Interaction with Guests
As we share our time between France and the UK, we are not always there to meet our guests.
The location is just fabulous: a stone's throw away (200 yards) from the sea, the apartment is situated between Palmeira and Brunswick Squares. The heart of Brighton is just 10 minutes away; but there are a large numbers of vibrant Cafes, trendy bars, restaurants and boutique shops at the next corner (and also Tesco and Sainsbury local stores) . It is of course a very safe neighborhood !
- From the train station: Bus 6 to Palmeira Square (something like ten/fifteen minutes) and then walk less than 5 minutes. A taxi should be less than 10 pounds.
We have a limited amount of parking permits, which allow you to park next to the flat (if there is space !) and in the surrounding streets (Zone M). Please contact us before booking if you need such permits.

A baby travel cot is also available (bedding not provided).
In case we are not here, you will have to collect keys from a complimentary key safe (next to the train station) . We can also offer a meet and greet service to a cost of £25.00
We would expect guests to be respectful of the furniture, the neighbors and obviously not to damage anything!

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in Brighton. Die Wohnung der beiden ist in einem super Zustand und unsere Erwartungen wurden bestens erfüllt. Die Bilder und Beschreibungen der Wohnung auf airbnb sind realistisch und sehr wahrheitsgetreu. Wir würden dort jederzeit wieder Urlaub machen und können die Lage, Ausstattung, Sauberkeit und Gastfreundlichkeit der Wohnung und der beiden Vermieter nur weiterempfehlen.
We were fortunate to stay here for a whole month whilst we looked for a house in Brighton. The location was extremely convenient, near bus routes to get to all major parts of the city, and a 3 minute walk to the sea front for bracing walks in the morning. There is a Tesco and Sainsbury's near by too.
The house is beautifully furnished making an extremely comfortable stay, and the kitchen is also very well equipped so that we could cook all meals without fail. The Wii made some rainy nights very enjoyable also.
In terms of Hosts, Muriel & Wilfried were easily contactable and very helpful, even organising a mid-stay clean.
I would not hesitate to recommend the apartment to friends and family!
I stayed in this home with two young children (ages 1 and 4). Muriel & Wilfried were wonderful hosts! Their home is lovely and very convenient to the seaside and all amenities of Brighton and Hove. They are also very easy to get in touch with, and very responsive by email. Thank you, Muriel & Wilfried, for a wonderful stay!
It was with great pleasure to stay in Muriels flat in Hove, location is great, beach is 2 min. walk and everything you need is in a few min walk. Muriel and Wilfried are great to do business with. My family is already planning our next to Brighton, hopefully we can stay at their flat again, it fits us and has everything. 5 star flat :)
Friendly and helpful emails, homely flat, very comfortable, we enjoyed our stay and would return to this lovely flat and to Brighton.
Muriel & Wilfried's flat was a lovely and comfortable place to stay. The decor was very charming and we felt right at home with everything we needed. Location was top notch with the seafront and shops/restaurants so close. Don't pass this one up!
I was renting this apartment with a flatmate for a week to look for long-term apartments in Brighton and also to work from home a bit. The internet connection was very good as was everything else. Enough work space for two (as the previous poster mentioned) and a cozy couch to relax afterwards. Also a lot of handmade decorations so it feels like staying in a friend's place.
Haven't met Muriel in person but the e-mail contact was very quick and informative.
I share my time between beautiful Brighton & Hove (Uk) and Strasbourg (Fr).
