                We spent a fantastic week in the French Quarter in this marvelous house. I was there with my two teenage daugthers to do volunteer work in the 9th Ward. It was so lovely to come home to such a clean, charming, perfectly located house. The beds are so comfortable, we could hardly get out of them in the mornings. And the noise from the bar next door did not bother us at all. I can't wait to go back! Cile and Gregg are great owners and even immediately FedExed a backpack we left behind.

                We celebrated my husband's 40th with a 3 night stay. We're regulars to NOLA, and this was our favorite trip yet, and our best experience with using VRBO. Cile thinks of everything and was a delight to rent from. The location is PERFECT and central to all of our favorite places in the quarter.

                Great front row seat for the French Quarter from the balcony! The condo was exactly as portrayed on the website. The condo was extremely comfortable from the beds to the furniture. Cile and Gregg went beyond being gracious hosts, meeting us on a very busy Sunday in the French Quarter, helping with our luggage and taking time to get to know us and explain what we needed to know about the condo and the French Quarter. Fully furnished including wine, bottled water and chocolates bedside. You will not need to purchase any of the normal staples including coffee. Great for couples and plenty of room for 4-5 people. The location is perfect. We did not get in the car for our four day stay.

                This condo is outstanding in every way! Cile and Gregg have thought of everything, fresh flowers, bottle of wine and even bottled water in the fridge! We were 2 couples staying here and had plenty of room. The balcony was a great place to hang out with some cocktails before dinner, ya never know what you might see!! Thanks again Cile for working with our departure time. We cannot wait to stay in your perfect home again!! You and Gregg are truly wonderful people!!!

                We can't add anything to the comments below. This property was exceptional, our hosts went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and convenience. There was plenty of room for two couples, the rooms were immaculate, decor was beautifully New Orleans style and living in a 200 year old home was a treat. After using VRBO for nearly 10 years, we have never stayed at a nicer property or with nicer hosts.

                Hubby & I are 40s-50s. We’ve spent lots of time in the city. This home is the finest we’ve stayed in. Its rich history is honored through renovation & upkeep. As I type, I’m sitting in the cobbled courtyard surrounded by warm wall-lantern light. Our time has conjured our imaginations as to what life was like for those that once called this gorgeous space home. Historic structures often provide inconveniences.. room size, doorways, baths.. Not this one! 3 baths, 2 large bdrms (+ a nap nook & pull-out sofa), 2 balconies, roomy spaces that remind you of what’s been & provide you with modern comforts. The flow is soothing, period-appropriate & perfect. Beds & Baths: Best night’s sleep we’ve had. Super mattresses & bedding. Forget something? The owners have thought of that & provided it. 1 reviewer mentioned limited space in the 2nd bath. I found plenty of room beside the sink for toiletries. Kitchen: Wonderful! Great bar area. With shutters open, we spend a lot of time there being entertained by passers-by. The TV is in the perfect spot for viewing from the bar. Living Areas: As is traditional, the centerpiece is a fireplace. It is a great gathering space. A previous reviewer complained of no TV. I wouldn’t think of putting one here. The room has a historical feel. A TV would dirty the ambiance. The parlor is where we go to grab a cocktail from the minibar & relax to enjoy a show. But with all the city’s offerings, finding time for TV is tough. The master bdrm also offers a TV. Balconies & Noise: The back balcony is a great way to start the day with peace & privacy. The street-side balcony is enormous. to the right is Bourbon Street.. to the left is Jackson Square. This location is fantastic. No noise issues for us. The house is over-equipped with sound machines & ear plugs for light sleepers. We’ve slept soundly. The Owners: Cile & Gregg are the best stewards of property I’ve encountered. They met us on arrival, provided amenities far beyond the norm, offered a myriad of tips on dining, shopping, etc. & begged of us to contact them if the slightest issue arose. This has been the trip of a lifetime. It’s a true New Orleans experience. We don’t want to leave, but will return! From all the city offers to the amenities that Cile & Gregg provide, you’ll feel New Orleans within yourself & that’s something that can’t be explained but is worth experiencing. This is the 1st review I’ve ever written that didn’t include needs for improvement. There simply aren't any.

                My friend of 40+ years and I just returned from our annual "girls get away" vacation this year in NOLA and we stayed in this house. This house was PERFECT for what we wanted! It was just a couple of blocks to Cafe Du Monde for beignets (on more than on occasion) and a few blocks to Jackson Square. The lower end of NOLA is very accessible from this location and we really liked that. There was a snafu with our arrival - they had mistaken double-booked their house for the first three days - but they worked it out by putting us in the adjoining house (which was wonderful, too) and moving all of our stuff over while we were out and about. Cile and Greg are really great hosts who have taken great care to see that this is truly your home away from home. Although we didn't open them, the shuttered front doors was a great option to have. They provide the basics so we didn't have to worry about running out and getting those things - a great convenience. The balcony was great for people watching at night - you're just one building away from Bourbon Street so we saw LOTS of action from our little perch and from the people who used the bar balcony next door. You do hear the thumping from the bar next door - which went on into the wee hours of the morning, of course - but it really didn't bother me as I'm used to noise at night. They do provide ear plugs and white-noise machines for those who might need them! There is a nice living room/sitting area downstairs but we didn't use it much because we wanted to be able to watch TV and the only tv is a smaller one on the kitchen wall and wasn't really visible from the sitting/living area (being middle-aged with glasses didn't help either). The upstairs sitting area is small but it does have a TV and wet bar area with a refrigerator. The downstairs didn't get a lot of use from us since there were only two. It would be a great gathering place for larger groups. The second bedroom doesn't have a TV, which isn't a big deal if children sleep in there but it would have been nice to have one to watch (as an adult sleeping in that room). There wasn't any space to put things in the bathroom that is off the second bedroom so I ended up using the FULL downstairs bathroom, which was well appointed. The only drawback was having to travel up and down the stairs. Cile and Greg were only a phone call away and responded promptly when I called them a couple of times. We also felt very safe! Definitely recommend staying here

                This was our home away from home. Aside from being a gorgeous,clean condo, Cile and Gregg are the most gracious hosts. Not only were they very accomodating to our ever changing flight schedules, they really put a lot into the small details (fresh flowers, wine, water). We felt so very welcome and did not want to leave. The condo is situated perfectly, within walking distance to everything New Orleans has to offer. I whole heartedly recommend this property. Can't wait to visit again.

                As the other reviewer has stated... stop looking! This condo is beautifully decorated, in a perfect location, has an amazing large balcony, and is extremely clean and comfortable. Not to mention the owners are beyond accommodating and hospitable.. Cile & Gregg. Our flight times (arrival & departure) were changed and they allowed us to drop off our luggage early and keep it there late- a gesture that we were so grateful for. Cile & Gregg are amazing people and they strive to make their guests stay one that will not soon be forgotten. We are already talking about returning! We were a party of 5, two couples and a friend and the space was perfect. Having 3 full bathrooms was a huge bonus. We relaxed on the large balcony each night (and whenever we got a chance!) to have a drink and people watch- you are able to see bourbon street from balcony. This is a gorgeously decorated house and it really felt like home as soon as we entered. At the end of our trip, it was really hard to leave as well!! I have to admit, it is scary sending a check to someone for a house that you have not seen- but trust me.. this vacation rental is one that you will not be disappointed with. I HIGHLY recommend this rental property. We had not one complaint, and Cile & Gregg have made this rental experience the best we have ever had- Thanks!

                This condo far exceeded my expectations. The pictures just can't show you how beautiful this property really is. The attention to detail was amazing as well. From the fully stocked kitchen to the chocolates for each bedroom, we didn't want for anything. It was extremely clean as well which is very important to me as I am a bit of a neat freak! As far as location goes, I don't know that it gets any better. The balcony overlooking the corner of Bourbon Street provided the perfect spot to people watch. We were close to everything and never once drove our car after we arrived. And the owners were absolutely amazing! They were so warm and friendly and gave us tons of information on where to eat, visit, etc. Do not hesitate to rent this property. You wont be sorry! Make sure you visit 801 Royal while you are there. We spent lots of time there eating and drinking. Staff was amazing and you must try the seafood nachos and fried green tomatoes. Another place we tried for breakfast was The Market Café on Decatur Street. If you are looking for a delicious breakfast bar, this place has it. Again, I can stress enough how much we enjoyed our stay at this fabulous condo. Cant wait to come back and stay again!
