About
Seema M


I live in a beautiful Victorian maisonette apartment, with my husband Sean, in the seaside city of Brighton & Hove. We are three minutes’ walk from the beach, near many cafes, bars and restaurants and only a one-hour train ride from London.
I gained my business knowledge in my previous roles, as a financial investigator for The Serious Fraud Office, a call centre team manager and an advertising executive. I have been a Primary teacher for many years now, have taught in Spain and now teach English (EFL) at a local language school for adults.
I would love to show you around our vibrant, liberal & fun city, with its beautiful Georgian and Victorian architecture, beach, pier and palace, doing everything possible to make your stay both comfortable and enjoyable.
