Interaction with Guests
We are very friendly, used to an open house with teenagers. But we work in the arts and know how to leave people alone when they are tired after work. Sometimes music happens. You are welcome to cook for yourselves as long as you clear up ! We may ask you to feed the cats if we are home late. We speak bad French enthusiastically, we are learning Brazllian Portugese but can't speak it yet!
Our area is called 7 dials, one of the best places to live in Brighton. 5 minutes by number 7 bus from both Brighton and Hove Railway stations. 15 minutes walk to beach or town. Quiet safe street , shops, cafe, takaways and lovely park round the corner.
Number 7 bus every 6-10 minutes to city centre, Royal Pavilion, clubs and sea front. Regular buses up to Devils Dyke and South Downs Way. We are half way between Brighton and Hove stations - come to either !
Other Things to Note
We know our way round all of Brighton's cultural life. If it's on we can find it for you whatever your interests.
There are no rules, we hope our guests will be friendly and enjoy our city as much as we do. We don't mind smokers. Our cats are friendly though we don't make a big thing of them, this place is really not for people who don't like cats or are allergic to their fur.
Je remercie Billy et Pippa pour leur accueil chaleureux et leurs conseils et explications sur Brighton!
Les plus de cette maison sont le salon convivial et la localisation (marche agréable jusqu'à la mer ou le centre ville + bus 7 très pratique et proche).
Je recommanderai ce airbnb à mes amis :)
We had a lovely time there. Pippa and her husband make us feel like home! The house is really well situated and Pippa gave us some advices on what to do in Brighton. The room is comfortable and we were free to come and go as we want! I definitively recommend those hosts for a very pleasant stay! And we will be back at Pippa's certainly :)
This was my second stay with Pippa and Bill. Somebody I met during my stay asked me where I was staying, and I found myself saying "I'm staying with friends" because that's just how it feels!
Lovely cosy room, and a really warm welcome from Pippa and the cats. Highly recommended - I'll definitely be returning.
Bill, Pippa and Max are kind, hospitable and friendly. I enjoyed our talks. They gave me useful advices concerning my holiday. The room is tidy and comfortable. The kitchen is spacious and convenient. The region is quiet and beautiful. The hosts are very good. Highly recommended.
Pippa has a lovely home! We arrived in Enlgand and took the train down to Brighton in the early afternoon and although she was at work, she arranged to take her lunch at that time so she could come and meet us and show us in. She welcomed us with some tea and biscuits in a truly English fashion. My girlfriend and I are moving to Brighton and were spending some time here to go flat hunting in the city. Pippa gave us the rundown of all the best places in the city to look. She even offered to take us furniture shopping if we were unable to find a furnished flat, as we were unable to bring our own furnishings with us.
With her help we felt incredibly welcomed in Brighton and were able to find a place to live within just a few days. Pippa and Billy are the epitome of hospitality and generosity and their home is a shining example of British charm. Thanks for everything!
Pippa was a wonderful host, who made me feel very welcome for my first time using Airbnb. The whole family is warm and kind, and they went beyond the call of duty to make my stay go well.
The room is spacious and clean, and the house is in a great location, near to both the station and the sea. I'd recommend this for anyone who appreciates a friendly environment with a personal touch.
