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!
It's our home so please respect our property. If you smoke, please do it on the roof top.
It was a fantastic stay in the apartment. We enjoyed the grand sea view and cozy faculties. We also cooked in the kitchen. the location is good that we can get everything we need just downstairs. Anyway, we will come to stay again next time if we go to the Lamma island.
I love the apartment! It was cozy and had an awesome view at the dining room and rooftop. There's two toilets too, so the 4 of us had no problem sharing! Gemma, Andrea's helper was also really helpful and friendly! She helped to lay out the mattress after knowing that there's extra 2 guests when my friends came over!
Loadsa food places along the street! And little groceries stores.
Andrea also gave me clear instructions to get to the pier from the airport, and also how to get to the apartment. It was easy! Takes about 25min ferry ride to get to central as well, convenient!
Only complaint is that it was a little noisy at night (but it was also cos it's new year day!)
Whilst I didn't actually meet Andrea throughout our stay, her helper was very useful in arranging our stay. She gave us the keys on time. The apartment is absolutely stunning! Living in Kowloon in Hong Kong, we have never seen such an amazing apartment! The sea view is amazing, and it is practically on the beach! It's in a good location and it is easy to get to lovely restaurants like Lamma Grill or the Waterfront on the island. The only downside is that there is only one bedroom but we found that there was enough space for 6 of us. Whilst the extra two beds weren't that comfortable, we managed to sleep well enough! The rooftop was also another highlight as we got a good view of the harbour and the sunset.
We enjoyed our stay, it's our first time to HK and Lamma Island was a treat, the apartment was perfect for us 5. We look for places that are quiet and interesting and this had it all.
Great directions for gettting there and house instructions simple and clear.
Our only complaint is it wasn't very tidy, made it hard to leave place in a clean condition.
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.
Hello! Me and my partner Alan are a French couple living in Hong Kong. We had our baby girl Nola in July 2012. We used to be adventurous and didn't mind staying in crappy hostels or surfing on couches but now that we have a baby we need a little more comfort! That's why we're looking into airbnb, to still get a local experience everytime we travel!
We are clean, respectful, responsible, honest, open-minded, the perfect guests in one word! We promise.:)
I was a couchsurfer, I hosted a lot of people in my apartment in Paris and surfed a couple of couches here and there, so I know how important it is to respect your host and his/her place.
