The space

We have a lovely sunny and spacious double private room in Poet's Corner, Brighton & Hove. Very conveniently located 8 minutes' walk from Hove train station (on the mainline to London Victoria and London Bridge) and 10 minutes from beautiful Hove seafront. Very close to a great array of fantastic local pubs and many local shops (on Blatchington Road, George Street, Church Road and Portland Road). Trains to Brighton take 4 minutes and run every 10 minutes. We are also 2 minutes' walk away from a bus stop which will take you into the centre of Brighton.

The double bedroom is a bright and sunny room with a very comfy kingsize double bed, on the second floor of a beautiful period 3 storey 3 bedroom home inhabited by Chris & Hannah (easy going, friendly ex-backpackers) and little Jack (aged 2) and our latest addition, baby Joe.

You will have exclusive use of a large bathroom with a bath and power shower. We can also provide a hairdryer and hair straighteners if required to save you space in your suitcase!

You will have access to our fully equipped kitchen which you are free to use and help yourself to tea/coffee/hot chocolate.

We provide clean linen and towels, tea/coffee making facilities in the room, and offer a breakfast of a selection of cereals, toast and jam, and sometimes American-style pancakes with maple syrup, mmm! Hannah loves to bake so there are usually freshly baked muffins, cupcakes or cookies to help yourself to in the kitchen as well.

You are more than welcome to share our kitchen, living/dining room and patio garden.

You will have access to free wifi (you can borrow a laptop for use in the house if you want) and are welcome to browse and borrow from our book and CD collections. If cycling or skateboarding are your thing you are also welcome to borrow our bikes and skateboard! Hove beach and lagoon are a short walk away, and we can provide you with picnic blankets, a picnic basket with picnic crockery, and beach towels if you fancy having al al fresco DIY lunch/dinner out.

If you need parking we can offer you a visitors parking permit which will entitle you to nearby roadside parking at a cost of £5 per day.

We welcome people from all over and all walks of life. Our room can comfortably host one couple and we can also accomodate couples with a baby/toddler (we can provide a travel cot and various other things for kids!).

Originally from Berkshire/Buckinghamshire, we have lived in Brighton/Hove for 10 years now (minus a couple of years away backpacking) so know and love this city pretty well and will be pleased to give you any advice and tips for making the most of your stay in Brighton & Hove.

Hands down the best host experience I personally had with airbnb. Hannah & Chris are very nice! I would totally recommend it to anyone. The room is really cute & the bathroom nice & big. The house is close to the station. Definitely recommend it. Hannah also bakes amazing cakes by the way! I was really impressed!

We had a wonderful time in Hanna & Chris's house. We felt like "home sweet home", we had our own bathroom and the bedroom was located in the 2nd floor so we had our own part of the house. Hannah cooked some really nice cakes and scones for the breakfast and Chris gave us some advice to discover the city. Brighton is an amazing place with many things to discover and with a fantastic atmosphere. Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour chez Hannah et Chris. La maison est très chaleureuse et typiquement anglaise, notre chambre était située au 2eme étage (que nous étions les seuls à occuper) et nous avions notre propre salle de bain. Hannah est une excellente cuisinière et nous a préparé des scones et muffins maison pour le petit déjeuner. Et enfin Brighton est une ville incroyable avec une atmosphère calme et électrique en même temps, à visiter absolument !

Hannah and Chris made us feel like home. We stayed in a great sunny room and had access to the private bathroom. We could also use garden, living room or kitchen if we wanted to, which was really kind. Lovely family, very approachable and flexible. Thank you for having us. Hannah - thank you for amazing cakes!

What a lovely house with a homely feel. Plus a really great spread for breakfast topped off by some delicious cakes. Hannah and Chris were fab hosts and went out of their way to bring the keys to us and to accommodate my two young kids too by putting up a travel cot with bedding. I would highly recommend this place and these host.

Hannah and Chris made me very welcome. Room facilities and breakfast was the best so far. Splendid shower facilities. An unexpected early morning visit from the 2 youngest members of the family was a very pleasant surprise!

Hannah & Chris User ProfileHannah & Chris is a superhost.

Discovered Airbnb whilst holidaying in Seattle and are now hooked - can't imagine staying in a hotel ever again! We are ex-backpackers, now forced to travel to slightly less far-flung places with slightly more luggage owing to having three small companions (Jack, aged 4, Joaquin, aged 2, and baby Juno). Hoping to one day fulfill a long held dream to run our own backpackers hostel, but in the meantime really enjoy meeting fellow travellers from near and far by opening our home in Hove to them.

Other than travelling, we love running along the seafront and South Downs, 90s grunge and indie music, beat literature, baking, long lazy Sunday roasts in our local, Gruffalo hunting with the kids in the woods, picnics on Hove beach and meeting fellow travellers.
