This self contained house is right in the middle of Shek O and just a stones throw from the big beach. The comfortable double bedroom will sleep 2 adults and downstairs at least 2 more (there is a fold out sofa downstairs as well as a blow up bed provided).
The comfortable roof with outside furniture and shade is a great place to while away the evenings and there is even a view of the sea!
Please no smoking indoors as our place is normally home to a baby. Otherwise we advise you to keep the fridge full of cold beers and chill out on the roof.
Be respectful of neighbours with your stereo and general rules of good etiquette apply.
We were happy to stay here.
It was clean, comfy, and in the kitchen basically everything you'll need is there. The 'starters' we were told about & provided in the fridge were also of good use ;) I slept really well; please note if you are a taller person (>1.70m) you might have some space issues on the fold-out couch downstairs.
For the quiet hours, there's a vast selection of good books available (definitely a bonus).
Shek O itself is small and peaceful; and good to reach with two buses (No 9 and the mini/light bus) or by taxi during the night. And we can definitely recommend the 'Happy Garden' (opposite the parking lot) restaurant for both food and the very friendly people running it; its always busy there with locals for a reason!
So Amanda, thank you & your neighbor for hosting & helping us! Its a nice place to rest when returning from the bustling city.
Amanda's house was great for a Christmas vacation far away from the bustle of the city. Located near the Dragon's back trail and Shek O beach, we were privileged to be able to be part of the Shek O community if only for a few days.
Amanda was also a great host, constantly checking to ensure that the key handover went well, and even emailing while on Christmas vacation to make sure everything is ok with us. She left us heaters, bread, juice and even milk, which was such a sweet gesture and most appreciated.
Although the house is a little far from the city (therefore not ideal if you intend to shop or go disneyland), the space you get in return makes the journey to Shek O worthwhile.
Her house has almost everything you need and is great for a family with kids (the washer was a lifesaver!) My son was so delighted with the beach too! Thanks Amanda, for sharing that lovely village with us!
