One Breathtaking Panorama
Located on the old street of Jiufen, among the scenery of rustic landscapes, the buildings scattered on the steep mountains with a mix-match of highs and lows, with layer unravelling upon layer. After the sun sets, the city itself becomes even more captivating against the night sky, reminding us of the old streets of Lijiang in Jiangnan—a peaceful oasis hidden in the hustle and bustle. With the promising location overlooking a breathtaking view and the exemplary amenities, Something Easy provides its guests with a comforting living experience. From the high-quality construction materials to the clean-lined interior, the guest house’s owner, Min Liu, made sure every room is designed with its own unique style—a layout aesthetics of modernity revealing her distinctive taste in beauty.
Savor the Meaning of Life
The beauty of time is not defined by a matter of milestones, but moments—moments in which the vanity fair simply becomes bygones. Closing around dinner time, the old streets of Jiufen usually call it a day by 7 P.M which is why Min decides to make the mini bar a 24 hour service. Bring your late night snacks to the rooftop balcony while taking in the awe-inspiring night view of the old town, share with your companion the hopes, the dreams, the secrets. During our interview, she explains her emphasis on the living quality of the guest house and the implementation of sustainability. Not only does Something Easy use Bulnesia sarmientoi flooring and Simmons foam mattresses, but the bathroom accessories are also reusable and biodegradable—platycodon toothbrush, combs and razors made of Plastarch Material. Meanwhile, the nightstands are all installed with Bluetooth speakers that connect to your phone, and bathroom heaters and washlets prepared to bring a luxurious but warming experience for the guests.
Reminiscing Old Town Memories
So why not explore the nostalgic serenity of A City of Sadness and step into the world of Spirited Away? Listen, to the music of life, tunes of bustling peculiarity. Wave goodbye to the past and welcome a collective exuberance into our open arms. A handicraft-enthusiast with exceptional taste, Min designed a collection of postcards printed with traditional, amorous illustrations. The mailing service is completely free of charge, simply because she wishes that her guests can jot down their feelings with each brushstroke and send them to their loved ones—like a promise to find that genuine happiness encapsulated in each handwritten postcard. Feel the brisk night air’s tickle as you sit in the Golden Bar, the blue hour hanging above the old-fashioned streets, the sound of wind chimes echoing in the air. Sitting on the old street of Jiufen, it serves original, Taiwan-inspired cocktails and an exclusive selection of locally crafted beer. A landscape bar with tea-themed drinks, the Golden Bar aspires to pass on the spirit of Taiwanese culture amidst Jiufen. As the night gets dark, the moon hangs lower and lower, one begins to wonder: perhaps Something Easy can become a medium, this platform to share the aesthetics of living. With a tea cocktail in hand, enjoy the beauty of the awe-inspiring nature—the best moment is thus created.
