It was a wonderful experience in Cingjing and was made more memorable with the stay at Star Villa.

We came in from Sun Moon Lake and hired a car at TW$400 per person as there were only two of us. The journey took us an hour around the narrow and winding roads.

When we arrived we were greeted by the warmth hospitality of the owners, a middle aged couple. As the check in time was only at 3pm, we left our luggage at the reception and we explored the Little Swiss Garden which was a short 15 minutes walk from the villa.

Just beside the Little Swiss Garden you can also find Starbucks and MOS Burger if you wanted to grab a bite or coffee.

The owners told us that they will were arranging a complimentary transport to the Green Green Grassland Sheep Farm at 2pm so we headed back up to the villa before then.

After visiting the sheep farm we slowly walked down back to the villa via a hiking trail and we surprised at some of the sights along the way such as a beautiful sunset.

The villa is about 400 meters inwards from the main road so provides a quiet environment. However it also can be quite a walk, with luggage, if you did not have any transportation.

The old man will provide a tour of the stars on the roof of the villa at 9pm and will explain to you all the different stars.

We stayed in the standard double and the room was spacious. Decor was very homely and the balcony provides you a spectacular view of the sunset. However, do remember to close the balcony doors if you go out at night as the insects are attracted to the light in your room. Else you will be sleeping with a room full of them.

Do look out for a nice surprise when you turn the lights off when you go to bed.

The breakfast was a little bit of a disappointment as they served a local version so if you are like me who likes western breakfast you will probably end up eating toasted bread only.

We were also thankful to the many friendly and wonderful staff at the villa who took the trouble to help us carry our luggage up three floors. I did suggest to them to build a lift.

In summary, here's what we liked:
1) friendly and warm owners
2) helpful staff
3) spectacular view from the balcony (ask for a high floor)

What we disliked.
1) no lifts but staff were willing to help us with luggage
2) local breakfast (for me anyway)

Room Tip: High floor to be able to view the spectacular sunset. Close balcony doors or use the shutter to kee...

Warm welcome and greetings in the morning, was always a great start! They got our table all prepared even thoughtful to get us a high chair for my toddler and they even helped us to get our driver when they saw we were ready to get going.
The room was clean and the bed was huge! Great for my family to sleep with the toddler. The lawn was nicely decorated with grass so soft my toddler was willing to walk barefooted!
The view was breathtaking from the lawn.

We stayed at Star Villa on May for two days. Location of this villa is pretty good which is close to main road from about 10 mins. Very nice view from platform of villa which you can see the sunset at there. We stayed in superior double bed room with wonderful star design on the ceiling with two versions. We were surprise when turn off the light. A lot of stars over our head which was very similar as real. That's really romantic! The villa is managed by father and son, they were very nice and we loved to chat with them and played with the kids.

This is my first time stayed in Taichung, I will definity come back again in future.

We stayed at star villa's Venus room on the 26/03.

The owner of starvilla provided us with afternoon tea upon arrival. We took it out to the viewing platform outside the minsu, immersing ourselves in the awesome place. The honey pomelo tea was thirst quenching and the home baked biscuits were delicious!! They provide free transport to green green grassland at a specific time which is usually around 9 am.

Star villa is 10 minutes walk from the main road. During the journey into the minsu, one can enjoy a view of the mountainous landscape and if u're lucky, the sea of clouds. It is strategically located between 2 major attractions namely green green grassland and small swiss garden. Rooms in starvilla have a panoramic view of the mountainous landscape. If the sky is clear enough, they could catch the beautiful sunset on the stars gazing terrace or the platform outside the minsu. We only manage to catch a glimpse of the sunset.

The venus room was cosy, clean and very comfortable. The shower has very good water pressure. On the false ceiling above the bed, there is a starry sky lightings with a switch away. This provided some comfort for us since the sky was too cloudy for star gazing at night. One minus point was the water heater is only restricted to a certain timing. So you can't bath as and when you like =D.

Love this minsu!

We only stayed 1 night at Star Villa, Natou. Is really enjoy the envirornment! Star Villa located at high up of moutain, from the bus stop only use for 10 mins short walk reach to the Star Villa, you can enjoy the natural scenery surrounding within walking. con is just need to climb up once you reach to car park area before the lobby, but you will be feel worth it once you reach to Star Villa!

Star Villa located which with the very wonderful moutain view! is really beautiful and breathtaking you can't get the said wonderful view at the crowded town! Natural scenery surrounding at Star Villa!

We take the package which are package A for double room with balcony direct view to the moutain (NO BLOCK AT ALL), free breakfast, high tea and Dinner steamboat with reasonable price! once we reach to Star villa, the receiption are warming to welcome us and prepare the outdoor High tea for us which included the Tea and some handmade biscut (delicious!), you can enjoy the time because is facing to the nice moutain view with your high tea!

The room spacious, clean and nice, the balcony is wonderful to facing directly to moutain! Bathroom is basic but clean (please note, the hot water only be on start on 6am until 11pm so please don;t shower within the said time!) anywhere we are very satisfied!

For the steamboat dinner, we are be arrange at the restaurant just next the lobby (is family business) , very tasteful within the cool weather and damn enjoy!!

The hotel also FREE OF CHARGES to send you to JIngching farm, but you have walk back (around 20mins foot step) to villa or by bus. Must go to JIngching farm which you can be enjoy the time with all cutie sheeps!

I will highly recommend to stay this Villa, you won't be regret!

We stayed two nights in Dec 2011. We booked a family room and the scene from our room was beautiful throughout the day.

A short walk from the minsu, one can get to eat zichar (Chinese food)managed by the locals.

Simple breakfast and tea were included in our room rate.

This minsu is managed by father and son and they are nice and helpful people who make our stay a memorable one.

The owner can send you to Green Green Grassland and there is a walking trial back to the Minsu.

Swiss Garden, Carton King Restaurant and Mist Plaza are within walking distance from the minsu; so we have a variety of places to eat.

There is a table tennis room which we had a fun family game for an hour before we went for our dinner on the second night.
