For convenience we took a taxi from the Fratton train station even tough it is very close by as described in the directions. The owners lives near by and showed up with the keys within a minute when we arrived and showed us around. Having 4 bedroms was a big plus as we have three kids that can be hard to get to sleep in the same room. Everything worked fine as far as we can tell. The shower room and bathroom seem to have been built recently. We cooked ourselves but also ordered Chinese takeaway food twice (fast & free delivery) from one of the many providers down in Albert Road.
The weather was really great due to a heat wave during our holiday, so we mostly stayed at the beach and strolled along the seafront and visiting museums and the Southsea castle. We also took the bus (route 15) to the Historic Dockyard and Gunwharf Quays (huge shopping center at the base of the Spinnacker Tower). There's definetively much to see for the historically interested here. more
