THE QUINTESSENTIAL NEW ORLEANS EXPERIENCE.

  • 5 of 5
This gorgeous home was recommended by friends who have stayed there for the last three years in a row. This was my first trip to New Orleans, and I can't imagine a better experience then staying in this wonderfully gorgeous historic home. The details in each room will make your head spin. From the decor to the furniture to the serene courtyard that separates the main from the carriage house, I can't imagine a more picturesque house in the French Quarter. What surprised me most was how little outside noise I heard while in the house. A pleasant bonus indeed.

I can't recommend this property enough for anyone who wants to enjoy New Orleans in style and comfort. I can't wait to come back next year!

ELEGANT AND PRIVATE IN THE FRENCH QUARTER

  • 5 of 5
When we stayed in this elegant home, we felt like special guests of the owners. The interior is so beautiful. Even though it's in the French Quarter, it's very quiet. The private courtyard, fountain, and gardens make a perfect place to relax or socialize. We really felt Southern hospitality in this rental home!

SPRING BREAK TRIP RENTING BOTH HOUSE AND CARRIAGE HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We took our 3 seniors in high school to NOLA for 5 days of their spring break. The Royal street house main house and the cottage/carriage house together was just right for our 2 girls and boy and all of us to spread out. The location was perfect for us to get anywhere in quarter and easy for hailing a cab to places outside of it. We enjoyed the back porch morning and evening for hanging out together. Had everything we needed and we got things at Rouse's quarter market for snacks etc. Husband and I like to get out and walk so we got time together while kids slept in or did their thing at different restaurants too. The house manager Nikki was right there close if we needed anything. We love NOLA and have been many times as a couple and with the kids so knew places we wanted to visit and found some new ones around the house. It was like being a resident which we love and have rented houses in several places. Hated to leave and would definitely stay again!

I highly recommend staying here...you will not be disappointed!

TRUE NEW ORLEANS LUXURY EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Wow. We booked this house and the carriage house for our daughter's wedding weekend. It was my first time using VRBO and I was hesitant, but this place exceeded all of our expectations. The weekend was so wonderful and special because of this house! The local manager, Nikki, greeted us as we drove up and helped us unpack. She was there for us anytime we needed for anything during the weekend. The house is definitely a home. We immediately relaxed and felt so comfortable. We made so many special memories with the home always as a backdrop. My daughter and her friends had champagne while having hair/makeup done while watching the Alabama football game. Family and friends who hadn't seen each other in years on the back veranda getting re-acquainted over a beer from the outside fridge. The two little flower girls sitting in the cozy kitchen nook chair watching a video. My sister and her husband living across the gorgeous courtyard in the carriage house. (We both claimed it as 'our' courtyard.) It was great to wake up and all gather to have coffee/beignets around the large kitchen island. And of course, it made the wedding all the more magical- my daughter greeting her father for the first time in her wedding dress in the parlor, pictures (some formal and some not-so-formal) in the courtyard, having the limo arrive to take us all the Cathedral. All I can say is that I haven't written that many reviews for hotels, etc where I have stayed. But, this place is special and will far exceed anyone's expectations. The pictures are beautiful but the house is magnificent in person. Samantha and Bob, thank you for allowing us the priviledge of visiting your home. It is not a place to sleep at night- it is a true New Orleans experience. We will return whenever available!
P.S. We had one disabled person with us. The wheelchair was so easy to navigate around the property. You won't believe how wide the grand doorways are in the house.
