Hong Kong is unique in that whatever kind of lifestyle you want – be it frenetic city living or laid-back island life – the options are there for you. If you’ve had it with the former, and want to try the latter, we’re here to help. This month, we’ve picked five great options to help you make a permanent island getaway!
South Lantau Road, Cheung Sha Ha Tsuen, South Lantau
- $35,000 per month
- 1,400 sqft
- 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, balcony, terrace, rooftop, sea view, and mountain view
This place is a bit of a steal at 33k – it’s massive, has amazing views, loads of space, and was recently refurbished. Best of all, you’re only a stroll away from Pui O beach. Result.
Luk Chau Tsuen, 5B Luk Chau Tsuen Sok Kwu Wan, Lamma Island
- $35,000 per month
- 2,300 sqft
- 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, high ceiling dining room opens to big terrace, roof terrace, direct access to the ocean in the front and mountains in the back, and helpers quarters with bathroom
Tastefully decorated, in spotless condition, amazing location with face-full’s of beautiful, lovely nature everywhere you turn. Well played Lamma.
Discovery Bay Road, Discovery Bay
- $40,000 per month
- 1,314 sqft
- 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, balcony, sea view
Blessed with the largest oceanfront dining venue in Hong Kong, Discovery Bay is island living without having to totally compromise on the things you loved about life on Hong Kong island. With 20 solid restaurants all set alongside the oceanfront, a 27-hole golf course, and a ton of things to do with kids, including Hong Kong Disneyland (just 2km away), it’s pretty ideal for working families.
Paloma Bay, Peng Chau
- $17,800 per month
- 646 sqft
- 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, roof terrace, sea view
Paloma Bay is nestled in the small, but peaceful, island of Peng Chau. Only a six-minute walk from the Peng Chau ferry pier, a 10-minute ferry ride from Discovery Bay, and 30 minutes from the Central, Paloma Bay is a dream location for those looking for a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here, you will be pampered by the rhythmic sea waves, expansive sea view, and the beauty of dusk to dawn (okay the last part’s a bit Hallmarky, but you get the idea).
8 Pak Lai Road, Park Island, Ma Wan
- $55,000 per month
- 1,510 sqft
- 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, big terrace, private roof, sea view
Park Island is kind of like Discovery Bay’s spiritual relative – it has a similar kind of vibe, but is definitely the quieter of the two, with less restaurants and things going on in general. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, however, as there is a pretty close-knit community here and some excellent facilities.
