I (email hidden) / bar table out on the terrace, so you can see over the whole of Shanghai

We are opposite the Luwan stadium, so its a 2 minute jog tot eh 400m jogging track

3 minutes to Tesco supermarket
2 minutes to both Costa coffee and Starbucks

  • The host gave us much help finding things like where to buy train tickets.
    The apartment was nice, bed 5 and 6 could been better.
    It was 5 minute walk to supermarket and subway, couldn't be better.
    Thank Pete.

  • Pete was helpful and responsive. Before my trip to Shanghai, Pete sent me lots of information on Shanghai which I found useful. He also replied promptly to my emails and was warm and friendly. The place was clean, neat and welcoming when my friends and I arrived. The apartment was better than what we expected. It was fully furnished with everything that my friends and I needed. The internal design was wonderful and pretty. As the unit was located at high level, the view from the balcony was excellent. The cleaning auntie was nice as well. When we asked her about locations of different places of interest, she tried her best to tell us how to go and what to see. The location was near the subway and places of interest such as Tian Zi Fang, the bund and Nanjing Street. There's also a few stalls nearby which allowed us to buy fruits and breakfast during our stay. All in all, the place is excellent. I would highly recommend the place to those going to Shanghai

  • Wir (2 Erwachsene und 2 Jugendliche) haben eine tolle Woche in Shanghai in Pete`s Appartment verbracht.
    Pete und Helen haben unsere Anfragen immer freundlich und kurzfristig beantwortet. Vielen Dank euch beiden.
    Die Wohnung ist sehr großzügig mit 3 Schlafräumen, 2 Bädern, Küche und einem Wohn- und Esszimmer. Handtücher und Bettwäsche sind reichlich vorhanden. Nicht ganz so zufrieden waren wir mit dem Reinigungszustand der Wohnung, insbesondere in den Bädern und in der Küche. Helen hat aber versprochen sich darum zu kümmern. Wenn dies noch verbessert wir, können wir die Wohnung gerne weiterempfehlen.

  • This is a large, comfy space in a wonderful neighborhood. Great for 4 adults. The host and his staff were always available to help with information and airport pickups. We've been to Shanghai before but this was the first time staying in an apartment. I recommend this one!

    Response from Pete:

    Ainsley, many thanks for this feedback, this is not acceptable, I did not know the cleaner was getting this lazy, we have moved her on, and I have now written instructions to my staff to check that food it not left and the apartment is very very clean. I send them overseas every year so they start to understand what levels we westerners expect, my sincere apologies for this, Pete

  • Love the place. The views on the patio are fantastic. Great kitchen. And the best part was the convenience of being located less than five minutes away from the Subway. The owners made locating and getting in a breeze and had great recommendations waiting for us. Thanks Pete!

  • We had a great stay in Pete's apartment! The location was very convenient ( just around the corner from the metro and within walking distance to a number of shops restraints and sights). The information package left by Pete was very helpful. Our family of 4 was very comfortable and it was nice to have access to a fully equipped kitchen and sate light TV with an abundance of English channels after a long day of sight seeing. I would definitely come back to Pete's place if I ever visit Shanghai with my family again.

  • Pete's apartment was spacious, had a great location close to a supermarket, convenience stores, small places selling dumplings and interesting local food, as well as to the metro from where we could go anywhere. The apartment was comfortable even for six adults and a three-year-old. The only problem we had was a slow leak from the ensuite bathroom ceiling that they were unable to fix in time for our visit. The power also went out for a few minutes one night apparently because we had all the heaters on. We had to get someone from building maintenance to fix it (he asked for ten yuan and Pete's staff promptly reimbursed us for it!). Overall it was good value for money.

    March 2014
  • We had a great time at the apartment, the place had everything we needed, from the kitchen appliances to the laundry machines. Pete and Helen were very responsive and helped us on our arrival to Shanghai. The location was conveniently located near convenience stores, supermarkets, malls, subway and restaurants.
