Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family spent a long weekend in New Orleans and were very pleased with the house. It was exactly as described. Eric was a very thoughtful and responsive host. He had the home warm and ready for arrival on a cold night and filled us in on the nearby restaurants. Whenever we had a question, he was quick to respond and when we forgot a valuable camera, he returned it in the mail to us as quickly as possible. He has our highest recommendation.

The perfect house for our NOLA graduation celebration!

  • 5 of 5

When we began planning for our son Alex's graduation from Tulane Law School we decided that to enable our extended family to be together and to be able to enjoy all that NOLA has to offer, we needed to rent a house. Having used Airbnb for a wonderful Oregon Coast vacation last summer, we explored it first, but nothing seemed like exactly what we needed, so we discovered VRBO and Eric's house came to our attention. We are so happy that it did. Located less than 5 minutes from our son's residence near Tulane, the house was perfectly located for us. Besides my wife and I, our son and daughter-in-law from Seattle, our daughter and her partner from Philadelphia, my sister-in-law from Connecticut and a family friend from Hattiesburg, Mississippi spent a glorious week at Pritchard Place. The house was roomy and homey - loved the dark colors and big comfortable furnishings. The picture to the left here really captures the feel of the house. The pool was wonderful and enjoyed every day by all. We had a gathering of other family friends who were in NOLA for the graduation with a barbecue poolside that was a beautiful evening of socializing. Parking was ample street side for our guests in addition to the three cars we had for those staying at the house. Eric was wonderful, very responsive when we had any issues, going above and beyond to ensure a successful stay. Finally we enjoyed the daily visits from the beautiful neighborhood roving peacock Archie - a unique experience. My whole family would highly recommend this house for a wonderful New Orleans experience.

Very Good

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, It was affordable and comfortable. However, I do have some suggestions.

1. The furniture in the living room is badly in need of replacing. The sofa, loveseat and chair are very dirty and the cushions are worn.

2. The bedding is also in need of replacing

3. It would have been nice of the pool had been cleaned before our arrival. we could not use the pool because of all of the dirty in the bottom of it.

4. Some of t he planks on planks on the deck are loose and broken. It is a fall hazard.

Owner's Response: So sorry everything wasn't perfect, as I strive for total guest satisfaction every stay! Especially sorry to read this now, after confirming moments after arrival everything was great and spending a wonderful 15 minutes talking outside on departure morning..I certainly would have made all efforts to correct anything not up to par upon arrival or during your stay.. Will ensure all your recommendations are addressed and thank you again for visiting our home and Nola..!

Fabulous stay. Eric is an amazing host. Great location. Great space.

  • 5 of 5

You have a 10 minute walk to the trolly line and then a 45 minute trolly ride into the French quarter drop off is at Canal Street. The trolly takes you right through the Garden District on Saint Charles it's a wonderful ride. House has everything you need for bedrooms big dining room big living room great kitchen grocery store close by Costco five minute taxi ride up the road. This is our second time at this house first time was with friends this time I brought my children husbands and grandchildren. Spent a lot of time the first time around shopping comparing but Eric was wonderful so the second time around the kids wanted to be a little bit closer to town but we came back to Eric's house because it is hospitality.

We will be back again and hopefully Eric is still in the home rental biz.

Thank you for a wonderful stay again and for anyone looking look no farther.

Family reunion for Thanksgiving; plenty of room, pool was great, clean, well supplied.

  • 5 of 5

Great house for a family, ages, 2 yr's old to 70, eight of us. The two story house had plenty of room to great away from each other if need be. The pool and deck was really fun, and the front porch was great for people watching and having your morning coffee. Kitchen was well stocked for cooking huge meals, and the dining room was very impressive. Everything worked, never needed to call Eric for anything. Eric met us on first day, very friendly and proved need information. Having made many trips to New Orleans, we really like this uptown area, FREE PARKING, short distance to food stores, and you can walk to the Trolley which will take you downtown. Well return. L.

Great house with a very accommodating owner

  • 5 of 5

We came to NOLA in the summertime knowing that we needed a safe location that was not too far from the action and a pool to cool off in! The house fit all those needs and then some, and we would stay there again in the future. The owner was very easy to communicate with, and was very friendly and easy going.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Lots of character and charm and very comfortable. Everything was clean and there was even cleaning supplies, spices, etc. - a very nice touch. The neighborhood is quiet and felt safe for my family. Our daughter LOVED the pool and we used it each day we stayed. I is also in a great location - everything you want to do is either a 15 minute drive or Uber away. The house is only a few blocks from the trolley as well

Eric was a fantastic host. Not only did he have the house in great condition and ready for us EARLY, but he provided lots of suggestions for things to do while we were there, even providing is cell number to be "on call" when we needed suggestions. We took advantage of this and were thrilled with the suggestions for both food and attractions. Safe to say that Eric's involvement made the house even more attractive once we arrived.

I would certainly try to rent the house again on our NEXT trip to New Orleans and suggest it to my friends...
