We had a very good week in the apartment. Pete's responses to our emails and all Amy's help made the rental process a smooth one. The apartment suited our needs very well. We enjoyed the constant hot water supply.
The building itself was quiet and secure.
We enjoyed the location and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment to friends.
One frustration was the fact that there were no instructions (in English)for the washing machine - we arrived with laundry expecting to be able to use it.
We had a fantastic time staying in Pete's apartment. The apartment was very spacious for six people and was also very clean. Lots of information was given in the apartment, taxi's were easily accessible and the apartment was in a good location. Overall a great stay in Shanghai!
Instruction was wonderful and location was really attractive and easy to visit several place. Rooms were neat and clean. We enjoyed the first visiting in shanghai.
We had a great stay in petes place. The location was great , really close to the metro. Great facilities. We had a small glitch with the heating but as soon as we emailed Amy she got everything sorted out. Thanks to sandy who came to fix the heating and even came to the hairdressers with me to translate. Staying at petes apartment with two small kids gave us the convenience of a home environment but with the security of knowing his team were nearby to help us out. Thanks to everyone
Everything was great. Pete was very helpful before the trip with my questions and very responsive throughout the entire process. The apartment was great. The neighborhood was great, too. It's close to all forms of transportation if you'd like to travel around the city. Highly recommended! Thanks, Pete!
We just returned from Shanghai. We were in Pete's apartment for 8 nights. The apartment was good and located in a neighbourhood which is pretty convenient. Nearby to MRT station - Metro 9 line. There are also convenient stores nearby. And, if you are craving for coffee, Costa Coffee is just down the block.
However, it would be great if the cleaner had turned up as advised. Unfortunately the cleaner only turn up once during the period of our stay.
If we do visit Shanghai again, I would consider Pete's apartment again. Moving about is convenient and there are shops and food are easily accessible.
As per the pictures the apartment is very large, especially for a city like Shanghai. Everything was very neat and tidy and the provision of filtered warm and cold water along with some condiments (like vegemite) was a welcoming touch.
The apartment is located really close to the Jiashan Road metro which made getting around a lot easier. There is also a big Tesco near the stadium across the road which was very handy. We actually walked down to Tianzifang which was quite a nice 20 minute stroll.
Host's contact in Shanghai was very quick and helpful addressing any questions or concerns.
The only blip in our experience is we were unable to find the host's contact to obtain access to the apartment at arrival. A few hours later we were able to establish contact and everything was settled satisfactorily. As a guest, probably a good idea to re-confirm all details with host's contact just prior to arrival.

About the Host, Pete
British, living in Rio with my wife from Rio, so we travel a lot, and the Shanghai apartment is where I live when I am back in China to conduct business. My friendly staff are across the road, 300 meters away, so can solve any problems needed
