Comfy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great place to stay in NOLA, and not break the bank doing it, this is the place. Close to City Park and trolley lines. Comfortable beds. A kitchen with top line appliances and plenty of silverware, plateware, and cookware. Quiet neighborhood and never had to park more than 10 feet from the door. Great communication with Brian the owner. Would stay here again. Thanks.

If you're visiting New Orleans this is definitely the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using vrbo and our first time to ever rent a house. The house is a dream! Every amenity you could think of and more. The beds were so comfortable, after a long day of walking and sight seeing they were the perfect welcome home. The only thing I can say that's remotely negative is the street parking, no driveway, but we never had a problem parking in front of the house. If we're ever in New Orleans again we will definitely positively stay here again!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our little NOLA oasis! Great location with easy walking access to spooky cemeteries, City Park and Canal streetcar with direct line to French Quarter. Perfect size for our family of four with updated kitchen and bath and in a quiet neighborhood. Co-owner Steve lives next door in this cute shotgun double and is very personable and happy to offer recommendations. We highly recommend staying here!

Clean, comfortable and up-to-date.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this New Orleans shot gun. Everything we could possibly need was provided. The owners were extremely accommodating throughout the rental process and during our stay. It is very close to City Park (walking distance) and just a short Uber ride to any other New Orleans attraction. We would definitely stay here again.
