Great place! Wonderful history! Great location!
Everything was wonderful! Property manager is awesome! Neighbors are awesome! Location was great! You can't go wrong with this place!
I absolutely loved staying at this beautiful, beautiful house! I want to stay here every single time I come back to New Orleans. It's stunning, yet completely cozy. Super comfortable beds (with quality linens!), spacious bathrooms, and it was nice to have all the different rooms/extra space for my family. The decorating and finishes are to the nines. BONUS - there are so many TVs! One in the main living room, one in the master AND guest, and one in the master bathroom! I had the privilege of meeting the owner (Sherri) and property manager (Tommy) and both were extremely welcoming, accommodating, and kind; southern hospitality at its finest! I HIGHLY recommend this place. I was sad to leave!
Too good to be true!
We enjoyed having such a homey place to relax in the French quarter! We were so close to all our favorite locations and an Uber was only minutes away if needed! We loved the luxurious bathrooms and living spaces. Very clean and comfortable. We couldn’t believe our luck to find such a gem only 2 blocks from the French quarter!
This really is the most perfect place to stay for so many reasons. The house is absolutely beautiful, it's been sympathetically restored but has all the comforts of modern life and interesting unique artwork. Great kitchen, bathrooms, super comfortable beds, plentiful fluffy towels, everywhere was spotlessly clean, good outside space and incredibly quiet, it was difficult to believe we were a few minutes walk from Frenchman Street with all the fabulous music. It also is less than a leisurely 10 minute walk to the French market so we couldn't have been happier with the location. What made this so special for all of us was how helpful Joe and Tommy were, the loan of fishing gear, supply of fishing bait, restaurant recommendations, Joe even drove us to The House of Blues as it was a hot day to walk. If we return to New Orleans (would love to) we wouldn't look at anywhere else to stay. Only worry is if too many people realise how fabulous this is we may have trouble getting in.
This is the quintessential home to stay in during your stay in New Orleans.
Perfect location. Beautiful home. Fabulous owners. This will be our go to place to stay while in New Orleans.
This was our first trip to New Orleans. Our family of 5 enjoyed The Captain's House immensely. It is beautifully furnished with everything you need in a vacation house. We especially enjoyed the large living room that allowed us to gather each morning and evening to plan/recap our day. The house location is fantastic. We walked everywhere - the French Quarter, Frenchman Street, the French Market. Other spots a little further out were accessed by Uber rides. Allie was the perfect host, meeting us for check in and very laid back about having us occupy this awesome property. We would definitely stay at this home again as 4 days was not enough time to enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer. Thank you Allie and The Captain for refurbishing this lovely Creole cottage for others to enjoy.
Within easy walking distance of dozens of restaurants, bars, live music and history. A magnificent home, built in 1740, one of the 'Lost Creole Cottages' of New Orleans. Completely renovated and restored to it's original beauty. A spectacular location and a magical property.
This property complies with all city ordinances related to rental properties in the city of New Orleans. This property is often used for Wounded Warriors and returning veterans and their families as a refuge to visit the city of New Orleans as a gift from our family and company on a case by case basis. These Veterans or Active Duty Service members may often stay as our guests as a "thank you" for their service and a respite for their care givers. It is a special property with a special purpose.
