The apartment was well appointed in a great position with lovely views over Portsmouth Harbour. Sally couldn't be more helpful, and we especially appreciated the large bowl of fruit left in the apartment for us. We will cetainly be visiting again, for longer next time.

The 4 bed property is absolutely superb and we have had a week which was perfect. The owner supplied welcome provisions and we loved the house from day one. Beautifully presented and it surpassed all our expectations.. The first floor lounge overlooking boatmoorings is a wonderful feature and the 2 large bedrooms with en suites are excellent. Rear patio and private space are perfect for outdoor dining and drinks anytime. The nearby boardwalk with restaurants and bars is a very popular meeting place and gives excellent choice while overlooking the marina. All in all we had a brilliant time and strongly recommend this property as a wonderful base in Port Solent. The owners take great pride in this beautiful property and you will not be disappointed. Will definitely book it again sometime.
