Home Away From Home in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

I spent nearly three weeks in this lovely, well-appointed space in one of New Orleans' premier neighborhoods. I visit the city twice a year and have gotten familiar with many areas of town and many rentals, but this one is at the top of the list. Mike and Greg are the perfect hosts, ever helpful and never intrusive. Pictures don't do the space justice, and it's one of the quietest rentals I've experienced. City Park is an underappreciated jewel in the Crescent City's funky crown, and the surrounding neighborhood is packed with shops, great restaurants and grocery stores. You can't go wrong here: I definitely plan to return.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Great little cottage. Close to everything. Walking distance to numerous restaurants, cafes, a coffee shop and grocery stores. Also can walk to city park where you can pick up the trolley that takes you right to the French Quarters. I would definitely stay there again.

This place was perfect for us. It was located in a great neighborhood. We felt completely safe . The place was very clean. The bed was super comfy. Mike was very nice and greeted us when we arrived. Location is about 10 minutes from Bourbon St. and about 20 minutes from airport. We had a rental car and were able to park on the street. I would definitely stay here again!!!

Awesome Owners and a Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is everything you need when enjoying the scenes that New Orleans has to offer. A friend and I were there for Voodoo Fest weekend. We didn't stay in the apartment much other than sleeping. It was just a 20 minute walk to city park, which was super convenient. The owner's were very respectful of our privacy and accommodating. There are restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. No car rental was necessary as we used uber to the french quarter/uptown. 5 star experience and I will definitely be back! Thank you Mike and Greg.
