Located on a peninsula midway between Repulse Bay and Stanley, Chung Hom Kok is a quiet, predominantly low-rise area. Accommodation here consists of townhouses and luxury low-rises, and commands higher rentals than many areas of the South Side. Many of the villas here have pools and private yards.
There is a small local supermarket, dry-cleaner's and a doctors' surgery, although most residents travel to Stanley for shopping, about five to ten minutes' drive away. The area is well served by public transport with routes to Central and elsewhere. Both campuses of the Hong Kong International School are nearby.
