I stayed for 2 weeks at Mariel's apts, Oolong Terrace & Garden House, and had the pleasure to meet Mariel on top of that. Although the exterior property doesn't look that fancy, the inside has been completely newly refurbished, is clean and carefully decorated with an assortment of different curio - paintings, statues, etc. reflecting the Chinese contemporary art & crafts. The appt therefore looks very cosy and welcoming and is actually hard to leave! Cleaning is impeccable and done 2-3 times a week. Mariel's team is as well very reactive, should one need any support during the stay. Pictures are highly reflective of the reality. Thanks to all included facilities (washing-machine, fully equipped kitchen), the ppt is also well-adapted for a long-term stay. Finally its location is perfect - French Concession being the best area to live in Shanghai and also very close to JingAn-West Nanjing business district. I would definitely stay there again!

What an amazing find! We were so happy with our stay at Oolong Terrace. Mariel and her team on the ground were very accommodating and made us feel at home with all of their support in the lead up to our stay. We were even lucky enough to have an extended check in and check out time that really helped with our travel plans in and out of Shanghai for the weekend. A lot of care and love has gone into the tasteful design of the apartment, which definitely created a pleasant atmosphere for our short stay. The apartment is in a fantastic location in the former French Concession, a short walk to some great cafes (must visit Moon Coffee Roasters, our coffee go-to just next door!) restaurants, bars and shops. We would love to stay again.

My wife and I had a wonderful time during our three night stay at the the Oolong Terrace in October 2014. Arrival was a breeze and the apartment is exactly as described on Air BnB. We especially appreciated the detailed neighborhood guild book that Mariel put together, it was our first time in the French Concession and it made finding places to eat seamless, our date night at Lost Heaven was especially fantastic. I would highly recommend the host and this apartment. Thanks again Mariel, you made our visit to Shanghai an anniversary to remember!

Great location. Beautiful and cosy apartment. Makes it hard to head out at times. Mariel and her team are really friendly and helpful. Made a huge difference to my visit. Thanks.

Decoration and location is good, clean and full function. Just one pitty, the terrace could not use now due to the outside wall repair of the next building.

I started out with a mission to provide a high quality, restful, personal residential experience for locals across China, starting with Shanghai. 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!
