“Awesome place, friendly host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

This place is really awesome. The house looks exactly like the pictures, very cute, clean and large room with a lot of nice details. The owners' grandsons pictures were on the wall and it's really nice. Very good breakfast and very cute family dog, the host likes to talk to people and learn about you, they gently care about you and you can hear their stories too. The only con may be it's not in Hualien downtown but we rent a car so that's okay!

They are really friendly gentle owners, with lovely gardens. It's a very pleasant stay, they can offer advices to places around. The only con is no wifi in the room. It's a very friendly county, with lots of things to do.

It's a wonderful stay for my family of 5 including mother in law. Our 6 & 9 yo girls were warmly welcome by granny & grandpa whom sincerely settle us in upon arrival after sunset. The details of the interior & exterior were so well taken care... it simply sets you in to a relaxing mood right away. Breakfast was great even for my picky girls. Bryan is a very nice guy! He even share his photography tips to me & give great advises to our itinerary. It's a pity we only stay for 2 nights. Can't wait to revisit......

Green Villa is worth the 15+ min car-ride to be transported from the busy Hualien train station to the bucolic setting of the post-card perfect guesthouse.

The family made sure transport is not a problem -- either offering us a lift or arranging rides with friendly taxi drivers.

A lot of hard work and love and thought have been put into the facilities and services. The family worked tirelessly and yet were always smiling, and patient with our many questions. We felt so welcomed, relaxed & at home, easing naturally into the “slow life” Bryan said people come to Hualien to experience.

If only time had slowed too, and our stay did not end all too quickly.

Very nice family run B&B. Very clean and efficiently run. Good breakfast, no problem that I am a vegetarian (after I informed them). The most outstanding thing however was how friendly the family is. Bryan and his parents were incredibly helpful and sweet with our 8 month old daughter: e.g. they found a baby bathtub for her as well a bathrobe and she played with Bryan's daughter entertained by the very sweet grandmother. The house itself is in a wonderful spot, looking at the mountains. Infrastructure wise the location is OK. I witnessed the owner helping out people to get to the train station. However, it is advisable from my point of view to have your own transportation as it isn't very central.

We stayed in a family room for 2 nights. The room we were in was very clean, comfortable and spacious. The Guesthouse is about 10-15 min drive south of the Hualien town centre and is in a quiet peaceful street. The nicely kept gardens around the house provide a calming oasis and there are lovely mountain views as well. We received very helpful advice from Brian on dining in and around Hualien and in planning our day trip to Taroko Gorge. The kids liked the attic sleeping area. Only negative was the pillows were all too high for our tastes - softer pillow options please. There are several car parking spaces right out the front. Overall, good value for money and we would stay again to enjoy the warm hospitality.
