"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
"This property is absolutely gorgeous. The photos cannot do it's charm any justice. It's exactly what you might think a New Orleans abode should be, and more. Our host was incredibly gracious; just a total gem. A group of 6 of us stayed in 2 of the apartments over New Year's Eve and just had the best time. It's in a perfect location in the French Quarter, everything was at our fingertips. In summary, we are all just dying to get back!"Guest: AJ D.

"We had a terrific time staying at The General. It was clean, well-maintained, nicely furnished and there were plenty of beds and baths for our family of 9 to have a comfortable stay. We particularly enjoyed spending time on the front porch – elevated above the street so that it feels like your own private space. We all gathered there to share stories and enjoy the lovely weather! We also enjoyed the dining room/kitchen space for hanging out early in the morning and late at night. The General is in a great location – it just took a few minutes to drive to Tulane, to the Superdome for our daughter’s graduation and to Frenchmen street at night. (You could probably do this via the street car and cabs, but we decided renting cars would work best for us.) We highly recommend The General for a cozy, family stay in New Orleans!"Guest: Megan S.

Bourbon Street: The French Quarter is also home the famous Bourbon Street - one of the most favorited thoroughfares for partiers.
