A truly atmospheric restored historic mansion, with the most enthusiastic hostsWe stayed at the this property between 19 - 22 May 2018. The building is a historic mansion of the type called a 'yang lou' (洋樓), built probably around the early 1920s. These were mansions and villas built by Kinmen natives who had migrated to Southeast Asia (principally, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines) to seek their fortunes. The successful ones remitted money home to erect mansions and villas like these between the 1910s and the 1930s: many examples of this kind of buildings still dot Kinmen. This particular example has been lovingly and sensitively restored - it is a delight to explore, and if history is your kind of thing, you will absolutely love this. History aside, it has all the necessary mod-cons: free fast wifi, ample hot water showers, and air-conditioning (or you could just opt for fresh air by throwing open the windows). The hosts Amber and Jack have filled the rooms and the shared communal areas with all sorts of delightful and quirky objects. Jack is a good cook: we looked forward every morning to the breakfast of native Kinmenese cuisine. We spent two full days exploring the major sights of Kinmen, and our main regret that we didn't have time for some of the places that we would have also wanted to visit (for example, Little Kinmen Island). A stay of perhaps 3 to 5 full days would probably have been ideal - there are certainly enough sights to fill a full five days. Amber arranged the transport for us - there is also the option of going around on bicycle, or simply taking walks around the neighbourhood. Taxi rides into one of the towns are easily arranged, and it a simple matter to catch one of the many taxis cruising around in the towns to get back to the B&B. Thanks to Amber and Jack, we had a wonderful holiday. This is definitely one of those places that we will want to go back to when we need a break!
Amazing Experience. Coolest Place to Stay on Kinmen!这个地方太好了。主人都非常热情！我第一次到金门玩就偶见了这个民俗但是没有时间住。我这次去金门特意地跑过去住北山羊玩意。Amber 和 Jack 十分了解金门的旅游业和经典。他们推荐了好几个我自己绝对找不到的地方。旅游书上也看不到！吃的玩的他们都有推荐的。他们的宾客服务这一块做得很到位！房间的床很舒服，我死睡，起不来。客栈也很安静，周围都是古老的建筑。 Amber and Jack are incredible hosts. I stayed here on my second trip to Kinmen. The guesthouse is located in Historic Guningtou on the northwest part of the island. The surrounding is incredible if you are looking for a serene and beautiful spot to relax and enjoy historic buildings. The Owners are highly knowledgeable about the Island and can help you organize whatever it is you want to do. They gave me many great suggestions on things to do that I did not know about and were not available in guidebooks. They can even make you a great handpour coffee! Look at the pictures to see how great the building itself is. The beds are big and very comfortable and the property is quiet at night. I recommend renting a bicycle or e-scooter when you go out there so you can get out and explore. All in all, these was one of the best weekend getaways I have had in a long time.
