We have a big (700 sq feet), sunny, cozy apartment with a big private roof top, on relaxed Lamma Island (a 25 mn enjoyable ferry ride from and to Central. The apartment is only a 4 minute walk to the pier).
The apartment can accomodate a maximum of 6 people:
- 1 big bed in the bedroom (sleeps 2)
- 1 convertible couch in the living room (sleeps 2)
- 1 mattress that can be on the floor (sleeps 2)
If you travel with a baby there is even a cot and a changing table as we have a baby ourselves.
There are 2 bathrooms, 1 kitchen, 1 dining room with full sea view, 1 living room, 1 private roof top (with bbq and hammock!). You can enjoy the sunset from the dining room or the rooftop. It's our home so you'll be sure to find everything you need: WIFI, TV, DVD player, washing machine, bedsheets, towels, etc). It'll be your home away from home.
We are in the main village so you'll find everything you need from the various shops and restaurants downstairs. You can also go to the beach, which is a 15 minute walk away. The island is beautiful and offers great hiking.
Many people commute everyday from the Island to work in Hong Kong and Kowloon (as we do), it's convenient and fast to go to Hong Kong. During peak hours there is a ferry every 20 minutes, and there are ferries all day. Don't stay in a expansive tiny hotel room or studio, enjoy a spacious and comfortable place on a cool and friendly island, but still close to the action of bustling Hong Kong!
Good initial contact before stay. All details made clear. On arrival, was met and given keys. On exit - same again. No problems.
During stay - excellent flat, large for Hong Kong. Beautiful flat, beautiful views outside. Especially loved the sitting room with a view over the harbour - great if you can't be bothered going up to the rooftop terrace - which of course has an even better view.
We had a wonderful stay at Andrea's place. The location was great for exploring Lamma and very convenient. The view of the harbour from the apartment is fantastic and my wife and I really enjoyed watching the bustling village below while we relaxed and sipped coffee. Andrea was also very communicative and we had no problems finding the apartment.
Fantastic view of the harbor, could sit and watch the activities from an air conditioned room. Restaurants galore, all within a short walk take your pick from sea food, western style steak, Asian, pizza, you name it. Out of milk for your cereal, groceries at base of stairs outside your door. We were there in August for 17 days, too hot to use the roof top, but the views were great. Only a short 5 min walk to ferry and then a nice 20 minute air conditioned journey to Hong Kong Central or Aberdeen. Short 20 minute walk to swimming beach.
great view, good location. neat and clean apartment - had a great time.
the mahjong soldiers begin every morning at 9+am... if you need a morning wake up call this will do it. otherwise, a very peaceful retreat from the city.
and the rooftop is super amazing!
Andrea has a very nice flat at the Lamma Island, located in the main street, just a few minutes from the ferry. A lot of restaurants are available just outside your doorstep.
This is just perfect for a family, with a lot of space - or if you want to stay outside the city of Hong Kong, only a nice boat trip from the big city.
This is one of my hottest alternatives for my next trip to Hong Kong.
