  • Perfect

    "Just got back Monday, our first trip to New Orleans and we can not wait to go back. The condo was perfect and steps away from everything you would want to see and do in a long weekend. Thank you for sharing this great condo, so much better then any hotel!"

  • The best!

    "Oh, where do I begin? First, Melissa and Gerri, were the nicest landlords. They were there if we had questions, and very nice if we happened to run into them. We would love to sit down and have a drink with them to hear their New Orleans stories! Maybe our next trip ;). We are quite experienced with VRBO, having used it as our only way to vacation travel for at least 10 years. This was the best so far. Mind you, we have never had a bad rental experience, but this was beyond our expectations. It has everything going for it, location, amenities, owners that live in the same building, an interior designer and glass artist owners, the list goes on.... The apartment is BEAUTIFUL! We have never stayed at a place that was so well stocked, from hair dryers, tea and coffee, electrical outlets EVERYWHERE, premium cable, dishes, linens, etc. Our only complaint was that our stuff totally polluted the beauty of the apartment. The location couldn't be any better. We enjoyed walking the neighborhood among the Garden District Mansions as well as the local restaurants and shops. We could take the bus out front to downtown or the French Quarter as well as the St Charles street car a few blocks away. Below are a few tours, and places we highly recommend. Taxi, we figured out that it is much better to get to know a specific Taxi Driver rather than a company. A Much more reliable way to taxi. We highly recommend Kirkpatrick Singleton of White Fleet Taxi. He calls to confirm and always arrived a little early so you wouldn't wonder if you were getting stood up. His number is: (504) 450-4570, email K_singleton@hotmail.com. Tours: 1. Tours by Isabelle for plantation and swamp tours is fantastic. They will even pick you up at the apartment. They have a website. We would totally do the swamp tour again. 2. Bullfrog Bicycle Tours in the French quarter. This is an excellent way to see many of the neighborhoods in the city and learn a lot of local history. It is easy riding. 3. Haunted History Tours- one of their tours is in the Garden District neighborhood. It was fun learning about the mansions that we had been admiring all week on our walks. 4. World War II museum- this is a thirty minute walk down magazine street, or you can take public transport. It is worth the visit. Thank you, Melissa and Gerri, for making our vacation so memorable. We miss New Orleans already."

  • Wonderful!

    "This property is fantastic. Four of us stayed at the house which is far less than it can hold. I would say it can sleep 6 very comfortably. The house was recently remodeled and was done first class. Easy walking distance to the Street Car line and cabs are plentiful. Tons of bars and restaurants very close by. Would definitely stay there again."

  • Summer in the City - GREAT location!

    "I had the pleasure of staying at this location for six weeks this summer - longer than the owners are used to, but they were very accommodating and helpful. The house is clean & comfortable. The kitchen has a huge refrigerator, plenty of utensils. The bathroom is small, but larger than mine at home. Shower and tub are delightful. The bedrooms are nice sizes. The beds, oh the beds. They are A-MA-ZING!! They are the most comfortable beds I’ve ever had the privilege to sleep in. Just be aware that you might feel the beds shake a bit when the trains and boats are loading or moving over on the Mississippi. Completely caught me off guard the first night!! Oh, and the AC is a blessing in the blistering heat of the summer. I was very thankful for the quick internet as it helped me keep in touch with family. I also had blogging to keep up with during the six weeks. Additionally, there are three televisions equipped with Dish network which was very nice (we only have antennae channels at home!). I had been to New Orleans a couple times before, staying weekends before or after taking cruises out of the city. Both times I stayed in the Garden District. This property is just outside of the Garden District. Even though I drove down from Indiana, I very rarely used my car as the driving and parking are a bit crazy. I had absolutely no problems with having my car parked in front of the house. There are two bus stops rather close – one is a block away, the other about 4 blocks away. I used both quite often and was pleased with how clean the buses were kept. I felt comfortable riding alone. Both bus lines take you to Canal Street and the French Quarter. Hansen’s Snowballs are a few blocks away and they truly are delicious. There may be long lines though. I think the longest I waited was 45 minutes, but when the temps are in the 90’s a snowball really hits the spot. There are three grocery stores within 5 minutes or so (by car). Dozens of restaurants in the area. One of my favorites was Frankie and Johnny’s. The owners are very good at communicating with their renters. They were a phone call or text away and fixed any problem that came up. There was never a time while in NOLA that I felt unsafe or uncomfortable. Neighbors in the area are all very friendly. I was very pleased with this location for my six weeks in New Orleans and would be very likely to rent the same location again. Thanks, Enzo and David!!!!!"

Louisiana Travel Tips

Visitors to Louisiana House Rentals

Most visitors to Louisiana are attracted by the great weather and festive atmosphere of New Orleans. The home of Jazz, New Orleans has a rich musical and cultural heritage. Enjoy performances in the many bars and cafés in the French Quarter. Louisiana also has a rich historical heritage and those who enjoy browsing museums will have many sites and exhibits to choose from.

Festive and Historic Attractions at Louisiana Condos

Perhaps Louisiana’s best-known attraction is the mighty Mississippi River. Many a legend and tale has been told of the river and the personalities that have sailed her fast flowing waters. Steamboats once provided transportation for both cargo and passengers into the interior of the United States. Today, only a handful of tourist steam boats remain. The Steamboat Nachez is an authentic steamboat and the ninth to carry its name. The Nachez runs regular day trips up the Mississippi from New Orleans. The World War Two Museum in New Orleans has some fascinating exhibits and personal accounts from soldiers and people involved in the war.

The French Quarter is possibly one of the city's most famous landmarks. It is the site of the festive Mardi Gras which takes place each year. Here, you can enjoy great food, entertainment and culture in a number of interesting cafés and restaurants. About 30 miles north of New Orleans, you will find the small town of Abita Springs. It is here that a brewery was founded in 1986. Abita Beer is widely known and enjoyed throughout the region. In the northern parts of Louisiana, you will find the towns of Ruston and Monroe. Monroe is the home to the Louisiana Purchase Garden and Zoo. This historical and recreational site is great for visiting with the family. The North Louisiana Military Museum is located in Ruston. The museum showcases more than 150 years of military history.

Best Seasons to Visit Louisiana

Located on the Gulf of Mexico Louisiana receives both the best and worst of the Gulf's weather. In the late summer months, New Orleans and the low lying coastal regions are often battered by hurricanes and tropical storms. However, don’t let this deter you from visiting as the hurricane incidents are isolated and usually storm warnings are sent out in advance. For most of the year, Louisiana has a consistent subtropical climate. New Orleans is recorded as having 60 percent sunshine all year long. With its location on the coastal floodplain, the daily temperature variations are not large. This changes the further inland you travel. While winters can be cold up north with occasional snowfalls, it rarely drops below freezing in the south.
