We used to live in Island Resort and it's fantastic. It is in Siu Sai Wan, just right after Chai Wan. The security and facilities are excellent, with resort style living - huge pool (indoor & outdoor), gym, club house, all the works. There's a hiking trail just behind it that can lead you to Shek O and Big Wave Bay which is great during summer, and most of the flats have seaview. The supermarket is located within the building (just get off the carpark and walk thru) and a reliable (express) bus service to Central (via Wan Chai & Admiralty) that takes 20-30 minutes. Taxi from Central costs $80. A lot of restaurants there too if you don't feel like cooking, though admittedly it's geared towards the locals. We lived in Tai Hang (got too expensive), Kennedy Town (too noisy) and looked at Heng Fa Chuen (rooms too small, some flats old and dark) so Island Resort definitely won hands down.
