  • business and fun

    "2 couples stayed at this great location for a dental convention the same weekend as French Quarterfest. This is the first time we have tried a VRBO listing for New Orleans rather than a hotel. Easy drive to convention area and streetcar access a block away. There is a big Rouse's market as well as a Freshmarket closeby. There are many excellent restaurants closeby without going into the Quarter if you want to miss the typical tourist spots. We enjoyed Superior Seafood Restaurant just across St. Charles, as well as a beignet cafe on the corner without fighting the crowds at Cafe DuMonde. There are many new restaurants in the Uptown Midcity area. The streetcar service is great, running late in and out of the French Quarter. The bungalow was clean, gave us a home type feeling and the parking is certainly a bonus. We will stay here again!"

  • Great little place and very convenient!

    "We spent a fun weekend here with our three kids. As stated in the listing, it's half a block from a huge Whole Foods Market, and Magazine street is famous for small shops and restaurants. It's close to the zoo, Audobon park and the Audobon public tennis courts (all "soft" courts!) We took the #11 bus straight to the WWII museum and to the French quarter. The house is clean and modern with a washer and dryer. Full kitchen. Loved it!!"

  • A Magical Stay

    "We so enjoyed our time at the Greatmen Cottage during our annual family trip to New Orleans for Jazzfest. The cottage is gorgeously appointed, immaculately clean, and the courtyard is such a wonderful oasis in which to read the paper and relax during the mornings. We will definitely be back!"

  • Easter in NOLA

    "This was our first trip to NOLA and we were very happy that we chose this house. Rick and Linda were very easy to communicate with and our check in and check out went smoothly. We called Rick when we were leaving the airport and he was waiting at the house for us by the time we got there. We had a tour of the property and went over a few local spots for food, drinks and entertainment. We handed over the cleaning fee and the house was ours. Check out was easy, too and we got our security deposit back within 3 days of checking out. The house itself is full of character. If you're looking for pristine, perhaps this is not for you. But if you want a taste of the local ambiance, an interesting history, comfort and convenience this place is perfect. We were a group of 6 (3 couples). There was plenty of room to hang out together as well as enough space for privacy. It is important to note that the 3rd bedroom (on the 3rd floor) has only twin beds and there is no door. You can't see up into that room from the other floors, but sound carries easily. It also gets a bit warmer than the other rooms in the house. The other two bedrooms are of equal size and across the hall from each other on the second floor. Lots of exposed brick and antique-y furniture. You can access the balcony on the 2nd floor from each bedroom as well as the common area between these rooms. The living room is cozy and the kitchen is perfect for a quick breakfast in the morning. I'm sure it's fine for other meals as well, but we didn't really cook (so many great restaurants to try in the area!). The location is great, less than a five minute walk to Bourbon and Royal streets and less than 10 minutes to Frenchman St. There are also little markets/convenience stores a block or two away. Since this was our first trip to NOLA, we had no idea how compact the FQ is. I loved that we were so close to food, drinks and entertainment yet were in a quiet spot at the end of the night. There is a great little courtyard with a fountain and we'd usually start and end our days there. There is a security camera at the front entrance and the gate at the street is locked. We felt very safe. We were not a rowdy group, but if you want to be partying at the house know that they are strict about keeping noise levels down and not having extra guests. There are plenty of spots nearby to let loose. Enjoy!"

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.
