Fabulous, friendly, great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the apartment instead of the Jazz Cottage, it was fabulous! Location is perfect, safe and easy to get to Quarter by bus, bike share or Uber in under 10 minutes. A few blocks up there is a collection of excellent local restaurants. And for Jazzfest the location can’t be beat! Apartment was well-appointed, clean, spacious, comfortable and cool. And Billye is delightful. Having wine, snacks and breakfast fixings waiting for me in the fridge was amazing.

If wifi is important to you check if it’s installed yet, it wasn’t for my trip but went to the coffee shop for emergency wifi use! Highly recommend - it might not be available for Jazzfest next year because I want to come back!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 4 of 5

Loved staying at Billye's. Like all great hosts she knew when to be there and when not. Clean, cool apartment minutes walk from Jazzfest fairgrounds. Enjoyed morning coffee, evening drink in her pretty garden - and how nice that she had a bottle of wine and some nibbles for us when we arrived. Would have given 5 stars if not for the twin beds - but we managed. ;-) Also, not that you really want to watch tv on vacation but after 8 hours of crowds and music, great to have a big screen tv to watch the ball game!

Funky Cottage

  • 5 of 5

First, mid-city is a great location. Straight down Esplanade to the French quarter, Frenchman street, etc. Many good local restaurants.

The place has a bedroom, sitting room, small kitchen area and bathroom.

The host had eggs, cheese, fruit in the fridge.

No modern but cozy.

Loved Jazz Fest

  • 4 of 5

Billy was fantastic and had the authentic New Orleans cottage stocked and prepared for us. This is a place you go to when you want to feel like a "local". We loved it way better than a hotel. Esplanade is also very convenient for anything in the city.
