About This Listing
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 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 our 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 two 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.
Check in on Friday's and weekends 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.

Hosts are very nice, the house and the room is great!
Thank you Rich and Mike for being so welcoming, really enjoyed my two nights there. The house is stunning and the top floor is relaxing, quiet space. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was absolutely stunning, the shower in particular was amazing!! Communication throughout booking was quick and easy, and as hosts, Rich and Mike were wonderful throughout the stay. Highly recommended
We stayed 2 nights for Brighton Marathon weekend. Mike & Rich's home is peaceful, comfortable and immaculately clean. The top floor bedroom and bathroom are light and airy. In fact the bathroom is probably the nicest I have ever used with a huge bath and wondeful big shower. The price is extremely reasonable when compared to even the most basic B&B's in the area. This was our first time using Airbnb and we couldn't have hoped to stay with nicer hosts, who made us feel completely welcome.
Mike and Rich were extremely flexible and helpful when making this booking. They made us feel very welcome, and followed up to check everything was ok. Their house is wonderful and the room and the bathroom both spotlessly clean. Little touches like providing travel essentials in case people forget, indicate the thoughtfulness of the hosts. Great location, less than 5 minutes from the rail station. Good cafes, shops and pubs locally and probably took us 10 minutes or so to reach the lanes. Despite being so close to the centre, we found the road quiet. Great introduction to Air bnb, thanks to you both.

About the Host, Rich & Mike
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.

Great fish and chips. Not great for a veggie alternative although they do have a veggie lasagne. Mike sometimes just has chips and mushy peas to get a chip fixKing's Road Brighton East Sussex BN1 2HH
