If you want to be in Discovery Bay, a very mellow, naturally beautiful, and convenient place in Hong Kong, this is a great place to stay. Joe has a wonderfully kept place, suitable for one person or a couple, with ocean and mountain views. He is also a very responsive host, I never had to wait more than a few hours for an email response to anything.
I stayed at Joe's flat 1 month, its a very nicely renovated flat, comfortable, clean, and great view of the harbour. The upstairs balcony is great for a glass of wine in the evening or a nice breakfast in the morning. The flat is very well equipped, except for a washing machine, but there is a very cheap and good laundry spot next door. Great area, a lot of good restaurants, bars, galleries and markets around. Joe was very accommodating with the check-in and check-out. Would definitely recommend it.
Joe's place is great, He's very detailed and communicative in making sure everything with check-in and the apartment set-up. Very comfortable bed, living room and kitchen. While we only stayed one night, it was pleasant and hope we can return and stay longer on our next visit. Highly recommended.
My wife and I had just stayed at Joe's place for a month (Feb, 2013). And we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at his apartment. It was a great experience to stay at the neighbourhood where I used to grow up. Though the surrounding has changed after so many years, I can still remember bits and pieces of my childhood. The apartment is conveniently located with easy access to public transport. The inside is neatly decorated with a fantastic view of the harbour. My wife and I particularly enjoyed the night view from the rooftop balcony with a glass of wine. We were able to do some breakfast and even managed to cook a few light dinners from the open kitchen during our busy month.
Joe has provided us with wi-fi and we used it often for emails and FaceTime to communicate with our children and friends in Canada. Even though the apartment doesn't have a washer/dryer, we can do our laundries downstairs at the store for a cheap price and it's same day service. With the apartment located right next to the market, we were able to buy fresh produce and fruits daily. I was able to stay relatively active by jogging in the park which is only minutes away.
Overall, we would highly recommend anyone to stay here. Joe is a very nice and accommodating host. He met us a few times and we got along great. In fact, before we return to Canada this week, we are hoping to connect for a drink.
Our stay in Hong Kong has been a memorable one . Thank you, Joe.
Great Flat, perfect location and Joe was a caring and reliable host!
Will definitely go again!
Unterkunft komfortabel wie versprochen. Gut zu erreichen. Ein- Auschecken ohne Pronbleme. Der Gastgeber ist schnell bei der Beantwortung von Fragen.
Ein paar Handtücher wären schön gewesen, ebenso ein Besen oder Staubsauger.
Das Bad ist sehr dunkel und in der Anordnung etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, da der Boden nach dem Duschen lange mit Wasser bedeckt bleibt, was die Nutzung des WC erschwert.
If you choose this apartment, you're in good hands. Joe is a very accommodating host and though he was working abroad during my four night stay, any questions and scheduling tweaks were promptly handled over email. I especially appreciated his providing very thorough directions to his place, as well as other thoughtful details on living in his apartment. The place itself is very attractive and more than met my needs: big bed, nice couch, strong AC, epic iMac, solid wifi, kitchen, etc. Particularly worth mentioning is his rooftop balcony which, by virtue of the base elevation at Mid-Levels, offers an epic view of western HK island and some of Kowloon beyond. Can't ask for a more memorable way to start and end a day in HK. The area around his apartment is quite hilly, but is also a solid warm up to the physical nature of getting around HK. There are plenty of taxis roaming his street and nearby, which is very helpful given the long walk to the nearest subway station. Joe's neighborhood is also well served by bus, tram, and mini bus, so any bit of savvy with these modes can connect you to a subway station, if not anywhere in HK outright. A few other amenities: laundry mat and 7-Eleven next door, supermarket and Cafe de Coral right down the street. All in all, Joe's apartment is a very solid choice. Recommended.
We didn't meet Joe, but he seems a very cool guy and the organization for the keys, directions and so on was just perfect.
The apartment is located in a really cool neighbourhood in west HK exactly as described. The view from the 25th floor over the bay is just stunning.
Moreover, for HK standards, I think this apartment is quite big (please read: for HK standards... :)).
We stayed 6 days and had a very good time.
One negative note would be that we found it kind of noisy. The elevator is just next to the apartment and the windows are quite thin.
But then again: you are in the centre of Hong Kong - if you need quietness, I guess you picked the wrong destination... :)
There is also a roof top terrace which offers amazing views. I must say this was kind of messy and could have been neater.
Conclusion: i would certainly recommend this apartment.
joe made checking in very easy a great host thank you for everything
I've rented from various people/companies in my travels but Joe made it feel like you were a good friend using his place while he was away. This was my first experiencing renting from Airbnb and he made it a great one. You also have to remember, coming from the West, residential spaces in HK (East) are very different, but what the place offers in unique eastern experience and character, is offset greatly by the incredible view, comfortable bed, cold AC, and quality landlord. Joe is an upstanding guy.
