We were two couples and one pet staying in this beautiful house. It is located in a safe, attractive and walkable neighborhood that was less than ten-dollar Uber ride to the French Quarter. It has off street parking for two vehicles and a cozy courtyard for relaxing. Coffee shop is conveniently located in the corner of the street. The owner was easy to work with and always accessible. We highly recommend these accommodations to travelers to New Orleans and would certainly use it again ourselves.
Rather than sharing a room at the Marriott or Sheraton on Canal, my bridge partner and I decided to have separate rooms and baths at this apartment. The accomodations were nice, clean and well appointed. The owners were wonderful to work with. I felt safe taking my run/walk before dawn in this neighborhood, then heading over to the coffee house located very near the apartment. It was less expensive to park the car and take cabs to and from the tournament than pay the going rate for parking at the hotels.
I would recommend this property to anyone and look forward to returning there myself.
Myself and 5 colleagues stayed here for almost a week while attending a conference. Sleeping space was a bit tight with 6 adults, but do-able. The neighborhood was awesome- felt very suburban, quiet, good restaurants around- and it was very easy to get downtown to the convention center. Mya was very easy to communicate and work with throughout the process. The property has tons of character and made me want to stay there forever.
Upon arrival we weren't sure what to expect. Very first time in the "Big Easy". Turned out to be the best vacation. This rental fit us perfectly. This is and older established home. Great rooms that accommodated us to a tee. Beds were super comfortable. The owners were actually there when we arrived and treated us like family right off the bat. It's in a very quiet neighborhood and safety was never in question. Cute cafe on the corner and local restaurants too. Not far from the French Quarter. We would DEFINITELY recommend this cute home to rent. Thank you Mya for everything. I think the only thing to suggest is for the owner to get a guest book for the house so we could have written something for the owner to look back on from their guests.
Okay pictures don't give this home justice !! My family and I wanted to relax since we travel to New Orleans every year and didn't want a Hotel ;( with 3 small children. It's private and you can't hear anything from the renters up front. The home owner was very sweet and answered all my questions. We will be going back again soon and for 1st time VRBO renters we were so happy with being able to relax and having a private room for my mother and the girls and my husband and I in the other. Lots of closet space! Plenty of linens and utensils in the kitchen. Yes we did cook and found some markets. There is a hutch with letters and notes of recommendations of restaurants and menus was very helpful. Also there's a coffee shop just up the street in walking distance ( did this every morning) perfect. Great place !!! Has a washer and dryer so no more having to go up an elevator and doing laundry for 2- hours !! Yay!! Livingroom looks small but it's very spacious. There was 6 of us and plenty of room dining room was a bit small but didn't care much we just enjoyed it !!
My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at Mya's lovely home. We were very impressed with the quality of the accomodations and how well the place was furnished. It looked exactly like the photos...lots of space, well-proportioned rooms, great beds and a comfortable living room. The place definitely reflected excellent taste and maintenance. The kitchen was well-stocked with plenty of dishes, pots and pans, along with cutlery for those who cook or even do a little cooking. We even took advantage of some herbs - thyme, rosemary, tarragon and chives - growing in small pots lined on the porch whenever we cooked. It was so helpful to have on hand so many things, ranging from spices to kitchen garbage bags. The kitchen also came with a wonderful gas range, dish washer and huge refrigerator. Having a washing machine and dryer on the premises was an added bonus. Clearly, there were all the amenities of home! Although we had a car which we parked very easily on the streets, we also did a lot of walking not only in the neighborhood but also to places beyond such as Parkway Bakery and Tavern on Hagan Street, Mandina's on Canal and Angelo Brocato's Italian Pastry Shop on North Carrolton. We are walkers but City Park is within easy walking distance and you can get good coffee and delicious beignets at Port Call, not to mention some good eating at local restaurants within walking distance of the house such as Luizza's by the Track, Santa Fe and The Half Shell. Two local supermarkets on Esplanade, Cansecos and Terrnanova, offer good services. Mya was always available by telephone or email and never failed to keep in touch. I definitely recommend this place highly!
