Great Historical Home in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

A real historical charmer. The Greek Revival Cottage Home was more than that. This was my first vacation rental and was to accommodate 14 ladies for a bachelorette party. The home is located in a very quiet neighborhood with very friendly neighbors. We enjoyed the pergola/gazebo to sit under and enjoy our adult beverages. We didn't do any grilling but was a awe with the charcoal pits and gas grill. The ladies enjoyed overcast weather because the weekend we were here was the weekend of the Epic 500 year flood in Louisiana. But we were actually high and dry, just cool overcast weather that afforded our group a very enjoyable cool August weekend. We ladies did though throw one Awesome Epic Bachelorette Party New Orleans Style. Some of the reviews of this very nice historical place recited clutter. Our group enjoyed the exquisite chandeliers and grand furnishings. I gave you a real feel of that era. The ladies enjoyed wonderful conversations about the décor and it's history. This grand home was far away from all the noise of the city and the French Quarter, but close enough to experience it all for the weekend. Deborah was an excellent host that answered all of my call ad messages very promptly.

Thank you Deborah for providing so much literature and information about the Riverbend, Uptown/Carrolton, Garden District and the French Quarter, etc. Eating, shopping and so much more including the St Charles trolley to the Garden District and the French Quarter is just a few easy walking blocks away. I will definitely suggest this rental to my friends ad family. And with permission post to my Pinterest Board and Facebook Page. I hope whoever reads my review will find that I, along with my group of ladies enjoyed my stay and I know you will too. I hope to have an occasion in the near future to book the Historic Greek Revival Home in the near future.

Our Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The rental home was Great. Not a single bad thing about the home. Everything is within walking distance if you do not want to leave the area. The neighbors are great people and Deborah and Ray kept the house in tip top shape. We visited with a group of 9 and everyone slept comfortably. Looking back at things, I will suggest one thing: a handout with closest grocery store, and gas station. But that's neither here nor there when it comes to how much we LOVED the home. We have discussed it over and will for sure be visiting again. Thanks
