About RUSSELL AND AMANDA
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 Kemptown
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.

Beautiful apartment in a great location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The location is perfect, with the beach just a few minutes walk away, the property is on a quiet cul-de-sac with all that Kemptown has to offer on the doorstep. While slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of Brighton, the Pier, the Lanes and the main attractions are all within walking distance.
The apartment itself is comfortable, clean, characterful, and well equipped. We especially enjoyed the secluded back terrace for our morning coffees!
Beautiful and just perfect
Perfect location! Visited Brighton many times over the years. We’ve now found our forever Brighton holiday home! Perfect home with all amenities. So tastefully decorated with lovely character. Spotlessly clean. Thankyou for helping to make our daughters 14th Birthday one she will remember.
Thats great news! Thank you for the lovely review & look forward to welcoming you back for lots of holiday birthdays!
Excellent 3 days.
We had a great stay. Loved the house, and it's location was perfect in the heart of Kemptown with all its boutique coffee shops, bars and shops. Also close to beach and very easy to get around on the public bike system. Parking could be an issue for some, but compared to many cities it is cheap to park in local public carparks or about 10 mins walk away.
The house was great. Cosy and cool, very comfortable beds and nice little touches that made it feel very home from home. I liked the fact that the owners leave condiments, tea and coffee etc as well as a welcome present!
Would definitely go there again - highly recommended.
Pleased you had a great stay, thank you for your review - we love the area too and look forward to your return!
Nice flat in a quiet road near to beach.
Liked the flat which was well equipped, clean and in a quiet road not far from the sea and my children who live in Brighton. Would definitely do again.
Thats great - we would love to see you return!
Cute flat with a lot going for it in hip, funky Kemptown
We spent 2 weeks in the flat. Kemptown is a great part of Brighton, easy in and out access to other parts of Sussex and the coolest people, shops, and restaurants you could hope to find. The flat is well fitted out including the birds singing like crazy. Lots of thoughtful touches, a dishwasher, kettle, hairdryer etc. The furnishings are eclectic and fun and overall it was quiet for being near a college. Here are a few things to note: the internet was spotty and my husband was trying to work so it got a bit frustrating, overall we were able to connect 90% of the time. The street is a dead end with no turn around so you have to back up or down if you bring a car into it. Parking on the street is rare (more so in the evening) but we managed to find it within a 3 or 4 block radius so it wasn't awful. The washing machine worked well but the built in dryer didn't dry the clothes, treat it like there isn't a dryer in the unit and you won't be disappointed. We really enjoyed the place and would return. Don't miss eating at the Curry Leaf which is a mile down the main road, best Indian food in Brighton in my opinion.
Thank you for the great review and apologies for the dryer issue. Our following Guest has now informed us of this and the engineer is booked to fix it. In response to your BT Infinity wifi comment we are upgrading our router to avoid any further problems. Very pleased you would like to return, we'd love to welcome you back!

This is the fourth time I am doing this review (because every time I try my computer has thrown me out) and this is why it is so late. We stayed in this wonderfully designed house last May for a week. It was clean and comfortable. The owners have taken great care and you can see they love it. It is located in the heart of Kemp town village. If you want to experience real Brighton stay here!
Thank you for your review Ramola we really appreciate your perseverance posting it! Hope to see you again in the near future. Best wishes Amanda & Russell.
Brighton has numerous festivals & events but Kemptown has a village atmosphere with friendly local individual cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs, shops & markets selling books, artisan food, vintage clothing, antiques, everything you could need!
The sea is only a few minutes walk away with beach volley ball courts, cafe or the famous pier! Within a short walk you will find the the eclectic vibrant life of St James Street. All just around the corner from our lovely Home from Home.
