About this listing

Walking distance from Jiaotong University metro stop and direct subway access to Fudan. Located on the border of the French Concession in a local Chinese neighborhood; 2-3 metro stops from major business and nightlife areas.

The space

Quiet, spacious room with easy access to the street and a well-equipped kitchen. There is also a friendly orange tabby who spends much of her days sleeping on chairs or gazing meditatively out the window. The living room has a comfortable couch that is good to sleep on--but not to look at!

Guest access

Guests have access to the kitchen, bathroom, living room, laundry space, and of course their room.

Interaction with guests

We are available to answer any questions before or during the stay about the city, the neighborhood, or anything else China-related. We both work during the day, but our hours and days off are flexible if guests need help with arranging travel etc.

Other things to note

Our cat is very friendly and sleeps in the laundry nook at night, so there is no need to worry about her trying to open your door at 3am. If you leave your door open, she will wander in for a prolonged visit. If you will be staying in China long-term and need to register with the police, we can help you with that.

Excellent stay! Clara and Ian were very helpful and welcoming. They even helped me register with the police. The bed was firm and comfortable. Hot water with good water pressure. If you like walking, it's convenient to get to the French Concession. The nearest subway station is about a 10min walk. Lots of shops and food around. Grateful I got to share a couple of nights here.

The apartment and the room are very nice Although I didn't interact with Clara and Ian a lot, but they were always there when I needed them. It's a great experience and I highly recommend this place.

Clara's place is awesome! Nice quiet residential area with just enough restaurants and convenience stores, a quick hop to the bus stop (two easy buses and about 30/40 mins to theBund), frequent taxis, and about a half mile from the subway (and a very easy commute from the train station!). Clara was friendly and easy to communicate with from the get go, and even though some days our paths never crossed she was always available. She always had great recommendations of places to go or eat and how to get around as well - definitely saved me a few bucks getting to the airport for my departure! She even let me use the washing machine. I highly recommend this listing for a single traveler needing a comfortable, safe place to crash.

Clara and Ian were great hosts, they made me feel at home all the time I was at their home. The room is very comfortable and you will get anything you need while you are there. Everything is very clean and in order. The location can't be better, since it is in the middle of Shanghai. It is a very short walk away from the subway station, having line 3/4/10 right within a 8-10 minute walk. There are plenty of choices of restaurants, coffee shops, snacks, and shopping right as you walk outside. I would definitely recommend their home to anyone wanting to have a great experience in shanghai and getting to know some great people at the same time. Not only did I have a great stay at their place, I also made some really nice friends. Thanks a lot once again.

Clara did a wonderful job of making me feel welcome in her home as well as preparing me to explore the surrounding area. She lives in a very safe neighborhood which is surrounded by some pretty exceptional Chinese street food. The room is well maintained and comfortable with its own AC and closet. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I would stay there again given the chance.

Originally from New York, but currently living in Shanghai, China, I love to travel, eat delicious food, and learn about history. When I am not working I do ceramics and cook. I read a lot and look for recommendations everywhere I go. I love meeting new people and growing my community around the world. When I travel I love to dive into the history of the area and learn everything I can about what life is like there.
