Outstanding accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This property undoubtedly lives up to its fantastic reputation. The place was clean, quaint and is in the best location in New Orleans. The owners were friendly, respectful and very responsible and it was a pleasure renting from them. We highly recommend this property as it was a major contributor to the wonderful two months we spent in New Orleans!

The perfect New Orleans accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this place! We stayed for 2 months and would easily come back to this rental in the future. The owners are friendly, accommodating and responsible. The place itself is clean, fully furnished and is in the best location in New Orleans, which gave us a stunningly beautiful Garden District living experience. Thank you to the owners who made our trip such an enjoyable one!

perfect new orleans apartment

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental is great. The apartment is very nice with plenty of space and everything you need to feel comfortable. The owners are extremely nice and helpful but still give you your own space. Having a washer/dryer in the apartment was especially convenient. Beyond the apartment itself, the location is excellent with shops, restaurants and lots of great places to walk and bike all around. Its as safe as it gets in New Orleans and the property owners provide a book with lots of info on the area and keep you in the loop when it comes to safety in the area. I would stay here again and highly recommend it to friends and family.

Garden District Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in this lovely apartment within an historic home in the Garden District. It is exactly as it appears in the VRBO ad and was very clean and well maintained. The owners are quite friendly and helpful and responded immediately to any questions. The location is perfect for sightseeing in New Orleans. It is one block off Magazine Street with lots of restaurants, bars, and shopping, and a few short blocks to St. Charles Avenue and the streetcar. We rarely used our car as the streetcar and buses are very convenient. We highly recommend the WWII Museum, easily accessible by streetcar. On Magazine Street, there are two fabulous gelato places, La Divina Gelateria and Sucre. Also there is a CC's Coffee Shop and A Broken Egg for great breakfasts. There is too much shopping and too many restaurants within walking distance to list here. Fabulous location and beautiful apartment!

New Orleans

Just like home...

  • 5 of 5

I was in town for family business, and needed a comfortable, convenient location. This is a charming apartment, very similar to those I rented 'way back when I was in school here - only this place is much nicer then those ever were. It's not the usual "vacation rental"- it's furnished like a real home, and it's obvious that Yancey and Lonnie care about their guests' comfort. Any questions I had were immediately answered, and though our schedules conflicted and we never actually saw each other, it was good to know they were available, if I needed them.

If you're interested in partying, this is not the place for you - you'd do much better to stay in the French Quarter, where the action is. This is a quiet neighborhood, and though there are lots of restaurants and shops on nearby Magazine St, the vibe is family-oriented. Three good groceries and several pharmacies are located in the neighborhood, as well as "Little Fisherman" for the best boiled seafood - enjoy your crayfish on the apartment's little patio. There are numerous coffee shops and two very good ice cream shops close at hand, which made life a little sweeter.

Though I was not often out at night, I would suggest you be careful - the streets in this part of town are dark, and the sidewalks can be treacherous! Not a bad idea to carry a mini-flashlight, especially if you are wearing heels...

In a perfect world, the beautiful antique 4-poster bed would be a little closer to the ground - but that's just me, and I am "vertically challenged". There was a handy stool next to the bed, which made everything work out fine. The mattress was specially made to fit the bed, and was one of the most comfortable I have had the pleasure to sleep on - very nice sheets, too.

I would definitely stay here again, and would especially recommend this apartment to those staying several weeks and the more mature traveller. It's a great location for exploring the city, and the neighborhood has lots to offer.

Garden District/Irish Channel Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment was exactly as listed. Very convenient, 2 blocks from bus, 4 blocks from street car, parking was easy to find near the house (though the city could pave the streets to make it easier to place the car).there are restaurants (including Commanders Palace), bars, all types of shops and a small supermarket and drug store within a very short walk. The apartment was clean even though the house is very old and the kitchen was beautiful, loved the antique bed! I felt very comfortable there. The owners were extremely helpful not only was there a binder with all kind of information about NOLA on the coffee table but they personally were helpful. I have told everyone how much I enjoyed staying there. the only downside is that the sofa is white. When I ever get back to NOLA I hope this apartment is available.

Owner's Response: Thank you Christine! We would love to have you back.... Hopefully next years Saint's season is better than this year. BTW the benefit of the sofa is that the cushion covers can all be washed and bleached!
