I would like to welcome you into our unique abode.
Our home is located in one of the most attractive area within Shanghai's French Concession. With the famous yet charming Tian Zi Fang immediately adjacent, this neighborhood is the most optimal downtown locations to stay.

My apartment is bright, airy, and full of character. It's located on the top floor of a very traditional Chinese lane home.
The interior is really charming with dark hardwood floors, modern furniture, and modern furnishings with the feel of a loving home.
There's also a 50m2 Roof Garden that overlooks TianZiFang's restaurants. On our rooftop, you can take lounge and relax on our comfortable outdoor furniture. The balcony is really like an oasis from the hustle & bustle of the Shanghai city life.
**Kindly note, you will be renting ONE large spare room that can accommodate ONE to TWO people.
Recently We just newly bought a puppet Emma, a border collie , if you are a dog lover that will be great, if you do have allergy or fear to puppies, please don't book our place.
