Cozy place in a great location!
Enjoyed a long weekend with our family in the Big Easy here! Brian is an excellent communicator and responded quickly. His updated & clean house is in a quiet neighborhood. It's very close to City Park (which is amazing) and a few blocks from the trolley stop. There are plenty of extra towels and blankets, which is nice (and rare). We didn't use the kitchen much, but seemed to have most basics. It being a shotgun style, you go through the first bedroom to get to the second bedroom, with the bathroom being outside the first bedroom. For us, this setup suited us. We also found a couple local restaurants that we enjoyed: Clesi's and the Blue Crab Restaurant & Oyster Bar.
Thanks, Brian, for an enjoyable place to stay!
Awesome location, awesome place to stay!!
The house was very, very nicely kept and clean. It was the perfect location to walk to City Park, as well as many other locations! Loved staying at this house.
All aspects were perfect. Highly recommended.
Lovely little home that was the perfect size for our small family.
Steps from City Park, also easy to walk over to the streetcar and ride down into the French Quarter. We walked a few blocks over to Second Line Brewery and had drinks and foodtruck snacks in their beer garden. It was pretty great!
Lovely home, terrific location.
This house was ideal for my sister and I. We were a 10 minute walk from two streetcar lines, a 5 minute walk to a bus line. Most importantly for us, we were a 10 minute walk to the Morning Call coffee shop, where my son and his fiance married on the Saturday of our visit. Who knew they did catering in their lovely upstairs ballroom!
The house was clean, comfortable and convenient.
My only complaint, and a very minor one, I wish there was another towel rack in the bathroom.
I would happily rent this property again for my next visit to New Orleans.
Lovely apartment and fantastic location
We had a great weekend in Brian's rental with my sister-in-law and teenage niece on her first trip to New Orleans . The apartment is clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. We didn't really cook as we don't come to New Orleans to eat in, but the kitchen seemed well-equipped. The beds are very comfortable with good quality linens. The location was ideal for us -- an easy walk to City Park and the streetcar to downtown just a bit farther, grocery stores and restaurants nearby -- in a cute residential neighborhood away from the hard partying tourists. Brian and Steve were wonderful to deal with. We could not have been happier.
