About the Owner

My father's family was from Louisiana and his cousin was a famous New Orleans writer, Lyle Saxon. I first saw the city on my 21st birthday and fell in love with it. I am a classical composer and New Orleans is 'nirvana' for a musician. There's always a story behind every door in the French Quarter. I am standing at the tomb of Marie Laveau, the famous voodoo queen and am writing a musical, Voodoo on the Bayou. I originally lived on St. Ann Street in the Quarter and got the idea from the walking tours that passed by my window.

Real New Orleans Experience

  • 5 of 5

I love how VRBO gives you the opportunity to live like a local! This place definitely fits the bill. The building is very old & interesting...a metal door takes you to a hallway that feels like it is between 2 buildings, each well over 100 years old. Another metal door and you're at a beautiful old staircase leads you up to your private patio and room. The room is bare bones, but isn't lacking anything you need. The owners are super friendly and helpful. Raj went out of his way to help me with a personal item that needed repair. Then there is location! So perfect! There's almost always music right outside the door, just a block to Bourbon Street & close to the Mississippi River. And the price? omg...can't beat it!

If you're not!

  • 5 of 5

If you've never done a rental through's great!! This was my first time using this service, and I couldn't be happier! I visit New Orleans a few times a year and decided to try something different. This rental was half the price of a hotel room and was completely private!! It was a huge thrill leaving the apartment each time: opening the steel door and walking right onto Royal Street. It was a taste of living like a local! I traveled alone this trip, and as a female, had no concerns at all. There are three doors (two metal) between you and the street, I didn't have any problems, so I had no need to contact the owners. But they quickly responded to all my questions via email before I arrived. Love this place!!

Best Kept Secret in the French Quarter

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! Right in the middle of the action.

Comfortable, clean and quiet, perfect for taking a break or a nap, or getting a good night's sleep.

The room rate can't be beat. We will definitely stay here whenever we visit New Orleans.

An Amazing Time at an Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great. Excellent location right on royal, and all the regular amenities of a hotel room were provided: towels, soap, shampoo, hair dryer, and TV. I was lucky enough to meet with one of the owners and she was the sweetest person I have ever met. I would love to come back to New Orleans and stay here again.

Great condo in the French Quarter

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and very centrally located. although it is close to the action it is very quiet!!! A big plus was $$, at least 1/2 the price of most hotels in the Quarter.

Location, location, location!!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to overstate how awesome the location of this apartment was. Step outside, and you're on Royal. Walk a block, you're on Bourbon. Walk 2 blocks in the other direction, you're at Jackson Square. Walk less than a block, you're at Preservation hall, the famed Jazz hall.

The apartment itself is pleasant, clean and functional. The owners were very easy to work with and very kind and helpful. My wife and I loved the place, and would love to go back.

The property is in the best possible location. It's also an oasis and very quiet and private. The outdoor space makes it particularly special.
