Located in Tai Hang area, the little village in middle of the big city.
From my point of view its the best location in HK, you are close to everything but still it's calm and everything is downstairs.
It's 7 min walk from Tin Hau MTR and 10 Min Walk from Causeway Bay MTR, SOGO or Time square.
It's my peaceful home that you can have for a while when I am away.
400sqf (40m2) + 200sqf roof top with Bbq, umbrella and massive table.
Renovated apartment in an old style building so its on the 5th floor walk up. The only inconvenience is that, as it is the old type building, you take your shower next to the bowl!
You have everything you need besides a microwave (thats the next purchase, but feel free to bring one back from your HK relatives :)
Otherwise you have, Wifi, a big TV with cable and a comfy coutch, washing machine, iron and table.... Well everything you can think of when you leave in a place! You can also cook but I recommend to go in the neighbourhood which have a massive number of restaurant with any cuisine you wish! And last detail, a maid is coming twice a week.
Anyway if you are in HK, you never spend more then 1 hour awake in your appartment.
And feel free to drop me a line and I will give you the best tips of the neighbourhood!
Just don't burn the place down, don't wear my cloth or go through my stuff.
And if you are on the roof top please clean it after as it is shared with other tenants. But feel free to Bbq on it. :)
Both Quentin and the apartment are super.
I met him few days before to get the keys.
Then I moved to this apartment in Tin Hau which is really cute and big for HK standard. It was very clean and fully-furnished (washing machine, etc).
It's located in a wonderful area, with lots and lots of small restaurants and bars which are opened till late evening.
I really enjoyed my staying in the apartment and I highly recommend this choice for your trip to HK.
I stayed at Quentin's place in Dec 13.
The place is tidy and clean, as pictured. Toilet is pretty small but all is good. Location is great - walkin distance to MTR and close to yummy eateries. Please pack light if you are to stay here as it is not easy to carry your full luggage up 5 storeys.
Great apartment! Equipped with all you will need and well located. it is a brisk 5 minute walk to the mtr. i loved the roof top terrace. Will definitely stay here again.
Quentin responded very quickly to all emails and his maid met me at the apartment. the five storey walk is no problem. staying here was brilliant value and really comfortable. bathroom might pose issues for families but couples will be fine. I highly recommend.
Finding Quentin's place was very easy and the handover of the keys went all smooth.
Little did we know how awesome this little neighbourhood, just outside Causeway Bay, would be.
It has lots of good and cozy restaurants, bars. Quiet at night and very close to the lively area's of Central, if that's what you're in for.
The apartment is spacious and clean and we felt right at home. Quentin is a welcoming host, though we didn't meet him at the time of our stay, he had left a nice note and beers in the fridge!
I'd recommend staying here.
Such a great place! The decor and amenities are very cozy and cute. The kitchen is extremely well outfitted if you need to cook anything, too! Bathroom shower-head was broken though; I ended up having to bathe village-style as the previous tenant had broken it. The location is absolutely fantastic- I only wish we could have tried more of the restaurants and shops that were nearby, but there were too many! Very cool vibe in the neighborhood, and very convenient to the MTR. The 5 floor climb is no joke for the faint-hearted, but it's worth it for a home away from home.
Quentin's apartment was great to stay in. The area surrounding the apartment was full of great cafes and little shops, as well as supermarkets and convenience stores. The Tin Hau MTR station is super close by and easy to get to. The apartment itself was extremely spacious and clean. Quentin was a helpful host, making it easy to find the apartment and get keys from him etc. We had an excellent time, would definitely stay here again!
Nice location, can get to MTR Tin Hau Station in 8 minutes. Many kinds of eatery surrounded (from local Hong Kong cuisine to exotic food)
As for the flat, it's hugely spacious for a couple. good sized bed for two at the master room. It'a a good place to recommend at all.
Hi There. I moved to HK 3 years ago and its really an enjoyable city to live in. I was previously living in Vietnam for several years. I grew up in many different countries which I hoped helped me to always stay open minded.
I am a rugby player and HK is heaven for that.
I also love to cook or do a BBQ with a bottle of wine on my roof top terrasse with some friends. If you stay at my place, please do so, BUT KEEP IT QUIET!
I hope you will enjoy your stay in HK as much as I enjoy living it.
