We had a great stay at Helen's place. Pretty close to Laoshan national park, there's a bus that goes the whole way. Had some issues finding the place but found it with the help of some friendly locals. It's just next to Yingliang Supermarket in Beitocun. Apple maps has directions from Qingdao. The place is nicely renovated and has a nice outdoor patio area. When we where there we took care of her dogs.
