Overview

About the property

Bright and spacious two bedroomed apartment with sea views and stunning sunsets.

Bright, spacious and spotlessly clean top floor apartment with sea views and stunning sunsets in a characterful Victorian building. Originally a townhouse, converted into five split level flats circa 1979.

The apartment is located in central Southsea on the seafront in a conservation area. It has views out to Southsea Common, the Solent, Isle of Wight and Spinnaker Tower. The accommodation is ideal for small families, couples, solo and business travellers.

The apartment is excellently located. It is minutes from Palmerston Road with its many eating places and shopping precinct (including a Waitrose supermarket) and a short walk from Old Portsmouth (15 minutes). Only slightly further away is Gunwharf Quays and the Spinnaker Tower, the Historic Dockyard and Central Portsmouth (20-25 minutes). We’re also minutes from the Isle of Wight Hoverport.

The apartment has large sash windows with wonderful views and stunning sunsets. The accommodation comprises of a large living room with dining area; large double bedroom with Super King size bed, plenty of cupboard space and en-suite wc; a twin room with two full size singles and views to the seafront; a completely new kitchen, fully equipped with everything you might need in a home away from home; and a new bathroom suite with an electric shower. We supply high quality bed linen and towels with our accommodation. The apartment is on the top third floor of the building, there is no lift.

A car is useful but not essential. For those with a car, parking permits are available for parking in the local area. For those without, there is a good local bus and train service. The closest train station is Portsmouth Harbour.

Southsea, Portsmouth is a perfect location for any type of holiday and at any time of year – short city breaks, surprise Valentine’s/ anniversary getaways, Easter holidays, educational half term breaks, summer holidays by the sea, the Great South Run, Christmas and January Sales shopping. There is something for everyone. It is an ideal location for a holiday in Britain no matter what the weather or the time of year.

As well as ideally located for visiting Portsmouth, the apartment is a perfect base for visiting the south coast and key locations further afield – central London is only 90 minutes away by train.

Why Mr & Mrs Crick chose Southsea

The apartment is located within a special, typically Victoria building, one of the few left in Southsea with many of its original features. It forms part of the Seafront Conservation Area. It is a residential building with only four other apartments. We're located in the most perfect spot to explore the whole of the city. We're on the doorstep of Southsea Common, minutes away from shops, restaurants, beach walks, Clarence Pier & Funfair and children's playground; and no more than half an hour walk to all of Portsmouth's attractions.

Great place to stay when visiting Portsmouth

  • 5 of 5

Spacious well-presented apartment, very clean and comfortable. Lovely tall ceilings and large windows, in front room, overlooking the common and harbour. Enjoyed relaxing and taking in the ever-changing view, of all the ships sailing in and out of Portsmouth. Southsea is a delight with parks for the children to play, lots of open space, gardens, Canoe lake, Blue Reef Aquarium and even a proper mini-golf course! We had lots of lovely walks along the beach. Portsmouth centre is lively and busy – lots of great shops and plenty of museums to explore too! This time we took a short ferry hop over to Gosport, to the Submarine museum. A lovely stay and a great apartment. Highly recommend it, if you are interested in staying in this area.

Perfekter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu dritt für 4 Nächte im Juli 2017 in Portsmouth und haben uns in der Wohnung sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber, schön eingerichtet und mit einem tollen Blick. Wir haben unsere Zeit genossen und können die Wohnung uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen.

Die Betreuung durch die Vermieter verlief reibungslos und absolut freundlich. Vielen herzlichen Dank!

Séjour très sympa

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Portsmouth.

Nous étions en famille à 4 et pour 4 nuits.

L'appartement à tout le confort nécessaire et à contribuer à la réussite de nos vacances. Du séjour la vue est très agréable sur la mer, elle donne sur l'entrée du port.

Keith s'était occupé de nous procurer une autorisation de stationnement pour notre voiture.

Une adresse à conseiller.

Eine tolle Woche in Southsea/Portsmouth!

  • 5 of 5

Portsmouth bietet dem Städtereisenden viel Sehenswertes! Besonders wenn man in einer so tollen und stilechten Unterkunft logiert. Schön mit Blick auf Meer und Pier gelegen erreicht man die wichtigsten Attraktionen auch zu Fuß. Die Wohnung ist blitzsauber, modern aber zum viktorianischen Gebäude passend eingerichtet. Die Vermieter sind herzlich und hilfsbereit, die ganze Abwicklung lief völlig problemlos. Wir werden hier gerne noch einmal Urlaub machen!
