The space

.....To get you in the seaside mood I offer a quiet beach themed double room, on the ground floor of an Edwardian building very close to Brighton seafront.

My aim is to provide all my guests with a clean, comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay in a fantastic location, to use as a base to explore wonderful and exciting Brighton.

A continental breakfast of croissants, yoghurt, cereals, toast, orange juice and tea and coffee is included in the price of your room. There are tea and coffee making facilities and a toaster within your room.

In the room there is a flat screen digital TV, free fast broadband Wifi connection and a fridge.
This room is a good size so it can accommodate up to 2 people comfortably, also there is a wardrobe so there is more than enough storage space. As you can see from the photos there is a dining table where you will be able to sit and enjoy your continental breakfast.

Next to the room there is a clean and contemporary bathroom with a shower.

All towels and bed linen are provided, should you require them there are laundry facilities and use of an iron and ironing board.

The apartment is located on a very quiet, friendly street just 10 minutes bus ride from Brighton station. Take the number 27 bus (approx £2) towards Saltdean from Brighton Station, bus stop A. Get off the bus at the Burlington street bus stop on the seafront at the bottom of my street (Burlington street)
The beach is only 2 minutes walk away.

The city centre and the popular Lanes area are only 15 minutes walk. Here you can find the cosmopolitan cafe culture or browse the quirky and colourful independent shops and boutiques that make Brighton famous.

This area is also where you can find Brighton`s best known landmark, The Royal Pavilion, here you can also find many theatres, bars, restaurants and other places of interest to visit.

Brighton`s world famous Pier is 10 minutes walk along the seafront, here you can enjoy roller coaster rides and all the fun of the fair.

If you go in the other direction along the seafront, about 20 minutes walk or 5 a minute bus ride you can find Brighton Marina. This is a great place to visit as here there is a lot to do and see. Why not take a drink in one of the bars and restaurants on the board walk overlooking the harbour and yachts? There is also a Casino, a Cinema and a Ten Pin Bowling and Kiddies Games Complex. Every Sunday morning there is a car boot sale, so there is definitely something for everybody.

I look forward to welcoming you to Brighton, Gary

Guest access

.... My guests will have full access to their room and to the bathroom at all times.
Guests will have access to the kitchen and lounge areas in the mornings and early evenings.

Interaction with guests

.... I will be very happy to interact with my guests as much as they would wish to. Guests are very welcome to socialise with me in the lounge area in the mornings/ evenings, be it for a cup of tea, glass of wine or just to chat and pass the time of day. It will of course be fine if guests would prefer to keep to themselves.

I will be present sometimes during my guest's stay, so I will be happy to help with any enquiries or suggest places of interest to visit.

The neighbourhood

....I love living in the Kemptown area of Brighton as it has a village feeling. There are many coffee shops, traditional English Pubs (where you can enjoy a lovely Sunday Roast Dinner), restaurants, antique and other independent shops. It`s only a 2 minute walk to the beach and the city centre is just 15 minutes walk away.

Getting around

If you arrive at Gatwick airport, it is easiest to take the train to Brighton Train Station (journey time approx 35 mins).

There is an excellent bus service in the Brighton area.

If you arrive by train, take the number 27 bus from Brighton Train station (bus stop A) in the direction of Saltdean, about a 10 minute journey, approx £2.00. Get off the bus at Burlington street bus stop, near to my street (Burlington street), then it is just 2 minutes walk to my apartment. Also from this bus stop you can take buses to all parts of the city and beyond.

If you arrive by car.

For parking please see the map on my listing on Airbnb.

Parking near my place is very easy. The parking is on street by pay and display ( on present rates approximately £5.60 per 24 hours ).
The best place to park is on Marine Parade, (the seafront road) to the right of the end of my street (Burlington Street).

The parking restrictions run from 9am to 8pm, outside these times the parking is free.
Park on the seafront side (right hand side) of Marine Parade as there is no maximum stay. It is best to follow the instructions on the white parking signs and pay by phone. Then if you wish to add more time it's possible to do this remotely by telephone so you would not have to return to your car.

If you arrive by coach to Pool Valley coach station, walk to North Street Bus stop C and take the number 27 bus towards Saltdean. There is a bus stop ( Burlington Street Bus Stop) on the seafront near to my street, (Burlington street). Then walk up Burlington street to my apartment, about 2 mins walk.

The nearest airport is Gatwick easily reached by regular trains (approx 30 mins journey time.

Whilst you are enjoying your stay in Brighton why not plan a trip to London? It is only a 50 minute train ride from Brighton Station.

Gary is a great host and very welcoming. The room was perfect for our needs and fully stocked for breakfast including some great fresh bread from the local bakery. Gary knows the area well and was most helpful pointing out places to go during your stay. You do share a bathroom so if you are not happy with this then perhaps this room isn't for you. However, the place was spotless and the bathroom could not be faulted in the cleanliness department. We fully intend to stay here again if he is not already booked up (his place is very popular)

The room was perfect, with all the necessities in place. It was very clean and check in was efficient. Gary is very friendly and offered to show us the places of interest. Not to mention the lovely breakfast spread that Gary kindly arranged, which definitely made our stay there an enjoyable one.

We stayed at Gary's apartment for 3 nights and it was absolutely perfect! Everything is exactly as shown in the pictures...the room was clean, quiet & comfortable with everything we needed. Gary is so friendly and considerate, he’s thought of everything to make his guests feel at home. We especially appreciated waking up in the morning at our leisure and enjoying the continental style breakfast in our room which Gary provided, what a nice touch. It was the ideal base for exploring Brighton, the area is full of cafes, bars and restaurants and a stone’s throw from the beach front or short walk into the centre. Highly recommended.

Gary's place was great. It is on a quiet street near the beach, but once you walk to the end of the block you are on a street full of restaurants and shops which leads you right into the center of town. The room was nice and neat in arrival and Gary went above and beyond by providing fresh croissants and bread as well as cereal milk and yogurt in your own mini fridge for breakfast the following day. Overall it was a great experience and would definitely recommend Gary to anyone staying in the Brighton area.
