We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in the deckhouse. The bunk beds were a huge hit, it was lovely and cosy and warm and I appreciated the coffee greatly! The harbour cafe was gorgeous, super friendly and the location was perfect for getting to Chichester and Portsmouth. Will definitely be booking again. Thanks Pippa.

We had a lovely stay at Pippa's deckhouse. It is a unique location in a lovely yacht club. The place is more spacious then you would expect and very comfortable with everything you would need. Especially good fun for kids with bunk beds and lots of toys. Would definitely plan to come back!

Lovely two nights here. Brilliant location with great walks from the house. Our boys loved staying in a house on stilts, the triple bunks and of course the Bopits (sorry - we beat a top score!). We would love to come back.
