If you go in the other direction along the seafront, about 20 minutes walk or 5 minute bus ride you can find Brighton Marina.This is a great place to visit as here there is a lot to do and see. Why not take a drink in one of the bars and restaurants on the board walk overlooking the harbour and yachts? There is also a Casino, a Cinema and a Ten Pin Bowling and Kiddies Games Complex, every Sunday morning there is a car boot sale, so there is definitely something for everybody.

Gary provides a very welcoming room. Comfortable bed and for those who appreciate a good shower - he certainly has a particularly good one of these - good pressure and temperature. Gary provided very good information and directions to local requirements like food and ATMs etc. Breakfast was well provided for with your own in-room breakfast table. Don't forget to organise a parking permit with Gary ahead if you will be in the area during the day - Brighton can be expensive for parking.
Thank you for staying and also many thanks for all your kind words Marion.
Yes, that is great advice regarding the parking in Brighton. As it says on my listing, if you are coming by car, I can arrange parking for you very near to my place. This is with visitor`s parking permits, I can supply these, they are only £5 per full day.
Gary provided a warm welcome and went through everything clearly. The set-up is thoroughly well-thought out; the room has everything you need: TV, fridge, a hairdryer, small table and, for breakfast, even fresh bread every day. The apartment is in a wonderful location near quality pubs and artisan shops, and the beach is moments away. I thoroughly recommend staying with Gary because he is both hospitable and professional. I hope to come back!
Gary was a wonderful host. He made sure we were comfortable at every turn, and even gave us a lift to churchill shopping centre after we already checked out. The flat was located away from the bustle of tourists, but near enough to the seafront and the pier. Perfectly comfortable room for a couple or single traveller looking to enjoy all Brighton has to offer. Look no further.
We had a pleasant one-night stay at Gary's place. The room is clean, comfortable and calm, and we felt at home their straightaway. Gary is super friendly and he gave us a very helpful introduction on our arrival. After that he left us to get on with our pre-arranged plans, which suited us well. The apartment is located in the very cool area of Kemptown, which has loads of cafes, bars and restaurants. Despite there being all of this on the doorstep, once you are in the room it is peaceful. An extra special touch that Gary provides is a continental-style breakfast and tea and coffee, which you can enjoy whenever you like in the room. Overall I would recommend this listing very highly.
The apartment is in a good location very near the seafront and near to the shops and places to eat. Our host Gary is thoughtful and took care to welcome us and make sure we settled in nicely. Lovely experience overall and would definitely recommend!
Gary couldn't have done more to accommodate us. He made sure we were comfortable and had all we needed during our visit. Our living space consisted of the bedroom and bathroom which were both clean, light and attractive. The bedroom was a quiet, relaxing space to hang out in and the bed was very comfortable too. Gary also provided a very tasty breakfast each morning. The flat is very conveniently situated...just minutes away from the beach and there are some great local shops and excellent pubs and Cafes with very friendly service. The area is pretty, and still has an authentic, unspoilt charm which makes it a great place to be beside the sea! We had a really happy stay with Gary who is a very welcoming, kind and attentive host.
