Your place

Set within an exclusive part of Southsea next to Canoe Lake this quiet and upmarket character flat has a spacious bedroom with a new double bed to rest your weary head.

The Space

Equipped also with a new mattress topper and fresh linen, this makes for a very comfortable place to lay down your weary head. A lovely place to stay in a nice, clean apartment. Bathroom and toilet to be shared, but, as you can see from the pictures, I keep a tidy home.

The Space cont'd
I am more than suitably equipped to host the discerning traveller. Naturally there will be clean towels, a hairdryer and good wireless internet connection.

Breakfast will normally comprise cereals, 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.

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 all over the world and lived in Colombia, Nicaragua, India and the Middle East. I enjoy meeting new people and airbnb is a wonderful platform for that. Please see previous positive reviews from guests hosted.

Your location
N.B. For GPS/sat nav users please note the property is in Southsea not Portsmouth.

There is off-road parking if required. Fratton Station is approximately a 20 minute walk although an inexpensive taxi ride. The number 1 bus stops on the adjacent Festing Road and arrives at Gunwharf Quays in approximately 10 minutes. The number 2 bus can be caught on the nearby Albert Road and goes to Portsmouth city centre and then Gunwharf Quays. This is a very attractive neighbourhood and a clean and safe area.

A few pointers on local facilities and amenities: if you could throw a stone a few hundred metres then you might hit the seafront. Staying here you are right by Canoe Lake (1 minute walk) and the popular Albert Road, with its unusual shops, bars and restaurants is also accessible by foot (3 minute walk). Palmerston Road or Marmion Road shopping areas can be reached within 20-25 minutes on foot. Gunwharf Quays is just over a couple of miles distance, as is The Hard for ferry access to Gosport, Isle of Wight, France and Guernsey but everything is fairly close by in Pompey.

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 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.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I hope to hear from you and host you soon.

  • I had a great time staying with Asaph! He helped me with my travel to Portsmouth, directions and Information, which was very handy, and made me feel very welcome. The Appartement is great, very light and cosy and clean. We got to watch the Football together and had a great time. I can highly recommend the accommodation.

  • I stayed with Asaph for 3 nights in mid-October and he was an excellent host. The house was very clean and the room was exactly as described on the listing.

    Asaph is a well travelled gentleman and we therefore enjoyed good chats about travel, philosophy, music and politics. He also gave me some helpful pointers on Portsmouth and surrounding area.

    Would highly recommend him and his flat to anyone looking to stop over in Portsmouth for a few nights.

    October 2013
  • That was my second time to stay at Asaph's place. His place and the room are clean, comfortable and welcoming as before.
