A rare gem, super central 2 bedroom maisonette in the heart of Brighton's south lanes. Featuring a large open plan lounge/dining room with a private patio and large balcony overlooking one of Brighton's most popular pedestrianised lane. All perfectly located for visiting and exploring the wonderful city of Brighton and just a two minute walk to the beach.

The space

This is our own holiday home, which we open up to fellow travellers when we can't stay ourselves - we love this place and have spent many happy years enjoying the sights & sounds of central Brighton. The lounge is large bright and open plan - leading onto a large, south facing balcony that overlooks the pedestrianised street below that's filled with shops, cafes, and more. Watch the world go by from this fabulous position or get out and explore, perfectly located for the best shops, restaurants, the beach, clubs, cinemas, cafes, galleries and more. A secure parking space is also available, a rare find in such a great and central location for this fantastic city.

The apartment is arranged over two floors with the large open plan lounge, dining room and separate kitchen downstairs with two good sized, double bedrooms and a fully equipped bathroom upstairs. Both bedrooms have super comfy king size beds, plenty of storage and fresh clean towels & linen.

Whilst the apartment is slap bang in the centre of the South Lanes - it sits in an elevated position above the lane and behind secure doors, so whilst the Lanes are always busy - the flat offers a lovely refuge away from the hustle and bustle of the street below. There's no nicer way to spend the evening sitting out on the balcony enjoying a sundowner and listening to the sounds of all the folks milling in the streets below.

Sleeps up to 6.

Guest access

You'll have full access to the entire apartment. You can come and go when you please and you'll have your own key to the apartment throughout your stay.

There is a comfortable sofa bed in the lounge if you need to sleep more than 4 people. There is an additional charge of £10 per night for the use of the sofa bed. Please let us know if you wish to use the sofa bed when booking and we will send you a special offer.

Check in is after 3pm and check out is before 11am. Please let us know when you're booking if you would like different times to these and we will accommodate you as much as possible.

We usually require a minimum booking of three nights but if you see two free nights between other bookings please just ask and we will try to accommodate you.

Interaction with guests

Wherever possible Ev or Rob will meet you in person to firstly help you find the flat and then to show you around the property - offer any advice on places to visit, eat or shop. We're on hand if you have any questions and will do our upmost to help however we can. On the rare occasion where we're away or can't meet you in person, we'll always ensure that someone who knows the ropes fully is on hand to introduce you to the flat and show you around.

Other things to note

The property is located up two short flights of stairs behind the outside of the property and behind a set of security doors - so please note that it is not easily accessed by anyone who requires wheelchair access or who has mobility issues. Prams and buggies can be easily carried up the stairs.

Parking is tricky in the Lanes as much of it is pedestrianised however there are plenty of car parks nearby and it is also possible to park just outside of the city parking zone and get a bus, train or taxi in to the apartment.

Guests who come by public transport will find the flat is only a short 10 minute walk from the station.

We have a 37' flat screen TV in the lounge connected to an Amazon Firestick which allows you to stream content from our Netflix, Amazon Prime accounts and play some games. The TV is not connected to an aerial, so it does not play live broadcast TV.

The apartment has fast (not fibre) broadband, which you are welcome to use during your stay.

Note: The freezer in the kitchen is currently not working.

We enjoyed our stay in Brighton. The flat was in the middle of everything, it was clean and good sized for us five people. Parking was a bit tricky but the host give us very good advice and tips for it. Especially our teens were thrilled about the shopping possibilities just outside of the flat. We all had wonderful time on the beach and the Pier.

Thank you for your lovely review Merja. We're pleased you found the flat clean and good size for the five of you. Yes parking is a bit tricky, it's central Brighton, and England! but we're pleased our suggestions helped you sort something out. Brighton is fun for the beach, shopping and the Pier. Thanks again. Best wishes

Great location and good communication between host/agent. A bit of street noise and seagulls but to be expected with such a nice location.

Great location at the centre of the trendy 'old town' of Brighton. Lots of boutiques and restaurants nearby. Only a minutes walk from the beach and the pier. During Fridays and Saturdays, some music from nearby pub and/or street players carried to the flat. But the music always stopped at 11 pm when the pub closed. The owners are very friendly and all communication was swift and accurate. The flat has a nice second-floor balcony facing the street. The flat easily accommodates five persons. The flat is also equipped with a cable-TV (Amazon, Netflix, etc.). Everything is practical and clean although signs of normal 'wear and tear' are noticeable here and there. Definitely recommendable for both families with children as well as groups of adults. We really enjoined our stay in Brighton!

I really can't fault this apartment! If you want somewhere that is dead central to the pier, night life and quaint & quirky shops then this is definitely the place for you!! The pictures do not do this space justice, as it is far bigger than expected!

Ev & Rob User Profile

Rob and I have been living together in Brighton for quite a few years. When we moved in together we kept Rob's flat in central Brighton. Recently - about two years ago we decided to share the joy and pleasure of the flat to people visiting Brighton. Rob works freelance in web design and I am a chocolate artist/architect. We have a family home in west Hove and two adult children who have now flown the nest. We love the sharing economy and find Airbnb allows people to enjoy visiting other places in the comfort and convenience in other people's homes. We certainly do enjoy it and much prefer it to staying in a hotel.
We love travelling and early last year we bought a motorhome and enjoy touring Europe in it. We love foods from all places, and enjoy movies and reading. We're easy going and friendly and love meeting new people and exploring new places.
