We have a large detached home available from mid-June to late July each summer. The home is located in the Shunyi suburb of Beijing. This is a popular area for Western expats and there are many gated communities nearby. We live in the Capital Paradise neighborhood, which is located about 15 minutes from the Beijing airport and about 30-45 minutes to the Forbidden City. We are located in the Northeast quadrant of Beijing, on your way to the Great Wall. There is a subway stop approx. 2 km from the house. .

The home is quite large, approx. 3000+ square feet. It is fully stocked. We have a housekeeper that comes 3 times during the week (more if you need). In the neighborhood there is a community clubhouse with tennis courts and swimming pool.
