Recent New Orleans reviews
"We had an amazing week in New Orleans and it was highlighted by the this house. Being from New Orleans it was nice to have a unique and classy place to entertain friends and family. This house had everything. The fully stocked wine frig was an added surprise. I can't think of an amenity it did not have. The location was exceptional. You are within walking distance to many great restaurants and Audubon park. When visiting NO in the past we always stayed in a hotel, but I think that is over. We will definitely be back."Guest: Yolanda Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 25, 2014View listing
"My husband and I just finished a one month stay in this charming Uptown New Orleans rental. Lucky us! We love New Orleans and especially like the Uptown neighborhood. This apartment's listing described what seemed to be the perfect spot for us, and thankfully, everything was as we hoped it would be. The rental is two spacious rooms, very comfortable and well equiped. The kitchen is especially well organised with good knives and quality cookware, much appreciated during our long stay. The neighborhood is lovely, quiet and safe, and just a short walk to the street car, shops and restaurants. A perfect combination. The private court yard is a great bonus, adding a sweet outdoor space. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. We were totally happy with our choice. It was hard to leave.... we hope to be back!"Guest: Margaret I. Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: March 2, 2014View listing
"The property was perfect for our girls get away. It was clean and well maintained, spacious, the beds were comfortable, and the back patio was ideal for sitting outside to drink our morning, chicory coffee. We also utilized the fully equipped kitchen every morning for our egg po-boys. An added bonus for some extra laughs were the roosters, hens and chicks that would parade around the neighborhood in a "second line" and give us free wake up calls. The owner responded to questions in a timely manner and was always very helpful. The property is a little bit off the beaten path, so a rental car is recommended and there is off-street parking. I'm originally from New Orleans, although I never stayed in the Bywater, it felt safe and navigating was easy. I would recommend this property to friends and family as well as for my own future bookings;-)"Guest: Meredith N. Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 16, 2014View listing
"We recently stayed in this apt. It had the nicest kitchen of any rented apt we have ever stayed in. The location is great. The lock system on the front door is very convenient for renters. My only request would be to have a list of the TV channels. It took a long time to get the TV on and then to find a particular channel. Otherwise it was great."Guest: arty traveller Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 25, 2014View listing

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.

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.
