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
I love this house. The host Yolande is very kind. Because of Yolande's kindness, I felt like staying in my home. And it is very easy to go. There are many transportation near the house. I can use Tram number 3, metro number1 and 2 very easily. And she has a kind cat. The cat Elsa is very kind and lovely cat. If i have a chance to go marseille, i will stay here again. It's very nice experience!
I had an emergency on the way to Yolande's place & sent a text to let her know & get information. When I arrived she had gone to the pharmacy for me to purchase the items I needed. Most hosts would have just told me how to get to the pharmacy! That was a thoughtful touch. As with other guests, she welcomed me with a huge salad for dinner and lively conversation. The next morning there was tea & apricots fresh from the market. A trip together to the Vieux Port and then to tour the Panier district made for a great full first day in Marseille :) Yolande is curious about her guests and likes to share interesting bits of French history, local lore and fun facts. She looks for ways to make her visitors' stay a pleasant one & is so helpful with guides, maps, suggestions & the like. She likes to share & enjoys giving small gifts unexpectedly! Her location is great, making the city completely accessible by walking, tram or metro to wherever!! There are all kinds of shops and markets right outside & countless brasseries & cafes to choose from. If you want a really friendly, warm & engaging host who will see to your every need and is in an ideal location to easily see all the sights, Yolande is your girl ^_^
Perfect! I spent 2 weeks at Yolande's place and have never felt uncomfortable. It felt like home and time went by so fast. She was incredibly welcoming and warm and we have had great chat, laughs and lunch/dinner together. When you stay here, you don't only get the place, you get good friendship and experience out of it.
Yolande was a wonderful host, very easy to communicate with.
The location is great, next to the metro station and walking distance to the inner city.
Yolande is an amazing host. She makes you feel at home immediately. Perfect location, in the heart os Marseille. Calm and quiet environment at night. Metro line is just outside the door. The Port is at walking distance.
Yolande is a very generous and dedicated host. She does everything to make her guests feel at home. The place is small and due to thin walls not super soundproof, but it has a lot of charme and the location is excellent.
