From the owner

The Number 1 rated place to stay in Southsea as rated by Tripadvisor reviews.

Location, Location Location: This Victorian building (Onslow Villa) is located in the very heart of Southsea in a residential conservation area which is just 300m from both Southsea Common and the shops, bars and restaurants of Palmerston and Osborne road. Albert road and King's theatre are only 500m away, while the isle of weight Hovercraft is only a 10 min walk away.

On the upper ground floor can be found the kitchen diner, living room, bathroom, laundry cupboard, side porch with entrance. The large Kitchen diner (14'7" x 20') is superb for socialising as is the equally large living room. Both kitchen diner and living room have large bay windows and high ceilings. The kitchen has an American style fridge/freezer with inbuilt wine cooler, an induction hob, built in dishwasher, microwave and a twin oven. There is also a good sized dining table, chairs and sofa.

The washing machine and tumble dryer are found in a laundry cupboard off the hallway. There is a family bathroom with shower bath, toilet and basin.

There are 3 bedrooms on the lower ground floor level. The large master bedroom (14'7 x 20') has a king size double bed, chest of draws and vanity table with mirror and stool. The master also has a high-quality en-suite shower with toilet and basin. A walk-in wardrobe is situated opposite the bedroom. The two smaller bedrooms (14' 6" x 7'6"' and 12' x 7'4") both have double beds and a chest of draws, one has a small walk in wardrobe. All bedrooms have flat screen televisions with built in freeview. Bedroom 2 has a TV with built-in DVD player.

The small courtyard garden to the side of the property is a great sun-trap in the afternoons usually from about 1.30pm onwards. Unlike most other holiday lets in Southsea, the maisonette has private parking to the rear of the property and can park upto 3 cars, which is a real bonus, as parking in Southsea can be a real problem, especially during the summer months.

We provide fresh bed linen, including one bath and hand towel for each guest.

This is a family run property and we strive to give the best possible service to our guests. This maisonette was once our home. Now we use it as our holiday home because of its great location, large living space and private parking.

2021 update, we have during 2020 had the villa given a fresh cost of paint all round amongst other bits and pieces to keep this lovely property in top condition.

******PLEASE NOTE: Bookings from families and couples preferred. Please no hen or stag parties, or mixed/same gender groups under 30 years old, you will be declined on arrival if you try it on!***********

We are happy for children under 5 years old to stay, but you need to be aware that we have no cot, high chair or stair gates and that there are steps to the entrances of the property.

CLEANING PLEASE NOTE: The property is professionally cleaned to a high standard, top to bottom in-between EVERY change over. All bed linen is changed, bathrooms and kitchen cleaned and fresh towels are put out. Also for guests staying more than a week, will have the property cleaned and all linen changed once a week.

We hope you will enjoy staying here as much as we do.
