"This huge beautiful house could not have been more perfect for our Mardi Gras celebration. Kim was great and the location perfect. Plenty of space for 18 of us we could have had more. The house was clean beautifully furnished with comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms."Guest: cynthia t. Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: March 8, 2014View listing
"The description and photos accurately reflect the property and it's amenities. The arrival and departure instructions were very clear. The location 3 blocks from the St.Charles streetcar was ideal. We would definitely stay again if the opportunity presented itself."Guest: Greg from Austin Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 7, 2014View listing
"My husband and I stay here for fours nights and had a blast. This is such a wonderful place to stay. We lived on the balcony. We had coffee in the mornings it was great. Close to everything. We love that the store down on the next block was open 24 hours. It was also our 11th year marriage anniversary. My honey made breakfast for me. Walked to Mimi's that night for drinks.A great place to go that is three blocks down is a place called Buffa's and the Port of Call had good food too. Planning our next trip already:)"Guest: Red Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 11, 2014View listing
"A group of 6 of us stayed in the Creole Cottage for Halloween weekend. The cottage was very clean and actually more spacious than the pictures show. The owner Don, left bottles of water in the fridge upon our arrival which I think was a nice touch. The property was conveniently walking distance to all the places we wanted to go including Frenchman's Street. There are also several restaurants and bars nearby that you can walk to. The one thing that made me reduce a star however, is that the listing fails to mention that the owner lives in the apartment attached to the cottage. I would have liked to have that information prior to renting. While Don was very nice and accommodating we did have an incidence one night where someone from our party left the downstairs bathroom fan on causing the owner disruption. If you don't mind renting a property where the owner is on the premise I would definitely recommend this property. It was very charming and well kept."Guest: skheraj Date of Stay: October 2013 Review Submitted: November 13, 2013View listing
