La Boheme is an all-inclusive 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment in a large Greek Revival home, consisting of several apartments with this rental apartment taking up half of the entire ground floor level. The apartment sleeps up to 4 people in the 2 queen size beds, and each bedroom has its own bath with step-in shower. A newly remodeled full-size eat-in kitchen and beautifully appointed living room round out the interior, while the front veranda and master bedroom side porch add to the spacious ambience.

These are the people that are your hosts and soon-to-be friends that you will want to re-visit again and again! The area boasts some of New Orleans' best local flavor restaurants and unique watering holes. I share the other side of the lower house with my two dogs, Flora and Tommy who also enjoy meeting new guest.

Great Place to Stay!!!

Had a great experience! The place was just as described, clean, and in a great location. Richard was accommodating with our early arrival and late departure! Would definitely stay here again!

LOVED our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place...the neighborhood, the apartment, Tommy and Flora the resident pups, Richard and his assistant John... Just a wonderful place to relax and recover when we weren't running all over this special city. We walked EVERYWHERE from the Bywater: French quarter, Frenchman street, all the way to the WWII museum... But there's some really great stuff within blocks of Richards place. Wonderful bars, restaurants (we ate at the Country Club a block away for our 10 year anniversary last night and it was fabulous) , coffee shops. A highlight was hanging on the front porch with Richard, John and the pups, sharing stories and laughs. We highly recommend Richards place.. I know it will be our go-to spot when we come back to Nola.

Authentic NOLA Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Staying here gave us the real flavor of NOLA!! The house has so much character - a real New Orleans vibe! And its great on space! We liked being close to the French Quarter, but not in the French Quarter. In the evenings, we would come back to our charming little neighborhood, where we found several great restaurants and bars just blocks away! Richard was very accommodating, and we enjoyed our chats on the front porch. But the dogs, Tommy and Flora, stole the show!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our needs. We were able to walk easily to Frenchment Street and the French Quarter but were still close to various restaurants, bars, and shops. The location was the perfect place to be able to do tourist things but still get an authentic experience. Richard was beyond hospitable and the house was comfortable and clean. Extra bonus for the sweetest dogs on the property!!

The place was super clean and super comfortable. Everything was more than I expected. The area felt pretty safe even at night time while walking. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything that we would need-- but we ate out all the time. There is a small pub exactly 70 steps (I counted it) from the house that is open until 2 AM and it had a small menu but good food for a reasonable price. If I ever go back to New Orleans I would most definitely stay at this house again !!

When we arrived, we were greeted by multiple people! Renter never advised about the multi house being shared, never mentioned that we had to put up with two dogs. The house smelled HORRIBLE like the dogs just urinate everywhere! Had to go spend $200.00 on bedding, cleaning supplies and most importantly ODOR ELIMINATORS! Very bad experience! I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND

Owner's Response: Owner response Apt is listed as apt in Greek revival house, not a single stand alone house. Guest issues with other tenants on site coming and going with their lives seem difficult to understand. Apt is totally private and other apts do not interact with it. Also I lists my dogs on my profile with vrbo site. Also reviews from most other guest also mention the dogs in positive view. These guests obviously did not read profile and reviews. Guest informed us upon arrival that one of them was allergic to dogs. We were not informed when they booked apt about health concerns. Obviously I would have recommended another place. The dog issue seemed to dictate their feelings about their stay. Still with this medical issue they still chose to stay. My dogs are not allowed in the apt other than guests who allow them in. My dogs are house trained and have NEVER urinated in the house. I myself have dog door to allow dogs access to the outside. I clean the guest apt thoroughly and if guests still find issues with it they can inform me as I live directly next door. These guests said nothing about anything being amiss. I saw them several times during their stay and inquired how things were, their response was always "just fine". As for odor, my central air is connected to their side, so the air in both my unit and the rental are circulated together. The only odors I smelled was the smoking of cigars and the odor of some other powerful substance they smoked on their side. I inform all guests of my no smoking inside policy. Guests may smoke outside ANYTHING they want. I have ashtrays on the patio areas. These guests ignored my no smoking inside policy. I let it go since they seemed pleasant and seemed to be enjoying their stay here, New Orleans and Essence Festival. All I can say is that if they had issues, they should have let me know as I am directly next door and I could have found other accommodations or found source of issues they claimed. I am there to make your stay comfortable. They said nothing for 4 days and so I assumed all is okay. If anyone has issues, let the owner know. It is unfair to write a negative letter after their stay when something could have been addressed right then. I have a good quality product and the many positive reviews bear that out. I would suggest to all looking to be my guests to read those many positive reviews.
