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!
Gaebriella's house is the perfect place to stay at if you are looking for a relaxing and natural environment, with trees, birds, and a river nearby. The fishing village Tai O is not far either to try great local food!
We enjoyed our stay to all its extent, feeling very comfortable and welcome; the spaces are enjoyable and the house has all the facilities you need. The bus routes in Lantau Island and a book describing hiking trails all around Hong Kong came in handy to discover different places in the islands. Oliver is very hospitable and can help you with any question you might have.
Overall, an excellent place to stay at, highly recommended!
We are so happy to stay in this lovely country house with Gabriella and Oliver. Beautiful garden just near the mountain, we can hear birds singing every sunny morning! Just come and enjoy such a beautiful and peaceful place! ( lͦeͦtͦ'sͦ sͦtͦaͦrͦtͦ fͦrͦoͦmͦ hͦeͦrͦeͦ~)H҉A҉P҉P҉Y҉ N҉E҉W҉ Y҉E҉A҉R҉
It was very restful staying at Gaebriella's place. Her clear directions make it easy to find the house, which is beside a river, set just a little back from the main Tai O Road. The house is in a peaceful garden against a backdrop of Lantau's hills. The floor-to-ceiling windows of its spacious rooms offer uninterrupted views of the greenery outside. It is so quiet that you can hear birdsong even in the late mornings. Walking to dinner, a distance of about 300m to Tai O's seafood cafes, you would probably be accompanied by wild cows on their evening stroll in the neighbourhood. Gaebriella and her son Oliver are hospitable, unassuming hosts, allowing guests the run of the common areas in the house while they worked hard in the garden. I look forward to my next stay, hopefully soon.
Great place n location if u wanna get away from noise n crowded shopping area.
We had a very nice stay at Gaebriella's ; the house and the garden are spacious and well maintained, just like the bedroom. Though we saw her only one evening, Gaebriella welcomed us warmly and is a very attentive host.
The village nearby is absolutely charming, with its fish market and small streets. You can enjoy a boat tour to see the pink dolphins there (and we actually saw them!); it may be a tourist attraction, but it's still very fun. And there are also several buses, among which one that can take you to another local attraction, the Big Buddha, from where you can hike a little bit.
I can only recommend this place : the house, the room, the neighborhood, everything was perfect.
During the stay my partner and i experienced simpleness and calmness, which enabled us to escape all worries and stresses of city life. The house was marvelous with a beautiful garden, and our room was spacious and comfortable. Just simply grabbed a seat in the balcony, then we can enjoy the natural of beauty from the surrounding mountains.
Tai O fishing village was nearby the house with just 15 minutes walking distance. We loved to walk around the village to discover more of it. When sunset we stayed at Tai O pier and enjoyed the remaining glow of the day. When the darkness came, it was amazing to see numerous stars over sky. Sounds of wave were clearer and seem like a live musical show. Everything became timeless and that unique experience was so memorable for us.
Moreover, we appreciated the breakfast offered, the food were fresh and delicious. Also, we especially thanks to Gaebriella for lending us the tools to do clams fishing in Pui O beach. It such a great weekend with the host family, we definitely will come again.
It was more than we expected. evrything is absolutely perfect, the host, the house, the garden, the fishing village ! We loved it and we will come back soon for sure , thank you again for this amazing we :)

I would be delighted to have you stay at my place and share the delight of my hideaway with you. You will find it very peaceful here and virtually no disturbance except perhaps for the cows. I spend much of my time outdoors hiking the hills or swimming in the ocean or in the garden tending to the vegetables and plants. In the evening times I sometimes have dinner by the outdoor fireplace or read quietly in the lounge on the roof looking out to the hillsides.
