We are Amanda & Russell & live in Herfordshire but love our trips to our Brighton home as its like London by the sea - culture, entertainment, festivals & events. Its so convenient to get there for a weekend or longer.

RUSSELL AND AMANDA purchased this apartment in 2012

Why RUSSELL AND AMANDA chose East Sussex

We love Brighton for the interesting people, restaurants, activities & places to visit. We found this property after searching a long time & fell in love with its charm & cosy feel. We have spent time & effort renovating it but have retained the original character. There are lots of Brighton cultural events but its lovely just to stroll on the beach. It true what they say - its like London by the sea!

What makes this apartment unique

We love the character of our home from home & believe you will too. Its an 1850's painted Victorian house on a well respected street in Kemptown. Its furnished with a mix of furniture & fittings of various eras found locally in Brighton. Our front door is seaside blue, our shutters are yellow & our kitchen is pink! We are just around the corner from the independent & interesting shops, restaurants & bars of George street, a short walk to St James Street & close to the sea front! We have a lovely private south facing decked area from our kitchen - great for al fresco dining! We have a lovely romantic master bedroom with a four poster bed & a large bathroom with wonderful marble & chrome vanity units from the Waldorf Hotel London.

Brighton has superb rail links from London & a very efficient bus service around the city & beyond.

Fantastic property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property in the heart of Kemptown, an easy walk into Brighton centre with lots of lovely shops and cafe's on route. The property itself was clean, bright and really well furnished on a nice quiet street. We will definitely be back next year.

Perfect location, perfect acommodation

  • 5 of 5

This holiday apartment exceeded expectations in terms of quality of facilities, location and overall appeal. It really was a blend of home from home and seaside cool. Would highly recommend for its location, high standard of cleanliness and presentation, a quiet haven to retreat to after a busy day in the town. It even has a private patio at the back for that early evening sundowner,.

Charmantes Appartement in ruhiger u zentraler Lage

  • 5 of 5

Für unseren Familienurlaub in Brighton waren wir auf der Suche nach einer charmanten Unterkunft, die genug Platz für 4 Personen bietet, einigermaßen ruhig liegt, dennoch alles wichtige um die Ecke zu erreichen ist, das Zentrum sollte idealerweise fußläufig zu erreichen sein und natürlich sollte auch der Strand direkt vor der Haustüre liegen. Uns war natürlich klar, dass das wohl kaum zu finden sein würde, aber plötzlich entdeckten wir dieses tolle Appartement und waren sofort begeistert.

Wie sich vor Ort heraus stellte, wurden unsere Erwartungen voll und ganz erfüllt! Das Appartement war „in Echt“ sogar noch reizender als auf den Fotos. Es liegt in einer ruhigen Sackgasse nur ca. 100 m entfernt von allen wichtigen Dingen, die man im Alltag braucht sowie Restaurants, Cafes, Bars etc. Ins Zentrum von Brighton sind es zu Fuß etwa 10-15 Minuten. Super schnell erreicht man vom Appartement nicht nur die Promenade, sondern ist auch direkt am Aufzug (bzw. Treppen), über die man hinunter zum Strand gelangt. Perfekter hätten wir es uns nicht wünschen können!

Ausgestattet ist das Appartement mit allem, was man für den täglichen Bedarf benötigt. Eine kuschelige Decke und ein weiteres Geschirrhandtuck wären möglicherweise noch nette Extras gewesen. Sicherlich hätten die Vermieter uns auf Nachfrage weiter geholfen, denn auch wenn wir die beiden leider nicht persönlich kennengelernt haben, war doch der gesamte Ablauf freundlich, professionell und hat reibungslos funktioniert. Sowohl per Email, als auch telefonisch und per SMS konnten wir immer jemanden erreichen. Bei „Extra-Wünschen“ (wir mussten Ende Mai noch heizen, da es eine wirklich furchtbar kalte Woche war) erhielten wir sofort Unterstützung.

Unser Fazit: Bei unserem nächsten Brighton-Aufenthalt müssen wir keine Unterkunft mehr suchen, wir wissen, was wir gerne buchen möchten. Wir können dieses Appartement daher nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen.

Très jolie maison dans quartier sympa

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine a Brigthon, en famille, dans cette maison qui est un vrai cocon. Meublée et décorée avec goût nous nous sommes sentis très à l'aise dans cette maison. Amanda nous avait laissé des infos sur les restos et autres de Brigthon et nous avons beaucoup aimé cette ville avec ses quartiers typiques anglais, et tous ses charmes. Vacances réussies ! 😀👍

Tres jolie maison dans quartier très sympa

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé en famille une semaine a Brigthon, la maison est un vrai cocon, meublée et décorée avec goût, nous nous sommes tout de suite sentis très à l aise dans cette maison. Amanda nous avait laissé de nombreux conseils pour les restos et autres sorties, brigthon est une ville très sympa avec des quartiers typiquement anglais, à 1heure de Londres en train. C était ma première location de particulier à particulier et malgré mes réticences, je ne regrette pas.
