“Lovely furnished apartment with stunning seaview!”

The ground floor apartment is located opposite the seafront with stunning views of the sea and Isle of Wight (on a clear day). It was a pleasure to just sit indoors watching the ships sail by or going for a stroll along the seafront to Canoe Lake to feed the swans. Likewise, the flat is easily accessible to all major attractions with bus stops just around the corner.

The spacious, spotlessly clean flat is amazing and has everything; Fully equipped kitchen, clean bed linen and towels, and all home comforts - including a Christmas tree if needed. The landlord welcomed us on arrival and gave us an overview of the amenities/ facilities and kindly provided basic groceries, chocolates and flowers! Needless to say, my two daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are eagerly planning our next visit.

100% recommendation!!!

My wife and I stayed for 2 weeks in August and luckily had nice weather except for a couple of days when the tail end of the hurricane hit Southsea.
The apartment is lovely and spacious and with high ceilings and a well equipped kitchen. A nice bathroom with a big walk in shower was also great. The bedroom has lots of wardrobe and drawer space which is often lacking in holiday rentals.
We enjoyed sitting at the bay window watching all the shipping pass by whilst having lunch or evening meal (inc. several cruise ships from Southampton).
Only a 15 minutes pleasant walk along the promenade to the town centre, with shops and good restaurants. We particularly liked Sopranos (Italian) and Agora (Greek).
Perhaps only one little niggle.. the windows were quite difficult to open and close, I even had to stand on a chair to get to the one in the bedroom. On a sunny day it was essential as the rooms became very warm.
If we ever visit Southsea again this apartment would definitely be top of my list.

Im a bit nervous booking something on the internet but i didnt need to be, this flat is lovely. The location is perfect, it is within walking distance of all the great places (eg Southsea Castle, Gunwalf Quays, Historical Dockyard) also the bus stop is only a couple of minutes walk away. All the added extas like towels, cleaning products, tea, coffee etc were a big help we didnt need to pack as much. Parking by the flat was never a problem and the permits are a good price, although parking in Southsea is very expensive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are thinking of booking it again next year. Thankyou to Paul and Julie.

Were met by Paul and shown around at time arranged. Flowers and a bottle of wine to enjoy. Large spacey rooms fitted with all needs. Lovely views from the front windows. It was easy to access all the areas we wanted to visit.

Recently returned from a 2 week stay in this apartment, we love it. We have been before and hope to return in 2014.
Perfect location, easy access to buses, trains and ferries to the Isle of Wight. Great walks along the sea front and across the common.
Lots of lovely restuarants and cafes in Southsea town centre, try Sopranas Italian or The Slug and Lettuce.
Dockyard well worth a visit.
Lovely clean and bright apartment, all facilities.
Welcoming hosts, thanks Paul and Julie - see you next year all being well.

All bookings and negotiations conducted online, so you sometimes have doubts, However we have nothing but praise about this apartment. Paul made the greeting and handover so easy. Clean, tidy and a good position.Would recommend this apartment over any hotel room. From a money point of view it is just as cost effective. With more space and freedom.Thanks Paul, will stay the next time we come over........

All really good indeed. Before booking, you read the 'reviews' and you wonder how true it can be........well, this one is. It's a perfect location, great facilities and also really friendly and accomodating owners. Paul and Julie answered all e-mails and helped us greatly - we stayed with our 13 month old baby !

We stayed for a short break of three nights and everything ran smoothly. We've been to Portsmouth quite a few times pre-baby, so we knew our way around. However, the flat location is great for a Southsea 'newbie' - all sites within walking distance.

Flat is spacious and has everything you need. The visitors book is packed with page after page of positive comments. Most holiday lets you don't want to stay in all day - with this one, you can easily and comfortably.
