Other Things to Note
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!
(A) Let us know roughly the time you are leaving (normal check out is anytime before 12pm). Housekeeping will be scheduled to arrive at that time. You do not need to wait for them, just leave the keys and turn off all lights and climate control!
(B) Please make sure all food is rinsed off dishes and taking the garbage is also helpful when you are leaving :-) The apartments have been designed to make a great vacation stay for our guests, and we ask that all guests leave the home in the condition they came in! Normal cleaning is to be expected but please help to minimize larger messes! Thank you!
Great location and easy to stay! Mariel and Helene are friendly and provider a lots convenient for us. Just a bit noisy upstair in the early morning, included electronic cleaner and piano practice in 7am.
Beautiful room, ideal location! I made a mistake during check-in and Mariel did everything she could to help me out - literally on her wedding day! I can't tell you how appreciative I was of this. Highly recommend this listing, and would love to come back some time!
Very comfortable room at a very central location in town. Charming and quiet neighborhood. Accommodation is fine but not large. Ideal for a short stay.
Great cozy place with a comfortable bed in a great area! Highly recommended!
Nice apt in a very convenient location, good choice for Shanghai both for leisure and business.
If you are looking for a change from the standard, Western-style hotel in Shanghai, you should rent this studio apartment. It is in a great neighborhood about a 10 minute walk to the metro. Just be aware that you will be having an authentic experience in a real Shanghai neighborhood. That means there is less privacy than a hotel since you are on the ground floor with a great bay window (with curtains) and the immediate neighbors are not ex-pats. And there is no cable TV, so you'll have to be OK with skipping CNN and BBC. There is internet -- not sure if it is strong enough to stream video. In any case, as long as you are willing to make those compromises, you will enjoy staying at Mariel's garden house.

Originally from NY, based now in Shanghai, China.
I am a designer who has made it her 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, and I have several 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!
