This is likely one of the most unique place in which one can stay. If you are in need of the comforts of a modern hotel, don't come here for the beds are comfortable, but quite basic. The shower is in the same space as the toilet. The chairs are log stumps without backs. The entire site is as quaint...

Flexibility: We were initially booked into a separate building away from the main building with dinning hall. When we arrived Mr Choo exercise flexibilty to locate us in rooms within the latter building so that it is more convenient for our aged parents. Dinning : The meals served were appetising and nutritious. We like the breakfast buffet style and consciously...

If you'd like to find some peace and quiet while immersing yourself in the great nature and the most authentic Taiwanese hospitality, this is definitely the place to be. The bedroom was clean with a wooden fragrance to it. The dinner and breakfast were made from tasty local ingredients. Free nighttime and daytime sightseeing tours were offered with an interesting...

After one night the kids both spoke excitedly about going back in college to work at the farm. We arrived to an incredible home cooked vegetarian meal, which they timed perfectly for our arrival. After settling into our cozy room, we went for a night stroll with the owner, for whom Aza, our 13 year old, developed a great affinity....

The owner from my previous minsu very kindly drove us here (40 mins journey). Fortunately there was an intern (Amanda) from Hong Kong who was around and she could speak English. She brought us around the neighbouring farms for a walk as we arrived early. Lala, the dog with the sad looking face, went along with us. It was funny...

It was a long research for an unique Eco organic Minshu in Taiwan that brought us to 老五民宿 OldFive. Nestled in the mountain valley, it's surrounded by the Mother Nature. Absolutely the best experience and stay. Check-in by 6pm to enjoy organic dinner👍 then an Eco tour around the Minshu to understand ecosystem around the farm and Minshu. Beautiful environment...

Stayed for three nights. It is in Nantou, a little far off the usual trek but definitely worth a visit if you are seeking a quiet, peaceful environment. We booked a day taxi in Taichung that dropped us off in the evening - otherwise they offer a pickup at the HSR (1600NTD for the one-hour journey to the minsu) or...

We visited this beautiful b&b as a family and with my parents. So we rented the largest bedroom to accommodate a family of five with three young kids and another room for my parents.

This place is rustic but has all the basic amenities. The Spartan wood-paneled room is spacious. It has two really hard beds, two lumpy pillows, two halfsize blankets, two thin towels. No TV, no reading lights, no refrigerator. There are electrical outlets. Our room had an air conditioner with remote control. There is wi-fi only in the reception area. Be...
