Harbour View, Quiet & Covenient

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Western Market, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

Welcome to a perfect spot on the edge of Central, 10 min walk to IFC and Airport Express and all the delights of SOHO and unique charms of Sheung Wan. Enjoy dynamic views of the harbor and city lights and quiet hum of the city from the 32nd floor.

The Space

Located near Western Market in downtown Sheung Wan, here You have a dynamic view of the western Victoria Harbour and uniquely quiet but accessible location. You can watch the traffic of ferryboats, cruise ships and fishing boats as well as the city lights of IFC, classic HK tram street Des Voeux Road and a slice of the TST skyline.

Our building is literally a 5 minute walk door to door from the Macau Ferry entrance which means you can take a day or evening trip to Macau and return home after a few hours with no stress and no complicated transfers. We are 5 min from the Sheung Wan MTR station at the end of the Island Line. Another nice option is the HK tram (also known as the 'ding-ding') which is slower but good for sightseeing and romantic at night time. The Macau Ferry bus terminus also located next door is where you can pick up buses to all the major destinations in Hong Kong.

In addition the flat is an easy 10 minute walk along the water to all of the ferries to outlying islands like Lantau, Lamma and Cheung Chau as well as the Star Ferry over to Kowloon. Walking 5 minutes away from the water you are in the antique and art gallery district of Upper Lascar Row and lower Hollywood Rd, Sheung Wan.

The flat accommodates up to 4 people with 2 queen size beds, one fixed bed in the bedroom looking out at IFC cityscape and one pull-out futon with thick mattress in the living room looking out at the water. Both are very comfortable.

You will have all the towels and linens you need as well as soaps, shampoo, etc. The shower has a sliding door and a bathtub and enough room for western-size people so no need to worry about cramped toilet experiences. There is no TV but we have a good sound system with a cable for your ipad, ipod or laptop and fast WIFI internet. We have air conditioners in each room, as well as a standing rotating fan which is a good option with big open windows.

The flat is very close to the Airport Express and in fact it is an easy walk if you don't have too much luggage. I will usually be traveling out of Hong Kong in the region, but will be available on my local HK phone number and also have a local contact person if you need any help. The flat will be cleaned before and after your stay.

  • The apartment was fine and worked OK. Location was good.
    Slight downsides were the fridge too small, and lack of 2nd bedroom and shelves or dresser for clothes.

  • As described. The views are great, and the location is fantastic. Eric is friendly, flexible, and inspired trust and confidence. The flat is small - it's ideal for two, but fine for more only if all you want to do is crash. Which is OK since the area is great for eating etc. The kitchen is pretty small - don't expect to be doing masterchef in it!

  • We enjoyed the good view of Victoria Harbour and Eric was a good host, meeting us on arrival and helping us find a taxi on departure. The setting in Sheung Wan, as advertised, is idea for exploring Hong Kong.

    Information useful for families/groups of more than 2 people: The place is advertised for up to 4 or 5 people. This may be fine if all are backpackers with very little luggage. The small bedroom works for two but we had to use the futon (that normally could accommodate 2 in the central room) for our clothes as there is no closet, shelves or drawers to put anything.

  • Staying at Eric's was wonderful. It was small which is normal for Hong Kong, fantastic location as we wanted to be out if the shopping, magnIficent views. Eric was really helpful, I would stay there again and recommend it. What was amazing is we could open the windows and have real air. 24 door security and everyone really helpful.

  • this flat is very well located nearby all the ferries and in a very authentic CHINESE area ;

    The kitchen needs some more equipment and it misses some clothes rack into the flat.

    Eric is a nice host thanks to him

    Response from Eric:

    Please note that the kitchen has sufficient equipment for preparing light meals, including pots, pans, etc, but like all small flats in Hong Kong this one does not have big or elaborate kitchen appliances as many western kitchens do. Most guests who come to Hong Kong wish to enjoy the huge variety of restaurants in Central and Sheung wan which are all very close to the flat and easy to walk to.

  • Thank you, Eric! We had a great time there.
    The flat is exactly as described, so there is all you need. Great location (close to the trams, ferry and MTR), a lot of restaurants to everyone's taste, and, of course, perfect Harbour view...
