I will give you any tips or advice you need on where to go, eat or what to do in this fabulous city. A local’s help goes a long way, and I'd be happy to oblige with any suggestions I can offer. We’ll be happy to provide you with local guides, so you can spend your travel budget in the smartest way
Our apartment is located at Tin Hau which is close to 24 hours Convenience stores, resteraunts,Bars, Supermarkets, grocery stores, pharmacies, laundry, massage salons, cafes, bakeries, bus stops & tram stop. Easy access to everything you may need in the neighbourhood.
You can do simple cooking in the apartment. However, most visitors would be unlikely to do that because of the wide variety of famous restaurants nearby: Local HK style, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, western food, street food and Desserts for late night snacking. Needless to say. The neighbourhood is also well served by McDonalds, Starbucks, Pacific Coffee and other fast food chains.

No smoking inside the apartment .... Thanks !
What a perfect spot for a home base from which to explore Hong Kong. There was room for our family of five (youngest was very happy to sleep in the TV room). Very close to convenience stores, grocer, wet market (farmers market), and ample restaurants. The MTR (subway) was within walking distance.
Wilson is an excellent host. Friendly, and responsive to any questions we had before and during our stay.
The apartment is small (which is to be expected in Hong Kong), but very comfortable. The air conditioners in each bedroom are very quiet!
Really like the apartment and the quick response from Mr Wilson - the host.
Very cozy and clean apartment. Also eazy to find foods and public transportation (both MTR and taxi).
Highly recommended place to stay.
Thanks alot Mr Wilson!
Wilson was a great host. Very helpful indeed. We arrived that late night and he took time out to meet us in front of the entrance of the building to make sure we find the right apartment.
Location was excellent. Very convenient. The apartment unit was ok. The bathroom is a little tight and rundown. The couch needs to be replaced too.
All together it's not too bad.
Place was very nice and clean. Wilson is a nice host willing to help out to make our accommodation as comfortable as possible.
A wonderful stay. Can't believe tht it has everything a household should have as well! There were 5 of us including my 3 yrs old girl. Eventhough we brought our own, but just cant believe tht its got a stroller, baby chair and even playpen in the unit. The host Wilson is a nice person and contactable at all time. Though we didnt get to meet up in person since we were so bz walking around but he has got everything well prepared tht we basically dont need to bug him at all. A recommended plc to stay!
Wilson was an excellent host, keeping in regular communication to ensure everything went smoothly. The apartment is is a great location, 5 min walk to Victoria Park which was great for our family with 2 young children. 5 min walk to MTR. Wonderful range of food in nearby Electric St. Everything so easy to access via MTR or taxi. Whilst the apartment is small, this is to be expected of any accommodation in HK. Everything was neat and clean and in working order. Apartment is very secure, with keyed entry at front gate and front door. Bedlinens and towels excellent quality, and changed during our stay along with a clean of the apartment. Wilson really went out of his way to make our stay comfortable providing a stroller and cot for our little ones. Nothing was too much trouble, I'd definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone.
A very nice clean apartment. Wilson was a great host, he was very easy to communicate with leading up to our stay and when we arrived he met us at the apartment after hours and loaned us a phone for local calls and a 3G router for wifi access all over Hong Kong which was extremely handy. The only issue we had with the apartment was the noise. It's on a busy road and there is construction going on next door so it got pretty noisy in the morning before we went out for the day.
