About simon dowdell

We are hard working family who love to unwind in and around Port Solent. It's such a great location, by day we enjoy sailing and by night we enjoy lazy evenings, either dining out at the local restaurants or relaxing in our lovely holiday home.

Great Location, Superb Proprrty

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house as a base for our daughter's wedding for the ceremony at Portchester Castle and reception at The Port House. 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.

We were all extremely happy with this holiday let. The owners have thought of everything. We couldn't wish for a better location and nice neighbourhood. I couldn't recommend this highly enough.

As soon as we walked through the door we felt comfortable and were very impressed with the delightful outlook onto the boats moored up right outside. The house feels very comfortable - all the rooms are very spacious and so well equipped. The owners have put a huge amount of effort into ensuring their guests are welcome, happy and comfortable. They left such clear instructions that time wasn't spent trying to 'suss' things out. We were there for a sailing event on Hayling Island which was so easy to drive to and in the evenings we strolled to the local restaurants in Port Solent. Such a lovely house I will be recommending it to anyone visiting the area.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a few days as a family, and found it was the perfect place for us. The bedrooms were spacious and having two bathrooms was very convenient. The scenery was lovely and the overall atmosphere of the place was peaceful. Only a ten minute walk away were a wide selection of restaurants and bars to choose from, and the supermarket was also a ten minute walk in the opposite direction. Overall, a very pleasant place to spend a few days.

Short stay, just for 3 nights with the family.

Honestly wish was able to stay longer, very helpful owners, great communication.

Lovely clean, bright property, I feel the pictures do not do this property justice, everything you need will be found here.

Close to shops and restaurants.

We would highly recommend staying here if visiting Portsmouth without a doubt.

Thank you.
