OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
As this house is unique and requires special attention and specific rules, here are some FAQ regarding living on a boat.
Q: What is your minimum night's stay?
A: 2 night is our minimum, however 3 nights or above is highly recommended in order to have a complete experience
Q: Can the guest walk to the houseboat directly from the shore?
A: No, the houseboat is moored in the middle of the harbour, you need to take sampan (water taxi) to get in and out of the harbour. Having said that, it is exactly one of the key experiences you have during the stay.
Q: What are the operating times of the sampan (water taxi) and how much is it?
A: Sampan (water taxi) runs from 7am to 12am and cost $15-20 HKD per trip. You can simply dial the numbers in the info pack to arrange the pick up, so you need a sim card for making local call. However, if you plan on staying out late, this accommodation may not be suitable for you, as there is no guarantee a sampan is available for you to return back to the boat.
Q: Is there sufficient water and power?
A: Yes, we have 24 hours water and power from the shore. Water is drinkable after boiling. Please kindly turn off the electronic applicants after use and turn off all the lights and AC before you leave to avoid waste and over consumption.
Q: Is there any Wifi ?
A: Yes we have wifi on the houseboat. However, please understand that the network may not be as stable as your home, as we are using 4G sim card instead cable.
A: The boat has 2 fully equipped bathrooms with hot water (one is with Jacuzzi). There are two 100% functional toilets, but please don't flush toilet paper, sanitary tissues, debris down the toilet. Trash bins are provided.
Q: Air Conditioning?
A: Our boat is equipped with AC. Even when it is summer, you can be assured that you will be staying in a nice comfortable environment!
Q: What to expect on the houseboat?
A: It's a houseboat, it is a unique authentic and relaxing experience. There may be noises and smells that you'd expect from a boat or the sea. It is the fishing village culture. Most of the time, it is very quiet.
Q: Wave action?
A: The houseboat has a berth which dilutes the waves. There is still a reasonable amount of wave action due to other boats passing by so you'll feel a slight rock from time-to-time. This is just part of the experience of staying on a boat. Usually it does not create an inconvenience.
Q: Any room service?
A: There are telephone numbers in the info pack that you can Call or Message for delivery of food, beer or any necessities from the shore anytime at a service charge. However, please always tidy and clean up the houseboat during your stay, especially in the kitchen. We would expect you to treat it like your home.
