The place worked out perfect for us. Samantha met us at the place despite a bad flight arrival time. The location was perfect for us, very close to NTU (where I had business) and a roughly 5 minute walk to the Taipei power metro station. The neighborhood has lots of little restaurants and shops so it was quite convenient and fun.
The pictures of the place are really very accurate. The shower is "Taiwanese-style" - meaning the entire bathroom gets wet (a little weird for Americans but very typical and worked out fine). In the past we have stayed in urban apartments and have had problems with noise. The precise location of this apartment is not immediately near any noisy stores, and it is very quiet inside for sleeping. So we were very happy with this.
Overall, if I returned to Taiwan I would be very likely to attempt to re-book this same place.
Jackie was an amazing host. She was able to clarify any discrepancies in regards to getting to the location. Not only that she gave us a overview of the surrounding areas. She also even helped us with parts of our itinerary. The apartment is well equipped and clean. It is conveniently located and has all the necessary amenities for your stay to be comfortable.
Samantha is super helpful when I forgot to bring my keys. She met up with me in the middle of the night to bring me the spare keys. She also provided extra towels and bed sheets just a few hours later after we conveyed our needs. The building is a bit old, but location is superb. We really enjoyed our quiet stay in this neighbourhood.
Samantha was so kind. This place was not the original place we asked for. Due to the typhoon that came through Taipei 9 days ago, the place we requested got damaged and Samantha promptly made arrangements for us to stay at her other place. I appreciated it greatly. I cannot imagine looking for a place to stay at the last minute. This place was nice. Beside the bathroom (it had a Taiwanese style bathroom) that we weren't used to, everything else was very clean and nice. The place was close to many tea shops, eateries, and bookstores. The bus stops and subway was about 5 to 8 minutes away. We only stayed for one night but hoped we could stay a few days longer.
This is my 2nd time renting from Samantha. I did so because she is trustworthy, communicates well, and keeps her properties clean, modern, and comfortable. I will most definitely book one of her properties the next time my family travels to Taipei.
Central Lush 2BR apt @ Guting is an excellent property. We stayed here for 1 month because of its proximity to National Taiwan Normal University (aka Shida, 师大) , which is only a leisurely 15 minute walk away. There are places along the way to eat, buy fruit, and shop, especially since you will encounter the ShiDa Night Market on the way there and back. Ideal!
However, this apartment is even closer to National Taiwan University (台大), literally just a stone's throw away. Despite all the students, this place is tucked into a quiet neighborhood. But once you go a block in any direction, there are a diverse range of food options - plenty of cafes, pizza, burgers, middle eastern food, Burmese food, Italian food, and numerous Chinese eateries. And because it's geared to students, food is extremely affordable. Around the corner are many hair salons as well as large and small new and used bookstores.
The MRT is about a 5-10 minute walk to the TaiPower Station, and there are many bus stops as well.
We came in summer and got to experience Taiwan's heat, humidity, and typhoons. The apartment has 3 air conditioning units that worked wonderfully! The washing machine came in handy - and you can hang your clothes dry on the little patio.
Thank you again Samantha! You'll probably hear from us again.
