The hotel itself is very pretty. The open air area, the lobby, the decorations.... Amazing spot to recharge, calm and peaceful. All the recommendations the owner gave were just great. Let it be restaurants where to eat, café to visit, the spot for sunrise watching, just everything. She even drove us to the nearby town to the restaurants. Many thanks.... More

During booking the discription of the superior room says: futonbeds, bathroom, flat screen tv and others. I guess the rest of the descripton was quite okay. But the futonbeds turned out to be very thin sleeping mats and the bathroom was just a small booth containing a toilet with a handshower and a sink. The flatscreen tv didn't work. Decoration...

A very warm and friendly boutique homestay with the owner who provided fantastic personalised attention to her guests. Detailed orientation of her home and possible activities puts you at ease. Meticulous decorations abound in the living hall. With nightfall the place looks really great. Being a small place it was great for fellow guests to acquaint and socialise. We thoroughly... More

I kind of don't really want to share too much because I wanna keep this place quiet and sacred, but this place is too good to not be known. This place is the true epitome of Taiwanese hospitality, the view is breathtaking, and I even meditated on the deck at night under the stars. The breakfast was simple enough and... More
