Great apartment & location, really helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a nice quiet part of Brighton, but only 10-15 minutes walk from the pier and just round the corner from a bus stop with regular service. There is also a good selection of shops and cafes round the corner from the flat if you need to pop out for supplies.

The flat was well kitted out with lots of nice touches, including provision of essentials like toilet rolls, milk, tea bags etc. There was also loads of books, DVDs and games if you needed entertainment on a wet afternoon (which we were lucky to avoid during our stay!). The rooms are spacious and there was plenty of space for the four of us. The apartment owners were also really helpful - they were happy to recommend eating places and things to do before we arrived, and were easy to deal with while we were staying in the apartment. Highly recommended.

A lovely apartment in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay in this very well appointed apartment in an excellent location, very conveniently near the sea and with very good facilities in the area, where we had a great choice of places to eat out, but also good shops where we could buy groceries etc for self catering. The flat is very comfortable and well equipped, very clean, and the hosts really welcoming. We stayed here while house hunting with our son, and will certainly stay again when we visit him after he moves to live in Brighton. Thank you so much for making our stay so relaxing and enjoyable.

nicely located and good equipped appartment

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this appartment, because it has good beds in two bedrooms and has everything in it and is well situated near the seaside, in a lively and at the same time quiet neighbourhood, not to far from city centre.

Good and flexible service by the owner, maps, books and DVD's available!

A fantastic flat in a near perfect location. Clean, well equipped, maintained.

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic flat. Comfortable and clean. Has a cooker (hob & oven), microwave, kettle, toaster, plates, etc but given the location your unlikely to want to cook your own food. Within only a few yards of the front door there are a good selection of eateries. Mike (the owner) met us on are arrival and gave us a tour of the property and was helpful with advice for appropriate places to visit (we are a family of 3, including a 6 year old).

There's a TV with a DVD player, digital TV box (although the reception is poor so lacks channels), a Chrome card in the TV so you can steam from your mobile / tablet / etc direct to the TV makes up for the lack of TV reception, WIFI - which was fast and reliable.

The location is about a 5 minute walk to the Pier / Brighton Lanes but between the property and the Pier / Lanes there are huge selection of independent coffee shops. If you do wish to cook for yourself there is a Co-Op only 1 minute walk away.

We were in Brighton to run the marathon and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect location. If you booking for this accommodation for Brighton marathon 2018 I'd definitely book it. It's 3.3 miles from the Elite start and about 2.3 from the general start. BUT it's only about 1/2 mile from the finish.

We felt very welcomed by Mike and he did make contact at the end of our stay to ensue everything was okay (there are mobile numbers in the property if you have any problems).

I wouldn't hesitate in staying here again or recommending this property to anyone visiting Brighton. Hope others find this review useful.

I feel very lucky to have found this property. Thank you.

Kemptown Village is a vibrant centre with a wide range of independent shops, restaurants, bars and pubs. There are some quirky vintage and antique shops as well as more practical ones such as a local co-op for groceries, a greengrocer, butcher, chemist and post office.

St James' Street is a 10 minute walk away, and the Lanes and North Laine a 20 minute walk away or a short bus ride - the 1, 1A and 7 from the top of the road will take you into town or to the railway station.

Going down to the beach, the Yellow Wave Beach Volleyball centre, the Peter Pan Playground and Adventure Golf are directly in front. Off to the left, the Marina is a 30 minute walk or short bus ride on the 7. To the right, the Pier is 10 minutes away.

Our favourite coffee shops include Spinelli (which is just next door), the Egg and Spoon, Compass Point, Artisan Deli, Ground, and Delicia, which does excellent Portuguese tarts as well as lovely sandwiches and baguettes. All are within 5 minutes walk.

Pubs nearby are the Thomas Kemp, The Ginger Dog, the Golden Cannon, the Barley Mow, the Bristol Bar and the Hand in Hand. Something for everyone - from a traditional boozer through craft beer specialists to gastropubs.

Restaurants include the Old Bank, which does excellent steak and ribs, 24 St George's and Kemp Town Spice.

Takeaway includes Pizzaface, the Kemp Tandoori and a local kebab shop, Friars. You won't be short of somewhere to eat and St James' has more restaurants. If you are veggie, we recommend Planet India, which is very Brighton.
