I love travelling, meeting new people around the world, learning, reading books, swim, horse riding, yoga, sun gazing (seeing the sunrise/sunset)... :)
The accommodation itself was adequate. Would have like some more help and assistance when we ran into a few problems.
We encountered a cockroach infestation in the kitchen a few days after moving in, we were left to purchase spray and traps (the costs were reimbursed at a later date).
A few days later we were left with no electrics, again after mailing the two contact numbers we were asked to call the management office ourselves, who came to look, they were unable to solve the problem but gave us a list of electricians ... this was passed on again to the 2 local contacts who did call and arrange for an electrician to come to the apartment but said they would be unable to be in attendance ..... this meant that we had to wait in for and deal with the electrician. A whole morning of our vacation wasted.
A little surprised that there was no follow up phone call or mail from the landlord to find out if the problem had been solved.
Response from Sachen:
We never had any such issue with other guests as one can see the previous reviews. My helper was always in touch with guest in my absence and myself was was available as well when I could. This is a false review.
We loved our time at Sachen's place - it is clean, spacious and has everything you could possibly need. Sachen is a very kind and generous host, who goes out of his way to make your stay an easy and enjoyable one. We would definitely recommend his place in Discovery Bay.
Arrangements with Sachen were very easy. Apartment was clean and well presented, had everything needed and beds were comfy.
Wifi wasn't working on the first day but Sachen kindly fixed it the following day.
Discovery Bay was a very easy area with kids with shops and restaurants. One thing to note, which we weren't aware of is that Discovery Bay is closed to normal traffic, you have to rely on local buses. This is fairly easy but bare in mind you can't just jump into a cab. We had a transfer booked from airport which when we arrived said they couldn't go to DB so we had to get the bus. Still relatively easy but worth bearing in mind if traveling with kids. Could never get through to the DB transfer service who are supposed to go to airport. Transport to Central was great on the ferry.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment and Sachen was a great host.
Dear Sachen, thanks for the excellent apartment!
If you come in DBay the first time - pay attention to transport instructions and strictly follow it :)
After that it is possible to enjoy rest and travel on the island. Apartment pure and comfortable, people around the very pleasant.
We 've had stayed here for 2+1 nights. On the first day of arrival, due to late flight, we took a cab to reach the DB toll plaza, which is entrance to the hill. We were waiting for half an hr at the bus stop near the toll for the DB bus to arrive (Reminder: all kinds of transportation includin personal car, taxi, public bus not allowed to go in) When arrived at the DB bus terminal, I didn't aware bus frequency is so less during midnight and in frustration, I called to Lyn at 3am for help. She answered the call and obviously in the sleep but anyway, she asked me to call car pick-up service. When reached house, we were surprised of comfy, spacious and clean house! We stayed here for 2 nights and came back for 1 night after several days check-out. On check-out day, I have left my phone in the house and Lyn was helpful and she offered to keep the phone and return to me when I check-in again. Overall, although the location is quite remote from town (need to take bus from house to DB bus terminal and interchange another bus to nearest mtr stn Sunny Bay), we've had a pleasant and enjoyable holiday home stay experience!
We stayed at the apartment for 9 nights over Christmas and it was very pleasant. The apartment was clean with plenty of linens. It was nice to have a refrigerator stocked with fruit and water. The commute to the city was easy. We would definitely stay there again.
Sachen's apartment is simple and comfortable. Even nothing fancy but good for 4 ppl stay in it. DB is a good island for get away from the busy downtown.
Nice and clean apartment. Very spacious and in a safe and quiet area. Was suitable for my family of 5.
This place is close to the plaza. You can take the bus or walk for about 4 to 5 minutes. Simple and enough to stay but you have to buy food. Its very clean and enjoyable.
My husband, daughter and myself stayed at Sachen's place for 9 weeks and it was a really good experience. The apartment is nice, bright and has everything that you might need, ok in size for HK standards and close to DB Plaza (10 mins walk). Sachen and Lyn were extremely helpful every time we had a problem or needed something.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a short term place in DB area.

Thanks Maite :)
