1. Peaceful Solitude in South Lantau
The newly built Ham Tin Villas development in South Lantau consists of nine detached houses, which are available to rent for HK$75,000 per month.
Take your pick of homes of different sizes: one configuration takes up 1,554 sq ft, while another, which offers an additional family room, measures 1,706 sq ft.
The homes have private gardens that measure between 3,500 sq ft to 5,700 sq ft—an amount of outdoor space that’s almost never found in urban areas. Meanwhile, there are also private rooftops sized at approximately 350 sq ft, which are accessible from the master bedroom.
The area of South Lantau is home to some of Hong Kong’s most beautiful and quietest beaches—and living here will mean those are just a stone’s throw away. For water transport to Central, South Lantau is served by Mui Wo Ferry Pier. From there it takes around 35 minutes to get to Central in a fast ferry.
Listing price: HK$75,000 (approximately US$9,627) per month
