Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was very comfortable and we had a great vacation stay. It had the true "New Orleans" feel with its decor, patio and brick walls. The location was safe, convenient and always had parking. We were in walking distance of restaurants, a park and bars. We would definitely stay there again and the owners were always available for any questions or concerns. What more can you ask?

Better than we could have hoped for

  • 4 of 5

This place is awesome. We took our 16 and 12 year olds to NOLA for spring break and even they were impressed! Close to the WW2 museum - which is a must - and an easy drive to the French Qtr and an easy walk or drive to the shops of Magazine Street. The apt is clean and more spacious than the online pics look. The neighborhood is filled with locals walking and running with their dogs - wish we had brought ours - felt extremely safe. Jules and her husband were responsive and helpful and overly gracious hosts. We will stay here again when we return! Thanks Jules!

FYI the only reason we rated this place a 4 star is because it is not beach front! Seriously, you should stay here...

The location was as represented, the house Interior lacked many basics and was in pretty bad shape. the inside washer and dryer did not work the living room TV didn't work, no bath soap, no Kleenexes', no warm blankets, every day amnesties were lacking...the second bath floor was always wet and handicap faculities or safe guards was not accessible..perhaps this is a work in progress .

Owner's Response: Vive la différence! If we had only met this traveler prior to her arriving and understood her clear necessity for handicapped accessible housing- we would have recommended a full service commercial hotel with an elevator, valet, and curb-less showers with rails and fall guards. We are always very quick to respond to any of our guests questions or needs and try our very best to accommodate special requests whenever we can. I'm sorry we were not able to fully satisfy this guest in every way that she needed. We are a fully restored 1855 Townhouse tastefully decorated with good antiques and comfortable furniture EXACTLY LIKE THE PHOTOS. It is NOT however, a Best Western, Holiday Inn or retirement home which seems to be more the standard for a person who needs to be provided "kleenexes", "warm?" blankets or "handicap facility safeguards". Regarding our guests "complaints": The washer and dryer are basic models, with simple well labeled knobs, and each television has a single simple remote control. (Unfortunately our guest was not able to grasp the usage of either, even after two demonstrations) Every bed (of course) has blankets and there are additional ones in the French armoire and linen closet. The second bath "floor" is wet because IT IS A SHOWER. We do not provide toiletries but do provide soap. Regarding accessibility, the apartment is a single level, however, there are three steps up from the sidewalk to the front door and as such, unfortunately, this apartment is not wheelchair accessible. (nor do we advertise that we are) We wish this guest many more happy vacations, and recommend that in the future, she consider a hotel where she might receive the more personal service she requires while away from her home.

Hidden gem on Magazine Street!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! It was close enough to walk to several breakfast and lunch spots while also being a quick and inexpensive Uber ride to dinner and entertainment. Quiet neighborhood at night also made it perfect to get some much needed rest, unlike some of the uptown hotels. The owner was super responsive and attentive to our questions and needs. We will be back!

Such a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a conference in the business district. Our experience here was awesome, and while I will give a few head's up, we would gladly stay here again.

1. We came with small dogs, and they had a great outdoor patio and feets away park for that. Great for us and our pugs.

2. This place is wonderfully old school. Classic New Oreleans.

3. But not old. Super open kitchen, nice appliances, furniture.

4. The space is large. Almost like two spaces, a full front and back, besides a large patio outside.

5. Neighborhood is quiet and easy, with so easy and available right in front of the property. Was so not expecting that. We parked for free feet from the home. So easy.

6. Magazine Streetvis great too. As you walk to west, you get tons of great restaurants and shops. Maybe starting a quarter of a mile away, and walking further west, it just gets better. Where you stay is quiet with easy parking, where we food from was close. Perfect.

7. Our conference was in the downtown financial district where we couldn't have our pugs. I cannot imagine a better arrangement for families like us. Not cheap, but compared to the cost of the Hilton with pet fees, a bargain.

Such a nice place on its own. And so much better for us. I highly recommend this. We hope to get back, and stay exactly here.

Had to cancel, but very positive experience

  • 5 of 5

We were really looking forward to staying in this apartment in July 2017, but our trip got cancelled. Jules was always so helpful with answering questions and very prompt with her responses. Hope to go there another time.

Wonderful Location in Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

Fashionable remodel on great address. This apartment is right in the middle of everything but tucked away to be quiet. The two unique bathrooms sold the rental for us. Julie was very responsive when there was a slight problem. She also gave great tips for cafes, etc. Great breakfast within a 2 blocks, ice cream only a half a block and a great massage across the street. Wonderful place to visit in three directions.

It made our trip to New Orleans one to remember. I would tell all of my friends to book with Julie.
