Please keep the house clean.
Please empty the small trashcans inside everyday, into the yellow big trashcan right outside the gate.
We know the sofa has some spots - please try to avoid making new ones...
Nathan's house is wonderful! We stayed there a couple of days with our two little kids and after travelling a while it felt like paradise to stay in a "real home". For a family the house is perfect, toys, a small garden, fully kitchen equipment. We also liked the neighborhood since it is not located directly in the city of Kaohsiung it was nice to experience what a residential area feels like. To walk to the metro is about 10-15 minutes and 5-6 stops will take you to Kaohsiung. Nathan was very generous and helpful.
Nathan was extremely helpful and easy to reach. He sent me detailed maps and nothing was left out!
The house was a tiny bit hard to find if you didn't know where you were going, but totally worth it once you get there. It was gorgeous, relaxing, and I really got to relax.
