About the Homestay
Hi! We're a little family, a couple with a little girl (cute & funny =D). We're glad to share the Taiwanese culture with you! :)
Our community environment is so good and quiet. It's located in a new building with 24-hour security. We live in a 5 floors elevator building at 2nd floor, with a great view of the garden so it’s nice and bright. We have a master room with 2 beds (ensuite within the room), a nice double room (queen-size bed) and a cozy room with single bed. Of course with a guest bathroom with shower. You are more than welcome to use the kitchen. We love cooking together. We like to cook in different culture style.
The Huzhou MRT (Taipei subway system) station, supermarket and 24hrs 7-11 convenient are within 10 mins walking distance. There's a bus stop 1 min walk from the house. There are many buses that will take you to many places around. There's also the direct bus to/from the Songshan airport.
We will treat you like a family, and hope to be treated likewise. If you stay here for a few days, we can go to the nearby market together to get fresh local foods. We would love to share information about places to eat out or where to buy. We don't keep any pets. We love showing hidden places who are looking for more unique and less known spots around Taipei. So we guess you would like to hear our helpful tips, and guiding.
We really hope to meet YOU soon in Taiwan! :)

Because of the COVID19 outbreak in HK, we could not but arrange our teenage son to continue his stay in TW during term break. It was a last minute decision, but we were lucky to have found the Adam family. The family is caring and loving, and they took our kid with them for some family sightseeing. Our minds were at ease knowing that he was in good hand. It is so much more than sharing a flat. Thank you very much, and hope that we can meet in future.
Adam and Eve are the nicest and kindest people on Earth! When they say they'll treat you like family, they really treat you like family. They made sure my stay was pleasant and enjoyable, attending to all my logistic needs in the house. They always welcomed me to hang out with them in the common areas like another family member. They took lots of time to take me around to try super delicious Taiwanese dishes and visit beautiful places in Taiwan whenever they have time. They are the most generous people too! The place is always nice and clean, and Dolphin is a wonderful kid. I was very lucky to have found them and stayed with them, which made my Taipei experience really unique and unforgettable. Thank you so much, Adam, Eve and Dolphin!
Adam, Eve, and Dolphin are the sweetest family and a pleasure to live with. They love hosting people and enjoy showing amazing places in Taipei. They also went out of their way to help with any problems, whether helping me acquire a sim card or locate a sheet for sleeping (Taiwan summers are hot). I highly recommend staying with them.
The area is not very close to the city center, but the mrt station is very close . In Neihu itself you can find 7-11, atm machines , bakeries and so on. The place is lovely and above all - a charming family. Made my first days in Taiwan easier and even more intersting. Thank you Adam, Eve and Dolphin.
Adam, Eve and Dolphin were the most amazing hosts during my recent 5 week stay in Taipei. I chose to stay with them as I was studying Mandarin at a local language school and I was wanting to have an authentic experience that gave me some insight into the Taiwanese way of life. This homestay exceeded my expectations as my host family not only took me sightseeing in their free time but also generously introduced me to their culture and the traditional food of Taiwan. I highly recommend little family as they are the most genuine, honest and kind people. Thank you so much for having me.
‘A little family’ made my stay in Taipei relaxing, fun and adventurous at the same time! They are so kind and made a lot of effort to ensure I got the best experience possible - including eating local delicacies (I am vegan) all the while helping me out at every possible occasion. I was a bit worried about the location beforehand, but the bus is so easy to get to the mrt. I highly recommend staying here to anyone visiting Taipei looking for a truly local, warm welcome :)
The Little Family is the most kind, helpful and lovely family I've ever seen! I didnt expect so a wonderful stay!
They show me many places in the city and spent time with me. And I had the fantastic possibility to try food and typical things from Taiwan. Such things that we cannot find in a book guide.
And very important, dont worry if on the map you see the home it's not in the city center, dont hesitate to book here cause it's really a few steps from MRT or bus stop. Really, from this point you can be very easily and quickly everywhere in Taipei. And it's a very safe area even in the night.
I really recommend this homestay! And I'm missing you already Eve, Adam and the sweet Dolphin :) Hope to see you soon again in your beautiful city!
Eve, Aidan and Dolhpin were excellent hosts. They helped me figure out how to get around using public transit during my homestay. They helped me figure out the bus system and the mrt (rail system) routes so that I could go around independently and enjoy my time in Taipei. They provided me a safe, clean and quite room in their flat which had gated access in a nice neighborhood. I spent a number of days out late and felt very safe walking back and forth from the local shops to the location of the homestay. Most of all, they helped me form so many new memories in Taiwan on my last day when they took me around the entire day showing me the local attractions such as the Bishanyan temple, dragon bone bridge, local organic farm, the neihu incineration plant (if you think the view from Taipei 101 is beautiful, wait till you visit this observation point, you will be blown away by your viewing point), shilin night market and my absolute favorite, the spectacular volcanic site that gives rise to the Beitou hot springs. I totally did not expect them to take me around all day and they definitely did not need to take me around at all but they did it out of the kidness of their hearts and I was so elated by this experience. I was a solo female traveler for this part of my trip and they made me feel safe and comfortable during the time that I spent with them. I know for a fact that when I go back to Taiwan with my husband and I will be staying with the little family again.
I could not have asked for a better host family for my first visit to Taipei. Adam, Eve and Dolphin were all wonderful company and I really appreciate them taking me to places that I never would have found by myself. I would wholeheartedly recommend “A Little Family” to anyone - especially becuse their knowledge of where to find delicious local cuisine is particularly good!
Eve, Adam and their lovely daughter Dolphin are probably the most charming, helpful and considerate people I have ever met. The two other Homestay guests with me during my stay agree. That is saying something, as in my experience Homestay hosts are all lovely people. My Taipei visit was infinitely more enjoyable and productive thanks to them - and they have become very good friends in a very short time.
I already miss them badly and am planning my next visit.
