This is a lovely escape from the maelstrom of Hong Kong Island. B&B in country house with large garden and idyllic mountain scenery nestling in the Tai O valley towards the tail end of Lantau Island.
Tai O, still known as the “Venice of Hong Kong” is a scenic gemstone and this country home is set in the middle of lush greenery, a peaceful haven for those looking to enjoy the great outdoors and get back in touch with nature.
Double bedroom with large on-suite bathroom and own balcony looking out onto the private garden.
The house is just 10mins walk from the Tai O fishing village where there are a number of fresh fish and vegetarian restaurants. It is just 30 minutes bus ride from both Mui Wo pier and from Tung Chung MTR station. Easy access to Hong Kong Central, Disneyland, Discovery Bay, the Trappist Haven Monestry at Tai Shui Hang, Tung Chung Fort, Ngong Ping Plateau, which features the 85-foot high ‘Giant Buddha’ and the Po Lin Monastery.
This is a great opportunity for you to hike, sightsee, write your novel, swim in the beautiful beaches of Lantau, live well, eat well and sleep well, while still enjoying all of what Hong Kong has to offer.
Looking forward to having you stay!
This is a lovely place to stay in a quiet location completely different from HK's central districts. We wanted to enjoy some natural beauty and peace and found both in abundance. The hosts were exceptionally kind to us, encouraging us to make full use of a large house and doing whatever they could to make us feel at home and at ease in it, without imposing on our privacy. We would gladly stay there again.
Gaebriella and Oliver were excellent hosts and their house is absolutely fantastic! It is very secluded, but within easy walking distance of Tai O. This is the perfect place to get away from the craziness of the city and enjoy the peaceful countryside of Lantau. We felt completely at ease in their gorgeous home and the accommodations were exceptionally clean. Gaebriella and Oliver were eager to answer any questions we had and really made us feel at home. We were a bit hesitant to book a room rather than an entire apartment, but the layout of the house is very conducive to privacy and Gaebriella and Oliver were only home a few hours a day. (plus the private bathroom is huge!)
The house itself is huge by Hong Kong standards and Gaebriella and Oliver were quick to let us know that we were free to use their excellent kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed lounging in the downstairs sitting area to watch the docile cows amble past the garden. Breakfast was simple, but delicious and healthy. They also have a tremendous collection of movies and we spent our evenings in the upstairs parlor watching a few of our selections on their gargantuan flat screen tv. I really can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our experience and would give them six stars if we could. Thanks for being such great hosts Gaebriella and Oliver!
I'm in Thailand for the new year vacation but still cannot forget the great experience I had staying with Gaebriella and Oliver in their lovely house at Tai O, Hong Kong.
It brought me a brand new understanding on natural beauty of Hong Kong. All the description about the house is true. And the actual feeling of living, standing, walking in and around the house is absolutely more incredible than the written.
I did go to central for a lunch appointment but in the afternoon just can't wait to come back to my Tai O house. Yes my Tai O, do feel it yourself!

Gaebriella’s house is great ; comfortable, tidy, spacious, bright, with a lovely veranda and terrace. Garbriella’s son was very welcoming and made us feel at home. Highly recommend!
Staying at Gaebriella house was a wonderful experience! The house is beautiful and comfortable, the location is nice and quiet. It was so relaxing after downtown Hong Kong, where we felt so isolated from the outdoors. Gaebriella was a most welcoming and helpful host.
The only drawback was the long bus rides, made me motion sick.
Really nice place to get rid of the hustle and bustle Hong Kong life. We spent a great morning with the fresh breakfast and nice view in the garden. Its easy to get into Tai O village (only 10mins walk) but we cant see any tall buildings,roads and cars from the house. It reminds me the life in europe ! The host suggests us a route to hike so that we enjoyed great sunset view in the second day in Tai O. Definitely will go again in the future!
A perfect ending to my first visit to Hong Kong. I wanted a contrast to my time in the city, and Gaebriella's place fit the bill to a tee. Her house is set off from the main road (though already with relatively little traffic -- the best were the cows in the morning -- but a short walk into the fishing village of Tai O) and is utterly charming! The guest bedroom and en suite were serenely decorated. I wish I'd had more time to sit and, through the wall of windows at the foot of the bed, watch the rising sun light the front yard and surrounding hills. I also wished I'd had more time to explore Tai O (don't arrive after dark and leave first thing in the morning!). And to meet Gaebriella. Still in her absence I was in good hands, and communication was superlative from start to finish. Recommended!
Wonderful place and incredibly nice host. Room perfectly clean, big bathroom, beautiful place. Definitely recommended.
We had a perfect experience with our stay in Tai O. If you are looking for a tranquil and peaceful place in busy Hong Kong this is the perfect place to stay. Easy to explore from here what Lantau Island has to offer and still close enough to Central Hong Kong. Gaebriella is a lovely person and the perfect host. We couldn't have been happier.
Perfect hosts in a perfect home, we want to come back as soon as possible!
