About David Lewis

The owner has lived in just about every New Orleans neighborhood and ultimately chose to live in this area because it was his favorite part of town.

David Lewis purchased this townhome in 2006

Why David Lewis chose Central City/Garden District

The layout of the property provides great common areas for a group gathering such as the living room kitchen areas, a spacious 420 square foot deck, and a covered outdoor space that is great for hosting a crawfish boil. The number of bedrooms and individual beds make it a great place for gatherings with friends and/or family.

Great rental for our big family. Location is perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This rental was great for our recent trip to New Orleans during Mardi Gras. The house is spacious for our big family and it had everything we needed. The location made it easy to get to and from the parades without having to wait in traffic. The neighborhood is located in a very safe area. The owner was wonderful and was quick to respond to any questions we had.

The Good, Bad, and Ugly

  • 1 of 5

The Good:

Nice location for all kinds of events in New Orleans. Decent neighborhood. Didn't feel unsafe walking after dark.

The Bad:

Beware what you are renting. This is not a house. Rather it is two town homes that are connected. They are very small. Bedrooms have two or three beds, very little closet (storage) space. Upstairs has slanted ceilings. An adult can't stand in the upstairs bathroom, or either of the bedrooms without hitting your head, or having to constantly lean over to get in and out of bed, or use the bathroom.

Bedrooms are similar in size to a college dorm room, with multiple beds.

We searched and rented a 5-bedroom house but ended up with a 3-bedroom that had multiple beds crammed in them. Know up front what you are getting.

Very outdated. Exposed wires. No cover on one wall thermostat. The other was so old that one couldn't read the controls. Almost impossible to set temperature. Not good in dead of winter or summer.

The party deck must be shared with neighbors.

The Ugly

Very dirty. Very obvious the place had not been cleaned. We have submitted pictures to VRBO, and we would add them here if the site would allow pics to be uploaded.

Floors were filthy; microwave had food particles as did the oven. Bathrooms had crud at the baseboards. Stains on the carpet in couple of places. Nobody in our group dared go without shoes inside the unit.

Upon arrival we went to the Walmart around the corner and purchased some cleaning supplies, and cleaned enough on the counters that we could make it bearable. We have pictures of the residue on the chlorox wipes.

Both bathrooms have issues. The bottom floor bathroom toilet is not sealed at the floor. The unit is in danger of falling over at any moment. It could not be used. Because the wax seal is missing, there is a constant presence of sewer smell. Faint, but there. Again, pics have been sent to VRBO

The upstairs bathroom has a broken seat. Care must be taken to use.

In all, if you are looking for a spring break-type place and don't care about ammenities or cleanliness, then this could be for you. I wouldn't take a family there. Again - beware what you are renting, this is NOT a 5-bedroom house. We have rented multiple VRBO properties for several years running. This is by FAR the worst situation we have ever experienced.

Great location, clean, and a wonderful host. David was very nice and friendly. As with most places, this is in a residential area, so don't expect to get loud. Walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants on Magazine St. and a short uber/taxi to the French Quarter and other parts of town. I would definitely come here again.

Great spot for a group in a really cool location

  • 5 of 5

We had a big group of friends stay here and had a ton of fun exploring the Garden District. Great food and bars are just around the corner on Magazine and you're either a nice walk or a quick cab ride from downtown. David was super helpful and had a ton of recommendations for cool things to do. If you want to have fun in New Orleans and see a little bit more than just Bourbon Street I highly recommend this place. It's a neighborhood spot, though, so don't annoy the neighbors!

Lots of Space and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group staying for a long weekend and this property was great for us. There was plenty of comfortable beds and bathroom space to accommodate our entire group (~15), and we really enjoyed being able to hang out on the large deck. The location was great, as it is way less crowded and crazy than the Quarter, but still just a short cab or Uber ride away from all the big name places you want to see. The neighborhood felt safe and walk-able and we enjoyed that there are great bars and restaurants in walking distance. Additionally, we found it convenient that their is a Walmart nearby to get snacks and beverages for the house. I would definitely stay here again!
