Why Lance Pippin chose Touro

I have lived here for 20 years. It is my ABSOLUTE favorite spot Uptown. I walk every where. The shopping, eating, and neighborhood feel of this place is without comparison.

What makes this apartment unique

Shopping, walking, eating, and fun surrounded by one of the oldest neighborhoods of Uptown in the amazing City of New Orleans! Grab a cocktail on the porch of the Columns Hotel, ride the streetcar down the Avenue or just stroll through the Garden District. It will be fun I promise!!!!

Location couldn't be any better!

This is a great place to stay especially if you just want to explore the area. Literally just 10 seconds from Magazine street, you can explore all the shopping the area has to offer with awesome restaurants scattered along the way. It's also in a very safe area.

Being a native from New Orleans, the apartment was a traditional victorian style with a little added charm (old floors, very high ceilings, old mixed with new). Wife and family loved it while we stayed there and will be our choice for future visits when we don't want to stay at a family members house.

Lance the owner was great, always made sure to get back with me if I had any issues. Definitely wouldn't hesitate recommending his place to anyone.

Grad perfect

  • 5 of 5
We had this place for our daughter's Tulane Graduation and it was perfect for family. We were able to come home between the morning unified ceremony and the diploma ceremony. This place so right at Magazine!! What more could you ask for in convenience. We love Lilette and it is a block away. Owner was helpful and emails were answered quickly. I would highly recommend.

Magnificence off Magazine !!!!

  • 5 of 5
Wow !!!! We miss this place already !!!! What a great property to stay at !! All the comforts of Home. Two cozy bedrooms with a King and Queen bed, A/C, Cable TV (but only about 10 channels !!), Blu-Ray Player (but bring your own movies !!), huge sofa, full kitchen, and my favorite--soft, thick, large bathroom towels !! I would recommend a maximum of 5 people staying here. Steps away from Magazine St. where you can find lots of shopping and great places to eat, all within walking distance !! Some even deliver. French Quarter is about a $10-$15 cab ride away. Lance was readily available if we needed him. He came by to introduce himself and welcome us. A couple times I needed to ask him something and he responded to my texts immediately.
One of the things I really appreciated about Lance's place was the "At Home" feeling it gave us. During our stay the weather could have been a little better. If we would have been cramped up in a Hotel I would have been going crazy !!! We were so comfortable in Lance's place that the weather didn't even matter !! Thank you Lance and thank you VRBO for having such an amazing site to give us an alternative to the "Hotel, Motel scene !!!" We'll be back and we wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else !!
One thing I would want to let people know about the property is that it is an "Upper Level" property and there are about 12 stairs or so you need to be able to climb.
If I could make one suggestion to Lance---More Cable channels and maybe even a TV in the Master Bedroom. I say this because during one of the rainy nights I got stuck watching a "Say YES to the Dress" marathon !! My wife and my Mom were enjoying it but I sure wish I could have gone into the bedroom and found something, anything else to watch !!!! Hehehe !!!!

Loved it - loved lance and his team!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for a nicer stay or place to stay in. Lance and his team really went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. We were travelling with two infants and a 12 year old and the home was very comfortable for us even with room to have my friends over for dinner. It is bright and sunny, and immediately next to great restaurants and shops on Magazine. I look forward to our next visit.

A wonderful stay in New Orleans

  • 4 of 5
This apartment provided a great home base for our stay in New Orleans! The apartment was lovely and in a great location -- a short walk away to the great shops and restaurants on Magazine Street and in easy proximity to buses and the cable car to get all around town. It comfortably housed our family of 4. We would definitely stay there again!

Nola with friends

This place is excellent. The location is perfect. It was clean, well appointed and beautiful. Just barely off magazine which is a fantastic street of shops/ restaurants but a few blocks down the quieter end - perfect for sleeping. We walked everywhere - there is easy public transit and sharing a cab is even cheaper with a small group to the quarter. Pictures do reflect it exactly but it should be known that the couch is super comfy soft leather.

Car: not necessary

Located in Uptown New Orleans and is a stones throw from amazing Magazine Street shops and restaurants. This is a very walkable space that is 100 feet from the bus line and 5 blocks to the world famous St. Charles Avenue Streetcar line. I have lived in and owned this property for 15 years. It is MY personal favorite location in New Orleans. Just off Magazine Street between Louisiana and Napoleon Avenues. It offers off-street parking and unit is a completely renovated 800 sq foot apartment with central A/C and heat. This 2 bedroom and 1 bath apartment features one King and one Queen bed with new linens and 1200 thread count sheets . The 12 foot ceilings and newly refinished hardwood floors are original 1900s structure. The kitchen has new granite countertops and sink with a stackable in unit washer and dryer. There is a 50 inch flat screen tv in the living room with cable and WIFI included. There is a new left side chase leather couch that seats 4 comfortably. You are centrally located uptown for incredible shopping with 5 award winning eateries less than 2 miles from the apartment. Some of these include Lilette, The Bouligny Tavern, Cafe Atchafalaya, Commanders Palace, La Petit Grocery, and at least 20 more I don't have space to list. New Orleans is known for its amazing food and we are located in the heart of it. The Audubon Zoo and Park are less than 3 miles up the street. We are very close to fun libations and live music. The apartment is also just 5 blocks from the Mardi Gras uptown parade routes. I would love to meet you and have you stay in the apartment. I live on the premises and allow 5 guests max. This is not the French Quarter craziness and I like it that way.. Thanks for looking, and I hope to see you soon. Guests over 25 please. Thanks for reading. LP
