  • Charming Double in a Great Neighborhood

    "This was our first trip to New Orleans, and we wanted something more unique than a hotel/motel. I found this property on VRBO, and was immediately intrigued. In all honesty, the price caught my attention before all else. It wasn't until we got there that we realized just how amazing the price really was. We were pleased with the house from the moment we pulled up. The neighborhood is inviting, and the house is something we don't commonly see where we're from. When you walk in, you immediately understand what a shotgun is. Each room leads to the next in a flowing fashion. Both parlor rooms were sizable and accommodating. There are two twin-sized day beds, one in each of the first two parlors. In the bedroom, there is a queen-sized, 4-post, Victorian-style bed. My wife and I won the coin toss, and were awarded the bed. There is a memory foam mattress top that makes it one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in. Careful, it's very high - something we are not used to. The bathroom is...well...a bathroom. It has a toilet, sink, and shower, and is stocked with plenty of towels. The kitchen is simple. It does include a refrigerator, microwave, and toaster oven. There is also a hotplate burner for a single pot/pan meal. Of course there is a sink for cleaning up after yourself. There is a coffee pot, but we found it unusable. For two reasons really: 1) someone had left the warmer on, and the glass urn had crystallized, and 2) the coffee shop was just too close and good. Our only suggestion would be a little more/comfortable seating room. The only furniture are the 3 beds, a small chair, and 4 or 5 kitchen-table style chairs. While we didn't spend much time in the house, when we were there, the 4 of us played musical chairs, alternating to stay comfortable. After a long day of walking to the FQ and all around town, we just wanted to relax. This "issue" was minimal, and would never keep us from staying here again. The location is perfect. It's in Mid-City, about 1.5 miles north of the French Quarter. We stayed in the area quite a bit, dining at Liuzza's and having drinks at Pal's. On our second day, we walked - that's right, walked - to the French Quarter. It's pretty much a straight shot down there. At no point did we ever feel unsafe; however, we probably wouldn't make the trek during the nighttime hours. Gary was a gracious host, and very welcoming. If you are looking for an authentic experience, this is it!"

  • 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 "!"

  • Great place!

    "Our family of 4 loved staying here. Next to lots of great places. We loved the coffee shop around the corner (Fair Grinds Coffee House). Our two small kids had a great time. When we arrived, there was a large air bed that looked like it converted to a little couch blown up for us already. The kids slept on that. We slept on the spacious king bed in the next room. The neighbors next door are also super friendly. We would definitely come back and stay here. The only thing young families should look out for is the fact that the place is on the second level, and the railings on the balcony are quite low. So anyone could easily fall over the railings. We kept a close watch on the kids if they stepped outside."
