"This place is perfect! Close to everything including a grocery store so we could cook due to allergies. We could come and go dropping off packages throughout the day. The host is wonderful and a real help in getting to know your way around. WE WILL BE BACK!"Guest: Eva S. Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: November 20, 2014View listing
"Attention Tulane Parents, We just rented this home for our daughter's graduation from Tulane and it was amazing. The layout of the home was perfect for families. It flowed perfectly, lots of lounging room including two outdoor areas. Great house for entertaining also. When viewing pictures online I will just tell you they are true to form. The house is beautiful and looks just as it does online."Guest: Tulane Parents Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 20, 2014View listing
"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."Guest: Lone B.

"Nice, large house with plenty of parking. A rental car is a great way to tour New Orleans, and this house puts you no more than 10-15 minutes from most of the places you'll want to be. Neighborhood is pretty and safe, and the two baths were adequate for our party of 8. Only thing for other renters to be aware of is that three of the four bedrooms are grouped VERY close together, with each sharing a wall with two others -- in fact, the fourth bedroom can only be accessed through the second and third, meaning those occupants need to traipse through someone else's bedroom to reach the bathroom in the middle of the night. So, this configuration would probably work fine for families, but is a little uncomfortable for several couples traveling together. But if the bedroom configuration works for you, it's a nicely sized and well located house for a large group."Guest: Scott Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 14, 2014View listing

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.
