COULD BE VERY GOOD IF CLUTTER AND SEWER SMELL REMOVED

  • 2 of 5
Good safe location near lots of good restaurants and the streetcar. Appliances good. Many doors do not latch. Door to separate studio was near impossible to close. House smell of obnoxious cleaner, fungicide or pesticide for first three days. House was cluttered with "stuff". Seemed like the owner is a hoarder. Kitchen cabinets were jammed with unnecessary items and much outdated food and condiments. Armoirs were locked so hanging and clothes storage was limited. Bar-b-cue was out of propane. The shower curtain in studio does not work. The charm of this historical home is mostly lost because of the clutter.Fix doors, remove hoarded items, and "decorations", remedy sewer smell side of house near the studio, and make sure the house doesn't smell of chemicals and this rental would be worth the price.

Owner's Response: Again, thank you for selecting our rental. You came to the house twice for a tour and took professional pictures of every room. Your concerns were addressed immediately.

As far as the pesticides, we never use chemicals on our fruits. Occasionally, the City of New Orleans will spray the neighborhoods for mosquitoes as we are close to the Mighty Mississippi River.

Extra propane are always on site for grilling.

This house and linens are cleaned with bleach and Fabuloso. I have no other storage for chemicals but in cabinets.

Surely a phone call would have remedied some of your concerns. You asked me if you were permitted to use items in the cabinets and pantry that you looked in. I replied, yes. I tell you in writing that I provide a case of water, detergent , soap, and dish washing liquid. Of course there are other items left in the house that you may enjoy using. But, I make no guarantees. It is always good to provide what you want to use during your stay. I have no idea of others preferences.

Email us and let us try to make it up to you. We want to make your stay comfortable.


With regards,

GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't do this place justice. The house is just gorgeous, with a perfect patio for sitting and drinking wine. It is just around the corner from Jacque-Imo's and some other restaurants and bars, and just a short walk from the trolley line. The owners were fantastic and very accommodating, allowing us to check in early and even providing us with maps, brochures, and other helpful information about the area and New Orleans in general. Highly recommend this place.

GREAT PLACE IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
After being subjected to a Bait-and-Switch scheme on AirBNB for a condo in the FQ, we had to make a last minute reservation with the owner, Ms. Dorothy. She was responsive and accommodating from the start, worked with me on arrival/departure times and met us on arrival.

While we were a bit concerned driving to the house from the airport (our cabbie took us through some rougher neighborhoods), the place turned out to be exactly, if not better, than what was advertised. Sitting literally a couple blocks from a cool commercial area (cafes, bars, restaurants, clothing and antique shops) the house is perfectly placed if you plan on doing anything more than the FQ.

Eight of us slept comfortably with room for more, so long as you are not too concerned with privacy (one of the bedrooms must be walked through to get to three others). In general, the place had all the amenities you'd possibly need (wifi, appliances - washer/dryer/toaster etc., bedding, towels and the odds and ends found in homes but you always forget on vacation, like extra zip lock bags).

In short, our experience was so good overall that if we return to NOLA, we will look to book with Ms. Deborah.

LOVED OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME.

  • 5 of 5
This home has it all! We had 5 people in our group and there was more than enough room for all of us. We enjoyed our Saturday afternoon sitting in the front yard meeting the neighbors, everyone was very friendly. The Casino, French Quarter and other sites were very close by. We will most definently be back. Thank you Ms. Dorothy for the great weekend!

FIRST TIME TO USE HOMEAWAY.

  • 5 of 5
I happened to be the best man on a Bachelor party and wanted/needed a place big enough for everyone to stay under one roof. We had 10 guys and it was plenty of room to be comfortable.

My flight arrived later then the first arriving guest, and they advised me that Debrah (Owner) was there on the arrival, gave them keys, a tour, and set out the rules. Which were basically, eat, and stay hydrated, and use your head. :) Made since to me.

We partied our faces off, followed the rules, respected the house, neighbors, and had a legendary trip.

We were all excited to see that the house was so nice, well kept, and plenty of amenities to use. This house has a full kitchen with everything you need to cook a 5 course meal, and more towels and blankets for the comfort needed while on vacation.

Our group stopped at the local grocery store and bought plastic cups/plates and snacks and did not get to utilize the kitchen in the full amount in which we could.

The nightlife: The title, around the corner from Jacque-Imos hits it on the head. 2-3 minute walk to Oak Street that had 4-5 bars/restaurants where we ate breakfast/lunch/dinner then hit Bourbon Street. It was nice to be in walking distance of bars/restaurants to watch the games during the day, also the house had a big screen in the living room, master bed, and kitchen.

No one had vehicles (which was a good thing) the cab ride to Bourbon was $25-30 w/ tip for a group of 5, and 10-15 minute ridetime. We would all pitch in or just alternate paying. Was a concern that ended up being hassle free. We also had the opportunity to ride public transit, although we never took advantage of that. (5-10 minute walk). Most cabs would be on the street when we walked out to Oak Street (2-5 minute walk) from house. Or call them ourself, or have the bars call for a pick up.

The house is absolutely beautiful and well maintained. It really made me feel the history of NOLA. It has a private upstairs bedroom with one queen, master bedroom one king, and detached living area with its own bathroom. Plus 2-3 queen beds, plus the sofa in the living room. Spent a lot of time on the front porch and sitting area in the yard too.

I am normally not a 5 star person, but everyone was comfortable and had a great time. I will defiantly be staying at this home again in the near future.

I plan to bring my family to visit and enjoy the culture of NOLA in this historical home. Great time. Can't wait to return.

Thanks

GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN UPTOWN

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic location and fantastic house. 10 of us stayed in this house for Halloween weekend and had a great time. The photos don't do it justice. It is great for a weekend party pad or for large families vacationing in NOLA. I would highly recommend this house to medium-large size groups. I will be staying here again.
