Great Host and lovely appartment as per the advertising . Ka Kee host you more like a B&B and great location !! Thank you
Ka Kee's apartment is beautiful and Ka Kee is a wonderful host. I instantly felt at home, and my only regret i not being able to stay longer.
The view from the balcony is spectacular and everything is within walking distance. Her dog is friendly, the breakfast delicious and Ka Kee is great conversation and full of good advice.
I highly recommend this accommodation.
It is a wonderful experience to meet Ka Kee in person and live in her home, she is such a charming woman with sunshine smile, warm heart, artistic temperament, wish her all the best, I already miss her even I just say goodbye to her yesterday!
Her home locates in mid-levels, one of the best area of HK，just opposite the Hongkong park and vA!(the address was cassels block before), beautiful view and fresh air, I also enjoyed her paint, play with dog, talk with her housekeep...I think she has very good taste with decoration and quite understanding with our world and earth.
Not only a stay, have a try! One of an Ace host you expect to meet, to know more.
Ka Kee was the most incredible host I could ask for! She let me check in early the first morning I got there and immediately made me feel at home. She was unbelievably helpful not only with suggestions of places to go and things to do but also with helping me get there and making sure I had the best trip possible. The location was exactly as described. Everything (especially Ka Kee) exceeding my already high expectations! Thanks again for the most memorable experience in Hong Kong.
Ka kee is a super host. She is kind, knowledgeable, and cool to talk with. The room is actually much better and spacious than expected. Thank you!
This was my first airbnb experience and it was a hit! Upon my arrival Ka Kee made me feel comfortable instantly. She is offering a beautiful and well-kept homestay in a perfect surrounding. Every day I enjoyed my breakfast with a panoramic view on the balcony. I never missed a "real" hotel. My room was nice and big enough for me, the bed was cosy. It was cleaned daily by Joyce, a cheerful and reliable person who - like Ka Kee - is always prepared to help. I even had my own bathroom. Ka Kee is the most perfect and warm-hearted host you can imagine. You can enjoy as much privacy as you want but whenever you like to have a chat or get recommendations for sightseeing and events, Ka Kee is there for you. I very much appreciated her input which made my Hong Kong holidays unique. And although she is very busy, she still found time and energy to show me exciting places or go out with me. Thank you so much!
I'm a local Chinese, but I'm more a global person due to my extensive travel and living abroad experience. I live a very full and rich life. I am an art consultant and a gallery owner. I paint, write and study. I am knowledgeable with both ancient Chinese and local colonial history. The reason I become a host is to meet people from all over the world. Meeting different people, learning their cultures, and listening to their life stories humble and enrich me. Similarly, I wish my guests can take back with them a memorable home-stay experience and a better understanding of my culture and my part of the world. My favourite cities are New York, Melbourne, Istanbul, and Hong Kong. I lived in Bangkok for 8 years, and Cape Town for 2 and half years. I speak fluent English, Cantonese, Mandarin and some Thai. I'm a spiritual person. Every person that comes into my life has a very special reason and meaning, and I cherish this universal truth.
