"I searched around for quite a while before settling on this property for my NOLA writer's getaway. I wanted something located in a neighborhood that would allow me to experience the city as if I were a resident and I was not disappointed. I relied mostly on transit and it was a snap getting around to the other parts of the city but when I didn't want to go anywhere there are more than enough amenities within a five-minute walk that I didn't feel like I was making a sacrifice by staying "near home."
Also, the house was a lot like home. Very comfortable for me, roomy, and at night it was quiet so I could conk right out. I've stayed in some places that were bare bones where the kitchen and bathroom were concerned but that is NOT the case here. There were condiments and spices and plenty of towels, more than I could ever use from my week-long stay. If you do stay here, though, you must tug on the little spout on the underside of the bathtub faucet to get the shower to run. That's a fixture I'd never encountered before.
I hated to leave but having stayed at the Fest Nest I am looking forward to coming back."

"My boyfriend and I LOVED our stay at the Cottage. It is spacious, clean, comfortable, quiet, and situated close to everything. It is 10-15 minutes from the French Quarter, and ONE BLOCK from the Bayou. The neighborhood is gorgeous and safe. Mike Baffes is warm and sweet.
I will definitely be staying here again!"

"As a host for a bachelorette party of 7 girls, I was in charge of finding the perfect house for our group, and it was indeed perfect. I live in the bayou st.john (mid-city) neighborhood, and I would still want to stay in this home again because it's so beautiful! The beds are extremely comfortable, the porch is charming, and it is a very short walk to the grocery store and streetcar route. Also, the owners left us wine and snacks which was some lovely lagniappe. Communication between the owners was very timely. All of us girls had the best weekend in this spacious home! Thank you so much!!"

"This location was perfectly situated! We were close enough to everything but out of the hubbub. We got to all the activity we selected and the places we wanted to see without any difficulty. It was a nice & quiet area so we could just relax and enjoy ourselves while getting caught up. No early morning disruptions or late night noise. We all agreed that it was just the right location and place.
Our suggestions to improve are very small things... It would be nice if the kitchen faucet were fixed. We think it needs a washer. When you run the faucet, water splashes all over. Also, it would have been nice to have a hook in the downstairs bathroom and upgrade to the information book to include restaurant menus and grocery stores nearby."
