  • Thanksgiving 2014!

    "We decided against turkey this year and chose to see what alternative foods we could find in New Orleans with our family, three generations represented. The home was wonderful and every detail was well represented in VRBO. Our eighty eight year old mother loved her room on the first floor. The four month old, 20 month old, mom and dad enjoyed their two room suite and we enjoyed our suite as well. We found the court yard to be charming and a great place to gather after a day on the town. Meyer Lemon tree there for our lemon drop martinis was a huge PLUS! Thank you!"

  • Family vacation

    "This was a wonderful house for my husband, our three adult children and me. The house is perfectly represented in the photos, very roomy for us to spread out and unbelievably close to all the restaurants on Magazine Street and more in the Garden District. We rented a car so to take day trips to the plantations and swamp tour. It was perfect to have a parking spot right on the property. The owner was very easy to reach and receptive to our questions/concerns. We all loved our stay and would definitely consider a return trip!"

  • Wonderful family stay in New Orleans

    "Our family of 5-6 had the most perfect stay at the house on Desire St. We were there for 4 nights and the issue of the privacy worked out much better than we had thought it might. The house is so elegant, lovely, comfortable and well equipped and we also loved the neighborhood. We went to several of the suggested restaurants and I even found a couple of grocery stores to stock up in. We did have a car and it was useful since we had to attend functions in other neighborhoods, but there is also public busses available and taxies of course. We had fun and enjoyed the visiting chickens and cats as well when we hung out on the front porch. Would recommend the place highly to anyone at all."

  • Quarter central!

    "This condo is great!!!!! Pictures are true to web pics.... The balconies are great..... Great views to Ursulines convent. We felt safe going all over and it was great to be so close to everything. Susan was easy to work with and she even paid our parking! After giving it a good review I hate to even mention this but the A/C didn't work. When we arrived thermostat read 83 deg we set them at 70 and went for dinner came back... Nothing! Luckily the ceiling fans worked great. Mentioned to the front desk about the A/C and they gave us a fan too use... I called this morning to the front desk and they said "oh we were waiting for a call we will come up and check it out" didn't come while we were there."

New Orleans Travel Tips

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.
