The most beautiful place in Xiamen is the long coastline at the famous Huandao Lu! WIthin a 5 minutes walking distance you reach the beach where one can enjoy bike rides, jet skiing and long walks. Downstairs at the compound, there is a supermarket which opens 365 days/year and a few restaurants.
The Xiamen conference and exhibition center is directly in front of our house and it takes about 4-5 minutes to walk there.
The apartment is nicely tailored. There are large glassdoors between the rooms allowing to let in a lot of sunlight. However, there are curtains which can be used to "close" the rooms and also the doors can be closed, so that your privacy is ensured.
Feel free to use our fridge and our small cooking area. Although the cooking area is a bit small, it offers all the basics like a waterboiler, toaster, one cooking plate and dishes which you are free to use. We have a spacious and cosy living room with TV and AC. Wifi access will be available for you.
We be living in the apartment with you but in some cases we might also be traveling by the time you are here.
Lately we are very busy with university or work. Therefore we can not promise any interactions. But of course we can give you information about Xiamen, help you with your further travel etc.
We will provide you all the basics you need for a comfortable journey like bedding, towels and water. Our walk-in closet offers space for your belongings and baggage.
We are looking forward to meet nice people from all over the world and would like to welcome you in our home!
If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask!
PS: We speak German, English, intermediate Cantonese, intermediate Mandarin, intermediate Spanish
It is a peaceful place, not too crowded and since it is by the beach, you always feel a touch of sea breeze, which we really enjoy.
Buses go to the BRT station (Xiamen's fastest public transport) within 3 stations and from there you can reach the city center or the ferry terminal which goes to the beautiful Gulangyu Island within 15-20 minutes. There is also a bus directly going from our apartment to Xiamen University, Zeng Cuo An and Nanputuo Temple.
Please note, that this room does not have an A/C, however, we provide a fan. Mostly we are lucky that the air from the sea is cooling the room a little bit.
The living room is equipped with an A/C in case it gets hot during day time, you can always relax and cool off there.
Our apartment is a non-smoking and pet free apartment. Before you leave the apartment, please make sure to close the windows as it sometimes unpredictably rains in Xiamen.
Of course, summer in China are hot and we understand that everyone needs some time to cool off. However, we like to give the environment some rest sometimes. Therefore make sure the A/C is not constantly turned on. Thanks! :)
It would be difficult to describe kinder hosts than Jenny and Phillip. From impeccable home hospitality to an outrageous night out - dancing in the bars of Xiamen my time staying with the Phu's was superb. Waking up with a panoramic view of the ocean made the visit all the more enjoyable. I wholeheartedly recommend their home as an ideal holiday destination.
街区很安静，周边有公车站，小区管理也比较正规，离海边不是很远，走7~8分钟能到。A SEA VIEW很明亮，只是我在的几天都不是晴天，没有看到日出。正是我要的结果。房间很大，很干净，这几天有点冷，因为海风强烈吧。Jenny很热心，还借给我证件。再次感谢。
The room is quite bright, comfortable and has good sea views. Jenny was not at home, we met her boyfriend Philip (a handsome boy, very friendly and accessibility) , it was really a nice experience to stay here, we might go back again if time is ok. Thanks again for all:)

Born and raised in Berlin, Germany, I am now living abroad enjoying the beautiful landscapes of Xiamen. In order to get to know my ancestors culture, I have been living in China for a few times, in the cities of Beijing and Chengdu. Living in China for me is like a never ending adventure which I like to share with people who are interested.
Apart from that I like to explore all kinds of cultures and countries, I enjoy photography (although I am a beginner behind the camera), swimming, dancing. Things that set me in a good mood are Zumba classes and food! I am a food addict and quite open-minded towards every kind of food as long it is delicious and spicy!
I try to enjoy my life as long as I feel young (that means probably forever) ;) Airbnb is a perfect platform to meet and host people from all over the world and for ensuring you have a nice stay in the beautiful Xiamen!
