Chinois Chic in the heart of Soho !

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Caine Road, Central, Hong Kong

The Space

Sail in, fly out. This sunny flat is a little oasis right in the middle of bustling Soho in the Central district of Hong Kong Island, and the perfect launchpad for all your sightseeing and city living.

This is a cozy one-bedroom and one-bathroom renovated apartment with burnished cement floors, a fully equipped kitchen and all amenities you might require or desire on your stay. Big windows face south and north and in the fall, winter and spring months the apartment is well-ventilated with the windows thrown open. The one bedroom has a double/full bed with a premium pillow-top mattress and imported down comforter and pillows, with the bathroom ensuite. An oversized sofa and chaise lounge dominates the living room space -- this sofa can very comfortably sleep 1 extra adult or 2 children.

There are two air-conditioner units to keep the apartment ice-cool over the sultry summer days. A big, stocked fridge of drinks and an in-house Whirlpool washing machine allow you to make yourself at home over longer stays. Equipped with wifi + internet and a powerstrip accepting universal plug types.

All towels, linens, etc, are provided. The flat will be cleaned and towels changed ~2x a week for guests staying longer. If there is anything special you require -- please ask!

Location, location, location. Hong Kong Island is all about convenience per square millimeter and this is about as convenient and centrally-located as a home can get. I am located next door to the Shelley mid-levels escalators, and surrounded by restaurants, bars, cafes, small groceries, boutique clothing stores and homes. Food and drink aside, many of Hong Kong Island's attractions (Hollywood Road antique shops, the Sheung Wan markets, Lugard Road to the Peak Lookout, the Botanical gardens) are an easy walk away.

The flat is on the fourth floor of a traditional Chinese walk-up building (no lift!) and steps away from the Shelley St. escalators. It is easy to hail taxis right on the street and there is also quick access to buses and minibuses. It is about a five minute walk to Central/LKF. The flat is within 10 minutes walking to the Central, Sheung Wan and Hong Kong MTR stations, and similarly, about 10 minutes downhill to the Central Airport Express Station in IFC.

  • We stayed just over 1 month at Kali's place. The place is wonderful, it has all what you need and location is super. I would recommend to everyone who wants to stay for short or longer periods

  • Kaline's apartment was great in every way. It was thoughtfully furnished and had all the necessities for a worry-free stay. Located just next to the escalator, the apartment was a fantastic base to explore beyond the SOHO area. Will definitely recommend Kaline's place!

  • The location is perfect, surrounded by bars, restaurants and more. You can easily get there by the mid-levels escalators.
    Kaline is a really nice host who will give you her recommandation and everything you will need before you arrive.

  • We had a pleasant stay in Kali's apartment. Everything was well prepared and the apartment had a great location in Soho. I would definitely stay again in this cozy apartment and Kali was very helpful through the mail contact we had. I would definitely recommend her apartment!

  • My time spent in Hong Kong was fantastic and the fact that we were perfectly situated in central was perfect for new visitors to the city like us. We were very close to lots of bars, restaurants, spas, shopping and transport.

    Every morning before we set off we would head to a lovely bakery across the road for breakfast then leisurely walk to the train station.

    Kali was the perfect host and provided lots of information prior to the trip as well as during. The apartment was fully stocked with clean towels, toiletries, bottled water and even wine!

    Kali also arranged for a mid week clean and tidy up which was completely unexpected but really appreciated.

    The apartment is perfect for 2 people and can just about fit a third. There are four flights of stairs so maybe not completely suitable for those with mobility issues, for us the stairs were just what we needed after a night out of eating lots and lots of lovely local food.

    I would definitely stay here again

  • Had a great stay at Kali's flat which is in a superb location, as close to town as you can get! The flat is small but great if you are just using it as a place to sleep. The only thing to be aware of is that, as described, it is a 4th floor walk up. The fridge was stocked with water and drinks which was a very nice touch. Kali was lovely to deal with and everything from booking to getting keys was seamless. Would recommend this place to anyone and would stay here again.

  • Kali's apartment was perfect for our stay in HK. It is ideal for a couple wanting to be in the middle of Soho. Easy access to everywhere. Kali was a pleasure to deal with, she provides you with anything you might need. I would definitely recommend this to all.

    November 2013
  • Kaline's apartment was fantastic! Besides the great location, her place genuinely feels like you are at home. She provides everything you need, from towels to a washing machine and even travel guides. I would definitely stay here again when I come back to Hong Kong.

  • We had a lovely stay at this apartment on Caine road just next to the escalator in the heart of Soho Hong Kong.
    We were two and it had all the requirements our 8 day stay.
    The communication with Kaline was perfect and she provided us with all necessary details and support to make our stay a pleasure.

  • Apesar de não ter conhecido a anfitriã pessoalmente, ela se mostrou prestativa e disposta a ajudar no que fosse necessário. O apt é do jeito que é descrito no anúncio. Lá estavam disponíveis toda a sorte de itens de cozinha e casa. A localização é realmente incrível.

    O apt te ajuda a vivenciar a experiência de viver em HK, tanto pelo seu tamanho como estado geral do prédio.

About
I'm a native Pacific girl and am happiest living seaside. I have been working in Asia for over three years based in Hong Kong before very recently relocating to Shanghai. I never fail to enjoy returning into this packed, frantic, sultry, colorful and hilly island that I am still proud to call home....and am now enjoying the chance to explore a whole new neighborhood of winding tree-lined roads and French bakeries and commuters on bicycles in the shadow of Shanghai's skyscrapers. I love hosting friends and new visitors to Hong Kong and Shanghai. I was initially an accidental Airbnb-er and being an avid traveller myself, have been impressed time and time again with the spirit of this community...I would be thrilled to share anything I know about these cities or region with you!
