My wife and I stayed at Small Swiss Homestay for two-days and one night in January 2017 and we cannot speak more highly of our experience. Uncle Charlies was our driver and guide for the two days and he truly went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and that we were well taken care of. What...

Stayed two nights at this lovely 民宿 (minsu) in a family room with two double beds. Mountain view which overlook a tea plantation. Lucky to witness the Sea of Clouds with beautiful sunset which transport us to another realm. Breakfast is pasta with croissants paired with their fragrant Oolong tea. A great place to recharge and rejuvenate our weary souls...

This is an overdue review. Stayed here 4 years ago, travelling with a friend. Our guide was David. The homestay was located mid way of Alishan, it was sitting on a plot of tea plantation. The package includes homestay, meals and sight seeing. The package is well planned, not too tiring, but get to see a lot of attractions. Food...

We signed a 3D2N tour with the homestay and was very happy throughout. David was our driver and guide, his wife made breakfast and made up our room for us. Their house and room is clean and what greets us everyday when we woke up is the awesome, breathtaking view from our window. David is thoughtful and helpful, he shared...

My friends and I wanted to book a few nights stay at the Swiss and we contacted Mr David given on their website.

First,we apologize for David's bad reply to your request because he didn't have patience to reply clearly why he didn't reserve the room for you if you didn't booked the experienced local driver's transportation. This homestay's location is in the tea plantation with a very narrow and windy road leading to homestay which is about 2 km away from the...

When we reached the B&B, it was already very dark and we were all tired after our flights and travelling. We could not see the view outside. The B&B facilities and image are basic, feels more like a home than a hotel. The next morning, when we looked out of the window, we were awe strucked by the beautiful scenery...

Charlie and his wife were very hospitable hosts. They picked us and another Singaporean up from the High Speed Rail Station and drove us all the way up to their property.
