Descripción

This LaoJia 老家 is a revived Qing Dynasty house in a small fishing- farming village. It sits beside the Li River, amongst the mystical karst mountains. Come here to feel at home in authentic rural China. Other Laojia 老家 locations on Laojia. co

The building.
Our house is a display of Qing Dynasty craftsmanship at its finest. This stone, wood, and brick home has been standing proud for nearly 150 years. Our careful renovation has ensured the continued life and enjoyment of the house in its original beauty.

Find Peace.
Our place has been designed with an aura of peace in mind. Come here for a break from the Chinese city life and to absorb the countryside around you. Read, write, meditate, and be free in a welcoming setting.

Modern Comfort.
While preserving the authentic architecture, we've made the upgrades that are necessary for clean and comfortable living. A hot shower, fast internet, and an eye for design in the details.

Our 2 houses has 5 bedrooms available for booking, each with a large bed that easily sleeps two guests.

Each bedroom has its own private, adjoined meditation and study room in which an extra sleeping arrangement can be arranged if desired.

Guests will share a common bathroom and common toilet room.

Our 5 bedrooms are listed on separate pages on Airbnb (numbered 1-5), each with its own calendar of availability.

Fresh and healthy vegetarian meals are prepared daily (lunch and dinner) by a local woman from our village. The cost of meals is 25RMB (children 10RMB) per person per meal.

Breakfast is free and you may help yourself when you wake up - an assortment of local fruits, oatmeal, eggs, coffee and tea.

Maarten, Eric, and Hua set up this airbnb together. These days, They are often away from the village.

Haibo is currently taking care of the house, and will be present daily to interact with guests. He is an angel of a human being, always extremely caring, trustworthy, and respectful. Haibo has been diligently studying English with us since 2013 and feels blessed to have the opportunity to build his confidence by interacting with guests. Be patient with him, and rest assured that Haibo is doing all that he can to make you feel welcome and taken care of as a special guest to his village.

With Haibo's level of English in mind, please try not to ask too many or too complicated of questions before booking. As soon as you make a booking (Airbnb will not allow it beforehand) we will email you our guidebook containing all of the information that you will need to survive and thrive in the village. It will answer most any questions that you may have, including information about arriving at our place. Again, to make Haibo's job easier, please wait until you receive our guidebook before sending him many questions.

Local Life.
One of the greatest opportunities you will have during your stay is being able to interact with the locals. Many visitors to China never get to experience the friendly charm of the people in the countryside. Engaging in this opportunity is ultimately up to you. If you would like to interact, you can let the locals know by:
leaving the front door open (a beautiful gesture to let them know they are welcome to come and 'chat', even if you don't speak Chinese, body language goes a long way); going on hikes with villagers; walking around the village or through the farmland and saying hello (which usually leads to more); inviting neighbors for tea session (this is very common and not seen as an inconvenience, rather a warm opportunity for greeting and understanding). These are highly suggested and mind opening activities.

Epic Scenery.
Our village sits on the bank of the most immaculate stretch of the Li River, with a backdrop of famously ominous mountains that can be seen from the open-air living room. It is truly breathtaking to spend some time hiking the undiscovered stone paths into the mountains. Being immersed in the beauty of the natural environment (far beyond the tourism) and the experience of having a local as your guide walking their old stone paths makes for something quite unforgettable.

Some activities you may want to explore: hiking in the mountains (untouched by tourism), walking along the river paths, swimming in the river, explore the local cave, take boat tours to Xingping, day trips to Yangshuo and to a nearby organic tea plantation…

After making a booking, we will email you a guidebook in which we have written about our history in the village, our house, local life, and activities for guests.

We are located well outside of the touristy area of Yangshuo. Our location is rural, but it's fairly simple arriving here.

From Yangdi, there is frequent public bus and also taxi access to both Yangshuo and Guilin.

Getting to Yangdi:

From Guilin Railway Station you may either travel by bus (1.5 hour, RMB/person) or taxi (1.5 hour, 160RMB) to Yangdi.

From Guilin Airport you may travel by taxi direct to Yangdi (1.5 hours, 280RMB). There is also an airport bus (20RMB/person) which ends up downtown Guilin from where you still need to make your way to Guilin Railway Station, and from there you may continue as above.

From Yangshuo you may travel by bus (1 hour, 15RMB/person) or by taxi (40 min, 120RMB) to Yangdi.

Arrival instructions in detail will be emailed to you upon booking.

Although we have designed our home as a place to find peace among the fast pace of China, please remember that we are located in a rural village in a developing country. Willingness to be adaptable and respectful are important in being able to enjoy your stay.

Also, this is not a hotel or hostel. In saying that, we really hope people will feel at home, but we also appreciate guests helping out, taking initiative, and being independent, as this is the way we have designed this experience.


Normas de la casa
Horario de llegada: de las 08:00 a las 22:00.

Most importantly, we ask our guests to be respectful to the locals and to the natural environment in the village.

And with respect to staying at our house, we have a few expectations.
Guests who have enjoyed their time in our house and village are:
•Independent
•Respectful
•Adventurous
•Helpful
•Easygoing

In general we hope for our guests to have peaceful and restful stays, observing the village and scenery.

Our caretaker (Haibo) and cook/cleaner (Xiaomo) are always giving their best efforts to keep our house in great shape and our guests happy. However, this is our home, not a full-service hotel, so please also try to be an independent guest and help keep our place clean.

Enjoy and feel at home!

Laojia 老家

Laojia 老家

Guilin, China · Se registró en Junio de 2012

After graduating in the Netherlands, I (Maarten) decided to move back to China to improve my Mandarin, understanding of Chinese culture and to see if being an entrepreneur is fun. So far so good!
I enjoy places where people can find peace, be creative, study and enjoy nature.
I spend half my time in Shanghai and the other half on the Chinese countryside, where I believe much of China's beauty lies ito people, nature, food and more. It is this beauty that I enjoy sharing, which has lead to the creation of the Laojia 老家 locations.

Friends of Laojia: Haibo, Alice, Eric, Qiaohua, Yongfa, Maarten and many more villagers :)

Feel free to get in touch!
