We have been living in Hong Kong since 1997 and are passionate about travel, food, fitness and dancing. We have been providing our guests memorable stays at our apartment since 2012

We hope to have the luck and opportunity to host you too!

The Apartment:

Originally a 3 bedroom apartment, there are now 2 bedrooms, one with a king size bed the other with a queen size bed. In the living room there is a new queen sized sofa-bed and two single sofas and although not sofa beds, can comfortably sleep one (small) person/child each. Additionally there is an air mattresses that can be setup in the living room where there is plenty of floor space. We have bedding and pillows for all. There is also a cot and a high chair too

The elimination of 1 bedroom means that the living area is very open spacious and maximises the panoramic spectacular views of the harbour, park, city and mountains

The interior of the apartment offers a simple but modern and very comfortable look and feel. The apartment features hardwood floors, a kitchen with views over Victoria Park, the largest park on the island. The master room contains a super king size Louis Phillipe style bed with Simmons mattress, a chest of drawers and built in wardrobe with sliding tinted glass doors. The master bedroom also features an ensuite bathroom with power shower. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed with Tempur memory foam mattress and Louis Phillipe style wardrobe. The apartment also has a second 'guest bathroom'. Both bedrooms have harbour and city views

Unlike the majority of apartments and even hotels in Hong Kong where you look out the window to see other buildings almost within arms reach, the apartment has an unobstructed 180+ degree view of the harbour, park city & mountain skyline. On good days Lantau Island is clearly visible through the harbour channel and if you watch closely you can see the fireworks light up in Disneyland each night. If you are lucky enough to book the apartment on New Years Eve, 1st July, 1st Oct or during Chinese New Year, you will have a spectacular view of the harbour fireworks display. The building light shows every evening on the harbourside buildings are also clearly visible
