Great location & house
"We spent four nights in Sully's Sanitarium in November, and really enjoyed our time there. The Bywater is a very cool location to be, the neighbourhood is a mix of beautiful painted homes and some home that could use a bit of care. We have a friend who is a police officer in the FQ, he said the neighbourhood could be a bit rough, so we weren't really sure what to expect... but it was GREAT! Lots of friendly people and you can see that the locals care about it. It's about a 10 minute and $10 cab ride to the French Quarter. Many cool placed within walking distance to eat at; Elizabeth's for home cooked breakfast (mmmm shrimp and grits), Satsuma Cafe is ore of a coffee house but they also serve a good breakfast/lunch, really good pizza from Pizza Delicious (they also delivered to the Sanitarium one night) and a fantastic late night restaurant/bar called Oxalis. We would stay in the area again in a heart beat!
The house is very cool! They have blended funky and classic and modern to make a really unique place to stay. I was surprised that when they said 'full bar' they meant full bar, you are on an honour system to pay for or replace what you drink from the bar. The set up of the bars, living room, dining room and kitchen is ideal. The ceilings have to be around 14 feet high, which make the whole place seem huge. The tv is great, hooked up to a house laptop and we were able to stream Netflix while recovering from out nights of fun. The bedroom are huge, the bathrooms are huge and the beds are very comfortable. Kings size bed in one, a queen in the master, and two beds (under the queen which is lifted about 4 feet off the ground) that we never tested. Lots of linens and towels, shampoo and body shop in the showers and the master has a claw foot tub that is amazing to lounge in!
The hot water takes a while to get going, but that is solved with patience and a glass of wine... however the bathroom in the hall way never did get hot water. I would have called, but the couple that used that bathroom didn't tell me until the end of the trip. Based on how the whole booking process and the house itself, I feel that had I known the problem and contacted Gabriel that he would have taken care of it.
We'd stay here again, in fact while showing pictures on of my friends asked if we could book it for October of 2016. The only question I have for Sully and Gabriel is this... what is up with the "Legalize Goats?" That had us laughing all week!"

"We spent 3 nights at Erin and Kevin's place in October, and we couldn't have been happier with our decision to stay there. The house is renovated, clean and well done, with touches of NOLA everywhere. The neighborhood was perfection. A 10 minute walk in one direction to Frenchman, and in the other direction to the Bywater. It's also just a little ways from the French Quarter if that's what you're looking for. The house is on a street with mostly local residents, and when we arrived, there was a Friday afternoon stoop party next door, which got us right into the NOLA spirit. Erin was incredibly helpful and lovely. We would definitely stay there again on our next visit. Thanks for the great place!"

"My wife and I decided on this great place to spend our anniversary trip to NO. Frankie was easy to deal with from the time we booked all the way through the rental. He answered questions quickly and checked on us to make sure we were enjoying his place and our time in NO. Our flight was delayed so Frankie was unable to meet us when we arrived, but had his very nice friend Brian meet us and show us around.
Location is great with easy access to the French Quarter and other parts of the city. Also very close to Frenchmen St. Nice neighborhood, we always felt safe, day or night. If you like to Uber, it costs us about 6-7 bucks to Jackson Square, although you could walk if you desire. (probably 15 minute walk) If you stay here don't forget to check out some of the places down in Bywater. (opposite direction from the Quarter) Delicious Pizza, Elizabeth's, etc.
We really enjoyed the place. Ceiling fans and lighting throughout the place to make it comfortable and light it up nice. The bed was comfortable, along with extra blankets and pillows if needed. 2 closets for clothes and luggage along with the armoire for extra storage. We enjoyed the sound system and constantly had music playing in the background when we were there. We didn't take full advantage of the kitchen but it had all that was needed. We did use the washer/dryer a couple of times and found it to be helpful. The bathroom is great and has the HUGE shower as most people talk about in other reviews. There is a nice big shower head with lots of hot water. My wife enjoyed the dressing table area for getting ready for days and nights out. Plenty of extra supplies (i.e. toilet paper, paper towels, tissue, etc.)
As others have mentioned street noise, particularly in the morning is an issue. There was some construction on the sidewalk during our stay, but nothing the owner can do about that. Pack your earplugs and you will be good.
My wife commented over and over how it felt nice to come back to what felt like home for a few days. We highly recommend the place and Frankie. You will have a great time!"
