We offer a quiet beach themed room with its own bathroom separate from the hosts. It is on the top floor of a centrally located Victorian white stucco house which has been skilfully interior designed in a clean and contemporary style.
We offer a quiet beach themed room, to get you in the seaside mood, on the top floor of a classic Brighton Victorian white stucco house which has been extensively refurbished to a very high standard.
Guests have their own bathroom (with separate shower) separate from the hosts.
This is located on the same floor as the guest bedrooms. Most of the time, guests will have sole access to the top floor and the bathroom, however, occasionally we may have friends staying in the other guest bedroom who will also share the bathroom.
Guests also have access to the kitchen and the rear patio garden. You are welcome to help yourself to tea and coffee in the kitchen and you can also use the kitchen for making light snacks.
All towels and bed linen are provided.
We look forward to welcoming you to Brighton.
Standard check in during the week is 7pm mainly because we both work in London. We can sometimes accommodate an earlier check-in so please let us know if this is required.
Weekends check in is more flexible.
Interaction with Guests
We like to give guests the privacy they need to fully unwind and enjoy Brighton but we are always on hand to make recommendations or provide advice.
During the week we are out at work from very early in the morning until 7pm in the evening so the chances are you will have the place to yourself. At the weekends we are around more, and it's not unheard of to have guests joining us for a nightcap if our path's cross.
We live on a very quiet street lined with Victorian, white stucco fronted townhouses, typically Brighton in style. It is a very safe area 3 minutes from Brighton railway station with everything you could need close by.
The North Laine is 5 minutes walk away where you can make the most of the cosmopolitan cafe culture or browse the quirky and colourful independant shops and boutiques. Walk a few minutes further and discover the Lanes which is a fabulous maze of twisting alleyways offering an extraordinary mix of antiques and jewellery shops nestling alongside specialist contemporary and designer boutique fashion. Finally the seafront with the famous Palace Pier is about 15 minutes walk away.
Brighton attracts an eclectic crowd making it an ideal destination for young people and older generations alike. It is widely regarded as one of the most bohemian and fashionable cities in the UK with its laid-back, effortlessly cool vibe.
Parking and driving in Brighton is a bit of a nightmare. Brighton is a great walking city so you are unlikely to need your car whilst here. We strongly recommend that guests take the train, especially as we are only 3 minutes walk from the station.

Staying at Rich and Mike's place was lovely. Their beautiful home has a great feel to it. The room is lovely, with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom is modern, and clean. Rich and Mike were very welcoming. Thanks!
Had a fantastic time staying with Rich and Mike. They made us feel extremely welcome and couldn't have been more helpful. They are very easy going and delightful to be around. The house is beautiful and the top floor feels like a great private space. Would definitely recommend staying here and would book again without hesitation.
The house was beautiful, a treat for my friend and me. It is so close to the station and the town. I ran into Mike twice during my weekend, when arriving and leaving, and he was very welcoming and gave us some food recommendations. Lovely room and bathroom and would definitely stay here again. Thankyou!
Just spent 3 nights at Rich and Mike's place and would highly recommend it. Communication was great and, as a first time Airbnb-er and single female - I felt very comfortable and safe.
Mike went above and beyond the duty of a host by providing me with a lovely fluffy hot water bottle to help with my cold too!
Would def like to stay again.
Received a wonderful warm welcome from Rich and Mike. Really loved staying at their 'bijou' property which was only 5 minutes walk from the station and 10 minutes walk from the shopping. Rich and Mike did everything possible to make my stay a memorable one. The guys have an exceptional flair for design which shows in the accurate representation of the photos - the house was immaculate in every way and every bit, a home!
What a great place to stay! Mike was a very helpful, friendly host, giving us lots of advice about where to eat and drink in Brighton. The location was excellent -- only 5 minutes walk from the station and the city centre, but far enough away from the noise of Brighton nightlife, in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood. The victorian house has been tastefully decorated and furnished and was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was amazing !!! --beautiful clean lines, as was the kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and I slept really well.! Thank you Mike and Rich for letting us stay here. I would love to stay here again the next time I visit Brighton.
We both live in Brighton and work in London. Much of our working week is spent in transit between both cities but it is worth it to live in such a fabulous city.
We completely renovated our Victorian town house approximately 2 years ago and we started doing AirBnB shortly after we moved back in following the renovations.
In that time we have met lots of fabulous and colourful people and we have had many fun times and laughs along the way with some of our guests who have stayed with us. We are happy for guests to join us if our paths cross socially, however at the same time we respect the importance of privacy and giving guests the space they need to enable them to relax, unwind and get the most out of their stay - whatever their reason for coming to our city.
