My home is a refuge from the crazy city life, but convenient to access with a short ferry ride. I live in a community with a mix of expatriates and locals. The location is beautiful and amenities are extremely close. A beach and hiking trails are right outside the door.
Disney World is in eye's view and fireworks are displayed each night.
If required room service and or/help is available from my domestic helper. My domestic helper is on a salary and is excellent with ironing and washing.
There are many restaurants and shops just outside the door. A tennis court, gym facility and pool is available for a small fee.
I have an incredible espresso machine, cable, internet access and a flat screen TV that swivels so you can comfortably watch TV in bed or in the living room area. You may never leave the flat.
There is a small balcony for you to enjoy your coffee in the morning. The flat is completely renovated and all appliances are new; hassle free.
The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. It is a place to meet so many people from around the world. Transportation in Hong Kong is very efficient. No cars are required; a taxi ride is cheap.
I am a 35 year old Canadian teacher, teaching science at an international school. I enjoy outdoor adventure, cooking, travelling and reading. I live on my own and have many holidays during the year especially the summer months.
I am excited to try this house swap and hope to meet some wonderful people along the way.
Hong Kong is an exciting place to be. Hope you get a chance to take it in.
