Amazing Birthday/All Star/Mardi Gras Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, this property was AWESOME! Stately and historic, with modern conveniences (hello that refrigerator!). Perfect for our group of seven, and could've fit even more (if there were other couples). And some of THE most comfortable beds the folks in my group had ever slept in. The listing and photos are exactly what we got, and Deborah and Ray were very sweet and easy to work with. They answered texts and calls right away, and left us greek yogurt, orange juice, lemonade, a full fruit bowl and a king cake to enjoy on our weekend! Endless towels, glasses, dishes and kitchen appliances are available to use.

We planned to be in town on an insanely busy weekend - the NBA AllStar game and mardi gras parade season. It also coincided with my 30th birthday, and since NOLA is one of my favorite cities, we had to be there. The house is a 15-minute ride from the quarter, but we liked being more uptown and away from the noise when we were ready to actually get some sleep. The block is quiet, the neighbors are friendly, and there are two amazing restaurants just two blocks away - Jacque Imo's and La Casita.

Rent this place!

Jazz Fest Bliss!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here. The house was beautiful and well stocked. The air conditioning worked great which was key for the comfort of our party. The linens and beds were very comfortable and top quality. My only problem was that the blow up beds did not hold air and should either be patched or replaced. We had to go to Walgreens and purchase a blow up bed, also there is no hide a bed as shown in the photo. We only had ten people, but some do not want to sleep in the same bed. Great Location for a rental We love New Orleans and will be back. Thank you

Quaint Relaxing Stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall the experience of staying at the home was great. Growing up and managing a bed and breakfast, there were a couple of items that I would suggest be corrected to make this a 5 star home to rent. 1) install a hand rail on the stairwell going up to the loft bedroom fixed on the wall to add additional security when walking up and down the stairs 2) the flooring entering the master bedroom where the old heater grate is located is broken and creates a dangerous trip hazard. 3) The rear door in the kitchen does not feel secure and needs a more efficient way of locking as well as availability to enter and exit safely. 4) The front door knob is malfunctioning and causes the door to stick and difficult to open and secure.

Other than those minor issues, the home was in great shape for the age and the decorations and atmosphere made it feel comfortable to stay and feel like our home away from home. The outside cottage was convenient for additional guests that stayed there. The yard was well manicured and gazebo was inviting for relaxing. I would recommend this home to my friends to stay at in the future and will be reaching back to the owners when we travel again. 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Great Historical Home in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

A real historical charmer. The Greek Revival Cottage Home was more than that. This was my first vacation rental and was to accommodate 14 ladies for a bachelorette party. The home is located in a very quiet neighborhood with very friendly neighbors. We enjoyed the pergola/gazebo to sit under and enjoy our adult beverages. We didn't do any grilling but was a awe with the charcoal pits and gas grill. The ladies enjoyed overcast weather because the weekend we were here was the weekend of the Epic 500 year flood in Louisiana. But we were actually high and dry, just cool overcast weather that afforded our group a very enjoyable cool August weekend. We ladies did though throw one Awesome Epic Bachelorette Party New Orleans Style. Some of the reviews of this very nice historical place recited clutter. Our group enjoyed the exquisite chandeliers and grand furnishings. I gave you a real feel of that era. The ladies enjoyed wonderful conversations about the décor and it's history. This grand home was far away from all the noise of the city and the French Quarter, but close enough to experience it all for the weekend. Deborah was an excellent host that answered all of my call ad messages very promptly.

Thank you Deborah for providing so much literature and information about the Riverbend, Uptown/Carrolton, Garden District and the French Quarter, etc. Eating, shopping and so much more including the St Charles trolley to the Garden District and the French Quarter is just a few easy walking blocks away. I will definitely suggest this rental to my friends ad family. And with permission post to my Pinterest Board and Facebook Page. I hope whoever reads my review will find that I, along with my group of ladies enjoyed my stay and I know you will too. I hope to have an occasion in the near future to book the Historic Greek Revival Home in the near future.

Our Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The rental home was Great. Not a single bad thing about the home. Everything is within walking distance if you do not want to leave the area. The neighbors are great people and Deborah and Ray kept the house in tip top shape. We visited with a group of 9 and everyone slept comfortably. Looking back at things, I will suggest one thing: a handout with closest grocery store, and gas station. But that's neither here nor there when it comes to how much we LOVED the home. We have discussed it over and will for sure be visiting again. Thanks
