About Connie Walker

We love the urban scene in New Orleans and have chosen to live in the midst of all of the action...vibrant Marigny, the Frenchmen Street Entertainment District and the historic French Quarter. We walk every where and barely use a vehicle. We thrive on all of the music festivals, sporting events and fabulous local cuisine. What's not to love about the culture and cuisine of New Orleans? We invite you to share our experience as locals.

Connie Walker purchased this cottage in 1983

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a seamless, wonderful time at Casa Conchita, from initial inquiry to check-out. We received a response to our initial inquiry within 24 hours and received very clear, easy instructions about the entire process. The house itself is simply beautiful, charming, and cozy - real Cyprus throughout and each room well-appointed, yet very simply tasteful. We were right on Washington Square Park, just off Frenchmen Street - a perfect location: near everything, but quiet enough to close the door and relax in luxury, either inside or out in the adorable courtyard sitting next to the calming fountain. Our hosts were delightful, helpful, and a joy. We fully intend to re-book and to spread the word to all of our friends headed to New Orleans! - JH

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was spectacular. We were an extended family of 10 celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary in New Orleans. The property is as amazing as the pictures represent. Both cottages have been renovated to maintain the phenomenal character and charm of the property while updating the amenities for modern day convenience. Connie is as gracious and wonderful of a host as you will ever find. And on top of that, you are steps away from the incredible music and restaurants on Frenchmen Street as well as walking distance to the French Quarter. If you are looking to take in all that being in the heart of New Orleans has to offer, you will not find a better place.

Our stay from Nov 1 to Nov 6, 2016

  • 5 of 5

A group of us (50-something guys who get together every couple of years for 'boys week') rented this property from 11/1/2016 to 11/6/2016. I was the coordinator.

I have only good things to say about the stay. The property was first-class and also very well located. Connie, who manages the property, stays in a different place that is part of the same set of buildings, and was thus easily available - not that we ever needed her for anything, since all was as promised. We rented the 3-bedroom property on the ground floor as well as the 2-bedroom property directly above it, in effect getting a 5-bedroom house to ourselves.

Each morning we got coffee from a nearby place (too lazy to make it ourselves) and sat in the courtyard, waking up slowly before setting out.

Some of us wandered about the city while others just lazed at 'home' - lots of room, high ceilings, well furnished, nothing to complain about.

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 high school friends from the UK could not have been happier with our stay at the Casa Conchita. The home itself is stunning and exceeded all expectations, the photo's online only show a glimpse of the how truly amazing this house is. Lots of space, high ceilings, unique decor the list goes on. We were all first time visitors the the New Orleans area and the host Connie was a joy to work with, from recommendations of places to visit, eat and drink we had such a great time. Connie made us all feel welcome and was on hand and available throughout our stay. The location was perfect within a short walking distance to Frenchman street and only a 10 minute walk to the French Quarter as a young group we walked everywhere!! Although we ate out most of the time the kitchen was fully stocked and we had plenty of towels and bedding. Which is fantastic when most of the group came from overseas.

I would certainly stay again, who knows maybe we will all make the trip again for another high school reunion.

Wonderful Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our group really enjoyed the courtyard and we were fortunate to have nice evenings that allowed us to sit outside. The house is full of charm and kept immaculate. The kitchens were well equipped as well as the bathrooms with plenty of towels. The location is ideal, being about a 10 minute to the French Quarter. We arrived in New Orleans in the morning and Connie was very accommodating allowing us to store our luggage until the 3pm check-in time.

Everything was just wonderful. I would certainly stay here again.

A reunion with great friends

  • 5 of 5

We had searched for a place in New Orleans close to music and entertainment for a group of global friends for a reunion. The "Casa" was a great place to relax and enjoy the town. Connie was great to work with even after I had messed up the arrival dates. She make the adjustment and was a great host greeting us at our arrival and making sure we were comfortable. We could walk to great music and places to eat. House is expertly remodeled in modern comfort, but still has the feel of New Orleans. Great to visit clubs and resturants, but even nicer to have a comfortable place to retreat to after a day or night on the town. Super memories and nice to have two full kitchens for coffee in the mornings and a little wine before dinner out. IT was a great time plus an easy walk or Uber to the entire city. We hope to be back.
