We really enjoyed our stay at Marie's house. Even if she was not there, everything was clean and even the breakfast was ready. Marie explained us very well how to enter inside the house. The house is near the city center and the train station, in a very calm area. Thank you very much and hope to see you next time !

Response from Marie:
Thank you Jessica. I hope I get the chance to meet you if you are ever back in the area. All the best Marie :-)

The place is very clean, the breakfast was very good. The location was perfect as it was quite close to the city centre (we could go there by foot). Marie's home is very comfortable and welcoming. I definitely recommend her place!!

Probably our nicest airbnb stay to date. Marie is great with communication, the house and room are clean and tidy, bed was comfy and fresh, and the breakfast selection was generous. Would happily recommend and come back!

Lovely house, incredibly comfy bed, room manages to feel both clean and tidy and very cosy at the same time. We were in and out quite late at night and early in the morning so we didn't see much of Marie, but when we did she was great! And breakfast left out for us in the morning was really appreciated. If I ever end up in Southampton again I would stay at Marie's.

While I did not have a chance to meet Marie as I was busy she was always accessible by text or airbnb message service. Extremely helpful. Room was clean and tidy. Mattress was superb. Location was accessible and quiet. Breakfast was plentiful. All in all Marie runs a very efficient operation. Will recommend to fellow phd students should they need a room in Southampton.

Marie's B&B is cosy, clean and a pleasure to stay in. Marie herself is very welcoming, nice chats! House is very well equipped and in a good, central location but tucked away enough to offer peace and quiet. Definitely recommend.

My son introduced me to this site as he also has the travel bug. I am a late starter but in the past 10 years I have made up for lost time. The furthest I have driven was to Lapland in Northern Sweden, which was amazing. I have travelled to Norway, Finland, France, Italy, Spain, Bulgaria, Morocco and Las Vegas among other places and next I want to visit Iceland in the hope of seeing the beautiful Northern lights, also Budapest. I have so many countries to visit on my bucket list. I love to see the sights, meet new people, experience the cultures and taste the food of all countries. I don't have a favourite, they are all beautiful and interesting in their own way. I like to try and ensure I learn the basics of the language, even if it may only be please and thankyous!!
I also enjoy going to the theatre, (recently saw the 'Full monty' at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton, now its one of my favourites) listening to music, eating out and spending as much time as possible with my two granddaughters, who have brought me so much happiness.
I am very clean and tidy, respectful of peoples homes and I feel I am a perfect guest to have. I would also want you to enjoy your stay in Southampton to the max. I will do all I can to ensure you enjoy your stay in my home.
My life motto? To treat others the way I like to be treated.
I hope we get to meet some day. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Enjoy the rest of your day.
I am loving hosting. I have met some of the nicest people and listening to their stories of their countries and places they have travelled, I am learning so much. One problem! I am usually quite sad when they leave!
