Thank you very much!
We had a lovely week in Olga's apartment which was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location was perfect being so close to both the seafront and Southsea centre. There are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops within 5 minutes walk. Olga was very welcoming and we got the impression that nothing was too much trouble. There was plenty of milk, tea, coffee, breakfast cereals and fruit provided which we did not expect. Similarly washing liquid, soap, bubble bath, loo paper etc were all provided which is very helpful when staying somewhere for a short time. We had an extra guest for three nights and needed to use the sofa bed which was very comfortable. Olga was lovely and we appreciated her extending our checkout time to midday. Olga also warned us about the live music from the pub at the weekend. It was only on the Saturday night and was all over by 11 so it wasn't a problem. We hope to be able to stay again next time we are in Portsmouth.
Olga was excellent - in both her hospitality and communication. The flat was in excellent condition and lots of little considersations that made us feel welcome e.g. cereal box, milk, coffee.
There was one night where there was loud music from a nearby pub (i think) that did not help putting our children to sleep. I understand that this only happens sometimes on a sat night.
Olga was a very nice host and has a stunning flat in a great location. She offered a flexible check in time, light breakfast supplies, and comfortable accommodation. I enjoyed my stay and only hoped to have stayed longer!
Olga à été une hôte très accueillante. Juste avant le voyage, Olga à adapté son logement à nous.
Lors de notre entrée dans les lieux, elle nous à tout expliqué en détails. Son appartement était très confortable, spacieux, et tout équipé. Nous nous sommes sentis vraiment comme chez nous.
De plus, olga était disponible rapidement pour répondre à toutes nos questions.
Une hôte parfaite pour un logement parfait .
Dear Anthony, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you so much for cleaning the apartment before your departure, I was amazed how tidy it was after you've left. I also appreciate your eagerness to sort recycling waste! ;) Take care guys and I hope to see you again in the future!
What a delightful and spacious flat in an excellent location in Southsea.
We had a very relaxing 2 night stay last weekend. Beautifully furnished with all necessary amenities, and importantly, a very comfortable bed.
Olga is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.
