Fantastic base for a fun weekend in the Big Easy

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had an amazing time at the Mambo House for my bachelorette party!! The location was great, and the house itself was so much fun-- it definitely set the tone for our wild weekend! Ron was easy to communicate with, and was flexible with our check-in/ check-out times. Also, when my flight was canceled, Ron let me book another night at the house, which turned an inconvenient situation into a relaxing extra day of vacation! I would recommend the Mambo House for any group looking for a safe and comfortable base during a fun weekend in New Orleans.

We came up to experience Mardi Gras and celebrate! The Mambo house was in a great location, local eats and bars down on magazine St, and a walk away from St. Charles. We used Uber and Lyft to get down to the quarter, just 15 mins away. Ron and team were super amazing at responding and we're amazing host we had a King Cake and beer waiting for us. I Highly recommend this to anyone looking at this comment.

We just returned from Mambo House and had a great time. We were planning this trip from Philadelphia and California for a group of 8-12 people, and the price and communication with Ron made it easy to keep our head count flexible.

The house is on a safe and quiet block, walking distance from great small batch morning donuts and coffee, St. Charles parade route, and Magazine street shops and restaurants. We felt very safe walking. The showers had plenty of hot water and good pressure, and the kitchen was well-stocked. Ron and Bria were quick and easy to communicate with, and they even helped me coordinate getting tools and a ladder so I could build a Parade Ladder for our kids when we got there!

Also Mambo House has an off-street parking spot right by the front door. (we rented a mini-van so we could drive down to Barataria Preserve, which was also great, a nice break from the city).

Mambo House has a couple supply closets with plenty of extra blankets, towels and pillows (as well as birthday candles, decorations, paper goods, christmas lights, etc).

In classic Nola style, the rooms are a little awkward--the most private room in the house in is the back with 2 full beds and a bathroom, the other two bedrooms can be a little noisier, one is in the main living room with a full bed and closet behind an accordion door type enclosure, and the other has a twin day-bed with a twin roll out trundle in a room that one must walk through to get to the sitting room and back bedroom. The back bedroom is so big we brought the extra twin mattress from the trundle in there, and designated the backroom as the quiet room.

Mambo House is great for a group and an easy price to manage/split. I hope this review helps!

Happy planning!

The Mambo House is the BEST! We all loved it so much. It's big, spacious and full of NOLA flavor. It's also centrally located and in a great local neighborhood. Ron and Bria had some great recommendations for food, bars and coffee all walking distance to the house. We will be back for our next trip!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us! Ron and Bria were very attentive and provided everything we needed before and during our stay. It is rare to find a house that actually has a good location and can sleep that many people, but the Mambo House definitely does that. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend the house!
