I booked this minsu about 2 mths before my trip and Andy (owner of the minsu) provided excellent advise on train bookings and Hualien tours.
Andy;s wife, Mdm Zhang picked up from the train station and even drove us to buy packet lunches.
The room that we booked was on the 3rd floor. It was spacious for the 3 of us (2 adults and one 4 yr old kid). Do visit the farm just behind the house to look at the pig, goats, chickens and turkey. It would be a good experience for the city kids. At night, ask Andy to bring you back to the farm to spot some fireflies.
In the evenings, they will drove you into the Hualien town for you to spend a few hrs there on your own. Remember to ask them to drive you to a shop to buy some fireworks and sky lanterns to let go on the guesthouse frontyard. We bought both as we do not intend to go to Pingxi in taipei for the sky lanterns.
They also have good contacts with drivers who can drive you around for the tour around Hualien. .
Lastly they were renovating their front yard when we were there. There were some small inconveniences but they made it up with their hospitality. By now the renovations should be completed and you will see a nicer living room and kitchen
