The flat is what we call "split level" here in England. It occupies it's very own floor of the house, with it's own front door yet has the interest of the rooms having slightly different levels with two or three steps leading up or down to the different rooms. The house itself is very old - it was built in the mid 1840's at the start of the Victorian era which is why it has such features. As a matter of interest it was built as a "Gentleman's Town House" and was lived in throughout the Victorian era by Commanders and Captains of the Her Majesty's Royal Navy, with the top floor being the servant's quarters. The floor joists are in fact old teak ship's timbers! The houses on Auckland Road West are some of the very earliest in the area - back when Southsea common was waterlogged by the sea and our famous architect Thomas Owen was active in the area! The ladies coming to visit the house would have worn wire-framed dresses and taken a stroll down the "Lady's Mile". Inevitably the master of the house would have received some socially important visitors, and I like to think that our local doctor and famous author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (the creator of Sherlock Holmes) may have been among them! More recently our neighbours have even included Arnold Schwarzenegger who lived across the road for a while as a boy. Apart from a few modern comforts alot of the originality of the house still remains and I look on myself as a custodian just passing through. It gives me great pleasure now to be able to share such a special house with my airbnb guests from the UK and all over the world, plus an occasional modern day member of Her Majesty's Royal Navy!

In this very popular & spacious flat you will find everything you need from towels & snuggly dressing gowns to board games, books, CD's and DVD's. There is a smart TV in the lounge, and another one in the bedroom, so it's possible for the grown-ups to stay up and watch a bit of telly when the kids are in bed, or just have an early night snuggled up in bed! This is a lovely place to stay, and 100% green: all the electricity comes from 100% renewable sources like sun, wind and water :-)

I really have tried to make this a home from home so you really do enjoy your stay. You will find everything very clean. I am in the building, and my mum is just downstairs, so we are just a knock away if there is anything you need or want to know!

Portsmouth, England, Bretland

If you’re planning a romantic weekend getaway for two, family trip, business trip, or celebrating a special occasion in our Great Waterfront City, then this is your ideal place! With the benefit of being located on a quiet road, yet also only being a few hundred metres away from so many great things. In literally that distance you will have passed many numerous and varied restaurants/take-outs, many pubs (including a good Wetherspoons), Waitrose, late opening Tesco Express and Sainsbury's, the local library, etc etc. Within a few minutes walk you will find yourself at: King Henry VIII's Southsea Castle (note the new child friendly fountains closed due covid); the D-Day Museum with the impressive landing craft LCT7074 and her American and British tanks having recently been installed; Blue Reef Aquarium; the Pyramids Gym; Southsea Common; Band-stand (with it's free Summertime weekend music hopefully restarting in 2021); the Rock Garden; children’s shallow Splash Area is closed due covid; Tennis Courts; Palmerston Road Shopping Precinct (with it's Farmer's Markets / Food Fayres, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Iceland, New Look, Boots, One-legged Jockey vintage clothes shop; Fatface etc); Skate Park; Hovercraft to the Isle of Wight; and… the Beach! Walk further down the promenade and you will come to; South Parade Pier; Canoe Lake (there is a super play area next to it. The children's fountains are closed due covid but there is a really popular Zip-Wire!; the lovely Model Village; the Rose Garden; Crazy Golf; Putting Green; Bowling Green. Walk in the other direction and you will come to the: Funfair; Old Portsmouth (and the thrillingly narrow entrance to Portsmouth Harbour where you can see the big ships passing really close by); Fish Market; Isle of Wight Car Ferry; Gunwharf Quays (with the amazing Spinnaker Tower); Historic Dockyard (with HMS Victory, Warrior; Mary Rose). Head North instead and we are close to Marmion Road and Castle Road with their Deli's and collectable stores, the King's Theatre and the many varied places along the artsy Albert Road. If you choose to eat out then you certainly will not need a taxi to get you back – we are in the heart of gastronomic heaven!

I adore Portsmouth; The Great Waterfront City! I was born here, so am proud to call myself a proper "Pompey" boy. I did make the mistake of moving away for a while, but I'm back home now and I live in a flat below the one in which you'll be staying, so will be on hand to help you out with anything at all you might need during your very welcome visit; it's very important to me that you have a comfortable stay. I have been hosting for a while now and during that time have been lucky to have had some really super guests. Some travel just a few miles, some from the other side of the globe, but I am always flattered each time anybody chooses me to book with here in Southsea. I hope to be able to say hi at some point during your stay to meeting you, and helping in my small way some good memories to be made. I know that I am really lucky to have a garden in this small city island. I do enjoy working in it, and knowing that other people get pleasure from it. The wildlife that it brings in has made me appreciate how the small efforts we make do matter. We had wrens nest this year and have 5 tiny chicks. They dropped out of a hole in the cherry tree and bounced around the hydrangea bushes. This year blue-tits have nested in one of the nestboxes I knocked up with some old floorboards. I have 40 years experience of home-brewing beer & fermenting wine to the highest standard, love live music and good diction, am a big fan of swimming (wish I could do it myself!), refuse to drive, cycle everywhere, have a tandem and do not have a smart phone.

You'll have the whole flat to yourselves - I'll leave you to your own devices; come and go as you like, but if you do need me I am in the building, and just a knock or phone-call away! I have made alot of suggestions of places to go in my airbnb "guidebook" - there is obviously plenty to do with many annual events on top, and I have also made mention in it of my special places, rainy day places to take children, and anything my guests tell me they have enjoyed.
