Better than the pics.. great place

  • 4 of 5

We were moved here after our original rental didnt work out. So, it was one half bathroom less than we had originally wanted. However, the location was wonderful. So, central to everything. We barely used our cars but really didnt have to. The site itself was nicer than the pictures and great part of town.

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

It really was cool staying here. It was like living here. From talking to the neighbors (and their little dogs too) . . . to getting to know the UPS guys (as they dropped off multiple packages) . . . to taking out the trash for pickup on Mondays & Thursday . . .

I'd never stayed upriver of Esplanade before so I was a little anxious. I rode the streetcar like a local. Ran the streetcar line. I was ALL OVER the Garden District, Magazine St., Uptown, Carrollton, etc. The location's great. From here you can get almost anywhere in 15 minutes (or less). Some friends (one's in real estate) who are natives stopped by and commented on how beautiful the house was. They said their house wasn't this nice (and they live just down the block).

Thanks again. This really was neat. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat (as you can tell).

Charming, Comfortable, and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and will give you an authentic experience of an old New Orleans home with all its elegant architectural details: high ceilings, French doors, and a wrought iron balcony. The ceiling fans, a/c, and high ceilings keep the rooms cool. The kitchen is very well-stocked with all the utensils you could possibly need to cook for yourself. The laundry is accessed easily from the second story, and should you need it, there is ample closet space shared by the two bedrooms. This part of the Garden District is convenient: I caught the streetcar easily for short-rides to the Quarter and to Uptown but almost did not need to for all there was to see in the Garden District and along Magazine Street (to which I was able to walk). I would definitely stay here again!!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this rental for eight nights and we really enjoyed our trip to New Orleans. The place was very well kept and clean. It had all that we needed for our stay. Having access to a washer and dryer really helped out as well. I brought two small children and having a crib and toddler bed to use made it very comfortable. It was very convenient to hop on the trolley for sight seeing. We will definitely use this rental again when we visit in the future!
