To get you in the seaside mood I offer a quiet beach themed room, on the ground floor of an Edwardian building very close to Brighton seafront.
My aim is to provide all my guests with a clean, comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay in a fantastic location, to use as a base to explore wonderful and exciting Brighton.

In the room there is a flat screen digital TV, free fast broadband Wifi connection and a fridge.
This room is a good size so it can accommodate up to 2 people comfortably, also there is a wardrobe so there is more than enough storage space. As you can see from the photos there is a dining table where you will be able to sit and enjoy your continental breakfast.
Next to the room there is a clean and contemporary bathroom with a shower.
All towels and bed linen are provided, should you require them there are laundry facilities and use of an iron and ironing board.
The apartment is located on a very quiet, friendly street just 10 minutes bus ride from Brighton station. Take the number 27 bus towards Saltdean from Brighton Station (approx £2), the bus stop (Burlington street) is on the seafront opposite my road. The beach is only 2 minutes walk away.
The city centre and the popular Lanes area are only 15 minutes walk. Here you can find the cosmopolitan cafe culture or browse the quirky and colourful independent shops and boutiques that make Brighton famous.
This area is also where you can find Brighton`s best known landmark, The Royal Pavilion, here you can also find many theatres, bars, restaurants and other places of interest to visit.
Brighton`s world famous Pier is 10 minutes walk along the seafront, here you can enjoy roller coaster rides and all the fun of the fair.
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.
I look forward to welcoming you to Brighton, Gary

Lovely comfortable room with everything you would need in a great location. Gary was very helpful & I appreciated the breakfast on my room as had an early start. Especially the local bread! Would thoroughly recommend!
We enjoyed our stay with Gary. He is a very friendly, hospitable person who maintains a very clean and comfortable B & B, close to the main attractions of Brighton. Gary also gave us good advice on such things as parking, things to do in the short amount of time we were there and restaurants and pubs nearby. We loved the fresh flowers in our room! Highly recommended.
I was for one night in the house of Gary and he has been a prefect host. He is a very gentle person and his place is as good, quite and nice as it is showed and described on his airbnb page. Perfect to be some days in Brighton.
I recommend very much staying at Gary's house. Thank you Gary.
Gary was a great host, everything was perfectly organized. He even helped us with the parking situation. Great breakfast included. Good spot closed to Marina side of Brighton. Thanks a lot.
Gerry is a very nice man and was very helpfull with everything, parking our car, explaining where everything was in Brighton. He made us feel very welcome and even had breakfast ready for us. The room is very tidy and clean. We only stayed there for one night but we highly recommend Gary and his place.
L'accueil a été agréable.
Gary nous a détaillé ce que nous pouvions faire ou non dans son appartement.
Il nous a dit que nous avions accès à la cuisine jusque 21h mais je n'y suis jamais allée car j'avais l'impression qu'il ne tenait pas à nous y voir passer. C'est juste mon ressenti.
La chambre est plus petite qu'elle semble sur les photos mais correcte.
Le petit dejeuner est prêt dans la chambre à l'arrivée et chaque soir Gary demande ce qu'il nous manque pour le lendemain.
Seuls bémols dans la salle de bains commune : de la rouille sur le porte serviettes et une serviette sentant l'humidité qui reste dessus en permanence, un ménage qui pourrait être plus précis (lavabo notamment).
Tout s'est bien passé dans l'ensemble.
After being so kind and welcoming to Aline and her son Hugo, I am very surprised and upset that Aline has been so unkind to me in her review.
I did invite Aline to use my kitchen and it`s facilities but maybe this got lost in translation.
It seems to me that Aline does not really understand the concept of Airbnb.
From my many other reviews, it can be seen that the greater majority of my guests have been more than happy with the level of accommodation that I provide.
Aline, obviously set her expectations far higher, than the price she expected for a 3 day stay in Brighton.
Nous avons passés un agréable séjour à Brighton. Le studio de Gary était bien placé (15/20 min à pied du centre ville), propre, pratique et surtout conforme aux photos postées sur le site.
Gary à été un hôte très attentionné, prévenant et discret.
Nous le recommendons fortement, c'est un super rapport qualité prix !
