Getting around

Once here many people often leave their cars and walk as everything is close at hand. Southsea is ideal for cycling as it is very flat. (Cycles can be easily hired.) There are three stations here and of course the ferry port which serves France and The Isle of Wight. The hovercraft (one of the only ones still operating) leaves from the beach near Clarence Pier and will deposit you in Ryde.

Interaction with guest

You will be met at the property and shown around, parking permits explained, keys handed over and any questions answered.

“Excellent again”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2017

We returned to 40 The Retreat, having stayed there last April. The house is very comfortable and brilliantly located to explore different aspects of Portsmouth's heritage. The Historic Dockyard is 1.3 miles away and, with an all attractions ticket, can provide several days of activity for all ages. The Isle of Wight is 10 minutes away by Hovercraft - look out for good deals. The beach, Southsea Common and the fun fair are all a short walk away on those sunny days. All round a great location for a multi generation family holiday.

“Excellent Facilities and friendly and helpful owners”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2013

We recently had a weekend away with four couples and two young children and found 40 Retreat to be the perfect venue. The house was in very good condition with the open kitchen and dining area great for entertaining. The house is in a great location for the Southsea high street with heaps of shops if you want that sort of thing. Steve was fantastic and very patient with the constant questions prior to the weekend and pointed everything out when we arrived. Overall a fantastic weekend away. Thanks

“Beautiful house, great hospitality from owners”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2013

Great location, close to the Kings Theatre were we had our annual Empower Conference. Close to the seafront and great shops on Palmerston Road. Steve and Malisa let our guests have the run of their beautiful house and made them feel at home.

“The best rented house I've ever stayed in in the UK”

Reviewed 17 Mar 2013

What a lovely house! It was spacious, comfortable and felt like home. It feels like it's lived in and has charm, character and everything you could possibly want with that extra homelike feeling because of the many wonderful ornaments, books, artwork and tasteful decoration. My teenage children loved it too as there are TVs in almost every room and CDs and DVDs for all tastes. The owners were extremely welcoming, helpful and friendly. There are restaurants, shops, bars and take aways just round the corner but it's very quiet and peaceful. Couldn't have asked for anything better!
