Location of Lowkey B&B
Lowkey is located in Zhutian Village, Fuli Township in Hualien County, on the side of Golden Lily Mountain (Sixty Stone Mountain).Golden Lily Mountain is famous in Taiwan for its fields of citron daylily (Hemerocallis citrina). These golden yellow flowers are in full bloom in August and September of every year. You can view terrace fields while heading up to Lowkey. Lowkey covers an area of 110,000 square feet on gently sloped land and is at an altitude of about 1014 ft. Within the area of Lowkey, we have planted mainly fruit and you can see fireflies between the spring and summer.
As a family, we loving doing handcrafts, such as tables, chairs, covered walkways and so on. We purchase wood so we can turn it into handmade furniture. Our items might not be fancy or luxurious, but they are endowed with lots of our ingenuity and a sense of humor. When we meet travelers who appreciate this kind of atmosphere, our lives are enriched with beauty.
Owner of Lowkey B&B
I was away from my hometown for a long time, working my way up to the position of manager in one of Taiwan’s top corporations. As an office worker, I built our guesthouse, Lowkey, on land which my grandfather had left me. In the beginning, my parents helped with the day-to-day operations of the guesthouse. After I married my wife, who worked as a store manager of Starbucks, we had a cute daughter. Both me and my wife had successful careers, good pay and good positions in the north of Taiwan. However, when Lowkey was in its fifth year, we decided to give up our competitive salaries and hectic life to take over the management of our guesthouse. We wanted to give our family a great healthy environment and live a life full of happiness. The hope of giving our beloved child a more natural environment to grow up in and spending more time with my parents motivated us to move back to my hometown. We know that it will take lots of hard work and that we will face many unexpected challenges, but we think having a career you love with is more interesting than working in an office.
