This stunning home is for the discriminating few.
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!!
Don't look any further. This house is hands down the most beautiful, comfortable place to stay. Not to mention is location right on Royal street. If you want a authentic New Orleans feeling. Stay here. It begins with the owner. Loved her from the miniute we spoke. Ina the caretaker was extremely accommodating and caring and fun ! And Randall
The driver who picked is up and took us back to the airport was awesome ! This is a package deal. We WILL be back! Like I said , don't look
any further !
our house was spacious, clean and beautiful the house manager, Ina, was very friendly and helpful in finding fun things to do and places to go I would recommend this property, and would stay again
This house was a picture perfect setting for our wedding! The picturesque courtyard, the beautiful decor, the amazing location—all make this home second to none. The house manager, Ina, was kind, responsive, and amazingly helpful, too.
Enjoying a cup of coffee on the huge balcony overlooking Royal Street, venturing out to explore the city on foot, watching the horse-drawn carriages clip-clop past the windows, savoring an evening cocktail in the shaded courtyard—it's a true New Orleans experience that we'll never forget and hope to visit again. We visit New Orleans often, but have never had an experience quite like this. Truly special.
We had an absolutely fantastic experience at this house. The location is perfect. We were within walking distance to everything in the French Quarter. The house is spectacular. Great décor, great art, and the rooms were more than large enough for a single person/couple. And the house manager, Ms. Ina, is simply divine! She is a truly great host who goes above and beyond the norm when it comes to VRBO or Air B&B hosts. She was gracious, professional, and a true lady. The beds were comfortable, the house was spotless, and the courtyard is serene. I can't say enough about how great this property is. 5 out of 5 stars and I will be booking this property again when I return to New Orleans!
If you are looking for a true New Orleans experience in luxury, this is the place!!. We have stayed on the first floor, second floor and carriage house of this property on different occasions. It is absolutely gorgeous and you will feel like you've gone back in time but with all of the modern conveniences of today. Upstairs is tastefully decorated with beautiful artwork and furnishings. The balcony is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a glass of fine wine, while watching all of the happenings on Royal Street. You will most likely see a parade or enjoy a wedding party celebrating in a second line parade, making their way to the reception. In fact, we are so impressed with this home, we are having our daughter's wedding here in October, in the lush courtyard with its beautiful gardens. Trust me when I say, you will not be disappointed reserving this property for your New Orleans experience. Bob and Samantha are the epitome of gracious hosts and will take care of all of your needs!!!
