The one bedroom apartment was modern, and really good. It had everything. It has a great location a few minutes from the train and bus station, Gunwharf, and historic Naval Yard with HMS Victory, Mary Rose, etc. The Southsea area is about a 25 minute walk, or take the bus right across the street. The D-Day museum is at Southsea and is worth the trip. If arriving by ferry the apartment is a short taxi ride from the ferry terminal.
The owners are really nice, and helpful.
We were 6 adults and 2 young kids and the apartment was perfect for our needs. The beds were comfortable, the linen and towels were of good quality. The bathrooms and kitchens were clean and modern. The kids loved the toys and books in the living room and there were plenty of books and dvds for us. We found it very peaceful and quiet and barely heard church bells.
We loved the fact that Marx had spent the last winters of his life in this house. The location was fab, 15 mins walk to the beach which takes you through the very pleasant town of Ventnor. We had a lovely meal at the Spyglass Inn. Although it was raining for parts of our trip, we managed to have some great days out to Osbourne house (we happened to have watched Victoria and Abdul the night before!), the Castle, Needles (perhaps not the hightlight), the donkey sanctuary and a fantastic lobster meal in Shanklin followed by a rather muddy though really scenic walk back to Ventnor.
Jacquie and her sister were very friendly and quick to communicate. I highly recommend this property.Thank you both!
