Chris and I love New Orleans. He was born and raised here, I moved to New Orleans in 1988 from Wellington, Ohio. We have 2 wonderful children one of which was adopted locally. This home is our family home, we lived here until shortly after hurricane Katrina. It took use 5 Years to renovate and re-restore the home after the hurricane, even though we did not sustain flood we had wind damages. We chose to turn this home into a vacation home only because we love the historic feel of this home and wanted to share it with visitors of our great city. We love it!!

What makes this House unique
I know you will enjoy the architecture this home has to offer. there are 2 fireplace on the first floor and 3 on the 2nd floor which add interesting architectural element to the home. I enjoy relaxing on the back patio listening to the sounds of the steam boats whistling along the Mississippi River.

Great house plenty of room for everyone!
Fun place and easy Uber ride to downtown
Cute home with a lot of character
The house comfortably fit 10 girls. We enjoyed the space of the house, back patio, and parking spaces. The community is quiet and friendly. We walked to the ferry, which was a short walk away, and to the cafe. The location is convenient for people who want to stay away from the noise with quick access to downtown either through ferry or Uber.
The manager was quick to reply to my questions and left step by step directions about arrival and departure! Great people to work with.
Disappointed in the quality and location of this rental
We stayed at this home while attending a wedding in New Orleans. I have rented several homes through VRBO and 1 in the New Orleans area. We would not rent this house again for several reasons. First of all the images shared on VRBO must be at least 10 years old as the house has aged significantly since these images were taken. Two of the bedrooms are not really bedrooms and have walk throughs. No one could get the shower to work in he downstairs bathroom in the back of the house, I suggest instructions be left in that bathroom as the faucets are not standard. The front door could easily be broken into and has visible gaps air and bugs can come through with ease. The biggest concern we had is a fire safety one. You are only given 1 key and the same key must be used to lock the house up from INSIDE the home but that one key is needed to open 2 of the doors meaning 1 exit is not accessible in the event of a fire unless the person with the key unlocks both doors during a fire. The home is also located in a questionable area of the city and the ferry does not run on any specific time, it leaves when it's full, so if you have to be somewhere on time, it is NOT the way to travel.
On the positive side, the owner is very nice and was immediately available to answer a question when we had one. There were plenty of towels. The wifi worked. There were plenty of washers and dryers (not sure why 3 sets are needed though?)
Unfortunately, like I said above. We would not stay here again nor would we recommend staying at this home. I don't believe I have ever said that about a VRBO property. In fact we are staying at one in Vegas this November and are looking forward to it!
Great house, not for more than 3 couples
The house was amazing but the room set up was not good for couples looking to have a great time in New Orleans. 3 of the rooms are conjoined so you have to walk pass each room to get to the other side of the house. Other than that I loved the house, enough dish ware, towels, and everything you need to have a comfortable relaxing stay. Will definitely recommend it, but I think it’s great for a couple with kids, not 5 couples.
Great price, location and clean. I would truly recommend this home for a family vacation getaway.
Thank you! We are so happy you enjoyed the Home!
Perfect home for a girls getaway. Elizabeth M.
This home had plenty of space for nine gals. All the rooms were very spacious and home was very charming. The neighborhood was very quiet with shopping center minutes away. We all felt very safe and comfortable in this beautiful home. Would definitely rent again. Thanks Jami for everything.
This property is located with in 1 mile from French Quarter if traveled across by the ferry boat across the river. Its 10 minute drive to French Quarter Area. It is 6 miles away from city by Interstate.
