“Hospitable, comfortable stay @ Casa De Angie”
Reviewed 24 December 2012

We travelled in a group of 6 + 1 (a 2-y/o) to Taiwan; drove from Cingjing to Hualien (note: this is something I would NOT recommend), and arrived at 6ish at night.

My friends were shocked - from the outside, it seems like I'd booked a remote place. Their fears were quelled when we went in. Angie and mum have done up the place quite nicely, and it's pretty spacious. There are a few rooms on the first floor, but ours was on the second, all the way at the end of the hallway.

The room we booked was for 6-8 pax. It was a nice size for us, and quite well-designed too. It's like a 'loft', so the family of 3 took the upstairs while the rest of us were downstairs. There's a small sitting area for 2 that overlooks the garden in the aisle-way just before the toilet, and a small balcony. Simple, but nice for us.

The toilet was done very nicely as well - shower, bath tub, plus shelf + hooks for us to put our stuff. There were 8 hooks (very thoughtful!) that were well utilized by us. Angie provided shampoo etc, and was also thoughtful enough to provide baby shampoo as well for the 2 y/o.

It was a comfortable stay; no complaints about the bed and pillows. The 2 y/o slept quite soundly on both nights, so I'd say it's pretty good!

Breakfast was simple & healthy; no complaints at all whatsoever. Fruits, a "sandwich", home-made soy drink ... and at night, when we found Angie at the dining table working on her computer, she invited us to have a special-blend tea that was quite a treat.

This is a beautiful minsu. What I truly appreciate was how
- Angie went out of her way to help my driver friends plan the driving route from Hualien back to Taipei (at this point, the highway between Hualien and Taipei has crashed so DO NOT DRIVE)
- Li MaMa woke up at 3.20am to prepare breakfast for us
- both Angie and Li MaMa made sure we were well taken care of, and bid their farewells to us all at 4.30am

MY SUGGESTIONS
1) Angie gave us personal food recommendations. You must ask her for the steamboat one ... that was YUMMY. I doubt it'll be on tourist maps because this steamboat place is located at the front of someone's house.

2) There are different bath tubs in each room. There's the standard one, and then there's what my friends call the "tub" in which you can comfortably sit. So if you've a party of 2-4, and this matters to you, look at the pictures on the website and then choose your room.

3) DRIVE in Hualien. There's parking space at Casa De Angie.

TRAVELLING NOTES
Casa de Angie is not in the heart of Hualien; it's in Shoufeng, which is about a 20-25min drive into Hualien (my benchmark of Hualien being the train station). To get to Taroko, it's about an hour. Slightly less than an hour to 七星潭 (Seven Star Beach).

My suggestion: Train down to Hualien from Taipei, and then drive around Hualien.

We're a Singaporean couple who visited Hualien during mid Nov. Through our friend's recommendation, we stayed at casa de angie for two days between 16-18Nov and we loved it. The owner, Angie, is a warm and friendly lady. With her mum, they make great host and cooks who whipped up delicious breakfast and healthy homegrown fruits. I also like how fresh potable water are made available to our room every morning, and their picked oolong tea is superb. Very enjoyable stay in Casa de Angie, we enjoyed talking with the host, and Angie helped us throughout the stay by getting really nice and friendly drivers to bring us around the place. We don't have to worry about places to see and eat as they always have great recommendations! We loved the sushi very much. Thanks Angie!

I picked Casa de Angie for our family of 7's 3D2N stay based on the good reviews here. I have nothing to complain about the premises as it has a nice environment. They are Karaoke room, tea appreciation corner (The host, Angie worked in a tea company for 10 over years) and a big garden in the premises.
The continental breakfast was home-made by Angie and her mum. The first breakfast was a bacon sandwich, home-blend soy drink, fruits and coffee/tea. The second breakfast was also the home-blend soy drink, bacon 'prata' wrap, fruits and coffee/tea. I would say that it would be more ideal if they vary their breakfast items for the 2 breakfasts (as in, not to have bacon for the 2 consecutive breakfasts or have local breakfast items). Also, it will be great too, to add alternative drink choices like, fruit juice(s) for the guests. Oh well, I am too demanding :P Overall, the breakfast was good.
This B&B is located near ShouFeng train station (寿丰) or about 25-30min away from Hualien city centre or Hualien train station. The pick-up from ShouFeng train station is FOC. However, the one-way trip from Hualian Station to the B&B location for 7 of us was NT1000, kindly arranged by Angie. However, i then realised that it seems a bit expensive. Yuli's Juhu Homestay's owner, sent and charged us NT1000 from Juhu to Angie de Casa, and it was almost a 2-hr journey. A transfer trip from Taoyuan Int'l airport to taipei city on a MPV was only NT1200 (a 30-40min trip). If you are travelling by train, i would suggest that staying in Hualien is more convenient as most B&Bs at Hualien provide free pick-up from Hualian station and the train schedule from Hualien Station is more frequent.

Angie在此首先要感谢您选择 Casa de Angie作为在台湾花莲旅游的休憩点。因为花莲地形狭长,南北约有210公里,Casa de Angie大约座落於中央。如果要北上逛逛花莲的夜市,诚如您所说的,车程大约是25至30分钟,离太鲁阁国家公园约是50分钟的车程。若您选择南下泛舟、溯溪、玩飞行伞、叁观牧场、泡温泉…….等也非常便利。这是一个安静位於纵谷的前日治时期农村,却又不失生活的便利性,如wifi、ATM提款机、超市、便利商店……等,所以Angie选择在此购地建屋,希望将这里的好环境与大家分享。
接送服务部分,因为要离开往台北的当天早晨要赶早,不能耽误了花莲的火车班次,七人和行李T4大车一车就能装下,否则若分两车车资不但无法省下,又可能耽误时间,Angie以为这是最万无一失的方法。台湾虽小,就是在花莲和台东计程车的计价方式也非常不同。台北专跑桃园机场接送的车因为一天可以跑上七八趟,所以只要油资打得平,竞争非常激烈,价钱自然便宜。花莲跑车站的计程车最便宜的也要NT400元一车,正常跳表要约近NT6 00元,况且临时叫车不知道是不是能同时来两部车即时送您们前往。 Juhu Homestay的收费应是连他们家T4的汽油费才刚好打平,因为往返Casa de Angie和Juhu Homestay 近200公里,赖大哥的服务真的是没话说。
早餐的部分正如下方图示,恰好是第一天和第二天不同的早餐。至於饮品部分有台湾的乌龙茶、季节性的香草茶如薄荷、柠檬叶等及现煮咖啡,佐以至少四至五种新鲜水果做为早餐的一部份,目前暂时没有柳橙汁等,与您的饮食期盼不同,Angie深表遗憾,也会积极构思改善之道。
说了这麽多,其实Angie真正要讲的的就是如果您在Angie家住宿期间有什麽需求,请您提出来,如果Angie可以办得到,就一定会全力以赴,如果不行,Angie也一定会努力给您一个合理的答案,期盼您的旅行是愉悦值得回忆的,不带有一丝丝遗憾。

My mum and I really wanted the best possible minsu experience so many people talk about for Taiwan. The short 3 days stay could be summed up in one word - "authentic". In all aspects of the word - whether it's the sincere thought that went into every furnishing, meal or trip recommendation. Anqi and her mum are truly sincere hosts who want their guests to have the best Hualien experience. We especially enjoyed the after dinner conversations, these are what make a minsu stay so much more meaningful. Will definitely come back to this second home if we have the chance to revisit Hualien.

I had the pleasure of staying at Casa de Angie for 2 nights during my time in Hualien. It was originally recommended to me by family members and its safe to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the B&B.

The B&B itself is located in the middle of a small village, surrounded by a picturesque landscape of fields and mountains. The rooms are warmly decorated and extremely spacious.
Angie and her mother are both wonderfully hospitable hosts - providing my friends and I with lots of information about the area, helping us to organize a day trip to Taroko Gorge and preparing an excellent breakfast made with local organic produce.

I would recommend Casa de Angie to anyone visiting Hualien and wanting to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily city life.

If you come to Hualien, be sure to stay at Casa de Angie. Clean and beautiful architecture and decor. Very delicious homemade, healthy breakfast. The owner, Angie and her mom are super friendly and knowledgeable. Please do make the time to chat with them. Angie is a great story teller. This is going to be my "home" in Hualien now.
