雲也居一休閒農場 Sanyi Reviews
Minsu (Bed and Breakfast) with a view Dec 04, 2012
雲也居一休閒農場 is a bed and breakfast in Taiwan, Miaoli. It is easier to locate the restaurant, known as Mile High Cafe as it is located along the mountain road.
The b&b is located midway between Dahu and Sanyi in Miaoli. It is easier to travel from Sanyi Train station. A cab ride costs about NTD400 as the cab will need to travel on the winding mountain road. Alternatively, ask for transport and confirm the transportation with the hosts first. I was told no transport service is provided however, being hospitable hosts, I was given transport to Sanyi train station on my last day.
Rooms are located at a separate building from the Mile High Cafe, which also act as the reception area. Hosts will drive you down the slope however, as they run a food and beverage business as well, it is not expected of them to constantly drive you down the slope to the accommodation building. As the area is in rural mountainous area, activites after sunset can be limited. Check with the hosts on transport or activities and make arrangements beforehand. Bring a torch and umbrella if you are expecting to walk down the slope to the rooms at night.
The hosts are very friendly. The restaurant they run serve a wide variety of ginger-related dishes which they invented. If you bring your own toiletries, including toilets, you can exchange a green token everyday for a complimentary afternoon tea with snack. Unfortunately, there are no discounts for staying guests, so if you are on a budget, you can get food from other restaurants or cafe during your day excursions. The cheapest beverage cost NTD90.
The hosts own the land and they have several farms. If you are into agricultural, it is a good trip to learn from the hosts, and even have a try in weeding etc. A note: hosts speak little English.
The resident dogs are friendly and will accompany you on the walk up to the cafe. They may also sleep outside your doors!
If you do not know where to go in Miaoli, the hosts can help you with the intinerary and make arrangement for driver. However, if you are looking for a guide, then it would be good to let the host know of your needs beforehand.
Overall good stay with clean and warm bed and shower. Nice food and hospitable hosts. Getting there could be tricky but once you reach the b&b, the host is your best reliance on every thing else.
