Quiet picturesque retreat
These deckhouses are a real find .Location is perfect and accommodation is comfortable and generously equipped. We were tempted to stay put all week but did manage to drag ourselves away to various places on the doorstep. Lovely walks and views. Would like to keep this place as a hidden secret but that would be selfish!

Real home from home
We stayed here for 9 days. It was warm and very comfortable, during a very cold spell. The sea views from the south facing balcony are spectacular. It was fully equipped with everything you need and the location peaceful and within walking distance, along the coastal path, to many good restaurants and pubs. Thoroughly recommend this place for holidays in a central location for the south coast West Sussex/Hampshire border.

Great place!!!
There is NOTHING we could find to complain about with this place. It was much better than we were expecting and as other reviews have said, everything you could think of was provided. The location was perfect. When we were there it was very quiet and felt very safe. It's within walking distance to Emsworth along the waterfront making it a very pleasant walk. The property itself was immaculate and very comfortable! We will definitely stay again if we go to that area again!

Amazing as Always!
We have now stayed at the house 3 or 4 times, we try to rent it at least once a year more if we can! It's our retreat from everyday life, so close to the sea, a quiet location with beautiful surroundings and plenty to do. The house itself is well set out with everything you would need to live there let alone holiday there! I love to cook and its has plenty of kitchen kit there to cook, bake, roast you name it, and a good selection of local menus and restaurants for when I am feeling lazy! The owners have clearly taken a lot of time to ensure a very comfortable stay, it has a lovely big bed, which is a treat from home, its nice to have a lazy morning in bed with a coffee watch the sea and the boats, not many bedrooms have that view! When its cold outside you can sit on the sofa and still watch the sun setting over the sea, when its warm we spend lots of time on the balcony, my partner is a keen photographer and its perfect for getting great shots of the wildlife and sea, we have some great sunset pictures that we are going to get blown up onto canvas. Its a great place to stay and a lovely area, pretty much everything you need within walking distance and some great touristy things to do just a short drive away either towards Chichester or Portsmouth.

Wonderful
The owners had thought of everything a visitor required during their stay, there wasn't 1 thing that we thought we needed to go out and buy during our stay other than food and drink. So very comfortable, warm and cosy. Would love to book in the summer when the views would be lovely sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine, however dark November evenings are not the right time.

Lovely location and very well equipped
The accommodation felt like a home from home - very comfortable within an attractive setting. The balcony overlooking the pond and the views to the harbour were very special. Although the weather wasn't great we did manage to relax and spend time watching the ducks and a regular visitor , a heron. There were wonderful walks and good signs for coastal paths etc around the harbour and surrounding area. The town is very attractive with good pubs,cafes, interesting shops and good local produce (although we missed a decent sized supermarket. ) It was an excellent location for visiting Portsmouth and Chichester. I would also recommend a trip to Bosham. We all had a lovely stay and would like to return some day.
