55+ y/o sibling Birthday gathering

  • 5 of 5
Bywater Elegance was an amazing home for my brother's Bday celebration. We were a family of (7) 55+ year olds who are young at heart. We enjoy eating, music , art and activity. We found it all!
The home itself is so spacious and colorful and clean. It met our sleeping needs with room to spare...we could easily have had 2-3 more people, if you don't mind sharing the (3) spacious bathrooms. The living and kitchen areas were also spacious. It was a bit chilly when we were there in December so we did not use the pretty backyard patio area, however it was very inviting.
We had a very prompt response when we had discovered the DVD player was missing and we had a Bday slideshow presentation...we had a new DVD player in place within 24 hours!
The location of the house offers the option of walking... recommend only daylight walking according to the locals, however. We ventured out on foot a night or 2 as a group and felt fairly comfortable but had one interesting encounter....
There are local restaurants which are very good. Shake Sugary Bakery, at the end of our street, and Elizabeth's, around the corner, were both delicious...we had breakfast. We walked to another restaurant/ bar for dinner that was also good...sorry I have forgotten its name.
You can walk, if you're a bit more industrious, the easy, flat 2 mile walk to the French Quarter. You may wish to catch a cab back if you're returning at night. Cabs were easy to find and were reliable for us when we needed early morning transport to the airport.
On our less industrious days we drove the 2 miles and parked on the fringe of the quarter where there is free and available street parking.
Crescent Park is a really nice bike/ walking path along the Mississippi that is just a block away.
Again, we were very happy with The Bywater Elegance and do recommend it highly.

Girl's weekend away

Girl's weekend away
  • 5 of 5
Loved our time in New Orleans and this house was part of the treasured memories we have. We usually walked to the French quarter and then took a cab home. It was close and convenient to all the things we wanted to do.

We were a large group of ladies gathering for a weekend away and it was a charm. I highly recommend, the space was lovely for this type of get away / holiday.

New Years Eve NOLA Style

  • 5 of 5
The stay at the Bywater Elegance house was amazing. The Bywater neighborhood is very charming, and has great flair and creole style. The house had plenty of space to hang and lounge, and even though it was a little chilly a beautiful patio. The beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms are the perfect size. You couldn't ask for a better location with just a short walk to the French Quarter and Frenchman Street. Be sure to check out Elizabeth's, Bacchanal, and The Joint which are all walking distance from this house.

Wonderful Christmas in Bywater

  • 5 of 5
This is a fun, funky house in a fun, funky neighborhood. It has high ceilings and beautiful wood floors and feels like New Orleans and nowhere else. The kitchen is well-appointed and worked well for snacking and making meals. We had a family group of 8 people and enjoyed the big kitchen/dining and living area for games and hanging-out. The 4 main bedrooms are all comfortable and the 5th bedroom (which is semi-private) works for kids and teens. The Bywater neighborhood has lots of local restaurants--we enjoyed Booty's, which has small plates and great service--and coffeeshops, and it's close enough to the Quarter and Frenchmen St to go and have a good time (you can walk, but it's easier to drive part way and then walk) but not feel that you're living in a tourist zone. The owner was very responsive when we asked to get in a few hours early. Would help to have some brighter lighting in the living room but would definitely recommend for your New Orleans visit.

Thanksgiving in NOLA

  • 5 of 5
We loved the house and the neighborhood ( we have stayed and the Bywater before and chose this property based partly on location). We brought our 3 kids and sister-in-law together for Thanksgiving in New Orleans and there was plenty of space for us all. Great little backyard where we sipped daiquiris from Gene's on the last morning we were there. Great location where we could walk to Elizabeth's and several other restaurants and Crescent Park. Good neighborhood to run in, too! Would definitely return.

My wife and I along with our adult children

  • 5 of 5
The six of us enjoyed our stay at the Marigny-Bywater house. It was great staying in such a historical home; I particularly loved the wood floors. The location was very good as we were about 2 miles from the French Quarter and less than 5 miles from the main park where we enjoyed the New Orleans Seafood Festival. Taxi service was very accomodating and I would recommend this historical home as a place to stay for anyone visiting New Orleans.
