Great place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with a 13 year old and a 16 year old. We felt very safe in this location. We did not walk to the quarter but drove a few blocks and parked. Good coffee shop and restaurants nearby. Short drive to large groceries. The house was very comfortable with a nice yard for grilling and sitting. Wifi was not great - if you are depending on it. Otherwise, put the devices away and enjoy your surroundings! Mya was great to work with. I would stay here gain! (Sorry for the delay in reviewing. I did it on the way back to STL but I guess it didn't post.)

French Quarter Jazz Festival 2014

  • 5 of 5
We were four women driving from Houston to the Jazz Festival for three days and
did not want to stay in a hotel. I looked on VRBO and found this property. It looked
great and the price was right! Contacted the owner who was extremely helpful. When we arrived we parked the car in the carport and never drove it until we left to go home.
We caught the bus at the corner two houses down and rode to the Festival for a dollar.
The neighborhood was wonderful and had excellent restaurants within walking distance.
Furniture was very pretty and comfortable. We had coffee every morning in the private
backyard. I would definitely and have recommended this rental to friends and am looking
forward to staying there again! It's charm was so New Orleans! Perfect place to stay!!

Amazing...if you don't have allergies

Amazing...if you don't have allergies
  • 4 of 5
Stayed with family of 6. Great location next to coffee shop and great restaurants. House is done beautifully... Totally my style. LOVE IT nd love the owners. However, having allergy induced asthma- I would never be able to stay again. It was VERY dusty. Long dust pieces fell from ceiling fans when we turned them on. One of my kids and I had to stay on Allegra due to dust allergies. I recommend you do not give up on this place. Owners so great.

New Orleans Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I (and our 2 little Schips) stayed here for a couple of nights in the midst of a long road trip from Austin to New Orleans. The home is fabulous--very tastefully decorated, very clean and comfortable, and very well outfitted. The owner has anticipated your every need, and the kitchen, in particular, was very well supplied. The home is located in a quiet, charming neighborhood, and is the perfect place to come home to after a busy day or evening in New Orleans.
The communication with the owner was thorough and reliable. We highly recommend this as a place to stay in lovely New Orleans!
