  • Could not find a better place in New Orleans-couple

    "The wife and I went to NOLA to celebrate her 30th birthday. Carol's apartment was perfect--the location is throwing distance to the French Quarter, sandwiched between Frenchman St. and the French Quarter. Took 10 minutes to walk to all the bars on Bourbon St., and on the other side of the French Quarter is the St. Charles line for you to explore the Garden District. And on the walk back from Bourbon St. every night, there is a 24 convenience store and the perfect diner for late night eating. For breakfast, there is the perfect neighborhood breakfast place, Horns. The apartment was not big, however it had everything we needed--queen sized bed, full bathroom, fridge, microwave, and its own walkway to the back. This place was perfect. I may be back for a work conference in November, and if this apartment is not rented, I will be bumping the hotel for Carol's place!"

  • Best Place To Stay In New Orleans

    "Frankie's place is fantastic. Beyond spacious, clean and three short blocks from the French Quarter. The interior decoration is pure French Quarter (and Frankie). You will not find a better place. Frankie is a quality person. He will meet you upon your arrival, give you a tour of his place and an idea of a what to do in the French Quarter as well as the immediate neighborhood. All VRBO properties should be of this quality. Thank you, Frankie."

  • Simply put exceeded all my expectations

    "I cannot say enough wonderful things about the New Orleans Firehouse, simply put it exceeded all my expectations. We were amazed the moment my party walked in on how impressive it is. The Firehouse was able to blended modern style seamlessly within it's historic roots. All 7 bedrooms were large and comfortable, the upstairs living area offered a great place to gather and relax before or after going out, and the tall ceilings everywhere made it feel immense. It's best feature, I thought, was the downstairs living area. Which has two large fire doors that open creating an extremely unique outdoor space. My party spent hours sitting down there drinking, laughing, having fun all while enjoying the great weather and taking in the fun flavor of the neighborhood. Speaking of the Firehouse's neighborhood, I was very impressed with the Marigny-Bywater area. This was my second visit to New Orleans and the first time I've stayed outside the French Quarter. I felt this added to our trip making it more unique and less "touristy". The neighborhood is very lively and had a ton going itself. My group spent hours just a block west of the Firehouse at the Lost Love bar and lounge. A few blocks east of the Firehouse are some very eclectic restaurants and cafes, and a little south of it is a beautiful river walk, all nestled within a friendly, colorful neighborhood with tons of character. However if you're worried about staying outside the French Quarter, DON'T BE! With a mix of walking and Uber we never felt too far away from all the action. Of course a 110 year old building is going to have it's wear and tear. Some of the floorboards squeak, the stairs up to the second level are a workout to get up, the 110 year old lock on the master bathroom door did not work, and yes when raining there was some leakage. But not nearly to the extent some other reviews have suggested. The property manager Nancy, who was wonderful to work with, seemed more concerned about that than me. Any negatives of the Firehouse were only a minor inconvenience, this property is overwhelmingly impressive and a great place to stay. Everyone in my party would agree that our trip to New Orleans was better because we stayed at the Firehouse. We can claim our stay was a more unique, positive and different experience than anyone else because we chose this property. I hope I'm fortunate enough to one day stay there again."

  • Spacious upstairs apartment

    "This upstairs apartment was clean, safe and spacious. It fit 7 of us nicely and had all of the amenities that we wanted such as an iron and ironing board, plenty of linens and towels, soap, coffee maker and dishwasher. The heat and air worked well as we used the both during our stay. Ed, the owner, was pleasant and easily accessible a half a block away when needed. This property was reasonably priced and close enough to walk the 5 -7 blocks to many areas of the French Quarter. It was a $9 cab ride back to the apartment from Bourbon Street as we did not want to walk the 11 Blocks back to the apartment late at night. Would definitely recommend."
