20 MINUTES FROM HK DISNEY
One Parkvale has been designed and renovated to the highest standard. The first thing you will probably notice about this bright, comfortable, contemporary home is the natural oak wall that runs the length of the apartment - with doorways to both bedrooms and the bathroom elegantly concealed along its path. With its long galley kitchen, well defined living and dining spaces, and, two bedrooms the apartment has bags of space for you to enjoy.
The long galley kitchen is fitted with a large Siemens Fridge / Freezer, Siemens washer / dryer, Smeg Induction Hob (we supply all the pots, pans and utensils you'll need) and Siemens built in oven. There's lots of cupboard space too.
The living room comes with a fun Egg chair, a set of wooden coffee tables, a large designer sofa which folds down into a comfy flat double bed. For your entertainment, there's the latest 48" flat screen TV (2D and 3D) from Sony, Blue Ray DVD player, Apple TV plus an apple mac mini. The TV is internet enabled too. Naturally, we offer high speed internet connection and WiFi included in the rental price.
The master bedroom has a Queen size bed and plenty of wardrobe space (the built in wardrobe occupies the length of an entire wall).
The second bedroom is a flexible space: with the two large doors closed, it's a normal bedroom space sleeping one (with a really comfy foldaway single bed); or, with the big doors open, it can be used as an extension to the already generous living space (possibly as an office). So, if you're a single person (or couple) you can choose to maximise the living space by leaving the double doors open (doing so lets in even more daylight).
The cosy, contemporary bathroom features an invigorating shower, towel heater, sink with cabinet and large wall mounted mirror cabinet.
Interaction with Guests
HELP IS ALWAYS AT HAND
My family and I live two minutes away from the apartment and are happy to whiz around should anything need fixing during your stay. We'll also meet you when you arrive to make sure you can work everything in the apartment and ensure that you settle in with the minimum of fuss. Please feel free to contact us during your stay should you need any information about life in Discovery Bay and things to do in Hong Kong.
BEST PLACE TO LIVE IN HONG KONG
Located on Lantau Island, the residential resort of Discovery Bay is a beautiful and healthy place to live. We have a fabulous beach (which is host to lots of fun beach sports and a paddling / boating club) and we are surrounded by some of the most breathtaking natural scenery in Hong Kong. The rolling hills and peaks of Lantau Island are easily accessed from Discovery Bay (by foot or by bike) and provide variable levels of challenge - starting from a gentle walk to a 100km trail rising up at its peak to one kilometre above sea level. In fact, you can start out on a walk or bicycle ride from outside your front door.
At the centre of Discovery Bay is The Plaza - which is home to loads of shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, two doctors' surgeries, a book store, hairdressers and much more bedsides. Since your apartment is just a minute's walk from the Plaza, it's easy to pop in and out as you wish.
For those with children, there's plenty of schools and kindergartens in Discovery Bay. There's also loads of playgrounds, organised activities for kids, sports facilities and clubs (football, rugby, tennis and cricket to name a few).

DISCOVERY BAY IS EASY TO GET AROUND
Getting around Discovery Bay is quick and easy. First, as mentioned, the flat is so close to the Ferry, and all the shops in the Palza, that you need only walk. For other locations in Discovery Bay (such as the North Plaza or Marina Club) you may order a local taxi service, use one of the many buses or a bicycle (DB has very few cars, so the road system is pretty safe and pleasant to use).
LANTAU ISLAND AND OTHER ATTRACTIONS
It's easy to get to other wonderful spots in Lantau Island such as the charming beach village of Mui Wo. Either hop on an inter-island ferry, take a bus via Tung Chung or walk (it takes around 40 minutes). There another great beach at Cheung Sha (same route as above but with added taxi ride to the beach) with two or three excellent restaurants.
No smoking inside the apartment (you can pop outside very easily though). The apartment is in a quiet residential low rise, so please keep noise to normal levels.
About the Host, Andrew
