Looking for an existing flat to share May to August
Posted March 24th, 2013 - 3:32 am by from Yreka, United States (Permalink)
I'm from the US, non smoker, teaching English through drama and dance in HK, world traveler.
I'm looking for a flat share starting May 1 preferably some place with some nature close by. Lamma Island or a central location in HK like Sheung Wan...not too far out on the MTR.
I live in Shatin now...it's OK.
I'm easy going but don't like too many people to one bathroom :) My budget is around hkd 5000 including all utilities...would prefer less...Would be nice to socialize a little with the person or I'm living with...

I'm from Italy, I'm a young space engineer going to work in CUHK, from May 2. I'm looking for a decent place to stay. I planned to come one week earlier..and of course I would like to get a place as close as possible to CUHK...My budget will be as yours (hopefully lower).
So, I propose myself as sharemate...and I'm wondering how is your present place in Shatin? How much does it cost?
By the way, I'll keep in touch if I find something out...

Thanks for your response Lorenzo,
In Shatin I'm sharing with the landlords, an older Chinese couple. They have a very different life style...I pay close to HKD 5000...far too much, but HK is very expensive. On Lamma Island some people I know have cheaper rents...depending where you work, it's a long commute. I would like to live with someone I can talk to and socialize.
Yes please stay in touch
If you don't have an existing flat share situation landlords here usually ask you to sign a one year contract...

I got a studio apartment with a spare clean, tidy, airconditioned bedroom. It's close to Hung Hum. Not sure if you are interested. Can send you some photos for review if interested : )
