B&B: Justlike Villa(喜歡農莊)


There are a growing number of B&Bs all around Hualien nowadays. But Justlike Villa is definitely one of my favorite B&B. Justlike Villa is located in Jian township, a few minutes from Hualien city, and it’s just the perfect place to enjoy some tranquility away from Hualien city. The building is constructed in an “exposed concrete" style. The general design of Justlike Villa is a combination of modern and traditional. The gray walls are adorned with Chinese red couplets, and all rooms have celestial names, and each room has it’s own unique ambiance. Also, the rooms are furnished with French windows, so that you can see the sunlight streaming through the window, and the green coming into your eyes.   In addition, the most impressive part of staying at Justlike Villa is the hospitality of the owners, Mr & Mrs Chang. They welcomed us with their biggest smile, homemade snacks and fresh tea, which immediately made me feel at home. Make sure you’re up early too, as their healthy and homemade breakfast is a feast that you definitely shouldn’t miss.

來自高雄,曾在台北生活十年的洛哥與韓姐,最後帶著一家子落腳於花蓮的吉安鄉,打造了屬於他們的「喜歡農莊」。問他們為什麼選擇了這?韓姐說:「為了能夠在一起。」一句簡單明瞭的話,道出了「喜歡農莊」的初衷及其所賦予這個家的意義。

Mr. and Mrs. Chang

 為什麼取名為「喜歡」?韓姐說:「當家人相處久了,彼此感情便昇華為雲淡風輕,而那就是一種喜歡。」「而我們相信客人之所以選擇這裡,一定也是有喜歡的成分才會來這。」不久,洛哥笑了笑說:「就是喜歡阿,有甚麼不可以!」我想,是他們的知性與率性同時成就了「喜歡」,而對他們來說,「喜歡」的涵義仍是現在進行式。

 「喜歡農莊」稱之為「農莊」,因為洛哥與韓姐希望客人來不只是住民宿,而是體驗在地的農村生活,除了享受農莊裡的自然與恬靜外,更可見他們家活力十足的鴨子們:呆呆與呱呱,悠閒地在農莊內陪你散步。同時,洛哥與韓姐亦會在一旁準備點心與飲品,無論是手沖咖啡或新鮮果汁,用他們的熱情直接溫暖了旅人的味蕾。

 農莊建築本身的設計理念是依照洛哥與韓姐他們的想法,請設計師規劃而實踐的結晶。灰調的清水模外牆巧妙地貼上了中國的紅色春聯,當現代遇上傳統,煞是衝突,卻巧妙妥協、相得益彰。房間並以農業曆法之「節氣」命名,踏進不同房間便能感受到不同節氣的獨特氤氳。此外,每個房間都有一扇落地窗,舒適的休憩空間佐上戶外滿盈的綠,不喜歡?也難。

 感受著洛哥與韓姐對彼此的相知相惜,及一家大小共同為這個家的傾心傾力,看似平淡的農莊生活,對他們而言,不僅多采多姿,亦蘊含著人生中最深、最美好的滋味。因為喜歡,所以選擇了「喜歡」;因為來到了「喜歡」,你可能會更喜歡。
