"We were four women driving from Houston to the Jazz Festival for three days and did not want to stay in a hotel. I looked on VRBO and found this property. It looked great and the price was right! Contacted the owner who was extremely helpful. When we arrived we parked the car in the carport and never drove it until we left to go home. We caught the bus at the corner two houses down and rode to the Festival for a dollar. The neighborhood was wonderful and had excellent restaurants within walking distance. Furniture was very pretty and comfortable. We had coffee every morning in the private backyard. I would definitely and have recommended this rental to friends and am looking forward to staying there again! It's charm was so New Orleans! Perfect place to stay!!"Guest: Snowflake Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: August 4, 2014View listing
"We booked this because it's close to the French Quarter, and it is.. (about 3 blocks). It's also just a couple of blocks from Frenchman street, where you can listen to great music and get amazing food. The place itself is very nice (the photos don't do it justice, my husband is a photographer and we'll fix that for them next time around). A full kitchen, very nice bathroom, super-comfortable livingroom furniture, a very nice TV and stereo system and a great king sized bed. This property is close to the street and once you make the one step up into the property, the rest of it is handicapped accessible. The front door opens wide, the shower is huge and barrier free and the rest of the place has hard-surface floors appropriate for all mobility challenged-folks. All of that is what you'd probably expect for the price, but what we didn't expect was the amazing neighborhood. The Friendly Bar across the street (yes, that's it's name) is a place where you walk in a stranger and walk out a friend. Our first night we pulled our chairs outside to have a cigarette (don't smoke inside this property) and almost immediately we met half-a-dozen very nice people. Folks will take the time to talk to you, get to know you, tell you what they think and you'll be instant friends. They'll also give you great recommendations on restaurants, activities etc... Be sure to go to the Orange Couch for coffee, Cake for a full breakfast, Adolpho's (over the Apple Barrel on Frenchman) for anything good to eat -- and ask around to find out all the other good stuff you shouldn't miss. Our original plan was to eat a very nice dinner someplace new every night, after exploring the city. We found ourselves eating nice lunches and coming home in the evening so we could spend time with our new friends. If you're looking for an authentic New Orleans experience, I'd highly recommend this spot. I now understand why people visit and never leave, getting on the flight home was the only downside to the whole trip. I'd highly recommend this property for my friends and family. In fact, they'd better be careful or we'll book it for our family reunion :). The downstairs unit is great for a couple or small family (it's one HUGE room), more than one couple would want to rent the upstairs, as it has two bedrooms and an amazing gallery, but if you do that, be sure to get downstairs and be social, or you'll miss the best part of the trip."Guest: Patty S.

"While I could certainly reaffirm the many positive comments of folks who have stayed here before us – location, amenities, comfort, etc. – I’ll go into a few of the things I enjoyed most. As background info, this was a spring break jaunt for me, my husband and 18 year old daughter, and the condo was big enough for all (but small enough to be adorable by my standards!) You know how sometimes you can tell what kind of day you’re going to have the minute you step into the shower? Well let me tell you that a day here begins with lots of hot water, a pulsating shower head, and fluffy soft towels. Coffee is brewing, cool air is coming through the doors all along the balcony, and the sound of birds in the area welcomes you to the day. Heading out for the days adventure, you can turn down Bourbon Street at the corner or continue down Esplanade and meet up with the Riverfront Trolley at the end of the street. Stop off at the French Market first, and catch a Mexican lunch at El Gato Negro right across the street from the big tents. Further into the French Quarter is Café du Monde – that’s a tradition worth going off your no-sugar diet for, and be sure to keep your ears peeled for Wael Elhalaby, a street musician playing beautiful violin music around the French Quarter. Lots to do and see, and while resting up between sightseeing and dining, I most enjoyed plopping in the cool enclosed courtyard of the condo, with a book in hand – you can’t get that kind of serenity in a hotel. At the end of the day you’ll begin to smell the delicious scent of burgers wafting from the Port of Call, directly across the street from the condo. You won’t be able to resist the siren’s call of that meal, and even if you find that you have to wait a bit, it’s well worth it. Rolling contently back across the street, a comfy bed awaits. After a good night’s sleep, it’s back to the shower and another memorable day. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Emir again should my travels take me to New Orleans. Enjoy!"Guest: Laurie V.

"Very nice property with all you would need for a relaxing NOLA getaway. We were here for the first weekend of Jazz Fest 2014 and couldn't have had a better time. Owner was extremely communicative, accessible and responsive throughout the process. The fridge was not cooling properly prior to us arriving so they brought in a brand new one for our stay! Thanks so much. We shall return soon."Guest: Danny Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: May 1, 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

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.
