Lovely bayside apartment in Discovery Bay Hong Kong

Our 1000 square feet, three-bedroom, two-bathroom, fully-furnished home is on the second floor of a small, attractive modern building which is part of the La Costa “village” very close to the centre of Discovery Bay with a grand view of the bay and mountains beyond.

La Costa is one of the 14 or so coherently designed “phases” or “villages” that make up the privately developed community (20,000 people) of Discovery Bay. It is the most convenient and attractive of these phases with lovely trees, gardens, and fountains. It is only a three-minute walk from the centre of Discovery Bay with its shopping plaza, D-Deck (international restaurants overlooking the beach and bay), Residents' Club (with restaurant, swimming pools, squash courts, tennis courts etc. for members), and a community piazza - a favourite afternoon/evening meeting place and location for markets and stalls on some weekends.

Discovery Bay is a well-designed neighborhood/township on the south side of Lantau Island, just 12 km by ferry from Central Hong Kong. It is home to well-off Chinese people and to expatriates from around the world who appreciate the secure community, the lack of private motor vehicles (electric golf cars only), the international schools and kindergartens, the leisure activities, 30-minute bus ride to the airport and 25-minute ferry ride to the CBD of Hong Kong, and the way this quiet but lively community contrasts with the crowds and hectic bustle of nearby Hong Kong Island.

Discovery Bay is a is a wonderful base for exploring one of the world's most vibrant and efficient cities. You will be amazed. Discovery Bay avoids the crush of 8 million people and gives you a luxurious 25-minute ferry ride to the heart of the city. It is great for walking, hiking, water sports, dining out, and hanging out in the piazza. And it is an attractive gateway to a brilliant city.
