Excellent Experience All Around

I am hesitant to honestly review this VRBO because that might mean it is harder to get a reservation here in the future...but my conscience won the battle so here it goes. This place was GREAT!! From the location, to the furnishings, to the typed dining guide provided by the owners this experience was awesome. The owners were very responsive and accommodating to us and our travel plans. We travel to NOLA often but typically stay with friends; however, this time we were traveling with friends who had not visited New Orleans before and needed a place to stay. We took a chance on a VRBO and hit the jackpot! This place very comfortably accommodated all 9 of us (4 adults and 5 kids) and it is in the best Uptown neighborhood in New Orleans. We were a easy walking distance to Audubon Park and Zoo; about 4 short blocks from lots of shopping, coffee shops and restaurants on Magazine St.; and only 1 block from a supermarket and drugstore. When we went to the French Quarter it was a quick and direct drive or bus ride away. Simply stated, we were close to the action when we wanted it and also able to relax and enjoy the city like locals at other times.
In terms of the house itself, it is very comfortable and impeccably clean (even though we were there just about on the heels of the last renters). The house retains its original New Orleans charm but it has updated amenities like central air/heat throughout, updated bathrooms, and new appliances in the kitchen. The house is obviously well maintained and seems to have been pretty recently remodeled. There is a small yard in back, but with such close proximity to Audubon Park we didn't have occasion to use it.
Needless to say, we had a great visit to New Orleans and this house met our needs perfectly. We are already looking for dates next year for our return visit and stay here. The bottom line - if you are looking for a great place to stay that will give you the local/native experience of New Orleans while also providing easy access to popular tourist attractions, THIS IS THE PLACE!
