two nights in July 2013. Joe and his family really went out of his way to make our visit very special, particularly helping us get a permit to visit the Mugua River Gorge. Without him, we would have undoubtedly missed this highlight. Our room was very comfortable and the whole place has a very relaxing setting (it reminds me of Bali). I'll be recommending this place to my friends and would have no hesitation to recommending it to others. Despite my lack of language skills, I really felt a strong sense of friendship.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is beautifully presented. You must try their sweet potato leaf juice! The hotel has plenty of ambience. This would be a good getaway for anyone who wants to stay outside of downtown Hualien.

Our family stayed with Joe and his family for three nights in April 2013. We were picked up at the railway and brought straight back to the motel. We had been traveling direct from New Zealand and were treated to a traditional dinner the moment we arrived. This was our second trip to Monet Garden, and will be recommeding it to any friends who plan on making a trip to the area. We were given great advice as to local attractions, and in some instances, transported by Joe to make the most of the local attractions, first hand. No request semed too difficult, and we truely enjoyed the atmosphere the owner provided to his guests.
If you are a lover of great coffee, then you will definitely love this location, as Joe imports and roasts his own brand of excellent cooffee.

住在莫內花園是一個美好的經驗,房間舒適、讓人可以放鬆。臨近鯉魚潭清晨可以散步或慢跑,享受清新的空氣及美好的湖光山色。若是4月中到5月初這段期間來訪,夜晚還可以看到螢火蟲!
民宿提供好喝的咖啡,而且,友善的主人能提供鄰近很多旅遊資訊,對初次甚至再次造訪者相信都會有意外的驚喜。
我非常推薦莫內花園咖啡農莊!
a great experience to spend a night at this B&B. The room is comfortable and easy. You can relax with a quiet and peace environment. There is a lake near this B&B, when I woke up in the morning, I jogged around the lake. I can saw the reflected image of mountains on the lake. I would suggest everyone must try to wake up early and see this. The air is so fresh and everyone was having a smile face to say hello! (So did I...). At night, the housekeeper led us to see a gather of fireflies. This is a seasonal activity if you can visit here from mid-April till early May.
The host is actually a coffee-lover. So you probably will not be disappointed about its coffee. And he can show you some "secret places" with superb scenery that you can not find on travel guides.
I would highly recommend foreigners to come here and enjoy!!!

We stayed in Monet Homestay during our one night stopover in Hualien. They have a wonderful location nearby a lake and suitable for those who seeks a quiet evening away from town. Most shops nearby close around 18:30 and the restaurant closes at 20:30 so it is really quiet after dark. Breakfast was wonderful with nice coffee and they accommodated our preference to the meal without an eye blink. The service-oriented mindset was really appreciated in this part of Taiwan. :)

The hosts were super-friendly and drove us to the train station when they learned we didn't have our own vehicle. During the ride they shared lots of stories with previous guests and gave plenty of advises traveling in the region. Highly recommended.

Trip advisor 居然不讓我用英文po評論!? 這還蠻神奇的....那我現在是不是要來湊個50個中文字? :P 或許trip advisor 可以改變一下設定? 摘要一下上面英文: 鯉魚潭旁,老闆人超好甚至還會送我們去火車站,需要小心蚊子(鯉魚潭附近應該都有這問題),雖然老闆放了很多蚊香蛋坐在外面時還是要小心。早餐很棒,咖啡品質難得的好!

Room Tip: If you would like to sit outside the room do bring some cream against mosquitos. There are plenty of...

Four years ago I discovered Monet Garden, and every year including 2013, it have made a return visit. This is my second home in Taiwan.
Most so called Guest Houses are guest houses in name only .
But Monet Garden is a place where you feel comfortable. The hosts are delightfull, the employees very sweet. Food is perfect,original, delicious hand made and not 'chemical industrial factory'' cakes, very quiet ( walls are not the usual 5 millimeters thick) . Large and comfortable bedrooms.
And don t forget to sip coffee which is locally made by the owner, a coffee specialist who visits Guatemala coffee plantations and then imports for our pleasure.
Price are fair taking into account all they offer us
Lots of to see in the area
