  • 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!"

  • PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

    "I hesitated in writing this review as I would love to keep it a secret! First, Mike and her husband (and pups) could not be more accommodating. They are so friendly, welcoming and made me feel very comfortable and at home. The only problem is leaving! This will be my go to place to stay when visiting New Orleans if our condo is booked. There would be no hesitation in recommending the cottage to my friends and family...well except selfishness in wanting to keep it "a hidden gem" as the Dallas travel guests called it."

  • Loved it!

    "My husband and I stayed for a long weekend. It was great to live in a cute neighborhood along side the locals. Soooo much better than a hotel. It's just far enough from the touristy areas but only a 10 minute bike ride down Esplanade to the French Quarter. It's a bike friendly city with bike lanes on many of the main roads. We took advantage of that and rode our bikes all around the city. Don't miss riding the path along the Bayou St. John (along side City Park) up to Lake Ponchatrain. It's beautiful and interesting to see the big houses along the bayou. There are grocery stores and restaurants within walking distance just around the corner. Kate the owner was a pleasure to work with. The house is adorable. Lots of artistic touches and well stocked (from towels to plates to cooking needs). Even shampoo and a hair dryer! Don't miss having breakfast on the front porch. We would watch the local activity from the porch every morning like kids being walked to school and the birds being fed by one of the neighbors. The house is a duplex so the front porch is shared with the neighbor (not the bird lady!) Lucky for us because the couple that lives there is so friendly and helpful. We even had a glass of wine with them on the porch one evening. I definitely recommend this house to anyone going to NOLA."
