Really spacious, beautiful house. Like home from home

Perfect location for walks along the water and lunch in town. Really well equipped kitchen and house is beautiful and spacious. We had a perfect weekend with the boys playing golf whilst we visited gunwharf for some retail therapy.

Great venue for extended family gathering. House was lovely and cosy, and had everything you might possibly need. The location was ideal with so much to see and do locally, and a little further afield. All in all a great family home.

Excellent House.

  • 4 of 5

The property was a very good size for a family stay of 12 - 8 adults 4 children.

The jacuzzi is very large so can fit many people in.

Lots of supplies in the kitchen for plates, cutlery, glasses etc.

If staying in the colder months; I would recommend that you ensure you go and purchase wood and so on for the open fire as the front room doesn’t heat up as quick due to being a large room.

Plenty of seats and space for all the family.

Owner's Response: Hi Dale, we are so glad you had an excellent stay. So sorry you visited in the coldest of times. I didn't realise you were feeling a little chilly - there are portable back up heaters under the stairs and I will add a note to the Welcome Pack. Thank you for choosing us and taking the time to review our property and we are glad you plan to return. Best wishes, Martine and Mark

Lovely, spacious, clean and relaxing :)

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great area and not to far away from Portsmouth, clean tidy and well equipped, the bedrooms were spacious and to a high standard, bathrooms/wet rooms were brilliant. The living room was lovely and cosy with plenty of room for everyone in our party. The kitchen is stunning and a surprise in every cupboard with utensils, stocked with herbs spices and every day things you completely forget to take with you. The kitchen and dining room looked out onto the garden which was a decent size and lovely to sit out in the morning with a cuppa. The hot tub is well maintained and covered for the lovely wet English weather. I would highly recommend this property and will be back again. It’s a massive thumbs up from this party of 7. Great communication with Martine and easy to book. Well worth it.

Great location for our needs

  • 4 of 5

The house fitted our needs to accommodate a group of people who were attending Goodwood FOS. We loved the outdoor table setting for eating on the warm summer nights we had.

Please note that Emsworth Village itself does not accommodate anyone to eat on a Sunday night after 7pm. This was very frustrating for a group of tired people who didn't fancy cooking.
