|Minimum Stay||30 nights|
Furnished 1 Bedroom 1 bathroom with Huge Walk-In Shower Only with a Full Kitchen in a Great Neighborhood. This location is quiet and convenient for travelers wanting to experience the garden district and streetcar traveling to wonderful attractions such as the French Quarter, Audubon Park & Zoo, Magazine St. Antique Shops, Uptown Universities Tulane/Loyola, shopping and of course eating at some of the most terrific restaurants in New Orleans within walking distance.
This is one of the best locations to stay while in New Orleans. Close to all Uptown and The Garden District and Magazine boutique shops only a 10 minute walk. The property is located on the Street Car line which gives you easy access to downtown and all the attractions and also some of the best jogging in the outdoors while site seeing.
Huge Garden Courtyard to gather with friends and BBQ while in a gated community.
Very nice location. Street car line out front under renovation but bus stops there instead. Covered parking was a nice bonus. We did not drive downtown, just left our car and rode the bus and streetcar. Apartment perfect for 2, 3rd person would have to be very short to sleep on small sofa.
My husband and I live in Florida. We've both visited New Orleans multiple times. We looked forward to a nice long weekend and opportunities to see some old favorites as well as new things. There were no reviews for this property when we booked our stay, and that is now a red light for me in future bookings. We're good, experienced, serious travelers and have absolutely loved three other VRBO properties in France and Oregon. Pretty much everything about this property fit our needs, but the negatives made for quite a miserable experience. The bed was very comfy, the location was perfection, we appreciated not having to walk up stairs with baggage, we're wonderful walkers so trekking a bit to catch the trolley or bus wasn't a problem, even with the on-going construction work. Traffic noise was very minimal and hardly noticed. The property was immaculate (we were the first rental). The azaleas all over the place were in full and gorgeous bloom. So, the problem is, the shower was not enclosed. The pictures now on the website show and describe a "large luxury glass shower with marbled tile, beautiful vessel sink and vanity." Not so much; I have pictures of the non-existent "luxury glass shower with marbled tile and beautiful vessel sink and vanity." Not even a shower curtain. Three little synthetic bath rugs were placed around the edge of the shower stall. Of course they became soaked and we hung them outside on the railing, where they never dried because it rained a little bit each day. The tiled bath floor became soaked and thereby really potentially dangerous. We could have complained. New Orleans was in the middle of the worldwide wrestling competition...there was literally nowhere else to go.
All in all, we had a wonderful time because we love NOLA and we travel enough to always carry a healthy grain of salt. But as far as our NOLA experience is concerned, this was quite a surprising negative. This property was not ready to have been rented on numerous levels.
This is a lovely apartment in the Garden District. I was hesitant about renting because there were no reviews at the time, but the place was clean and nicely furnished, and the lack of reviews was because the property manager, Craig, was just starting to use VRBO. Craig was responsive with my questions leading up to and during my stay. I did not get some information prior to my stay (check-in and -out procedures, parking information, etc.)... if that happens to you just give Craig a call and he will tell you everything you need to know.
Having an off-street parking space was very nice. The wifi worked well, and the A/C was great. The apartment comfortably accommodates 2, but 3 would be a stretch, as the couch is not a pull-out and there were no extra linens for a third person. The ad says pets considered, but when I inquired about bringing my 20lb, 11 yr old dog my request was denied, so be sure to ask about that if it's important to you. There is a moderate amount of street noise, as the bedroom faces St. Charles Ave. Also, there is currently construction on the trolley line (April 2014), and the trolley does not run for several blocks in both directions from the apartment. There is a bus that connects between the two points, but don't expect to walk out the front door and hop on the trolley until the construction is completed there.
The Garden District is a very nice place to stay. There were several nice restaurants within walking distance, and it was very easy to get into the French Quarter. The courtyard of the apartment building was quaint and lovely. I also felt safe staying there. Overall I recommend this rental.
