My name is Michael Sparks and I teach of History at an international school in London.
A beautiful home which we very much enjoyed staying in. Would definitely look to stay here again if back in Pringle Bay. The description of the home on AirBnB is accurate, and it was easy dealing with Martie Kotze (a quality local estate agent) to get and hand back keys, and get briefed on how to operate the home.
- Excellent social areas allowing people to hang out as a group, as well as, take a bit of time out from the larger group for private time/one on one time.
- Great location being 250m walk to the little town centre, and something like 700m to the beach.
- Furnished to a high spec (so look after it if you do stay!)
What an amazing place to spend a family holiday! The house was so cosy and well equipped. Thank you for opening your home to us!
The house is spacious and with a big outside space that is protected with shutters. It feels like a homely beach with a modern design. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and love Pringle Bay and neighbouring Betties Bay. The island in the kitchen set the scene for some great holiday chats with friends and family. The house is easy to find and the host made us feel welcome. We hope to be back in the future.
Our family of five enjoyed a wonderful Christmas in Pringle Bay. The Sparks's house has a large, open living area, enclosed patio, and an upstairs sun deck. The kitchen is well-equipped, which was important for us, as we enjoy cooking. The scenery from the house is lovely. The beach is only a short walk away through the quiet beach community. The community has a few small shops and restaurants. We found freshly baked bread and pastries in town, and enjoyed breakfast at "365." A big "thank you" to the Sparks family for a memorable vacation!
We had such a great long weekend in the house, so many great memories were made. The house is in a great location to walk to the shops and restaurants and a nice stroll through the houses to the beach. The master bedroom upstairs has amazing views. We had cocktails most nights on the top balcony. The house is great for interacting with everyone downstairs while cooking. The open plan living area works very well. Great stay in Pringle Bay! The fetching of the keys was so easy and Marti (the lady that looks after the property) went above and beyond to help us and make our stay comfortable. She is a real gem!
Excellent communication with host and the location is ideal..5 minute walk to the beach and even less to the local supermarkets. The house can comfortably sleep 7 people and has a great outdoor balcony with views of the ocean and mountains. Great selling point is the spa bath in the master bedroom. Will definitely stay here again when in Pringle Bay.
We had an awesome time in Pringle Bay. The house is beautifully designed and furnished, spacious airy and welcoming with breathtaking views of the bay and surrounding mountains. Could not have asked for a more perfect place to have our Christmas family reunion and are so grateful to the owners for allowing us the opportunity to have experienced their piece of paradise.

The apartment was perfect for our family summer trip. Nice sized two bedrooms with two fill baths, fully equipped incl. wifi, TV, air conditioner, full kitchen, and great view from the balcony overlook the city and the pool. The building has shuttle to sheung wan which was very nice for us to get there for free. Michael left a very clear and detail instruction and also very responsive to our needs. We will aboslutely stay there again.
The apartment is just as pictured and described, and the owner is very helpful in giving any other information needed before booking. I stayed here with my husband and teenage daughter during the first week of April. It is quite small, but that is typical of HK apartments, and the fact that it has 2 full bathrooms is a plus and I think a rarity in HK.
It is a bit out of the way, but it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle and the free shuttle bus to the MTR (underground rail) is very useful, the drop off point is also within walking distance of the Star ferry. We enjoyed walking down the hill to Kennedy town and catching the "Ding ding" tram into town, a bargain sight-seeing experience at about HK $2 per trip, taxis are also cheap and easily flagged down right outside the complex, we often would take a cab back from the mid-levels or Central and it only cost about US $5 (HK $40).
We also appreciated coming in and turning on the air conditioning, which worked really well, on steamy evenings, and the free wireless internet was great. The flat has a fully equipped kitchen with a washing machine and the overall complex it is in is very nice and well kept. If you don't feel like cooking or going into Central or TST there are a couple of pubs and little restaurants near the waterfront in Kennedy town, about a 10 -15 min walk. I would definitely recommend the flat and we would stay again if we came back to Hong Kong.
Der Ort, das Haus, die Umgebung...alles wunderschön und 100%-ig weiter zu empfehlen.
Michael and his wife were just lovely guests. Very friendly and polite and looked after our room very well. Highly recommend! X
Michale, Jane and their kids were wondeful guests. I was glas to hear they had a great time. Communication upfront and during their stay was great. The apartment was left tidy. They are more than welcome to book my apartment again.
Very friendly guy, we enjoyed having him around, kept the room clean and he was flexible with checking in time as we had guests precious night, we had enough time to clean his room with no pressure or anything, no doubt that we will host again if he ever finds himself in kigali and I would defiantly recommend him to any host
What a lovely familly! we loved our long conversations with Michael, Jane and Vicky... they are long life travelers and had so many stories to share. They shown lots of interest for the city, and were always curious of every tip or recommandation we could give them. very nice guests to have!
