Very convenient location next to the metro. Quiet and clean apartment with a warm shower. Comfortable bed and unique layout. What more could you need?

Nice apartment close to the MRT and to the Shilin Markets. Coffee shops and bakery just around the corner, ATMs close. Bike hire just over the road. Hosts very helpful and quick to respond to questions. On time to meet us and help back to the airport. A good spot to stay.

There was a organic shop which sold a small variety of (delicious) food for breakfast which was convenient for a vegan family member. The location was exceeding expectations as it was directly opposite Exit 2 of JianTan Station. Even though it was very close to the MRT, there were hardly much noise that disturbed us during our stay. There were other food places that including 2 bakeries/cafes that were just around the corner as well as 2 value-for-money steamboat restaurants at the back which opens till quite late (incld free flow drinks, sauce and ice cream). Macdonalds and other convenient stores were located a few streets behind. The famous ShiLin Night markets was located a stone's throw away just down one street which was amazing because you could place your shopping bags in the apartment before heading down to the market for round 2. However, much is left desired as the apartment could have been well maintained. It was slightly dissapointing to realise that some of the items like the wet tissue was not refilled and the empty container was left there. The room was also slightly dusty and the wooden floors creaked a little. The light bulbs also needed a change as the kitchen was very dark. While there were 2 fridges, they needed to be de-odourised as they smelled pretty odd hence we were hestitant to make use of them. One important thing to note is that all showering/washing should cease after 12am as neighbours are sensitive to the loud running water noise. I wished that the owners could take a little more initiative to maintain the supplies in the apartment like toilet paper etc instead of having to be requested for. Otherwise, it was a lovely stay in Taiwan

Samantha was a great host. Very quick to provide assistance when needed. It was an excellent location as described by other reviewers. The MRT is literally across the street. The place was spacious for 3 adults and 2 children. The only concern we had was the bathroom had water leaks from the side of the walls and it causes the floor to be wet. Other than that, we were well taken care for by Samantha and had an enjoyable stay. Again, it was a great location!

This is a great, clean and comfortable apartment that is very conveniently located. Jackie was very accommodating with adjusting our check in and out times to meet our travel needs. The building is secure and close to restaurants, bakeries and the Shilin Night market plus it's located across from the MRT station. There is some street noise at night in the bedroom so I recommend bringing ear plugs if you are not accustomed to city noise. Highly recommended!

My 3 other friends and I stayed here for 3 nights and everything was really nice. -Location-wise: Very convenient! 1-2mins walk from Jiantan Station and 5-7mins to Shilin Night market. There was a McDonalds and Watsons ~5mins away too. -Apartment: Very cosy. There was a queen sized bed, 1 single bed and 1 sofa bed provided for us. Might be a bit small for a group of 5 with medium to big sized luggage but it was just nice for my group of 4 with small-medium sized luggage. Hot water for showering was provided but just note to not shower after 1 am as it might wake her neighbour up/ if you really need to shower, to close the door softly. It might be a bit noisy in the morning ~8-9am when there is traffic downstairs. -Hosts: Sam met us at the entrance of her apartment and gave us a brief run-through around the apartment. She made sure to answer all our questions before leaving. She was really accommodating with our check-in time (we couldn't confirm what time we would reach Taipei and informed her rather late but she was really understanding). -Shilin Night Market: Many many food stalls, accessory and clothing shops, sports apparels outlets as well as games stalls. To us, the prices here are slightly cheaper than Ximending. The locals were really nice to us too - more free beef and more free tries for games when asked nicely. Will definitely stay here again if i ever go back to Taipei! Thank you Sam (:

My hosting style:
I personally use Airbnb when I travel, and I adore Airbnb that it allows us to live in interesting spaces instead of standard hotel rooms. So when I am being a host, I take cleanliness very seriously, all the sheets/covers are changed every time a guest checks out, always. And we always send the old sheets/covers to laundry service. I would expect that when I travel using Airbnb, so I would do the same for my guests.

I always welcome families with children, I have a 4 year old girl myself, so I have a lot of baby gears I can lend to you free of costs, Children under 24 months are free of charge too. :)

About myself:
Thanks for stopping by! I love what I do. Creating nice space for travelers is my creative outlet – an opportunity to turn inward reflection into outward expression.

I used to be a children's book illustrator, traveled much for my career. And I've had great experiences with Airbnb and made several friends along the way. In addition to art, I love wellbeing and nature which you will see by staying in my apartments.

Through this experience and work I do everyday, it liberates my passion for travel, since I am now having a 4 year-old girl, I don't travel as much as I used to. Thank you to everyone who has wandered into this corner. To those I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting, I invite you to join me on this journey with open arms.

I like my guests to be comfortable and feel at home. I try to go above and beyond to make your stay as safe and comfortable as possible while giving you your privacy. I will gladly give you suggestions of things to do in Taipei and in the neighborhood.
