Recent New Orleans reviews
"We stayed here with friends for five nights in May and absolutely loved it. The house has so much character, and everything is in excellent condition (the kitchen is fantastic, and fully equipped with any appliance or tool you might need). We spent a LOT of time on the patio and in the hot tub. A few of the reviews questioned the neighborhood, but we saw no reason to worry at all. We walked to and from the Quarter, Frenchmen Street, Marigny and Bywater at all hours of the day and night. It's a decent walk to the French Quarter, about a mile, but there are several ways to get there and they're all interesting. (You can also pick up a 3-day transit pass for a mere $9, and there are at least two bus stops nearby.) Our friends had a car for a couple days, and had no trouble finding parking out front on the street. If you're looking to get away from the insanity of Bourbon Street while still being able to visit it any time you want, this is a great location. We will absolutely stay again next time we're in NOLA."Guest: Jenni K. Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 15, 2014View listing
"Very cute little place! It was clean and charming with the convenience of being near all the places we wanted to see in New Orleans. It was more comfortable than a hotel, more affordable and more convenient. When we come back we hope the place is available it was a nice stay."Guest: Kelsey F.

"This home has to be one of my favorite VRBO rentals! We have been using VRBO for many years. There were five couples in our group. Every September we get together and decide on our annual vacation location. We chose New Orleans, which turned out to be one of our best so far. The photos of this home are quite stunning, but once inside we were simply amazed!! So spacious, and perfect for a couples getaway. The amenities made our stay quite comfortable. The area is very peaceful and secure, which definitely made our stay even more comfortable. The drive into New Orleans was so very easy. There were times when it took only 10 minutes to get into the French Quarter. If you enjoy the comforts of lots of space, privacy, and total relaxation, this is definitely one amazing home to consider. We are already thinking of making New Orleans our next annual vacation:), and no doubt hope to stay once again in this lovely home."Guest: Courtney Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 26, 2014View listing
"We just left the Mehle house - had to travel to New Orleans for a family funeral during Thanksgiving week. This home made for a cozy, relaxing gathering place for our family. We were so much more comfortable than staying in a hotel, and were able to provide meals for our family-in-need. The gardens were beautiful to walk thru, and a nice distraction for our visitors. Nick was more than gracious, and tended to any needs we had. He didn't hesitate to accommodate our pets, since it was way too late to get boarding on short notice. Overall as good of an experience you can have under trying circumstances. I'm sure the beautiful pool & gardens would be spectacular fun during the warmer months. Which is almost nine months out of the year in New Orleans!! One last note - perfect location! No more than 15 min's drive to most any area you want to visit, WITHOUT the noise & excessiveness of staying downtown or in the Quarter. Big thanks to Nick for his hospitality & lovely home!"Guest: Cynthia G. Date of Stay: November 2013 Review Submitted: November 28, 2013View listing

Things to do in New Orleans
French Quarter: Locals and tourists alike appreciate the French Quarter. This area of the city features stunning architecture as well as many museums, art galleries, bars and restaurants relating back to the the city’s French heritage. The French Quarter is an ideal area to explore the culture and history of NOLA. This area of the city, which is mostly closed to road traffic year-round, not only displays influences from France but from Spanish, Creole and Cajun backgrounds as well, creating a fascinating blend of international flare you won't find anywhere else. New Orleans also has above-ground cemeteries, and just steps from the French Quarter, you can take a guided tour of the old St. Louis Cemetery where voodoo queen Marie Laveau rests, along with other famous residents.
Bourbon Street: The French Quarter is also home the famous Bourbon Street - one of the most favorited thoroughfares for partiers. This booze-soaked street extends 13 blocks with a reputation for fantasy and fun due to the infamous cabarets and open-air bars. Bourbon Street is steeped in city history that brings forth folklore dating back to the 1700s. Some favorite stops along the street include Jean Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop -- which is considered by many to be the oldest watering hole in the country. There’s also the Old Absinthe House where visitors can still partake in the now illegal libation substituted with Herbsaint.
Mardi Gras: Chances are if you are visiting New Orleans, you are looking to party at Mardi Gras - and we don't blame you. This extravagant festival features parades, floats, music, beads and excitement circling around purple, gold and green colors. During Mardi Gras roads shut down and everyone walks around the city, making new friends and enjoying the celebratory experience. People dress up in wild costumes and the city lets loose to have a great time!
New Orleans Museum of Art: This art museum is New Orleans' oldest fine arts establishment, opening in 1911 with only nine pieces of work. Since then the museum has grown and expanded to become host to a fascinating collection of almost 40,000 masterpieces. French and American art are standouts here, but the museum also features glass, photography and African and Japanese works. The New Orleans Museum of Art is also home to the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, one of the most important sculpture installations in the U.S. More than 60 sculptures rise up along paths and lagoons here.
