Great Location - Needs some Maintenance

  • 4 of 5

Our party of 6 loved the location but definitely noticed some maintenance issues with the property.

1. The shower in the first floor bathroom (behind the kitchen) was stuck in water saving mode. All we got were trickles of water, and no, I didn't call the maintenance guy. There were other showers that were usable.

2. Hot water in some of the upstair bathrooms never really arrived (we were told it took time)

3. Security on the front door, there really wasn't any. If the door wasn't bolted shut it would swing open, which happened early one morning as one of the guest had a early flight. There are plenty of people walking past at all hours.

4. Towel bars and TP holders were coming out of the wall, light bulbs needed replacing...little things.

5. Generally the back patio was perfect, if a little over grown...it was hard to find the pond at the back of the lot.

6. The location of the house is convenient to both the French Quarter, Magazine Street, and the Garden District

7. The cats were sweet. The turtles were there, but hard to see.

All in all, a lovely space.

It was a great time had by all, great location, and plenty of room for our party of 14.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property! We stayed here while attending a conference, very nice and private rooms. The property is minutes away from the Convention Center, French Quarters, and Downtown. Don't miss out on the juice bar a block away...the food was incredible!

Some of the beds could have been more comfortable. AC worked great which is very important in NOLA

  • 3 of 5

All was good except for some of the beds. Needed to be more comfortable. Also, the downstairs bedroom cannot be accessed without going outside, down two steps and the up three. Was hard for my elderly parents. This wasn't clear in the description. Overall we were satisfied.

This was the ideal location for our group for a girls' weekend.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean and spacious in a lovely part of the Garden District. Perfect for a girls' weekend with plenty of bathrooms and nice patio. Also, a very short Uber ride to the French Quarter.
