great spot for groups

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 friends stay 4 nights for a 30th birthday celebration. Location is great, we walked to the French Quarter most days but you can also cab it for fairly cheap. I love the neighborhood, and highly recommend walking it at least once. The house is spacious and clean, and has everything you need. Only a couple things I would be wary of-- the neighborhood is incredibly quiet after 10pm, so any outside noise is probably going to annoy the neighbors. Of course there is a 24/7 party going on just down the street in the Quarter, so keeping it quiet around the house wasn't really a big deal. The other thing is 2 of the 5 beds were pretty uncomfortable, which affected sleep quality for a few of us. The other 3 beds were great though. Overall, I thought this house perfectly complemented our NOLA experience. Highly recommend for groups of 6+

Annual Gathering for Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5

A group of eight stayed three nights two weekends before Fat Tuesday. The location is ideal. Downstream of the French Quarter so you have no traffic (its all upstream). Its a simple cab ride into and out of the festivities.

One fun bonus was the local parade that happened right outside our door. And the neighborhood has quite a few interesting and good restaurants.

The house was more than adequate with a nice patio area out back. As the owner notes, hot water can be an issue but it was not constraining.

Group of Friends for Mardi Gras

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, and were delighted with how this house worked out. It is way nicer than the pictures show! We were all really impressed with the high ceilings, the colours and the interior decor. About a 20 minute walk to the French Quarter, but lots to see along the way, and it wasn't a sketchy neighbourhood to pass through. There are also tons of great restaurants right around - highly recommend Bacchanal Wine, and the Joint BBQ - all a few blocks away. And it was nice to get off of Bourbon when you were done with the partying...

We would definitely go back!

Family of Eight Vacations in New Orleans' Bywater Elegance

  • 5 of 5

Family traveled to New Orleans for the first time. Family traveled as a Grown Up Family Unit for the first time. Bywater Elegance was perfect for everyone. Bedrooms were secluded enough so no one family bothered another either coming in late at night or getting up with a 10 month old. Hot water held out magnificently. Beds were comfy. Kitchen large enough for people to cook on one side and others eat at the spacious kitchen. Had all amenities in the kitchen. Washer and dryer cut down on amount of luggage. Living room held us all as we watched the Patriot's play off game. Taxi back from French Quarter was $9-$12 depending on which end of the street you came from. Four family members rented bikes and said that was they way to see the city.
