Interaction with Guests
As much as possible or invisible if you want. I will try to meet with arriving guests and show them the area. Whenever guests need information or recommendations, I am always available via messaging or phone.
The Sheung Wan MTR station is but 5 min walking distance away that takes you all over Hong Kong and Kowloon. There are also buses that run near the doorstep of the building on Hollywood Road.
Other Things to Note
Once you arrive in Hong Kong, everything is quite simple and all starts with a call from the FREE phones at the airport located in the hall immediately after you pass through baggage customs. There is also a Visitors Center there if you would like to pick up some maps, local travel guides, etc. to read on your way to the apartment. If you need a local SIM card, there is a 7-11 in the middle section of the main arrival hall where they see all types of SIM cards, I usually prefer the PCCW brand as it is the larges local operator.
This is a Strictly NON SMOKING Flat.
UPON ARRIVAL AT PROPERTY, ALL GUESTS MUST WAIT FOR ME AT THE FRONT GATE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING. BUILDING RESIDENTS WILL COMPLAIN TO PROPERTY MANAGEMENT IF THE LOBBY AREA INSIDE BUILDING IS BLOCKED. THANKS FOR YOUR KIND UNDERSTANDING FOR AN ENJOYABLE STAY.
Check in time is AFTER 12:30 pm. Make sure to contact us by phone at least 30 minutes prior to arrival such that we can meet you at the flat to hand you the keys and acquaint you to the surroundings. As this is a family business, please try your best to arrive at the apartment as early as possible. After 11:30pm as transport to the apartment is limited for us, we have to charge HKD150 to cover our taxi transport cost to and from the apartment. We are generally exhausted at the end of the day and we really would rather you arrive early and not have to charge this.
Guests must wait for us OUTSIDE the building upon arrival and not enter the building without us as this causes unnecessary misunderstandings with the property management and residents of the buildings.
Check out time is STRICT at 11:00 am. NO EXCEPTIONS or you will be charged for an extra full day. Our cleaning crew will arrive at 11:00 am to service the flat for the next guest, thanks for your cooperation.
Please help us save the environment by turning off electrical appliances when leaving the apartment or not using them.
Water heater needs to be turned off when not using. If it breaks due to prolonged time left on, you will not have any hot water for your stay and will be subject to expensive repair charges.
In the case that you have an evening departure flight:
Please note that you can check in your luggage at anytime during the same day as your flight at the Hong Kong Station Airport Express, which is only a 5 minute taxi or bus ride from the apartment. That way you would be free to explore the city on your last day, not having to worry about your luggage or rushing to the airport since you have already checked in, you will not have to be at the airport as early as everyone else.
All airlines flying from Hong Kong airport offer In Town check in, EXCEPT the following:

Really cozy house, in the centre of hong kong island. Easy to go anywhere by foot and close to MTR. And the roof is awesome!
The location is great and Brend's communication is spot on, he and whoever it is that work for him seem to be on to it. Appreciated the really helpful folder of touristy info/metro help etc etc and the apartment has everything you need and more it is really well stocked. Didn't appreciate standing on the road for forty five minutes on arrival after following all instructions - this should be seamless. Also felt the photos were a stretch for the apartment --- yea it's clean and well equipped but it is tiny --- I didn't expect a massive space but the photos make it look roomier. Also would be good to mention there is no elevator as we had been travelling for weeks at this stage and so with about twenty kilos of luggage each may have reconsidered with the walk up. The apartment needs a lick of paint but other than that it's tidy with nice modern ammenities and bathroom. The shower was playing up and Brent dropped in the same day that we mentioned this and had it fixed which was really helpful. Overall really great place for a few days if you want to be in the slick Soho part of Hong Kong, pricing is fair and hosts are definitely trustworthy and helpful. If you are a couple with a lot of luggage staying for more than a few days I would suggest somewhere larger.
was really nice, brend is really helpful whit all, the flat is cute and clea, good area close of the central...
Great flat, and clealy well maintained. The flat is in perfect location for the central bars and LKF. Bit disappointed as I was under the impression that the patio was just for the flat but overall it was a good stay.
The Location of the Studio is very good. Everything you need like groceries, Cafés or Bars is in Short Wallung distance. The Studio is very small, but okay for a two night stay. Brend is a very friendly and Kind host, the Communication was perfect.

About the Host, Brend
I was born in California and raised in Hong Kong. Went to college in the states and returned to Hong Kong a few years ago. I absolutely love travelling around the region but Hong Kong has always welcomed me home and I look forward to showing off my home town and sharing all the little insights and local specialities with all my guests!
