“Very convenient location for Portsmouth and Southsea”
Booked for four weeks while we had building work carried out on our own house. The apartment was conveniently located, within easy walking distance of the centres of Portsmouth and Southsea, with the bonus of an off-road parking space alongside. We were greeted on arrival and shown around the apartment which was an ideal size for the two of us. Although opening directly onto Castle Road, we were never disturbed by unacceptable noise. During our stay, we took advantage of the 12 month validity of the All Attraction tickets for Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and the ease with which we were able to walk to the ferry terminal for a day trip to the Isle of Wight.
“comfortable, well situated, well equiped accomadation.”
More than we expected, Susan was there to meet us and show us how everything worked, well equipped kitchen with welcome pack. First rate and will definitely stay there again.
“Perfect for meie”
I arrived later than expected but the owner happily met me and showed me around. Location is SUPERB. There is a co-op right across the road and plenty of shops with in a short drive/walk. Restaurants and pubs in walking distance. Just a perfect location. The apartment had everything it listed ie: washing machine, internet that worked, tv etc.. I was travelling alone and found the size perfect for me but I wouldn't say there is room for 4 adults together unless you know each other VERY well. If I had to say downsides it would be 1. The toilet. It has a funny shaped exit so tends to block easily. but I'm sure if I had called the owner he would have happily sorted it. I chose to fix it myself. 2. A second set of linen in the bedroom would have been helpful when leaving so I could have remade the bed. But again that's just quibbles as opposed to major problems. ABSOLUTELY LOVED my stay and will happily re-book again.
“Brilliant Holiday Home - a home away from home!”
What a wonderful time we had. Susan, the owner is fantastic. She text me during the week before our stay, met us at the flat on our arrival to welcome us and show us around. During our stay, we text Susan to inform her (not complain), that the built in DVD player in the TV didn't work, and that the springs had gone on one side of the mattress. However, Susan's husband appeared later that day with a brand new mattress and DVD player! We were totally overwhelmed!!! The flat has everything in it that you would want for a holiday home. The Co-op is directly opposite the flat, and there's a common at the end of the road to walk the dog. Brilliant value for money - we would definitely stay there again if we were in the area!
“Great place to stay”
My husband and I stayed in Sue's apartment with our 2 young children. Even before we got there Sue had been really helpful via email and phone. The apartment was just what we needed. It had all of the facilities to be a home from home and is in a central location so lots of places were in easy walking distance including just getting a bit of shopping. There was plenty of storage space which was needed with the kids. The area can be a little bit noisy being central but didn't really bother us. Having a dedicated parking space was also great as with lots of places we could walk to we didn't use the car that much. I would definitely book again if visiting Portsmouth. Thank you Sue.
“Wonderful, last minute, surprise.”
We actually booked Sue's apartment the night before we were due to stay. We were very happy with the apartment and Sue. She had everything you could possibly want or need, it was fully equipped. I'm a bit sorry that we couldn't spend another night there. The supermarket is right across the road (about 20 paces). We spent a whole day down at the dockyards which the kids thoroughly enjoyed. Our only little drama was getting our wash dried. We were able to sort that out pretty quickly with the electric heater (not a problem). If ever we were to come to Portsmouth again we'd definitely stay at Sue's place. Thanks so much, Sue.
“NICE FLAT BUT A BIT TOO NOISY”
Nice flat, warm and cosy but the front door opened directly on to a busy street with comings and goings most of the night. On the Saturday night the occupant of the flat above decided to have a party which went on until 4 am. Very disappointing but the owner refunded us one nights accommodation for which we thank her. The sofa bed needs a bit of WD40 on it as my friend trapped her finger in the framework which hurt her quite badly. A few repairs need doing - ie extractor fan in bathroom,fan heater not working in bathroom lampshade in living room, springs broken in mattress. We were so looking forward to our holiday but it was quite disappointing.
Owner's reply: In the 12 years of owning the apartment I have never had a problem with noise from other apartments, this was a one off incident and the guests and they were refunded their money. As with any summer seaside resort it does get quite busy on Fri and Sat nights but this is due to the central location of the apartment. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the sofabed, the fact she trapped her finger is due to operator error nothing else. There is not a fan heater in the bathroom so I am not sure what this comment refers to, the mattress in the bedroom is only 1 year old and a high quality Hypnos with no springs broken. When checking in the holiday makers were from the onset quite difficult verging on the rude. Please read other comments on the apartment.
“perfect for big family”
This is what I have been loking for.... I had 10 people coming to my wedding from abroad. It was an extended family consisting of grandparents, parents, grandchildren, teenagers. I wanted them to live close by and this was just ideal. The accomodation is lovely, tastefully furnished, lovely kitchens and bathrooms. COOP is jsut across the road- perfect for small shoppinng for breakfast. Appr 10 minutes walk to the seaside. Excellent. would recormmend to anybody. Will use you again in the future.
“Beautifully furnished apartment and close to all amenities”
400 yds from Southsea Common. Quiet area, close to a chip shop and pub ! Smart and modern kitchen. Excellent bathroom and bedroom. Comfotable double sofa. T.V. etc. Would recommend to anyone, having stayed at many, many different accommodations in Southsea and Portsmouth.
“Great value in Southsea”
We were visiting family in the area and needed a nearby place to stay. This apartment is centrally located in Southsea and is in walking distance of nearly everything. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed to be self sufficient. It even came with a free parking spot! There was a grocery store across the road and eating places nearby. When we come to Southsea again we will definitely try to book here again. My only slight negative was that the bed was very soft. It was very good value for the cost.
