                        I stayed in the Dryades Suite for two nights, and wholeheartedly recommend it. The decor is really elegant, and the bed very comfy. I especially loved the large old fashioned tub, and the bright and pretty bathroom. There were two televisions with premium cable, a front porch made for sitting, complete with Frankie the very friendly cat. I used the frig to keep leftovers from Charlie's Steakhouse which is directly across the street. Charlie's! is must for an old fashioned NOLA nostalgia experience. great service and steak with terrific sides. Il Posto down the block for morning latte and scones, and a short walk to Freret St, a happening corridor full of restaurants. I also walked to the swell Prytania movie theater. Really interesting little neighborhood. Easy to book, and just a lovely stay.

                        Amazing house and location. Loved the cafe down the street for breakfast and lots of restaurants that can be easily walked to. We stayed with 7 high school kids and 2 sponsors so we rented both sides. Parking was a little bit of an issue but only because we had a 12 passenger van but we made it work. Thank you for sharing this house with us - loved everything and every minute we were there!! Frankie the cat was an added bonus - what a loveable and easy going cat!!!

                        This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Dryades House and will not be our last! The house is great in every way! Its stocked with everything you'll need for your stay and the Uptown location is perfect - close to the street car, quiet street and within walking distance to great places to eat. Renee and Val are great to deal with, very helpful, quick getting back to you and are a pleasure to deal with. We have stayed with our kids and have stayed with just adults and the house works perfectly for both. Love the front porch and being able to sit out on it on a nice afternoon or evening. The house is clean and up to date but still holds the old New Orleans charm we love. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen has plenty of seating and the living room is great to relax in. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful home with us and we look forward to our next visit!

                        For my wife's "special" birthday we chose NOLA and the Dryades House & Suite. We were 3 couples that have traveled extensively together for many years. Perfect place as a home base for a great long weekend. 3 block walk to the street car and a short ride to the action. Charlie's across the street is a wonderful restaurant with some of the best steaks we have ever enjoyed. Great service as well. Must say was not impressed by Pascal’s Manale as the food was fair at best and the service was poor. Added treat was meeting Barry from next door. Definitely a recommendation if you are headed to NOLA

                        The house is perfect in all ways. Just as it looks on the web. Very cozy, tidy, well decorated, with furniture and stuffs that you will use for your home. Lots of amenities, you will find almost all what you need. Perfectly located at two blocks far from the metro stop. The restaurante in front of the house is not a problem at all. We found allways place to park and even the restaurant is very visited, there is no noice or people going around. We fall in love with the house and the kindness of Barry, the owner. We will certainly recommend our friends to stay here when visiting New Orleans. Lovely city, unforgettable vacations.

                        Our daughter lives in NO . We rented the house of a week in June for her wedding. Most happy to say the air conditioning works great. After days of busy wedding activities to come home to the place was relaxing. We had coffee and pasteries in the morning at the little Italian cafe not a block a way, The kitchen was so useful as we shared the place with our son and daughter in law and grandbaby. Easy to wash baby bottles. Used the front room and porch for a few wedding pictures of the bride too. Lovely stay.

                        Have stayed in the suite at Dryades in March loved it then and it was wonderful the second time as well. Were very busy with Graduation but it was always a relief to go back to the house grab a glass of wine and sit on the porch. Thanks again

                        We had a wonderful time staying at Dryades House for the first weekend of Jazz Fest 2013. The location was charming and quaint, a railroad flat that's been beautifully kept. And just within walking distance were three different restaurants we not only at ate but enjoyed thoroughly. Plus it was conveniently located for driving forays into the French Quarter and to Jazz Fest itself. We had two great days at Jazz Fest, returning each night to the welcoming comfort of Dryades House. We would absolutely return there.

                        the description of the property is very accurate, if you take the video tour you will see everything is as advertised. The property was very clean, and so quaint. It was a great location, and so close to the trolley and other great restaurants. My brother did not want to vacation in NOLA because in his past stays he had only been to the Bourbon street area. He was greatly impressed with the location and wonderful things to see in the Uptown area. We would definitely recommend this rental to friends and family. We really enjoyed it. If was also a great location if you have a dog. Lots of people in the area have them too and are out walking them.
