Sunlight Falling through Trees in a Balmy Residence

Driving away from downtown Tainan to Anping, the traffic gets lighter as the road becomes wider, even the sunlight seems to be more calming as well. Turning into an alley flanked by townhouses, a string of red lanterns is hung high till the alley end. A gray building stands on the corner, its plain exterior walls have a touch of warmth, while branches of trees stretch out from the second floor toward the blue sky, as if telling the genial daily stories of Anping. Tree Whispering Residence presents you with the ever-warmth mansion with Japanese ambience.

 

 

Koi fish plays with daylight in burbling water

Open the door, you step into the lobby with slippers on, feeling a burst of coolness. Stylish beige floor tiles extend horizontally as fair-faced concrete walls develop vertically. Pale timber is incorporated into the wall panels with lights lit up like the hostess Mia’s smile, sending a sense of warmth into the space and putting a smile on your face as well.

 

Following the gurgling sound of water to the corridor beside the lobby, the sunlight floods in the atrium while koi fish swims in the pool by the corridor. Facing up, some branches are hung below the skylight against the blue sky. The well-equipped open kitchen and large island countertop on the side are decorated with ceramic pieces made by a renowned ceramicist, adding a domestic feel to the space. In the afternoon, the sweet smell floats from the kitchen, accompanied by the atrium daylight and the sound of flowing water, delivering an even more laid-back and carefree atmosphere.

 
 

Encounter four seasons of flowers in different rooms

Named after flowers, the lodging’s rooms merge cool gray walls, warm-toned timber, the pared-down style with Japanese sensibility, and home living feel. As the sunlight moves throughout the successive periods of the day, it adds to each room’s distinct charm like a year-long blossom season.

 

The Japanese-style Spring Orchid Room on the second floor with tatami mats and Cotton Tree Blossom Room next to it with two double beds both provide a good night’s sleep for four guests. Narcissus Room on the third floor nods to the image of narcissus flowers by the water, coming with a bathtub for you to enjoy relaxing bathing time. Camellia Room with two single beds offers comfortable space for duo travelers, while Lily Room celebrates the blooming summer romance in the world of two on this trip to southern Taiwan.

 

As seasons change, you sit on the chair in the hallway, gazing out of the French window. In the terrace garden, the silhouette of trees is outlined by the slanting rays of the setting sun. While a Zen atmosphere flows in the tranquil greenery and sets your mind at ease, you savor the trip and listen to the trees whispering to you.

 
 

Tasting Tainan delicacies in the ceramic eating utensils

Good morning to you! Stepping out of the room and going downstairs, you follow the sun pouring through the atrium. Breakfast is already laid on the wooden table in the lobby: Tainan delicacies placed on the pretty ceramic plates in the wood tray, along with fresh fruits, mille crepe cake made and fridged yesterday, and a cup of hot coffee, the morning immediately filled with happiness!

 

To offer travelers a bite of authentic Tainan food, Mia selects classic delicacies such as vegetable rice dumpling, savory rice pudding, and salty congee on an alternative basis. She would also show you the expert way to eat it: “The savory rice pudding would taste better when it is cold!” Drizzle some soy sauce on the pudding and taste the salty and sweet flavors intertwined and its cold and firm texture. The Tainan delicacies are not only delicious, but also like the ceramic utensils carrying them – simple and plain at first glance, but crucial to the local people’s daily life with a down-to-earth and warm feel.

 

Every time you come to Tainan, you would feel the warmth like returning hometown. Stay in Wood Whispering Residence, the relaxed ambience is just like coming home. In the alley of Anping, the Residence is built with sincerity and tenderness. Living and breathing with the moving sun and flowing water, Wood Whispering Residence depicts the ever-warm daily scenery on your journey.
