Sweet Property in Excellent Location
"This property is exactly as depicted.
1.) Owner was gracious and very easy to work with. We booked at last minute and then had to push out another day. Sidney was great. We are frequent visitors to NOLA so we did not need him to meet us, but his apartment had maps and local magazines that were helpful.
2.) CLEAN!!! This place was very clean with several high quality towels and bed linens.
3.) Location. This home is about fifty steps off Magazine Street which is filled for miles in each direction with restaurants, eateries, quaint shops, etc. The bus that you can catch on the corner takes you to French Quarter and back from early morning to late at night. Very convenient if you don't have a car. We have always stayed in French Quarter before for several years, but this place will be our new go-to.
4.) Well appointed. Everything you might need is in the apartment-wine glasses, coffee mugs, etc. However, note that you might not find everything you want or need to prepare a large meal, but who comes to NOLA to eat at home anyway?
The only negative (and this really didn't bother us but it might bother others) was that the home is quite old in a beautiful section of the Garden District, and with that patina of age you get an old bathtub. This one was rusted and in need or re-coating. Again, not a big deal to us, but some might find it so.
WE can't wait to come back!"

"Casabianca is a beautiful and charming apartment, wonderfully located to shop, eat and catch public transportation to go to all of the major sights in New Orleans. We loved staying there. While Magazine Street is busy and definitely not quiet, simply close the window to the deck and you won't really notice the traffic noise. Head to the bedroom - with a really comfortable bed - and you won't hear any traffic noise at all.
We really enjoyed bringing prepared food in from Big Fisherman, just a short bus ride away - very very good and inexpensive. Other restaurants we enjoyed near the apartment were Charcoals, De Ville Coffee House and Creperie and Juan's Flying Burrito. Farther afield, Cochon was marvelous and the restaurant at the World War II museum was very good as well. We also enjoyed Casamentos (great fried seafood, gluten free) farther down Magazine and the Acme Oyster Bar in the Quarter.
Don't miss the sculpture garden at the Art Museum - very wonderful and a lovely setting. We enjoyed the aquarium and the zoo but our favorite was the World War II museum - we were there over 6 hours and enjoyed every minute.
While we enjoyed all that New Orleans had to offer, we loved having Casabianca to come home to for rest and relaxation. The pictures do not do it justice - as others have said, it really is better than the pictures. We heartily give it a 5 star rating."

"We highly recommend this place! We stayed for 2 months and would easily come back to this rental in the future. The owners are friendly, accommodating and responsible. The place itself is clean, fully furnished and is in the best location in New Orleans, which gave us a stunningly beautiful Garden District living experience. Thank you to the owners who made our trip such an enjoyable one!"

"I was here for my sister's bachelorette party, and we had the BEST stay. The home was super clean and so much bigger than we thought it would be! Since it's summer, it was very hot, but the three-story home felt cold on each level, which felt amazing. The location was perfect with cute retail shops and restaurants right within walking distance, which we took advantage of. The owner was super friendly and accommodating and we could not have asked for more. I would highly, highly recommend this home. You're still within a five-minute cab ride of the French Quarter, and have a neighborhood atmosphere around you."
