    Ideal location, fantastic view and awesome breakfast”

    Ocean lover homestay is the ideal homestay for a holiday in Hualien. The location is very close , within 5 minutes’ walking distance to Zhongshan Road which houses the popular dongdamen market and many popular recommended eateries . Dongdamen market itself is more spacious and modern compared to other night markets in Taiwan. We were upgraded to a top floor quadruple room with the privilege of having easy and almost private access to the upper deck with full ocean view. Room was big with attached bathroom and very comfortable with 2 queen beds. To top it off , we were served with one of the best breakfast prepared with fresh ingredients and so much heart . An ideal convenient location , fantastic view and awesome breakfast , what else could we ask for ? We would without a doubt highly recommend this place for couples and family with older children, as the stairs may be a factor to consider for the elderly . I must add too that the manager and owner was most friendly and helpful and recommended us the must-eats in Hualien town as well as taking the initiative to help us settle our transportation back to Taipei . Thank you Ocean Lover homestay for a most memorable and sweet experience in Hualien .

    The moment you stepped into this place, you are instantly being treated like a royal. Check in is easy and so is check out. Location is so perfect that you won't go hungry as there are good eateries nearby and the famous night market is only less than 2 mins walk. What makes the stay unforgettable is their service - thoughtful homemade breakfast, immediate assistance to your needs and friendly staff who never gaol to put on a smile whenever they see you. Highly recommended place to start if you're in Hualien (if not minding walking upstairs including carrying your own luggages)

    Well design, close to sea and friendly staff

    The first day we reached the homestay was already quite late afternoon and all of us were hungry. The staff recommended us good food nearby. She lent me her bicycle to town to buy some food. Very nice staff! The interior design of the homestay is very nice. We love the rooftop balcony as we can view the beautiful ocean and enjoy the stars at night. The next day morning we were so lucky that can watch sunrise from the rooftop balcony. For those love ocean should stay here...

    true taiwan homestay style, neat & tidy and great location”

    This is my second time staying here. The first time we had a doubleroom overlooking the ocean. This time we used a 3-bedroom so no such luxury. Location was great, especially that the new night market has opened just 5 min walk away. The breakfast portion seem to have gotten a bit smaller, though still more than enough for an average stomach like myself.

    The stay is considered good. However it's not friendly to huge baggage travelers as there is not lift. Our room is at fourth floor. Another issue was the table fan is filled with thick dust which not really good to those who is allergic. Well, it's fine for us as male travelers. The homestay serve a very good and nutritious home made breakfast. Overall we have an enjoyable stay.

    We loved the warmth of the staff. It made the stay so much cosier than being in a hotel. The artwork and furnishing here made it feel like we walked into a dreamland. The only drawback was a soaked floormat in the toilet when we checked in. That aside, the warmth of the people here and the cosiness of this hideout made us wish we stayed longer. Thumbs up!
