Recent Louisiana reviews

  • House of Mirth

    "Six of us recently stayed at the House of Mirth for a New Orleans bachelor weekend. We couldn't have picked a better place. The house was in a fantastic location and just a 10 minute ($1.25) street car ride to the French quarter. The neighborhood was very unique with all of the amenities and excellent restaurants nearby (Katie's was amazing). Not once did we feel unsafe. Elizabeth (owner) was very helpful and provided us with some excellent insight on the surrounding area. Everything about the house was exactly as described. Needless to say " The House of Mirth exceeded our expectations "!"

  • Perfect spot!

    "This place was perfect for our needs. Charming railroad apartment close to everything. Off the beaten path so it was quiet when we needed it to be. We didn't rent a car because everything was so convenient. We found a treasure in Le Coquette on magazine street for Sunday brunch. Found out after we ate it was an Emeril restaurant. Should have lnown. Food was excellent!"

  • Beautiful immaculate house, CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN, but lack of attention to minor details

    "First I want to commend owners Tom and Chuck for the beautiful furnishings and spotless condition of the house; this exceeded our expectations and everyone was highly impressed with the accommodations and how well-kept and clean this old house is. We had 11 ladies stay here for my mother's birthday celebration, and the space was perfect for us. Everything considered, would I stay here again? Absolutely. However, there were also some negatives that I feel compelled to report, if for no other reason than to alert them to improve the experience for future guests. First, nobody was there to greet us upon our arrival. We kept on knocking, and apparently he was in the backyard doing work and didn't hear us, and we couldn't get inside. (shouldn't work be done prior to our arrival? It would've been nice if someone was there to greet us) Although the fridge has a water dispenser, it had a gross taste and was undrinkable; a gallon of water in the fridge for us to drink would also be nice. In addition, no sugar or milk for our morning coffee. I realize this isn't a B&B, but these are little things that would've made our stay more pleasant (and from reading reviews of other NOLA properties on VRBO, not out of the ordinary). None of us are from NOLA, so leaving a list of taxi companies, grocery stores, and local wine shops would've also been helpful. This house is close to Frenchman St, but it is a stretch of the legs to get to the heart of the FQ. We did it, but if you don't need this much space and such a fancy house, a smaller house closer to the quarter would be preffered. In addition, communication wasn't great before our arrival; my aunt left several msgs for the owner(s) concerning having a caterer deliver to the house. When he didn't respond and our arrival date was getting close, she arranged for Whole Foods to deliver. When he finally called back, he gave her an attitude and told her he could've had it catered for less. He also offered to do a flower arrangement and said he would only charge us for the flowers. (you can't put a small vase of wildflowers in a vase, gratis, upon our arrival?) Dining rm table was also a bit tight for 11 people, and there is really nowhere else to sit to eat in the house. Also no extra towels provided, and no hair dryers. A few small details that added up, would've made a difference, but I would still recommend staying here. KUDOS to the cleaning lady! SPOTLESS! Beds comfy & nice bathrooms. LOVE NoLa!"

  • Best of Everything!!!

    "We have so many good things to say! We were traveling with our two grown daughters and one of their friends, and knew we didn't want to stay at a hotel. This was the first time we ever rented a home and were SO glad that we did. Everything about this home was absolutely perfect! Cile and Gregg were wonderful and made us feel so welcome. They even had a gift waiting for our daughter who was celebrating her 21st birthday -- just incredibly thoughtful! We spent a whole week there and were so happy to be in the center of it all. Everything in the FQ was an easy, short walk away. We were especially thrilled to be just a couple of blocks from Café du Monde (I will not be able to look at another beignet for a long time - ha!). Parking was a cinch too. We did four day trips outside of the FQ and getting our car in and out of the garage was simple and quick. What a blessing to not have to pay extra $$$ for parking, which is super expensive there. The house itself was simply gorgeous and the pictures here do not do it justice. We felt like royalty sitting in the beautiful, modern kitchen with the shutters open, people-watching while sipping a cocktail and talking about the day's events. Having three full bathrooms to get ready in was great, and we never felt crowded or like we were climbing over each other (like we would have in a hotel room). The balcony was a dream too. Our girls ended every single day there, and we also spent a few mornings there as well enjoying the coffee that Cile & Gregg provided. There is a great little place around the corner on Bourbon called NOLA Po Boy's. I did a count and over the course of one week, we collectively ate 19 sandwiches. It's just a quick, convenient place to grab a bite to eat late at night (4 stars on Yelp). There was also a Rouse's market two blocks down for groceries. It's expensive, but convenient. All in all, we had an amazing experience that we will cherish for the rest of our lives -- and this house made all the difference in the world. My oldest daughter says she keeps having dreams about being back at the house, so we might just need to make a return visit soon. My husband says he misses the lady ghost who tried to sit next to him on the bed every night (allegedly!)."

Louisiana Travel Tips

Visitors to Louisiana House Rentals

Most visitors to Louisiana are attracted by the great weather and festive atmosphere of New Orleans. The home of Jazz, New Orleans has a rich musical and cultural heritage. Enjoy performances in the many bars and cafés in the French Quarter. Louisiana also has a rich historical heritage and those who enjoy browsing museums will have many sites and exhibits to choose from.

Festive and Historic Attractions at Louisiana Condos

Perhaps Louisiana’s best-known attraction is the mighty Mississippi River. Many a legend and tale has been told of the river and the personalities that have sailed her fast flowing waters. Steamboats once provided transportation for both cargo and passengers into the interior of the United States. Today, only a handful of tourist steam boats remain. The Steamboat Nachez is an authentic steamboat and the ninth to carry its name. The Nachez runs regular day trips up the Mississippi from New Orleans. The World War Two Museum in New Orleans has some fascinating exhibits and personal accounts from soldiers and people involved in the war.

The French Quarter is possibly one of the city's most famous landmarks. It is the site of the festive Mardi Gras which takes place each year. Here, you can enjoy great food, entertainment and culture in a number of interesting cafés and restaurants. About 30 miles north of New Orleans, you will find the small town of Abita Springs. It is here that a brewery was founded in 1986. Abita Beer is widely known and enjoyed throughout the region. In the northern parts of Louisiana, you will find the towns of Ruston and Monroe. Monroe is the home to the Louisiana Purchase Garden and Zoo. This historical and recreational site is great for visiting with the family. The North Louisiana Military Museum is located in Ruston. The museum showcases more than 150 years of military history.

Best Seasons to Visit Louisiana

Located on the Gulf of Mexico Louisiana receives both the best and worst of the Gulf's weather. In the late summer months, New Orleans and the low lying coastal regions are often battered by hurricanes and tropical storms. However, don’t let this deter you from visiting as the hurricane incidents are isolated and usually storm warnings are sent out in advance. For most of the year, Louisiana has a consistent subtropical climate. New Orleans is recorded as having 60 percent sunshine all year long. With its location on the coastal floodplain, the daily temperature variations are not large. This changes the further inland you travel. While winters can be cold up north with occasional snowfalls, it rarely drops below freezing in the south.
