The Summer Rock Villa 夏洛克民宿 (www.summerock.com) is situated in Ji’an town, which is not too far from the hualien city. If you love nature and serenity, you will definitely love Summer Rock Villa !
This is a beautiful lodge surrounded with mountain and lake view, and even outdoor seating area. Isn’t this beautiful ? This was taken on the next sunny morning.
We reached Summer Rock villa in the late afternoon. Although it was a cloudy and gloomy day but I was captivated by the beautiful landscape (5000 sq metre) !
The two storey lodging has a few room types, the ground level are the 2 person room, while the 2nd level are the 3 person and 4 person rooms.
Here’s the reception cum breakfast area – Summer Rock Café ! Also the entrance to the 2nd storey rooms.
After check-in, we were brought to our rooms.
The 3 person room is located on the 2nd floor. The room is spacious with a queen bed and a single bed, with balcony that offers the mountain and lake view. There’s even an air purifier with rosemary essential oil – really relaxing !
Bathroom with bathtub and shower installed.
This 2 person room is located on the ground level with high ceiling room and a large king size canopy bed with wooden furnishing ! All the necessary amenities are provided, plus the added surprise of premium quality shower and hair-care products – L’occitane.
The next morning, we had our breakfast at the Summer Rock Cafe.
The place has an industrial chic décor with handmade wooden tables and chairs, red brick wall and even a white piano.
Guess the best spot is the window seat where you can view the scenery !
The breakfast starts from 830 to 10am and the menu is written clearly on the blackboard, either beef or pork burger set with cappuccino/latte/tea/orange.
The burger set comes with 2 heart shape eggs, bacon and salad – yummy!
After our breakfast, it’s time for ducks feeding and we really enjoyed feeding the ducks !
If you have kids, the owner will even invite the kids to catch fish and shrimp in the lake ! There are even bicycles to cycle.
The weather was really beautiful and we had lots of good pictures ! The owner even told us the best spot to take pictures !
Magnificent lake view – you can even see the reflection a sunny day !
The owners are hospitable and really take care of the guests’ needs. I have overheard them suggesting dinner places to guests. The hualien night market isn’t too far away, about 15-20 mins drive.
Summer Rock Villa is a conducive place for a getaway from the hectic city life ! It’s worth to stay there for 2 nights to enjoy the nature and recharging your batteries with refreshing energy !
Little nice gesture like turning on the air purifier before check-in really make the stay an enjoyable one ! The recreational offerings like cycling, feeding duck, catching fish and shrimps ensures that your kids have plenty of activities to do during the stay. Moreover, the location is not too far from the Hualien city ! You will find sheer tranquillity in Summer Rock and it’s the perfect setting for a relax and revitalising stay !
