"What a lovely spot for us to spend a long weekend... in a beautiful home, in a vibrant neighborhood with easy access to all that New Orleans has to offer. In addition to the description above being accurate, I will add that the patio/deck is the perfect for coffee, wine, and quiet conversation. There were plenty of fluffy towels for everyone. The beds were crazy comfortable - and bedrooms quiet. During a little down time, we enjoyed the premium tv channels. Half a block away was a charming, yummy breakfast/lunch spot: Toast. I am so glad that we chose to stay in this house instead of a premium hotel. We (two couples) were much more comfortable. We'll be back. Hopefully sooner rather than later. And if this house goes on the market, I am going to be first in line to buy it!"Guest: Kathy V. Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: November 11, 2014View listing
"Though we've been to New Orleans multiple times, our stay at this lovely VRBO property made for the most comfy stay ever. The full size, fully equipped kitchen; a super comfortable king bed with crisp, premium sheets; the hot tub; plush robes and more made it feel like home, only better. Great music all up and down Frenchman's Street, right around the corner. This is an unbeatable way to enjoy the French Quarter without the Quarter's noise and crowds."Guest: Fun Foodies Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: December 18, 2014View listing
"The condo was a great home base for our three night stay. You can't beat the location. It was close to many French Quarter sites and restaurants. But best of all, it was close to Frenchman street which we loved. It's all the things you like about French Quarter in just a couple of streets (e.g. great music and food options). Condo is also easy access to the streetcar that runs along the Mississippi. The goods on the condo: 1. LOCATION (per above) 2. Noise level is low. You will get the occasional late night person coming into the building and will hear hardwood door slamming and feet stomping on hardwood stairs. Plus people whooping outside. Overall, we were able to sleep very well especially since the room gets very dark at night. 3. Nicely decorated. However, I wish we had a rug like in the pictures. It's all hardwood in there and would have been nice for the cold mornings. 4. Bed is comfy yet firm. 5. Kitchen is in a small room so you can close the door if you make any food. We didn't, but it was nice to close the door when the fridge would cycle. Wish these were better: 1. It was cold. This is not the condo's fault but if you visit, you will want to know this. The weather was very cold in New Orleans (upper 30's to low 50's). Luckily there were two heaters to warm up the place. There are at least 12' ceilings so it took a while to warm up. 2. No hand soap. There's a soap pump but no soap. You have to buy your own which I found strange but necessary as the owner was away. 3. Need more hooks in the bathroom. It's small but having a few hooks (next to the shower and on the door) would have been helpful for towels and clothes. The shelving is also not the best but manageable if you put a towel down so your stuff doesn't slip through into the toilet. My recommendations for travelers: 1. Ruby Slipper Cafe - Breakfast (it's in an old bank and 4 blocks away near Frenchman) 2. Horn - Breakfast (2 1/2 blocks away) 3. Walk down Royal street and see amazing antiques and art 4. Walk to Frenchman street (3 blocks away) and listen to amazing jazz and impromptu brass bands 5. Cafe Beignet on Royal - great beignets without the wait in a way quainter atmosphere 6. Praline Connection - Fried Chicken 7. Commander's Palace - Friday lunch (if you have the cash) 8. Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop - Oldest bar in NO with strong drinks. The hurricanes were made with fresh juice! 9. Acme Oyster House - You have to get the chargrilled oysters"Guest: Anna L. Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: November 25, 2014View listing
"We spent a wonderful weekend and this house was part of it. We were a group of international friends flying over from different places. The house was just perfect: clean, comfortable, cozy, conveniently located in the best neighborhood of NOLA. All the fun of Frenchmen, the Mint and the French Quarter are just a couple of blocks away. The house has all the comfort and the owner is extremely kind and professional. Will go back for sure!"Guest: Gianluca R. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 30, 2014View 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.

It’s open 24 hours a day seven days a week, and will serve you traditional chickory coffee as well as New Orleans-style beignets, brought to Louisiana by the Acadians. Beignets are square pieces of fried dough covered in powdered sugar and are practically a pastime in NOLA.
Bacchanal Wine bar: This restaurant is known for its laid-back attitude and al fresco dining experience. Enjoy traditional cuisine while listening to live music in the courtyard. Bacchanal is the perfect place to enjoy a great selection of wine, artisanal cheese and charcuterie.
Boucherie: A boucherie is a Cajun tradition with a day full of partying and pig butchery. This restaurant delivers a tribute to this NOLA tradition with Cajun cuisine and a festive atmosphere. All meats are smoked, cured and aged in-house, reflecting the eatery's passion for keeping traditions alive and thriving.
Magazine Street: Beginning near the French Quarter and continuing through the city, Magazine Street is a top location for shopping in New Orleans. With everything from antique and art shops to other sorts of stores, this 6-mile stretch features everything you could want for a day of retail therapy. The shops and galleries along Magazine Street were given a cultural arts tax-free shopping designation as well, so it’s a great place to collect pieces.
