Feel like you're living in HK with an expat lifestyle...

I'm an Aussie professional who understands the most fun travelling is meeting people. Happy for you to join me heading out and see what HK is about.

Comfy room, excellent location and everything that you may need.

The space

Welcome to my home. I've specifically chosen the apartment and arranged it like any Aussie would. There is a communal rooftop (which no one else uses and hence is basically private).

- INCREDIBLY CONVENIENT LOCATION. I guess you've read other ads so won't go into detail. MTR 100m, Tram 100m, Buses. Best thing is Wan Chai market basically downstairs. If you crave a home cooked meal you can't go wrong. And I'm on the quiet side of Wan Chai. None of the noise, dodginess and shenanigans of Lockhart Rd (although its good for a drink every now and then... seriously, just a drink). Hennessy Rd has heaps of buses all times of day and night. China visa office 10 min walk away. Quiet street off the main road...

- WHY WAN CHAI AND NOT CENTRAL? You get a more local and "real" perspective of Hong Kong. More of a residential feel compared to the office buildings of central. But you are still only two MTR stops away and can get anywhere in HK very easily and quickly.

- ROOFTOP... Yes it's communal but no one uses it. I'm on the top level so no additional stairs required. Just move the outdoor furniture in/out each time you use it. Great for a BBQ (I have a portable Weber) which you are more than welcome to use. Perfect for a cigarette/cigar if that's you. Fantastic open view to Happy Valley. I really enjoy just chilling out in my own secluded space... you too will appreciate it given how dense and crowded HK can be.

- WESTERN BATHROOM (separate toilet and shower). None of this shower over the toilet chinese inconvenient stuff... Instantaneous gas hot water. One bathroom so I will be sharing it with you.

- BED... Private room with a full double bed (HK size so 137cm x 190cm). It's a soft comfy mattress. Definitely not rock hard chinese style. Plenty of closet space. Air con, sheets, towels etc as you would expect

It is an older apartment building but inside is really well maintained. You will feel very comfortable. Elevator... thank god it's not a walk up.

Guest access

You get access to everything that an expat in HK would need to live.

- MY LOCAL KNOWLEDGE... the best cantonese roast meats, wanton noodles, local chinese cafes, dim sum, walks, bakery, vegetarian restaurant, dumplings, local non dodgy thai massage places... all within walking distance. And the coolest nightspots and hip restaurants around LKF and Wan Chai and elsewhere.

- KITCHEN, COOKING, BBQ. And with Wan Chai market literally downstairs you can buy whatever you need if you crave a home cooked meal. Of course stuff like oil, salt, pepper, soy etc are good for you to use. Fridge, microwave, 2 gas burners, kettle... and all the other the usual kitchen gear.

- UNLIMITED INTERNET AND WIFI (1,000 mpbs which is the fastest you can get in residential homes).

- PHONE... if I'm around you're welcome to make local calls using my mobile.

- CABLE TV... On demand movies, English Premier League, La Liga and heaps more. And a 42 inch LED TV to watch it on.

- MAID once a week. But arranged more often as guests come and go. She is wonderful and irons as well (depending on timing of your visit of course) but you can use the iron if you really have the urge.

- LAUNDRY washing machine. Same deal... maid can do it if timing suits.

- BEDDING Standard bed linen, towels, hair dryer, dehumidifier etc.

Of course my room is mine... your room will be yours. Standard housemate type arrangement with everything else :) Hope you get the sense from my writing style that I'm pretty relaxed about stuff.

Interaction with guests

I'm social, loving life in a new city and meeting cool, interesting people. Totally respect that everyone is individual and has their unique preferences.

I'll make every effort to be around when you first arrive. But sometimes it will be necessary for me to tell you where I leave my spare key. More than welcome to call/sms/(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) me anytime. I won't respond if I'm sleeping :)

I'm used to an active, social lifestyle so there will be periods of time where I'm hardly at home. But to keep sane I'll have my evenings or days on the weekend just bumming on the couch at home.

Other things to note

Check in/out really flexible. All dependent upon guests before/after. But I'm happy for you to leave your stuff around depending on when you're shipping out.

My stay at Eddies was fantastic - really ten out of ten! My visit to Hong Kong was my first overseas holiday; Eddie was helpful and made my accommodation arrangements so easy. He had plenty of advice on where to go and what to see which was great. The guest room was just what I needed: plenty of storage and a really comfy bed. Perfect for after a long day of exploring. His place is literally around the corner from major public transport facilities (trains, buses, trams), and right in the heart of Wan Chai. Can highly recommend Eddies place to all!

From the start of my booking process, Eddie was really happy to answer any questions and give advice. The apartment is very close to a subway in a really secure apartment. Eddies instructions on how to get to his place was on point, and he was there to welcome me to his place. His home is tidy and clean and quiet. The shared outside balcony has amazing views and the bedroom itself, though on the smaller side fitted a double bed (the most comfortable bed ever) and drawers, and the all essential air conditioner. The thoughtful sides of a bottle of waters, a towel and chocolates was a nice touch. Though I only saw Eddie in the evenings, every time we spoke, he was so friendly and welcoming and we had really cool talks about Hong Kong. He is a great host and I recommend you booking his place!

Eddie is a top bloke and fantastic to deal with. Great, clear communication with awesome handy hits for living and eating locally, plus very flexible with check in and out arrangements. So easy to find the apartment, which is a great location with tons of good stuff just out the door. The room was great - opening window, storage, international-fit adapter plugs, comfy mattress with soft bedding and towels. Nice living and kitchen space and big bathroom by HK standards. Fitted bathroom and kitchen water filters were awesome. Saves buying bottled water all the time. Overall Eddie is a great host who has thought of everything to make your stay easy and fun. Would certainly return.

Staying at Eddie's place was easy, comfortable and super convenient! We needed to book a couple nights last minute as our plans changed and Eddie was super accommodating and hospitable. He was fast and thorough with communication and helped provide some great recommendations. The apartment is more spacious in the living area than many in HK, and the neighborhood is great! Less than a block to the Chai Won market, 1.5 blocks to the subway and lots of great restaurants and nightlife nearby. The rooftop is also a treat! We enjoyed our breakfast out there one morning with a table and chairs Eddie provided. Thanks for a great stay!!

Eddie is great, and the apartment is in a great location. It's located almost opposite the metro, the room is small but definately fine for 2 people for 48 hours. The common space is comfortable and the view from the roof is unbelievable.
