                    This property was well represented by the description and our experience with booking it was without hassle. The owners and property manager were accommodating and helpful. We asked for groceries to be purchased prior to our stay and Kathleen did a great job of securing our requested items. The place was clean and perfect for our group. I did notice a great build up of dirt and dust on the front doors but nothing to hamper our stay. The location was ideal. Walking distance from many of our favorite spots and not too close to Bourbon but close enough. We will definitely consider this home again when we stay in New Orleans.

                    We recently stayed at the french quarter house for a college reunion. A group of best friends with our spouses that had never been to NOLA. The quarter house was more than we could have imagined! It was very spacious, super clean, modern and very conveniently located. The courtyard was so perfect for our late night re-caps. The surround sound stereo system was like a dream. The 700 club across the street was PERFECT!! Not being able to reconnect as a group but once a year put a lot of high expectations on this house. We could not have been happier. Kathleen was amazing and super helpful. Love love love. Cannot wait to come back.

                    My team from work stayed at this house in the FQ for four nights and really enjoyed it. The pictures capture exactly how the property looks. High ceilings, period details, great art and a surround sound stereo. Easy to walk to Burbon Street and other places in the FQ, highly recommend for a family trip, girls weekend, get away - whatever suits you!

                    My friends and I stayed at the French Quarter House 3/2-3/4 for my bachelorette party. There were about 9 of us and we were all obsessed with the house. We enjoyed every room including the courtyard, master bedroom, guest house and especially the big comfy couch! The location is on a quiet street but literally one block from the action. We will definitely be back!

                    Seven women in my family had a "girls" reunion in New Orleans. The house works like a charm for a group of women (or a large family). Plenty of room to spread out. Well furnished with a very workable kitchen. The location is perfect for women - safe, convenient to everything in the French Quarter. Kathleen, the resident manager, is a delight to work with. She can handle all your needs, questions and more. My group hopes to return again next year. We had a perfect time.

                    As a long-time VRBO user and who has booked many properties through this site, this property did not live up to expectations. We stayed here in January with my family of 4 adults and 3 kids. This is not a luxury property. You should expect more for the price. It is out-dated and poorly maintained There are no pictures of the bathrooms posted on this site because the bathrooms are very old. The master bedroom on the top floor is an attic and you can't stand up straight because it slants. The master shower and bathtub were old and moldy. The living room carpets were stained. The additional apartment is quite unattractive - it's narrow and just 2 beds facing big empty fireplaces. The kitchen is out-dated with old sticky drawers and not recently cleaned - I opened one cabinet door to look for cooking oil and literally a bit plume of dust fell on me. Perhaps the worst is that the owner deducted damage deposit for "extra house-cleaning" and for "ruined" towels. The positives of this house is that - it is close to everything in the French Quarter and the beds were very comfortable.

                    Owner response: We respectfully disagree with most of the charges claimed by this guest, with three notable exceptions. The house is in a good location, the beds are comfortable, and we did not return part of her security deposit. We take a security deposit from each guest for one reason: in the unlikely and unfortunate event that the property is damaged and we must make replacements or repairs. The un-returned part of this guest's deposit was used to replace items damaged during her stay and to cover overtime for cleaning. We budget 8 hours for cleaning after each guest, and in this case additional time was required. This experience is highly unusual. Our guests typically have a wonderful stay in New Orleans, find the features of the house and its appointments luxurious, and the 9 foot ceilings in the master bedroom acceptable. Rarely have we had to withhold any part of a security deposit as our guests are nearly universal in their respect and care for the property.

                    We stayed at this AWESOME house to celebrate my 40th birthday and New Years Eve in New Orleans. Location: PERFECT!!! Walking distance to French Quarter, Saints Dome Stadium, Cable Cars, Waterfront, Jackson Square, restaurants and everything else. Accommodations: INCREDIBLE!!! The house is beautiful and very comfortable. There were only six of us in our group so we all had plenty of space. Kitchen has everything you need to cook your own meals, the courtyard is a great place to relax outside and the beds were soooo comfortable. Everything was clean and very well maintained. The listing description and photos don't do it justice. Property Manager: GREAT!! Answered all our questions before hand and was kind enough to make arrangements for us to drop our bags early and leave them late. She resides on the property and is available if needed but didn't impose on us at all. Very, very nice young lady. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in New Orleans. Five Stars!!

                    This place is perfect for a group of friends or family. Everyone had plenty of room and plenty of bathrooms to share. The entertainment room really came in handy. Our whole gang of ten had plenty of room to sit comfortably and watch the LSA/Bama game. The location could not be beat, only two short blocks from Bourbon St and Pat O's. We love the piano bar. Kathleen was great, only saw her when we checked in but she was available cell phone/text/email and always responded promptly with any questions we had. I hope we have another opportunity again in the future to rent this great house.
