"Last month, myself and 5 of my thirty something gal pals decided we needed a get away and reserved this gem. From booking, to arrival instructions to even our departure the whole process was a breeze. Robin assisted us with all of the details and was overly accommodating. As for the house, not only was it clean and safe, but conveniently located so that we could walk to everything--Bourbon & Frenchman Streets, grocery, etc. The place offers a great deal of charm and features a nice outdoor space, both in the back garden and the front balcony. Rooms were spacious, clean and the beds were comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place to future visitors and will be booking there should we make it back to New Orleans again any time soon."Guest: Sarah L.

"Our group has been coming to New Orleans for over 15 years, and never have we stayed at a finer place than the penthouse. Some locals told us about the Penthouse at Jax last year when we were here. We tried to book it for a few different dates but it was already spoken for. Well, it was worth the wait! We arrived in mid September and were immediately blown away when we walked in the front door. As our local friends mentioned, the views are amazing and the interior is spotless and beautiful. We wound up spending a lot more time at the penthouse, around the pool, and on the huge veranda overlooking the river than we planned on. It was so wonderful we hated to leave. The owners and their sons could not have been more helpful and informative. We had a wonderful time and will certainly tell all our friends about this amazing place...Count on seeing us again!"Guest: Nola lovers!

"My husband and I stayed for 4 nights with another couple. Could not have been more pleased with this unit. Very close to all there was to offer in this wonderful city. The apartment was just as seen on vrbo very spacious clean and so secure. Cam the manager lived upstairs met us promptly on arrival showed us around and offered her assistance which was not needed as we had every thing. We slept in the 2nd bedroom and the bed was wonderful, it was on the street side and we heard activity at times wich did not bother us at all and did not interfer with sleep..but who comes to new orleans to sleep and we are 56 years old there was a sound machine but we only needed that to block out each other snoring lovely place to stay very safe would highly reccommend"Guest: debbie08 Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 8, 2014View listing
"Nice, large house with plenty of parking. A rental car is a great way to tour New Orleans, and this house puts you no more than 10-15 minutes from most of the places you'll want to be. Neighborhood is pretty and safe, and the two baths were adequate for our party of 8. Only thing for other renters to be aware of is that three of the four bedrooms are grouped VERY close together, with each sharing a wall with two others -- in fact, the fourth bedroom can only be accessed through the second and third, meaning those occupants need to traipse through someone else's bedroom to reach the bathroom in the middle of the night. So, this configuration would probably work fine for families, but is a little uncomfortable for several couples traveling together. But if the bedroom configuration works for you, it's a nicely sized and well located house for a large group."Guest: Scott Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 14, 2014View listing

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.
