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.
