My cat and I would welcome you as we live in the flat and I sleep in the living-room. You will share the living-room, the kitchen and the bathroom with me. It will be very kind of you if you allow my cat to go to the patio.. Smokers are allowed.
I offer you a cup of coffee or tea in the morning.
Please live the door of the bathroom open as there's a lack of air. It would be kind to leave the bathroom and the kitchen as clean as you've found it

Interaction with Guests
I interact quite well in a sense I'm always available for any questions. I try to make my guests at ease but I respect their privacy. People are very different I adapt to them: some like to talk some others not. I have a deep respect for human being
very central with the two lines of the underground and in a year it will be the tram. Many shops around. Very close from Vieux Port and Cours Julien (10 or 15 minutes walk). It is very lively in daytime and very quite in the evening
Concerning the kitchen and especially the bathroom I like when the guests leave those two rooms as clean as they have found it
Yolande is the kindest host I have ever seen！A very wonderful experience in Yolande place！Yolande is very friendly and makes everthing clean and confortable.We had a nice talk.I love her British accent and like her welcome cake and that amazing gift～The position of her place is very convenient. And her cat elza is always my best friend～
Le séjour chez Yolande s'est super bien passé, en plus d'être une hôte exceptionnelle, elle est également d'une gentillesse et d'une sincérité sans pareil. On se sent vraiment bien, c'est comme à la maison. Connaissant Marseille, j'ai pu redécouvrir une autre vision de ses habitants. J'ai beaucoup aimé nos divers échanges, nos dîners que Yolande a préparé avec amour, elle m'a également fait découvrir plusieurs saveurs, plusieurs senteurs. Si vous voulez vivre une expérience authentique, riche en découverte et en plus à deux pas des divers transports en commun de la ville, au plein coeur du célèbre quartier Castellane de Marseille, c'est bien chez Yolande que vous devez vous rendre. En plus son chat, Elsa est super agréable à vivre, elle est câline comme tout ! Si un jour je devais repasser par Marseille, je ne manquerai pas de contacter Yolande ne serait-ce pour dîner ou déjeûner ensemble ! Un hôte exceptionnel, plein de qualités humaines, d'ouverture d'esprit et d'une grande sagesse.

My friend and I spent two nights with Yolande, and I can easily say that she is everything you look for in a host!! We honestly had a fantastic time and Yolande did everything and more to make us feel right at home. We were able to come and go as we pleased, and for the quiet evenings Yolande is always ready for a great chat and a hot cup of tea! :) If you're interested in an Airbnb experience to make new friends, laugh, and exchange culture and stories, Yolande is your girl! My friend and I hope to go back to Marseille and stay with Yolande again!
I really enjoyed staying at Yolande's apartment! She was a nice and generous host and fluent in english (english teacher!), which made communication really easy.
Besides welcoming me with a salad, we spent the evenings chatting and watching movies, we even prepared dinner together and had lots of fun! The apartment was great, as it was clean and I always felt like getting home. Its location is also really good, since the metro Castellan is just around the corner. Although I'm usually not that into cats, her cat Elsa was fun to be around, really gentle and cute and I had no allergic symptoms (which I normally have around cats).
Unfortunately, Yolande was a bit sick during my stay, but she did everything she could to make my stay as comfortable as possible, which I'm really grateful for!
All in all I am very glad that I stayed with Yolande and I can highly recommend her! :)
Yolande was a very friendly and generous host. Her apartment with its cute balcony is nicely centerally located the city. If you're a smoker, this is an ideal location. If you're not a smoker or are sensitive/allergic to smoke (or the cute cat), be aware that this is a smoking listing even though it's not specifically stated. In any case, Yolande was a fun host. :)
Il a été super d'héberger chez Yolande! Elle vous fait sentir à l'aise, tout comme chez soi! On a eu le plaisir de manger ensemble et de parler beaucoup! Sa chatte, Elsa, est adorable elle-aussi! L'appartement est très beau, bien équipé et proche de tout ce qui peut intéresser aux voyageurs, juste près de Castellane!! Ne le ratez pas!!
