Nice place. We ended up having more people than we originally planned for, and the owner was very helpful in fitting us all in. Good area. Quick walk to a great breakfast spot. Plenty of towels and bedding. Kitchen was fully equipped. Exactly what we were looking for.

Wonderful stay in New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a great stay at the purple house. The house was exactly as stated in the description and matched the pictures. The kitchen had everything we needed! The St. Charles street car line is a 10 minute walk through a nice neighborhood and takes you right into the French Quarter. Checking in and out was easy and Ryan was a great host. When we come back, we'll be staying at the Purple House!

Nice stay in Purple house of Tulane

  • 5 of 5

In a middle-class neighbourhood, but safe and clean, we find the purple house of Tulane.

It is an old house, but very clean . Not very big, but not small at all.

All the equipment is brand new: bath, sink, washing machine, etc.

The kitchen is very well equipped, with stylish new mugs, plates, forks and knifes. Coffee is provided.

The beds and linen are fresh; there are plenty of towels, champoo and soaps.

There is a cosy back yard, with a bbq; the owner provided the charcoal. There four chairs and three seats.

There is front porch with a swing seat.

Inside are just four chairs; to provide a high chair (for kids) would be the suggestion I'd like to make.

The owner, a friendly man, lives next door; in case you need something.

A car to visit New Orleans seems necessary; I didn't check the public transport.

Underwhelmed with this rental

  • 1 of 5

The reviews I read on this rental sold me. Unfortunately, this rental did not meet my expectations.

Positives: Close to public transportation to get to New Orleans, parking spot in front of the rental, Ryan was helpful with restaurant recommendations.

Negatives: This is an old property that needs a lot of work. There is a total lack of decor - ceilings, walls, baseboards, blinds are all the same color, devoid of pictures except for two small ones in the living room, bedroom has no bedside table, kitchen has no table and is probably too small to have one as the washer and dryer also reside in the kitchen.

The bathroom sink doesn't drain well, the location is by a busy street that made sleeping difficult. The 2nd bedroom is off of the living room and the closet doesn't have any doors, so all of the extra bedding, and fold out beds protrude.

I have been please with my experiences with other HomeAway rentals, but not with this one.
