Guests often search for this popular amenity

Our cave is located in the beautiful rural countryside of Xi'an. Come enjoy a private weekend at the cave, and adventure around the beautiful landscape of the area!

The space
This 300 years old cave has been dug by hand around an interior courtyard; the 3 bedrooms of this ecological dwelling stay naturally fresh in summer and cool in winter. Authentic decoration has been kept: traditional “kang” bed, wooden furniture, carpets, candle shades… for a warm comfort. In each room you can find a wash-up corner with a large bowl, hot water thermos and towels.

The Western style WC is located in the courtyard (A 3 meter walk from your cave). It is a Port-a-potty in which we have installed, lights, a fan, and a flushing mechanism.

Shower: Each room has a basin with a thermos of clean hot water for you to drink or use to wash your face. For a proper shower we currently just have a simple camping style shower set up located in the courtyard. Fill up the watering can full of water, hang it in the shower area and use it to wash yourself off!

Interior courtyard:
In the courtyard, a well with drinkable water makes up for the absence of running water. Rural atmosphere with a grind wheel set as a garden table.
Also find a small metal fireplace, feel free to build a bonfire to warm yourself up over the winter or roast marshmallows for a snack (ask Ayi for marshmallows)!
