I love travelling, meeting new people around the world, learning, reading books, swim, horse riding, yoga, sun gazing (seeing the sunrise/sunset)... :)
The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
There are a few things you should know: Discovery Bay is a lovely place and my family really enjoyed staying in this family friendly area. However, we did not realize a few things about DB. First, you cannot take a taxi from the airport to the apartment building. This was not made clear to us before arrival. There are no cars allowed in DB so the taxi has to drop you off at the DB entrance and you need to find a bus or hire a private car. This was all very confusing to us at 9:30 at night and when traveling with children and luggage, it was quite a hassle. The apartment itself was a bit underwhelming; not updated and a bit shabby but cheaper than most so I guess you get what you pay for. Make sure to ask for the WiFi name and password ahead of time. It was not left for us and it took us 2 days to get ahold of the owner to get the Wifi info. We did have a very nice time in the area.
The host made this stay very easy with good noted on how to get around Discovery Bay and the apartment was smart and functional. Me, my wife and twin four year old daughters enjoyed our stay here. Sachen was also very flexible, by allowing us to stay longer and allowing a late check-out.
This place is great, very nice and clean and high recommend for people who want to stay away from busy Hong Kong. The transportation from airport to discovery bay and from discovery bay to the apartment is very easy. the bus no.7 is exactly on schedule. Super easy for every destination.
Sachen was very friendly and helpful when we were in HK, before we arrive the flat, he sent me many many details about the flat and how to reach there, which bus to take, which stop we should get off....... following his message , you will be very easy to find the flat , and the digitel lock makes we can check in any time. that's great!
So it makes our trip to the flat and disney very easy.
Sachen also a very kind owener, he sent messages to me while we were there:is everything goes well?
Discovery Bay is a very special place that makes you feels like this is not a part of HK.
We love here. and everytime we go to disney, we'll stay this area.
Thanks Sahchen again~
And best wishes\(^o^)/~
We were a family of 5 travelling with 3 young children (ages 8,6,4) flying from Australia to the UK with a 3 night stop over in Hong Kong. I was not aware when I booked this accommodation that we would not be able to get a taxi from the airport to the apartment. This is because no cars are allowed in Discovery Bay. The host said he could book a private car for us but I asked several times and he never did so. So, after a 8 hour flight we had to get 2 buses from the airport to the apartment, which was very hard in the heat with 3 kids and all our luggage. When we finally got there the apartment had not been cleaned from the previous guests, there was towels and sheets everywhere. We were very hot and weary and it was not what we needed. My husband called the host and he sent someone around to clean the apartment for us, so we went out while they did so. The apartment was OK but the air conditioner was very noisy when trying to sleep. Discovery Bay is a lovely place and very quiet. There is a good bus network and the buses go regularly. We went on the cable car and Disneyland while we were there, which was great fun. It was very hot though being July so a pool would have been nice!
This was a great place to stay. Sachin made it very easy to gain access to the apartment/apartment building as we were already in Hong Kong. We stayed there for a night and found everything exactly as listed. Discovery Bay is beautiful and the bus station right out front made it very easy to get around.
Sachen was prompt in responding.
House was clean & tidy, well equipped in Kitchen for cooking.
We had a great time stay at this apartment.
Meine Freundin und ich haben die Wohnung aus beruflichen Gründen für vier Wochen gemietet und wir waren wirklich sehr zufrieden! Nach unserer Ankunft am Flughafen und einer ca. 30 minütigen Busfahrt, haben wir die Wohnung anhand der guten Beschreibung schnell gefunden. Discovery Bay ist ein ruhige, sehr schöne Wohngegend in der es einen großen Supermarkt und schöne Restaurants am Strand gibt. Leider nicht ganz billig.
Die Wohnung ist exakt wie auf den Bildern und in dem Text beschrieben. Wir haben das Apartment sauber und ordentlich vorgefunden und für zwei Personen ist die Wohnung absolut ausreichend. Für vier Personen wird es allerdings recht eng. Es sind alle Basics vorhanden und die Klimaanlage funktioniert ohne Probleme. Der einzige kleine negative Punkt ist die Küche. Diese ist leider schon etwas alt und etwas muffig. Wir selber haben dort nicht richtig gekocht. Kühlschrank, Toaster und Wasserkocher sind aber in guten Zustand!!
Da das Apartment im 16 Stock ist, hat man zusätzlich eine super Aussicht auf Discovery Bay und den Strand.
Sachen ist eine sehr unkomplizierte und nette Vermieterin! Wir haben sie leider nicht persönlich kennen gelernt, aber während unseres Aufenthalts standen wir die ganze Zeit in persönlichem Konakt zu ihr. Sie hat schnell auf einzelne Fragen oder Probleme geantwortet und hat versucht auch einzelne Wünsche zu erfüllen.
Zusätzlich haben wir einmal in der Woche einen "Helper-Service" gebucht. Annie ist eine nette Haushaltshilfe und hat für uns geputzt, das Bett frisch bezogen, gespühlt und Wäsche gewachen. Diesen Service kann ich also jedem empfehlen, der für einen längeren Zeitraum das Apartment gemietet hat.
Alles in allem waren wir wirklich sehr zufrieden und würden diese Wohnung jeder Zeit wieder buchen.
Vielen Dank Sachen und liebe Grüße.
