Interaction with Guests
I interact with my guests as much or as little as they prefer. I can help with directions and hikes
My neighbourhood is at the beginning of the country park so there is lots of greenery around. There is easy access to the country park for hiking. We are very close to Sai Kung by public transport. My house also has a lovely waterview so guests can simply sit in the outdoor area and enjoy the view.
There are buses not even one minute away that go into Sai Kung town or to the nearest MTR at Wu Kai Sha station or to University station and Shatin station.

Other Things to Note
I have two lovely dogs who are very friendly, but they are kept in a separate area so you won't be dealing with them with them.
Smoking is not allowed in the house but there is a large outdoor area where you can smoke.
Jill has been very friendly and helpful even before we set for the house for sending us very clear instructions about transportation. We were successful to find the house without a lot of effort. She also prepared cereal, milk, tea and even candles to use for free. We cooked in the room by using Jill's cooking equipments, which we really appreciate.
The house is in a really beautiful spot. What must be mentioned is the patio with a terrific sea view, where we could appreciate the beautiful sky in this tranquil district, as well as the stars in the evening. Even for the patio itself only you should pay a visit to this house. The location is convenient where we can easily get to the Wong Shek Pier or Sai Kung Town by bus.
There's a minor issue that, since the room is on the fourth floor and the ceiling is quite thin, we can clearly hear the raindrops on the roof while raining. This is a little bit annoying when the rain is heavy and it happens during the evening or the morning. However, this would not be a big problem.
Above all, we would like to visit Jill again for all the reasons mentioned above. Thanks for her hospitality and our great experience in the beautiful Sai Kung house :)
Instead of a private room, it's more like a whole suite to me as we own the whole floor, with private bathroom and a whole kitchen. It was exactly as it's described, very well cleaned before we moved in. The view is certainly spetacular on the deck. Simple food was also prepared for our 4-day stay.
However, the location in the Airbnb website map is incorrect. It's located in Wong Chuk Hang village, which is around 8 mins bus or 40 mins walk to the Sai Kung city center. Besides the steps required to climb to reach the building, the space is on the 3rd floor of a house without elevators, so it was a bit inconvenient for large luggage. Last the house is located in a generally very nice and quiet area surrounded by the forest, but the sounds made by various unknown animals became very noticable and a little annoying at night.
This place is a great option to escape the urbanness of Hong Kong at a reasonable price. It has large space with great view on a whole floor, but shares some inevitable problems in the rural area. In general we liked our experience staying here.
Jill was very nice and the accommodations were great and roomy as well. Private upstairs deck overlooks the bay is beautiful. I went there for two nights from a eight day vacation to Hong Kong. After looking at lonely planet guide it recommended Sai kung as a great hiking kayaking get outa the city place and lived up to its name. There are buses every 20 minutes into Sai kong from Jills. In The town of Sai kong there is kayaking for HK$60 for the entire day. beautiful kayaking around all the islands. You can walk to Sai kong in about 20 minutes or the bus is two minutes and cost Like $5 HK . The town is fun lotsa restaurants right in the water. Motor boats out to islands. Jill's house is 25 minutes (by taxi) to the Sai kung country park east dam trail head $110 HK taxi one way. Incredidible hiking. (Bus only goes to park entrance and from entrance to trail head is about 2 miles. So I took taxi. No buses or cars (other than taxis) can go in park. Jill left a great breakfast spread with just about anything you want to have for breakfast and snacks as well. Overall a great experience. Easy trip from central HK.
We had a fantastic weekend at Jill's. Sai Kung is the very best place to stay in Hong Kong if you like the great outdoors, and Jill's village is very close to the start of the famous Maclehose trail and the country parks, which is why we picked it. It's also not too far from the lovely Sai Kung town where you can find some lovely restaurants, cafes and bars.
Jill and her fiance Bill were warm and welcoming from the very start. Before we'd arrived, Jill provided lots of info on finding the house and patiently took all my questions (I had quite a few, because it was my first time on Airbnb). The bnb itself was simple, but well set up: clean and cosy with a beautiful balcony - the pic on their profile is spot on. They'd even stocked up on breakfast nibbles and tea, which we appreciated because their quiet village isn't so convenient for picking up groceries etc. We'll surely be back soon.
Minor quibble - the fridge was quite noisy, which kept some of us awake. Also the third bed turned out to be slightly broken, so my friend had a restless first night of sleep. But as soon as Jill found out, she sorted it and after that all was well. Thanks, Jill and Bill.
So glad you enjoyed your time at ours. After several notes about the fridge we have fixed the problem (hopefull) and it is now very quiet. As for the blow up bed, as mentioned it is really only for children and not a 6 ft 3 large man but that problem has also been remedied. Thanks for your feedback so we can continue to improve the experience for everyone.
Overall we had a brilliant stay at Jill's and would highly recommend her lovely sea view flat.
Jill was the perfect host. After a bit of a struggle in finding her place - we arrived in the evening - the rest was smooth sailing. Jill was extremely flexible, accommodating, and welcoming. She set up a separate bed for our 2 year old, and made sure the kitchen was stocked with essentials. Her balcony is just amazing, and the morning and evening views are stunning. We felt pampered and lucky to stay in this little oasis away from the city.
We booked this flat for 6 nts whilst visiting our daughter in the Sai Kung area. Jill was very helpful and responsive in the booking process and beyond e.g. travel tips from the airport.
The property is a convenient location just a few minutes bus journey into Sai Kung. It is a fair distance from Hong Kong centre but since we were focused primarily on Sai Kung area that was not an issue. The view from the roof garden is amazing. The flat is homey and relaxed.
The shower/toilet room is very small but functional. However, some of the furniture is beyond shabby chic. The TV stand, the large TV and the refrigerator are beyond their use by date. As noted by other reviewers the fridge is noisy especially when starting. The small kitchenette had ample cutlery but few dishes and very limited cooking pans, etc. It has good wifi and washer/drier.
The dogs are very friendly. Sunny could play catch all day!
Jill was away at the time that we stayed but she arranged coverage. She was quick to respond to texts/mails.
In summary, if you are looking for a hotel quality apartment, this isn't for you. (But there are few flats and almost nil hotels in the area). If you like quirky, don't want to cook much and want a great view, this flat may suit you fine.
