The perfect getaway for two adults with or without children. We unfortunately are not permitted to rent out to more than 2 adults (plus children).
This beautiful apartment on the top floor of this English Heritage grade 2 listed, rare Modernist / Art Deco building, was one of the first penthouses ever in the UK.
Offering a comfortable feel throughout, the apartment boasts a large private sun terrace in which you can enjoy extensive direct sea views and the beach front of Brighton from every room. It's so chilled sitting and chatting enjoying the view. Whether the sun is out or not I love to start the day sitting on the sun terrace/balcony with a coffee or tea in hand and watch the sea crash against the beach, the sky ever changing and the people of Brighton going about their morning plans. At the other end of the day a favourite is drinking a few cocktails just as the sun goes down and the lights of Brighton begin to illuminate.
Annual gas safety certificates checked and awarded and copies available. Fully built in fire alarm system throughout the building, inspected and tested weekly. All furniture with the highest standard fire safety marks. This, all in a building that has been around since the art deco / modernist period!! well maybe that's why its still showing itself off on the seafront of Brighton and protected by English Heritage!
Onsite parking, at very reasonable rates, maybe available. Please let me know and I can check with the parking space owner and book for you. Otherwise on street parking is directly outside on the seafront and also being near both a further bookable parking company and an underground secure gated car park within 2 minutes walk at reasonable rates, your car won't be an issue if you aren't able to arrive by train.
The bandstand on the sea front, close to the apartment is always entertaining, whether it be a wedding, a theatre production rehearsal, bands playing, dance practice, or just visitors checking it out. Hours of people watching fun!

A dressing area with wardrobes giving plenty of space for whatever you may bring. For those having to combine some work with their pleasure, this area is suitable to work from with a desk and superfast wifi, although the view down the seafront can be a little distracting. Continuing down the hall the next room on your left is the stylish kitchen, yes its not palatial but perfectly suited to create a feast for four, with wood surfaces, white high gloss cabinets and amazing views west over Hove seafront. All the equipment you need is provided and for coffee lovers the Nespresso coffee machine is a delight!Finally you reach the sitting room, giving ample space for dining, relaxing, having fun!

Brighton is commonly known as London-by-the-Sea. Situated on the South coast of England, this bohemian resort town is so diverse. It came into fashion around 1780 when a local doctor, Richard Russell, prescribed sea bathing as a health tonic. With the Prince of Wales as his patron, London society quickly headed to the coast. Architect John Nash designed the Royal Pavilion for the Prince who later became King George IV. This fabulously ornate building has a wonderful Oriental influence with its onion-shaped towers. Later in the 30's Wells Coat designed and built Embassy Court, check it out on Wikipedia because this is where you will be staying.
Brighton has a long wonderful promenade, which this apartment is in the middle of and pier with a crazy mix of fun fair and bars. The antique shops along the Lanes are in the original part of Brighton, when it was little more than a village. The pubs and restaurants in this area are full of character as they are throughout Brighton. The North Laine is another focal point of the town and has delightful boutiques and cafés, and occasionally some street entertainment. The well known Komedia Club is situated here, which is famous for its comedy, live music and cabaret acts. Brighton and Hove is filled with stunning Victorian buildings with exceptional buildings along the seafront of Hove. Turn right out of the apartment building and all along the front here the buildings can only impress from a time gone by.
There is a plethora of museums, theatres, and of course the famous Brighton Festival throughout May each year showcasing some of Brightons best! Brightons buzz is on full show throughout. Check out the Brighton Festival website describing it as an annual celebration of music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film, literature, debate, outdoor and family events - taking place in venues both familiar and unusual across Brighton & Hove for three weeks every May. There are also some museums in Brighton including the Booth Museum of Natural History and, appropriately, the National Museum of Penny Slot Machines if you are so inclined.
Last but certainly not least is the UK's largest LGBTQ event, Brighton Pride which seems to bring the entire city out onto the streets, gay, straight and everyone inbetween with events, street parties, The Parade, culminating in a massive outdoor party in the park. This is an event that should not be missed. Brighton and Hove gay pride is being held over the weekend of 3rd-5th August in 2018 but its really a week long affair.
