About the Homestay

Nature

Hi, we are Lee and Sue (Kyoung-Suk). We have been married for 13 years. I am British and 40 years old and Sue is 38 and originates from Seoul, South Korea , but has lived in England now for 15 years and is now a British citizen.

We both work full time. I am a self employed property developer and landlord and Sue works as a chartered accountant for a large company in central London and commutes to work Monday to Friday.

We have 2 very lovely cats (Lex and Lulu).

We have been hosting students and guests from around the world now for the past 11 years and really enjoy having people from different cultures and backgrounds stay with us. Some of our guests come back and stay with us for their holidays each year and keep in touch, which is nice.

Our home has 1 double guest room, 1 twin/double/single guest room and 2 single guest rooms. Each of these rooms has a private fridge, Tv/DVD and wireless internet. Our twin/double/single guest room when not occupied is also used as a cinema room, with a large 9 foot cinema screen and 5.1 cinema sound system.
Guests can feel free to join us in both the lounge or the cinema room at any time to chat, relax or watch tv and movies.
We have a garden at the rear of the house with a patio and summer house which guests can use when the weather is nice.

How it works

About the Area

We live in Brighton which is located on the south east coast of England. Brighton is famous for tourists and foreign students that come here to learn/improve their English language and do some sightseeing. It has probably the nicest weather in England and is only a 50 minute train journey from London. The area of Brighton we live in is called Hove. It is the quieter part of Brighton next to the countryside. There is a park and a small shopping area a few minutes walk from our home. We live just a 30 minute bus ride away from central Brighton and about a 20 minute ride from the beach. The bus runs from directly outside our home every 5 minutes and are numbers 5,5A & 5B.

    Lee and Sue are excellent hosts. They are both very friendly and professional. From the time that I arrived they made me feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and had all the facilities that I required. I would like to say a big thank you for going the extra mile. I have no hesitation in recommending Lee and Sue and anyone that stays in the future I am sure would feel exactly the same. Will most definitely book again.

    We really felt at home and the couple had absolutely everything which a guest needs: towels, safe, fridge in the room, wireless lan - and cute cats who came in our room and wanted to be caressed. It was an amazing experience! Thank you!
