Why Chris chose Uptown

We are so close to the street car, making Bourbon street nightlife accessible, but yet not inescapable. This location is perfect for us, being between Audubon park, the Magazine street area and Downtown. We can get a taste of every aspect of the city that make New Orleans so special : restaurants, music, shopping, attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Perrine and Christopher....We had such a great time in your house last week! The Norwegian girls were so impressed with New Orleans and made the most of every minute...jogging, a picnic in the park, shopping, and, of course, eating and music!



We were all impressed with the decor of your house...and think that was Perrine's doing. And thank you for the wine....such a nice gesture.



Hopefully, we can return next year...at least some of us. Being 91, I can't plan too far ahead!



Best regards, and good luck with your medical career. Lucille

You could probably find somewhere better, but this is fine in a pinch

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the experience was average. I've rented many homes on VRBO and Airbnb in the past, but this experience was particularly lackluster. The house is as described. The neighborhood is good. It's quiet but walking distance to a hip little strip and and a 20 minute drive to the French Quarter. The number of rooms and beds available are exactly as described on the listing.

However, it should be noted that house is a duplex. 13 people in a living room is noisy regardless of how mindful they are. Add in the fact that we're in New Orleans, and let's be real, there will be some drinking- it's loud. We're a group of 30-somethings, so we've toned down a bit from our more rowdy days. But we were still asked to quiet down on Friday and Saturday nights. I chose to rent a house because I knew we'd be loud. I would likely have rented elsewhere if I knew this was a duplex.

In addition, we had some issues with the house and communication with Chris. I messaged him a few times prior to our arrival, and I felt like I was bothering him. For example, he didn't know the answer to my question of, "are their toiletries in the house?" (There are).

When we arrived, the code didn't work to get into the house. The neighbor let us in. I called Chris, but his answer wasn't clear to me how it was going to be fixed. About an hour after, I texted him telling him we fixed it ourselves.

In addition, the fridge was broken the entire time. We learned this about 5 hours into our stay, and I texted Chris immediately. He told me that it had been broken before, but that he thought the repairman fixed it. My friend is diabetic and carries insulin, so we had to find a workaround for that. We also had to throw out all of the food that we brought that wasn't eaten the first day. Chris never offered an apology or any kind of fix (coolers, a credit, etc.). This could have been a huge problem if we planned to cook all our food.

There are many chores to be done when you leave including stripping the bed, taking out all garbages, cleaning out (broken) fridge, etc. There's also a fee list on the closing details telling you what happens if you miss something. That seemed really condescending and left me with a bitter taste in my mouth. I did receive my full deposit back. But I waited until I got it to write this review.

To sum up, I would try to find a different place if I were you. But if you can't, I think it's fine in a pinch.

Centrally located older home that was comfortable for our group

  • 4 of 5

The property is centrally located. The house comfortably slept our group of 12. The kitchen is adequate, but who cooks when in NOLA. The bed rooms were well apportioned, water pressure in the showers excellent. The furnishings are bit dated but comfortable. The house served its purpose well for our team of 12.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We come to the city frequently and have stayed at this property a few times now. Really like the location of this property being close to street car line and would recommend it to anyone. We have a large family and the large number of beds makes everyone comfortable. Its set up well because we go with our adult children and grandchildren. The master bedroom upstairs and the bedroom downstairs are private bedrooms (1 king or queen per room), which works for the couples. They have offstreet parking available (although we don't usually need to bring a car). Chris is also a great cook and makes us a pot of redbeans every time we come back which is a definite plus!

for our purposes the house was great.

  • 4 of 5

the bunk beds weren't used on our stay - one was SO high that an adult would have a hard time getting in it and i wouldn't allow a small child to climb that high to sleep in it. the other one, the frame rocked when my husband tried to climb it and we were afraid of it crashing down on the people sleeping below! the "extra" bed is literally in the middle of the hallway upstairs so if you needed to use it you had NO privacy. we used it for storage of our suitcases and designated it the "drunk" bed in case we needed it! basically, there is 1 bedroom on main level w queen bed and a bathroom on the other side of the house. the upstairs has 2 bathrooms - 1 a jack n jill bath btwn the 2 bedrooms and another one. we had 5 couples and no issues with hot water or bathroom arrangements. it all seemed to work out. there are 3 bedrooms upstairs too. one bedroom has 3 twin beds - 2 can be pushed together for a couple to use and it has the HIGH bunk bed. one room has a king bed which was the nicest room - this shared the bathroom w the other bedroom that had 2 queen beds in it (this is the room me,my hubby, my BFF, and her hubby shared) and the queen bunk that seemed very unstable. all of the mattresses could use an upgrade or a pillow top pad for comfort - esp the king bed and the pillows could be replaced also. overall the house worked for us and the landlord was not only nice but super easy to work with, accessible, accommodating and a great guy. we'd stay at one of his properties again.

Great New Orleans lodging option for groups of all ages

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property with close access to all of the major attractions New Orleans has to offer. We utilized Uber and could get to Bourbon Street and the French Quarter within 10 minutes. Being able to get away from Bourbon Street at times was a nice luxury to have and this house gave us that option. The check in and check out processes were seamless and the house was very spacious and in a nice neighborhood. I would highly recommend this property to any future visitors of New Orleans.
