This homestay is made up of 4 linked houses and is located about 5 min drive from the Hualien Railway Station. The owner came to fetch us at the station in her car.
When we arrived, we were taken to one of the houses to get registered. Then the helpful lady there briefed us on the prices of taxis which could take us on a day trip to Taroko. Then after confirming one taxi, she took us to our "house" two doors away, gave us our keys and recorded our order for breakfast the next morning.
Our family room was located on the 3rd floor. Since this was a house, there was no lift. So we had to carry our luggages up the stairs ourselves, which wasn't very easy for us.
On ground floor of the house there were the sitting room with tv, equipped but not-for-cooking kitchen, dining area, small collection of books in a corner and a bathroom/toilet. Water dispenser was located here.
The room we had was not spacious. There were 2 queen size beds, a sofa, a fridge, and not much space left for luggages. Beds were comfortable enough. But there was no cupboard to hang our clothes, except for a simple rack on the wall with a few hangers.
Bathroom was large, no lock for the frosted glass door though. The wash basin was outside of the bathroom. Toiletries were sufficient.
The good point is the balcony, though small, we could at least get out of the cramped room for some open space, overlooking a small farming patch, and view of mountains further beyond.
There were also free bicycles for us to use, which was very useful, since it was quite far to walk from here to the town (20min walk according to the owner) or to the market area. So we took the bicycles and cycled to town and to the beach.
Breakfast was like a take-out, delivered to our room at our requested time, packed in paper bags each of our order: a drink (coffee or tea) and one item of sandwich or burger or fried carrot cake or omelette.
