This is my Hong Kong listing apt. What you see in this condo is what you are getting: A HARBOUR view, fully equipped half studio private condo. Unlike most hotels, which give you a said perfect room and eventually turns out to be a room without a view, or only 4 walls. This is my Seaview Studio Apt in Saiwanho MTR.
THE CONDO. This is a ENTIRE HOME/APT, not just only a room! This apartment is located at the residential / urban district, Sai Wan Ho. Featured with stylish furnished and located in the east side of Hong Kong Island. Most importantly, you can see a nice Victoria Harbor view overlooking the Kowloon East. A 26 square meters (280 square feet) condo comes with a real double bed, a three seated DAY BED, a hot shower bathroom, an open kitchen with gas stoves with all facilities, desk, bedding linen and towels provided, etc.
A no-frills budget stay in a clean, comfy, tidy and safe environment. My helper will come twice times a week (if requested) in the afternoon to do simple clean up.
Two person occupancy with an extra kid maximum. (ONE DOUBLE BED and ONE DAY BED) Check-in 3pm, check-out 12noon, can be flexible if pre-arranged
TRANSPORTATION. Right next to Sai Wan Ho MTR station, meaning super convenient to get to anywhere in the city. Our many public transport links include frequent MTR trains, buses, trams and minibuses. Cross harbor bus goes to Kowloon side to Tsim Sha Tsui, Nathan Road and Mongkok.
For example: Airport express bus A12 takes 40mins to transfer you to and from the airport. 15 mins MTR ride to Causeway Bay. 20 mins MTR ride to Central. 25 mins MTR ride to Kowloon Tsim Sha Tsui and Mongkok. 1 min to Tram station, accessing from Kennedy Town to Shau Kei Wan. 1 min to bus stop to most area in Hong Kong and Cross Harbor bus to Kowloon
AMENITITES. There are three lifts from the Ground Floor to the condo, no struggling of luggage up the stairs.
We provides: @ High speed WiFi internet @ 36" LED TV @ Sound Bar HiFi with DVD player and radio @ Cable TV with HBO, CNN, BBC and local channels @ Refrigertor @ Washing machine with detergent provided @ Air-conditioning @ Hair dryer @ Wardrobes @ Gas water heater @ Kettle @ Clean linen and bath towels @ The building has 24 hours security and guide
So, all you need is bring your own luggage and your personal tooth-brush, that's it!
SHOPPING Just only a leisure 5 mins walk to Cityplaza in Taikoo Shing and Kornhill Plaza (both MTR assessable), with big supermarket. 24-hours convenience shops, pharmacies, Chinese restaurants, wet market, fruit market, HK style local cafe, movie theaters are just short walk away.
CULTURE and RECREATION For more cultural side in the neighborhood, there is Sai Wan Ho Harbor Park; Hong Kong Film Archive and Sai Wan Ho Cultural Centre are very near by.
In Summer, you can even easily get to SHEK O beach, Shek O Beach is a sandy public beach at Shek O. It is a popular weekend and holiday destination, offering a public barbecue area and many restaurants. The rocky cliffs provide an excellent place for sports climbing. Around one mile north of Shek O beach, after passing the Shek O Country Club, is Big Wave Bay. As its name suggests, big waves roll on to the beach, propelled by the wind, making it a popular destination for surfers. Wind surfers can be found in the sea off Big Wave Bay and Shek O beaches. Take a taxi, mini-bus or a direct bus from Shau Kei Wan bus station will go there.
