Great!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful apartment. Central air, all amenities described. Owner provided coffee and water which was really appreciated. Some really excellent restaurants within walking distance. Street parking only and we were able to park close. The neighborhood is safe with a lot of hipsters. Internet was excellent. We enjoyed our stay.

Convenient location

  • 4 of 5
Interesting eclectic neighborhood, but safe and parking available right outside the unit on the street. I wouldn't call this duplex "elegant", but it was adequate. It was well equipped with most things we needed. The owner, James was helpful and accessible.

We were able to walk to the French quarter from here. We used the navigation on our smart phones to help us find places.

There is a small market just a few blocks away that carries not only groceries but some take-away deli dishes as well. We walked a block away and had dinner at the newly-renamed "Silk Road". It was so good, we ate there two of our four nights.

Only complaint is that the floors and carpets in the duplex were dirty and dusty and the bathroom mat was sticky.

I would recommend this unit.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the bath mat the cleaning staff did not notice a previous guest had spilled something on it. It has since been replaced. The floors are new and oak so as much as we vacuum we are still going to have some sawdust come up through the cracks. The rugs in the master and living room were Miss Veidts so there really not dirty just old..
Glad you enjoyed your stay very sorry about the sawdust we are hoping it all about gone now.

Excellent price/location/parking

  • 5 of 5
As all previous reviews stated, wonderful neighborhood with very friendly people. I was cautious parking on side of street, but no problems ever getting spot due to living in the country mentality. Short walk to quarter, great local neighborhood market. Wish apartment would of had check out suggestions like where to put full trash bags, house keys, etc
Will definitely stay again.

Little Apartment in Marigny- Bywaters area

  • 4 of 5
My sister & I had a good time here visiting NOLA. The Neighbors were very friendly. We had a fuse problem, but was fixed by us very quickly since James was out of town.. I phoned him and he was very quick to respond and told us where the fuse box was.. ( front of house) lol didn't see it when we arrived. The kitchen counter tops and refrig needed to be cleaned as well as the bathroom floor.. My bed wasn't that comfortable but my sisters was.. Maybe i'm just used to my own bed... would recommend place mats that can be washed though. We didn't use them. I would recommend a car w/ navigation or use your smart phones as we did so you can find your way back from the french quarter.. We were all turned around and flagged down a bicycle person to give us a ride back to the apartment.. It was very hot and muggy and I was not used to it!! The apartment had a good air conditioner in it though. thank goodness.. I would recommend to friends & family.. Thank you James for letting us stay here.. :)

Glad you enjoyed yourself, sorry you had a few problems I was in New York and usually do a walk through with the cleaning guy but was not here to do it . Im printing your review and showing it to him today I hesitate to replace him because he is a disabled veteran but that is no excuse very sorry.Promise you will have a better experience next time.
Thanks again
James

Good stay

  • 4 of 5
Overall, the apartment is as expected and described on the website. This is not a luxury apartment, but you have everything to your disposal. There are plenty of bath towels to use, the rooms were clean. We also appreciated the cold water in the refrigerator when we arrived. James, the owner, was very responsive and provided guidance. I gave it a 4 stars, because the blankets in the closets were old. But otherwise, we had enjoyed our stay. Thank you

Great home base, comfortable stay, convenient location!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and my parents were pleased with our first VRBO rental. This was a great location, in a quiet but fun & quirky neighborhood convenient to the French Quarter and other parts of the city. We could walk to a fun little neighborhood bar and a delicious diner around the corner, plus there was plenty of street parking for our rental car. The entire apartment had a lot of character, the sitting area was nice and comfortable, and the kitchen island was the perfect place to eat some takeout muffalettas. The wall between our unit and the one next door was a little thin, and the bathroom and dish drainer could have been just a tiny bit cleaner, but all in all, this was a great home base during our visit, and we would definitely stay again on our next trip to New Orleans.
