“Tidy and simply furnished little flat with very relaxed and accommodating host. We liked the feeling of being local by staying off the beaten tourist route. We bought SIM cards with good data packs so despite having no WiFi in the flat we could access full data for our needs. We caught a taxi straight to the flat from the airport which was affordable, had a little trouble getting in as there were three entrances needing codes and we only had two codes... the concierge were a bit suspicious I think, and surprised that westerners were staying there. We worked out that the gate code is also the foyer code. Ask Nadia for a second set of keys as it is easy to lock yourself out of the flat, and then there is no option to get back in. We couldn’t find the remotes for the air conditioning and there was no instruction book and no response from the host who was probably out of range. It was very very hot and humid so check with Nadia before you get there how to turn on the three air conditioners. Also the shower water was cold (refreshing in the heat for a little while...) until we worked out there was a switch for the water heater in the hall. The little idiosyncrasies of other people’s homes! Bring your own towels. Despite these small hiccups we were grateful to have a handy quiet and clean home in Hong Kong, slept well, and loved the views. I’d be happy to stay at Nadia’s again. ”
Nadia 's reviewsAs a host (5)
“We are very thankful to Nadia for sharing her place with us. Great location, close to metro station and also great change to see how locals live. Convenient if Disneyland and Ngong Ping is on your list. ”
“Thanks Nadia for letting me & my family staying at her place. It’s a wonderful experience and everything (like supermarket, restaurant, shopping mall, market, etc) is within walking distance. Our children especially like to play in clubhouse and the park nearby, we are really grateful to Nadia! ”
“We had a great stay at Nadia’s flat, perfectly situated by a nice walk-in-the-park distance to Tsing Yi station. Our 2 year old daughter also enjoyed the condo’s playing areas and the “big” Hong Kong apartment space. We like also very much the view from the two balconies at each end of the flat. The location is very nice since there area around is very local and relaxed but still a few a stations away from Central and one station to the airport. Since we also like very much Lantau Island, to get there is very easy and close. Nadia gave exact indications and were always available if we had a any questions. We are very thankful and we have a wonderful time.”
“Our visit was quite short, but the trips Nadia recommended were excellent and made our visit all the more memorable. We also enjoyed Daniel's Restaurant nearby for excellent food and good value. A bonus was that the Lantern Festival was on while we were there, making our trips through the lovely local park quite memorable.”
