“Trusted and comfortable minsu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I like this place for a few reasons, the young lady at the reception desk is friendly, helpful and has travelled Taiwan extensively herself and shared nice places to visit. She stays at the place, so its really safe. It's clean, good shower pressure, washing machine for use, warm and delicious breakfast served to your room. You can request for sugar free coffee and sugar free soya bean milk, mix them up and voila, my favourite sugar free coffee with soya milk. And the pancakes and radish cakes are really good. The owner will prepare and make sure it arrives piping hot to your room at the hour of your request. Quiet environment, a great lounge, drinking water, tour arrangements, complimentary pickup. And the free bicycles with baskets really come in handy, we cycled all around town, tried the local delicacies in a map prepared by the owner, cycled to the chisingtan beach, it was a very relaxing and good to explore the town on bike... this place has everything you need for a travel easy, comfortable stay.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

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.
