Holiday Rental House
Located in beautiful Southsea just a ten minute walk from the sea, this sympathetically modernised victorian house still offers original features such as fireplaces, stained glass, coving and ceiling detail. The house is laid out over three floors with five bedrooms each with a double bed and the flexibility of including a cot or camp bed where needed. With an open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area leading onto the garden through slide away glass doors this house offers holiday guests a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The ability to walk to the beaches, museums, parks and shops means a stress-free holiday....Located in beautiful Southsea just a ten minute walk from the sea, this sympathetically modernised victorian house still offers original features such as fireplaces, stained glass, coving and ceiling detail.

It was a comfortable friendly accommodation, which enabled us to relax and have a family break. Whilst we were there we visited the excellent D-Day Exhibition, Historic Dockyard and the Spice Island. Many thanks to the owner.

About the neighbourhood
Portsmouth and Southsea offers a plethora of interesting places to visit including The Historic Dockyard with the new Mary Rose Museum, The Victory and The Warrior, Explosion Museum and trips boat trips around the harbour. Gun Wharf Quays has outlets for the bargain hunter, restaurants and there is always a trip up Spinnaker Tower to take in the view from above. If you prefer to check out the local independent cafes and restaurants there are plenty. The beach is shingle but beautiful with great walks along the front and the pier has now re-opened. In the summer there are a number of events on the common. There is a butterfly museum, skate park, rose garden, Sealife Centre and many other attractions.
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.
