Portsmouth is a unique island city, surrounded by the Solent and little more than 2 miles across, its waterfront life, whether historical or modern is never far away.  Seafaring has shaped our local history and the sea still adds to the life of the city today; sailing, yacht racing - Fastnet and Cowes - diving and water sports attract  many visitors every year.


Visit  the Spinnaker with its stunning panoramic  views, the Historic Dockyard steeped in maritime tradition or treat yourself to a shopping spree at Gun Wharf Quays Shopping Village with over 85 designer outlets.  Dine al fresco and watch the comings and goings of  the busy harbour or just enjoy a leisurely walk along the Esplanade.


Portsmouth makes an ideal place for a summer holiday whether you are a retired couple or a family with young children: have a break without breaking the bank .A self catering holiday provides good value especially in these days when the family budget is stretched. More economical than a hotel or guest house for a family,  you can relax in our home from home.


Our properties are all late Victorian houses built for naval workers. In more recent times, these terraced houses have become modern family homes. During term time, our houses are occupied by students but in July and August we offer accommodation to holidaymakers. As you will see, our houses are refurbished to an exceptionally high standard providing comfortable and affordable  holiday homes.


You will be staying close to the local shopping centre and within easy reach of the waterfront and other local attractions. Taxis are cheap and readily available in the city. As with other cites, parking is regulated and you will need to  have a daily residential parking permit which can be bought from us for 1.95 per 24hrs. whether you come by car or train, there is so much to do locally that a week is hardly enough to enjoy all that Portsmouth has to offer.
