  • 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!"

  • French Quarter Jazz Festival 2014

    "We were four women driving from Houston to the Jazz Festival for three days and did not want to stay in a hotel. I looked on VRBO and found this property. It looked great and the price was right! Contacted the owner who was extremely helpful. When we arrived we parked the car in the carport and never drove it until we left to go home. We caught the bus at the corner two houses down and rode to the Festival for a dollar. The neighborhood was wonderful and had excellent restaurants within walking distance. Furniture was very pretty and comfortable. We had coffee every morning in the private backyard. I would definitely and have recommended this rental to friends and am looking forward to staying there again! It's charm was so New Orleans! Perfect place to stay!!"

  • 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 "!"

  • A jewel on the Bayou

    "We truly enjoyed our stay at Mojo on Bayou St. John. It is a wonderful home, modern yet still displaying character and charm of the home. It's in a great location and we were very comfortable there. Our boys loved the backyard and picking blackberries from the garden just made their morning. It certainly made a differnce to have essetial grocery items available in the kitchen. There are family owned grocery stores nearby and the community coffee shops are perfect for a morning chat or open mic session in the evening. The neighbors were very nice and so were the ducks from the bayou. We felt part of the community and it was great to get away from the business of the touristy areas. We traveled with our two young boys and it was great to have City Park across the street. We even ventured into the canoe that is left for guest use. I am not sure how easy it would be to travel from this location without a car. There is a street car stop closeby, but if you are visiting areas outside of that route, it could take a while to get there. I would recommend this home and when visiting New Orleans, I will certainly look to stay here again."
