Description

Laurel has described his/her home in English.

What you will love about this home

We have a kid-friendly home and our apartment is brightly-lit with big windows and comfortable beds. We have a spectacular view from our living room picture window down to the public square/plaza below where every day there are people doing tai chi, dancing, etc. Sometimes there are free shows/performances with ethnic costumes and once we even had a mini-circus come there.

Each room in our apartment has a "kong-tiao" for heat/air conditioning and they work well. We have toys, games, books, and a big DVD collection (donations from other expat families when they move) for families to enjoy while staying at our house. Note: we live in a 7-story walk-up so if you like fitness, this place is perfect!

What you will love in the neighborhood

We live in the "foreigner" part of town with quite a few expats from around the world. There is a large grocery store (Carrefour) within a few minutes' walk and various restaurants, both local and western-style nearby. Just outside the main gate to our apartment complex are a fruit store, a veggie store, a bakery, a little noodle shop, and a 24-hour convenience store. Close by is a pedestrian zone with a Starbucks, tea houses, and a great western-style bar where we like to stroll and visit.

There is ample public transportation/taxi/uber in front of our complex and throughout Chengdu. We have several English-speaking families living in our neighborhood, one on the floor below us, so if any emergencies arise they are nearby.

Additional information

Note: Our apartment is a 7th floor walk-up!

If you need special items (baby crib, extra beds, etc.) we can likely arrange it. Just let us know.
