An ideal Hong location any visitor--hip without being touristy--this contemporary & newly renovated 1 bedroom apartment has every feature you need for your stay, from a stereo and internet to cooking needs and warm lighting. Enjoy!

The space
Filled with plants and art, this one bedroom urban oasis has been newly renovated and impeccably re-decorated -- warm and inviting in the best of neighborhoods for your stay in Hong Kong. The art comes from local and regional artists all over Asia and the art & coffee table books are there for your enjoyment during your stay. The custom built desks provide ample working space. A fold out table is adjacent to the kitchen for dining.

Before reading further, please kindly note: for those who do not have any or many AirBnB reviews, I do require an full introduction of who you are as this is my personal place. Also, as this is an AirBnB and not a hotel and I do not charge a cleaning fee, I do politely ask it to be returned the way you found it when you first entered, not like a rockstar leaves a hotel room. Thank you.

The apartment sits charmingly above the main antique shop street, Hollywood Road, on Hong Kong Island and in the early mornings, you can see outside the window the incense burning as offerings that the shops light.... and it's still just a 5 minute walk to Central. It is steps away from the famous Man Mo Temple and Cat Street where all tourists and locals alike buy antique Chinese trinkets.

The warm and inviting apartment is fully equipped with all amenities (far superior to any serviced apartment) so you can arrive with your suitcase and immediately sit down to check your emails on the computer (or via your laptop on the wi-fi available) and even begin to cook your dinner..... It can sleep a couple and one additional person comfortably as there are two "real" beds [one queen in the bedroom and one full real "daybed" in the living room].

There are (10) shallow stairs leading up to the main entrance of the building from Hollywood Road, which most guests find charming, and the apartment is located on the second floor.

I offer the "nB" (breakfast) part for all guests to get them started so that there is some yummy food, tea, fresh water, etc. for whatever time of day or night you arrive. I also provide the guests with complimentary shampoo and body wash, toothbrush, moisturiser, etc., in case yours didn't make it on the trip.

Included, in brief:

- Towels & linens: freshly washed once a week
- Wi-fi
- Computer and large work space with multiple, custom crafted desks
- Blackout bedroom curtains
- Full kitchen equipped with staple condiments, pots, pans, cutlery, etc. [ready for cooking]
- Espresso machine
- Washer/dryer
- Local landline telephone with unlimited local calling
- Dehumidifier (which you'll be grateful for in this climate!)


More details:

These amenities are superior to the usually very bare bone (and slightly depressing) serviced apartments in HK as well as other sublets—your comfort will be far improved at a better price point. The decor is tasteful, warm and peaceful and it is impeccably maintained.

There is a very comfortable (full-sized) daybed in the living room, which can be used to sleep another person, as well as the queen-sized bed in the bedroom and an additional sofa in the living room.

There is also a work area in the front of the apartment with matching wooden standing desks and an internet-ready Mac computer for use, etc.

It is in a coveted location, near the Man Mo Temple and above the antique shops on Hollywood Road, 2 minutes from Soho, surrounded by antique shops, restaurants and nightlife [but quiet], and a 5 min walk to the MTR.

Practicalities:

A team is on ground to take care of you while you are there, and I am always contactable. Check out time is 11 AM and check in is at 3 PM. However, I am delighted to look into being flexible with that timing if you let me know well in advance so I can check with previous guests, arrange the cleaner for different hours, etc.

Please kindly send an introduction of yourself when inquiring. (It's required as you stay here with all my art, books, etc.)

Thank you for your interest!

I've been with AirBnB now for many years, often having guests stay at my apartment in the midst of it all in Hong Kong (and now in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn) and feel that hosting is a true pleasure. I like to receive guests as if they were friends, as we're all travellers at heart. I'm an American fine art photographer and I travel often, so would like to offer my place to you while I am not there. I keep them both clean, stylized and comfortable so you'll feel more at home. I travel often and often remotely so sometimes it takes a couple days for me to respond but as long as I have wifi I'll get back to you immediately. If you are interested, I would be delighted to provide more information about myself directly to you. So please just ask!

During your stay
If a guest is staying there, I am likely abroad, but I have a team ready and willing to help you with anything you need or any issues that arise. I always supply any mobile numbers that you need to be in touch with me directly as well as with the team on ground. Please note that if I am in my second home in New York, there is a 12 hour time difference and so replies may be lagged.
