6 Pet-Friendly Apartments In Hong Kong You Absolutely Have To Know About

Hong Kong May 18, 2022

Finding a pet-friendly apartment in densely populated Hong Kong is not impossible. You just need to know where to look and we’re going to help you with that.

As a pet owner in Hong Kong looking for an apartment to rent, you might be feeling daunted by the sheer number of rental options that would not accommodate fur babies. Many a time, you might’ve found your dream apartment only to realise that the landlord has a ‘strictly no pet’ policy as part of the rental arrangement. Bummer, right?

To save you a great deal of time and effort for your fur, scale or feather-friendly dream abode, here is a list of pet-friendly apartments in Hong Kong for short and long term rentals.

3-bedroom apartment in Hmlet 95 Hill Road

1. Hmlet 95 Hill Road

If you are renting solo and are looking for a convenient location close to the MTR as well as to eateries, Hmlet 95 Hill Road is a great option. It's located in the Shek Tong Tsui - HKU area and is a stone’s throw away from lots of trendy food places, including pet-friendly options.

Getting to work and around Hong Kong is convenient as the HKU Station is only a five minute walk away — think about all the extra shut eye in the morning!

But that’s not all, rooms here are also affordable. A Regular room at Hmlet 95 Hill Road starts from just HK$12,200 per month.

3-bedroom apartment in Hmlet Caine Building

2. Hmlet Caine Building

Prefer a quieter yet convenient location? Hmlet Caine Building is located at Caine Road near Central Station and has all the amenities you'd dream of — a park (great for pups), supermarket, gym and plethora of eateries.

To get to Central, you can take a leisurely 20 minute stroll via the Mid-Level escalators. If you prefer public transportation, you can always count on the many buses and minibuses around to get about.

Bonus: If you need to have a feel for the place with your pet before signing a long term lease, you’re in luck! Hmlet offers short term leases that start from as short as three months. A regular room at Hmlet Caine Building starts from an affordable HK$11,900 per month.

3. Village Houses

If you have a family or crave more space for yourself, village houses that are semi-detached or detached houses would definitely catch your fancy. They are typically located in rural or suburban parts of Hong Kong and provide a more tranquil, laid-back form of country-style living. Oftentimes, these places do not have security guards to patrol the areas and thus are more accommodating to tenants with pets.

If you decide to rent a village house, do check for any possible illegal structures on your property to avoid getting into hot soup with the law. Another thing to note, be prepared that more buildings or structures could be constructed in the surrounding area, causing the ambience of that particular village to change over time.  

Monthly rent here depends on location and how large the village house is. A quick check online showed that you could rent a 2-bedroom, 2 toilet and 1 parking lot village house that is 700 square feet, for an affordable HK$18,000 per month.

4. The Nate

Relish the experiences of living in a fully-furnished studio apartment ranging from 125 to 260 square feet at The Nate. Apartments here come complete with private bathrooms, huge windows for a bright and airy feel, washers, dryers and other modern-day amenities — perfect for the modern pawrent.

Select your desired rental abode from an assortment of options, such as the Small Studio, Middle Studio as well as Studio With Balcony. To add, The Nate is conveniently located near Jordan MTR station, and is surrounded by many eateries and lifestyle amenities.

Monthly rent for the Smaller Studio that’s between 125 and 154 square feet starts from HK$15,000.

5. Apartment O

Another lavish apartment option offering short term rental is Causeway Bay’s Apartment O. Its intricate interior design will transport you and your furry friends back to 1930s Hong Kong or Shanghai.

Choose from 1, 2 or 3-bedrooms and enjoy an outdoor leisure area with BBQ facilities available for residents to relax after a hectic day. Savour the mixture of contemporary and classic Chinese art pieces and delight in the top quality services provided by the management staff.

Given how large their homes are, be prepared to pay a pretty penny to live here. Monthly rent for a 2-bedroom with ensuite and 1 study with balcony (1,500 square feet) at Apartment O starts from HK$90,000 for monthly lease and HK$85,000 for a one year lease.

6. S Residence

S Residence in Kennedy Town provides short term rental options and only requires a minimum one month lease. Their lodging includes 1 and 2-bedroom apartments (from 550 square feet) that are fully-furnished and pet-friendly (first two fur babies stay for free!).

This serviced apartment is situated two minutes away from the Kennedy Town MTR station, and is highly accessible to trams and buses that connect you to other parts of Hong Kong. All apartments come with housekeeping services and amenities to ensure that you and your pets are well taken care of — music to any pet owner's ears.
