About Al and Dina Perkins

Well established partner at a law firm and wife who know what it means to love New Orleans

Al and Dina Perkins purchased this house in 2014

Why Al and Dina Perkins chose New Orleans

My wife and I are out-of-state transplants who've been rooted in Louisiana over 20 years and have a true love for the culture, history and uniqueness of New Orleans. We purchased this home in the heart of the city as our support of the rebirth of the city and the Freret Street neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy playing tourist on the weekend to visit new places of business and bask in the culture and cuisine. Especially for special events such as Jazz & Heritage Festival and Essence Music Festival.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect !!! It is in a great location and close to everything . It was $6 to use Uber to go to and from the French Quarter and great restaurants down the street . The backyard and seating area is perfect for a large group. . Al was prompt and followed up once we got to the house and was responsive to any questions . The pictures do not do this house justice - and master bed is soo comfortable . Hands down best VRBO house we have rented .

This is truly the best!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we stay at Dina and Al's place. They are by far the best hosts. The place is impeccable! We had one small issue with the smoke detector b/c the battery was dying and it kept beeping but it was fixed right away. I would recommend putting a long mirror in the spare bedrooms but it isn't a must. I use HomeAway quite often and the Perkin's home is probably the best home yet. Beautiful home from the outside to the inside. If I could give them a 10 I would. Thanks again Dina and Al for making our stay perfect. Hopefully, we can come back and stay in your home next year for Jazz Fest 2018. Debbie and Carlos

Incredible home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so beautifully decorated and comfortable. The backyard and porch were adorable. Liked the fact we could easily walk to restaurants and coffee shops. Will definitely return if we are ever back in New Orleans for vacation!
