great flat, superb location and everything we could possibly want.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect Southsea short break
Perfectly placed property for Southsea; you can park the car and walk around Southsea town, the seafront and on to Portsmouth. Several independent shops along Marmion Street to browse before you reach the main high street. Lovely clean and tidy maisonette, comfy beds , quirky design and plenty of room for a couple or (like us) 2 adults a teenager and a small dog. Hope to return in the future! ⚓️
