The Space

This cozy apartment comfortably accommodates a single traveler, a couple or a small family visiting Hong Kong. It has a kitchenette with electric cooker, microwave oven, refrigerator and all the eating and cooking utensils that one family would need. It has a full bathroom that has an enclosed shower with water heater. One big and comfortable real bed (Not a futon or pullout sofa) that sleeps 2 people. Flat LCD screen TV with cable TV and a DVD player as well as ultra high speed wireless internet.

The best thing about this apartment is it's location. It is close to all sorts of transportation that take you to everywhere you would want to go to in Hong Kong. Located on the West side of Hong Kong in the Sheung Wan district, it is 5 minutes walking distance from the Sheung Wan MTR Station and 5 minutes from the tourist hotspot Soho. It is only a few steps away from the Central MTR station on the Tram or bus and the neighborhood is super safe and friendly. Also, there is a 7 Eleven convenient store as well as a Laundry Place right around the corner.

**In the past I have borrowed out adapters for FREE to guests as a courtesy and convenience, however, too many have not been returned (over 50) and I can no longer keep up with restocking. Unfortunately, I can't provide these for free but if necessary, will sell them AT COST (@HKD20) instead. Sorry that this gesture failed.

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.

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.

  • When you look out the window on the left side, you'll see an amazing ocean view. We really enjoyed our stay here. It is convenient going from one place to another as the place is really close to the tram stop and bus stop.

  • The studio was well equipped with everything I needed for my time in Hong Kong, including fast WiFi. The neighborhood is convenient and just a short walk to Sheung Wan. Brendan was very responsive to my initial request, but we had some miscommunication when I arrived to check in.

    April 2014
  • The place was just right for us. Pleasant view, cozy, inexpensive, and right where we wanted to be on the island. It's an easy 10 min walk to the underground, and close to loads of shops and things, and on the main thoroughfare to get to plenty of Western bars and stuff. We loved walking to and from day and night.

    Amd Brendan was really considerate helping us out as our prior Air BNB apartment literally got flooded out from hard rains, so he came and let us in within just a couple hours of booking. Very helpful!

  • The flat is perfect! Clean, central and the price is fair.

  • Good things.
    Location is good for tourist stay.
    Room has a heater.
    Water heater is giving really hot water.
    Towels and bed linen smell ok.
    Internet is fine.

    Bad things.
    Shower is the most weird I have ever used. Water doesn't drain well makes a flood near toilet bowl.
    Sink has cold water only.
    Room is small. Very small.
    Cleaning fee is applied but floor was dirty. Hair and dust found.

    I would recommend it for 1, maximum 2 people stay and only if a room needed to come, sleep and go out.

  • I've stayed in Brendan's properties in Hong Kong on numerous occasions and greatly enjoyed my stay, as always. Brendan does a great job of being responsive to any possible inquiry and the properties always match/meet my expectations.

    If you are new to the areai, simply ask Brendan what requirements you have and he can give you an educated recommendation.

    This particular property is located in an up and coming area of Hong Kong called Sai Ying Pun. It is extremely close to Central, but provides a more local feel. Central is about 20 minutes walk and ideal for a daily stroll. The location has access to public transit, and a cab to the center would cost maybe $4-5.

    The area has a street of bars and restaurants called High Street that is also great and easy to access.

    I will stay again!

  • A very nice apartment – cozy and clean. It's not big but the space is enough for two people. The location is also good – a bit away from metro (MTR): 10 minutes by foot, but it's not a difficult route. Also a tram stop is very close and any tram will get you to MTR or even to the centre of the island.
    The hosts are really nice, provided us with all the info we asked for, including what to see, where to go and how to get around the city. We enjoyed staying at this apartment and will definitely recommend it to anyone wishing to go to Hong Kong.

  • This place was wonderful. It was perfect for our stay in Hong Kong. The Internet was fast and the place had everything we needed. Brendan's mom was very accommodating for our check in even though our flight arrived very late in the night. Would definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting Hong Kong. Safe. Convenient. Spacious with a view.
