"Excellent Base for exploring Portsmouth & Southsea"
We booked this two bedroom flat so we could catch up with family returning to the area from around the world. Situated 20 minutes walk from Gunwharf and with a car parking space included, you are bang across the road from a pub, a co-op and seconds away from a variety of restaurants and fast food outlets
Two spacious double bedrooms and a large kitchen plus a living area with a sofa bed.
Our little grandson visited us all the way from Australia and a cot and high chair was provided with no fuss.so he could eat and have an afternoon snooze.
As it is ground floor, the only problem we encountered was ventilation as the windows opened onto the street, a couple of fans for the two week English summer might be a welcome addition.
TV WIFI, two fridges and freezers (plenty of room for drinks and food) plus toiletries and complimentary coffee and tea were little touches that made us feel welcome

"A great plce to stay to visit Portsmouths many atractions"
We were very impressed with Susan's help on the day of our arrival, we arrived well before the time we stated and were unable to find anywhere to leave our luggage due to security requirements of a visit by The Queen that day.
On contacting Susan by phone she kindly came to our rescue by coming & collecting said luggage and delivering it to the flat, giving us the key & confirming a time to meet us and show us the flat.
As we did not have transport the flat is well located and we were able to walk to most of the places of interest without difficulty, I should say my wife and I are both reasonably fit retirees
Susan met us at the agreed time and was most helpful, the flat was lovely and clean and well presented, although the TV did not operate Susan arrange for a technician to fix it which was done quickly and efficiently. There are also a good number of supermarkets in the vicinity also good pubs & places to eat
Thank You Susan we really enjoyed our stay
All in all a great place to stay

"Lovely stay in a great place in a wonderful location"
Stayed for 2 months, really felt like home. Central for Southsea, the seafront and Portsmouth. Great facilities, lovely lady Susan there to welcome us and nothing too much trouble. Would highly recommend this holiday home to anyone travelling to Portsmouth/Southsea.

"If I was going to Portsmouth again I would definitely stay there again."
Lovely place, excellent location, no problems whatsoever. Very happy and would stay there again. Pub over the road is fantastic. Parking round the back and there's a pass from the library for additional cars. Co -op over the road. Historic dockyard has a see it all ticker which lasts for a year so can split it up. Faringdon marshes is worth a morning walk. The aquarium was good. The place itself really is a good spot to stay. :)
