My aim is to provide safe, clean, reasonably priced accommodation for lone female visitors to Brighton.

I live high on a hill just outside the centre of town; there are wonderful views towards the South Downs and across Brighton to the coast. The downside is that you have an invigorating walk uphill to my house, or you can get here by bus or taxi.

Unsuitable for quarantine. Single occupancy only.

Please help me to help you; read my property description and house rules in full before booking.

Ang tuluyan
On offer is a north-facing bedroom, overlooking the street - it’s on the first floor of my hundred-years old house. It has a king-size bed, and a double wardrobe with curtained recesses. The floorboards are painted white.

There is a foldaway table and chairs in the wardrobe, which you can use if you need workspace.

Please note this is my home so I do not have locks on my internal doors. However, I would never access the room without speaking to a guest first. The only exception to this promise is in case of emergency or if I believe that someone might be unwell.

The mezzanine bathroom you would be using is down a flight of eight steps from the bedroom. This is listed as shared because I (or the occasional day-time guest) might use the toilet during the day. However, there will be no one else sleeping on this floor. The only time I will have to come down to this bathroom in the morning is if I have problems with the en-suite to my room. The toilet has a saniflo engine which has been known to go wrong, or the top floor pipes might freeze in winter.

I want my guests to visit me and have a good time, doing whatever makes them feel good. If you want to go out to a gig or club and come back late, fine! That’s my kind of lifestyle too. Just don’t be noisy when you come in - respect the neighbours please. I get on well with them, and want to keep it that way.

Although I am a cat lover, I do not have cats of my own. However my neighbour’s cats love to visit me - I may even be looking after them if their owners are away. Please don’t come if you are allergic to cats, as these cats have no boundaries and go all over my house. They are not allowed in the guest room.

I do not allow smoking or vaping anywhere in my house, please do not book if you can’t stick to this.

Saan ka pupunta

The City of Brighton and Hove, England, United Kingdom

I live in an area locally as Bear Mountain. It is a safe, friendly neighbourhood near to Brighton University. It takes 10-15 minutes to walk to the campus via Lewes Road. The University of Sussex at Falmer is a short bus ride away.

The local community is very mixed. My neighbours are very kind - they help, and look out for one another. There are lots of families living roundabout as well as students. I have met older residents who have been in the area for fifty years or more.

There are lots of cheap restaurants and takeaways down on Lewes Road, and a large branch of Sainsbury’s. There is also a Co-Op supermarket close by, along with some family run, independent food shops.

You can find cashpoints in Sainsbury’s and outside the Co-Op, and at the small Marks and Spencers situated in the garage by Sainsbury’s.

I care about my health, the health of my guests, and the health of the community I live in. I have had both Covid jabs and will be having boosters if advised to do so. I do Lateral Flow Tests twice a week. Originally from Teddington in Middlesex, I have lived and worked in quite a few countries and visited many more. When I came back to the UK, I knocked around North and East London for many years before moving to Brighton early in 2018. A trained chef, I left the catering industry about ten years ago. However, I am still very interested in food and drink and am enjoying visiting some of the many restaurants in Brighton. I also love to cook at home. As well as working as a chef on an army barracks in Sydney, I had many other jobs when I was backpacking around the world. These included working on farms and dive boats. However the bum job that gave me the opportunity to be at my laziest, was when I worked as a chambermaid in a hotel in Israel. If I finished my round quickly, I had the habit of spreading a clean sheet on a bed and having a nap. One day a guest checked in early and caught me out. Luckily he saw the funny side of it, and asked if I came included in the price of the room, or if I cost extra! I’m very into live music and DJ sets and am enjoying Brighton’s nightlife. The great thing about it here, is that older people can go to a club and dance, and no one thinks anything about it. I’m also a big fan of the meetup site, and am managing to make some new friends here. I love all animals, especially cats. A friend told me that I attract them, and this probably true. They come in the house uninvited and follow me home. I’ve even woken up with a neighbour’s cat on the bed with me, after coming in late at night. I do not have any pets of my own at present, although I plan to change this at some point in the future. I’m very friendly and like to think I’m approachable. If you feel like a chat or need help during your stay, just ask. If you prefer to have privacy I will respect this. Some thoughts on Airbnb and guest expectations. The first thing that springs to mind is that some guests who come here, do not go beyond reading a couple of reviews before deciding to request to book. In one case I had a lady here who had a cat phobia. The next door neighbours have six, and they are always all over my garden. Another was surprised at the hill up to my house. I mention both these things in the property description. If they had just read it, their discomfort could have been avoided. Another major difference is that some guests think that airbnb accommodation is going to be at five star hotel standard. My take on this is that you are staying in people’s homes, so while they shouldn’t be filthy there is going to be some wear and tear. Public or private feedback which is constructive is always welcome, and much appreciated. I read all my reviews and act on your comments and suggestions. However, the one area that comes in for more flak than anywhere else is the kitchen, which I acknowledge needs updating. For example, the cupboards’ veneers and door handles are tatty - but to a recent guest this equated to them being “sticky.” It seems to me that no matter how much attention I pay to cleanliness, the area will never be sanitized enough for some guests. To be fair this may be due to the current pandemic. For this reason, I no longer offer breakfast, kitchen usage, cooking or free use of the washing machine. If you want a modern kitchen to yourself then book an entire place and pay the increased cost for it. Mine is a working kitchen and I use it. If I disagree with your ratings or comments, it is my policy to do so in my response to your review. I won’t be embarrassed to share a low rating, or any negative private feedback I think is unjustified. It is not only my prospective guests who will see this. Your future hosts may also look at previous reviews you’ve written with any replies, when deciding whether to accept a booking from you. Hotels offer 24 hour reception service, most airbnb hosts do not. I work outside the home at times, so cannot always be flexible about check in. Therefore I need some indication of what time you plan to come, when you book. If you want to change your arrival time, don’t just assume I am able to agree to this and be here to welcome you. Hotels charge guests to check in before 3pm or check out after 11pm - so do I. I do understand that flights are delayed but please let me know if this happens. Even better give me your flight number when you book. I have my cancellation policy set to moderate, but it seems to me that very few people read the details. Too many guests travel without insurance - it’s a false economy. Even worse, some of them try and pass on some of their financial loss to me when stuff happens with their Easyjet or Ryanair flights! I WILL NOT give discretionary refunds for unused nights if your flight is cancelled or delayed. It’s not fair or ethical to expect this of hosts, or to leave them a bad review out of spite when they refuse. Get travel insurance before you leave home. You’re mad if you don’t - losing the cost of a night’s accommodation could be the least of your worries. Airbnb can override my cancellation policy if a guest can supply proof of certain extenuating circumstances. If you think yours qualify, I am happy to take the matter to Airbnb and let them make the decision. Airbnb forbid hosts to accept cash payments - I won’t under any circumstances. If things go wrong Airbnb won’t get involved, and my house insurance is invalid. Even if you can get a host to do this, Airbnb won’t want to know about any problems that occur if they haven’t had their share of your money! Finally, all women are welcome in my home no matter what color you are, or where you are from. I am LGTB friendly and my aim is to offer a safe environment for female visitors to Brighton. So far I have had 29 different nationalities here, and would like to have guests from every county in the world! I look forward to meeting you.

Sa iyong pamamalagi

I’m very friendly and I want to make you feel welcome, while respecting your privacy.

You will have solitude if you require it.

I am happy to give help and advice on the local area, but as I have not lived in Brighton that long, I don’t know much about it yet. We can always go online to find out any information you might need.

I prefer not to allow prospective guests to instant book. I have the Airbnb app on my phone, so will see and respond to messages very quickly.
