This village home is a world of its own, complete with a 10,000sqft flowering garden, which includes an organic vegetable patch.

Situated between Hebe Haven Marina and Sai Kung Public Pier, there are plenty of dining options in the area—but we recommend stocking up on supplies, making use of the fully equipped kitchen and BBQ facilities and enjoying a feast or two on the long dining table out on the shady, leafy terrace.
