Why Monica Ard chose Arabi

Being born and raised in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, this location is in close proximity of the old stompin grounds. With our family tree being traced back here for 200 years! The Historic Old Arabi once was considered a part of New Orleans. Arabi is where I retired and reside, after raising my family in the beautiful part of lower St. Bernard Parish! Not to mention this property has been in the family for many many years.

What makes this Guest House unique

Ard's River View is UNIQUE in that it sits directly ON the Mississippi River. Your View is of the Crescent City, New Orleans Jackson Barracks, the West Bank of the Mississippi River, and The historic City of Arabi! Location, that's the uniqueness!

                                                                Amazing stay! Great hosts! Best VRBO in Nola

                                                                Mark V.Chicago

                                                                Monica was an extremely gracious host. She had our vacation rental fully stocked with everything to make a short or long stay make you feel like home. Not only is the house extremely authentic and beautiful, but it also provides THE BEST view of the city and Mississippi river. Taking a vacation just to sit on the back porch(which has very comfortable seating) is viable option in itself.

                                                                The house is complete with 3 bedrooms and could probably sleep up to 10 people comfortably. Its a huge space with 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, wet bar, living room, 2 dining areas, 2 porches with seating, and parking for up to 3 cars. Appliances include 2 mini-fridges that are rather large, an ice maker, keurig machine that works with both pods and loose coffee grounds, microwave, and regular coffee machine. Monica has the river view stocked fully with plates and silverware as well.

                                                                My friends and I often took ubers and lyfts into the city and french quarter which typically only averaged about $12 or so. Its a very reasonable distance to everything.

                                                                One thing that also really stood out to me is how nice and gracious Monica and all of the neighborhood characters are. The impression of the neighborhood is a strong local flavor thats away from all of the crazy partying of Bourbon St. We instantly made friends with every pedestrian that walked by and all neighbors came up and introduced themselves. The neighbors were a huge highlight for us on our journey to NOLA

                                                                Overall this place was perfect and Monica couldn't have been a better host. I highly recommend the River View to anyone staying in New Orleans and I will definitely reserve this space again on my next trip into town. 5 stars, no doubt

                                                                Very clean and great view

                                                                Vipul P.

                                                                When we rented this house, We were worried about the location and safety. This house is great for a walk along river any time. Located on the edge of Mississippi River, great view. Very clean and odorless.

                                                                Owner's Response:
