We are two Americans who went to visit Hualien after visiting Taipei for one week. It was so nice to spend a little quiet time in this area after visiting busy Taipei. The scenery we saw on the train ride there was lovely. It was quite easy to travel by train from Taipei to Hualien and the Fun House was a short taxi ride from the Hualien train station. Just be sure that you have the address in Chinese as many taxi drivers in Taiwan do not speak or read English.
As for the Fun House itself, a place like this would cost a fortune to stay in in the U.S. The hosts went overboard to help us and all of them (not just Ann) spoke very good English. The rooms were tastefully decorated and looked like something you would see in a magazine! Fresh flowers were always on display in the Minsu and all of the rooms were beautiful and inviting (we peeked at them all!). The cable TV came with lots of movie channels!
Unfortunately, we did not get to visit the beautiful sights due to my sweetheart getting sick right before we arrived, but we heard from others staying there that the sights were spectacular. In fact, we spent nearly all of our 4 days/3 nights in our room in the Minsu! We would have been miserable anywhere else, but our room was so comfortable and the hosts so nice, that we felt right at home.
I would not hesitate to return to Hualien again. I think it's definitely worth taking a trip there from Taipei. If you do not speak Chinese, there are English-speaking drivers available to take you sightseeing (search the forums here and book ahead), and we found that most people spoke a little English when we went downtown for some shopping and eating. Best of all, the people in Hualien were so unbelievably friendly! Our taxi drivers always smiled and waved goodbye to us and people at restaurants were always happy to help us with ordering. I hope we will have a chance to come back and complete our sightseeing.
Stay at this place! It is a true beauty with wonderful, wonderful hosts!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great! The mini-provence was actually a perfect size and even had a desk, and...

From the moment we entered, David was very helpful and even carried our suitcases to the room for us. His wife and daughter were baking cookies in the kitchen and let my kids have a go too. The kids immediately warmed up to Ann who speaks very good English. She would even pack some snacks for us each morning before we headed out for the day.

David, Sherry and Ann are such hospitable folks who have graciously opened up their home to strangers. My husband asked "How does a B&B like this work? Aren't you afraid that you might have bad people as your guests?" Ann replied with a laugh "We have had zero problems all this while. Why are you bad people?"

They were also very helpful in giving suggestions where to go/eat and what to do. Our room (Flushing Paris) was very spacious and comfortable with a little nook where the children loved to play in the morning. There's a lovely view of the mountains from one of the windows too.

The family loves decorating and are always changing the colour and theme of each room. The whole house is wifi-enabled.

Even though I'm not vegetarian, I looked forward to the interesting organic vegan variety at breakfast every morning. My kids loved the bread and Sherry and Ann had to continually replenish the butter.

Sherry also runs a spa downstairs. The room looked so inviting but sadly I didn't get the opportunity to try out her aromatherapy massage.

There's so much love poured into Fun House. You won't want to leave.

We were a group of two couples - my parents as well as my husband and I. We took 2 rooms - Flushing Paris & Countryside France during our 2 nights' stay.

From the first moment we stepped into the minsu, we felt very welcome by Sherry who made us a nice pot of tea, sat us down and asked about how we would like to spend our day. When we said we wanted to go explore the city centre, she pulled out a map and gave us recommendations on places to eat and for souvenirs.

The next evening, my mum and I decided to try the spa after all the walking at Taroko Gorge the 2nd day. What can I say? The spa was fantastic - I am never one who enjoyed spas since I often feel more pain than relaxed under the therapist kneading strokes. But at Fun House, my joints were loosened and my mind was rejuvenated - wonderful experience there and recommended to book an evening appointment to end your day of walking!

The minsu was very clean and rooms were spacious esp Flushing Paris. One thing to mention, the breakfast is awesome! After stuffing our faces silly at Taipei, we loved the organic, nutritious and healthy breakfasts at a Fun House. It was a perfect compliment to the clean air and beautiful scenery of Hualien!

It was a very enjoyable stay for us - thank you for warmly welcoming us into your lovely home. We had a great time in Hualien!

It has been a very impressive homestay experience for us. We had the most challenging combination, consisting of a young toddler who loves to walk around and a pair of elderly parents who can't walk a lot of steps. The host is very thoughtful to allow us to take the Family room (at no additional cost) and the Mini Provence room on 3rd floor so that we are near to each other. The rooms are very tastefully renovated and well-kept. We are deeply impressed by the organic breakfast which the host provided for us. We were full and satisfied every morning after breakfast, even though it was vegetarian meal. The host and family helped us with some suggestions to our iternary in hualien as this was our first visit. They also helped us to arrange a local tour guide who is knowledgable about hualien and taroka. Even though we did not completely the tour round taroka, the visit to Qixing lake was mind-blowing, the scenic beach and lovely pebbles made us forgot how hot the summer weather was. Though it was just a 3D2N stay, we truly enjoyed this homestay and look forward to other time coming back to hualien and stay here.

The host is a family of 3, speaks good English, and very very hospitable. The place is located in a quiet local neighbourhood, with a short walk to shops and amenities. Its also a short 5-10min drive to the main train-station which goes to Taipei.

If you need a reason to book this place, thats the Breakfast!!! The host makes Excellent breakfast with organic-vegetarian ingredients - gives you all the nutrients and energy that you need to continue your day.
