Myself and a group of 10 friends hired this house for a Hen weekend. The place was brilliant! amazing decor, quirky touches and the house had everything you could ever need and more, including a charger for my camera which I had left at home! the central location was just what we needed, and the extra touches like toiletries to use and tea and coffee provided were a real bonus. however there were a couple of small down sides (nothing that would put me off returning). With so many of us sharing the house, the clear glass door to the en suit bathroom was a bit of a pain, especially when we were trying to get ready to go out. we are all girls and pretty good friends, but even still didnt really want to watch each other having a wee! although to be fair to the owner we were advised the house was more suited to 8 guests. the other down point is also bathroom related, the shower in the main bathroom looks great but is completely impractical, we took great care with it and yet still the water came through the kitchen ceiling(a problem the owner admits frequently happens). when we contacted the lady responsibly for the house to tell her what had happened (who in turn called the owner) we were given a bit of a lecture (from both people) on using the shower correctly and how costly it is to continually repair the kitchen ceiling because people dont do as they are asked. I personally feel I was spoken to in a slightly rude and patronising manor. I was made to feel that our damage deposit was at risk of not being returned (this was luckily not the case) so because of this we decided that we would not use the shower for the rest of the weekend, and all used the en suit for showering.
so in summary, this place is amazing, and I would highly recommend it , so much attention to detail and a great location. Jo was so helpful throughout the whole booking process, and was happy to answer my mountain of questions. the house is probably more suited to smaller groups or a couple of young families. just beware when using the shower!

We visited the Dean Street Townhouse for a long weekend in March and I must say all 12 of us had the most amazing time! The house had a real WOW factor, the decor was amazing, there were so many little touches that made it a real treat to stay there. The kitchen was well stocked with the basics, plenty of tea bags etc. There was plently of seating for over 12 in the lounge and the sleeping arrangements were great. They even had a vast array of CDs, ipod docks in most rooms, luxury bathrooms and plenty of mirrors which is vital when youre all getting ready to hit the town! The location is perfect, we didnt have to take cabs or public transport anywhere, and the pub opposite is great for a fun low key night out. Parking was great, we didnt have trouble getting spaces. Wed all highly recommend it to anyone visiting Brighton in a large group, and will all be returning. Just remember loo rolls, we were only supplied with a couple and the first floor shower is VERY hot but the top floor one is fine.
I'm so glad you had a great time and loved the house. Just to say I didn't know about the shower but after I read your review I checked it and yes it was faulty. It's now fixed so I'm very grateful for the feedback. Best wishes, Jo

The property was gorgeous and had loads of extras that you wouldnt normally find to make the stay very homely (board games, dvds, bath products, comfy furniture, tvs in the bedrooms). There were plenty of cleaning and bath products for us to use while we stayed so we didnt need to buy anything but, food and drink. There were so many personal touches it felt like a home away from home.
It was close to the centre so all of the shops were on your doorstep.
I would definitely stay again and want to find an excuse to!
Jo, the owner, was great, too and met us on time and made the booking process very easy!

Central to Brighton. Comfortably accommodated five people. Amenities were A1. Exceptional luxury accommodation would not hesitate in recommending.

There was 8 of us that stayed at the house and we were in ore of the level of detail, quirky furtniture and display items within the house. Jo met us promptly and has thought of everything, including toiletries, tea coffee etc. The glass bathroom door in the ensuite was a surprise! very continental..
I would not hesitate to book again, but do agree with a previous review regarding length of time damage deposit is taken for, when credit card details may suffice.
Overall a fabulous house in a central location.

The property was absolutely wonderful and Jo, the owener, couldnt have been more helpul. It was perfect for my hen weekend with 8 girls - there was plenty of space for all of us.
The property is really central, so you dont need to walk far or get taxis - everythings on the doorstep. The interior is gorgeous and we really felt at home during our stay.
My only criticism is the was the way the rental company manages the security deposit for the house. A £500 security deposit has to be paid one month before the stay and was only returned to me 2 weeks after our stay, meaning I was without £500 for 6 weeks. I completely understand that some security is needed, but when I have rented places before only my credit card details were taken in case of any damage, which worked well.

Thanks for a lovely weekend, the house provided the perfect venue for a relaxed get together of friends. Definitely lived up to the expectations and photos, really well equipped, clean and comfortable house. So central to shops and beach. Very easy booking process and kept well informed throughout. Would definitely stay again.

The booking system was very easy to use and the owner was very helpful in answering queries. The property was good value for money and exceeded our expectations. The decor was very stylish and top quality and everyone was very impressed. The description was very accurate and we could have asked for nothing more - Jo, the owner, had thought of everything that could possibly be provided. We would definitely recommend it - its perfectly placed for everything being just a few minutes walk from the shops, the sea front, The Lanes, The Pavilion - in fact everything. There were 10 of us in the property for the weekend (the maximum number) but we didnt feel cramped at all and with the good weather we were able to make good use of the courtyard. We were well looked after both before, during and afte the stay.

"We all had a great time and people couldnt speak highly enough of the house. The kitchen was brilliantly equipped (better than mine at home) and it was great to see you had everything from irons to tomato ketchup already in the house. Check in was great and you were very kind to be so flexible with check out as i know a lot of places are strict which can make you feel rushed." Guy, London
