Canlive, the name sums it up.

“Can” is the belief that we are naturally able to give positive assurance to every object that exists in life. “Can” is a type of positive belief, as well as the motivation that pushes people forward.

“Canlive” gives urban dwellers a short interlude from the hustle and bustle of city life, allowing them to reconnect with themselves.


Canlive Tainan

We offer you a journey / old house experience / short- and long-term rentals / full homestay rental.

Our homestay is located inside a lane off of Haian Road and Guohua Street. This is a great location. You can stroll along lanes and properly enjoy the tranquility of the ancient city, as well as vestiges of historical sites and fine cuisine.

This is an opportunity to come into contact with an old house that has existed for half a century. We continue to cherish the house as the owner did, giving it a new life in the process.

As soon as you step into the simple lane, the noise of the endless traffic on Haian Road and the clamor from proprietors and carousing customers will fade away. The old building is hidden inside the lane, as if attending to its own virtue in solitude. There is also the slow pace of old city life that is like tranquility elicited out of cacophony.


The plain white terrazzo floors make everything simple and pure. This is also owner Xiao Li’s life philosophy.


[About Xiao Li]

Sit inside this old house located in a lane and steep a cup of tea. You’ll feel as comfortable as if you were in your own home.

Xiao Li previously worked many years at a tea factory in Sun Moon Lake. The guesthouse owner is not only very fond of black tea, but is also a Tea Research and Extension Station-certified junior tea sensory assessor. The tea products generously provided to guests are created using tea leaves personally sourced from small farmers by Xiao Li and handmade inside tea factories.

Come and rediscover yourself. You “can.”
