Our cozy 3 floor home is a rare find in the city of Beijing. Nestled in a garden setting in the Sanlitun Embassy area we are a relaxed and quiet haven. Close to major tourist sites and with bicycles we can loan you we can offer a perfect stay.
Our house is a three story villa in a compound with “diplomatic” standard security. We are located within walking distance to the American, French, Japanese, and Israeli embassies, and a ten minute bicycle ride to the Sanlitun Embassy District. Subway Line 10 is within walking distance; a launching point for travelers heading to the Forbidden City, the Hutongs of Beijing and beyond.
The private room is on the top floor of the house ‘attic style’ with a large south facing balcony (1.7 m²) which overlooks an extensive public garden with trees and a pond. The private balcony has a table and chairs to sit and read or relax; take in an evening breeze or catch some morning sun. The ground floor garden patio area is also at guests’ disposal; sit under a shady tree and enjoy refreshments. The room has an imported Queen sized bed and mattress, fluffy pillows, reading lights, free Wi-Fi 24/7, desk with chair and study lamp, comfortable armchair as well as plenty of storage and free use of the in-room air conditioning.
We provide towels and linens as well as other essentials. Guest may keep food in the refrigerator and kitchen cupboard. A bicycle is available to borrow. There is free access to the pool (seasonal), the gym (year round), and the soccer field, basketball and tennis courts, all within the compound. There is also a small convenience store within the gates. The residential compound is gated and maintains 24 hour walk-around security.
Our neighborhood has a fabulous range of multi-cultural restaurants to suit all budgets, both foreign and local supermarkets, vegetable and fruit stalls, a German Bakery, French Bakery, German Butcher, Pizzeria’s and street cafes. We live close to Solana Shopping Mall, Chaoyang Park for an afternoon stroll under the old trees or an easy walk to the local flower markets that sell souvenirs and Chinese trinkets to post home.

Wonderful stay, wonderful Family. Will definitely stay again.
It was my first time experience to spend more than 2 nights in stranger's house. All I can say about the 5 days-life spent with Cherrie & Ed is that time was too short for us to enjoy the moments, time was too short for me to communicate with and learn from their minds, time was too short for us to play with the kids and laugh with them together. The hosts are just so nice. Thanks to all of the family members and wish I could have chance to visit again.
very good hosts, the house is a welcoming place, the bed is comfortable. you really are very kindly, guide you care about, really my son and I are very grateful.
They are really great people.
(한국에서 방문하시는 분들을 위해서 한국어로 후기를 남깁니다)
교통편도, 위치도 여러면에서 좋은 곳이었습니다.
어차피 북경은 택시비가 비싸지 않기 때문에 공항 근처인 이곳에서 머문다면 저렴하게 잘 지내는 겁니다
전용실이기는 하지만 2층에 가족이 살고 또 다른 분에게 방을 빌려주기도 했습니다.
저는 옥상에 있는 방을 혼자 사용했는데 제겐 너무나 포근하고 좋은 공간이었습니다.
호텔을 이용하는 것 보다는 이 곳에서 중국에서 살고 있는 사람들의 삶을 엿보는 것도 좋을 겁니다
주인 아저씨와 아줌마가 너무 친절했습니다
저는 중간에 길을 잃기도 했었는데요
아저씨가 절 데리러 와주시기도 했습니다
어려운 장소에 있다기보다는 주소를 사전에 잘 체크하지 못한 제 잘못이니 장소에 대한 걱정은 안하셔도 됩니다
또 천사같은 해나를 보실 수 있는 지상에서 유일한 곳입니다. 주인 부부의 4번째 딸 해나가 정말정말정말 귀엽습니다
(제 다음으로 가시는 분이 해나를 만나시면 인사를 전해주셨으면..)
바로 앞에 마트가 있기는 하지만
1층 거실과 식탁에 이미 많은 음식과 식재료가 있습니다
티와 간식을 먹을 수 있도록 배려해주셔서 잘 지냈습니다
좁다고 불편하신 분들이 있으실 수도 있습니다
가족들이랑 같이 사는 것이라 싫어하실 분들도 분명히 계시리라 생각합니다
하지만 저는 에어비앤비를 많이 경험해본바로는 이런 공간에서 머물러 보는 것도 여행의 한 부분처럼 느껴졌습니다
어차피 택시로 모든 곳을 이동하실 것이기 때문에
불편함은 없으실겁니다 ~
Ed & Cherrie are beyond amazing. They invited me for many of their family meals, including Christmas.
Their home is welcoming, warm, and perfect in terms of amenities. The room is cute, spacious and gives you access to your own private terrace! Everything you need is here.
This family is beautiful! The kids are all so different and interesting.
If you come to Beijing, Ed & Cherrie & their children will be the best family to live with.
I will come again, and again... and again!
I met Ed in my last day and the family for whole my stay. They are very nice. And the house feels really like home style, clean and comfortable.
Cherrie and her family are very welcoming so that you feel immediately comfortable at their house. Beijing would not have been the same without meeting them. I strongly recommend this peaceful house for staying over. Very convenient area, well located house and great family. Very cosy room and comfortable bed. Hope we can repeat!
Great experience in Cherry's house. Nice place and warm host. Recommend
The accomodation is confortable and clean and well located. Ed and Cherry and their dauthers are very warm and nice persons, making the home stay a special experience. I was staying at their place for 2 weeks with my 3.5 years old son and we really enjoyed the playground and the space around the house. Alice
