  • Fabulous condo!!

    "This was a fabulous condo in a great, convenient location! The condo was immaculate and has everything you would possibly need, even a sound machine to go to sleep to. We were greeted by the owner upon arrival and he is onsite, although we did not have any needs or problems. The small gated complex was the perfect getaway for our trip! We travel to NOLA often and usually stay at a hotel but we will definitely be staying here from now on!"

  • Fantastic holiday pied-à-terre in Bywater

    "The Lily Pad was a perfect spot from which to explore New Orleans for five days. Quiet, with the exception of the sweet unpredictability of the train passing through at night, eclectically and thoughtfully put together (the touch-pad lamp in the wire locker basket is truly the sweetest sconce I've ever seen anywhere), and the owners are friendly and respectful of guest privacy. Staying at the edge of Bywater-Marigny is the perfect excuse not to spend too much time in the chaos of the French Quarter and to explore in depth two creative, low-key, relaxed neighborhoods. Next time we'll rent bikes for the entire visit!"

  • Perfect for family and friends vacation!

    "We had a group of 8 visiting New Orleans for vacation so we rented both units simultaneously and it was perfect! The free parking for 4 cars behind the units was super convenient and we felt secure. The St. Charles streetcar stop was only 1 block away and a quick ride to the French Quarter. The house is on a very high traffic corner next to the freeway so it was actually very noisy but not enough to bother any of us. House was clean, stocked with all the amenities we would ever need, and the rental process was so easy. We'd definitely rent this house again!"

Known as the Big Easy, New Orleans is a diverse and intriguing city. New Orleans is named after Orléans, a city on the Loire River in France, and New Orleans, or NOLA, boasts a huge French quarter celebrating the city’s cross-cultural and multilingual heritage.

New Orleans is famously known as the Birthplace of Jazz and attracts plenty of foodies and revelers due to Creole cuisine as well as partiers for over-the-top celebrations like Mardi Gras.You'll be hard-pressed to find another locale in the country quite like NOLA.

Whether you’re looking to taste a bowl of traditional gumbo, sway to the music in a late night jazz club or explore New Orleans’ diverse neighborhoods, there is plenty to experience throughout the city.

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.

Dining and shopping in New Orleans

Cafe du Monde: For the perfect NOLA breakfast, stop at Cafe du Monde in the French Market. 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.
