“Safe, convenient and luxurious vacation rental. Everything you need in one stop”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spent the last week of July 2014 at Daisy's penthouse in Guilin, China. What an unforgettable, amazing experience. This vacation rental has everything you'll need for a relaxing and rejuvenating holiday. Daisy has been in the tourism sector for 15 years in Guilin and knows the ropes. Not only does she rent this wonderful holiday home, she also offers informative, safe and value added tours of the surrounding area. Daisy will give you an honest price and work hard to make sure your trip is everything you want it to be.

Her rental is located on the top floor of an apartment/condo building and its two stories. There is plenty of room for large groups or big families which is HARD to find anywhere in China. The price is unbeatable since you aren't forced to rent 2 hotel rooms to fit your family.

The rough and jagged mountains that make Guilin famous are visible from all the balconies of Daisy's place. She makes a great breakfast - which even my picky little eaters were happy with.

We hired her for 4 days of touring and it was wonderful to be able to custom pick the places we wanted to go and things we wanted to do rather than join a large group. I was very impressed with the van driver Daisy choose for us. He was such a safe driver and I felt confident that he could manage the long drives on sometimes a little scary roads.

She gave us great restaurant advice and made sure we were able to get where we wanted to go. A taxi ride to downtown from Daisy's place is a little far but just a couple bucks.

I would highly highly recommend Daisy's rental to anyone going to Guilin. Also - if her place is already rented - contact her for tours. She's probably the most honest tour guide out there.

To offer guests a nice house and take to my picked restaurants usually make them good boys and girls. But the three teenagers got so exciting after the chicken village and tribe that they rocked the van on the winding way. What should I do? The stored stories and puzzles on my mind work well on them. Finally I was drawn to join their tricks and sneak on their dad. Rod seems rejoicing being a joke butt but spurred to study Chinese hard to fight back one day… Laughter, fun, chill-out, gain knowledge, nice food and bed etc. that is we call a holiday. Thank Rod, Wendy, Bethany, Connie and Bailey to be my guests on Chinese New Year.

“Best Guilin Vacation Choice”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

people found this review helpful

Choosing to stay at this apartment for our stay in Guilin was the best decision we made during our five week trip in China. Daisy and her family made our trip in Guilin comfortable, enjoyable and very memorable. Our family of 7 ( 2 adults and kids aged 18, 15, 11, 11 and 9), really enjoyed the space in this apartment. We loved the breakfast Daisy's husband Song cooked for us every morning too.
Most importantly, we appreciated Daisy's travel help all along the way. Daisy arranged our travel to and from Guilin (train to Guilin and flight from Guilin). We also used her as our travel guide while we were there. Comparing her prices to other trips, I realized that she saved us a lot of money because of her experience and the discounts she was able to get us by being registered as a special travel agent. We especially loved the Dragon Rice Terraces and White Water rafting trip which was the highlight of our whole China vacation. By the way, I found that the advice in the travel books about what we would enjoy in Guilin did not match Daisy's advice. We really didn't enjoy the places the travel books highlighted as much as the ones she suggested. Moreover, nothing could replace the fact that Daisy, her son and husband became our friends during the trip. They spent time showing us around the town and talking to us about China's history and culture. Daisy's son is quite an expert at Chinese history and Daisy's husband is a professor of Chinese Traditional medicine.
On top of everything else, Daisy is a fine businesswoman who handled all of our financial transactions professionally and honestly. It was very helpful to be able to use PayPal for many of our transactions. As a professional reviewer for HubPages, I can honestly say that I have never rated any review as highly as I do this property. If you are traveling to Guilin, you will be very glad you chose to stay at this property.

Very nice and very big place. Our kids loved the music in one of the showers. Very good breakfast cooked by dr. Song and junior Song. Daisy Chan is a proffesional tourist guide too and know the area and history very well. Thank you for making our stay in Gulin pleasurable:-)

“Guilin ... don't miss it”
Reviewed May 30, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The apartment is outside the immediate city where tourists might normally stay. Speaking only English (no Chinese at all) we were at a minor disadvantage locally; however we had the owner’s telephone number and were welcome to call for any need, or to talk to a restaurant to assist us.
We could not locate a English language television news service; we stayed in various hotels in China also that did not offer this service. The main bedroom bed is too firm for Westerners, and this will be changed.
We utilised the services of the owner as a companion/guide, who, when the weather changed drastically, was able to offer acceptable alternative excursions; and was a great help with explaining health needs at a pharmacy.
The owner is a courteous and thoughtful guide; and made our breakfast each day for us. The apartment is a good change from usual hotel accommodation.
Travelling down the Li River .... in flood .... was a wonderful highlight of our time in Guilin

Thanks Bob for your time.
It is very proud to be acknowledged by Australians that I can make solutions over the TELEPHONE in ENGLISH for them.
Whenever recalling the Li river cruise accompany with the Bob’s family in the big flood, I am exciting.
The hard bed which Bob laid on is covered with soft pad now, I will not make the next person sore again :)
The time with the family is joyful and with ease.
