"This was our first trip to NOLA and we were very happy that we chose this house. Rick and Linda were very easy to communicate with and our check in and check out went smoothly. We called Rick when we were leaving the airport and he was waiting at the house for us by the time we got there. We had a tour of the property and went over a few local spots for food, drinks and entertainment. We handed over the cleaning fee and the house was ours.
Check out was easy, too and we got our security deposit back within 3 days of checking out.
The house itself is full of character. If you're looking for pristine, perhaps this is not for you. But if you want a taste of the local ambiance, an interesting history, comfort and convenience this place is perfect. We were a group of 6 (3 couples). There was plenty of room to hang out together as well as enough space for privacy. It is important to note that the 3rd bedroom (on the 3rd floor) has only twin beds and there is no door. You can't see up into that room from the other floors, but sound carries easily. It also gets a bit warmer than the other rooms in the house. The other two bedrooms are of equal size and across the hall from each other on the second floor. Lots of exposed brick and antique-y furniture. You can access the balcony on the 2nd floor from each bedroom as well as the common area between these rooms. The living room is cozy and the kitchen is perfect for a quick breakfast in the morning. I'm sure it's fine for other meals as well, but we didn't really cook (so many great restaurants to try in the area!).
The location is great, less than a five minute walk to Bourbon and Royal streets and less than 10 minutes to Frenchman St. There are also little markets/convenience stores a block or two away.
Since this was our first trip to NOLA, we had no idea how compact the FQ is. I loved that we were so close to food, drinks and entertainment yet were in a quiet spot at the end of the night. There is a great little courtyard with a fountain and we'd usually start and end our days there.
There is a security camera at the front entrance and the gate at the street is locked. We felt very safe.
We were not a rowdy group, but if you want to be partying at the house know that they are strict about keeping noise levels down and not having extra guests. There are plenty of spots nearby to let loose.

"Amazing place to rent with all the amenities (wifi, towels, hair dryer, dishware, etc.). Traveled with six people there was plenty of space for three couples. Rooms had plenty of storage. Overall house was very clean upon arrival (full laundry room in back) House is in walking distance of EVERYTHING (Frenchman Street, French Quarter) and places like Magazine Street or uptown Garden District was a short 10-minute cab ride away or you can take street car. Great restaurants, cafes, and two grocery stores within walking distance. Totally understand why people want to stay outside of French Quarter (too much noise) and this is the perfect spot. Manager was super friendly to work with and made arrival/departure super easy. There were locks/keys for both the front door AND gate to get to the front door which was amazing. Would stay here again!"

Dryades House Is an Excellant Place to Stay In New Orleans!
"Again the location of this rental was perfect for the 4 of us while we were in New Orleans. 3 blocks to streetcar and excellent restaurant within walking distance. The neighbor hood is quiet and safe and there is parking out front. The accommodations were perfect for 2 couples and there is a full kitchen furnished. We had a great time there! Thanks you!"
