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:

He did. He met us at the property and showed us around. It helped up get settled in a new city.
Location is brilliant, short walk to Central Mtr and closer to lkf and soho. Basics are present, Brendan was kind enough to brief us about the place but was bumped as early check in was not possible. The place is tiny (as with most Hk apartments), if u have large luggages it will occupy the entire living space. pick this place if you're wanna experience the city and be in the heart of it.
The apartment is very small the pictures were taken using a wire angled lens. The apartment is very small!
Very accommodative and friendly host who helped us find our way to the apartment and ensured that we are well aware to the neighborhood. Amenities are all good and working. Location is right in the middle of Central of walking distance to Central, HK station, IFC and LKF.
This apartment was in an exellent location in central, we managed to walk almost everywhere. 3rd floor walk up with 2 double beds in 2 bedrooms, kept very clean. Check in and out were quick and fuss-free.
First and foremost this was a great apartment and worked really well. The interior was very clean and Brendan's mom made sure we were settled in before leaving us. The area is super busy and truely "downtown", so with our 2 young kids it was difficult finding space for them to run around. But for older kids and adults it was perfect and near lots of good restaurants. It is a 5 min walk to Central MTR station which is connected to the Hong Kong MTR station, so once you're underground you can make your way to either one easily. This was perfect since the airport express was litterally 26 min direct and getting to Disneyland was less than an hour including the transfers.
The apartment has all amenities you need and well secured. They are constantly updating items around the house so don't expect it to be exactly like the pictures. It has A/C in the rooms and it felt great. Walking up 4 flights of stairs was not a big deal most of the time, but after a long day we had some challenges getting a stroller with 2 sleeping kids up. The entry to the apartment is down a dingy looking ally which made me nervous at first, but after a few days I found it was the back side of the Centre Building where most of the workers took their brakes and also a nice place for breakfast in the morning.
Overall it is a great, safe, clean, inexpensive apartment and we loved the feeling of it. The host was great and his mom gave us great advice and tips when we arrived. The location is very busy, but of course you are in the middle of Hong Kong Island.
Brendan was a great host! Although we never met, he accommodated my friends and I very well. In the middle of our stay I emailed him to see if there was a dryer in the house, he responded in a timely manner and let me know where it was. The location was perfect for our nightlife excursions. (Right in the heart of HK!) I look forward to renting out this place again!

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!
