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. When we arrived, Greg warmly welcomed us. Though our room wasn't ready yet, he showed us the common area and walked through the attractions of Sun Moon Lake. It was like...

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 was away, so daddy yu was there for us when we arrived. He was friendly and helped us with our heavy luggage to our room, Doris Room - which has a balcony. He then shared with us the places to go for sightseeing and ideal sun rise location for viewing. He also gave us a pair of free roundtrip...

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.

Firstly, this place is themed after cats. So if you have something against cat, this may not be for you. But otherwise, you should enjoy it very much. There are even 2 real cats here when I am staying here. So, why is this place so great? It is close to the harbor of the Sun Moon Lake. I am...
