About this listing
Not withstanding this largest vacation apartment with 1600 sqft ! itself, there is much to explore around. Times Square, Fashion Walk, Hysan Place, Lees Garden, Wet Market, Ladies Market, Horse Races, Victoria Park…and a SUPERB VIC's HARBOUR View
All eyes gaze on Causeway Bay. It's where townhouses are grand, streets are gracious, and the Hong Kong high society is looking spliffy – from Jackie Chan to Andy Lau– pass on their way to attending talk-of-the-town soirees. Here, if you're inclined to go out, you should do so. It's the see-and-be-seen world. And yet, here on Fashion Walk is a home that may make you forget such glamorous distraction. In fact, you may never even wish to leave. The whole family will revel in this three bedroom apartment with its bracing Victoria Harbour views, but in an apartment which boasts a 60 inch Samsung TV, Hong Kong's famous Laser show every night at 8pm from your very own private sofa, a fully equipped kitchen with maids room, plenty of space in the bedrooms to enjoy privacy... there is much more to do than stand and stare.
The jet set
Your host, a mother of two, is the very definition of a high-flier. She works for an international luxury homes property estate and travels to many an exotic location while doing so.
The sitting room is a study in sophistication, with its amazing LED pictures on the wall. Take a seat at the dinner table, sprawl on the L-shaped couch, or stand adream as you admire the view from the light-flooded window. Equally bright and airy is the kitchen, kitted out in grey and white and with every culinary accoutrement you could wish for.
Then, it's on to the master bedroom – you'll find a king size bed dressed elegantly in gold. The master bathroom's cream tones, a bath tub and Fancl toiletries, make it a perfect place for pampering. A twin bedroom and another king size bedroom complete the set, one in blue, one in silver and both quite suited for adults or for children.
Not withstanding the numerous pastimes on offer within the apartment itself, there is much to enliven you and your family out and about in Causeway Bay. Times Square, Fashion Walk, Hysan Place, Lees Garden, Wet Market, Ladies Market, Horse Races…. Causeway Bay's many designer shops are all around, but if you desire more restful pleasures, the picturesque Victoria Park is almost on your doorstep.

This enigmatic city of skyscrapers, ancient traditions and heavenly food will fascinate, whether it's your first visit or your 50th.
Beyond the glass and steel of Hong Kong's commercial persona, the city also boasts a vibrant cultural scene that features the eclectic influences of its Chinese roots, colonial connections and a wondrous pool of homegrown talent. Here, you're just as likely to find yourself applauding at Asia's top film festival as joining in dawn taichi or reading the couplets of a local poet to the drumbeat of a dragon boat. Culture could also mean indie music under the stars, a classy art walk, your first Cantonese opera – not to mention the exhibitions and events staged year-round at the many museums and concert halls.
Why I Love Hong Kong
I love Hong Kong because it has a complexity that eludes definition, sometimes even by its own people. I can be soul-searching near the Chinese border, lunching with Sikhs at a Sikh temple, splurging on a set of kitchen knives, arguing with bohos about the merits of a dress – all within five hours – followed by a night of Cantonese opera, tango or karaoke, anywhere I choose. Hong Kong is so intense and so full of possibilities that I'm glad there's the Rule of Law (and an awesome transport system) to stop it from whirling into chaos. For me, that's pretty darn perfect.
Asia's top culinary capital, the city that lives to eat is home to many a demon in the kitchen, whether the deliciousness in the pot is Cantonese, Shanghainese, Vietnamese, Japanese or European. Whatever your gastronomic desires, they're likely be sated in Hong Kong – over a bowl of wonton noodles, freshly steamed dim sum, a pair of the sweetest prawns, your first-ever stinky tofu, or the culinary creations of the latest celebrity chef.
Neighbourhoods & Islands
The tantalising neighbourhoods and curious islands that make up Hong Kong are a sensory delight awaiting exploration. You may find yourself swaying along on a double-decker tramcar, cheering with the hordes at the city-centre horse races, or simply gazing out at the magnificent harbour. Over 70% of Hong Kong is mountains and sprawling country parks, some also home to geological gems. Escape the city limits on one of the world's best transport systems and spend your day wandering in a Song-dynasty village, hiking surf-beaten beaches or scouring for sea shards on a deserted island.
From ready-to-wear Chinese jackets to bespoke kitchen knives, the sheer range and variety of products on Hong Kong's shelves is mind-bending. Every whim, need and pocket is catered for in true enterprising spirit by an equally dazzling number of venues – swanky malls where the moneyed shop, chic side-street boutiques, antique stores, gadget bazaars, and a colourful mix of markets where you can haggle to your heart's content. The city has no sales tax so prices are generally attractive to visitors.

Other Things to Note
Please note that not every neighbor is happy about the New Sharing Economy. If we want them to understand the 21st century :-)) we should respect normal house rules like.... no party after 10pm, be quiet in the staircase/hallway, don't ring at neighbours bell because you cannot find the key in your handbag, don't throw things out of the window, eg. Just use your common sense.
Although the apartment is on a very high standard and equipped like a serviced apartment - I am still a private host but not a Hotel with fully employed staff and a front desk. Me and my team are always happy to assist - but if can take time to follow your not urgent request (like 1 more towel).
Please guys... no party without acknowledgment and confirmation, no smoking but only on the balcony/ garden, no drugs, eg.
Besides the risk of losing your deposit (apartment gets checked after your check out) it would be sad to lose the apartment due to inappropriate behaviour. Again - please use your common sense.
