Why Rosemarie Golini chose Portsmouth
My husbands family has owned the property since the 1950's. My husband grew up next door and planted the raspberry patch that we still pick from today in 1970! The house was built in 2003 for our family. We have lived here since.
What makes this House unique
Living in this house give us the unique feeling of always being on vacation. It is only 1 mile from the center of town with all its history, shops, restaurants and night life yet it is tucked away in a private area allowing us the pleasure of the solitude, tranquility, and visual beauty of the bay.

Amazing Labor Day weekend 2018
Our family of 6 gathered from MA, NJ, OR and NH for the Labor Day weekend. The house was perfect for us. It was spacious, comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. We cooked and ate several meals at home and found the kitchen accommodating and very well appointed. We spent a lot of time playing games, reading and talking on the beautiful deck. We loved the easy access to water - swam, kayaked and enjoyed a boat ride tour from Steve. Resident cats, Ginger and Lulu, were occasional friendly visitors.Rose and Steve were very accommodating , friendly, helpful and interested in our comfort. We would come back in a heartbeat and highly recommend this home as a place to stay.
We are proud of our wonderful city of Portsmouth and our little piece of paradise within it! So glad to share it with you, Lorry and to know you and your family enjoyed it! Come on back anytime! Best, Rosemarie and Steve
We had an amazing weekend, this was such a beautiful home! The pictures online do no justice, just stunning and we will have memories to last a lifetime. the layout was very spacious and we had plenty of space to get hair & makeup done for a wedding with beautiful floor to ceiling windows. Outdoors was also spacious with back deck, grill, firepit and seating. We enjoyed our stay. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with us!
Hello Kelly! Fantastic!! I'm so glad to hear you all had such a lovely weekend and that the house suited your needs so well. I'm glad the weather cooperated for you and you were able to enjoy the fire pit with your friends and family. (One of my favorite ways to relax after a long day!)
It was a pleasure sharing our home with you! You were lovely guests! All the best to you!
Beautiful with great views
This house was the perfect size for a group of adults to stay for the weekend of my sister's wedding. The owner was incredibly accommodating and truly exceeded my expectations. The house is spacious, comfortable, and has fantastic views. I only wish I had more time to actually spend in the house!
Perfect Location, Beautiful Accomodations
This home (and host) went above and beyond our expectations for this trip. The home is beautiful and in a perfect location with a short walk to downtown Portsmouth for any interest day or night but still tucked in a nice tranquil waterfront neighborhood. The house had plenty of space for entertaining inside and out. The home provided everything we needed for our stay and more. It was the perfect space for our getaway with friends. If we return to Portsmouth, we will absolutely hope to stay here again.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, Beth. We love to share our bit of paradise and it certainly was a pleasure to share it with you! Hopefully our paths will cross again!
Home away from home - New England charm and comfort at its best!
We didn't want to leave!
This home is one to definitely book. Spacious (pictures don't do the house justice...it is roomy and comfortable with a fabulous deck overlooking the water and beautiful yard for playing or daydreaming.). Great kitchen to cook lobsters and family dinners or enjoy takeout from local fish shack and unwind at dining room table built for a large family. Wonderful space for our three year old to play to her hearts content and the grandparents to read their books in the evening in the living room. Bedrooms are quiet, provide privacy and coziness. Movies / tv can be enjoyed in the sitting room off the master bdrm.
Fabulous owners, great little girls who shared their toys, tree "princess" house, and swingset. Close to town so you can walk along the water for happy hour or a stroll to get coffee.
Highly recommend this cozy and spacious retreat!
Courtney and Jim,
