There is great hiking right outside the door and plenty of beaches a short ride away. There is a water-sports centre on the outskirts of Sai Kung for those who want to go kayaking or Paddle-boarding. Our house is the perfect for guests who want to go hiking, enjoy some watersports, as well as explore the area's attractions and Sai Kung town.

The space

THE HOUSE

The house is a typical village house with three floors and a furnished roof with fantastic views down over Sai Kung and the sea. The house is in a very small village and is very quiet.

The guest bedroom is on the top floor of the house along with our master bedroom. There are stairs leading up to the roof terrace. At the top of the stairs is also a fridge that guests are welcome to use to save them having to go all the way down to the kitchen to get a cold drink, milk for coffee etc. There is are tea and coffee making facilities in the bedroom.

On the middle floor there is the living room / second bedroom. This room can be used as a living room if you are staying as a couple or an individual,or as a second bedroom if you are a party of 3 or 4. On this floor is also the second bathroom with shower, toilet and sink, and our daughter's bedroom.

The downstairs consists of the kitchen, a bathroom and the living room / dining room.

THE ROOMS

The guest bedroom is small but is very comfortable. The room measures about 150 sq ft and has an ensuite shower room. There is a chest of drawers, a wardrobe and a queen size bed with a bedside table each side. The bed has an orthopaedic mattress and is super comfortable. If guests are staying for a week or more we are very happy to let them have use of the wardrobe, but unless requested, the wardrobe will have the hosts belongings in it. There is a large TV but there are no TV channels. You can plug your device into the TV to watch your own movies, or we have a DVD player with many DVD's to choose from. There is a small kettle, cups and a selection of teas and coffees, creamer, sugar etc in the room, milk can be kept in the fridge just up stairs. There is always a fresh pitcher of water by the bed.

The ensuite shower room has a small sink and toilet as well as the shower. There is shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, hand wash, etc and we can supply an emergency toothbrush on request should you forget your own!

All towels and linen are provided, for longer term rentals the linen will be changed weekly.

The second room is very large and can be used as a living room area or as a second bedroom. The sofa-bed is a double, not a queen, but is very comfortable according to our guests! This room can only be booked as a second bedroom, it will never be booked by separate guests (so you won't be sharing the house with other guests, just the hosts.) The room and is very large, about 450 sq. feet and can also accommodate a cot (we have a Gracco travel cot for guests use at no extra charge.) Guest are welcome to use the computer in this room while they are there, it is also possible to watch movies on the computer. There is a chaise lounge and the sofa which converts into the double bed. There is also the possibility of a queen sized airbed if needed. There is also a Nespresso Coffee machine for guests to use.

Please note that if you are two separate people who do not wish to share a bed, you will need to pay extra for the second bedroom, which is the equivalent of a third person ($400 per night)

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use the middle floor living room. The downstairs living room is the family room and is not a shared space.

Guests are welcome to use supplies from the kitchen such as cutlery, plates etc. if they would like to have a BBQ or breakfast (which they provide themselves) on the roof terrace, but it is our family kitchen so it is not available for cooking meals.

There is also the roof terrace which guests are welcome to use if the weather is fine. This 700sq ft space has fabulous views looking out one side to the mountains and the other down to Sai Kung and the sea. There is a charcoal BBQ on the roof which guests are welcome to use, and a fridge just inside the door to the roof.

Please let us know if you would like to use the roof and / or BBQ so that we can get it ready for you as the cushions and umbrella are stored inside to to keep them looking nice. You can buy charcoal for the BBQ from one of the shops in Sai Kung (same price!) We have all the tools you need for the BBQ and can supply foil etc.

Interaction with guests

We will be very happy to help with anything during your stay and can also help organise or recommend trips to other parts of Hong Kong.

We do not speak Chinese so if you are coming from China and do not speak much English this will not be a good place for you as it makes communication very difficult and there are quite a few things we need to communicate about, like the alarm system, facilities etc. (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translate is not very accurate and can cause problems, plus does not help with face to face!

Other things to note

We have one dog (very sweet natured) and two cats who are rarely seen as they hide from everyone!

Please note that if you are two separate people who do not wish to share a bed, you will need to pay extra for the second bedroom, which is the equivalent of a third person ($400 per night)

Tara, her helper Dee and her lovely daughter Ella were such great hosts! From booking taxis, directions to the house, to sharing of toys, they were generous with their time and home. My daughter had such a fantastic time playing with Ella. The walk to the house is very relaxing. The playground quite awesome indeed! I would suggest washer access for longer stays, but otherwise, one of the most pleasant airbnb experiences I've had.

I loved the quiet location but so convenient to transport to town. It was perfect for our stay and Tara and her family are lovely. She was available to assist every time I needed it and offered some great suggestions on sightseeing! The home is clean and comfortable and I would absolutely stay here again if I return to this area of Hong Kong.

it's a great experience to spend a night at Tara's. Tara is very nice and her hospitality make us feel home. The house facility is good and comfy and we had a really good rest after all day hiking. Jewell is cute and give us big welcome even from out of the house.we will definitely choose Tara's if we revisit Sai Kung

It feels like home! They're very artistic and creative. Ate Dee is very helpful and always smiling :) The dog is like a dream dog of any pet/dog lover, so quiet and sweet. The cats are always MIA. Didn't get a chance to play with 'em. Hehe The view is awesome from the rooftop, we did stargazing there. Just call Tara in advance to get the directions clear, it's not far but you might have a difficulty finding it for the first time, and Sai Kung has very limited accommodation. -Jenny & Lu with Lee & Ralfe

I live in Hong Kong with my husband and daughter, we have lived here for nearly 20 years most of that in the Sai Kung area. We love Sai Kung for its beautiful hikes and beaches, The atmosphere and the people, and the opportunity it gives my daughter to grow up in the countryside
