It is a quiet bedroom with a double bed, and a personal refrigerator, located just over 200 meters walking distance from the Tin Hau MTR Station's Exit A1. From my door... Causeway Bay Shopping District is 10 minutes walk, Hung Hom/TST is 10-15 minutes away by bus or MTR, and Central is only a 12-minute MTR Ride. Our guests are always pleasantly surprised with the convenience of our location. My flat is situated within minutes of food, transportation, and cultural temples!!!

The space

Your room is a simple 1-2 person guest bedroom with a personal refrigerator, bed, chest, and a wardrobe. I always supply clean sheets, towels, and a cheery attitude. The wardrobe has ample room for your luggage, and the refrigerator is perfect for drinks/snacks.

I can accommodate an additional person if needed, but there is an extra charge.

Within 200 meters are the famous Hong Kong Tram and multiple bus routes that can take you to the Peak, TST, or New Territories. Great location - Only a very short walk to Victoria Park (tennis courts, swimming pool), Tin Hau MTR station, three bus stops including direct to the airport, tram stop, a huge range of food options, wet markets, and supermarkets. Walking distance to Causeway Bay.

Also, my home is very clean and renovated.

Why you should rent:
a. The flat is Newly renovated.
b. City view.
c. Bright, quiet, and airy.
d. Beautiful rooftop
e. Many restaurants within 30-second walk.

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

Please have a way for me to contact you, This makes the coordination the simplest. It is easiest to get an HK Sim, as SIMS are übercheap here in HK. Just stop off at a 7/11 and grab one( under HK$100 or cheaper) for all that you will need. Having an HK SIM will make it easy for us to stay in touch if needed!

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

Guest access

You are sharing an apartment with me, and you do have your own private bedroom. You also have access to the rooftop to watch the birds and Sunsets. Since there is a grocery very close, you can save money by using the very large by HK standards kitchen.

Interaction with guests

In the mornings, I will be getting ready for work, but always can make time for a brief chat for directions or suggestions

I always try to help my guests/friends find the other side of HK. The one without the big buildings, the one with green, and sea, and birds!! If you want to know more 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.

Other things to note

This is my home, not a hotel. My main purpose is making friends rather than making money. So, please briefly introduce yourself, your travel pace and rough check-in/out time before asking question or making reservation, thanks a lot :)

Also, when you arrive...
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 largest local operator.

Always consider buying an Octopus stored-value card, it is used at almost all convenience food places like 7/11, McD, etc. You won't 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 an 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 an HK$50 deposit (refundable when you leave Hong Kong, minus an 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.


DO NOT RELY on FREE WIFI outside my Home. Hong Kong has quite a few 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.

Check in time is flexible
Check out by 12AM (midnight)

The above checkout of "Check out by 12AM (midnight)" is the same as AirBNB's FLEXIBLE Checkin. I work to coordinate the Departure and Arrival of my guests. I just ask that you have the room clean so that I can more easily clean it before the next guest arrives. It is ok to leave luggage in the common area until you have to leave.

Overall, I hope to make your stay in Hong Kong enjoyable, and hopefully be able to recommend wonderful places to eat and visit. Also, please remember to turn off the AC when exiting the room.

I expect guests to realize that this is my home. I don't smoke and expect my guests not to smoke either. Please be neat and tidy.

I do have a washing machine and if you have clothes to wash, you are welcome to use it for free. However, please do not wash clothes in the sink. I am certain that you do not want to pay for a plumber! ;-D

I have been very warmly welcomed by both Gordon and Melissa. Gordon provided me with very good trip during my whole stay. I definitely recommend it. One of my best experience so far.

Nice and cozy place to stay. The location is very convenient and Gordon is very hospitality. Recommend to stay in HK.

Gordon is an excellent host, providing loads of information. His place is located in a great part of HK near public transport. Airconditioning works well in the apartment and the room. As this is HK be aware that private home listings may have more clutter than you expect from other locations. Be aware the 'mattress' is incredibly thin so most suitable for those who like a hard base to sleep on.

Gordon kept turning on dehumidifier to keep the moisture level down which made the room super nice. There was an AC in a room. Convenient store is super close. A hotel one minute walk from the house provides a free shuttle bus to HK station where you can early check in for ticketing. Also, a bus straight to the HK airport was literally just one step away from the house which was good for me to save money and time. Thanks again Gordon for your hospitality! :)

I can't fault Gordon's place at all! Not only is the location great, but both Gordon and Melissa are incredibly welcoming and attentive. They took me out on my first evening in Hong Kong which was the perfect welcome and I had a fantastic time getting to know them. I only wish I could've seen them more!

We loved having you stay with us Helen. You absolutely are a divine guest! It was our pleasure to have you join us on your arrival. I love sharing Hong Kong with guests, even those that have lived here before ;-) There are so many places to visit, sights to see, and tastes to try. I am especially happy that you were able to taste Sahara, as it is my favorite restaurant in the city. Hopefully, we will have a chance to see you on your next visit home. Geniunely thanks for staying

Melissa and Gordon are really Super Hosts, amazing hospitality! Everything from the first communication, booking, the way to the appartment etc. went very smooth, you recognize from the first second, that they are airbnb and Hongkonk pros! Since it was our first time in HK, especially all the insider tips were very valuable. After our arrival Melissa and Gordon showed us the neighbourhood, there are a lot of nice restaurants and eating spots around (you have to try the chinese noodle soup with pork chop at Bing Kee!). 24/7 supermarket is right out of the doort from the apartment, way to the metro is a 1 min walk! We can highly recommend to choose Gordons place for a stay in HK!

Thanks, Malte, we loved having y'all stay as well. I hope that you can come again when you have time. There is so much to explore in HK and you only were able to touch a small part of it. You were an awesome guest!

"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.
