  • A French Quarter gem!

    "Very, very nice French Quarter condo! So comfortable and clean, my whole family loved it! Beds are so comfortable! Pool was nice, there was construction near that area daily. The construction workers were very kind and went out of their way to not interfere with our stay. Such a beautiful condo and so close to the heart of the French Quarter!"

  • 8 1/2

    "My husband and I, our three sons & their significant others AND my first grandchild had plenty of room. 8 1/2 ;-). We caught crabs and a few fish. This camp is stocked with many necessities and was very spacious."

  • Clean Quiet Fun

    "Clean, Quiet, Quaint. Great alternative to French Quarter options with an authentic NOLA feel. Easy access to Canal St and Quarter during ferry hours. Uptown, Garden District was a cinch to get to via car and the bridge is free. Taxi driver was happy to take us back one night though needed some help navigating the one ways in the neighborhood. Closest groceries might actually be French Quarter...that's what we did. Not 100% on that though. At least two local pubs frequented by few (if any) tourists. At least one great cafe down to the street serving espresso and breakfast. Water is hot, A/C is cold, parking is free and the owner is responsive and easy to work with."

  • A little bit of heaven

    "While I could certainly reaffirm the many positive comments of folks who have stayed here before us – location, amenities, comfort, etc. – I’ll go into a few of the things I enjoyed most. As background info, this was a spring break jaunt for me, my husband and 18 year old daughter, and the condo was big enough for all (but small enough to be adorable by my standards!) You know how sometimes you can tell what kind of day you’re going to have the minute you step into the shower? Well let me tell you that a day here begins with lots of hot water, a pulsating shower head, and fluffy soft towels. Coffee is brewing, cool air is coming through the doors all along the balcony, and the sound of birds in the area welcomes you to the day. Heading out for the days adventure, you can turn down Bourbon Street at the corner or continue down Esplanade and meet up with the Riverfront Trolley at the end of the street. Stop off at the French Market first, and catch a Mexican lunch at El Gato Negro right across the street from the big tents. Further into the French Quarter is Café du Monde – that’s a tradition worth going off your no-sugar diet for, and be sure to keep your ears peeled for Wael Elhalaby, a street musician playing beautiful violin music around the French Quarter. Lots to do and see, and while resting up between sightseeing and dining, I most enjoyed plopping in the cool enclosed courtyard of the condo, with a book in hand – you can’t get that kind of serenity in a hotel. At the end of the day you’ll begin to smell the delicious scent of burgers wafting from the Port of Call, directly across the street from the condo. You won’t be able to resist the siren’s call of that meal, and even if you find that you have to wait a bit, it’s well worth it. Rolling contently back across the street, a comfy bed awaits. After a good night’s sleep, it’s back to the shower and another memorable day. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Emir again should my travels take me to New Orleans. Enjoy!"

Louisiana Travel Tips

Getting to Louisiana Vacation Rentals

Louisiana is located on the Gulf of Mexico in the southern region of the United States. It is bordered by Texas to the west, Arkansas to the north and Mississippi to the east. The major city and tourist attraction in Louisiana is New Orleans. This is also the primary access point for the state. The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport hosts numerous international and regional airlines. There are many flights that route via New Orleans to Central America and the Caribbean islands. A second international airport is found in Alexandria. Baton Rouge has a Metropolitan airport. Regional airports can be found in Shreveport, Monroe, Lake Charles, and Lafayette. Louisiana has an extensive road network which makes getting around Louisiana easy. For those visiting the areas of Lake Charles and Orange, you may consider flying into Houston as it is the closest airport to those spots.

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.
