We didn't get to meet Olga, but Jason was really helpful and very quick to answer any queries. The flat was very well appointed with furnishings to a high standard. We were not able to get a park outside, but Jason provided vouchers for parking a short distance away. A really good spot and within walking distance of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard where the Mary Rose is situated.
Olga's flat is really clean and organised and has a lovely character to it, very spacious too. The main bed was very comfortable and the sofa bed was good quality and comfortable also. Jason was very helpful with any problems and I felt I could call him if the need arose. The location is fantastic, right next to a quiet real ale pub, and the common and sea is just across the road. We will come back again. :-)
Olga and Jason were great hosts. Communication was easy and frequent, I was also allowed a flexible change to my check in and out time as I just returned from travelling. The flat was perfectly located in Southsea, near a main high street perfect for picking up some snacks, also near the seafront, walking distance to Gunwharf Quays too. The flat was tidy and no problem, felt real cosy. I had a great stay in the flat, so thanks to the lovely hosts for all your help :)
Olga and her partner are exceptional. They are kind, caring, thoughtful and wonderful hosts. Their place is nice, clean organized and lovely. I highly recommend them and their place.
Everything is as advertised.
I loved every bit of my time spent there.
The four of us spent a lovely bank holiday weekend in Olga's flat.
She was away the weekend we were there but had arranged for a friend to meet us. They were friendly, helpful and full of insider tips about the area.
The flat was clean and tidy with spacious living areas, a good kitchen and the most comfortable sofa bed!
It was well located, 15 minute walk to the train station and Isle of Wight hovercraft, 5 minutes to some gorgeous cafes, restaurants and shops, local pubs and Southsea Common just outside.
There was a lot of activity in Southsea/Isle of Wight that weekend and the flat was a great spot to be based.
Thanks for having us stay!
Olga responded quickly to our last-minute enquiry, so we were able to secure a place to stay the night before we left for the seaside. The apartment was spotless when we arrived, although Jason apologised for his cleaning job as not as good as Olga's. He was kind and responsive to our enquiries. Their dog Carlos was friendly, leaving our daughter disappointed when he went home with Jason. The apartment has a warm feeling, and we would have liked to have met Olga; perhaps next time.
As for the apartment, it had all of what we needed to make and eat our own meals (including condiments). Beds (including sofabed) were great, and the space worked well for us and our two kids. It's convenient to shops, easy to park close by, and right by the seaside, with beaches, funfair, and the hovercraft port to the Isle of Wight (and plenty we didn't get around to). It's on a quiet street off a main street, and though I was concerned about noise from a pub around the corner, it was quiet enough with the double-paned windows shut. It would be a pleasure to stay again.
The apartment is in the perfect location and a very short walk from the beach, bars, restaurant and shops. Olga and Jason are very helpful and polite and will provide you with information about what's going on in the area. The apartment is beautiful and clean! I would definately like to visit again.
Olga's flat has everything you would need for the perfect holiday. Homely atmosphere, confortable bed and perfect location (just as described)! :)
We met with Jason, Olga's partner, who is a great host, very friendly, welcoming and helpful (and has a lovely dog:)).
Even if you have only a couple of days to spend there (as we had) it will seem you spent there a whole week as you can find houndreds of different things to do and places to discover.
We highly recommend Olga's apartment with all its advanteges!
Thanks for everything Guys! :)
