The apartment is clean and located in the ‘suburb’ of Dali City, Taichung, about 15 mins by bus from the central train station or a 3 min walk to a taxi stand. If you can call before hand, I can either meet you at the train station or HSR (High Speed Rail) or least provide directions for a taxi or meet you if needed. :) I also live at home so I'll always be nearby if you need help at any time during your stay in Taiwan. Finding a taxi is easy or the room has several numbers for you to call. For cat lovers, there are also two lovely cats lying around the living room to play with! :)

Local area is a traditional and safe one. Locals often burn incense to keep away ghosts and children play in the street. Life here is slower and has a happy, warming atmosphere that I really appreciate. While here, please feel free to wander around the local vegetable markets, nearby night markets, temples or get lost down some of Dali's many back roads...

The apartment has Wi-Fi in all the rooms, cable TV and cooking tools if you like to cook. The WIFI information is on a bulletin board in your bedroom. Fruit and mineral water are kept in the kitchen for your stay and with plenty of space to put food you've bought.. If you need anything else, I'll do my best to buy it in. In case of extra guests, there's a sofa bed too.

Please try to check in before 5:30pm if possible, as the door guard will leave before that time and the building door may be closed. If your flight is late, I'll probably be home to meet you and help you come upstairs. Otherwise, just ask the guard at the door to assist you. He's really friendly and been there as long as the building I think!

If you like biking, there's a mountain bike free for use in the apartment. Alternatively, road-worthy mountain bikes can be hired at a nearby Giant Store for use on one of many bike trails around Taichung. There's an excellent ride along the river just through Dali that goes into the mountains nearby...

For hiking, Dakeng isn't too far away and can be reached by taking the Fengyuan bus service. Dakeng offers 10 trails from the infamous 'monkey' trail to the more sedate 'garden' trails - recently renovated! These can all get pretty crowded on the weekend, so week days are best recommended for visiting them.

It was an amazing time in Stephen's place. Even though we didn't get to meet him, he constantly kept communication with us and had a co host help us throughout our journey. We got lost on the first day, due to our own fault but Stephen's directions were very clear and detailed. The house is filled with snacks and water and honestly the best place to stay in our whole Taiwan trip! I really do hope you become a superhost soon because you definitely deserve it!

I stayed with Stephen for 2 weeks and LOVED my stay. The apartment is clean and welcoming with two wonderful cats. Being new to Taiwan, Stephen took the liberty of showing me around and suggesting some lovely places to visit. I felt safe and at home in the apartment. I recommend it to anyone new in the area!

Having spent the last 12 years travelling the world, I'm now settled in Taiwan teaching English, running a small business, learning [traditional] Chinese and tending to two self-absorbed cats! I like hiking, biking and traveling so when I'm not hosting, I try to get away whenever I can.

I'm originally from the United Kingdom (UK). I've had some fantastic experiences while traveling and made some super friends while doing so. I believe we learn from every experience and every person we meet.

Taichung is an awesome location for either taking a breather from the rigors of the travel or exploring the cultural wonders of Central Taiwan. Having been here five years now, I've traveled widely around the isle of Formosa and I'll be happy to provide tips on interesting places to experience while your here.

Above all, whether you want to relax with a good book or movie, or explore the nooks and crannies of this fascinating island, I aim to make your stay here as easy as possible.
