Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I have been married for 10 years and have 3 young children, 6 yrs.,4 yrs., and 1 yr. we have had the pleasure of staying in countless B & B's, VRBO's and cabins. This property is hands down a 5-star experience. All the sheets, towels, linens, pillows and kitchen equipment are brand new. The house is as clean as it can be and best of all, it is clutter-free. Simply elegant and not meant for the Bourbon Street Rebel Rouser. True New Orleans Architecture. Great location!,

Great location House Needs Fixing Up

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time at this house because it is big and we did Thanksgiving there with our extended family.

This house could be really terrific as it has wonderful bones and a superb location. Yard is big and has an exterior kitchen but when we arrived it was dirty and unkempt looking. The interior was much cleaner but if you open the kitchen cabinets there was a layer of grime and disorder that made me feel a bit uncomfortable.

When I rent out my houses I always put all personal stuff locked away and make sure that all cabinets are extremely organized and orderly. No sticky funk on the surfaces, no dirty napkins shoved in a drawer nor half drunk liquor bottles hurled in the cupboard.

The dining room and exterior porch need attending to. Paint chipping and dead plants are not welcoming.

However there are good TV's in every room, nice clean towels, shampoo provided and the owner did come and clean the outside when asked.

For this place to get to 5 stars one would need to repaint, upgrade some of the furniture and really steam clean the interior big time.

The outside need two serious days of gardening and the rubbish (old defunct chairs) cleaned out.

The owner is nice and I do hope he'll put some more effort into this lovely home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the info Doni. I intend to address all of these issues. The reason for the dead plants is that I received two water bills upwards of $1000 which we think is due to the automatic sprinkler system. We cannot find any leaks and the water board has been promising an investigation for over 5 months. We have had to shut down the sprinkler system as a result. I will have the cleaning crew work on the cabinets and other issues as soon as we have a break in occupancy. We will do everything possible to bring this property up to 5 star status as we want every guest to have the best experience possible! Thanks so much! Stephen

5 days in New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 came to New Orleans for our granddaughter's Tulane graduation May 20, 2017. We rented the house primarily for its location which was close to the Tulane campus. It was perfect in many ways......clean, comfortable, well equipped in the kitchen, close to the trolley on St. Charles, charming in its details and perhaps best of all, a wonderful small grocery store right across the street which had most everything one would need and open 7 days a week!

The owner was very responsive to any questions and issues provided new bikes when it was discovered that the ones at the house were missing.

It is not likely that we will visit NO again but we can all highly recommend this home.

Nice home and location - recommend it

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home in a great location. Features to enjoy - nice front porch with chairs to sit and relax, great, large yard... very comfortable, clean interior of the home - kitchen with modern applicanes and Keurig, two large bedrooms and two full baths. Location is a great benefit - very walkable area (a beautiful area to walk) - easy access to all area of New Orleans. Another benefit - nice market across the street from the home - very convenient.

Stayed here with the wife, baby and in laws. A great place for the family to stay...

Very comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5. The home is well furnished and kitchen well equipped. Outdoor patio and grill area with large yard makes for a great place to hang out for drinks and conversation. The home is spacious clean and very comfortable. The owner, Steve, was very responsive and came to the house within minutes to handle a small problem caused by the utility company. He is a great guy. We will definitely stay here again.
