"We go to NOLA each year for our anniversary. We usually stay in hotels but thought we were ready to truly experience what it would be like to be. "Local". Searched vrbo and found this little gem. Let me start with the ease of booking this perfect home away. The owners couldn't be more pleasant and accommodating. He had such a pleasant personality when talking with him on the phone. His responses were timely. He suggested places to go, etc. Next let me talk about Regina. This beauty was adorable and helpful from the first text. As soon as we arrived, she was there with her warmth and pretty smile to let us in and give us her instructions. She was so accommodating and full of suggestions. Now onto the unit. It is charming, clean, beautifully updated, perfectly located, tempature was perfect, romantic and on and on. The kitchen is stocked with your necessities. Bring your own spices, oil, etc. We made eggs Benedict with bloody Mary's one morning, omelette the next. We made filet mignon, sautéed shrimp for dinner. Everything I needed was there. Bring some ziplock bags and foil, too, you may need them. The adjacent den has a flat screen tv and comfie couches. Perfect for watching our Alabama football game. The bedroom is quaint and romantic with its very comfortable rod iron bed and brick wall. We didn't realize until we were packing up that there was a tv above the closet. Whoops. The bathroom is perfect size. Jetted garden tub was to die for after walking all day. Shower was very comfortable with its rain shower head. The courtyard is where we spent a ton of time. We ate our meals out there, enjoyed our cocktails and conversations. It is quaint with its brickwork, plants, patio furniture and lights. There is even a stereo in the laundry shed that we plugged our iPod up to and enjoyed playing jazz. We saw another person once for about 10 seconds. Otherwise, it felt like we were the only ones there the entire time. We never heard any noise from anywhere. Not from the bar next door, the street, nothing! Little chinese restaurant on the corner has the most amazing lo mien and sweet and sour chicken I have ever had. Rouses corner market was about 4 blocks away. That is where we picked up our filets. We went to the French Market for the first time and picked up oysters and fresh shrimp for dinner. We parked our car and didn't use it again until we left. Everything is too convenient not to walk. Just perfect"Guest: Watts anniversary Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 22, 2014View listing
"It was lovely to come back to a house that we enjoyed so very much last year! We love the opportunities it provides for hanging out together as well as the privacy one has when we're tucked away in our rooms. We were attending Jazzfest both times and yet had a solid chance to explore the wonders of Magazine Street. We were comfortable at all times and felt safe in the neighborhood too. Loved it and look forward to returning next year!"Guest: Jee Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: May 14, 2014View listing
"Owners are great, so accommodating and easy to work with. The place is exactly as described, small, charming with everything you need to make your NOLA stay perfect. The location was at the center of everything in the french quarter, but tucked in a courtyard so at night it was peaceful and quiet. I would stay here again and I highly recommend this rental."Guest: Peg H. Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: August 20, 2014View listing
"We loved being right in the heart of the french quarter. This apartment has everything you need for a vacation in the Big Easy. It is a short walk away from all of the things you associate with New Orleans i.e. Bourbon Street, the Mississippi River, Cafe Du Monde, but tucked away form all of the noise! We loved it here and cannot wait to visit again! We have already recommended this place to our friends :)"Guest: Thomas D. Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 27, 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.
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.
