Updated: 31-Jul-2016
Bijou cottages in vibrant city centre close to shops and bars and stones throw from the Seafront

However they have been lavishly updated and decorated with oodles of designer flair and character, giving them all the wow factor of a Boutique hotel but with the exclusivity of a private home. Decked out with the latest technology, including wi-fi, HD TV, surround sound and ipod-docks, everything has been done to a high standard including the interior design, which is unique and quirky- making these boutique holiday homes a truly memorable place to stay.

From the Owner

We particularly loved doing up these two cottages, situated in the best part of Brighton for night life or moseying around the city's boutique shops and cafes. And of course there's the sea and the cottages are a mere stone throw from the beach front bars and The pier. We like to design properties that offer people an individual experience and make your holiday feel that little bit extra special. We think Brighton is a wonderful, vibrant, fun and creative city and a great place for a fabulous weekend. We've tried to represent this unique quality that Brighton has to offer in our interior designs
