Our home

Set at the southwest end of HK Island (Pokfulam), our home offers great sea views overlooking neighbouring islands along with one of the busiest shipping channels in the world. The location is approximately 10 min by taxi to the central entertainment and business district of HK and around 45 min by bus to the HK International Airport. Our apartment is approximately 150m2 in size on the 8th floor of a 13 storey residential block and comprises 3 bedrooms, 2 bath (1 en-suite), modern kitchen, utility room, living room and dining, and balcony area with BBQ. The house is fully equipped with air-conditioning, cable TV, wireless highspeed internet, plasma TV, DVD, family fridge, wine fridge and all the facilities a home should have. Building facilities include tennis court and swimming pool along with easy access to the city via taxi or bus. Hong Kong is centrally located in Asia with easy access to Shanghai (2hrs flight), Bangkok (2.5hrs), Singapore (3.5hrs), Japan (4hrs), Bali (4hrs), Hanoi (1hr) and many other destinations. It is an ideal location to base yourself when travelling around Asia sightseeing and holidaying.

Who we are

  1. We are Catriona and Ronnie of Scottish and Australian descent. Catriona is an architect and Ronnie an engineer. We have been in HK for many years and are looking for a break away from the big city to enjoy the outdoor life of the country. We love Europe, particularly Paris, and we would like to explore more of the countryside. We have a young baby and are looking forward to spending some time as a family in a different and more slow paced environment. Catriona's family is based in Scotland and we would like to be closer so they can enjoy time with their first grandchild.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are conveniently located just a few minutes drive away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Hong Kong. A day can be enjoyed by the pool in the sun or sightseeiing through the old districts of HK. Just 10 minutes in a taxi are the popular SoHo and Lan Kwai Fong entertainment districts. These areas include restaurants, bars, shopping and the delights that Hong Kong alleyways provide. We live conveniently just 5 minutes walk from the Hong Kong Trail that weaves its way around the country parks of Hong Kong. The peak area of HK can be reached with a 1hr hike along the HK Trail while beaches are around 20 min taxi trip. Ferry piers that access outer islands along with Kowloon is a mere 15 min taxi ride, while the train station that takes you into southern China is 20 minutes by taxi. HK island is small in size so travelling around is generally easy. Public transport (taxis, buses, mini buses, underground trains etc) is cheap and efficient and it is easy for a tourist to navigate the city. There are many aspects of HK to explore from the old to the new, that can be easily done at a leisurely pace.
