          Hi Greg, We are from Thailand and have stayed at your guest house before since last two years. We are very much love your place in Sun Moon Lake. As now we plan to travel to visit Sun Moon Lake again in May and this time we have 7 persons. So, as I remember your guest house only have 3 rooms for 6 persons but I have seen some reviews from your quests via Trip Advisor and understand that you will have a new guest house, where we believe that we can stay at that place for 7 persons. Please could you advise what we should manage to book your guest house properly. Thanks, Ittirote
