Bigger than expected.

  • 4 of 5
I would stay there again.The hosts are super friendly and helpful. The area of Bywater - Marigny, is peppered with good restaurants and bars, and the area is safe to walk around in.We took a city bus to go to the French Quarter for our cemetary tour and the bus stop was steps away from the lovely home we had rented.New Orleans is loaded with history, but I would never drive on their hwy. 10, unless it was in the wee hours of the day. It's so congested and you should see the cars. Lots of bended fenders and hanging side mirrors. We took a cab ride and got an earful from a 24 years there, resident.We noticed that emergency vehicles are viewed as a nuisance, and ignored by the locals.

Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here at the beginning of September with 2 other friends. Where to begin. Let me start with my interactions with Richard. First, he was always prompt with his replies and very informative. The site gave me some problems during booking but in the end it all worked out and Richard was quick to fix any problems.

Next, the apartment. It was perfect! Great size for 3 people. Very clean, smelled nice, the air was on and everything was cool during the hot days. It was nicely decorated and Richard really makes it feel like a home instead of staying in a cold, unwelcoming guesthouse. While we were there, I only needed to contact him once and he was quick to respond as well.

You may have read the reveiws about the sweet dog, Flora. She is still there and lilkes to greet everyone. She has a sidekick which I cannot remember his name but he is a ball of energy. Great greeters!

Next, the neighborhood. This was such a cute little neighborhood. Great finds, unfortunately we ran out of time to hit everything in the area but we will be going back. I never felt unsafe walking at night. I'm not saying don't keep your guard up as you should always in any neighborhood but we were never worried about our safety and we walked home pretty late every night.

Last, the access to other neighborhoods. There is a bus stop right on the corner that will take you to the quarter. There is also another line about 4 blocks north of the house in case you miss the bus on the corner. Everything was easily accessible. The Marigny, the Quarter, even going out to the Garden District was a breeze on public transportation. I think we only took a cab once or twice.

This was a great find for a perfect price.

Thank you Richard!!

NOLA has so much to offer!

  • 5 of 5
New Orleans is a great city! So much to offer and so much to do! The only problem is it doesn't have enough parking! This apartment is about a 20 minute walk to the French Quarter and French Market. It's great exercise but if it's hot & humid take plenty of water. One of the best things about this apartment is that Richard will save a space for you right in front if you rent or drive your own car! A huge plus since parking in the French Quarter can be quite expensive! Thanks, Richard!! The apartment is comfortable, spacious and clean. The neighborhood is interesting but safe. The kitchen is large and well equipped so you can cook small and large meals if you want. This apartment is a great value for the money!

Great stay with local community feel

  • 5 of 5
Great place to stay! We had the flavor of the local community rather than a tourist version. Richard & his greeters Flora & Tommy were perfect hosts. Comfortable setting and great local places in the neighborhood. We enjoyed Fraedy's and having breakfast with Sparky, the cat. We enjoyed The Joint BBQ, Maurepas, Booty's, Bacchanal, Frenchman's St, the beautiful riverfront, visiting with the locals, and NOLA.

This was our first visit to New Orleans and we didn't want to stay in a hotel. This place, and the hosts, were amazing! Our hosts were very hospitable and accommodations were perfect! It's about a mile from the French Quarter so you can walk, ride a bike, or drive. There are restaurants walking distance of the home plus a beautiful park. So much to do and see and this location was perfect for our "hub" and definitely a comfortable home away from home. Will stay there again should we plan to visit New Orleans in the future. Highly recommend this location and home...it was perfect!

A gem in the Marigny-Bywater district

  • 4 of 5
Four of us came down for a wedding, and this place worked perfectly for us! Richard made sure somebody was there to welcome us since he couldn't be, and the rest of the weekend went seamlessly. Located in a great neighborhood, with many fantastic restaurants and cafes nearby, we were able to walk everywhere - including to the wedding itself and down to the French Quarter fest that was happening that weekend as well. I'd recommend this place in a heartbeat, and might even have to come back and visit again! Thanks, Richard!
