This Airbnb is located on the hillside of Gem mountain. It's my working studio . There's a big yard with lots of wild plants. I wanna share with you the happiness of BACK TO GEM MOUNTAIN !

The space
This area used to be a residential area of the provincial government in 1980s. Most of the neighbors are retired officials . Well, at the foot of the mountain , there still lives Pres-Xi's mother-in-law. It's very local and safe here .

You may take a promenade over the ridge line to see the sunrise and sunset of the lake.
There are many ways to play in Hangzhou, but the best way to spend your summer days here is to get up early and go to the temple, to walk around in the bamboo forests and find a small cafe to do nothing. It's also good to walk on Su causeway after 10p.m. It's quiet and you'll meet some cute feline friends.

It's also very beautiful in winter days, like returning to the capital of Song Dynasty for a moment. If you'd like to, you may go for a walk in the snow with your friends at midnight. The West Lake is tranquil while surrounded by the woods. Having a snow-fight or rolling on the grass slowly where no one has stepped on. You'll hear the pine branches smashed down by the snow. Go to find a warm bar on your way home. You will enjoy such kinda way of living in Hangzhou I guess .

Hi I’m Ningyi. I am originally from China and was lucky enough to travel around the world . I am one of Airbnb Host Advisory Board members as well as Community Leader of Airbnb in Hangzhou. If you have any question abt local life here, pls feel free to ask. When I grow up I want to be a chef or at least own a small bistro where I can cook for all types of people. The bnb experience in South Europe had left me a lot of good memories, and that's why i'm being a host now : ) I have a Siam and a Bengal at home , and an Orange cat in our studio . Welcome to my place ~ LGBT Friendly Hi你好,我叫Ningyi,是爱彼迎全球房东顾问委员会HAB成员和杭州的社区小队长。 这些年游走世界各地的艺穗节、美术馆、艺术工作室和Airbnb,让我有幸能与很多出色的人们共事,也让我拥有5年独立策展的工作机遇。我希望激发大家的灵感和动力,去共建一个多元、开放、友善的城市社区。尊重每一个独立的个体,促进大家共享有意义的生活经历。 关于爱好的话,我特别喜欢戏剧,立志每年刷一个戏剧节,所以经常出没在剧场,有同好者可以一起勾搭;二是园艺,宝石山的工作室里有大院子,新家有一个想打造成植物园的大阳台,欢迎来一起折腾;我7岁习画,近年在学习白描和唐卡,家里有宣纸扇面工作室有油画布,你都可以使用。2019年夏天迷上滑板, 如果你带板子来玩的话,可以一起约刷杭州顶配路线鸭! Airbnb旅行五年, 走过很多地方。我意识到家它并不一定是四四方方的房子,它也可以是圆顶帐篷、房车、山林里的小木屋、需要盖6层毛毯的洞穴… 而此刻的家人,可能是音乐家、诗人、电影导演、弗拉门戈舞者、大学退休的生物系教授、岛上的美食家... 他们是我珍贵的旅行记忆。2015年底,一回国我就把家门敞开了。希望这一段共同生活,也能成为你或会记起的杭州回忆。 我有五只猫:栗酱5岁了,住在新家;宝石山上的院子里住着橘姐和她的三个孩子。 山下的家不在了,山上的工作室偶尔会开放作为Airbnb。希望每个来山上生活的小伙伴都有最美好的回忆 ! LGBT友好 : )
