About this listing
Our gem of a 1 bedroom is a rare find in HK. From our high ceilings, a spacious layout, to our custom made four post bed, all a block from the Kennedy Town MTR (Exit B, 7 min ride to Central), we are certain you'll feel at home in our gorgeous space.
Our space has an exceptionally open feel and layout for Hong Kong. High ceilings, recently renovated wood design flooring, walls and kitchen cabinetry, make the space feel like a true home oasis. The large windows facing out of the bedroom and living room (adorned with custom made bamboo blinds) bring in natural light. The living room and kitchen windows overlook pleasant greenery and trees, which bloom bright fuchsia flowers in the spring time. The bathroom has faux wood flooring (nice on your feet when showering), a bamboo frame mirror and excellent water pressure. Our living room has a large designer L sofa, facing a wall that's perfect for projecting tv/movies. Three original Thai paintings brighten the dining area, with an expandable solid wood dining table perfect for entertaining or as a work space. The bedroom has a custom made queen size elm wood four post bed, equipped with a Sealy posturepedic mattress, and an open mesh closet with room for storage. We also have a state of the art baby/toddler crib (mesh siding with wooden frame, 120cm in length). The kitchen is sizey with a large fridge, inductor stoves, and an espresso machine from Europe that makes a strong brew. We are happy to welcome you to our beloved home!
Guests have access to all the amenities of the apartment including: wifi, air conditioning/fan, espresso machine, state of the art baby/toddler crib with top grade mattress (mesh siding, wood structure, 120cm length), fully equipped kitchen, hot showering...full use of space.
As well as: a few min walk to MTR station (and many busses), cheap full service laundering next door ($32HKD for over 7 pounds), supermarkets less than a block away; close walks to high quality eateries of all cuisines/budgets, bars, parks, public swimming pool, an Australian brewery, and the waterfront.
We are happy to share with you our favorite spots and recommendations! :)
Interaction with guests
We are happy to be on call and help out as much or as little as you prefer. Please don't hesitate to inquire about anything.
Kennedy town is fast becoming a trendy hot spot where old Hong Kong meets new. While some of the oldest, most traditional local dim sum and corner stores/spots are still thriving and intact, there is now a fantastic mix of international cuisine, bars (including craft beer and breweries), and a mix of expats and locals. I love this neighborhood for its convenience, tight knit community, proximity to the sea, while being a 7 minute train ride to Central Hong Kong.
Kennedy Town MTR, exit B is a block away, as well as several busses that are also within a few minute walk from our door. Hong Kong's public transportation is very convenient, cheap, and easy. We are happy to show you around!
-No smoking permitted in unit (there's rooftop access a few floors up, or a bar immediately next door downstairs if you must smoke :)
-Keep as energy efficient and considerate as possible. Make sure all electronic outlets/AC (beside the refrigerator) are turned off every time you leave the apartment.
-Strive to maintain a tidy space (we hope to preserve the cleanliness and comfort of our home to host as many guests as we can. Making sure to wipe down the white kitchen counter after cooking, and keeping the place generally tidy helps us maintain a comfortable home)!
-No shoes preferred (in keeping with our HK roots, we prefer and are accustomed to removing shoes upon entering space. It keeps the space cleaner, and makes you feel comfortable too)!
