ROOM FOR RENT I am a Canadian, have been here 12 years and have my Taiwan Residency. I have a fully furnished 3-Bedroom large apartment (total size = 21 Pings…..a ping = 6 feet X 6 feet square approx.) It’s in the Hsimenting area, very near Hsimen MRT Station, Door #1, just a 2 minute walk away. It is not in the louder walking area of the Hsimen area, it is a quieter area on the outer part. I have the apartment and rent the 2 other rooms out. One room is available June 15 (possibly before) The room is 8000nt/month rent and I am asking for a 10 month commitment minimum. You will have access to everything in the home. The apartment has a comfortable balcony off of a large living/dining room, big dining room table, 29” T.V. and DVD. Also included in the living room are 2 sofas….one of which pulls out for a bed for guests and a top of the line treadmill with incline-decline modes. There is a washing machine and the kitchen has a lot of room with a large refrigerator, coffee maker, gas double stove, microwave, rice cooker, oven, toaster and a large water machine so there is no need to buy water if you don’t want to. These items are in the home now and yours to use at anytime. The apartment is fully furnished/ decorated/ painted by me. LIVING IN HSIMENTING HAS EVERYTHING: The apartment is in a very convenient place as it is only a 10 minute walk to Taipei Station, 2 minute walk to a Y.M.C.A. one block away (with swimming pool) and a 10 minute walk to 3 famous places, Longshan Temple, CKS Memorial Hall and 228 Peace Memorial Park. California Gym, the largest gym in Taiwan, is also here and just a 5 minute walk away. It’s also a short walk to both Botanical Gardens and the Youth Park which has an outdoor community swimming pool. Of course if you drive, these places are all very quick to get to. A Wellcome Supermarket and 24-Hour Carrefour Superstore both just 1 block/1 minute walk away!! Also, Hsimenting has all kinds of food/restaurants, coffee shops, clubs, cafes, pubs, KTV’s, MTV’s, and many movie theatres, all just a few minutes walk away from the front door!! And if you know Hsimen, there is shopping, shopping and more shopping!! It’s the place to be !! ROOM: Room is about 100 square feet of space (3 pings) and has a new wall-mounted air conditioner, only a year old. The room is already wired to instantly hook up to the internet ADSL and also cable TV. It includes a bed, computer desk, bookshelf, nightstand and wardrobe closet. The rent is 8000nt/month. Rent is paid monthly on the 15th. Expenses for water, electricity, gas, internet ADSL and cable TV is shared equally between all 3 roommates. The expenses are totaled together and paid every 2 months. The first month’s rent and a 2 month deposit is required (negotiable if a little more time is required). Home installation of landline telephone is your expense and responsibility. Also, if you have no computer and ADSL is not needed, there is no need to pay this expense. The washroom would be shared by you and the other roommate, currently a male teacher from Ireland who has the next room. It is up to you both to maintain the washroom as I do not share it since I have one in my bedroom. I have a website with many pics of the house/room, just go here: On the left side just click: “HOUSE PICS” and room click “ROOM B” The room/apartment makes it a lot easier on anyone, especially new arrivals to Taiwan since there is no need to bother with paperwork/aggravation of hookups with water/power/gas/ADSL/ cable etc. And it is just so easy with the apartment already furnished and the room all ready to be moved into as it already has the bed, wardrobe, shelving, computer desk, air conditioning, ADSL and cable (for TV) already there in the room!! Just move in and no worries!! I must tell you it is much nicer than your typical Chinese apartment/room for rent here. I have fixed it up/maintained it and have been in this place for over 10 years now. A must see place!!! Room/apartment available for viewing anytime. Please contact Ronald 0932009170 englishintaipei@ . Call “AS SOON AS POSSIBLE” if you have any interest at all as I have rented these rooms previously and they went very fast!! They have never been empty. Please call....only email if you want pics first thank you! If you call and there is no answer, I may be teaching so please call again, thanks.
