$4000, Large furnished room available August 1st, 2013
Posted May 16th, 2013 - 1:11 am by from Hong Kong Island, China (Permalink)
I have a large furnished room near HK University available August 1st, 2013. Unique location on the hillside overlooking Pok Fu Lam village. Fresh air, trees, birds singing outside! Hiking trails behind the house. Less than an hour walk to the Peak. Nearby shopping mall, grocery, and bus terminal. Buses take you most places in HK within 30 minutes! Even the beach at Repulse Bay in 30 minutes!
Airport shuttle takes one hour.

The apartment needs to be seen to understand as it is like nothing else in HK. There are two ladies living downstairs. They are quiet and clean. They leave each day 6am to 8pm for work.

Share kitchen and bathroom. All kitchen supplies, refrigerator and washing machine included.

This place is perfect for a student or someone needing easy access to the airport on a regular basis.

$4000 HKD per month includes utilities! New AC ready for the hot months ahead! No lease required.

Call Eleanor at 6857-2205 to see the place.

Hi Ellen,

I'm interested in the room for August only - is it a single or double room? You see...I'm looking for a room for me and my boyfriend (we're Scottish, travelling to HK to work for a month in a summer school teaching English) for the month of August (3rd to 28th). We're clean, tidy, we love nature - your apartment sounds perfect.

If it is a double of course we don't mind paying more for because there are two of us. Let me know how much it would be

Melissa :)

Hi Melissa,

This might work out perfectly for everybody. There is a a guy living in the apartment now that will be traveling for the month of August. He wants to keep the place and return to work on is PHD. The apartment is really cool for Hong Kong living. Like no other. Photos can be seen on my profile.

I am in the USA but my girlfriend Eleanor can show you the place. Her phone number should be on the listing. She cannot log in to the CS site for some reason so if you need to you can communicate through me.

Safe travels,

Hi there! I won't be showing up until the end of July but I'm interested in seeing the place once I arrive. What months are still available for the place? I have temporary accommodations so I'm not in a rush.

Hi Sarah,

It would be perfect if you just needed the month of August. The guy living there now will be out of town for the month so you would have a nice furnished place to start out. There may be another small room come available around that time too.

Check my profile for photos of the HK apartment. The large room upstairs is what would be available August 1st. It has a large comfortable bed, couch, desk and chairs. Also refrigerator, microwave, washing machine. The two girls that live downstairs are rarely there and very quiet/ clean. They would also be great contacts for getting information about HK.

For internet we use a modem that you pay as you use the data transfer. That seems to work well for everybody so far.

We are asking $4000 and that includes utilities, Cold AC and no lease required. Let me know if you are interested. I am in the USA but my girlfriend live near the apartment and can show you the room.

Safe travels,

Dee Hemphill
