Lived up to the hype

  • 5 of 5
When a place has this many positive reviews, there is little left to add. All in all the place more than lived up to expectations. My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and the location was excellent, close enough to easily walk to Frenchman St (maybe 7 minutes) or Bourbon St (maybe 10 minutes to the main area). Plenty of space, super comfy bed and a beautiful tree for the holidays (thx again Ron/Mark for the ornament as well). The recommendations for restaurants and maps they provided were very helpful as well. Would definitely stay here again when we come back if available.

Great Getaway at a Great Price

  • 5 of 5
Though we've been to New Orleans multiple times, our stay at this lovely VRBO property made for the most comfy stay ever. The full size, fully equipped kitchen; a super comfortable king bed with crisp, premium sheets; the hot tub; plush robes and more made it feel like home, only better.
Great music all up and down Frenchman's Street, right around the corner.
This is an unbeatable way to enjoy the French Quarter without the Quarter's noise and crowds.

Wonderful Again

  • 5 of 5
When my wife and I decided to return to New Orleans for a Thanksgiving vacation, a big part of our excitement was we would get to stay in this wonderfully comfortable guest home. Spacious, inviting and gracious hosts who care about the details of a great stay. Ron and Mark provide a great experience for their guests. We enjoyed the hot tub quite a bit, lounged in the super comfy king bed and rested in a peaceful neighborhood. When we return to New Orleans, we will return to this lovely home.

Quiet Retreat Close to the Action

  • 5 of 5
The photos don't do this place justice. It was a lovely, cozy retreat from the constant barrage of noise and lights on Bourbon Street. Ron was a gracious and informative host, taking the time to tell us all about the house and the neighborhood and some of his favorite spots around the area.

We were in NOLA with a group of 12 people celebrating a friend's big birthday. Unfortunately, the rest of our party decided to stay in hotels in the vicinity of Jackson Square, which meant that we ended up walking a mile or more one way each time we met up with them, usually a couple of times a day. We enjoyed getting the exercise (greatly needed given the huge amount of food we ate!), but be aware that while this place is very close to the Quarter, there are popular parts of the Quarter that are still a bit of a hike. If you are here when the weather is warmer, renting bikes would still make this super convenient to most everywhere.

The upside to being a bit out of the fray is that the place is, for the most part, VERY quiet, whereas our friends who stayed in the Quarter commented that their rooms were quite loud, often until 5 a.m. The one exception to our peace was one night there was a renegade goose or duck honking his heart out for a couple of hours next door. No idea what that was all about, but it certainly was no fault of Ron or Mark's.

If you are a fan of getting more for your money and don't mind walking or biking a little bit, look no farther than this place. From the super-plush robes to the private hot tub to the delicious provided coffee, Ron and Mark have ensured that your experience will be more like you're staying at the home of friends than in a cookie cutter hotel room. Thumbs up.

Our fun week in New Orleans

  • 5 of 5
I'd been wanting to see the World War II Museum since it opened, so asked Herself is she'd like to drive to New Orleans for a few days. Since we live in the Dallas area, it's an easy drive and after we arrived, Ron greeted us and then spent a couple of hours giving us some history on the quaint Creole cottage, tips on restaurants and clubs and personal maps he's made for guests. He and Mark are very pleasant, although Mark was a bit under the weather while we were there.

The cottage is just as shown in the pictures, and even nicer. It's just perfect for two old geezers like us, and would easily accommodate an additional couple. I was concerned about finding available parking, since I've seen how crowded some neighborhoods can get, but so far, we've been able to park right in front of the house.

Ron & Mark have thought of just about everything for your convenience and comfort - the bed is fantastic; so high up you need a small stepping ladder to get in and out. It's a big king-size, four poster that is great to look at and even better to sleep in.

I'm wishing now that we'd planned to stay more than just three nights, but this is close enough for another trip soon. We love New Orleans restaurants, and we will only be able to make about six while we're here.

Excellent - Yet Again!!

  • 5 of 5
This really is our home from home. We've stayed here three times and are coming back for our fourth visit in April. We love everything about the place - the location, the charm, the facilities, the owners, and that bed!!!!! We never sleep so well anywhere else.

We've already said quite a bit in our previous reviews so we'll keep this one short - We cannot recommend this place highly enough and would encourage anyone to make a booking.
