About Ninh Tran

Real Estate Professional transplant from the Northeast living and working in New Orleans for the past five years. Love to travel and entertain guests. I pride myself on ensuring that my guests truly have a New Orleans experience. As a recent guest stated, "it was like staying at a good friend's beautiful house". That is why I enjoy hosting and that's exactly the sentiment I want all my guests to experience.

Ninh Tran purchased this house in 2013

Why Ninh Tran chose Esplanade Ridge

Bayou St. John is the quintessential New Orleans neighborhood. Colorful, vibrant, historical homes that run along the Bayou. Walk, bike, run, or kayak on the Bayou to City Park or down to the French Quarter. Centrally located, within 10-15 minutes to anywhere in the City. Bayou living like the locals, but be minutes from all the action. City Park, Esplanade Avenue, Krewe of Endymion Mardi Gras Parade, Parkway Bakery, Bayou Wine and Beer Garden, Pals Lounge, Bayou Boogaloo, Voodoo Music Festival, Jazzfest are all within walking distance to the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed staying with Ninh! The house and property was very comfortable and beautiful. Very well kept and maintained. After spending the day walking through the city we came back to an amazing deck to relax on, comfortable beds and a well maintained home. We look forward to visiting again and staying with Ninh!

A Wonderful Just Like Home Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was by far our best experience with VRBO/Homeaway which we use all the time when travelling. The house is exactly as shown beautiful inside and out , spacious, well decorated , well stocked with the essentials needed when renting and most of all very clean. But what made our experience a 5+ was Ninh the owner. He went above and beyond and made us feel extremely welcome in his rental home. The home is situated in a great location for exploring New Orleans everything very close. I would highly recommend a car rental and parking was not a problem just outside the house. If you are truly looking for a flawless home rental experience in New Orleans this is your spot.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated, clean and we had everything we needed at our finger tips. I have stayed in many homes and Ninh was hands downs the best host we have ever had, he was there if you needed him but totally respected our privacy. He was quick to respond to anything we needed. Can't wait to come back.

Amazing Stay in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We decided to rent a home instead of trying to deal with the hustle and bustle of a hotel. This home was amazing! It was as advertised and more. The owner was gracious enough to allow us some flexibility with checking in, as we were driving down and got into the city early! In addition, we were provided with all the essentials needed when staying somewhere! We were less than 10 minutes from the quarter and it was a really quick Uber/Lyft ride away ($8 - $10) rides. The amenities were on point with the semi-private patio, the extra towels, the soaps in the kitchen and bathrooms, the extra paper items (cups, towels, toilet paper). I've stayed in several homes before and some of not all of these items you would need to bring with you or buy when you arrive. The owner makes everything super easy and very accommodating.

If I had to pick something to say it needs upgraded, it would be the shower heads in the bathrooms. The bathrooms are very very nice, but the shower heads themselves appear to be a little older and could have more pressure for us girls to get our products out of our hair. However, it does the job decently well.

We would definitely recommend this place to others and would most definitely return on our next trip to New Orleans.

Owner's Response: Annie and I discussed during and after her stay. I truly appreciated her wonderful review and constructive feedback. Showerheads in both bathrooms have been upgraded since this review was written.

Car: not necessary

Bayou st. John is a wonderful neighborhood adjacent to the bayou, in the heart of the city. You will be less than a 10 minute drive to the French Quarter, Frenchmen street, the Marigny, the Superdome, downtown and warehouse district, and a 15 minute walk to the fairgrounds and jazz fest, City Park/voodoo fest, ostrich race, voodoo festival, seafood festival, boudin festival, new orleans museum of art, st. Louis cemetery #3, and 1 block to the endymion parade route.

Less than a mile from the house are several grocery stores: Wholefoods. Canseco's Esplanade Market, and Rouses on Carrollton. There is a huge market on Carrollton that has CVS, restaurants, bars, grocery stores. Parkway Bakery and Tavern (Best Po-boys in the City), Pal's Lounge (neighborhood bar), and Bayou Wine and Beer Garden is walking distance from the house.

For the active traveler, the Bayou and City Park are perfect locations to kayak, paddle board, run, and bike. My house is 2 blocks from the Bayou.

Local developers are going to renovate the beautiful, former school building, and convert them into high end apartments. They are starting some sporadic construction but during the normal 8-4 schedule and aren't suppose to work on weekends.
