I was put in charge of finding the accommodations for my Mom's 80th birthday celebration. I am an experienced traveler, traveled all over the world, along with owning my own rental property that I also advertise on VRBO. My Mom, Aunt and Uncle grew up in New Orleans but moved away many years ago. I had to try hard to satisfy them since they were very familiar with the homes in the area. I did tremendous research before committing to this property. Luckily, no one was disappointed with my selection.
From the moment you walk into this home, you can tell it is oozing with New Orleans charm. What a wonderful place. From the super high ceilings, wood floors, floor to ceiling windows, to the moldings and claw footed tub, we felt like we were living in the past. Don't get me wrong, all the modern conveniences were there such as two great working air conditioners and a gourmet kitchen. Our group of 9 people ranging from 21 to 80 had an awesome time. We were not disappointed with anything in this lovely home.
Check in was so easy. There was someone waiting for us upon our arrival to give us keys and tell us how everything worked and what we needed to do when we left.
The home is very centrally located to the city. If you do not have a car, you can easily walk two blocks to the street car that takes you almost any where you need to go. There is a small convenience store about a block away, a regular grocery store (Breaux Mart - 3233 Magazine St.) and a Walgreens (3227 Magazine) about a mile away going uptown. It is pretty hard to get lost.
I am also a runner and ran different directions each day. The first day we ran to the French Quarter and back (about 5 miles) and the next day we ran uptown on Magazine to Napoleon to St. Charles and back (also about 5 miles). The following day I drove a few miles to Audubon Park for another great run. Although being hot and humid, the scenery was great.
We also entertained larger groups during our stay. Everyone seemed to hang out in the kitchen area (where most good parties usually do) and eat the food. There was always plenty of room regardless of the size of the group.
Again, I cannot say enough good things about this place. When we return to New Orleans we will definitely stay here again.
Todd, thank you for opening up your home. Our trip was perfect.
