Be happy, respect others...
For many years I have aimed to respect people, the planet and the environment. We obey the recycling rules set by the council, we take short showers, the heating is off during the night, we tidy after ourselves (with the children this is sometime hard, so sometime we are tolerant). We are honest and if we have issues, which is likely to happen coming from different cultures we speak to each other as soon as we can.
Please ask for permission for visitors
Use of bad languages prohibited.
Once I confirm we are available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee to Homestay then you pay me on the same day by bank transfer or PayPal. If your booking is more than 2 months ahead you can spread the payment, if your booking is for more than 1 months you can also spread the payment. Please ask for your preferred payment plan when enquiring about availability. When full payment isn't received 2 weeks before the booking I may cancel your booking.
Smoking is not allowed.
Lovely home, an easy walk from the centre of Harrogate. Bed was comfortable and there was no noise from the street to disturb me. I just asked for a simple breakfast of coffee and toast, although she offered to get in alternatives if I wanted. Marie was a lovely friendly host and we shared some great chats, but she was also flexible about guests coming and going as they wanted.
It was just what I needed. Marie was brilliant and walked us into town to show us the shortcuts, was extremely solicitous and the bed was very comfy. It wouldn't suit anyone looking for luxury, but it was very homely.
Marie has always been very very helpful, welcomed Emmanuel as a member of her family and proposed a lot of activities
How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
When can I share my contact details?
Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
