Where an afternoon cup of Tea/Coffee at 4pm and in perfect harmony with nature makes perfect sense. Added to it is a 360 view!
WHY STAY WITH US: Fully-functional and FURNISHED Beach House Apartment with private balconey. The view from Balconey opens up to uninterrupted vistas of South China seashore, 30 footsteps to a clean and unspoiled beach, a view of Cheung Chau Island on the front. And, tranquil and serene greenery of the forest at the back. We have some favorite resident birds in the forest that like to sing in the morning but will not disturb your sleep. No ambulance and police horns here!
THE SPACE: Two XL-size bedrooms (relative to shoe-boxes in Hong Kong and Cheung Chau Island), comes with closet and luggage space, equipped with 2 double beds each and one sofa bed can accomodate 2 people in the Living Room.
OPTION: Should you require just one/two bedrooms only, that can be arranged as well.
OPEN PLAN: Fully-equipped kitchen with Dining table/with 6 chairs, TV Lounge and extra space with office desk/chair. All rooms have a view and sunlight, except for the bathrooms. Pls be reminded that Sea Ranch is an old property and renovation of water pipes is an ongoing process so sometimes the water pressure is low and the flush water tanks are not very efficient but they are workable and should not be a hindrance to your stay.
TO-FROM AIRPORT: We are 90 minutes from the Hong Kong International Airport. The Airport Express Train gets to Central District in 25 minutes. After a 10 minute leisurely walk one can get to the Cheung Chau Ferry Pier #5 and catch a Fast boat which takes 30 minutes to Cheung Chau Island. The connecting boat to The Sea Ranch is a 1 minute walk. The SR boat takes about 15 minutes from Cheung Chau to SR. And suddenly you are in different place away from the noise, pollution and traffic!
EXCEPTIONAL: The Sea Ranch (GUESTs and RESIDENTs Only property) is on the southern tip of the Lantau Island, nestled within a Natural and protected Forest reservation. Its served by a private boat that connects with Cheung Chau Island, which acts as a gateway to Hong Kong Central district and Silver Mine Bay, connecting to other attraction like Disneyland, Ngong Ping Cable Cars, Giant Buddha of Po Lin Monastery etc.
HIKING?: From Sea Ranch, there are hiking trails to Silvermine Bay (Mui Wo) and Pui O village from where you can take the bus to the Po Lin Monastery (Big Buddha) at Ngong Ping. There is a cable car that can be taken to enhance your experience of the forest and sea below.
RIFF-RAFF AFAR: Cheung Chau is the public transport hub and serves Central District via slow ferry ride and a fast ferry. It also cooks up the best seafood in Hong Kong! And also houses shops, 7-11s, supermarkets, Sports Centre, Hospital/Clinics etc.
BOAT RIDES: The connector boat between Sea Ranch and Cheung Chau is free for the guests. And runs between 630am to 1205am. . Once your reservation is confirmed, I shall send you the ferry schedule so you may plan your access into Sea Ranch from Central. Private wallahwallah (local saipan boat) can be hired for out-of-schedule trips.
The Ferry To & from Central to Cheung Chau costs Hk$12.60 (US$1.62) one way, weekdays and same for Sunday's and Public holidays if you buy a return.
DOOR-TO-DOOR: You are 55 minutes RESTFUL boat ride from your front gate at Sea Ranch to Hong Kong Central district!
SURFING?: We can provide on-premises wireless Broadband connectivity (Huawei pocket wifi BUT you need to have your own data sim card) and iPads for a fee, to our guests should they require.
And we have bought a NEW Oven after one of our guest told us that the one in the stove didnt work ;))
GUARANTEE: That for this price, you will not get so much living space, BBQ with ocean waves, peace, tranquility and private BEACH front, anywhere in Hong Kong!
Guests will be given access to all the amenities on the premises and a free boat ride between Cheung Chau and Sea Ranch
We will give the entire space to our guests so that they may enjoy their privacy. We are living in the same block and may be reached for any action required.
Everything is Sea Ranch. You can book BBQ pit with the management office and please be prepared that ALL shopping/pubs/eateries are in Cheung Chau but a short 15 minute boat ride away. This is the price we pay in order to keep absolute peace and quiet.

The only reason i dont want to leave good feedback is because i want the place available for future trips haha. Could not have been better complex has private beach place was well priced.. quiet safe.. unique.. condo itself was dated and because of that full of charm .. Amer could not have been a better host.. honestly i dont know how he had time to be so attentive.. great experience
Because the host told me the guidance of the house and the boat, I was able to easily arrival.
I was so happy to be able to stay in the resort beautiful sea view.
I would recommend to everyone.
This was our second trip to the Sea Ranch and it was just as great as the first! Amer is very accommodating and took care of everything we needed. Looking forward to going back in the Spring!
Fantastic place to stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sea Ranch. Amer was very helpful in helping to arrange our trip and his directions were perfect. We came from mainland China and getting there was very easy. The ferries to and from Cheung Chau ran on time and were comfortable.
The location cannot be beat. The beach is right in front of you and accessible only by residents. In three days we saw maybe three other people on the beach. Behind are beautiful hiking trails that we thoroughly enjoyed with amazing views of the surrounding islands.
Inside the apartment, everything works well. The kitchen has enough items to cook and the air conditioners worked fairly well. You should be aware that the beds are very typical of Asia; harder than what we have at home in the US. But if you have been to Asia before, you expect that!
We have already talked and concluded we will be staying at the same place when we go back to Hong Kong next year!
We had a wonderful time at Amer’s place. Amer’s place is a terrific getaway from HK. Secluded, quiet, great beach for HK standards and only 20 minutes from Cheng Chau. Perfect to relax and distance yourself from the hustle and bustle of HK. I’ll definitely keep it in mind for a future weekend getaway.
Amer’s place is very spacious. Heaps of room for 3 of us and you would be comfortably able to have many more people. Very close to the beach so perfect to spend lazy days sun baking.
Amer is also a terrific host. He’s very responsive and is contactable whenever you need him (in saying that we had no issues with his place so there wasn’t any reason to contact him). We were also grateful that he took to time to meet us in Cheng Chau and appreciative of all the little unexpected lollies and food waiting for us on arrival.
We stayed at Amer's place with a big group for Christmas. It was a great place to escape the city with some friends. Sea Ranch is easy to get to with the ferries, and Cheung Chau makes a nice stop on the way. Sea Ranch itself has a bit of an eclectic 80s vibe, but the place was great and Amer was incredibly accommodating.
Our only gripe was the lack of a functioning oven, but we made do with the barbecues that are available. Amer also arranged for another group of our friends to stay in an apartment nearby.
