The flat is as represented in the pictures. Benoit provided very detailed instructions on how to locate the flat, along with pictures. We had a bit of trouble, as it was nighttime when we arrived, but after we found it, everything was fine. The location of the flat is about a 20 minute walk to town center.
Although we did not meet Benoit, he was always prompt in responding to inquiries. Also, he was kind enough to allows us to bring a dog to the flat. In all, a good experience. We had a nice holiday in Sai Kung and if we go again, we would stay at Benoit's flat.
We had a very relaxing stay here. The space is bright and has a good feel to it. Benoit sent very good instructions with photos on how to find the place. Communication via text/email was good and made logistics easy. I was happy to find a rental in this location as there are no hotels in the area. Would definitely come back and stay longer!
This is a great place to relax and unwind. The balcony overlooks the water, and it was nice to sit and enjoy a cup of tea while listening to the birds. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook your own meals, or Sai Kung is just a short walk away and has some great restaurants. My wife and I really enjoyed spending a few days away from the hustle and bustle, and look forward to coming back some time.
Very nice and clean apartment. Whole house is furnished with things which makes you feel comfortable. Anything you can think of is already there. Terrace is the bonus, even if the weather is not favorable, its pleasure to stay at home and just watch the rain from under the roof and listen to music or read a book. Neighborhood is very nice an quiet. You cannot even hear all that bus and taxi noise from the street by the house. It feels like you are miles from civilization. There is nice small store (random opening hours) right across the street where you can buy beers or basic food. Everything is super easy and comfortable. RECOMEND!
Benoît's place is nicely situated 2 km outside Saikung. The village is quiet and from the balcony one can enjoy the view on the bay. Saikung can easily be reached and also some very nice hiking spots. The apartment offers all you need for even a longer stay. We spent 6 nights there and BenoÎt was so kind to allow us a late check out. The apartment is a bit rustic and we found it a bit too expensive.
The location at the seaside is wonderful. The house is cozy and very well equipped (there’s even an oven and the bed is super comfy). We stayed in Benoit’s place with small children, which was perfectly doable. The bus stop is 1 minute walking and big and small busses to Sai Kung run every couple of minutes. From there, ferries can bring you to nearby islands and little beaches. The only small detail about the place is that the internet connection is not working very well, so if you want to be connected you better go to Starbucks in Sai Kung.
We’d recommend this place to anybody and would love to come back someday. We had a great time. Thanks Benoit for sharing your place with us!
Really nice apartment. We were 2 adults and 2 kids, and we loved it. Great seaview, and good location, close to hiking trails, and 5 min by minibus to Sai Kung downtown. We have to find a place in one or two hours and right after contacting Benoit, we got everything we needed to check in.
He made sure we had everything we needed.
