Ap Lei Chau, a small island connected by a bridge to the south of Hong Kong, is a perfect fusion of urban development and links to the city’s fishing past. With the opening of the MTR Island South Line (East) making Ap Lei Chau more accessible to the rest of Hong Kong, the face of Ap Lei Chau is rapidly changing.
The name Ap Lei Chau is derived from its long and narrow shape that looks like the tongue of a duck. Now a largely residential island, it still retains some of Hong Kong’s traditional allure with the busy harbour that is the base for fishing vessels and sampans, while old temples and shipyards still dot the island’s shoreline.
1. The Vibe:
Ap Lei Chau has a mix of Modern and Village Rustic Feel and has plenty of attractions for those who choose to call the area home. The Ap Lei Chau Waterfront Promenade is the hub so whether you enjoy a walk on the trail, let the kids unwind at the multiple playgrounds, do some shopping in the various malls or watch the sampans and fishing boats come and go, there is something for everyone.
Ap Lei Chau is full of reasonably priced local eats. Apart from traditional “Cha Chaan Tangs”, you have a multitude of international cuisines and seafood restaurants to choose from.
3. The Housing Factor:
This area consists of mainly high-rise developments. There are a few new luxury developments with club facilities being built in the area such as Larvotto and Marinella, as well as the more established sprawling South Horizon development and Sham Wan Towers. Many of these units have good sea views to the southeast, or west towards the Lamma Channel
4. The Convenience Factor:
The MTR South Island Line opened in 2016 and connects Ap Lei Chau with Central in 11 minutes thus completely transforming the convenience factor of this area.
The station of Lei Tung connects passengers from Ap Lei Chau Main Street to the Main Plaza with easy access to all areas including the Promenade.

“Home is not a place, it’s a feeling.” Alex Sheldon, The Home Stylist
The Home Stylist (THS)
tell this to every one of their clients, to help them understand how important
their unique personality is in styling their home. Home is not just a place,
with well-lit rooms and nicely arranged furniture. Home is a feeling that you
get from all these elements put together in just the right way, with just the
right amount of personal touch.
But, how do we create
that ‘feeling’ of home when the place in question doesn’t yet have an owner to
give it personality? This is where home staging comes in, and it is much more
than just nicely arranged furniture.
In Hong Kong’s current
challenging and competitive residential sales and leasing market, professional
property staging has become an essential ingredient in achieving success.
So what is Home Staging?
Home staging is the process of preparing a property for
sale or lease with select pieces of furniture and decor. The goal of staging an
otherwise empty space in this way is to help potential buyers or renters easily
imagine themselves living there. By creating a feeling of ‘home’ with clever
styling details, property stagers are able to sell homes for more with less
time on the market.
Staged Homes Proven to Rent and Sell Quicker by up to 87%
“It is quite surprising how few people really can visualize an empty space transitioned to their own place! Done properly, home-staging a property gives landlords at least a 60% better chance of having clients walk in the door and say – ‘this is the one for me’.” According to the US National Association of Realtors, for every $100 invested in staging, the potential return is $400. “A staged home will sell for 17% more on average than a non-staged home, and 95% of staged homes sell in 11 days or less. That is statistically 87% faster than non-staged homes.”
“Properties need to present beautifully in print, online and in-person in order to achieve the best price in the shortest possible time,” says Alex. After 2 decades in the home styling and real estate realms, this is something that the THS team has seen time and time again.
“It’s important to create a home, not a showroom which is why a
stylist’s eye is so crucial. Every person viewing the property needs to be able
to visualize living there ”
Offering Diverse Furnishings to Highlight Every Type of Space
THS Property Staging
team have just finished staging a 2300sqft 4Bed property in Midlevels in
October 2019 on the market for HKD58 million.
For this high-end family home, THS chose furniture and decor from their
preferred suppliers, including Hong Kong homeware stores Bo Concept, Tequila
Kola and Australian lamp designers Bragg & Co, plus a number of their own
accessories and art.
Of course, one style cannot appeal to everyone which is why THS also offers digital lookbooks of room renderings to compliment their staging services. This way they can stage one impeccable room and then take clients on a virtual tour of the rest of the property and show other design concepts.
Complete Turnkey Solutions at Every Budget
As a small agency, specializing in personal and tailored services, The Home Stylist finds a unique solution for each and every client depending on their property, their target market and their budget. As a team of project managers with a flair for design, they are not afraid to think outside the box in their quest to create that special feeling of home.
With this Mid-Levels
apartment, it is clear that staging made a huge impact. The home, untouched by
the owners for more than 40 years, had over 20 viewings in the first few
Qi Homes have successfully partnered with THS on several projects successfully in order to help Rent and Sale apartments throughout Hong Kong. Staging is proven effective in selling the property 50% faster compared to unstaged flats. Furnishing flats with quality finishing also give the property “perceived value” explains Anthony Hindmarsh, Director of Qi Homes meaning buyers or renters are less likely to negotiate as hard. We highly recommend THS and their team of expert Interior Designers to produce the most effective results in any client’s budget.
