Green Villa is worth the 15+ min car-ride to be transported from the busy Hualien train station to the bucolic setting of the post-card perfect guesthouse.

The family made sure transport is not a problem -- either offering us a lift or arranging rides with friendly taxi drivers.

A lot of hard work and love and thought have been put into the facilities and services. The family worked tirelessly and yet were always smiling, and patient with our many questions. We felt so welcomed, relaxed & at home, easing naturally into the “slow life” Bryan said people come to Hualien to experience.

If only time had slowed too, and our stay did not end all too quickly.

Very nice family run B&B. Very clean and efficiently run. Good breakfast, no problem that I am a vegetarian (after I informed them). The most outstanding thing however was how friendly the family is. Bryan and his parents were incredibly helpful and sweet with our 8 month old daughter: e.g. they found a baby bathtub for her as well a bathrobe and she played with Bryan's daughter entertained by the very sweet grandmother. The house itself is in a wonderful spot, looking at the mountains. Infrastructure wise the location is OK. I witnessed the owner helping out people to get to the train station. However, it is advisable from my point of view to have your own transportation as it isn't very central.

We stayed in a family room for 2 nights. The room we were in was very clean, comfortable and spacious. The Guesthouse is about 10-15 min drive south of the Hualien town centre and is in a quiet peaceful street. The nicely kept gardens around the house provide a calming oasis and there are lovely mountain views as well. We received very helpful advice from Brian on dining in and around Hualien and in planning our day trip to Taroko Gorge. The kids liked the attic sleeping area. Only negative was the pillows were all too high for our tastes - softer pillow options please. There are several car parking spaces right out the front. Overall, good value for money and we would stay again to enjoy the warm hospitality.

I book a room for 6 person initially I am very worried about the limited use of toilet since 1 room usually had 1 toilet. I am surprised that the toilet was divided into shower room, washing area and toilet. It was perfect for us since all 3 can use them at 1 time. The room was very clean and even the towel were soft and clean. My auntie who is usually very concern about the cleanliness think that the rooms was spick and span. The staff in the hotel was also very friendly. He even wrote to us before and after the trip to ensure we are all well and had got all necessary transport. I love the place and will certainly go there and stay again.

We have just returned from a three-day trip to Hualien, staying at the Green Villa. We were recommended to stay there by a friend who lives in Shoufeng, not that far away.

Our family felt so at ease and happy at Green Villa. The owners, and their son Mr Chen who has just started helping out with the family business, really went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They recommended local places to visit, and in one instance even drove us there. Our three and a half year old son liked the owner so much that he decided to follow 'Yeye' around whenever he could. And the owner's wife specially cooked baby food that our eight month old loved eating. Their son, Mr Chen, is a talented photographer and you could sense his joy at taking photos of people who visited and interesting places to see around Hualien.

For me, the most special part was sitting on the balcony outside our room, enjoying the view of the spectacular mist-covered mountains on one side and maple tree on the others. I felt so at peace sitting there, and the rest of the family felt very happy, too. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, my eldest son couldn't stop singing and keeps asking when he can go back to see 'Yeye'.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the rose room with balcony out the front.
