Double bedroom available to rent by the night in my bright and cosy basement flat.
The flat comprises of 2 double bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and lounge.
Guests will have a key and will able to come and go as they please. There is a shared bathroom in the flat. As I work from home, the lounge is for my use but you won't miss it as the guest bedroom has its own tv, sofa, kettle, table, wifi etc. You are also welcome to use the kitchen during your stay. Just let me know.
You are also more than welcome to use the washing machine.
Parking....DON'T! It's a nightmare in Brighton. If you have to drive, there is a cheap parking lot 15 minutes walk from mine on NORTON ST, HOVE. Apart from that it is paying the ridiculously expensive meters outside my house. I very rarely have a visitors voucher that you could have for £5 a day but as I can only buy a small number each year from the rotters at the council these are usually not available.
I have a miniature Schnauzer named Hudson who is from a dog rescue home. He is lovely but very scared of new people so he will be generally keeping a low profile during your stay! He has his own kennel and bed and never sleeps on the beds or sofas. Hudson is the other reason why I am not able to offer use of the lounge when I am staying in the flat also.
There is a lovely park in the square right outside the front door and the beach is three minutes' walk from the beach, and ten minutes' walk from the main railway station and central Brighton. It's also just five minutes in the opposite direction to a supermarket, fish-and-chips restaurants, antique shops, galleries, clubs, and a million pubs - so, despite it being so cozy, the moment you open the door, you are in the heart of it all!
If I am home I am happy to help you plan your visit to Brighton and tell you about local sites and restaurant etc. I am also just at the end of a phone if I'm not home and you need anything.
Beyond that I am also conscious to give guests complete privacy. You know where I am if you need me!
I do my best to make guests relaxed and feel welcomed.
I will be usually be staying in the flat (although am often out) during guests' stays or, very occasionally there may be another guest staying.Please don't be put off by my 65% acceptance rate!!! I am usually always able to accept guest. The acceptance rate just reflects the times that I offer guests the other room from the one they enquired about.
Brighton is a cosmopolitan, artistic, musical and dynamic city, with a fabulous mix of culture, history, seaside kitsch, bohemian open-mindedness and continental café culture.
Because it's such a fabulous place to live and to visit it means we are densely packed...like beans in a can! So, the street can be full at times, and the noises from homes around us can heard. Brightonians, like Londoners and anyone from a busy city are used to it. I'm very lucky, people always comment that they slept well and found the room peaceful and quiet but for those rare occasions/light sleepers there are ear plugs in the room!
It's the perfect base for exploring the south coast, London, and the south of England generally, and it is only twenty minutes from Gatwick, which is very handy for trips to France and the rest of Europe.
My neighbourhood is great. Right near the beach and the city centre but still quiet.
Buses to everywhere are 1 minute from my door, taxis whizz up and down the main rd near me so are always on hand-I can also ring one for you and walking is great as I'm only 10 minutes from most things!
Wifi is BrightBox-4qqdb2, Password is south-let-dark
The shower has instant hot water and loads of towels in the bathroom for you to use.
Please don't smoke in my flat and do clean up after yourself.
Oh, and please PLEASE don't get drunk and bring someone(s) home with you.
Other than that have a great time!!
Maxines place was really well located, just a short skip to the beach. We never got to meet Maxine, but the checkout and checkin was easy and organised.
I had a very comfortable night and Maxine was very easy-going about my coming back late at night as well and 'check in' timings. Thanks Maxine!
Although we didn't actually meet because we were late arriving and early leaving. Everything was really well organised and very comfortable. I would recommend.
The host was really nice. She looked after us well and responded to our texts attentively. We had a good amount of privacy which was really great as well. The room was clean and organized. Bathroom was clean too and towels were provided. Overall my stay was a good experience, big thanks to Maxine!
Maxine's place was exactly as advertised. Quaint, warm and charming. The location of her place was a huge draw for us and should be for anyone going to Brighton/Hove. Literally, you can walk anywhere and everywhere and have such easy access to all the delights of the area. Thank you Maxine.
