Cecile Gamst Berg was for me the ideal host, fully respecting my need for privacy and offering a clean quiet and compact living space with an exceptionally large and welcome bathroom - I should point out that I'm a 69 year old semi-retired Australian TV writer/director mainly Singapore-based, so the situation suited me perfectly....
This is a wonderful place if you are looking for a place to relax in Hong Kong without the city noise. It is in a remote area away from metropolitan Hong Kong. Cecille's studio is actually bigger than I expected. The place is clean and comfortable. Pubs, convenient stores, and several restaurants are just few steps away. It was nice for Cecilie to provide a local phone. That comes handy for calling for a local taxi. Yes, I will recommend Cecilie's place to others that wanted to be in the "countryside" of Hong Kong!
My stay in Cecilies Studio was great. The place was clean and had everything I needed. The bed was comfortable and there was a friendly dog who greeted me when I was leaving or coming back. The beach is just a short walk away and there are several bus lines stoping near the house. They will bring you everywhere on the island within 10 to 30 minutes, including Muy Wo where the ferry to Central Hong Kong leaves. I met Cecilie just briefly but the contact through e-mail and sms was good and her description to find the place is great. Big recommendation.
We enjoyed our stay at the studio. It was quiet and close to many cafes and the beach. It was a small space with three people. We liked the dog that greeted us.
Cecilie was a very welcoming host who even invited us out for dinner and shared her international experiences.
The room is cosy and has all the basics needed.
Friendly dogs too :)
We enjoyed and recommend!
Dear Cecilie, thank you very much for the opportunity to stay at your place! It was exactly what we were looking for. Location is great, the area around is beautiful, the flat is nice and clean and has everything what travelers need! Hope to stay at your place again one time ;)
This apartment is exactly how it is described. Compared to my previous spot in Hong Kong, it was very, very large in size!
It was easy to find the village, and while it seemed confusing at first, finding the apt up the stairs was simple with Cecelie's instructions. She has a very sweet dog names Lassie and she greeted me on the stairs every time I came in.
The apartment is about a 5-10 min walk to the beach and to a couple local restaurants. Very convenient. Pui is an awesome beach. They clean it daily, and there is a snack shop and restaurant there. The water is warm and the people (an cows) are friendly.
It is a very quiet village, so if you are looking for some peace and quiet, I highly recommend.
There is very convenient bus service (stops right outside the apt.), but the schedule is a little sporadic. Celcelie leaves the schedule though to make it easier.
I did not get a chance to spend much time with Celcelie, but we did meet on my way out and she made sure I got a taxi. I felt very welcome. She even gives you a cell phone during your stay!
I highly recommend!
In a nice area, far from city but nice getaway. It was a little hard to find for us as our flight was delayed and we arrived at Cecilie's at about 2am so it was quite dark and our taxi dropped us off a little further down the road. Overall very clean. Big washroom but room itself was a little snug for 3 people. Cecilie was very helpful. Overall good stay!
I had a great experience in Pui O! The studio was small and clean, everything worked great! Cecilie was an amazing host and helped me when I needed it for a few things. I even got to spend an afternoon with her and some of her out of town friends. It was wonderful! Definitely considering extending my next business trip to stay here again.
Cheers mate! That was a fun afternoon.
Great place to stay! Has everything we needed and was perfect because is away from all the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong!
