The space

Location Location Location!
The property is in a truly unique spot, it's on the one block that separates the former French Concession from the Xintiandi area - with Fuxing Park on one corner and Xintiandi on the next. The house itself is very local, it's on the first floor of one of Shanghai's old villa houses.

Large & light-filled, designer open floor plan (750 sqf/70sqm), fully furnished, with french doors opening onto original tiled bedroom and bathroom, available for short and long term.

There is a small room off the kitchen that is not photographed on airbnb, so there's extra space for storing suitcases and clothes, etc.

- fully equipped workstation with wi-fi
- large windows
- queen size bed
- rain shower
- housekeeping service twice weekly
- fresh towels, linens & luxury toiletries
- bottled water

Additional Paid Services available are:
- Daily/weekly maid service
- Food & Wine service menu is provided and provisions stocked before arrival
- Airport pick-up

Feel free to message me before you book. I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have, thanks!

Interaction with guests

Duyi Design generally renovates and redesigns older apartments and lane houses. This allows us to hand pick more unusual living spaces, with a sense of history and soul. We renovate each home from a collection of interior ideas and pieces that blend modern and vintage elements of style, functionality, and design.

The neighborhood

Danshui Road, at the corner has developed into such an interesting street over the last year - little cafes, a western convenience store, wine bars - and still a Chinese hand pulled noodle joint that's to die for...

There are supermarkets nearby, so it should be no problem to get Western and Eastern foods to cook in your kitchen!

Getting around

One block from brand new Line 10 subway
One block from Xintiandi's hip restaurants and shopping
1/2 block from Fuxing Park
1/2 block from Sinan Mansions in the French Concession

Taxis are easily accessible at the lane entrance on Fuxing Middle Road

Other things to note

We want to make sure you feel at home when you arrive to your Pied a Terre. Hire our driver to handle your airport transfer, order from our food and wine menu so your home is ready when you arrive - and don't forget to pre-book our spa guru, Helen, to take away your aches and pains after a long flight! We have prepared a city guide with our picks to experience in the city and around the Pied - it's at the house for you to per-use as you like!

There are 3 of us at your service, don't hesitate to get in touch if you require anything. We look forward to hosting you!

House Rules
Check-in is after 2PM

The idea behind my properties is to create a "home away from home" feeling, a vacation/ business trip property that's unique and stylish, and provides an authentic place for those who really want to experience a special, historic part of Shanghai.

Please respect your surroundings, whether it's the materials that have been provided to make your stay most comfortable, or it's the people in the neighborhood. Most of all, enjoy!

Your Host



Shanghai, China · Joined in July 2010

I have made it my mission to provide a high quality, restful, personal residential experience for locals across China. In such a fast paced location like Shanghai, it's hard to create a uniquely original home space that's a true oasis. This luxury should be available to those traveling into Shanghai as well. Now we have multiple vacation/business rentals which provide a unique experience in top, choice locations in the city, namely the French Concession.

Instead of going to a hotel, try something new, a memorable trip to Shanghai awaits! We have just begun expanding with some new options in Los Angeles. Check us out on either side of "the pond", we would love to host you!
