Group of Friends for Mardi Gras

  • 5 of 5
We travelled to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, and were delighted with how this house worked out. It is way nicer than the pictures show! We were all really impressed with the high ceilings, the colours and the interior decor. About a 20 minute walk to the French Quarter, but lots to see along the way, and it wasn't a sketchy neighbourhood to pass through. There are also tons of great restaurants right around - highly recommend Bacchanal Wine, and the Joint BBQ - all a few blocks away. And it was nice to get off of Bourbon when you were done with the partying...
We would definitely go back!

Family of Eight Vacations in New Orleans' Bywater Elegance

Family of Eight Vacations in New Orleans' Bywater Elegance
  • 5 of 5
Family traveled to New Orleans for the first time. Family traveled as a Grown Up Family Unit for the first time. Bywater Elegance was perfect for everyone. Bedrooms were secluded enough so no one family bothered another either coming in late at night or getting up with a 10 month old. Hot water held out magnificently. Beds were comfy. Kitchen large enough for people to cook on one side and others eat at the spacious kitchen. Had all amenities in the kitchen. Washer and dryer cut down on amount of luggage. Living room held us all as we watched the Patriot's play off game. Taxi back from French Quarter was $9-$12 depending on which end of the street you came from. Four family members rented bikes and said that was they way to see the city.

Destination Wedding Getaway!

  • 4 of 5
We rented this house for our extended family to stay in for our New Orleans wedding. It was unseasonably cold the first few days and the owners did a wonderful job accommodating the whole crew by supplying space heaters, extra blankets and logs for the fire! In the end everyone who stayed at the house loved having all the extra space, the full kitchen and lovely backyard space.
There was so much room that no one felt like they were on-top of one another and we hosted a couple of dinners at the house with extended family with no issues.
The house is located in the Bywater. Our parents in particular enjoyed being away from the French Quarter craziness. We had 1 car and it was not difficult to find a parking spot on the street near the house. This house is an easy cab ride to the quarter or a leisurely walk if you're in the mood.
Really a great rental!

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.
