"I had a business conference in New Orleans in late October and was accompanied by my Board Chair (Big Boss), his wife, my wife and our two havanese furbabies. After I looked at hotel prices and added parking, taxes, extra for pets, and overall hassle, the two Marigny houses (this one and the smaller in the back) hit the spot. Not only were they cheaper, all in, than the Conference Hotel, we got a ton of room, the dogs were most happy with their little compound, the houses were in great condition, well furnished, quiet, and greatly convenient to Frenchman St, the Quarter, tons of restaurants and music.
My wife and I (and furbabies) took the smaller back house as the bedroom and bath were upstairs and my board chair's wife has had hip surgery and was uncertain about climbing stairs. The front house (#371457) was awesome, all kinds of space, grand kitchen built around the original wood cookstove chimney, Boss's wife spent the first two days of our stay taking pictures with her phone and sending them to her friends and family bragging about "their place in New Orleans". They really did enjoy themselves. Neither couple had any problems at all. In fact, the Krewe of Boo had their halloween parade the evening we all arrived and I had my Chair convinced that I had organized a parade in honor of his visit (until he saw the parade participants and I had to admit to exaggerating "just a little").
Wife and I have traveled using VRBO and Flipkey for almost 25 years and have always been most satisfied. This was the first time we took advantage of private rental for a work trip and I learned something....THIS IS THE WAY TO DO IT. Wife wasn't stuck in a little hotel room while I was at meetings....the puppies were happy with their own yard...the place was private and quiet and still close to the music and food that makes New Orleans...New Orleans. There were a number of people at my conference who I showed photos of the property to and they were all quite jealous. Nuff said....if you have a need to be in New Orleans...this is the place to stay. I just sent off to reserve this house for Jazz Fest next year....that's how much we liked it."
