Perfect House for New Orleans experience
Beautiful home that was totally perfect for our large group of 12. The home is impressive and had plenty of spaces to gather as a group or seek privacy when desired. We could easily walk to French Quarter and Garden District. Check in and check out were really easy and Tom was great to work with. Don't hesitate in booking a stay at this property.
We had ten adults to stay for a medical conference. It was great to be able to come and go and have a central location. The house is beautiful, with old world charm but still comfortable and user friendly with modern conveniences. Not all bathrooms are en suite, but we didn't have a problem sharing and no one had a problem getting hot water for showers. The rooms connect to each other and not all doors closed completely, but with door stops it's ok. The upstairs patio is a great way to spend an evening. Thank you so much for a lovely stay.
Beautiful, historical home.
There were eleven of us high school girlfriends who came to NOLA for food & fellowship. Tom was extremely kind and welcoming. The house is large, with a lovely kitchen and plenty of room. The seating options in the living room (parlor) are very uncomfortable. There is a vintage sofa, and straight-back, wooden chairs. For eleven of us, this room was the logical place to congregate. The bathrooms need repair also (poor water pressure in a sink, poor lighting and shower doors off track). We realize that caring for an old house is a big job, but given the fee for rental, we felt that our facilities should have been more up-to-date. This house is a "grand old lady" and, with just a few tweaks, it will be perfect for a large group.
Historic NOLA Charm Galore!
Tom was beyond accommodating prior to and during our trip. We asked to check in early and he had his father drive out to meet us. His stories and "mini tour" of the French Quarter and Esplanade Ave was amazing and gave the whole trip such a personal touch. The home was amazing and fit our group perfectly. The upper level porch was perfect to sit and enjoy a cocktail before heading out for our group festivities. It's only a short uber ride away from the Irish Channel, French Quarter, and Frenchman Street so it was TRULY the perfect location. I know I'll be staying here again next time I come back with a group!!
Thanks for everything Tom and Rene!
Beautiful home with plenty of space in a good location
Tom's property was lovely. We were so impressed with the restoration work that he had done to convert the place to its original splendor! We were there with 10 girls for a bachelorette weekend and the house had everything we needed: lots of bathrooms, plenty of space to spread out and a well equipped kitchen. The location was close enough to walk to both the FQ and City Park during they day (and was a short/cheap uber ride at night). Tom was very responsive whenever we had questions and he and his father gave us lots of history and ideas of things to do in the area.
Thank you Kalin!
I so enjoyed having you stay and make the place home for that time period. You were most understanding and easy to communicate with even with the orchestration of changes we made together where we had to maneuver through the site as unfriendly as it sometimes is. The old place is made more special to me by those like you who make fond memories here. Many blessings! Tom
Spacious, Historic Home
We had a group of 12 stay at Tom's house for a weekend and it was a great space for a group of our size. The history of the home really adds to the character, and the location was a quick, convenient uber ride to the quarter. Tom was very responsive with communication, as was his dad who let us in the house. They were flexible with our travel plans which is always appreciated. Would highly recommend!
Thank you Lauren! I am always happy when guests appreciate the historical aspects of the stay because that is what most separates the New Orleans experience of my home from others in this city and from other cities with vibrant nightlife and restaurant scenes. You too, were very easy to work with and most grateful and undemanding; that goes a long way with me, especially when I am turning over the keys to my home to total stranger and because homes such as mine take a great deal of TLC to maintain correctly. As long as I am here doing this, you are always welcome! T
There is a children's amusement park with rides at nearby City Park where is also located, The New Orleans Museum of Art and golf courses. A train runs during certain times of the year all around the park. Morning Call coffee house is located in the park and serves traditional Beignets (French donuts covered in powdered sugar) and famous coffee and chicory Au lait.
