Fantastic central location for Southsea Common, Southsea shopping precinct and Old Portsmouth. Please be advised that the staircase is steep and not suitable for anyone with limited mobility.

Please do not be put off by the bad review posted a couple of years ago... you will find many more recent complementary reviews on other websites if you choose to look.... After an exciting day exploring the sights of Portsmouth and Southsea come home to this cosy terrace cottage in this friendly residential area. Full internet access and smart TV are provided for your entertainment should you wish to have a quiet night in. The small nature of the property means that there is only one double and a single seater sofa in the snug lounge area as seen in the photos...plus a couple of poofs and small wooden armchair for extra seating or putting your feet up. Alternatively there is a wide selection of pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance. (from 2 - 10 minutes walk). It has a feature steep wooden spiral staircase leading up to the 2 double bedrooms and higher still into the dual aspect attic space where a single bed is located. (The option for another single bed to be made up here is possible on request.). The original building has been extended on the ground floor to the rear where the neat bathroom and well appointed kitchen are located. Both bathroom and kitchen posses sky lights to give that extra feeling of light. The small enclosed courtyard at the rear houses the small table top freezer,washing machine and drying area. All bed linen and towels are provided. Parking Permits( KD Zone) will be provided for the duration of your stay and once parked you will be able to explore the delights of the area on foot and forget about your car until you leave. Please be advised that smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property - even the small drying area with the washing machine since it is enclosed and the smoke does not blow away freely. Also this is a quiet residential area and the property is mid terrace so respect must be given to neighbouring residents by keeping loud noise to a minimum after 10pm.More

I have added a note to the property details to advise potential guest about the steepness of the staircase following the comments. I am disappointed that the guests did not contact me about the toilet flush during their residence or leave a note to highlight...More
