The space

Welcome to our Condo! Entire house for renting!

Our condo located in central Beijing next to MRT line 4, line 14 and line 10 (the station located in Jiaomen East ), and over 30 bus lines nearby, making it very convenient to most attractions in town. Besides, interstate bullet train is only 10 minutes walk (or one bus stop) away, you can even make a one day round trip to other major cities (Jin'nan, Tianjin, etc.) in nearby provinces. The community is relatively old but quite safe (found in early 90's), most residents are senior people, there are even a kindergarten and an elementary school inside the community.

A 20-minute bus ride will take you to the famous Temple of Heaven (which was built during the era of the Yongle Emperor), Ox Street (the Muslim Quarter), Wangfujing Street (Downtown Beijing) and Tiananmen Square. Easily access to the grocery store, cafe, bakery, deli, fruit stand, farmer & fresh sea food market and wholesale shopping mall all within 5-minute walking distance, nearest Carrefour supermarket is also couple stops away. This area is also known as Teochew district, you can easily find authentic Teochew cuisine and condiment.

As for the condo itself, there are one bedroom with a queen-sized bed, one shower room with hot water 24/7 and an open kitchen in living room where equipped with WiFi, Dish HD, Air purifiers and unlimited cafe & Chinese tea. Finding a parking place inside the community is a little tricky, but parking fee is very cheap if you can spot a space.

We can also help book or purchase domestic airline/railway ticket and local travel insurance, which should be cheaper than international agent quote. One day trip (12 hours) to Great Wall & Ming Tomb can also be arranged, the cost is CNY1500 (including driver, SUV rental, gas, toll and parking expenses, not including lunch and entrance fee); One day Beijing City Drive (8 hours), cost CNY900 (including car rental, driver, not including lunch, gas, and parking expenses); Depending on our schedule, other short/long distance road trip services e.g. 10 days round trip across inner Mongolia to Russia border is also possible.

We are very glad to host you and be your trip advisor. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions about the apartment or your travel ideas. Hope you could have a pleasant truly China experience.

Mona's place is walking distance to the nearest bus stop, which will then take you to the nearest subway station (Beijing South Railway Station) (bus (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)). There are many nearby restaurants as well, including KFC. There are also many restaurants at the South Railway Station if you would like more choices. The apartment is in a quiet building, yet the neighborhood is lively. The people in the neighborhood are really helpful and kind, so even if you know zero Chinese, someone is always there to help. Mona is a great host who was always available when I needed something. Though we did not meet in person, her friend Kris greeted me on arrival and helped me become adjusted. Overall a great stay with a very helpful host! :)

Comfortable old neighborhood with lots of older people. Seems very safe. Very inexpensive local foods within a short walk (hopefully you can speak some Chinese). Apartment building is pretty old but inside is nice and cozy with all the necessities you need. About a 15-30min walk to the nearest station and very easy to get around Beijing from there. Host was very responsive and I enjoyed communicating with her. She provided me with anything I needed very promptly.

This was a lovely apartment, an oasis of clean and calm, during our stay in Beijing. You could really tell that this home was lovingly decorated, cared for and lived in by the owners. It is also the most well-stocked apartment we have ever stayed in -- everything, and we mean everything! (rice cooker, coffee maker, air filters, hair dryer, corkscrews, spatulas, baking equipment, washer, dryer...) was there. Even though we stayed there for a long stay (5 weeks) with our young son (4yo), we barely needed to get anything else except for daily groceries. The bed was super comfortable, and Mona even provided a sleeping bag for our son, which he found very comfortable. Mona answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly. This was a great choice for our long stay in Beijing.

We stayed at Mona's place in for 8 nights in mid October 2013. Mona was very accommodating and her place was comfortable (wifi, full kitchen, shower and toilet). Also, the apartment is walking distance to the South Railway Station (15 minute walk) which you can take to explore the city. Thanks again Mona!

If you are looking for comfortable accommodations in Beijing at a reasonable cost, look no further. Mona and Exzine's apartment is a perfect place for your visit to Beijing. The apartment is in a non-tourist area and only ONE bus stop from the subway station. Take bus 529 from Beijing South Railway subway station. Bus 529 only goes one way from the station. Beautiful, clean and new IKEA style shower (hot water 24/7), toilet, kitchen sink with water filter, gas stove, clothes washer and dryer, and fridge. The most comfortable queen bed and a porch/patio to have a beer/glass of wine on at the end of the day. Supermarket in building behind the apartment. And Mona and Exzine are the BEST helpful friendly hosts you can possibly get. Stay here, you will love it.

This was our second time staying at Monas place. This stay was just as wonderful as the first. We got to enjoy a wonderful dinner with Mona and Exzine that was very fun, and left us knowing that we will remain friends for sometime. We can't wait until our next visit and for a potential trip together tomorrow going!
