My place is a 5- 10 minute walk from art, culture, restaurant dining, bank, groceries, and many transportation links. On a quiet street, with a green park around the corner, you'll have the best of both worlds, very central, but removed from the bustle and noise. You’ll love my place because of the ambiance, the neighborhood, the natural light, and the comfy bed! My place is great for couples, friends, and solo adventurers.

The space

The home is full of character and is decorated with interesting items from around the world. An enormous living room window slides open to bring the feeling of the airy outside into the apartment. It is situated on a quiet street where trees green the neighborhood, and a small, leafy, urban park is only 3-4 minute walk from home.

Interaction with guests

If I am in Hong Kong at the same time as you, I will be very happy to meet and offer tips and suggestions. If I am traveling, the cleaning lady will be available to help if necessary.

I will provide a helpful list of tips to make your stay interesting and fun. I can offer suggestions for restaurants and bars, markets, neighborhoods for exploring, as well as suggested day trips. From the home you can easily access grocery stores, bank, and a range of public transportation links.

Other things to note

Midlevels is a very safe, residential neighborhood built in the hills above Central. There are a variety of ways to reach my apartment.

Coming from the Airport Express Central Station, a taxi will cost only about HK$65 (around US$8)

Connecting with the MTR, Minibus 45A runs every 10 minutes or so and passes directly in front of my door.

If you prefer to walk from the MTR, you can take the stairs which are built right into the hill. My apartment is a several-minutes walk uphill.

Taxis are cheap and plentiful. Returning from Soho or Central at night, a taxi from Caine Road will cost you as little as HKD$30 (USD$4).

I have a cleaner who comes a few times a week. She keeps the flat clean and in good order. She can help with laundry, and you can make a paid arrangement for an authentic Sri Lankan meal prepared for you.

Gioia's palce is wonderful! Located in a quiet residential area and just a few minutes walk to the MRT. The place is clean, cozy, very spacious and tastefully decorated. Gioia has been very responsive and accommodating, and our communications have been very smooth. I got the chance and pleasure to meet Gioia, and she's very nice and friendly and offered that I could come back to rest or shower because I have a late flight. I would recommend anyone visiting HK to stay at Gioia's place. And I will definitely be coming back to her place the next time I visit Hk!

Gioia's house isn't only beautiful and full of thoughtful decoration, but it really does make you feel at home. The bed was large and comfortable, the balcony and chairs were perfect for lounging, and the a/c saved us from the intense summer heat. Everything was gorgeous at the house. Can't wait to come back again!

Hello Anthony. I'm very happy you enjoyed your stay in my home. Regarding the balcony, I don't have one as such, perhaps you mean the sitting area by the large window. With the trees, it does seem to bring a feeling of being outside. It was a pleasure to host you and you're welcome back any time!

Gioia is super sweet and responsive! She made sure Pablo and I checked in alright without any hassles. The place is as lovely as shown on the listed photos. Good value for money with no doubt :) If I have to be picky, it would be the location which requires walking uphill, but it is well connected with minibuses and is only 5-10mins walk to Sai Ying Pun MTR station. Overall, it's still very good and I will definitely recommend people to stay at Gioia's place! Thank you again!

Hi Amanda. I'm happy you and Pablo enjoyed your stay in my home. Agreed, if you don't like the walk uphill, the convenient minibuses drive right past my door. You're always welcome back.

Hi, I'm Gioia. For several years I've used airbnb as my go-to source for accommodation. I enjoy staying in a home and getting a more local experience. Recently, I've branched out to become a host.

A bit of background about myself. I am from the United States and currently living in Hong Kong. I teach children in an international school. Traveling is a passion of mine, and I take trips abroad every chance I get.

It's a pleasure to get to know people from different countries and cultures. I hope to welcome you here in Hong Kong and will offer tips to make your visit a memorable one.
