Hi, we are Lee and Sue (Kyoung-Suk). We have been married for 17 years. I am British and 43 years old and Sue is 42 and originates from Seoul, South Korea , but has lived in England now for 18 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 a large detached 5 bedroom house in the exclusive Hove park area. Our home has 2 double guest rooms, 1 single guest room and 1 single/twin guest room.

We have a garden and patio area at the rear of the house which guests can use when the weather is nice.

We have a lovely cat called Lulu

We only host over 18's and have been hosting guests from around the world now for the past 16 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.

About the Area

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. Our home is a couple of minutes walk from Hove park which is a large park containing lots of Tennis courts, football, Rugby and Basketball courts, a miniature railway, Cafe and lots of green space! There are a few shops just next to our home including a Newsagents/convenience store/Off licence/Post Office, Italian restaurant, dry cleaners and a gym. Just a 10 minute walk away is a large Waitress supermarket. There is a bus stop servicing Brighton and Hove train stations, the city centre and Brighton Marina just outside our home by the shops and a more frequent bus just a 10 minute walk away. We live just a 20 minute bus ride away from central Brighton and a 10 minute journey to the beach. Sussex University is a 12 minute drive away via the A27.

    This is not the first time that I have had the pleasure of staying with Sue and Lee. They are both very friendly and hospitable people. They made my wife and I very welcome from the outset and it was a pleasure to stay with them again. I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone. Great! Many thanks Sue and Lee. Until the next time.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
