vacation rental description

Our inviting home embodies the storied panache of New Orleans, combining modern comfort with eclectic but luxe style. Stunning local art from talented artists, photographers and sculptors adorn our walls. Expansive ceilings soar overhead, with rich reclaimed pine hardwood floors underneath. Natural light pours in (but luxurious drapes allow you uninterrupted sleep). We feature abundant entertaining space, including a gorgeous “oyster palace” dining room, a great room banquette seating 7 under an exquisite chandelier (perfect for a casual meal, spirited card game or a quiet puzzle), and an outdoor table set and gas/charcoal grill on the beautiful deck. The sleek marble gourmet kitchen offers you a microwave, combination espresso/regular coffee maker, blender, toaster, cookbooks and cocktail guides, and a charming pot filler to start that pot of gumbo. Four high-end grocers and several delectable dessert emporiums are located nearby, as well as the #1 cheesemonger in America! Three spacious bedrooms furnish lush overdyed rugs, plush linens, new tvs, antique chairs and plentiful storage. Our bedrooms accommodate a master king bed, guest queen bed and middle room full-over-full bunk bed with a single trundle (appropriate for children or adults). Bunk beds can hold up to 220 pounds per bunk. In a pinch, a quality air bed can be employed. A comfortable leather sectional and swivel chair anchor the great room, along with a 56” tv and several Russian double-eagle chairs (featured in the Oscar-nominated film “Anna Karenina” and shipped straight to us from the studio in London) - a perfect set-up for watching the big game! Wi-fi access is available and a security system to keep you safe. The backyard is lushly landscaped with key lime and japanese blueberry trees and colorful solar lanterns, inviting you to sit at the fire pit or on the deck to toast the stars with a cold iced tea, favorite cocktail or glass of wine from the award-winning wine shop down the street. You may never leave the house!

If you do leave the house to explore the city that Jimmy Buffett called “either the beginning or the end of the Caribbean, depending upon your point of view”, we provide an extensive library of local tour books, dvds, fiction, children’s books and coffee table books for your enjoyment, and upon request can provide suggestions for dining and entertainment that fit your style, interests and budget. We’ll tell you where the locals go – just keep it a secret!

Maison Thombeau is a particularly perfect option for:

• 2-3 couples on holiday, eager to imbibe local music, food, art and cocktails!

• Families - our middle bedroom sleeps 5 kids or adults, and keeps kids entertained with a wii gaming system, books, games and a few other cute surprises (perfect for two families traveling with 4-5 children).

• Film professionals (great spot to relax after a long, hard day on set)!

• A sophisticated girls’ weekend of up to 9 women – art galleries, cute shops, famous jeweler, a day spa, the city’s best french restaurant, and even a high-end bridal shop, all within 3-5 blocks.

• Parents visiting students at Loyola or Tulane for graduation or parents’ weekend.

Sorry, no bachelor or bachelorette parties, renters under 25 years of age or loud outdoor parties – we ask you to respect our wonderful neighbors as we would!

traveler reviews for this new orleans house rental

Wonderful stay in NOLA. Incredible House!

Review submitted: April 10, 2014   Date of arrival: April 4, 2014

The owners of this property were excellent with communication and with wonderful recommendations. The house is fantastic, and we really felt a home away from home in NOLA. The property was immaculate, and we loved the artwork in the home (indeed, one of my girlfriends bought a piece done by one of the artists displayed in the home!). There was plenty of space, the home was well-equiped with anything you might need. The pictures don't do the place justice-- it's much bigger than it seems from the pictures. We were a party of 6 longtime girlfriends-- and it was more than enough space for us.

We had no problem getting around NOLA, even without a rental car. We took the streetcar easily and enjoyed the uptown neighborhood.

I would highly recommend this property. We had a fabulous time, and the trip was especially wonderful because of our stay in this beautiful home.

Owners response: So happy that you had such a good time. We love our local artists, so thrilled that you fell in love with them too! Hurry back!

Almost as charming as Magazine Street itself

Review submitted: January 21, 2014   Date of arrival: January 17, 2014

We heart Maision Thombeau! Our group of 8 ladies was very comfortable in this lovely home. The descriptions were spot on and the house was even more beautiful than the photos depicted. The location is great for discovering the Uptown/Magazine Street neighborhood, which really gives you a feel for the true charm of New Orleans. The Quarter is a short 10 minute cab ride for around $15.
The property itself is spotless and in immaculate condition. We mostly gathered in the open floor plan kitchen/dining/living room and on the back porch which gets great sun exposure.
The best thing about our Homeaway experience was working with the owners, Andy & Danetta. They provided super prompt responses to our questions ahead of time, plus gave tons of restaurant and shopping recommendations, and even a live music calendar for the dates of our trip! Their love for the city made all of us even more relaxed in and charmed by New Orleans.
I would definitely recommend this property to others and would love to stay here again in the future!

Owners response: A genuine pleasure having you all as our guests. Hurry back!

FANTASTIC! Great location and very accommodating!

Review submitted: January 21, 2014   Date of arrival: January 17, 2014

We had a WONDERFUL time on our girls weekend/bachelorette trip at the Maison Thombeau. The home was spacious, clean and in a great location. We had no problems with the property and the owners were responsive and caring for all our needs. It was lovely to be so close to Magazine Street (great shopping and bars!) and it was easy to get downtown from the house. I would absolutely recommend this property to others. Thank you so much Maison Thombeau!

Owners response: We loved having you and your friends for an important occasion. Do hurry back soon!
