"From the charming grounds to the clean, well-equipped unit . . . and from the friendly and helpful property manager to the festive and welcoming holiday lights . . . everything about Lanata was exceptional. One additional bonus for us was the close proximity to Frenchman Street, where a short three-block walk put us right into the heart of a two-block-long stretch of live music every night. Terrific! Thanks for everything, Bob."Guest: Ramona F. Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: December 14, 2014View listing
"The property is just as it appears. It is in a great location if you like exploring. We parked our cars on the street and did not move them the entire stay. There were 7 in our party 4 adults and 3 children and there was plenty of room for us. We stayed 5 nights and 4 days and it was an amazing vacation. I would not recommend walking at night from the location to the FQ. We did that 1 night and it was interesting. We walked everywhere from the location during the day and had no problems but we would taxi back and forth after dark. Taxis about $10 each way. Just be aware you are in a big city be aware of your surroundings! As another review said it is loud, because of a busy street just outside the property but its NO it adds character to your story. During MG they take the floats right down St Claude to their home and you get a birds eye view of everything. The property has its quirks but its a older and what older home doesn't. It has a lot of stairs as soon as you walk in the door and not much of a landing at the bottom so you have to go straight up with all your luggage and other personals. I noticed a problem with the amount of hot water but again character quirks. I love NO and will go back every chance we get and would stay at the property again given the opportunity."Guest: TX mom 2 boys Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: July 23, 2014View listing
"We decided against turkey this year and chose to see what alternative foods we could find in New Orleans with our family, three generations represented. The home was wonderful and every detail was well represented in VRBO. Our eighty eight year old mother loved her room on the first floor. The four month old, 20 month old, mom and dad enjoyed their two room suite and we enjoyed our suite as well. We found the court yard to be charming and a great place to gather after a day on the town. Meyer Lemon tree there for our lemon drop martinis was a huge PLUS! Thank you!"Guest: Diane W.

"We had an amazing trip to NOLA. There was a party of 9 and we went there for my 40th birthday. The house is fabulous for a large group of people. Perfect location. The house is located three blocks from Frenchman street and a few more blocks to Royal and Bourbon. There was a lock box on the front of the house to hold the house keys, this was fabulous since there were 9 of us staying there. We could all go opposite directions and never worry about who had the key or how we were going to get into the house. The key lock box is very convenient. The house was great, nice bathrooms and very spacious. Beds were comfortable and having a washer/dryer was convenient. The owner was easy to deal with and very accommodating."Guest: Amy E.

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.
