“Robbie & JinR were friendly hosts during our hosted points swap for our family of five, and their attractive apartment couldn't have been better placed for exploring Beijing. They also kindly made arrangements for us to visit the Great Wall with a family member, who took the very best care of us. Overall we had a great time in Beijing, although we struggled to find where to buy food, or an affordable restaurant with English menus. ”

About our home
Large designer family duplex penthouse apartment in vibrant international and embassy district of Beijing.
Lots of international and local shopping, markets, restaurants, hotels. Lively and bustling. Well located for subways, parks, downtown and airport access.
Mostly we enjoy doing "hosted" swaps, meaning we offer you one or two separate bedrooms and bathroom and a leisurely breakfast daily, while we are at home also, like a B&B stay. Completely comfortable with enough privacy for you but you have the added benefit of meeting us "locals" and we can give you advice on you plans and getting around (not always easy for newcomers!) We like this as we get to meet new friends from around the world and feel you also have a more "connected" stay.
We have a live in maid (Aiyi in Chinese) available to cook and clean etc. You can of course be a VIP guest at our own restaurant and contemporary Chinese cultural centre GREEN T. HOUSE (green-t-house.com).
This is all inclusive for the listed 300pts per night and we accept a minimum 3 night stay.

“Robbie's and JinR's home was beautifully appointed. The pictures of the living room, sitting area, and Master bedroom are beautifully represented and accurate. We however did not think to ask what the guest bedroom looked like and, for us, it was small and the bed was on the floor. We are not "old" but for us, it was not comfortable. We recommended to Robbie to have photos clearly showing the guests quarters. On other notes, we had great conversations with JinR and Robbie...very interesting people. it's always interesting to meet home exchangers.”
“Robbie and JinR were the most accommodating hosts I could imagine. They made our Beijing stay 'a once in a lifetime experience' Their home is a blend of east and west sophistication and from the 30th floor a panoramic view of the city. Very central location, easy for daytrips to galleries, historic sites and shopping areas. the breakfast in the morning was stunning and their conversation and company enthralling as was their teahouse and their generosity terry and christine byron bay ”
“Our family stayed in this beautiful 2 floors condo for 3 nights in March 2016. Robbie and his family were very nice and helpful, especially to organize our one day trip to the Great Wall, great advices. Kids really appreciate the good homemade breakfasts they served us in the mornings. Also, the visit of their incredible designed restaurant (The Green-T House) were a highlight and a pleaure for the eyes... Thanks again to all the family to have welcomed our family (in the middle of the night).”
“Our experience in Robbie&JinR home has been awesome! In our case we arranged to be at their place visiting Beijing while they where living there also. the place is big enough to do so. They were extremely nice with us, helping to arrange our visits, etc. They are very open, polite and easygoing. The condominium is very well designed, modern and cozy at the same time; absolutely unique. Don´t miss their sophisticated Chinese restaurant -Green T House-. It´s very nice to have new friends in China. We hope they will visit us in Spain very soon! ”
“An extraordinary oasis of modern Chinese design and great taste in the hustle and bustle of Beijing. Robbie and JinR were fabulous hosts, helped arrange a car and driver as needed, great restaurant suggestions both near the apartment and around Beijing not to mention their own highly rated Green T House. They gave us a glimpse into everyday life in this fascinating fast changing city. Their live-in helper is an amazing cook, we were greeted with fresh baked dumplings and coffee for breakfast to get us started. So glad we said yes to a Point swap a year ago when Robbie and JinR stayed in our Sydney home. At that time we did not know if we would be able to find a mutually convenient time to swap. Now a year on we are able to repay the points and enjoy this very unique experience.”
