Hi, my husband and I are moving to Hong Kong at the end of summer. His office is at Leighton Road Causeway Bay and we are looking to find accomodation. I've only been to HK once and I'm not familiar with the area... It's just the 2 of us and we are prepared to stay at least for 2 years (but not limited to), we arn't crazy about hectic city life and we don't need to be near to the nightlife - we prefer heading out to the beaches/hills etc for recreation so we were thinking of staying somewhere around Kowloon Bay. (its really the only place in my HK suburb vocabulary so please accept my apologies).
He doesn't mind traveling 20-30 minutes to arrive at work. We were recommended Harbourview Horizon. Are there any other places of similar location/style and price? Near to food, supermarket, convenient, an entertainment center or mall? Budget is 14000HKD inclusive of electricity and broadband but of course we would love to spend even less than that. 1 or 2 bedroom will be good. Security is necessary and gym & pool would be preferred.
Are there any other recommendations for extended stay/ service apartments or furnished apartments? And areas I should be willing to consider?
