There is ample bedroom, dining room and sitting room space and is comfortably furnished with superbly comfortable kingsize bed and a firm single sofa bed. Also a portable small fold down bed can be provided (fine for a child) or 2 comfortable mattresses on the floor work well as 2 singles or a double bed for both children and adults. Freshly laundered bed linen is provided for all the above beds/sofas. There is a wardrobe with drawers, bedside tables and lamps, comfy large sofa, dining table and chairs, cable TV and Wifi. The room is fully carpeted and a shoe free zone.
This in effect is a self contained bedsit with kitchenette area within the room, comprising of a9 fridge, small oven, microwave, toaster and kettle and an array of crockery and utensils for self catering use.
Fresh bed linen and towels are provided, with a fresh weekly supply if you are a long term guest.
To welcome you I provide tea, coffee, sugar and milk.
The adjacent bathroom has wc, basin, bath and electric shower. It is small, but unclutted and very cosy and wonderful for relaxing baths.
This is a private bathroom for Airbnb guests, in the summer months. At other times access may be required between midday and 6pm. Therefore between 6pm and before 12 midday you have a predominantly private space encompassing the front door, hall and bathroom. Occasionally, when my daughter stays over, wc access may be required during the night. We are very respectful of your privacy and mindful not to disturb you.
Outside there is a covered porch and a secluded area in the front garden that enjoys the morning sun until 2pm, here you can enjoy your morning coffee or eating alfresco at lunch or in the evening.
Roadside parking is free, but with a restriction each day for 2 hours between 10am -11am and 7pm -8pm. There is unrestricted parking a few streets away just beyond Wish Road. With prior planning off road parking in the drive can be arranged, so please let me know if you require this.
Braemore Road is in a very sought after residential area nestled between Hove sea front - with all its leisure activities, and New Church Road - with regular bus service and an array of small traditional shops 5 minutes walk away in Richardson Road. Here you will find a "village" of traditional small shops including: boulangerie, pattisserie, fish monger, butchers, grocers, newsagents, coffee lovers paradise shop and cafe, hairdressers, off-license, gift shop, florists and so much more.
Restaurants and cafes are also in abundance a 10 minute walk away. Night clubs and dance venues are to be found in Hove, but are more prolific in Brighton along with the cinemas.
A walk along the sea front takes 30 - 40 minutes into Brighton, a bike ride 10 -20 minutes, a bus ride 10 - 20 minutes and car ride is just 5 minutes on a clear run.
I am an accommodating and flexible host that understands guests need for privacy and space. I live and work here a lot of the time, but will rarely be seen during your stay as most of the time I use another entrance. I will be here to welcome you and show you around. There after I can be contacted by text if you have any queries or problems. By the way my cat and dog are not allowed in the front door into the guest area. They have a lovely abode at the back of the property. I love animals and will consider small, quiet, house trained, flea free dogs coming to stay too.
Please note: medium/large/moulting dogs will be considered as 2nd guest and £10 per night will apply.
I am also available (with prior arrangement) to offer an array of relaxing, revitalizing and rejuvenating holistic health and beauty treatments on site. Please let me know if you are interested in this additional service that benefits from substantial and enticing discounts for my guests. 121relaxretreat ((website hidden)) (site under construction)
Guests have access via the front door to hallway, bedsitting room (1st door on right) and bathroom (2nd door on left). Also front garden patio picnic table is reserved for Airbnb guests. A parking space is available if requested in sufficient time. If you have a large 4x4 it may compromise access to the property. Anyway free parking in close proximity is not a problem, and I can direct you when you arrive.
Interaction with Guests
Guests are usually welcomed by me, and shown around their accommodation, which is self contained to the hall, bathroom and large bedsit room. Instructions are given regarding facilities and health and safety. I ask guests to communicate thereafter by text message, as I like to give as much privacy as possible. I work from home most of the time and have clients between midday and 6pm, so also need privacy myself. Most often I use another entrance, so can give you total privacy in the mornings till midday and evenings after 6pm.
We are so close to the sea and all the leisure activities on Hove seafront. This includes a large indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, pitcnputt golf and watersports at Hove lagoon. The bike paths go all the way to Rottingdean. The promenade is a great way to walk into Brighton with seafront cafes, restaurant and bars along the way.
The bus service from Richardson road offer regular and efficient transport through Hove to Brighton. The 1 and 1a go via the shopping centre at Churchill Square right past the Royal Sussex Hospital and beyond. The 6 goes direct to Brighton station via Churchill Square shopping mall.

We had an amazing time in Brighton and Lyn was very lovely. The room is big and provides everything you need for a holiday! The house is also really close to the sea and it's only a 20 minutes walk to brighton!
Lyn made us feel very welcome, the room was perfect and we had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend staying with Lyn.
Lyn, thankyou. You are a perfect host and the accommodation was even nicer than expected. Will certainly check availability with you first next time we come down to Brighton. See you soon....Hopefully.
We had a lovely time in Lyn's appartment. Lyn was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. The appartment is a really short walk from the seaside and Brighton is just 15 minutes away (by bike).
This is the second time I have stayed with Lyn and both times she has been a very welcoming host. There were only minor changes from when I last stayed with Lyn back in 2013 but she still explained how everything worked to make sure I was going to be ok with everything, during my stay. We stayed in text contact which was good as I was able to change my check in time and also let Lyn know when I had checked out and returned home. I am familiar with Hove and the location is just as described and a short walk from the beach. I would recommend Lyn and her place and look forward to staying here again in the future.

About the Host, Lyn
I originally studied Hotel and Catering Operations way back. Subsequently I became a health care professional , mainly ITU and Cardiac nursing, having worked in UK, Switzerland and France over more than 25 years. Also a practicing Holistic Therapist for over 20 years. Well travelled! Covered 25 US states by Greyhound bus at the tender age of 18 by myself ....no mobile phones in those days. ....will always cherish the amazing hospitality of people I met and stayed with on my journey. Have hosted many foreign language students over the years and touring theatrical performers for over 20 years. So generally well versed in the hospitality business - and I thoroughly enjoy providing a comfortable, safe and welcoming abode.
I am in the process of developing a home based business which revolves around providing a holistic retreat for one or two people at a time. The aim is to offer a combination of pampering and deeply relaxing treatments including Aromatherapy, Massage, Reflexology, Reiki, Rejeuvenating Facials and Makeovers. Guided Meditation and instruction with Wellbeing Coaching are also to be incorportated, along with nutritious meals and juicing for health. This will be an affordable, cost effective, albeit bespoke service primarily dedicated to people needing to thoroughly recharge and be well looked after for a 2 - 3 night stay during the week or at the weekend. Great sensitivity to personal circumstances is emphasised and confidentiality paramount. Web site is currently under construction.
