We have been Airbnb certified Superhosts for many years. Recently airbnb changed their superhost policy to include # of check-outs. This is now difficult to qualify for when you have long-term guests (which we really enjoy). So check out our reviews : )

We still strive to provide a clean, safe and welcoming environment with a private Bedroom & Bathroom in our artsy & green home. The price includes breakfast foods. We are always happy to share local tips or leave you to explore.

Thanks for your kind response, Sheril : ) We had so much fun meeting you both, and your cousin Sally. Getting to know people like you and Anson is what makes hosting on airbnb so rewarding. And it is a bonus that we learned more about the Taiwanese culture -- all from our home ; ) All the best, and let's stay in touch.
