This is a bright and airy walk-up apartment in a tong lau, or traditional old building, in one of Hong Kong's coolest areas for art and culture. It is next door to the Sai Ying Pun MTR station. Sai Ying Pun is one the oldest neighbourhoods on the island and it is now in the early stages of gentrification. There are many cool restaurants and cafes and you're within walking distance of Central.

The space

This is a newly renovated 480 sq foot 1-bedroom apartment in a recently refurbished building (scaffolding is gone!). It's very bright with lots of windows and relatively open/uncluttered spaces for a flat this size. I have sleeping mats for a third person if needed. This is an 8TH FLOOR walk-up apartment, there is NO LIFT.

Guest access

You'll have access to the entire flat, but please respect my privacy and do not open the closets or storage areas. There are places for you to hang clothes.

Interaction with guests

You will be met at the apartment by my assistant, who will give you the keys, show you the apartment, and be on call should you have any questions. She is available to do a weekly cleaning/linens during longer stays if requested. Please arrange timing with her.

Other things to note

THERE IS NO LIFT IN THIS BUILDING!!! The flat is on the 8th floor, which is accessed via stairs.

The mattress, while of a good quality and condition, is exceptionally firm. This may not be to everyone's liking.

Bright and airy, as advertised it is 8 storeys up so a good stretch for my legs. Slept well, everything worked, managed to get a lot of work done with the desks and good wifi. Location is fantastic for local eateries, market and shops. Right on door step of the underground. Will stay again if available.

Good guests during bad times...Solomon and his girlfriend stayed in my flat for a month, and experienced multiple typhoons that caused some storm-related hassles for them. They coped with it very well, communicated with me and were understanding as we tried to keep them comfortable. I appreciated that.

Great light, great space, cool views! Just be prepared to walk up eight flights of stairs, personally, it's a pretty good work out. The only thing was the hot water... it can get tricky sometimes. Be sure to turn on the heater for a good while to get a quick hot shower.

Thanks for your review. I noticed you had the temperature dial turned down...I'll leave detailed instructions for future guests to ensure they have enough hot water.

Everything was great. The location of house is perfect. The MTR (subway) station is nearby less than 3 minutes. You can be possible to experience local culture around the town, not only famous places. As he explained there is no LIFT!!! It was okay, but it is possible to be little tough when you are comming back after the city tour. Otherwise, everything is great and I like it. I definitely recommand this place!! I will use this place again if I can visit HK later. Also, thank you for Elisa's help!! Thank you!!

Great stay in what was a bigger than expected flat. Walking the eight flights was difficult the first time, but almost enjoyable, once you get the hang of it. Elisa was extremely helpful and made the trip that much easier. Thank you both!

I love the outdoors, sea air and blue sky, but I also enjoy cities. I like motorcycles and boats. I like my whiskey straight and rum dark. I enjoy heavy seas and despise light jazz. I am from Canada.
