We are 2 couples we adored our week in Porsmouth! The house is in a very charming district of the city, The house is very well, clean and equipped with a space garden!
The architecture, the restaurants, the nearness of beaches and night life deserve to stay in this region! We shall turn to it!

Great property and location

Review submitted: June 28, 2012   Date of arrival: June 7, 2012

My family and I just spent a wonderful 2 weeks here. The location cannot be beat, you are steps from all the shops and restaurants in downtown Portsmouth. The house is well equipped (even had sharp knives in the kitchen!) and spacious enough that our kids were able to spread out without a problem. It was also spotless snd very clean. The garden was a bonus, a great place to enjoy coffee in the morning and the kids spent hours playing in their "secret" garden. The owners were accommodating and helpful, we enjoyed meeting them. Having a driveway to park in was also a plus. My only very minor negative was that you can hear music at night from some of the restaurants/bars close by, but it was never enough to wake kids or keep any of us up, even though I am a very light sleeper - and what do you expect when you are living downtown! All in all, this was a great rental, we really enjoyed making it our home for a few weeks and highly recommend.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Owners response: Sheafe St. is a super secret Residential street in the very middle of Downtown Portsmouth--Unbelievable Location! There are restaurants and bars within blocks
of this street-- some of the Music actually comes from Prescott Park Riverfront Shows- which is just 3 Blocks away.
New this year for the Admiral Sheafe House are anderson Insulated windows with exterior storms giving a Triple glass sound protection. I can personally say that the exterior sounds have been reduced substantially, all with a Historic District approval.
So if you want to be in the Center of Portsmouth, yet still have Parking, a pocket garden, and a meticulously restored Historic House..........
Bon Nuit! JWSobel Owner
