These two exclusive suburbs are located on the south side of Hong Kong island, just after the Aberdeen Tunnel.
These areas, which are geographically next to each other, comprise mainly low rise apartments and houses.
These prestigious districts are favoured by many owner occupiers, although there are rental units available. Shouson Hill is situated inland, with narrow windy roads, and most buildings offer peaceful green views and surroundings. There is a small Park’n’shop supermarket www.parknshop.com in Shouson Hill itself, as well as a few garden nurseries. Residents may also use the nearby Parkview shopping centre or else head down towards Repulse Bay or Stanley for more comprehensive shopping.
There are mainly larger, three/five bedroom units in Shouson Hill, so therefore it is more suitable for families, rather than singles or couples. Many of the units also have outside space, whether it be private balcony or communal garden. There are some contained developments of low rise apartments or townhouses, some of which have communal facilities such as play areas, gardens, gyms or swimming pools.
Deep Water Bay primarily consists of houses, although there are some low and high rise apartments available. Many of the units offer stunning ocean views, and some within walking distance to Deep Water Bay beach, where there are public barbecue pits, as well as a couple of eateries. The Hong Kong Golf Club is also located adjacent to the beach and entry is strictly by membership only.
An ESF school, South Island School is located on Nam Fung Road and is one of 3 secondary schools belonging to the ESF on the island. A selection of schools and kindergartens are available within the surrounding areas too. There are many kindergartens such are PIPS at Parkview or the Woodland Pre-Schools group which has many locations. For older children, there is also the Hong Kong International School in Repulse Bay and Tai Tam. Otherwise Deep Water Bay and Shouson Hill are both on the school bus route for the French International School.
Shouson Hill is close to Ocean Park, our home-grown theme park, a very popular destination for tourists, locals and young families alike.
Minibuses 5 & 6 begin at Ocean Park and go through Shouson Hill. Transportation is limited to buses and minibuses, but most residents will own private cars. With the public transport system in HK being so efficient, it’s fairly easy to traverse from Central to Shouson Hill/Deep Water Bay within 20 minutes.
