  • Nice Getaway

    "We four couples get together twice each year for relaxation. The Slidell house was the perfect spot for our enjoyment. The boat dock and slip served us well in spite of it needing some tender loving care. The house is located on the river off of highway 90 with beautiful scenery from the rear porch/deck. We all agreed to return in the future. We were disappointed the queen size beds were not all available as advertised. However, we are hopeful this will be addressed prior to our return."

  • Another wonderful weekend!

    "Just spent another amazing weekend at this mansion. Property is even more beautiful than it was the last time. Pool is amazing and we spent most of the day jumping in the water and having fun. I absolutely love that property is private and you feel completely detached from the rest of the world. Can't wait to go back!"

  • Such an amazing place, I don't want anyone to know about it!

    "I have to start by saying that I was debating on reviewing this place. It was such a treasure, I don't want a bunch of people knowing how amazing it is. Then it would be too booked to ever return! The Caprice Cottage is an amazing place. We were greeted by Bill, the neighbor, who had the place lit up and jazz music playing on the radio. What a welcome! He had information on the house and area-perfect for the history lover in me. The decor was absolutely gorgeous, with antiques and old New Orleans everywhere you looked. The fireplaces, the porch, the courtyard...just perfect. NOLA had a bad winter, so the banana trees didnt make it, but we could smell the key lime buds growing on the tree next to the porch. I think that little porch was our favorite after a long day, or in the morning with a cup of coffee. You were hidden away from the street, but could still hear some faint action in the distance that made it 100% New Orleans: happy people walking a block over or down your street, the clip clop of horses pulling a wagon on Pauger, the brass jazz band that played on a corner down on Frenchman Street, the sound of the riverboat horn, the train... Yet when you walked in the cottage, it was shut out from the world. The beds were comfortable, the house was clean, and it was perfectly situated-far enough to get out of the party atmosphere, but so close to everything. It was walking distance to Frenchman Street, Bourbon Street, the French Market, and pretty much everything in the French Quarter. We walked everywhere---the best way to see everything. And coming home was nice and relaxing, to soak in the spa tub. All of the conveniences of home! We brought laundry detergent and there was already a supply! There were also stockpiles of paper towel, toilet paper, clean towels, etc. The only negatives (and I wouldnt even call them negatives-just different and something to get used to) was no shower and only a small TV in the dining area. I got used to taking a bath every day and grew to love it; and if you are in New Orleans to watch TV, then I am very sorry for you. We already miss this place! We miss the breakfast at Ruby Slippers on the next block. We miss walking down at night to hear some jazz at the Spotted Cat (our favorite on Frenchman Street). We just plain miss it! We would totally book the Caprice Cottage again. In a heartbeat. Hopefully, it will be available. What a gem!"

  • One word: AMAZING!

    "We spent a wonderful weekend and this house was part of it. We were a group of international friends flying over from different places. The house was just perfect: clean, comfortable, cozy, conveniently located in the best neighborhood of NOLA. All the fun of Frenchmen, the Mint and the French Quarter are just a couple of blocks away. The house has all the comfort and the owner is extremely kind and professional. Will go back for sure!"

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.
