As Advertised: Great House, Great Location, Kid Friendly

  • 5 of 5
The home is absolutely beautiful, clean, spacious and kid-friendly. The listing is accurate with respect to amenities and location. I visited New Orleans with my family initially for a few days and decided to extend our stay because we were enjoying ourselves so much.

Every morning we enjoyed our coffee on the front porch while the kids played. The owner lent us toys for the kids, there was a large open space on the ground floor where the kids could play and have fun even despite the heat of midday. Plenty of space for a vacationing family with the main living / 3BR upstairs (1 King, 2 Queen beds) and a downstairs den + bedroom with 3 twins for the kids.

The location is roughly 1.5 blocks from Audobon park and a block from Magazine- we walked to the park with three small children (6, 4, & 2) in July 4th weekend, even in heat of summer and walked the neighborhood in the late evening. Close to many, many amazing, hip uptown restaurants, walking distance to Patois or Clancy's. Short drive to many, many others. Close to Whole Foods. Lots to do with Kids in New Orleans and the location is very close to many of those attractions. Audobon Zoo which is one of America's loveliest Zoos and it also has a Cool Zoo splash park which the kids really enjoyed. Also close to the Fly - a hidden gem of a park inside the levee overlooking the water. When its cooler, great place for a crawfish boil (kids really like to watch the tugboats and tankers). Having lived many years in south Louisiana, we are familiar with NOLA - personal safety depends greatly on location, here we felt very safe. Short drive into downtown (15 mins up Tchoupitoulas) or take the street car.

My wife and I stepped out of the car in front of the house and the first thing that happened is a stranger said "Hello." Having lived outside of Louisiana for so long, we had to remind ourselves that people are actually friendly and they are not trying to steal from you.

The owner and property manager were very responsive and proactively helped with any issues or concerns.

When renting from VRBO / AirBnB / Home Away my biggest concern is cleanliness. I have severe allergies to dust and pets and my young son is worse than I. Unlike other properties VRBO properties I have stayed at, this home is very, very well maintained and clean, mattresses are all encased in allergy dust covers. Wood floors throughout keep the home very dust free. We enjoyed ourselves very much.
Thank you!

Perfect home for graduation weekend!

  • 5 of 5
My giant family stayed here for my graduation weekend and the home made their stay. The simple, modern interior and open layout in the living area beautifully done, and the location is perfect. From the very beginning, the owners were extremely accommodating and lovely hosts! I cannot recommend this home enough. My family is already planning their next trip to Nola so they can stay here again!

Uptown Gem!

This house was perfect for our girls getaway weekend! The house is spacious and easily sleeps 9 people. It is decorated beautifully with all modern finishes. There is an open kitchen/living room/dining room area that is great for hanging out. Great location too - walking distance from Audobon park. The owners are lovely and made the whole process very pleasant. Can't recommend this place highly enough!

Uptown New Orleans

  • 5 of 5
March 8 - 15 2014
We recently had a family gathering in New Orleans and decided to try a different type of New Orleans experience. We visit New orleans very often and for years have stayed in the French Quarter. This trip was planned to stay in the Uptown area and see New Orleans from a different perspective. The Uptown area has so many wonderful restaurants, shopping areas, and of course is very near the Audubon Park. We just don't go to this area when staying in the Quarter (too much of an effort). With two small children this was an ideal location for walking in the neighborhood as well as the park and local playgrounds. The house was absolutely beautiful as well as very comfortable and accommodating for seven adults and the young children. The owners have young children and therefore have furnished the house with a play area as well as toys and other items to accommodate that age group. The owners were extremely helpful when we arrived and explained all the entertainment systems, appliances, and local areas of interest. We all had a wonderful time and agreed that this area of New Orleans is a MUST for a real Big Easy experience and the house in so many ways made that happen. Just sitting on the front porch was worth the trip. As a group, we all agreed that the house was ideal for our trip and we can not wait to return for another visit.
