Great property

  • 5 of 5

The property at the fantastic french quarter is fabulous. We enjoyed it very much, great location, interiors and service. But also the manager, Ms Ina, who was very kind and helpful, makes this place even more special. We recommend everybody to experience New Orleans while staying at Royal Street.

Rude manager, rodent issue, great location

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here for our wedding. Upon arriving the manager first tried to put us in the small carriage house and seemed annoyed when actually shown the email confirmation for the larger upstairs apartment. When we arrived, there were dishes in the dishwasher, wet towels/sheets in the washing machine and towels/sheets drying in the dryer. After the first night, we noticed rodent droppings in the kitchen and that rodents had chewed up some Kind bars we had brought and left (unopened) on the kitchen table. Upon inquiring about the rodents, the manager simply informed us that the house has mice and roaches from time to time because of proximity to the river. Fine, but perhaps give people notice of that so that they can put all edible items in the refrigerator. In response to the issues regarding droppings and dishes in dishwasher, the manager informed us that this was not a hotel, and that their cleaning person would not come back that day unless we paid her. The owner did offer a refund if we left that day, but that was a hollow offer since we were there for our wedding weekend, having booked the entire home for relatives. It is a great location and we did not let the attitude of the manager or the rodent issue ruin our wedding weekend. We would not stay here again, however. Too many other VRBO options in New Orleans.

Great location, beautiful home, wonderful caretaker

  • 5 of 5

You can walk to anything you need from this property. Bourbon st is one block over, shops, restaurants, cafe du monde- all are minutes away. Honestly though, leaving this beautiful home was difficult. The deck (gallery) was the perfect people watching spot. The house isn't can hear your neighbors downstairs clearly. Bring earplugs to sleep if you're sensitive to noise.

Ina, the caretaker, is delightful. Full of knowledge and recommendations, helpful, warm & welcoming.

Great location, elegant accomadations.

  • 5 of 5

Expansive terrace balcony in the heart of the French Quarter. Very generous room filled with eclectic decor and comfortable beds.

Very kind and flexible owner and manager.

Beautiful and secluded back garden. Only issue of relevance were the showers lacked pressure.

Location, location, and more

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our girls weekend. We rented both the 2nd floor of main house and the carriage house. We were able to walk or Uber everywhere very easily. Lovely balcony for afternoon/evening wine and back porch for morning coffee. This is a great property to enjoy New Orleans with a group of friends. We had a blast!!
