“Nice place, great location, great acess to everything in all directions.. by walking”

**All below is personally done by us, so its all TRUE.**

Location is central

- in the vicinity of LauraLee House itself, just across the lane is a well stocked convenience store which opens at 6 AM.
- Just a short walk a few lanes away is Osborne Street with lots of eateries, some department stores, shops full of different varieties, even a Muslim Halal Meat Shop too.
- Area is safe to walk after midnight.

A bit of additional walking in all direction and it gets exciting.
and all within a comfortable, safe, leisure walking pace of about 20 minutes max.
To the North - the University & College and just across the street from the tertiary schools is Commercial St with banks, malls, shopping, eating places and more shopping places and thats where Primarks is located.
To The South - The Hard Bus Terminal, Gunwharf Quay huge mall with nice discounts. Walk is about 20mins of leisure stroll.
Taxi from The Hard to Lauralee House is less than 5 pounds, even after midnite its still less than 5 pounds and cheaper 20p than daytime.
To the East - 20 mins Walking distance to the nice shops and eateries of Albert Road and Highland Road. Just follow the main road path of Kings Road near to Lauralee House and you wont go wrong.
To the South - the Sea, and long stretches of path beside the sea for strolls, exercises, jogging, eating, entertainment with games arcades and miniature golf, and keep on walking 30 mins to reach pond of swans, museums, aquariums, nice short hills to view the sea, fort,
- and you can take Hovercraft to Isle Of Wright. A most beautiful place. One full day is not enough. Just use the public buses at Isle Of Wright and get a daily pass for groups to save cost.

If you prefer to take a bus, just walk from Lauralee House to the main roads of Kings Road to the North or Duisburg Way to the South to take the buses that should bring you to all 4 directions for a small fee. Public buses are at regular intervals.

The house itself is fantastic.
- comfortable space for kitchen if you are into marketing and then cooking. Fully stock plates and cooking utensils, Nice Living Room with dining table, TWO comfortable-size bedrooms.
- Washing Machine, electric water heater, additional huge sized boiler to supply hot water for all purposes, roomy bathroom, tv, very good WIFI speed, tv, wall heaters, racks to dry clothes, spacious fridge,
- Landlord and previous occupiers will be generous in leaving behind washing powder, coffee, tea, sugar, salt, chocolates etc etc.

Easy self-disposal of rubbish and litter just behind the unit. Area is clean and safe.

Just spend a few minutes once you arrive in doing an Orientation and Familiarisation with Gill who explains how to use equipments for whole house and how to dispose accumulated rubbish.

Gill have been very fast respond to my queries way before the actual date of our arrival.
So by the time we met, its just like old friends.

This place is beyond expectations. I know it will be good, but I am happily surprised that IT WAS THAT GOOD.

“Tip Top Accomodation, well worth a stay, all amenities with easy access”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Lauralee House is very clean, tidy , Gill was very welcoming. Information sheets detailling cafes, places to go , taxis all very helpful. The Co-op store is just opposite the Lauralee House. I was able to wash my dirty clothes in the washing machine and dry them in the tumble drier as both are in Lauralee House. I had a wonderful holiday there , buses were every 10 minutes to go to Commercial Road Shops, GunWharf Quays, The Dockyard and South Parade Pier. I have never stayed that close tomClarence Pier before. I went on the hovercraft to the Isle Of Wight , which took only 10'minutes, the sun shone , plenty of cafes and shops , sandy beach there as well.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Thanks to Gill for our wonderful stay in Portsmouth, the welcome was friendly she showed us around the very well equipped flat, it had everything you could ever need for a holiday let. There was even a ice cream in the fridge for our young boy.
The location was very close to the common and sea front and so ideal for our stay.
The only thing was the pub across the road noise may be an issue if you are a light sleeper.

“Fabulous accomodation”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Very central apartment , car hardly needed as lots of attractions within walking distance. Opposite the hovercraft for the Isle of Wight and Southsea common. Every appliance you could wish for is included and everything is beautifully clean thoughtfully arranged. Lots of local information was left , restaurants, supermarkets etc. Gill the owner met us on arrival and was so helpful . She even left ice cream in the freezer for my little boy ! We had a wonderful week and we would thoroughly recommend Laurelee House to all kinds of couples or young families.
