“Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights in August. Rooms are nice and clean and the owners are friendly and helpful. Would recommend this to couples or families visiting Hualien (granted you like dogs). The dinner at their French restaurant is also surprisingly good!

We stayed here for 3 nights at the penthouse on the top most floor. Jeremy and his wife were such nice people to chat with! Really made our stay in Hualien so comfortable and memorable. One thing to note, there can be small mosquitoes so remember to close the windows and doors whenever possible to prevent them from coming in!
Other than that, we enjoyed every single bit of the stay there. Their 4 dogs made our stay so 'at home'! They are very friendly, they don't bite at all, and they're like the Huangs' children. :) Jeremy helped us book train tickets, brought me to buy a sim card at a mobile shop, waited for us, and just showed such incredible hospitality! It's amazing! They really made our stay there extra special, and we really thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

Jeremy and Angel Huang are wonderful hosts at this beautiful spot outside the hustle and bustle of downtown Hwalien. Although just a few minutes by car from the main business district of Hwalien, you feel like you are away from the city and can wake up to the most beautiful view of the mountains close by. The location is also conveniently close to both the train station and the airport. The house has a nice spacious yard and 4 wonderful dogs that are extremely friendly, quiet, and fun to be around. The rooms are all very clean and well decorated which gives the feel of being home. Jeremy and Angel are helpful with whatever needs you might have - transportation, tourest advice, and of course - filling your tummy with delicious food from their restaurant that is close by.

Two of us had a stay for just one night (regrettable, wish we could stay longer) in Nov at dolphin bay auberge, the host was extremely helpful and throughout our stay he made us very comfortable. He spoke english to us and he helped us book the train tickets although we were too late to book it, he put in alot of effort to get us on our way. The 4 dogs made our stay complete! It was truly a good experience, only unfortunate event was the rain. Evening we went to the dolphin bay restaurant and the food was fantastic, cooked by his wife! amazing atmosphere and very delicious. We will definitely visit again! :)

My mom and I visited Hualien in early Oct 2012 and had a warm welcome. It's a place suitable for family and children too, we could see a big lawn with happy dogs from our tatami room on the 3rd floor.
The owner, Mr Huang is a very dedicated and detailed person; he prepared the music CD which I liked in his Facebook, that was surprising. THANK you for driving us around to the attractions on National Day (as I didn't make arrangement with taxi driver)
The sweet lady boss, Mrs Huang aka Little Bear, even personally cooked the lunch for us the next day at their city restaurant. I enjoy the western lunch especially the fried crispy pasta and Ume tomato salad. However, my mom still prefer Chinese cuisine.
The tatami makes my mom smile, but we couldn't sleep well as the futon is too thin for us. Even though My mom has slept on hard bed before but somehow I would suggest ... to have an option to increase one more level of futon bedding.
Thank you for making Hualien unforgettable.

I have never been in Hualien before, and the first time at Dolphibn Bay was awesome!! Mr. Huang, the host, is nice and enthusiastic. He introduced so many amazing things and places in Hualien. The house is nice and it is the place that you will definitely feel like at home. And the cute dogs there will certainly make your trip more joyful. At night, you can have some wonderful conversation with Mr. Huang and having some dessert. The food provided is the best food that i have ever eaten. All the things that in Dolphin Bay made my trip leisurely and carefree, that is the reason i will definitely go back to it. If you want to stay away from the fancy city life, Dolpin Bay is your best choice!

I have never been to hualien before i went to dolphin bay, and it definately makes me want to go back and revisit the relaxing atmosphere again. The host,Mr.Huang, is really nice and hes also passionate about introducing and discovering the local sites. It makes traveling in Hualien a pleasant, relaxing, enjoyable experience.The food provided was also wonderful. The overall feeling of Mr. Huang's restaurant is elegant and peaceful, and the food was absolutely delicious! If u are looking for a trip that can keep u away from the annoying intense city life, Dolphan bay is a good option.
