  • Amazing time in NOLA

    "I booked The Lofty Oasis for a six day stay based on the location after conferring with family and friends who know the area. It was a fantastic trip! There are a few things to be aware of with The Lofty Oasis. Not negatives, per se, just things to know before you book. (My husband didn't want me to write this part, but I would rather know the down sides before booking rather than after!) 1. It is really small. The hubs and I are big people, so maybe it seemed that much smaller to us, but it was really small. 2. The bathroom has louvered doors. You're in New Orleans. You're eating spicy foods. You're drinking. If you are someone who needs total privacy when doing your bathroom business, be aware that you can be heard. You need to have a certain level of intimacy if you're sharing this space! 3. The stairs leading up to the Oasis are a little steep and you need to unlock the right side with the key then unlock the slides on the left side to fit yourself and your luggage through the doors. I booked in September, and in December I developed some health issues that made this a challenge for me personally. That being said, there are WAY more positives to the Oasis, and even knowing the above now, I still would book the Oasis for all of the following reasons: 1. Carol. She's wonderful. We arrived Thursday night and didn't see her until Tuesday evening, but we were welcomed warmly. We ran into her on the riverfront as well as on the apartment stairs, and every conversation was warm and friendly. She's a fabulous hostess. 2. The location. I'd never been to NOLA before, and based on what I'd heard, we didn't rent a car. We didn't need one at all. The Oasis is in a safe residential neighborhood right at the end of Bourbon Street where it intersects Esplanade. It's two blocks or so from Frenchmen Street. It's a few blocks from the end of the Riverfront Street Car and the French Market. We walked EVERYWHERE, about 5 to 7 miles a day. It was awesome. 3. Affordability. We would have had to spend double the price for a hotel in this same location. Seriously - can't beat the pricing. 4. Convenience. We'd go back and forth to the apartment several times a day. So easy and much more comfortable than an impersonal hotel. If you are looking for an intimate personal local New Orleans experience, we highly recommend The Lofty Oasis!!!"

  • Location, Leather couch and Great home

    "My wife and I were in NOLA for a convention and absolutely loved this place. We had flight delays and did not arrive til very late and the owner still picked up the phone to assist on our entry. What a great owner! Walk three blocks and you are in the French quarter with one of the best areas to have great food and a multitude of live music every night. We befriended the neighbor hood cat and had a great time. It was nice to come home to the huge leather couch and watch TV before we headed out for the evening. Loved all of the wood floors and counters which go well with the beautiful chandelier. We love to cook and the kitchen was well equipped. We will definitely stay here again next year."

  • Ahhhmazing

    "We really enjoyed our weekend here. Located close to the french quarter. We enjoyed being able to walk to all of our destinations. Parking is on the street, but we were able to find a parking spot very easily and leave our car in that spot the entire weekend. The cottage is very well maintained and clean. I would definitely recommend!"

  • Perfect for my group

    "My group of 12 had an amazing stay at the firehouse! It very roomy for a large group. The space is very unique and well done. The immediate neighborhood is the most up and coming part of the city. Lots of little neighborhood restaurants and bars. It has a very laid back and local feel. We picked the right place for our stay in New Orleans and I would stay again!"
