About Nicelle Herrington

All my life working in the entertainment industry both my husband and I know luxury. We are constantly inspired by the south and this amazing city of New Orleans. We wanted to take something that had been left for decay and turn it into to something beautiful. We feel the property is well designed, amazingly decorated and ready to be enjoyed in its full southern glory!

Nicelle Herrington purchased this house in 2012

Why Nicelle Herrington chose Esplanade Ridge

It had a quite elegance just decaying on the street behind us, we just had to bring it back to life again.

What makes this house unique

STEPS FROM JAZZFEST... You will not need a car, walking distance to cute restaurants and shops.. Bike to the French Quarter... This property was a labor of love and perfect for the discerning travel that wants to live like a local.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for our weekend bachelorette party. We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. House had everything we needed and more and was just a short Uber away from everywhere we wanted to be. Would definitely recommend!

Lovely NOLA home in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Nicelle's home! The house is spacious, updated, and comfy, with a big kitchen and dining room for a group, and a lovely outdoor porch surrounded by palm trees. The house is well located, just a 10-minute drive from the French Quarter. There is also a bike share dock just a 5-minute walk away, so you can rent a bike and cruise around the city in the sunshine. Highly recommend! Nicelle made everything easy for us -- check-in and check-out couldn't be simpler, and she left lots of great recommendations to see the city. Thank you for everything!

Very nice but it was advertised clearly as 4 bed room. It is a 3 bedroom so someone got to sleep on floor. Online info is misleading

Owner's Response: Wow I guess after 37 five star reviews I knew at one point I would get a random not so great review.. but I'm still shocked.. As advertised if you take time to read about the house it clearly states the house is 3 bedroom with an optional additional charge 4th bedroom as the studio next door. ( all 37 people before understood this). I checked this group in personally and even though this was not my fault I did everything in my power to remedy their misunderstanding as I want everyone to have an exceptional stay. My studio was already booked, but I did I get on the phone with a few good friends who also have vacation rentals and then I gave them 2 beautiful alternatives at a drastic discount walking distance to my house. They decided they did not want to have the extra room.. and asked about an air mattress. (I gave them one at no charge)To make things even easier for them, when they were at dinner I brought over the air mattress, inflated it and made the bed, so it would be ready and easy for them when they returned. I don't think many vacation owners would take this much time to help someone with their misunderstanding, and it really bothers me that they would then take the time to write a misleading and exaggerated review indicating that someone slept on the floor.. I feel like that is maliciously targeting my business.

House is gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Nicelle is cool and nice. She made everything easy. Quick to respond to all emails and inquires and gave us our space once at the property.

The house and property are beautiful. Everything was clean and we loved the decor. Felt very modern and spacious. Bonus, the beds were extremely comfortable!

The saltwater pool was delightful. It's right in her backyard but it doesn't feel invasive at all. The other side is surrounded by lush greenery. Felt like we were in a tropical oasis.

Would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone.
