Although a long-time Mid-Levels resident, I am shortly going to take ownership of a mid-size dog and this has caused me to re-examine where I live, mainly because he's used to being taken on good walks (and if runs off his leash and a dip in the ocean are a possibility, he'd be in seventh heaven).
I've heard that Park Island is a good choice as it's very dog friendly and the island offers many walks and even a small ungazetted beach around the back. It also looks like you can get more bang for your buck space-wise, which is going to be a real boon to me when my American-sized American husband arrives to stay in a couple of months. He's also looking to teach English while here and would prefer to earn an income from private classes from home, but that will really depend on where we end up living as it will be a 'come to me' type arrangement.
I'm a little concerned about being that far from work (my office is in Central) and about the seeming isolation of the complex (ferries to Central, buses to Tsing Yi MTR, taxis aren't even allowed in).
Does anyone have any experience of living on Park Island, know of anyone who does, or have any thoughts on the whole thing? I also thought of DiscoBay but it appears to be pretty similar and apartments seem to be less value for money.
Thanks guys :)
