"Four of us had a lovely week at Horizon View. Initial impressions of the property as you drive up to it, as someone else has said, aren’t great – it looks quite tired and unkempt outside at the front as well as the back - but inside the property is great! It’s spacious, light, and bright, and well laid-out with some stylish-looking furniture (although one of the leather sofas is quite badly worn). It’s a perfect location for visiting plenty of places, with Hayling Island itself providing excellent facilities. The welcome pack was much appreciated and first impressions inside were that everywhere you could see was spotlessly clean. The beds were comfortable and we had pretty much everything we needed. The views from the balcony were spectacular and we were treated to some fantastic sunsets. There are, however, some issues that need noting... On arrival, the living area had a very strong smell of dogs. I had spoken with Debby the owner in advance of arriving and mentioned that I am asthmatic and allergic to dogs (when we booked the property, there was either no note of dogs being allowed, or we missed it entirely, but it’s something we usually check for obvious reasons) and she kindly advised that she would ask the cleaners to make sure that they did an extra deep clean so that everywhere was spotless, which I really appreciated. Unfortunately, they hadn’t. Following our noses (mine, by which time, was itching badly, as were my eyes, resulting in the need to take antihistamines and inhalers) we discovered a LOT of fluff, dirt, dog hairs, and general detritus under the two sofas. It took us less than 15 minutes to sweep and mop the floor. The sofas move easily, so it’s not a difficult job for the cleaners to do, especially when they’ve been specifically asked. We also cleared the cushions and the rather shabby throws away from the sofas, as they had dog hairs on them, and wiped over the sofas. We opened all of the windows to allow the air to circulate and by the following evening my breathing had improved and thankfully I was fine for the rest of the week. A couple of other things – there was a toilet brush left in the downstairs toilet – with the seat down! – and the downstairs shower screen had not been cleaned at all. I noted all of this to Debby in reply to her text on our return (she’d mentioned at the beginning of our stay that she had something personal that she had to attend to, so we didn’t want to disturb her then), but I didn’t hear back from her with an explanation or apology, which is rather disappointing.Also, the bin lids in the kitchen hadn’t been cleaned at all and it would have been useful to have some oven gloves in the kitchen. The upstairs bedrooms and bathroom were all fine, although a shaver socket in the upstairs bathroom and a mirror in the second double bedroom would have be helpful.All in all it was a great week and we can recommend the property to small or large groups and anyone who has dogs or isn’t allergic to them, but sadly it’s somewhere that we’ll be able to go back to for that reason alone."

"we do not make a habit of making comments against properties, although this year has caused us to do so. This emphasises the need to detail the bad as well as good points on a let. good points: as detailed above. let down for the owners was that the downstairs wooden floors to lounge and kitchen were filthy and we had to go out get floor wipes and clean them on arrival - dog biscuits, hair and whatever made brown and dirty marks on the floor. The kitchen, being small, needs to be wiped over regularly to control grease build up on doors and shelves, apparent that this had not been done. We cleaned areas we used, kept it to a minimum, as we did not want first day to be cleaning day. such a shame from the point of view of first impressions. We put it down to dog owners not caring about the state of the floor, and the owner not doing a quick clean when they checked it. upstairs was good. Second bad point, the rear of the property surrounded by high blocks of flats- did we miss this on your description.more care needs to be given , we do not all bring dogs with us. perhaps it should be dog owners only."

"We have just come back after spending an enjoyable time at Kingscote. The house was lovely and snuggly with the heating on for when we arrived, on a damp and foggy evening. There was a lovely cake and Milk awaiting us so we could have something to nibble on and refresh ourselves after our long trip southwards. The house was nicely decorated and felt homely. The beds comfortable and the showers nice and powerful. The only thing we could find to improve on were the floorboards as they all seemed creaky and quite loud when people were walking around in the night. The ground floor toilet had a very spongey floor board as well, which when you first go in you think you are about to fall through, but it did seem strong enough. We loved the house and hope to re-visit one day"

"A lovely town with picture postcard views, easy to get to Portsmouth and Chichester by bus or car. Down side is if you have two cars like we did with 6 adults the car park behind the house only allow parking for 4 hours during the day. 4 days we all used the bus service (bus passes) and the long term car park the other side of town which is cheap enough per day but you have to put a new ticket on daily before 8am every day. Cottage good for families with a nice large main bedroom but the two other bedrooms are a bit small for 6 adults. Kitchen, Lounge and dining room are a descent size. Beware though of the trip hazard into the kitchen area with a slight rise onto the kitchen floor tiles."

"Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome pack filled with delicious local goodies which was very much appreciated. The accommodation was spotlessly clean , spacious and very bright and airy.The railway carriages were very cleverly adapted. As a party including 6 adults, a 7 month old baby and 2 small dogs we were relieved to find plenty of seating and a large dining table which we could all sit around together. The beds were very , very comfortable. The walk from the accommodation to the Lifeboat station was really beautiful and quite manageable even with a baby in a buggy . The accommodation was fantastically situated for exploring Portsmouth, Southsea, and Chichester."
