About this listing
Close to the airport, Disneyland, Tai O, the Big Buddha, and one of the most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong with several restaurants and bars in walking distance, this place has everything - except lots of space. But you'll be outdoors exploring!
Do you want to get away from the screaming frenzy of Hong Kong, but still be near enough to access the city easily? Do you like beautiful scenery and quiet nights? Then come and stay in beautiful Pui O on Lantau Island!
Please read through the whole thing so we don't have to exchange emails backwards and forwards. NO, you don't have to share the space with anyone.
The place is not big, but it has everything. WiFi, microwave, fridge, toaster, coffee maker, full dinner set for 4, beautiful bathroom. NEW ADDITIONS: Toaster oven and rice cooker! Towels, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner; all that.
Can sleep 3. You also get the use of your very own Nokia mobile with a Hong Kong number!
4 minutes' walk from Pui O Beach, 40 seconds from bus, taxi. Taxi to Tung Chung (metro) 15 minutes. Taxi to Mui Wo (ferry pier) 7 minutes. Bus to Tung Chung 25 minutes, to Mui Wo 10 minutes.
It is close to all the tourist attractions on Lantau: The Big Buddha, Tai O, about 30 minutes from Disneyland and of course the airport as well as the Convention Centre. Hiking trail starts 2 minutes' walk up the road.
The house is in a quiet village with lots of beautiful hiking terrain. There are water buffaloes and you'll be woken by birdsong every morning. There are several restaurants in the area as well as two bars: The JK Club and Tap Tap Spanish tapas bar. Cheung Sha Beach, 25 minutes' walk away, is crawling with restaurants.
I speak the local language; in fact I'm a Cantonese teacher, so if you have any linguistic problems just text me on the phone provided and I'll see what I can do.
There is an ironing board and iron. I will wash your clothes and air dry them, 2 day service.
If you stay for only a weekend I'm afraid it will be HK$700 a night, but for weekly stays or longer, the price above stands.
Welcome to Pui O and a truly lovely house with a fun and culturally resourceful host.
P.S. The map is not right! It's in PUI O, up some steps from the South Lantau Road.
Many people ask me if they'll have to share the space with other people. Of course not! The studio is separate from the rest of the house. However, there are some steps leading up to the house, so if you're travelling alone and with a heavy suitcase, please tell me so we can make arrangements about getting someone to carry for you.
Interaction with Guests
I'm normally at work but if anyone wants to go to a local bar (four minutes' walk) I'm all for it! Lasi the friendly and kind dog will welcome you when you arrive. She lives in the corridor outside your room.
Pui O is a lovely village, especially around the beach and the forests. There are little shops where you can buy snacks and drinks, as well as several restaurants - including Thai. The people are very friendly and helpful.
The place is 20 minutes from the airport, has lots of dining possibilities in walking distance and is only 40 minutes away from Central (by bus and ferry).
Other Things to Note
Check-in at 1pm, check-out at 11am. Sorry if I can't always leave a review for you - I normally don't meet the guests except fleetingly and have people to clean after your stay, so I don't see what it looks like.
Turn off the aircon, fan and hot water when you're not at home.
The room can sleep 3, as there's one single bed, ONE SOFA BED (and one couch fold-able mattress but then there will be no free floor space).
No late night parties (without me) please! It's no noise after 23:00 in the village.
