This review is so late but we have been so busy blissfully honeymooning since getting married in NOLA last fall, that I forgot to take the time to write it. It is hard to imagine finding a better home to rent during our stay last year. We booked this house for the week of our destination wedding and several wedding party members stayed with us during that time. From the street view of the property, you have no idea what beauty awaits you inside! It definitely exceeded our expectations. The pictures are great, but they do not do this property justice. The décor is so tasteful, the home is so spacious. As soon as you enter you know that you are about to really enjoy yourself. There are so many areas to sit and relax, from the 2 seating areas in the front part of the home, to the spacious kitchen, to the backyard which is a New Orleans Oasis!!! The gas lamps flickering at night, the soothing sound of the water from the pond it is a totally serene and relaxing environment. We had multiple areas to sit outside including the Gazebo. I had initially planned to go to City Park with my photographer to take my Bridal Portraits on the day we arrived, but when she came to meet me at the house and saw this backyard, we agreed to shoot right there which was so convenient for me as far as getting in & out of my dress. We even did some shots inside the house. They all came out beautiful!!! Also, since there is so much space in this home, we were able to host a luncheon after our wedding rehearsal with our wedding party and even welcomed some of our wedding guests that arrived the evening before the wedding. Everyone absolutely loved this house & was raving about it. The premiere sound system allowed us to have music throughout which was very much appreciated by these music lovers. Each morning we all fought for our turn in the shower that can only be described as heavenly! The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the cooking utensils, dishes, pots and pans you could ever need & we used them throughout the week. Jackie, who was right next door, was responsive to all of our needs. The only issue we had was the washing machine did not work. It would not drain or spin properly. Jackie called out a repairman but they just never got it working quite right again. Honestly we were able to make do without it & I will not let that minor issue make our review less than 5 stars. It pales in comparison to all of the wonderful memories we made with our family during this time !
