Even better than expected
Really nice place close to many shops / restaurants on St. Charles. Missy was an excellent host! The dishwasher broke, and she took care of it within a day - very impressive.
Thank you for being our guests and such wonderful guests at that! We are so glad you had a good visit and hope you will stay with us again next time you visit New Orleans!
Nice, roomy place, and a great location!
Stayed here with my family for a little vacation and wedding in New Orleans. The apartment is a block away from St. Charles street and the historic streetcars that run there. Tons of restaurants and bars within walking distance, and the streetcar can get you just about any where as well (Only 10-15 minute ride to the French Quarter). Missy was also really helpful, letting us check-in early and telling me a great spot for fresh coffee and beignets with no wait! I don't know when I'll get back to the Big Easy but when I do I'll look this spot up again!
So glad y'all had a nice visit and we appreciate he great review! We hope you will come back and stay with us again! It's hard to stay away from New Orleans! The beignets will be waiting for your return! 😀
Beautiful & cozy
This place is amazing! Not only is it beautiful but very comfortable. The beds - oh my goodness!! I slept in the master suite downstairs and the bed just wrapped itself around me. The location is great - St. Charles Ave is one street over with plenty of restaurants & bars, plus the trolley stop. The hosts were great and responded quickly to everything we asked. They definitely put a lot of thought into making the property cozy and feel like home. The penthouse is on the 3rd floor so if you can climb stairs easily, I definitely recommend staying in the penthouse. If not, try one of the apartments below. They're owned by the same hosts so I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Would absolutely stay here the next time I'm in New Orleans!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for the beautiful review! We appreciate it and hope you come back to stay with us again soon!!!
BEAUTIFUL place we had everything we need!
Easy central location to French Quarter.
This building is absolutely stunning! We had a large group (14) of friends staying in the first floor apartment and penthouse over New Years Eve weekend (5 nights). There were 5 couples and 4 singles and this was the perfect place for us to stay. We loved the beds, they were so comfortable. Even with all those people we never felt like we were cramped.
The location was great. We were surprised by how much there was in the area to do and we were there over a day before we made it to Bourbon St. We were able to watch our home team (Ravens) play at the Blind Pelican a couple blocks away. There was a liquor store and Walgreens in walking distance where we were able to pick up a few things to stock the house. We did use the trolly, also super convenient from the house.
The only small complaint we had were there were only mirrors in the bathrooms of the penthouse. When all the girls were getting ready, it was little crowded in the bathrooms. A full length mirror or extra mirror in a bedroom would have been helpful. However, that trivial detail was the only downside to these amazing apartments.
We can't thank Missy enough for her quick responses and letting us stay in her gorgeous home. I can definitely say if we go back to New Orleans we already know where we will be staying.
We are so glad you had a great vacation! And thank you so much for the suggestion of extra mirrors! That is an easy fix and we will add this week! Thank you for taking the time to suggest and for your lovely review! We look forward to you all coming back and staying with us next time you come to New Orleans! Happy new year!!
Gorgeous townhouse, great location!
I spent a long weekend in New Orleans before the Thanksgiving holiday, and it was fantastic. The penthouse is beautifully remodeled and had plenty of room for our group of three adults and two small children. Being only one block off St Charles is very convenient, we took the street car several times to the French Quarter and Warehouse districts. The only caveat with this property is that there are a LOT of stairs to get to the penthouse, which could be a problem if you have bad knees or limited mobility. The only other thing the property is missing is a kitchen table, but with so many great restaurants around it wasn't a problem for our group. Missy was VERY responsive and helpful - she made sure we had a fantastic experience. We look forward to visiting again soon!
