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.

Enjoyable stay

Richard was great. He allowed us an early morning (2 AM) check-in. He never bothered us the entire time we were there. The house is an older home but it was very nice.

We has a great experience! Our host Richard was wonderful and so we're his canine ambassadors Flora and Tommy. We loved sitting on the porch and exchanging stories with him. He told us about great local places to go. We had a great time and will not forget our trip!

Live like a local

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in New Orleans. The Bywater neighborhood is teeming with culture and hip places to eat and listen to music. The Quarter isn't too far to walk, and Frenchman Street is just around the corner.

Richard was a terrific host, and his co-hosts Tommy and Flora are the sweetest dogs you'll meet. The property had everything we needed!

Highly recommend this alternative to downtown - Live like a local

  • 4 of 5

La Boheme gave us the opportunity to experience life as a local in New Orleans. Close to cool restaurants with fabulous happy hours and delicious food. We enjoyed walking to and from the French Quarter every day either down Royal or Dauphine Streets or via Crescent Park along the river. We recommend checking out the local architecture and wandering around a bit in the evening when the neighborhood lights up and the friendly residents take their dogs out for walks. The neighborhood and weather calls for a beach! And while that's totally unrealistic - The Country Club - just one block away - has a lovely pool and fabulous restaurant that will totally round things out for any visitor.

Our host, Richard, made us feel at home in this spacious and comfortable apartment in his restored home.

We don't think staying in a hotel will give a visitor the same experience as staying here and so we highly recommend La Boheme.
