Interaction with Guests
As much as possible or invisible if you want. I will try to meet with arriving guests and show them the area. Whenever guests need information or recommendations, I am always available via messaging or phone.
Central MTR is 5 min walk away.
Trams, buses, mini buses, taxis are all just a stone's throw away to get you all throughout Hong Kong. You couldn't ask for a more convenient location.
Other Things to Note
Once you arrive in Hong Kong, everything is quite simple and all starts with a call from the FREE phones at the airport located in the hall immediately after you pass through baggage customs. There is also a Visitors Center there if you would like to pick up some maps, local travel guides, etc. to read on your way to the apartment. If you need a local SIM card, there is a 7-11 in the middle section of the main arrival hall where they see all types of SIM cards, I usually prefer the PCCW brand as it is the larges local operator.
This is a Strictly NON SMOKING Flat.
UPON ARRIVAL AT PROPERTY, ALL GUESTS MUST WAIT FOR ME AT THE FRONT GATE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING. BUILDING RESIDENTS WILL COMPLAIN TO PROPERTY MANAGEMENT IF THE LOBBY AREA INSIDE BUILDING IS BLOCKED. THANKS FOR YOUR KIND UNDERSTANDING FOR AN ENJOYABLE STAY.
Check in time is AFTER 12:30 pm. Make sure to contact us by phone at least 30 minutes prior to arrival such that we can meet you at the flat to hand you the keys and acquaint you to the surroundings. As this is a family business, please try your best to arrive at the apartment as early as possible. After 11:30pm as transport to the apartment is limited for us, we have to charge HKD150 to cover our taxi transport cost to and from the apartment. We are generally exhausted at the end of the day and we really would rather you arrive early and not have to charge this.
Guests must wait for us OUTSIDE the building upon arrival and not enter the building without us as this causes unnecessary misunderstandings with the property management and residents of the buildings.
Check out time is STRICT at 11:00 am. NO EXCEPTIONS or you will be charged for an extra full day. Our cleaning crew will arrive at 11:00 am to service the flat for the next guest, thanks for your cooperation.
Please help us save the environment by turning off electrical appliances when leaving the apartment or not using them.
Water heater needs to be turned off when not using. If it breaks due to prolonged time left on, you will not have any hot water for your stay and will be subject to expensive repair charges.
In the case that you have an evening departure flight:
Please note that you can check in your luggage at anytime during the same day as your flight at the Hong Kong Station Airport Express, which is only a 5 minute taxi or bus ride from the apartment. That way you would be free to explore the city on your last day, not having to worry about your luggage or rushing to the airport since you have already checked in, you will not have to be at the airport as early as everyone else.
All airlines flying from Hong Kong airport offer In Town check in, EXCEPT the following:

My three friends and I really liked Brend's apartment! We stayed for three nights, and after a tiny bout of miscommunication in the beginning (completely my fault), the rest of our nights went very smoothly. The location was very close to central and close to bakeries, a 7/11, etc. It is quite small for four people when utilizing the pull-out couch, but the photos completely do the apartment justice. The AC and Wifi both worked perfectly. A few small things about the apartment to be noted: it would have been nice to have a few more rolls of toilet paper, and while the apartment itself was very clean, the stairway leading to the apartment was a tad dirty. Otherwise, we highly recommend the apartment -- especially when on a budget and looking for a central location!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Brend's apartment. The apartment matched my expectations - extremely convenient, clean and spacious in HK housing terms . Highly recommended!
It is very nice to stay in HK. Brend is so nice and kind!
Truly good located, very convenient for a trip in HK. You could walk to Midlevel, Soho, Lankwaifong very heart of the HK.
It was really nice staying in this flat. Brendon and his brother were very friendly and helpful in all sense. Appt is just in the heart of city....in very first look it looked very tiny but after a day we got used to... Everything is near by the appt 7/11, Welcome, MTR, wet market, hollywood street, Ferry terminal...there are so many... evening you can just come out of house and start walking in any direction....
Brend was flexible with our travel plans and the flat was in a great location and as described in the description.
The house is located in Central, especially right beside of the mid-level escalator. I love the place because I could use mid-level escalator and visit Soho whenever I wanted to. Brendan's brother Jackson welcomed us and was so kind. He cared for our comfort and let us know the location and nearby stores. I visited Hongkong on New year's week so many restaurants were closed. Jackson introduced some nice restaurants for us. The house was small but it was as same as the photo. We, four people, could take a hot-water shower and sleep on a nice, cozy bed. All the facilities were ready so I think that others can use the house very conveniently. I recommend this house to people who want to feel the center of Hongkong not as a traveler but as a local.

About the Host, Brend
I was born in California and raised in Hong Kong. Went to college in the states and returned to Hong Kong a few years ago. I absolutely love travelling around the region but Hong Kong has always welcomed me home and I look forward to showing off my home town and sharing all the little insights and local specialities with all my guests!
One of the best Chinese style Roasted BBQ chains in Hong Kong, a Char Siu rice from here is a staple for many Hong Kongers. Menus in English and Japanese with photos, a great place for a good meal
The best bars in Hong Kong’s Lan Kwai Fong district are some of the best in Asia and night owls will find b/t downdirty pubs to the continents best nightclubs. It’s definitely Hong Kong’s playground九如坊 Hong Kong Hong Kong Island
