I was introduced by a friend who had stayed with Angie twice before. Even though I was told that it was a wonderful home, my two days there were more than just "wonderful". We were first greeted warmly by Angie when arriving there in the evening. After putting in the luggage in our reserved room, the "Li Yu Shan" Room upstairs, we were taken around for touring the house. The whole house and its 5 guest bedrooms were all tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. After the whole day of touring and hiking in the Taroko National Park, we felt so relaxed in such a warm home. Angie then served us with hot woo-loong tea in the Dining Room. Her friendly and pretty mom joined us as well. We got to hear the history of this Angie's Place in that first evening.
Our next morning was greeted by a delicious and nutritious breakfast which consists of a bowl of seasonal fruit, a glass of black soy milk and a fusion sandwich (a Chinese pancake with salad and bacon). After filling us up, Angie had already laid out our whole day's itinerary with the driver came to the house to pick us up. She also recommended a local restaurant and reserved its signature chicken dish for us. All went well during the day tour and we returned home that late afternoon to enjoy her brewed tea and cut fruit in her famous tea room. She then brought us to a seafood restaurant for dinner. We had a very delicious meal with her and her mom's sweet company.
Our last morning's breakfast was equally good with different picks of fruit and a different sandwich. Angie then drove us to the Hualien train station. On the way, she made a brief stop at the local cultural center with display of the historical photos of the neighborhood areas. We also stopped by an organic farm as well as a shop to buy some famous local snack food. We bid farewell to Angie (and her mom prior at her home) and stepped on the train with contentment.
Casa de Angie is a home that made you want to stay there forever. Its tranquility setting combined with the hospitality of the two beautiful hostesses are unique and special. We are very grateful that our first home stay experience in Taiwan could be so sweet and memorable. Many thanks to Angie and her mom, we really appreciate their dedication and energy to upkeep such a high level home to welcome visitors from all over.
