“We'd Be Proud to Own It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This is the nicest rental property of our long travel history. It is a tastefully-decorated mostly white light and airy welcoming lower-ground floor Victorian conversion including a private patio with a Weber barbecue and a relaxing seating area set in an abundantly landscaped garden. Inside there is a beautifully-fitted kitchen equipped with everything you could need. The bedroom is large, light and comfy with two large wardrobes in addition to dresser drawers. The respectful owners have thought of everything down to the glassware, pottery and lovely curtains that make each room feel like home. And they were always available to answer questions and offer suggestions.

Parking is on the street but we never had to walk more than a few metres. However car not necessary as you can get everywhere in Brighton by buses which are frequent, and several bus stops are within a few minutes' walk of the flat.

“A fantastic garden flat, immaculately presented and warm and friendly owner.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My daughter and I spent a wonderful 3 days in this garden flat. It was very spacious, beautifully decorated and had everything you could possibly need for a truly comfortable and effortless stay.
Bruce was very welcoming and friendly and we immediately felt at home there. We really didn't want to leave but now we have discovered this little gem we will return for future stays in Brighton.
Many thanks Bruce and Julie.

“Beautiful flat in a lovely location, away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip but still central!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Bruce was extremely accommodating to our short notice requests which was refreshing! Flat is beautifully presented, surprisingly spacious and has a lovely small but perfectly formed garden! Situated 10 mins by car/bus from Brighton Pier and only a 5 min walk from Preston Park, the location is ideal, giving you the feel of Brighton but away from the craziness of the city centre! We would definitely recommend this rental for a getaway and we hope to visit again!

“A perfect Holiday Retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Staying for two nights in Brighton to meet up with family I found the perfect apartment. Booking was so easy and the owners done everything to accommodate me. The apartment was more than I expected after a long day sightseeing in Brighton it was the perfect place to come back to so clean, spacious and elegant . Myself and my family could not have asked for more and will be returning. Thank you guys for helping us have a great weekend.

“Practically perfect near Preston Park”

person found this review helpful

We were looking for a base for a two-week stay in Brighton and frankly we couldn't have made a better choice. The flat is lovely - fresh looking, clean and warm, with everything you could need. It was such a pleasure to stay there. The location is good - very handy for buses into the city centre and with Preston Park just one street away. Best of all, the owners, Julie and Bruce were so friendly and helpful. We would recommend it without hesitation and can't wait to return.
