Miaoli - Olive Tree Minsu 南庄民宿-橄欖樹
Olive tree was our Day 1 Miaoli minsu stay. If you like to know my Nov 2012 itinerary, click here.
Olive tree 橄欖樹 is a minsu in Nanzhuang南庄民宿. This minsu was quite remote, about an hour drive from city area. That was the main purpose - I wanted to be away from city and enjoy fresh air and mountain scenary. My first impression was a warm and lovely wooden house, just like in a fairy tale. There was also a spacious garden outside the wooden house. Some people said that it was like you were in a fairy tale sweet house - what do you think ?
Beside the wooden house was the Purple house (dining area), linked by a wooden bridge. Our rooms was on the 2nd floor of the wooden house. Once you entered the wooden house, there was a reception cum dining area. Behind the reception, there was a staircase that lead to the rooms that we were staying. The boss also had built a new white building behind the wooden house. However, the new rooms was fully booked. The new rooms were more spacious and some with balcony.

Our two rooms.
We had a 4 person bedroom - 2 double bed, also got a small table. See the red curtain - actually is a small dressing area, leading to the washroom. The other room is a 2 person bedroom.
Notice the below picture -a small wooden house, actually it is the room key chain!
The minsu also has a small cafe. The boss gave us the menu so that we can pre-order our dinner and breakfast. Breakfast is inclusive in room rate but not dinner.
I would say that the boss really make an effort to beautify every little corner. Every corner has a surprise ! There were many cute and lovely art crafts - all masterpiece of the young boss !
Below is our dinner set (comes with teapot or drink) and breakfast set - thick toast (can choose different favour - garlic, choco, kaya), hard boiled egg, salad, sweet potato and coffee/tea.
The Purple house was on the 2nd floor. There was a bridge that linked from the main wooden house. Don't miss the window display beneath the purple house !
I like the brick type wall and the display in the cabinet.
Below picture (right 3 pixs) are display from the cabinet.
