    Description

    Hello and thank you for be interested in reading our profile!! We are a family of five with 4 dogs and a cat living in Kowloon City, a neighborhood near the old airport of Hong Kong.

    Leave behind the crowd and see yourself in a quiet part of this city with unique urban landscape, great food and culture just around the corners. We appreciate help with looking after the dogs, cat, and cleaning the house occasionally.

    Hope you will enjoy the moments together and be grateful of the fact that we have the chance to meet at this certain point in life :)

    And our family... my daddy Kent, mommy Win, my wife Carina, my sister Miu and I am Franco :)

    The dogs love our guests who come to stay! Help us bring them out for a couple walks once in the morning and once in the late afternoon. House cleaning is also much appreciated :) We are planning to paint the walls in the coming months so we surely will need some help on that too !

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Situated near the old Kai Tak airport, planes used to fly just above Kowloon City. You will find old buildings which are only 5 to 6 floors high which are quite different from the rest of urban Hong Kong. But the redevelopment are rapidly changing this area and high-rise buildings are sprouting up everywhere.
