About this listing

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION - our apartment is on Huahai Rd in the CBD. Huahai road is the main shopping street of Shanghai and opposite Xintiandi.

Xintiandi is a fashionable Shanghai landmark. Here you can discover the city's premier gathering place to relax, take in historical surroundings and enjoy local culture.

The COZY APARTMENT building was built in 1932 and is heritage listed.

The space

During our soft opening period we are accepting bookings at the discounted rate listed above. Please book early to enjoy these special rate because our price will shortly increase to RMB 850 / night which is the market rate for a property of this size, quality and capital value. Our 87sqm apartment was renovated 5 years ago and comprises of a spacious SEPARATE bedroom, separate ensuite and open plan living, dining & kitchen area. Because it is an old building the rooms are spacious and the ceilings are very high giving you a sense of space. (Please note our apartment is a large, true 1 bedroom apartment with separate rooms for privacy, it is NOT a small, single studio style room that is commonly listed in this price range. )

We are located on the 2nd floor of a 4 story building with large north and south facing windows. You will find yourself conveniently living above the main shopping street and just a short walk to all the creature comforts of Xintiandi.

Another quality renovation by the professional ThousandROCKS building company that specialises in URBAN-DECO-STYLE.

Guest access

Guests have the whole apartment to enjoy to themselves. This apartment is a dedicated Airbnb letting and is not cluttered with personal items. Should you require any extra cooking utensils or household items if I have them in my possession I am happy to deliver.

Interaction with guests

Generally I find guests want to be left to their own devices. However if you wish to lever my 20 years of having lived in Shanghai I am more than happy to meet for coffee early in your stay or I can always be contacted using Airbnb messages.

I am also happy to recommend restaurants, vendors and tourist attractions or give my opinion of attractions that you are considering.

Other things to note

Our apartment is located on the 2nd floor and our old building does not have a lift ie you will have to be able to carry your luggage up 2 flights of stairs.

We loved staying at Sarah’s Lane Lifestyle granny flat so much we tried to stay there again when we returned to Shanghai however the granny flat had already been booked. Luckily, she had a vacancy at this apartment. We couldn’t believe that we were staying on Huahai Lu – the premier shopping street of Shanghai. We thoroughly enjoyed being so close to the excitement and food scene of Xintiandi. Also we found some nice Xinjiang restaurants and local noodle bars on Yandang Road. And there's a nice handmade jewelry store at the corner. There we got some nice gifts for friends at a reasonable price. It was a wonderful stay and we will come again next time we are in Shanghai.

I was born in Taiwan but left the country when I was 8. After staying in Africa and the Mediterranean for 10 years I went and completed my Ba(nons) and MBA in the UK. Been in Shanghai since I married my wife from Shanghai and it turned out to be the best decision (both).

After a short successful career in the hospitality industry we started investing in real estate during the crises of 08/09. The market and climate was ripe and we have been doing that ever since.

This apartment I dont intent to sell and wish to leave in the family for my son Jeremy to inherit. We have chosen to stay closer to Jeremy's kindergarten so we have designed this apartment with Air bnb in mind.

Enjoy your stay, i'll have my maid go prepare the house and we try to provide 5 star standards.
