5 Star Villa”

Room: Honestly, when I step in the room, it looks nicer than the picture. Very clean. Comfortable bed with heat pad. Heat up the bed, then turn off before sleep. Big sofa, big balcony with 180° views. Slippers provided. Bare feet also won't feel cold coz it's wooden floor. Take note not to leave balcony door open, got flies outside at night time. My room at first floor but no need to walk staircase (thumbs up). Toilet: Big and clean. Shower cream and shampoo provided. Comb, toothbrush, toothpaste, shaver, even have 2 small packs of facial cream. Surroundings: A big platform in front if the villa with nice mountain view, a fish pond (my son like it very much). Decorated with deers and a swing maybe going to Christmas soon. A deck on 3rd floor also with nice view. Alot of parking spaces. Breakfast: Simple but everything is delicious, epecially the mantou. The best breakfast and the most I ate in Taiwan thoughout these few days.

Stargazing, Cosy, Mountain View”

A simple B&B run by a family. Stargazing was one of the must-do in this accom. Booked 3 rooms in total, 2 with balcony. Imagine waking up to the morning sun with mountainous and misty view! Chilling by the balcony breathing the crisp cold fresh air. Room was clean and relatively spacious. Although the room looked aged, it has been well maintained. Breakfast was provided. 7-11 convenience store and eateries were a short 5min walk but pls activate ur phone torchlight as it gets dark with limited roadside lighting. Swiss Garden and Starbucks were accessible via a wooden trail but it gets really dark with absolutely no lighting. 5 of us carried torchlights from our phones. Remember to close the netting by ur doors/windows when u are not in ur room to prevent visits from bees and bugs. Remember to join the complimentary stargazing tour hosted by the owner at 9pm (not sure if it's daily). Highly recommended!

Excellent stay”

Friendly owners, stunning place and nice comfortable beds & sheets with excellent breakfast spread. The bed has warmer which is useful on cold days. The walk to nearby 7-11 and Swiss garden is 500m but I don’t think it is safe to walk with young children (slopes, narrow roads) especially at night. Staff helped to make dinner reservation with a few restaurants selections. The restaurant will fetch you to and back to Star villa. Owner also offered to fetch to QJ farm but got to walk back after that. We didn’t have the chance to visit the farm as it was raining all day long. Also missed the opportunity for star gazing. It still was a very relaxing stay nonetheless!

Exceptional”

Terry, his parents, Michelle (dog) and Kitty (cat) were all great hosts who made our stay wonderful. The location is sufficiently away from the main road to be able to chill at our balcony at night without disturbance from urban noises, but still walking distance to modern conveniences like 7eleven and local eateries. It's a minsu, not a hotel. There's no aircon, though the electric blankets and hot baths made us comfortable. There's no lifts and it's located up a slope. If you don't drive or have difficulty climbing, this might not be the place for you. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are definitely planning to return.

Very nice place”

Very nice villa to stay in! Nightly lessons about the constellation were also very informative with the guide using laser to explain all that can be seen at that night. We saw lots of stars! Its a short distance to walk from there to the carton king, and another distance to walk to the sky walk. Breakfast is home cooked and nice! Nor a lot of choices but delicious. The heated blanket works well too for the night and hot water are available for bathing in the night and morning. The different floors are also served by slopes from the entrance, so do not have to worry about carrying luggages upstairs. Rooms are named after constellations and planets. Theres also a friendly cat and dog there!

Very satisfied ”

Stayed a night in their Classic Double and that’s the best decision. The unblocked view was superb and sunset was so beautiful. The owners were so friendly and homely. They have a free stargazing tour on their rooftop whereby the guide explained the various stars to us. We were lucky that the sky was clear that night and saw a whole sky of stars. They offered shuttle services to nearby places too. Thank you for your hospitality. My Boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful villa with friendly doggie and cat. Owners are accommodating. Only thing to note is to arrive at check in time otherwise you wont be able to be in your room till the stated time. The villa is walking distance to carton king and few eateries. You can spot beautiful sunsets if the weather is clear and the onwer does an astrology session on stars and planet at 9pm every night.

While the decor was a little dated, the rooms were impeccably clean, the owners were thoughtful and even arranged for stargazing at 9pm when it was 1 degree outside. The hotel has lovely Sakura trees in bloom and the scenery was breathtaking. The best part is the chubby Labrador Michelle who greets every guests with a happy wag.
