Great Trip

We really enjoyed our trip here in Nola! The house offered everything we needed and was in a great neighborhood. About a 10min walk to the French Quarter, with great bars and restaurants. Would definitely rent again.

Great apartment and location for two couples vacationing in New Orleans. The neighborhood had all the amenities we needed....breakfast restaurant, market, bars. About a $10 cab ride to Bourbon Street so very manageable without a car. The owner was very accommodating with dropping luggage off early when we arrived so that we could return our rental car. The coffee and bottled water was appreciated.

Good location

The apartment is nice and the history of viola was interesting, we had a great stay. I had to call James because there wasn't a hair dryer and he replaced it very quickly, we did have a couple of other issues and I did let James know about and feel that he will get them fixed for next renters. The area is great with lots of places to eat or drink, there is a little cafe around the corner that served great breakfast. The French quarter is less than a mile away it was nice to be within walking distance

This was a wonderful apartment. Central air, all amenities described. Owner provided coffee and water which was really appreciated. Some really excellent restaurants within walking distance. Street parking only and we were able to park close. The neighborhood is safe with a lot of hipsters. Internet was excellent. We enjoyed our stay.

Convenient location

  • 4 of 5
Interesting eclectic neighborhood, but safe and parking available right outside the unit on the street. I wouldn't call this duplex "elegant", but it was adequate. It was well equipped with most things we needed. The owner, James was helpful and accessible.

We were able to walk to the French quarter from here. We used the navigation on our smart phones to help us find places.

There is a small market just a few blocks away that carries not only groceries but some take-away deli dishes as well. We walked a block away and had dinner at the newly-renamed "Silk Road". It was so good, we ate there two of our four nights.

Only complaint is that the floors and carpets in the duplex were dirty and dusty and the bathroom mat was sticky.

I would recommend this unit.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the bath mat the cleaning staff did not notice a previous guest had spilled something on it. It has since been replaced. The floors are new and oak so as much as we vacuum we are still going to have some sawdust come up through the cracks. The rugs in the master and living room were Miss Veidts so there really not dirty just old..
Glad you enjoyed your stay very sorry about the sawdust we are hoping it all about gone now.
