The moment you enter my flat on the 45th floor of this well-managed, conveniently located building you will know that you made the right choice. The views will astound you. The interior is tastefully decorated and offers all modern amenities.
This flat is conveniently located in Sai Ying Pun (near Sheungwan and Central).
It is tastefully renovated and includes
- an open kitchen, with 3-in-1 oven, electric burner, refrigerator with freezer, and other modern kitchen appliances.
- one bedroom with built-in full king sized bed occupying the entire bedroom with fantastic view of the harbour.
- large flat screen TV on a wall mount for viewing from the living room or bedroom, NOW Broadband, Apple TV, Karaoke machine, DVD player.
- Wi-fi, iMac, color printer/copier/scanner.
It is on the 45 floor of a relatively new building (Princeton Tower) and has a fantastic view of the harbor.
It is near the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park which has a beautiful soccer/football pitch, squash courts and olympic size swimming pool. If you enjoy football, you can join (website hidden) for nearby matches. There is a small gym on ground level.
The door has a biometric lock with a password combination that I can provide you to enter the flat.
My helper Vicky lives nearby and can assist if any issues arise during your stay. I will provide you with her number before your stay.
All of the flat and the building gym.
Interaction with Guests
My property manager Vicky is in Hong Kong and will greet the guests and introduce them to the flat and answer any questions or try her best to solve any issues that may arise during their stay. I am also available to answer any questions or resolve any issues that guests may encounter.
I love my neighborhood because while the street level offers all the sights and sounds of authentic Hong Kong, you enter my building and are transported into a private sanctuary that is removed from the hustle and bustle. My flat is within walking distance (for me) of Central and SoHo and Lankuaifong, and morning runs or hikes up to and around the Peak are fantastic. The end of Hollywood Road is right above my flat and there are an increasing number of good restaurants and bars on this end of Hollywood Road.
My building is right above the new Sai Ying Pun MTR station which is due for completion this year. (Fingers crossed!) The closest MTR station is only a 10 minute walk in the meantime. Many public buses and minibuses and the tram stop right in front of my building. Hailing a taxi is fairly easy. Try walking to Queens Road in front of Queens Terrace if you are heading up Hollywood Road. The Macau Ferry terminal is also within walking distance.
Please be respectful of my flat. It is my house and I am renting it out while I travel. Please just look after it like your own.
No smoking and no pets.
If you must smoke, please smoke outside on the balcony with the doors closed.
Do not throw any items over the balcony including cigarette butts.
Please do not drink or eat anything on the sofa that may leave a stain. Please do not scratch the stove top with abrasive materials. Please deposit the garbage into the can in the stairwell during your stay and upon check out.
My helper is in Hong Kong to help with any issues that may arise and I will provide you with her contact information upon acceptance of your booking.
I ask for a $30 cleaning fee. If you would like to arrange for my helper to come clean during your stay, please make the necessary arrangements with her directly. When I stay there, I have her come only once a week so I would think that should be sufficient.
I ask for a $300 deposit. This is returned in full on departure provided there is no damage.
If a guest stays for 1 week or more, the guest agrees to have the flat cleaned by my property manager Vicky or her designated cleaner at least once during their stay at their own cost and at Vicky's current hourly rate of $60.
If a guest loses the access card for the side door to the building, I will charge the guest $65 from their security deposit to cover the costs and time involved in obtaining a new card.
Loved the place and the location. It is exactly as described in the words and pictures on the airbnb site. Vicky was very helpful and understanding when our flight was delayed and we arrived late. Place is new and clean - modern, and the views from the bedroom and living room were as spectacular as hoped for. Will stay there every time if it's available.
We really enjoyed being at Matt's flat. It was everything the listing said it would be including the the fabulous harbor view. The neighborhood is our favorite location to stay in Hong Kong.....walkable, easy access to the tram and great restaurants. We had a small problem during our stay which Matt personally resolved in a very professional manner. We've already recommended the listing to other people.
Great stay, Matt. Loved the apartment and the building in a more typically Chinese neighborhood than Central might have been but close by foot and tram. Place was crisp and clean with a great view of course. We struggled to figure out the hot water till we connected it to the wall switch by trial and error. Similarly with the heat, trying to get heat from the air conditioners of all things till we found the floor heater. And the dryer took some figuring out. Maybe a page of instructions left on the counter would be helpful to others.
All in all a great stay. Thanks for sharing your place.
Richard, Typically, Vicky meets our guests and introduces them to the flat. I'm sorry that was not done for you as I understand Vicky was in the Philippines for her daughter's wedding and was not able to meet you upon your arrival. Unfortunately, the person she found to substitute for her did not provide an adequate introduction to the flat. We will make sure that does happen for future guests. Warm regards, Matt
But for issues associated with receiving my emails, Matt and Vicky were excellent
David, We still don't know why Vicky was unable to receive your responses to her email to you requesting flight details etc. Thank you for reaching out to me prior to your arrival. I'm glad I was able to resolve the issues with your communication with her prior to your arrival. Warm regards, Matt
Matthew's flat is all that the other reviewers have said: modern, comfortable, great views, central, convenient etc. A few things needed fixing, like a leaking toilet pipe, and broken door handle to deck door etc, but these didn't affect our comfort. We had a couple of wee hiccups on arrival as Vicky couldn't meet us and had deputised us to her friend Susan who was there ( doing her laundry in the appt) but didn't know much ( eg it was freezing cold in the flat and apparently no heating until Vicky arrived after we had gone to sleep to locate the heater). Once this was sorted we were all good. Thanks Matthew.
The flat was centrally located in Hong Kong close to all kinds of transportation (once the MTR station open is even better). The flat was exactly as pictured. Very modern design. We had a wonderful stay. The check in was smooth as silk.
Matt's apartment is superbly located and has all of the modern conveniences one would want. We were met by Matt's friend and shown how to work everything and we had her number should we encounter any problems. We would (and most likely will) use Matt's apartment again next time we are in Hong Kong.

Hi, I recently moved from Hong Kong to Seattle. After quitting my job in Hong Kong and traveling for over a year, I decided to move to Seattle to enjoy the great Pacific Northwest.
