I had the most wonderful time hiking around Wild Homestay for three days. The area was gorgeous and there were lots of trails to explore. Routes are super easy to follow on the Komoot app. The river was perfect for soaking your feet after a long hike. The service at the hotel was great and I loved all the food. The homemade energy bars were delicious too. *Check yourself for ticks! I had one on my leg after a day of hiking.
Wildhomestay is the perfect getaway from Shanghai for nature lovers. The owners have found just the right balance between comfort while experiencing a real remote village nestled in mountains planted with tea bushes. The food was delicious - their all day menu has a nice selection of simple yet tasty dishes and the pre-ordered dinner meals are great. For families with children, the family rooms are perfect. There is also an outdoor playground with a fun water slip and slide. There is a river nearby which is a nice family destination if you don’t want to hike up... There is a really nice national park nearby: Damingshan. It’s a nice 45 minute taxi ride away. The landscape is amazing and it’s possible to go up via gondolas and down via a 300 meter slide. It’s a very nice and fun day out!…
Having lived in Shanghai for many years, it has been extremely challenging to find a weekend getaway to escape all of the hustle and bustle of the big city. Wildhometsay nails it. It is a perfect balance of comfort while still being off the beaten track. We visited in the winter and it was very cozy. Think whiskey by the fire and BBQ bonfires. We cannot recommend this place enough for people who live in the surrounding big cities or for visitors to China looking to find something a little different than the normal day trips or one night trips from Shanghai. We look forward to staying again soon!
The guest house is located just in the borders of traditional hui style village, lying in the valleys with the mountain all around! It is a perfect location to escape from the city for s couple of days and forget about all of the struggles. The host is doing her best to assure the guests with entertainment, great food etc. For our group they have prepared a hiking, swimming in a waterfall with a healthy and tasty lunch in a field, bicycle ride, yoga class and exercises on a roof top with a magnificent view at the entire area! During the evening we had a super tasty bbq and a bu ch of healthy snacks, and on the next day home made noodles... best noodles ever!! Really highly recommended!!
If you want a remote nature getaway away from the tourist crowds of huangshan in an authentic chinese village, then this is it! We came for 4 days to cycle & hike- tons of great routes for exploring. It's not super easy to get to but that's the point! The layout/space of the rooms were comfortable and spacious, the food is simple but tasty (although if you are a picky eater or have really specific dining habits, then you may need to supplement). Every day for breakfast, they try to give you something a bit different and there are various dinner options- hot pot/bbq/farmers dinner. Staff are helpful!
We had a terrific stay at Wildhomestay during the October holiday! 23 friends enjoying good food, beautifully designed rooms, warm welcome, high quality bikes and many well priced drinks :-)). The children loved the private attic room for gaming and splashed away on the water slide. Pigs, dog and cats around made it even more fun.
Simply great place. Ideal destination to avoid crowds (wasn't packed even during the Golden week), takes only 4,5 hours to reach from Shanghai by public bus. Neat and stylish rooms, perfect service, owners and stuff are always glad to provide assistance and answer the questions. Endless tracking and cycling options, downloadable maps. If you want to support local communities, enjoy quietness and homely atmosphere that's a perfect choice.
This was my second visit to Wildhomestay in a few months and i have to say both times were absolutely perfect. Although its located pretty remotely the accommodation is very nice and comfortable. Moreover the owners Qing and Justin are super nice and helpful. Top that off with very tasty meals and a gorgeous surrounding (walking, hiking, running, road- and mountain biking) and you've got yourself a perfect get-away in my opinion. Definitely recommend!
Great weekend with friends in the small village of deep mountains in Anhui. Back to the nature, far away from the noisy of city. Food also healthy and delicious. rooms are clean but a little bit small. generally, very worth to recommend and visit again!!
This is a wonderful place, hidden away in rural and isolated Anhui province it provides a level of comfort and quality of accommodation that I have yet to experience in rural China. The rooms are decorated simply and stylishly, the beds are very comfortable, the bathrooms are well appointed and modern. The food served at Wildhomestay is excellent. Overall it is Chinese cuisine and it is some of the lightest, freshest and least greasy Chinese food I've had in rural China, the dumplings were truly delicious! Even the coffee is really good! We used the property as a base to go hiking and mountain biking (borrowed from the Wildhomestay) and swimming in the rivers. I have no fault with this trip, the accommodation, food or the staff. Everything was perfect.
