Okay location, average apartment
We didn't feel uncomfortable in this apartment, but we didn't enjoy quite it either. The bed was terribly hard and squeaky. Bathroom was fine, kitchen was fine (although we didn't use it). AC worked well. We did see a couple big cockroaches in the apartment, so we weren't very happy about that. Location was very close the street car so that was very convenient. Otherwise it's pretty far away from the action of Bourbon Street, but we were happy to get away from that at night.
Perfect for a quiet getaway but still close to tourist attractions.
This place was a perfect for what my husband and I were looking for. We were down for Jazzfest and we wanted a place that would give us a feel of actually living as the locals do away from all the chaos of the French Quarter. Milton and Therese were lovely hosts. They promptly returned our messages and we felt they truly cared about our time there. The apartment was stocked with soft towels and sheets, toiletries, coffee, dishes, etc. The bed is comfortable, the wifi worked well and the AC kept up with the heat. The terrace out back was the highlight! The location is in a sweet spot; It's right on the streetcar line. At the one end is the downtown area and the other are the fairgrounds, art museum and City Park. There is a coffee shop less than a block up and several great restaurants within a short walking distance. We felt safe in the area and the neighbors are quiet also. Highly recommend staying here.
Great value and location
My family visited NOLA for a long weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday. The location in Mid-City was perfect - about 15 minutes from the French Quarter and Magazine Street, and far enough away from the buzz to feel like a local. The coffee shop around the corner was lovely!
We brought our 18-month-old son, and the apartment was plenty of space for the three of us. The layout wasn't ideal, however, for putting our son to bed early and closing the bedroom door, as you have to go through the bedroom to get to the kitchen and bathroom at the back of the apartment. Our son is a great sleeper, though, so we made do just fine.
If you're staying during warm-weather months, know that the air conditioning comes from a window unit. This might be common in New Orleans, but we found it challenging our first night to get the temperature right (and the living room area became really humid and stuffy after we closed the bedroom door when our son went to sleep). Of course, if you have no reason to shut the bedroom door while you're hanging out in the living room, this wouldn't really be an issue.
We did have one issue with the bathtub drain not draining during our first showers. I messaged Milton about the problem our first morning there, and he responded immediately and fixed the problem right away. He and Theresa were both very responsive and accommodating. As a result, our stay was virtually worry-free.
Plenty of room, convenient, and priced right!
We loved our stay in this apartment, although it does have a few details that give it "character". For the same or better price than a hotel, we had enough room to spread out for our 6 days in NOLA. Set up our laptop in the LR to make our exploration plans for the day. Couch is totally not comfy, but we weren't really there to sit in front of the TV anyway. BR was large enough for all of our personal stuff without getting in each other's way. The double bed was comfy enough, but not as much as a similar-priced hotel might be. Still, we slept great after sight-seeing all day and staying out late. The shower left a little to be desired...great water pressure, but small water heater and the tub drain leaves you standing in ankle deep-water every shower. I called because I thought the drain plug was broken and stuck closed. Milton came right over and worked on it, but it never worked right. This house was renovated into 3 apartments, and as old houses go, not everything is square or level....the hall floor slopes quite a bit, making the middle-of-the-night trip to the bathroom such an adventure that we laughed about it all week. LOL Kitchen has all the basics if you wanted to eat in. The enclosed deck area was a little too enclosed, but the adjacent shared courtyard area was nice for morning coffee. The streetcar stop was 2 blocks away...an easy less-than-10-minute walk. About 20 minute ride to the end of Canal St. line, except at rush hour, when the cars were packed and it took about 40 minutes. Still a great transportation option at $3 a day. If you have a car, we recommend driving to the Garden District; there was plenty of street parking, and the St. Charles streetcar line is beyond capacity (or was the day we were in that area....waited an hour for a car to have enough room to stop). Overall, we would most likely stay here again, (but please fix the drain). Plenty of space, convenient, mostly comfy and well-appointed, and a great deal.
Just saw this. the drain is fixed. as far as the character floor, lol, it was messed up after hurricane Katrina and the so called carpenters had the floor and walls done before we noticed. That's our joke, the Katrina floor. Gotta laugh about it. We would be happy to have y'all back.
Our second stay here, would like to come again
Nice and clean apartment on good location with functional kitchen. It is great to have laundry on site and we specially enjoy a little terrace at the back.
Great location and great price
Plenty of space for a couple. Living room, kitchen with all the amenities and a private back porch. We especially liked how close it was to the streetcars that are only $3 for a day pass. We will definitely look to stay here again.
