We loved the little studio offered by Cecille. It was close to some lovely locally owned restaurants and the beach. We were surrounded by friends in a foreign land and felt very welcome. Cecille was always willing to help us figure things out. I loved her honesty about what places were worth spending our precious 5 days visitin. Thank you! I can't wait to come back.
A quiet area of Hong Kong not far from beach and mountains. Some beautiful scenery nearby and close to ferry. Host was very friendly and helpful and provided detailed instructions and photos for getting there. However it is a bit difficult to find and involves climbing a number of stairs. Room was ordinary although bathroom was big and clean. Bedroom was well equipped but small and not as clean as it could be. I feels it was quite overpriced as hotel nearby charged a lot less and included breakfast. Depends on expectations.
Small studio attached to main house, friendly host. In a small coastal village, Pui O on south Lantau. Great scenery , hiking trails and beach nearby.
My family of three stayed at this apartment for three days and our expectations were met. The flat is no doubt small, but it has all that we needed. There was a single bed for my teenager, and a pull-out double bed for my husband and me. The small pantry provided all the cutlery and crockery that we needed. We loved the huge bathroom. It looked newly renovated too.
We were left on our own but the owner is always around should any help be needed. She even provided us with a mobile phone for us to contact her and also to make local calls. We did just that when we experienced some problem with the flush and it was rectified immediately on the day itself, so there was no inconvenience at all for us.
There are many buses at the stop which is a mere five minutes' walk from the apartment to take us to various places of interest throughout the whole island. The owner has printed the timing of the different bus services and placed the lists in the room. There was also information given on where to eat in the vicinity.
The stay was most peaceful and quiet. Do walk across the road to spend some time at the Pui O beach. We also enjoyed the walk through the rustic wetlands where water buffaloes grazed nonchalantly. The lovely dog at the door always greeted us by wagging her tail. We had not heard her bark at all in the three days we were there.
