Guestbook comments from the owner

Herb's Home was perfect for our NOLA vacation. The house is located in a picturesque New Orleans neighborhood walking distance to most places, including restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops AND just a 5 min. walk to Jazz Fest which was amazing to be so close to all of the action. We took short taxi's rides to all of our favorite Music Halls, hung out in the back yard and really enjoyed the place!!! Getting to know Herb was awesome too, he knows everything about the city and it was really helpful to have some local advice.

Most amazing host and property!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived Herb made us feel as if we were there visiting a fried. The apartmemt has all of the amenities you could ever think of (fully stocked kitchen, more towels than you would ever need, great working AC and even fruits and bottles of water). The apt was super clean, a very short ride to French Quarter and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. Staying with Herb was the best decision we made for our trip to NOLA and we will for sure return. If you get a chance to sit down with Herb for a history lesson, you won't be disappointed. Herb, thank for your attentiveness and treating us like family!

Quiet, comfortable, and incredibly hospitable and friendly host. Herb is great. And the hidden away courtyard in back is an oasis but large enough to host large parties after Jazz Fest. You'll love it!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Good location and quiet neighborhood. Herb is most gracious and very helpful to help with local flavors and transportation modes. Herb presented us with arrival gifts of wine, and ensured fresh fruit, snacks and chilled water were available during our stay. We also enjoyed a pleasant 45 minute piano concert after a day of sightseeing. Not sure if the piano playing was intentional, but enjoyed it nonetheless. Thank you, Herb for for our stay in New Orleans! We look forward to our next stay.
