A home-styled boutique B&B in Sun Moon Lake, New DORIS HOME is a cat-theme guesthouse with few friendly cats. Only 5 minutes walking distance to Shuishe Visitor Center, 10 minutes walking distance to Shuishe Pier (lake side), DORIS HOME not only offers you a convenient location, but also provides a relaxing place and comfortable rooms.
New DORIS HOME was moved in from January 2017 (and old one was opened from 2005). With the sense of design, you may take a nap after a nice lakeside stroll or biking, sit on the sofa sipping coffee and locally produced black tea, or simply chill out with cats.
This property is hidden in a small lane with cat signs. If you can’t find out this secret location, please feel free to call the property or ask a local resident. Want to have a cozy easy vacation in Sun Moon Lake? DORIS HOME is a good choice to stay.

5 star hotel comparable homestay”
They say you can’t find anything that is valued for money these days.. DORIS home is the exception. They have 4 cats roaming around the house, BUT, you would not expect the entire place to be so clean. Room design is really well done, modern and you won’t feel it’s like a hotel room; you’ll feel right at home. Toilet is well furnished, and is really 5 star hotel-class comparable. They provide breakfast, and you would not want to miss it. It’s a day-by-day menu, so I was served omu-style egg with potato salad and sauteed vege sides and with a choice of coffee, tea or soy milk. The last but the best part is, the hospitality of DORIS home. As a traveller, I usually feel the need to research or navigate my way, but when I arrived, I was well-received by Ah-Long, and he fill me in on the homestay and the island information together with his recommendation on the activities to do there. Pretty good huh, only DORIS home provide it so far, and far better than staying at ANY hotel.
Even fussy parents loved it”
the place and the hospitality just makes you wonder why have I not been here sooner. just hope that the toilet roll holder will be replaced the next time we are back.... it was a struggle to keep the toilet roll from dropping out. also, might want to do something about the wooden overhanging box up just outside elevator on ground floor. as that passage is very narrow, the box up is quite hazardous for an average height person coming out of the elevator. other than that, love love love the place!
Love staying here”
Greg was super friendly and helpful, so as all staff. We were upgraded from a standard room to a bigger room with a great view. The room was clean, modern and bright. Breakfast was light yet delicious. It was served right after getting down the stairs, so it was fresh and warm. Great breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay here.
Great host and lovely cats”
Well we loved cats hence we made this choice to stay in Doris Home. A totally unique and home feeling. Host was very friendly and hospitable. Host upgraded us to a bigger room at no charge. Our stay: Room was clean and spacious. Bathroom was fully equipped. Breakfast cooked by the auntie was yummy and healthy. There was also hot fresh soya served together. Self service to the drinks and filter hot water at their pantry. Location wise, it is walk-able distance about 10mins to the food, shopping, starbucks and port. Cat were free to roam around the hotel and our room. One slpt in our room during the afternoon. Overall we love Sun Moon Lake and planning to be back for Cherry Blossom season. Of course, my son kept pestering me to be back to Doris Home.
Best hostel ever!”
A great place to stay in sun lake moon. The whole building is brand new with wonderful interior design. Only about 8mins walk from pier and business district and you can get everything you need. Hosts are nice and helpful and dont miss the great breakfast. 10/10 for cat lovers as the cats here are so cute! You may find them wandering the corridor, sleeping in the lobby and they may even try to sneak in to the room (which is great). The only flaw will be the rather short bed, it may be a struggle for tall guys. We only stayes for one night and thats far from enough. Definitely will come back again.
Lovely cats and friendly people ”
General speaking, everything is good. However, I'm not sure what happen to the AC. It has musty smell. So we decided not to turn on the AC. It's not so hot that day. So it doesn't bother us that much. I would like to recommend for those who don't care about smell.
The Best Hotel I have stay in Taiwan”
The woner was so nice and helpful, he will introduce the room and all facilities to you and also their cats. He will let you know some information about the Sun Moon Lake and give you some idea where to eat and what activities you can join. Room are sooo nice that you will see many cats decoration and feel cozy. I am not a cat lover but you will feel that you don't want yo leave this place.
Hi Tiffany, Thank you so much for your awesome review and it was too good to us. We will try our really hard to reach the "best hotel" you mentioned and hope we could be better and better and make everyone enjoy their stay in this cat-theme b&b. Next time if you don't want to leave, please stay longer and spend more time in this beautiful lake and also our small house. Many thanks Tiffany and we hope to see you again! ^_^ BR, Greg@DORIS HOME
The most enjoyable BnB we’ve ever stayed in!”
Doris Home is definitely the most professionally run BnB we have stayed. The facilities, appliances and interior design are all top-notch. There were so many things, big or small, that tell the tastefulness of the owner and the thoughtfulness of the staff. Amongst all the things that made us decide to extend our stay by one more night, my 18 months old daughter was so happy befriending the cats and was totally thrilled to discover all the (cat-related) details the owner has carefully crafted for the comfort of the cats and the amusement of the guests. W e will definitely return!
Hi Jamie, That is our pleasure to have you over and so happy to get your perfect rating. We are flattered with your review and we hope everyone could enjoy this place like you. We will try our best to keep this service and hope to provide a even better one when you return next time. See you! ^_^ BR, Greg@DORIS HOME
Love it here”
I really have a great time here with my sister. Staff they are really good and so kind and especially we can communicate in English very well. And walk only 3 minutes to the visitor center or bus station. And for cat person, you' ve gotta love here so much. Airry & Mor Thailand
Hi Airry & Mor, Thank you very much for giving us a good review. We also had a good time receiving you and your sister here. Hope you enjoyed the upgraded room with bigger space. If you have a chance to come to Sun Moon Lake again, please come back and let's have a good time again. ^_^ Greg@DORIS HOME
Excellent location next shuishe visitor centre”
Room design and facilities were nice. Have you a nice happy feeling to stay...Owner was super, explaining the locations and visiting plans for Sun moon lake. You can even use their bike for free to cycle round instead of renting from shops! Breakfast was excellent. You can feel the owner's thought in putting together a nice breakfast for their guests. You can have free coffee, tea and fruits during your stay.
Dear Hwee, Thank you very much for leaving a great review to us. We are flattered that you could feel that we try very hard to make everyone enjoying this environment. It's so nice that you like our design and our breakfast. In this year, we just moved to a new house which is not too far from the one you stayed. Hope we have a chance to provide our new service one day. Many thanks. ^_^
It was a wonderful experience stay, with the great hotel environment, convenient location and lots restaurants near by, also it is near by the public transportation station. The most memorable for me is the passionate house keeper and his kindest family, as a solo traveler, it is so warm that to be felt as a family during temporary stay.
Dear Mei, Thank you very much for your review on 2015. Agoda just released the replying option of the owner so that we could write about our appreciation to you. 10 is the highest rate and we feel very flattered that you gave us a high recommendation. Since we just moved to a new house with more space, you could check out our new property and it will be great if we could receive you again when you visit Sun Moon Lake next time. You could feel the warmness of local people again and be a SMLer once more. ^_^

Lovely Place with great location and friendly host!”
This could be one of the best places i've stayed for my Taiwan trip. Location was not too far from bus stop, maybe 6 mins walk. Overall - Doris Home is quaint and quiet. The host was friendly and gave us a few quick tips of where to eat and walk for sight seeing. There's a total of 05 cute cats always hanging around the lobby area. Breakfast was prepared freshly in the morning, and it's almost like having breakfast at the comfort of your home! Room was very clean and spacious! Regret didn't stay for another day! They were also very kind to allow us to check out a little later (maybe 30 mins) as we set off late in the morning for the cycling track. Visit Sun Moon lake and see their sunset, it's beautiful!
