    "This house was perfectly located for all our explorations. It was very clean and simply and well furnished. Could use lots more coat hangers!"

  • Awesome!

    "I very rarely write reviews for anything on the web but I felt compelled after our recent stay. Brent and Bobby have an amazing property! Bobby was the contact for the booking and I spoke to Brent when it got closer to the date of arrival. Brent showed us around the property when we arrived and did a great job of explaining the area and making us feel at home. Prime location as you are only a couple of blocks away from Bourbon Street at this location. We also felt very safe during our stay. Highly highly recommend this property! Perfect place for a bachelor or bachelorette party. I would not recommend to families but I also wouldn’t recommend New Orleans for families (go to Disney instead)."

  • House of Mirth

    "Six of us recently stayed at the House of Mirth for a New Orleans bachelor weekend. We couldn't have picked a better place. The house was in a fantastic location and just a 10 minute ($1.25) street car ride to the French quarter. The neighborhood was very unique with all of the amenities and excellent restaurants nearby (Katie's was amazing). Not once did we feel unsafe. Elizabeth (owner) was very helpful and provided us with some excellent insight on the surrounding area. Everything about the house was exactly as described. Needless to say " The House of Mirth exceeded our expectations "!"

  • Clean Quiet Fun

    "Clean, Quiet, Quaint. Great alternative to French Quarter options with an authentic NOLA feel. Easy access to Canal St and Quarter during ferry hours. Uptown, Garden District was a cinch to get to via car and the bridge is free. Taxi driver was happy to take us back one night though needed some help navigating the one ways in the neighborhood. Closest groceries might actually be French Quarter...that's what we did. Not 100% on that though. At least two local pubs frequented by few (if any) tourists. At least one great cafe down to the street serving espresso and breakfast. Water is hot, A/C is cold, parking is free and the owner is responsive and easy to work with."

New Orleans is famously known as the Birthplace of Jazz and attracts plenty of foodies and revelers due to Creole cuisine as well as partiers for over-the-top celebrations like Mardi Gras.You'll be hard-pressed to find another locale in the country quite like NOLA.

Whether you’re looking to taste a bowl of traditional gumbo, sway to the music in a late night jazz club or explore New Orleans’ diverse neighborhoods, there is plenty to experience throughout the city.

Things to do in New Orleans

French Quarter: Locals and tourists alike appreciate the French Quarter. This area of the city features stunning architecture as well as many museums, art galleries, bars and restaurants relating back to the the city’s French heritage. The French Quarter is an ideal area to explore the culture and history of NOLA. This area of the city, which is mostly closed to road traffic year-round, not only displays influences from France but from Spanish, Creole and Cajun backgrounds as well, creating a fascinating blend of international flare you won't find anywhere else. New Orleans also has above-ground cemeteries, and just steps from the French Quarter, you can take a guided tour of the old St. Louis Cemetery where voodoo queen Marie Laveau rests, along with other famous residents.

Bourbon Street: The French Quarter is also home the famous Bourbon Street - one of the most favorited thoroughfares for partiers. This booze-soaked street extends 13 blocks with a reputation for fantasy and fun due to the infamous cabarets and open-air bars. Bourbon Street is steeped in city history that brings forth folklore dating back to the 1700s. Some favorite stops along the street include Jean Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop -- which is considered by many to be the oldest watering hole in the country. There’s also the Old Absinthe House where visitors can still partake in the now illegal libation substituted with Herbsaint.

Mardi Gras: Chances are if you are visiting New Orleans, you are looking to party at Mardi Gras - and we don't blame you. This extravagant festival features parades, floats, music, beads and excitement circling around purple, gold and green colors. During Mardi Gras roads shut down and everyone walks around the city, making new friends and enjoying the celebratory experience. People dress up in wild costumes and the city lets loose to have a great time!

New Orleans Museum of Art: This art museum is New Orleans' oldest fine arts establishment, opening in 1911 with only nine pieces of work. Since then the museum has grown and expanded to become host to a fascinating collection of almost 40,000 masterpieces. French and American art are standouts here, but the museum also features glass, photography and African and Japanese works. The New Orleans Museum of Art is also home to the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, one of the most important sculpture installations in the U.S. More than 60 sculptures rise up along paths and lagoons here.

Dining and shopping in New Orleans

Cafe du Monde: For the perfect NOLA breakfast, stop at Cafe du Monde in the French Market. It’s open 24 hours a day seven days a week, and will serve you traditional chickory coffee as well as New Orleans-style beignets, brought to Louisiana by the Acadians. Beignets are square pieces of fried dough covered in powdered sugar and are practically a pastime in NOLA.

Bacchanal Wine bar: This restaurant is known for its laid-back attitude and al fresco dining experience. Enjoy traditional cuisine while listening to live music in the courtyard. Bacchanal is the perfect place to enjoy a great selection of wine, artisanal cheese and charcuterie.

Boucherie: A boucherie is a Cajun tradition with a day full of partying and pig butchery. This restaurant delivers a tribute to this NOLA tradition with Cajun cuisine and a festive atmosphere. All meats are smoked, cured and aged in-house, reflecting the eatery's passion for keeping traditions alive and thriving.

Magazine Street: Beginning near the French Quarter and continuing through the city, Magazine Street is a top location for shopping in New Orleans. With everything from antique and art shops to other sorts of stores, this 6-mile stretch features everything you could want for a day of retail therapy. The shops and galleries along Magazine Street were given a cultural arts tax-free shopping designation as well, so it’s a great place to collect pieces.
