Thank you for sharing your home. It was absolutely perfecct. There was more than enough room for our 3 familites. The home was amazing and the location was perfect for us to come and go into downtown New Orleans and the surrounding areas....When not out exploring the city, family members enjoyed playing pool / ping pong in the game room or just sitting in the courtyard. Thank you again, we absolutely loved it.

Talk about Amazing!
Talk about amazing! You will feel right at home in these beautiful, well appointed surroundings. From the fragrant linens to the private patio with beautiful flowers, all stress will melt away. The kitchen is a cook’s dream and easy to work in! The only thing wrong was that we couldn’t stay longer! Kudos to the owners, it is the best rental I have stayed in! Susan, New York

Magical weekendGuest comment entered by owner
Thanks for sharing your home. It was a beautiful backdrop for celebrating our daughter's wedding. The decor and space made it very easy to accomodate the 20 guests for her bridal brunch. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting accomodate the stream of well-wishers stopping by throughout the weekend. Thanks again, Andree

Interior Design is Amazing!
Thanks for allowing us to stay at your gorgeous home. You're no doubt a distinguished interior designer. I took any photos of your beautiful rooms, furnishings and the courtyard. I'll show them to my daughter who studies interior design at Cornell.

We stayed here as a party of 6 for a long holiday weekend. The owner was very accommodating. The home is beautiful and we felt like we were staying at the home of a relative or friend. My elderly parents traveled with us and they were completely comfortable in the luxurious master suite. In case you need medical supplies (we rented a wheelchair) Total Health Solutions is less than 3 miles away. The home is very convenient to I-10 for getting around the city. Plus there are plenty of stores and restaurants nearby. Do visit Dorignac's Food Center which is a few blocks away for great local foods. My family and I have rented VRBO's all over the U.S. in the past few years and this was our favorite to date!

Birthday vacation Joe (Islamorada, FL USA) Review submitted: February 13, 2011 Date of arrival: January 23, 2011 We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful, clean, well-maintained home. The Hills are delightful, warm and welcoming owners and the home is well located, convenient to restaurants and tourist attractions. We rented for nearly three weeks and were completely comfortable. The courtyard is a special, plant-filled space that any visitor would enjoy relaxing in. The description was completely accurate. We would not hesitate to enjoy this rental again or to recommend it to friends. Loved it. As far as restaurants we enjoyed Mr. B's, Commander's palace, Mondo, Arnaud's and many others, some helpfully suggested by the Hill's. If you have young people with you and want to hear some music, Preservation Hall is a must. Also, the plantations we toured, Oak Alley and St. Joseph's were very interesting. Can't wait to come back.

We had a marvelous time in New Orleans and this home provided us with privacy and freedom for a much needed girls getaway. Be sure to have a bus and streetcar schedule handy for treks to many attractions which are easy to get to. The owners are gracious and kind.

Owner response: I'm so glad our guests had a great time. In reference to the bus and streetcar schedule, I realize it can be a little daunting for visitors. So, if any of our new guests plan to use the city transit (it is amazing with a wonderful bus and streetcar system), I'll be glad to print out their routes and schedules they will need. (I didn't think to offer to do that for these guests.) It is very economical to use. A 3 day unlimited pass is just $12.00 and you can catch the bus a block from this vacation home and go anywhere in the metroplex. Besides, if you're coming to New Orleans, you NEED to ride the streetcar!

Fabulous Family Birthday Getaway
We rented this gorgeous home for my brother's birthday. There were 8 of us. To say we had a great time would be an understatment. The house was large an comfortable. It was immaculately clean, with luxurious bed linens and towels. The courtyard drew us every night to have one last glass of wine before we went to bed. It was easy to get around the city, centrally located. We had a great family vacation. We would love to stay there again. PS. The owner returned my security deposit the same day we left.

About the owner: Mical and Carolyn Hill looked for years after Hurricane Katrina to find the perfect home to renovate in New Orleans. When they walked into this home, they knew it was IT. Mical, a design home builder, and Carolyn, an interior designer, rolled up their respective sleeves, and went to work to make their home magnificent. And they did.
Why the Owner Chose Lakeview:
This home is in the center of the Metroplex, close to everything. The French Quarter is 8 minutes by car, City Park, 5 minutes. Fine dining restaurants and local favorites alike are within 5 minutes.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The magical part of this home happens in the late afternoon. We start slowing down about five and agree it's time. Nodding at each other, we kick off our shoes, pour two glasses of wine and head out to the courtyard. The brick wall shades us from the late afternoon sun as we settle into adirondack rockers, doves flit above us. The sound of the gurgling fountain in the background begins to melt away the tension of the day. We chat a bit, read a bit, rock a bit and pour more wine. As the sun sets, the fountain lights come on and the gas lights begin to flicker. After a while, we fix a little dinner and sit at the wrought iron table under the canopy to eat. Songbirds and crickets provide the music. Perhaps a bourbon now. By the time we finally give it up for the night and go to bed, we've solved most of the world's problems. And the ones left over, well, we'll get to those tomorrow evening.
