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!!!!

The house was clean. We were close to everything. The bus service made it easy to get around. I would recommend house to anyone. The house had everything we needed.

Awesome Location and Nice Place!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment is perfect...only within a few steps from Magazine street and only a few blocks from the St. Charles Street Car. The Uptown district is a nice place to stay...close enough to the French Quarter and other places, yet far enough away that you can enjoy low-key and quiet nights. We did rent a car, but preferred to use the Street Car when possible. The Street Car, being the oldest one in the world is very unique! It allows you to easily get around the city and see some historic homes and sites of New Orleans. Magazine Street is fantastic! The first night we got there it was pretty cold out, but we easily walked to Magazine Street to find a place to eat. Magazine street is very unique and as many eateries, bars, and shops. It is a busy street, but since the apartment is a few steps off Magazine, you aren't able to hear all the traffic. We chose to stay in Uptown because my brother lives a few minutes away from this location. We were very happy with our choice to stay here as it was very clean, quiet, and safe!

The place is an upstairs apartment, so there will be a few stairs to climb which was no issue for us. The place was perfect for the 4 of us as it was large enough to accomodate our needs. The leather furniture is very nice and comfortable, beds are super comfortable, towels are very large and kitchen isn't huge but modern and is big enough to cook a few meals. We also appreciated the large flat-screen TV as we were able to watch our favorite sports team play one evening. The internet was also very reliable and we used it while staying here. This place even has a drive to park in, which is super convenient and hard to come by in New Orleans.

The owner is very easy to get ahold of. There was a mix-up with parking in the driveway but he got it taken care of and even offered to park on the street so we could use the driveway. He also allowed us a late check out on our last day so we could travel and enjoy the city one last day. I would definitely recommend staying here as the price is PERFECT and very affordable! We couldn't have asked for a better place or location.

Great location with comfortable furniture and good amenities

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in a good location right off Magazine street near Napoleon. The owner met us upon arrival and lives below which is good in case anything comes up. The apartment was not large but big enough to relax in. The master bedroom was large with a very comfortable bed. The kitchen was small but had coffee pot, dishes, pots and pans and what we needed to make breakfast for a few days. There was starter everything to include some extra bath items which was good. The owner also had a pack and play ready for our arrival which really helped out. there are several good restaurants in walking distance as well as lots of shopping and bars. i would recommend this place to anyone looking for somewhere safe to stay uptown thats within walking of distance of the good parts of magazine street.

Location couldn't be any better!

  • 5 of 5

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 !!!!

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
