  • It was a great place to stay! Pica and David was helpful to our questions. I would recommend this place to stay if you are visiting Taipei.

    April 2014
  • It was my first time using airbnb and it was a pleasant experience. Pica and her husband David, along with their lovely kids Chelsea & Joy welcomed us upon arrival. They gave us a very detailed tour of the facilities within the building and explained in detail how to get around the Jing An area. The location is conveniently right on top of the MRT stop on a high floor, with various local eats, drugstore (Watsons) and grocery store (Carrefour) right across the street. Communications was quick via email and AirBnB from checkin till checkout. Gave advance notice of any forseeable issues, and all were addresed in a timely manner.

    Their apartment was clean, cozy and compact. Again, the place was just above the MRT station and the bus station was located in front of the building. Everything was just a hop and skip away from everything in Taipei. My stay was from the end of March till the first week of April. There were various windows within the apartment, with good Feng Shui, so ventilation and air circulation was nice, natural and windy. A rarety for congested urban Taipei. Great AirBnb stay all around. Kudos to David & Pica! :)

  • We stayed for 6 Nights at Picas place. We are a family with two little kids and pica was so nice and helpful to provide a high hair and even some toys for our girls. We loved the place, it was big enough for us. The tatami room is really cosy and neat. Also the area is vey nice. We like staying in a non tourist neighborhood and with a great supermarket, a travel agency, lots of food places and the metro nearby we had everything we needed. Again, pica and her husband were great hosts! Easy to communicate with, very helpful with everything, it as great meeting them,

  • Our family visited Taipei for two weeks in Feb/Mar, 2014 and stayed at the Skyview Boutique. The location was convenient for travelling around Taipei as our main source of transportation were metro and taxi. We used the laundry washer/dryer quite a lot since we travelled with an 8 month old. There was enough counter space to air dry baby bottles and prepare baby food in the kitchen. We didn't bring a baby playpen so the 3 of us slept in the tatami room which was spacious enough but a bit hard for us even with the futons provided (just personal preference). It got chilly a couple of nights we were there so if you plan to visit when it's under 20 degrees celcius, bring thicker pjs. My husband only packed short sleeves and suffered those two nights. Overall, the apartment was convenient and the hosts were friendly and helpful.

  • I guess this place could be great in summer - good location (right next to MTR, across the street from Airport bus), good amenities and Pica and David are very helpful and kind. However, we fell on a bad weather, very cold and with a baby boy it wasn't too pleasant. There is no heating in the apartment, and in the Tatami room it is very cold (some air enters from the windows even when shut). After 2 sleepless nights trying to cover our child (as he rolls over a lot and uncover himself), we moved him to the main bedroom. According to Pica heaters (even electric?) are illegal in Taiwan due to accidents, so if you come in winter with a kid, I suggest finding a place with A/C that also heats, or stay on a lower level. Again, this was the only bad thing, the rest is great about this apartment and if the weather was better i'm sure we would have enjoyed it very much.

    Response from Pica:

    Itay visited Taipei during the week when the polar pig hit the Eastern Asia. This was a very unusual condition in Taipei – never happened in the past 30 years.*
    *Itay requested me to provide a heater in the bedroom for him, an appliance that was not included in my listing; an appliance that I do not have at my home, either. *
    * We supported Itay based on what we could. We introduced him how to operate the built-in heater in the bathroom; provided extra beddings and blankets for him; showed him the places to buy good quality winter clothes.*
    *There is no specific law in Taiwan that regulates using electric heaters. Itay might misunderstand our concerns about having a heater in the bedroom: Every year, there have been severe fire accidents in Taiwan, resulting from
    malfunction of the heaters.*
    * Our guests’ safety is our top priority. We are doing research to identify appropriate/quality heaters for the next winter.

  • Pica and Tom are so kind and considerate,went out their ways to make everything convenient for us!the apartment is fine designed and decorated exactly like a cozy and beautiful home, my family had a very good night sleep, enjoyed be window view and all the shops and restaurants in the neighborhood!i highly recommend Pica's apartment for visitors to Taipei , especially those need to travel by metro
