  • Fantastic Rental!

    "My family and I recently stayed at this vacation rental, what a great location! It was easy booking and the person who booked us was fantastic. Once I was given the information for the house, I contacted the property manager. He called me back within a few hours to explain the check-in process and describe the house. This place is huge! My husband and I brought our 3 kids (all under 8) down for 3 weeks. I had read all the reviews and almost all of them were great so I was hopeful the house would live up to the previous reviews. And it did! The place was clean and well set up. The beds were all new, the kitchen was spotless and bathrooms were well stocked. The fridge did not have creamer or snacks (as per a recent reviewer who complained the owners did provide food) but as per my experience, places do not usually have food. This is something you bring on your own. There are several stores nearby plus a local co-op that has everything! The internet worked great, and this was important since both of us were working while here. The internet worked great but was spotty at times in the back bedroom. This wasn’t a huge issue since connection in the kitchen/dining room and upstairs was really fast. The kids all stayed upstairs on the futon and in the second bedroom. The adjacent bath was great; a bit older but worked quite well. Plenty of towels, blankets and sheets to go around! The stairs seem to be original but our 3-year-old managed like a pro! The living room was quite clean, tidy and smelled freshly laundered. The neighborhood is quite eccentric with a cooking school on the corner and stables across the street. I read a few reviews that said the stables were undesirable but in my opinion, they keep the street safer. They always had lights on with activity on the stable grounds all throughout the night! There are several awesome restaurants all within walking distance (Praline Connection, Horn’s, Buffa’s, for example). It took my kids about 10 minutes to walk to the French quarter (roughly 3-4 blocks depending on your direction). There is a new kid/dog park as soon as you walk into the FQ, it provided hours of fun!! Live music at the Spotted Cat was worth the 5-minute walk! All in all, we had a wonderful trip and cannot wait to do this again next year! Things to remember, New Orleans is funky, old and unique. Nothing is cookie-cutter which is what makes it great! Things may be a bit different but enjoy it!"

  • Fantastic cottage!

    "I went with three people who had never been to New Orleans. The cottage was wonderful and the patio was great for having a drink and listening to the music from Frenchmen street. Great location with easy access to the French Quarter and to the streetcar. The owners were wonderful to work with! I would so use this house again."

  • How to make a business trip an excellent vacation

    "I had a business conference in New Orleans in late October and was accompanied by my Board Chair (Big Boss), his wife, my wife and our two havanese furbabies. After I looked at hotel prices and added parking, taxes, extra for pets, and overall hassle, the two Marigny houses (this one and the smaller in the back) hit the spot. Not only were they cheaper, all in, than the Conference Hotel, we got a ton of room, the dogs were most happy with their little compound, the houses were in great condition, well furnished, quiet, and greatly convenient to Frenchman St, the Quarter, tons of restaurants and music. My wife and I (and furbabies) took the smaller back house as the bedroom and bath were upstairs and my board chair's wife has had hip surgery and was uncertain about climbing stairs. The front house (#371457) was awesome, all kinds of space, grand kitchen built around the original wood cookstove chimney, Boss's wife spent the first two days of our stay taking pictures with her phone and sending them to her friends and family bragging about "their place in New Orleans". They really did enjoy themselves. Neither couple had any problems at all. In fact, the Krewe of Boo had their halloween parade the evening we all arrived and I had my Chair convinced that I had organized a parade in honor of his visit (until he saw the parade participants and I had to admit to exaggerating "just a little"). Wife and I have traveled using VRBO and Flipkey for almost 25 years and have always been most satisfied. This was the first time we took advantage of private rental for a work trip and I learned something....THIS IS THE WAY TO DO IT. Wife wasn't stuck in a little hotel room while I was at meetings....the puppies were happy with their own yard...the place was private and quiet and still close to the music and food that makes New Orleans...New Orleans. There were a number of people at my conference who I showed photos of the property to and they were all quite jealous. Nuff said....if you have a need to be in New Orleans...this is the place to stay. I just sent off to reserve this house for Jazz Fest next year....that's how much we liked it."
