Guestbook comments from the manager

“Super summer holiday - tons of space for in-laws and grandchildren on both sides!”



5 of 5 stars Reviewed today for a stay in August 2016







What a beautiful house with all mod cons, we love to cook and the kitchen is first rate, not only beautiful with bars stools and white leather sofas but utensils falling out of every cupboard! The children loved the playhouse, climbing frame, play parks, forest and foreshore and trampoline park. The sea really is on your door step and the village of Emsworth ( a few minutes walk) has it all - the amenities at the property and in the village are superb. The owner was incredibly helpful and even sent us money off vouchers for all the local attractions - too many to see in one trip. Thank you Martine, thank you Emsworth.

Fantastic house that caters for little ones

  • 5 of 5

This house ticked all the boxes for a friends get together. We had 4 couples and and 3 children aged 3 and under and there was more than enough space for all of us!

The home was clean and tidy on our arrival and the facilities were amazing. We couldn't believe how well it catered for children from high chairs and travel cot to plastic plates and cutlery and a selection of toys, we need not have bought half our stuff with us!

The hot tub was gorgeous and relaxing for the adults.

Would highly recommend for group get togethers, our group is rapidly expanding but would still envisage us fitting in this house for a little while yet!

Highly recommend,divine,well equipped,fab location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house, it caters for everybody literally. We are an extended family to include children and grandchildren. First of all, a very big thank you to the owners, customer service was excellent, we've never had such good communication for any holiday from start through to post finish. They seemed to have insight into our needs that we hadn't even considered. Our son has cerebral palsy and the downstairs bedroom with access to en-suite, discrete portable ramps, wide open doors and spaces made life a lot easier for him and us. My husband loves to cook on holiday and was mightily impressed with the very well-equipped kitchen with three ovens. The grandchildren also loved the wide open spaces inside and out. We've never been to a holiday home with so many children's books. The fab breakfast/cocktail bar was a great place to relax when the youngsters were in bed. This really is a large luxurious house with a very well thought out design. The layout meant it was always easy to keep an eye on the mature and the young and the particular created a very well naturally lit house with the amazing French doors that opened out into the back garden. Lots of people have commented on her views about the location being to die for and it really is it's incredibly beautiful in so many ways. The area is stuffed with culture and you will find all manner of leisure activities within reach of this cool pad. We've never seen so many pubs and cafes in a genuine village, you must head to the Quay for Flintstones ice cream and we can also recommend the Bluebell pub fish and chips - in fact here we bumped into a lady who had been a victim of the floods a few years ago and she couldn't say enough about the owners who gave up their home for free until she was re-housed, this sums out hosts up I think! We loved all the small things as well such as mattresses, linen, carpets, huge TV, versatile lighting, deep deep bath , how many plates and glasses do you need, all shapes and sizes. The property was spotless, as described and excellently presented. Lastly, Daisy the dog had to be dragged into the car rather than back down to the sea - only a few steps away. Can definitely recommend for all!

Fabulous place for a 40th

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the property for a long weekend for my husbands 40th birthday and what a fabulous place to celebrate. The house was perfect, plenty of space for our family without feeling like we were on top of each other and well equipped, especially the kitchen. The garden was great size and enclosed, which was really good for our dog, plus it was lovely to make use of the hot tub, what a relaxing way to spend an afternoon! To top it all off, we were close enough to walk to the local pubs and beach :)

Martine is amazing and can't do enough to help, I would definitely recommend

Perfect House, Perfect Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes you just need a good old family get together and Harbourways was the perfect choice for our 3 generations of family!

The communication from our host, Martine, was extremely friendly and she was so helpful in recommending places to visit.

Everything has been thought about. We didn't have to bring our highchair, travel cot or stair gates as Martine already has these at the house. The sleeping arrangements are very flexible (a bonus having 2 king size sofa beds on the ground floor made for the kids to have a downstairs camp!) Also, with my mother recently recovering from hip surgery, the downstairs bedroom with access to the en-suite Jack and Jill bathroom proved perfect for her with her limited mobility.

The best thing about this property is how the spacious lounge leads out to the lush garden allowing us to have the freedom of good adult conversation indoors, while our children played happily outside in full view. The kids loved the outdoor playhouse and climbing frame and with the foreshore and woods on your door step it was a dream escape for all.

The kitchen is jaw-droppingly beautiful! I want that kitchen in my house!

The large (and spotlessly clean) hot-tub has been cleverly enclosed in a delightful summer house, allowing us to close this off from the little ones. From a safety mad Mum, this definitely made me happy!

Thank you Martine. We will be back!!
