Private Bedroom @ TinHau on HK Isle

Apartment - Private room · Electric Road, Hong Kong, Hong Kong

*Located ON Hong Kong Island* with a view of both Victoria Park and Hong Kong's magnificent skyline (including Bank of China Building)

A room that is perfect for a single traveler, 100 meters from Victoria Park and a short MTR ride to Central.

The Space

It is quiet, has a Japanese style futon and is located just over 200 meters from the Tin Hau MTR Station's Exit A2. Within these same 200 meters are the Hong Kong Tram and multiple bus routes that can take you to the Peak, TST, or New Territories. From my door...Hung Hom/TST is 10-15 minutes away and Central is 15 minutes away.

Your room is a simple 1 person room with a futon and a wardrobe. I always supply clean sheets and a cheery attitude. The wardrobe has ample room for your luggage. I will try to accommodate an extra person on the couch if needed, as it is a very comfortable leather couch. (but there is an extra charge)

In addition, my home is very clean and renovated. At the street level below my home are multiple restaurants, dessert stores, fruit sellers, meat vendors, and convenience stores. Tin Hau is known for being the place to find a wide variety of food, which would explain the multiple BMW's, Audi's, Ferrari's, etc. always parked during the evenings.

***Yes I am pushing convenience as a factor, as everything is convenient to this location.***

Why you should rent:
a. Newly renovated.
b. City view.
c. Bright, quiet, and airy.
d. Elevator access
e. restaurant on the 1st floor.

Advantages:
- No extra costs for towels
- I give you your own keys of the flat
- Free Wifi
- Convenient transportation

Are you arriving by plane? or train? I am normally out of the house but always make arragements to get you in and settled. There is a chance I could be home when you arrive... Otherwise I am out doing all of the outdoor things that HK has to offer.

AND.... Please have a way for me to contact you, This makes the coordination the simplest. It is easiest to get a HK Sim. SIMS are übercheap here in HK, just stop off at a 7/11 and grab one. under HK$100 and cheaper for all that you will need... Makes it easy for us to stay in touch, if needed

Guest Access

This is a shared apartment with me, you do have your own private bedroom

Interaction with Guests

Other details it is best to ask. I am rarely at home, mostly to sleep, and occasionally eat. Other than that, I lead a very active lifestyle.

The Neighborhood

Great location - As I said only very short walk to Victoria Park (tennis courts, swimming pool), Tin Hau MTR station, three bus stops including direct to airport, tram stop, huge range of food options, wet markets and supermarkets. Walking distance to Causeway Bay.

=============
The area is great, incredibly eclectic, and the building has free wifi in the cafe at the bottom of the building. Lots of places to eat and MTR is very close. I am only 220 meters from the Tin Hau MTR station and just a short walk to Victoria Park.

Getting around

Also when you arrive...
If you're staying for more than a few days, consider buying an Octopus stored-value card , it is used at almost all convenience food places like 7/11, mcD, etc. you wont need cash to carry most of the time. just an OCTOPUS card. Buy it at the MTR station. it is not only a travel card but it is also a NFC debit card. It can be used to pay for the MTR, buses, minibuses, trams and ferries and you can also buy things at 7-11 or Welcome grocery stores with them. The cards are available at service counters at any MTR station. The minimum price is HK$100 plus a HK$50 deposit (refundable when you leave Hong Kong, minus a HK$9 service charge). For travel, simply swipe the card on the unmissable yellow Octopus pad, and the fare is automatically deducted. Airport Express travel pass cards are HK$220 for a single Airport Express journey plus three days' unlimited travel on the MTR, or pay HK$300 for two Airport Express trips plus three days' MTR travel.

Other Things to Note

DO NOT RELY on FREE WIFI outside my Home. Hong Kong has a number of Wifi Spots, of which SOME are free, but you still need an HK PHONE NUMBER to activate the free service. Get a SIM, your life will be easier.

  • I was very pleased to be able to stay in Gordon's apartment which is in a central position with easy metro, tram and bus. I really enjoyed it staying at Gordon; it felt like home for me and I was glad to having them! thank you so much!

    April 2014
  • I had a wonderful stay at Gordon's apartment in TinHau. It was my first time using airbnb and so it was really nice to stay with someone who took the extra time and effort to make sure sure I had everything I needed and to make me feel right at home. The next time I visit Hong Kong I will know where to look first to stay.

    April 2014
  • This is my second time staying at Gordon's place. The place is small yet comfortable. I always feel like home when I stay there. The place and clean and tidy. Lots of places to eat in this area. Gordon and Melissa are easy going people.

    April 2014
  • Gordon was a wonderful host, and a truly charming, cheerful soul. Even though my request was very last minute, he was happy to let me stay at his place while he was initially away. He gave me clear instructions and was very helpful with everything throughout my stay. I loved the location cause his street is literally packed with cute small restaurants and the waterfront as well as the park are just a tiny walk away. Would definitely recommend staying at his place!

    April 2014
  • This place is exactly as advertised. It is a small room at a great location. Melissa was great and gave very helpful advice. The underground is just up the street. The neighborhood has tons of restaurants. I can not say anything bad and got a great deal.

    March 2014
  • Gordon and Melissa are all very kind and nice. The place is very Convenient. It is suitable for traveling alone in Hong Kong. Very nice place.^^

    February 2014
  • Gordon's place was an ideal choice for my stay in HK. It's advertised as exactly listed and is indeed very convenient and clean. The proximity to the Tin Hau MTR station was awesome.

    Gordon & Melissa kept in touch with me even though they were away on a business trip, answering any questions I had with a very cheery attitude. You will definitely get the feeling that they care about your time in the city and are happy to share suggestions for things to do/places to eat.

    I can definitely recommend Gordon's place for your stay, and its probably one of the biggest bang-for-your-buck accomodations out there.

    February 2014
  • Fantastic place, easily accessible, and great hospitality!

    February 2014
  • Gordon's place is conveniently located near trams, buses, light buses, taxi, and the MTR. It's not far away from Causeway and North Point. Downstairs there are at least 2 7-Eleven stores and 2 laundry services and there are many restaurants. Most restaurants are opened for mid-night snacks. Gordon's place is tiny and tidy and it is good enough in every way for a short stay. The price is good, location is great, and Gordon, even I did not have a chance to meet him, kept in touch with me before, during, and after my stay to make sure all my questions are answered. I highly recommend Gordon's place.

    February 2014
  • Handy little apartment very close to Tin Hau MTR, with plenty of options for eating, convenience, pharmacies, laundry nearby. Gordon and Melissa are provident with advice about what to see, where to go. I went to dinner with Melissa the last night I was there and it was great to share that experience with a Hong Konger of some years standing, and she gave me more insight into the city. Would definitely stay again.

About
"I am a lover, a dreamer, a believer of magic. I bought the copyrights on the fantasy of living happily ever after despite the monumental efforts of the real world to protect me from myself. I have taken every chance I have had to wonder. Perhaps it was 'wonder why I do this' or 'wonder when lunch is' but mostly it has been taking a big bite of the juiciness and letting it dribble down my chin kind of wondering. I laugh longer, cry louder, and dream deeper than ever before in my life and I wouldn't exchange a bit of the pain for a day of life inside the lines." I am an upbeat outgoing person, with a passion for Inline Skating , as well as, Snow/Water Skiing, working out, rock climbing, cycling,... anything keeping me active. There is always a little kid in me saying "Act your shoe size, not your age." Very passionate about things that I believe in, Always working to grow as a person and to learn to not take "life" for granted, I like to read books promoting self-awareness. I also love to cook, just lay around sometimes, or get outdoors and work up a sweat. I work to LIVE, not live to WORK - I define myself not by my job, but by what I get pleasure in. Living for the moment, I enjoy each breath of fresh air, and try to not take life too seriously.
