Set within an exclusive part of Eastney right by the sea front...
...this quaint, character property has a cosy bedroom with a double bed (listing formerly called 'A Clean, Well-lighted Place'- (Hemingway)).
Naturally there are fresh linen, towels, a hairdryer and fast internet connection. A lovely place to stay in an attractive and clean home. Shared bathroom and toilet. The property itself has original charm with restored floorboards; outside the patio area can be used.
Breakfast is normally cereals, porridge, toast, jams, yoghurt, fruit, coffee or tea. Guests staying longer than a week can cook vegetarian food. Bags or other personal belongings may be left (if convenient) at a surcharge from midday the day prior to check-in or until 18.00 the day following check-out.
For stays greater than a week you can use the washing facilities for a fee.
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. Former Superhost- please see positive reviews from numerous guests hosted.
Your location and parking
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 (or no. 1 bus from Eastney Road). Portsmouth & Southsea train station is 2.6 miles distance. This is a clean, safe and attractive area.
Your local transport
The westbound no. 1 bus stops at Eastney Health Centre (3 minute walk north west) arriving at Gunwharf Quays in approximately 20 minutes. The no. 2 bus can also be caught at the same stop and goes to Portsmouth city centre and then Gunwharf Quays.
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 Coffee Cup Eastney (0.3 miles) on the sea front. You are also close to the Tenth Hole Tearooms on Eastern Parade (0.4 miles, 9 minute walk) and not far from Canoe Lake (0.9 miles, 17 minute walk) or 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. 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.
This is a well-regarded, clean and cosy accommodation. There is an flat fee of £15 per night extra for a second person. No cleaning fee is applied. I keep a tidy home so let the place 'as is' and the price effectively includes a £15-20 cleaning fee. If you want I also have another room where I can fit a single mattress (fee negotiable).
I look forward to hosting you soon.
As stated above.
