This was an old residence built in 1972 and was recently transformed into a 1970s style Taiwanese guesthouse. There are a wide variety of rooms to fit different budgets: shared bath, private rooms or suites, or hostel type arrangement.
Want to fix a snack, warm up take-outs or showing off your culinary talents in a full kitchen? Wireless or wired, no time to waste or taking it easy. This big house can take good care of you.
It is the only guesthouse on this quiet street, with a shady walkway leading to an old fort wall ruin and South Gate. Located just a block away from the old town street with lots of eateries and shops. Enjoy the quiet evening with a neighboring church and local residences.

Furnished with wood furniture from Chiang Kai-Shek's martial law era, artwork from South East Asia, the guesthouse gives you an authentic experience to 1970s Taiwan. The only BnB in town that has a large courtyard and a roof top viewing deck. BBQ with the host in the yard, have morning coffee or afternoon tea on the roof top to see the distant Quan Mountain and sunset. It offers more than a room to spend the night.

Prices are per person per night.

Take the Kenting express bus (number 9189) at the Zaoying high speed rail station. The ticket booth is near exit 2. Buy a round trip ticket to Hengchun, cheaper for round trip;-) The bus will let you off at the 7-11 store near a plaza, across the street from Hengchun transit station. The transit station is where you catch the express bus back to Zaoying station.

Walk along the post office opposite 7-11 store to Zhongshan street (the famous old street of Hengchun), turn left on Zhongshan street, take the first small street (no street name whatsoever! Not even on Google map) on the right. Southgate guesthouse is on the left, right before the end of the street.

Located Near

Located in the heart of old Heng Chun town, 2 blocks away from the main Heng Chun transit station where you catch express bus to high speed rail and other major train stations. Hire a taxi or rent a motorcycle (the most popular form of transportation) near the transit station.
