Five of us traveling with a rental car. Our host Sally was very welcoming and friendly upon our arrival, which relieved some of our stress from the delayed flights and managing sim cards, picking up the rental car etc. Sally provided us details of transportation in the local area, toured us around the apartment. They had everything that was needed or might be used during our stay from snacks, tea, coffee, extra quilts, cosmetics, kitchenware, bathroom amenities. Basically everything in the house, you can use. The first thought when Sally opened the door to the property was that I made the right choice.
The property is located in Tam Tsui in Taipei city on the higher floors hence the view during morning and night was absolutely beautiful. The three bedroom was well furbished and clean. Each room you can see the view with the master room having a balcony. Lounge was very comfortable, large sofa with a great view on the side while enjoying movies or TV. I loved the bathroom where you get to choose the function of heating the room first before you go in. We didn't use the kitchen much but it had everything that we needed such as water boiler and knives for the fruits that were provided.
It is not far from Yang Ming shan hence we went there to enjoy the hot spring spas and went for a short hike around the hot spots of where the sulfur and boiling water originated. The local cuisine was also fabulous! Tam Tsui Lao Jie and Yu Ren Ma Tou both were highlights of the area in Tam Tsui. There was alot of small delicacies and hot snacks from one end of the street to the other. A very different vibe to having a main course meal and the liveliness of the street and friendliness of the people made our tour more fun!
Generally we really enjoyed our stay and loved the comfort we felt during our stay. The view is really beautiful up there and I would recommend this place to my friends and family if they choose to come to Taipei. Even if you didn't have a rental car, the apartment provided transport to the subway and the timetable is given upon arrival. Charge is 20NT each person. Very convenient!
