We stayed at Doris for 4 nights and I can only echo what the majority of the reviews have already said. The house is in a great location. The rooms are nice, a good size, and clean, but really its the hosts that make this place do special. Greg and his family are lovely. They truly welcome you into their... More

We visited SML and chose to stay at Doris Home for 2 nights (21 & 22 April) after reading wonderful reviews about the place and Greg's hospitality. It was our first time in Taiwan, and our first destination upon arriving after hours of traveling on the plane, train and bus. But tired as we were, we were pleasantly refreshed by... More

Doris Home is simply a great choice in Sun Moon Lake. We were really glad that we found Doris Home B&B. It is very clean, pretty and modern. There are 3 rooms. We stayed in Garfield Room and loved everything in the room. I must say this room is more suitable for couples. The other 2 rooms look just as... More

It is a cozy and quiet place in perfect location. The hosts are very hospitable. The room is super clean and modern. The breakfast is yummy. There are two bikes you can borrow for free. We rode the scenic bike path around the sun moon lake and had a wonderful time. Flawless! 地點非常方便!在馬路邊但卻聽不到往來的人聲車聲。是個鬧中取靜的好地方。民宿主人們很親切友善。房間很乾淨,很多小地方都看得見主人的巧思。建築物很簡約、有質感,宛如藝術品一樣。早餐很美味。有兩台捷安特折疊車可以借用,到附近晃晃非常方便。

Greg and his family were fantastic hosts. We choose this homestay because of its convenient location. It's walking distance (even with luggage!) from the bus station and the pier.

Warm welcoming by Greg and he provided us useful tips to tour around SML. Love the Doris room and definitely suggest for couple to stay in. Strategic location, next door is 7-Eleven and a restaurant named Sun Moon is serving nice food! Well done Greg & Family, keep it up!

Greg is an excellent host, very responsive and helpful both before and upon arrival, making our trip most enjoyable and efficient. He's very good in communicating in English and Chinese (at least). The room (Doris) is good size and comfortable, quiet and clean. THe location right in the centre of everything at Sun Moon Lake cannot be beat. Highly recommended.
