Extremely comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Property was very clean, new, modern, well designed and very convenient to restaurants and businesses. The owner was very accommodating with any questions we had. The kitchen and bathrooms are up to date and lovely to use. Lots of room in the house. Plenty of amenities. Overall, the property made for a lovely 1st time stay in Portsmouth. It was a real treat.

Would highly recommend the property.

Ideally situated and equipped, lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for our daughter's wedding, and used this as the family home during the week. It was ideal for our needs - plenty of privacy, extremely comfortable beds, the kitchen well equipped and roomy enough for multiple cooks and hosting other family members for meals. The location can't be beat - park once, walk to anything in the town of Portsmouth, including restaurants, clubs, beautiful neighborhoods, running & hiking trails, and historic sites. The pictures online can hardly capture how very well-appointed this home is in reality. The house is unassuming from the exterior, two blocks from the main drags of Portsmouth, but away from the bustle - right next door to the fire station (which does NOT use sirens when they exit for calls, so no noise issues!). But inside - WOW! It's an excellent job with a modern renovation while keeping the charm and quirkiness of an historic structure. Open interiors with beautiful beams, completely updated kitchen and baths, refinished floors, winding staircase (all bedrooms are upstairs). Clean, comfortable, spacious, plus too many extras to list. The technology set-up was somewhat beyond my personal capability, but everything (Wi-fi, cable TV, surround sound, etc.) is there. The owner was most responsive to my questions leading up to the rental, quickly emailing me back every time. We are frequent VRBO/HomeAway renters and this place is on our 'favorite ever' list. Thank you EJ - We will be back!

Perfect rental property to enjoy Portsmouth

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to find a property close to downtown Portsmouth to rent for a month to be able to spend time with our daughter's young family who live within walking distance to Portsmouth. Well we certainly believe we found the ideal property! This 2 BR, 2.5 BA home was very clean and well maintained, very comfortable, spacious and modern. Our grandson really loved stopping by to visit! The owner was very responsive and a pleasure to get to know. We would certainly stay here again. Thank you EJ and your family!!

Beautifully decorated in the heart of Portsmouth

  • 5 of 5

A short walk to everything you want to be able to do when you're in Portsmouth this historic house was decorated beautifully and had all supplies available. It was a joy to cook in the kitchen and relax in lovely surroundings.
