Wonderful house by the park
We stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time walking through the park, enjoying the Morning Call Cafe and the animal life. There was always a parking spot within a house or two. The amenities were perfect. We would definately stay here again!
The place was immaculate with all the amenities we crave - clean, crisp linens, lots of towels, modern kitchen. The location is great - a quick walk to streetcar stops and bus stops (a car is really unnecessary, especially if you’ve tried to drive or park downtown). We bought Jazzy Passes and went everywhere. It’s a lovely neighborhood with friendly folks, a quaint bar around the corner, a coffee shop nearby and definitely be sure to walk to City Park for the coffee and Beignets at the little 24 hour place. Steve and Brian were so easy to work with - very friendly, communicative and accommodating. Can’t say there’s anything I’d change! Thank you so much!!
The house was very clean. Located in a great area. Easy walk to the trolley. Close to restaurants. The owners have been great to work with. In contact with you from the booking all the way to the day you arrive. Look forward to staying here again.
Great location, super comfortable stay in Mid-City
Four of us spent a few fun filled days in NOLA/Mid-City at this really cool classic shotgun home. The place was very clean and neat and our host, Brian, was exceptionally accommodating and accessible. The neighborhood and neighbors were young, pleasant and friendly. This home is within walking distance to good food, city park, the botanical gardens, Second Line Brewing (worth the stay in-and-of-itself) and the trolley station for easy access to the downtown districts and events. We were able to park our car and walk or trolley all over town. We will definitely try to stay here again for our next trip to New Orleans.
Very Clean, cute little shotgun in a quiet neighborhood. Loved the close proximity to City Park. The Park is AWESOME!! Love the Spanish moss covered Live Oaks, the sculpture Garden, and a Great little café for morning beignets and coffee!!
They have many of the things you take for granted, like laundry and dishwasher detergent, salt, pepp
It made life simplier. thanks
