The SpaceYou'll love this 2nd floor apartment. It's spacious, light and brilliantly located directly overlooking Southsea Common within easy reach of beach, castle and a thriving town centre. There's always something going on in Southsea in the summer, within very easy reach: you'll hardly need wheels! Guest AccessYou will have your own large, bright bedroom (13x12 foot/4mx3.7m) quietly at the rear with one double queen-size 5ft/1.5m bed. You will also have exclusive use of a bathroom with large tub, sink and WC, and free access to the kitchen and large lounge, shared with the owner when present. A shower is also available in the apartment. Your car will have its own reserved space, right in front of the property. Free wi-fi, too. Interaction with GuestsI live in the apartment and will be always be here for your arrival. That said, I'm often out and about, and you can expect to have the apartment to yourselves for much of the time. The NeighborhoodSouthsea is fantastic for those who love the beach, sea, social life and physical activity, with many restaurants, pubs and live music venues as well as excellent shops and leisure amenities (e.g. tennis courts, volleyball, bicycle hire, mini-golf, swimming pools). The nearest pub - with live music at weekends - is 30 metres away! The apartment is in a very popular, smart, friendly and sought-after neighbourhood - very close to the big, green, open space of the Common and the beach. We're also quite close to the Historic Royal Navy dockyard, the Spinnaker Tower, Gunwharf Quays shopping mall, and the cross-Channel ferry port of Portsmouth - all within 2-3 miles. The apartment lies right next to the annual Victorious music Festival in August, and 200 metres from the start/finish of the annual (late October) Great South Run. Getting AroundYou are 300m from the nearest bus stop, with rapid and frequent connection to the railway stations, bus station and Portsmouth city centre. Southsea shops (including Waitrose, John Lewis, Debenhams, Laura Ashley) are just a 7-10 min walk away. Other Things to NoteThe apartment does not have an elevator. There are about 45 steps up from ground level to the second floor (US - third floor). A (generous) Continental breakfast is available at £3.50 per person if you would wish. German and Dutch guests are very welcome - we can speak your languages. French and Spanish are also understood (but not very well spoken, I'm afraid).

The SpaceThe house has been tastefully decorated with a good mix of antique, designer and second hand furniture and decorations. There are lots of great period features throughout the property including high ceilings, original picture rails, coving, ceiling roses, stained glass, fireplaces and wooden floors. The bedroom is comfortably equipped with a double bed, chest of drawers and a vintage leather armchair. The room is at the back of the house so street noise is not an issue and a large window lets in plenty of light. It is located upstairs next to the bathroom which has a deep double-ended bath and overhead shower. There is a second toilet downstairs. There are two other bedrooms on this floor which are also available to rent. Please check out my other listings for more details. Downstairs there is an entrance hall off of which is the living room which boasts a large fireplace, high ceilings (with original coving and ceiling rose), wooden floors, stained glass windows comfortable seating and a large flatscreen HD television, DVD player and TiVo box with Virgin cable subscription and Netflix. There are a LOT of books in the house which you're welcome to read during your stay and a good selection of board games. At the end of the hall is everybody's favourite room in the house - the kitchen! It's a large open plan kitchen with exposed brick walls and lots of great period features. It's fully equipped with gas hobs, electric oven, Dualit toaster, Bosch kettle, Smeg fridge, etc. The dining table also converts into a pool table! The living room opens out into the conservatory which is a great reading area with leather club sofa and view out to the garden. Hidden under the countertop in the conservatory is a washing machine, dish washer, microwave and a second freezer. The garden is small but functional with a comfortable three seat sofa and small firepit/BBQ on the raised decking area. There is space down the side of the house at the back to safely store your bicycle if you have one. The house is located on Frensham Road in Southsea which is a beautiful tree-lined street of gorgeous Victorian terraced houses. It is blocked off at one end meaning it's not used as a thoroughfare and therefore there is hardly any traffic. It's conveniently located just 10 minutes from the many shops, bars and restaurants on Albert Road, a 15-20 minute walk to the seafront and has a Co-op, greengrocers, Spar, Lidl, Tesco Express all within 5 minutes walk. Fratton train station is only a 10 minute walk from the house and from there you can get direct trains to London in just 90 minutes. There is no permit parking on Frensham and there are always parking spots on the road outside the house. **THINGS TO NOTE** CLEANING: To try and keep costs down for my guests I do not make the cleaning charge mandatory like some other hosts, instead it is an optional extra. I try to keep the house cleaned to a standard I would hope that most people would be more than happy with but it is a home rather than a holiday rental and if I am very busy prior to your arrival or if there are other guests staying the standard may have slipped slightly. If you would like the property to be cleaned to a higher standard then please give me notice and I can arrange for a professional cleaner and this will incur an additional £20 cleaning charge. IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO PAY THE EXTRA CLEANING CHARGE PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN IT COMES TIME TO GRADE THE CLEANLINESS IN THE REVIEW. OTHER GUESTS: Please note that the other two bedrooms are also available to rent so there may be other guests staying at the same time as you. If this is going to be an issue for you please advise before booking. I hope that's covered most things but if you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch. Guest AccessGuests will have exclusive use of their bedroom. The rest of the house (with the exception of other bedrooms of course) is a shared space which the guests are welcome to use as they wish. We only ask that they respect the fact that it is indeed a 'shared house' (either with ourselves or other guests) and therefore to keep the noise down, share the space and keep the house tidy. Interaction with GuestsThis varies depending on my schedule as I am often out and about or recently have been working away most weeks. Sometimes if I am working away then guests may have the entire house to themselves or they may be sharing with other guests without a 'host'. If guests wish to keep to themselves this does not bother us in the slightest, at the same time, if you wish to watch television with us or chat over a cup of coffee then we are equally happy to do so if we are available. The NeighborhoodFrensham Road is a beautiful tree-lined street in a charming area of Southsea. Close to all the local amenities. Please look at my guidebook for places to visit during your stay. Getting AroundThere are lots of good bus connections nearby or Fratton train station is just a 5-10 minute walk from the house. From here you can get trains into Portsmouth City Centre (Portsmouth & Southsea Station) or the Historic Dockyards (Portsmouth Harbour Station). Regular trains also leave from here going to Southampton, nearby towns and villages or London (which is just 90 minutes by direct train to Waterloo). Taxis are relatively inexpensive in Portsmouth and it is normally about £3.50 to travel from the house to most of the bars and restaurants in Central Portsmouth and Southsea. Other Things to NoteAs mentioned above, there is sometimes a cat living in the house so please check beforehand if she might be there if you have bad allergies or phobias. This is one of three rooms in the house which are rented out. Sometimes you will be the only guests, on other occasions it might be that all three rooms are rented and therefore you are sharing the house with other guests. If you want to know in advance then just ask!

    The Space...this quaint, character property has an adorably cosy bedroom with a wonderfully comfy double bed to rest your weary head. Naturally there will be fresh linen and a good mattress topper. There are also towels, a hairdryer (if required) and fast internet connection. You will have a lovely place to stay in an attractive and clean home. Bathroom and toilet are shared but I keep a tidy place. As to the house generally there is original charm with restored floorboards downstairs, and in clement weather, the patio area outside can be used. Your breakfast Breakfast is normally cereals, porridge, toast, jams, yoghurt, fruit, coffee or tea. Depending upon the time of your stay I may be able to provide you with other home-made cuisine at an additional fee (or for lengthier stays allow you to cook). Bags or other personal belongings may be left if convenient and at a surcharge from midday the day prior to check-in or until 18.00 the day following check-out. Your host I have travelled widely and lived in Central and South America, as well as India and the Middle East. I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and airbnb is a wonderful platform for that. Please see positive reviews from numerous guests hosted. Your location There is free off-road parking on my street and adjacent ones but like much of Southsea this is on a first-come, first-served basis. Good availability during the day but much less from 5pm. Fratton Station, 1.7 miles away, is an inexpensive taxi ride. Portsmouth & Southsea train station is 2.6 miles distance. Your local transport The westbound number 1 bus stops at Eastney Health Centre (3 minute walk north west) arriving at Gunwharf Quays in approximately 20 minutes. The number 2 bus can also be caught at the same stop and goes to Portsmouth city centre and then Gunwharf Quays. This is a clean, safe and attractive area. Your local facilities and amenities The nearby St. George’s Road takes you right up to the Esplanade and seafront. Coffee lovers are within a five minute walk of the excellent Coffee Cup Eastney (0.3 miles) on the sea front. Staying here you are also close to the Tenth Hole Tearooms on Eastern Parade (0.4 miles, 9 minute walk). You are not far from Canoe Lake (0.9 miles, 17 minute walk) and the Royal Marines Museum (0.6 miles, 13 minute walk). The popular Albert Road, with its unusual shops, bars and restaurants is also accessible on foot (0.7 miles, 13 minute walk). Palmerston Road or Marmion Road shopping areas can be reached by foot within 30 minutes (1.5 miles). Gunwharf Quays is 2.5 miles distance, as is The Hard for ferry access to Gosport, Isle of Wight, France and Guernsey but everything is within close reach in Pompey given the cheap taxi fares and excellent public transport. For local culture you have the D-Day Museum on the seafront as well as the Portsmouth City Museum (Museum Road) and the Maritime Museum (for HMS Victory, the Mary Rose and the Warrior) which is close by the Hard. Theatres include the Kings (Albert Road) and the historic Theatre Royal in the city centre. Port Solent (6 miles) is worth a visit with its first-class marina, bars, restaurants, cafes and shops. Wonderful walks along the seafront may include Southsea Castle and the Hoverport to the Isle of Wight. Surrounding Portsmouth are many beautiful spots such as Fishbourne Roman Palace, the village of Bosham, Chichester and Petersfield. Your commitment This is a well-regarded, clean and cosy bed and breakfast. The fee is reasonable given the effort/cost expended to clean (minimum two hours, normally more); to wash and change the bed sheets; to iron the bedding. There is an flat fee of £15 per night extra for a second person. I keep a clean home but a cleaning fee of £20 can be applied. If you want somewhere cheaper, options abound. If you’d like to stay more than one night, the fee is negotiable. If you want somewhere more economical, I have another room where I can fit a single mattress (£15-20). To play on words from Fawlty Towers, this is not a borstal, also not a hotel but a great b and b :) Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I hope to host you soon. Guest AccessAs stated above. Interaction with GuestsAs much as I can pending upon other commitments. The NeighborhoodAs described.

The garden is small but functional with a comfortable three seat sofa and small firepit/BBQ on the raised decking area. There is space down the side of the house at the back to safely store your bicycle if you have one alternatively we have two (rather rubbishy but still usable!) bicycles which you are welcome to borrow during your stay - just give us a heads up and make sure you lock it up. The house is located on Frensham Road in Southsea which is a beautiful tree-lined street of gorgeous Victorian terraced houses. It is blocked off at one end meaning it's not used as a thoroughfare and therefore there is hardly any traffic. It's conveniently located just 10 minutes from the many shops, bars and restaurants on Albert Road, a 15-20 minute walk to the seafront and has a Co-op, greengrocers, Spar, Lidl, Tesco Express all within 5 minutes walk. Fratton train station is only a 5-10 minute walk from the house and from there you can get direct trains to London in just 90 minutes. There is no permit parking on Frensham and there are always parking spots on the road outside the house. **THINGS TO NOTE** CAT: Living in the house is Tooticky, a small black cat who likes to keep to herself (but those of you with allergies please be aware). CLEANING: To try and keep costs down for my guests I do not make the cleaning charge mandatory like some other hosts, instead it is an optional extra. I try to keep the house cleaned to a standard I would hope that most people would be more than happy with but it is a home rather than a holiday rental and if I am very busy prior to your arrival or if there are other guests staying the standard may have slipped slightly. If you would like the property to be cleaned to a higher standard then please give me notice and I can arrange for a professional cleaner and this will incur an additional £20 cleaning charge. IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO PAY THE EXTRA CLEANING CHARGE PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN IT COMES TIME TO GRADE THE CLEANLINESS IN THE REVIEW. I hope that's covered most things but if you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch. INCLUDED: WiFi Bedding and Linen Towels (to cut down on laundry costs and to help the environment I prefer to use lightweight Turkish towels, please advise if you'd prefer traditional) Tea, Coffee, Cereal, Bread Free Parking OPTIONAL EXTRAS (please advise in advance): £20 Professional Cleaning £5 (per person) Cooked Breakfast Guest AccessGuests are welcome to use all of the communal rooms in the house - the living room, kitchen, conservatory, bathrooms, garden, etc. Interaction with GuestsThis varies depending on the schedule of myself and my boyfriend. Sometimes if we are both working away then guests may have the entire house to themselves. On other occasions there may be other guests staying. If guests wish to keep to themselves this does not bother us in the slightest, at the same time, if you wish to watch television with us or chat over a cup of coffee then we are equally happy to do so if we are available. PLEASE NOTE THERE MAY BE OTHER GUESTS STAYING AT THE SAME TIME AS YOU. The NeighborhoodFrensham Road is a beautiful tree-lined street in a charming area of Southsea. Close to all the local amenities. Please look at my guidebook for places to visit during your stay. Getting AroundThere are lots of good bus connections nearby or Fratton train station is just a 5-10 minute walk from the house. From here you can get trains into Portsmouth City Centre (Portsmouth & Southsea Station) or the Historic Dockyards (Portsmouth Harbour Station). Regular trains also leave from here going to Southampton, nearby towns and villages or London (which is just 90 minutes by direct train to Waterloo). Taxis are relatively inexpensive in Portsmouth and it is normally about £3.50 to travel from the house to most of the bars and restaurants in Central Portsmouth and Southsea. Other Things to NoteAs mentioned above, there is a cat living in the house so this is not suitable for those with bad allergies or phobias. You are welcome to borrow mine or my boyfriend's bike during your stay. This is one of three rooms in the house which are rented out. Sometimes you will be the only guests, on other occasions it might be that all three rooms are rented and therefore you are sharing the house with other guests. If you want to know in advance then just ask! If the age or sex of other guests is going to be a problem (for example if you do not want to share the house with children or you are a woman travelling who does not want to share the house with male guests) then please let me know before booking. Also, please advise in advance your planned arrival and departure times. Check in before 4pm is often possible but we do need plenty of notice as there are often other guests in the room the day before and we need time to clean the room and sheets between guests.

The rest of the house (with the exception of other bedrooms of course) is a shared space which the guests are welcome to use as they wish.

Very relaxed we are used to having people here at the house and have had guests for 14 years. Its an interesting journey !!The house is a shared accommodation and we have a live in housekeeper.

                                                    A Charming, stylish and well appointed Cottage with 2 double bedrooms, open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen, and a great courtyard garden for summer entertaining.Situated in the heart of Southsea, a really nice part of the world (in our humble opinion) The town is very compact so you can get most places quickly on foot, and just about everything you need is close to hand, including the beach, parks, independent shops, coffee shops, bakeries, pubs, restaurants and bars, the King's theartre, a smart shopping precinct with a Waitrose , John Lewis, Debenhams, Costa, Boots... etc. Also of note is the Portsmouth historic dockyard, one of the UK's premier attractions.Southsea is lively enough for most, but laid back and chilled too. Gun Wharf is also nearby, with a very decent range of lively restaurants (mostly chains) and a discount outlet stores.Everything in Portsmouth & Southsea is pretty much in walking distance, but if your legs are tired taxis are plentiful, and cheap! The city is well connected; Portsmouth and Southsea railway station is 90mins from London Waterloo with frequent services. There is also convenient local ferry transport to the Isle of Wight, Gosport and France.On street parking permit available on request. For elderly guests and guests with young children, we like them to be aware that the staircase is quite steep, and there is no downstairs loo. there are also a few sharp corners at worktop height. A Charming, stylish and well appointed Cottage in the heart of Southsea with 2 double bedrooms, open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen, and a great courtyard garden for summer entertaining. A perfect base for Goodwood, the Americas Cup, Local festivals, etc
