Rare loft with sea view industrial building and small rocky beach just downstairs. Fully equipped with new washing machine & pool table. Malls and public transport just next door & downstairs. 24 hours security. Very close to city center (20mins)
About the space:
- This is a very unique loft near Aberdeen Ap Lei Chau Island, Hong Kong. Just behind Ocean Park, the loft is the last building closest to the edge of the sea and it's the perfect getaway, but close enough to the vibrant city of Hong Kong!
- Amazing views of the ocean and mountain.
- You will have the entire place to yourself, all 1,100 sq ft and with 1 queen sized beds, plus Siemens dishwasher, fridge, over head shower, and sea view/mountain toilet. it can easily accommodate a couple of a small family or a small group of travelers. Mall next door with deli/supermarkets and luxury brand outlets. Very close to Ocean Park.
- The apartment is installed with my own eco-designed furniture that is inspired by the Aberdeen landscape and atmosphere.
- Ceilings are 4m high which is very rare for Hong Kong standards.

Even though the location is special and the space is big I was quite disappointed by the flat as many things have changed since the pictures were taken and not for the better: the whole bedside area is not there anymore and a lot of furniture has been dismantled and stored in pieces in the flat.
Also, it seemed like the flat wasn't used for a while as we had to wait for 5-10mins before the water got transparent and there was dirty dishes in the dishwasher.
Apart from this, we had a nice stay and enjoyed discovering the neighbourhood and its hidden restaurants and shops.
It would have been nice to receive an informative message from Jay mentioning good restaurants and nice things to do around his flat (also explain how to turn on the wifi...)
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Jay's loft is a very cool boyish and spacious commercial-residential studio on the 20th floor of an industrial warehouse. Its located in a somewhat remote and surreal setting with between Ap Lei Pai, a 23 floor outlet mall (!) and an ocean front driving school. Transport by bus and after 8pm only by taxi.
The place is unique and we had a good time in the apartment. However, used underwear was lying around, the stained bed sheets were not changed and there was a strong cigarette smell. Unacceptable and unprofessional.
Furthermore, the photos on Airbnb are outdated and some appliances did not work. Jay seemed a relaxed guy, but we never saw him once. This was not a problem, but we did feel as if the previous guest rushed out without a proper checkout/clean up. The whole place could use a refreshment and better service.
Le logement est sympa mais un peu loin de tout mais il est claire une belle vue mer spacieux par contre les points négatif la salle de bains qui est beaucoup trop petite et mal faite et en mauvais état la cuisine il n'y a pas d évier et n y a pas assez de couvert ou d assiettes ou de ustensile de cuisine et on nous dit un logement pour quatre personne mais dormir sur le canapé qui n est pas un canapé lit se n est pas génial mais en tout cas pour nous cela nous convenait
Decent place, like in the pictures. Quiet and serene, unlike HK. Though I had given my wife an idea of a 'different place', i was skeptical. However, enroute to the place and seeing the tiny matchbox style apartments of HK, stacked like a pile of coins, this was a welcome change !
A few things like clutter, dust, cleanliness and basic amenities of the kitchen could be better looked into. The microwave was not working, though Jay suggested to use the mini oven, the oven plate had molds on it.
Overall, though the location is good, the view picturesque, the place is more like a collection of extra, used, unwanted stuff from home.
The house is so peace, silent, and big. Yes, bigger than bigger, and we can play games in the house.
Traffics is ok, easy to find, not so hard.
Very good place to stay.
This was the second stay at a place Jay has on Airbnb and it did not disappoint. It's a really quirky concerted loft space in an industrial area, but a lovely eclectic environment inside. And the view outside the windows is nothing short of stunning. I was spoiled by 2 amazing sunrises, but even without them, I'm sure I'd recommend the place.

Hi I am Jay and I'm a eco-designer based in Hong Kong. I have designed an amazing living space that I would love to share with travelers who are looking for a unique living experience in Hong Kong! Both listings have their own private beach and nature plus lots of clean air to breathe! The house by the beach has spring water connection and living wall gardens are up on both listings. Enjoy! :)
