PERFECT VENUE FOR A WEDDING!

  • 5 of 5
We rented Edie's FABULOUS property (the main house, servant's quarters and gardens) for my daughter's wedding. It could not have been a better choice. We were able to stay on the property before, during and after the wedding. We held the service and the reception in the garden area as well as the house. There was more than enough room for all two hundred guests. Plenty of places for people to 'get away' in a quiet spot as well as room enough for dancing and socializing. The venue lent itself as the ultimate in New Orleans style weddings. And it was very nice to simply 'walk home' to our rooms when the party was over. Let's talk about the house and the Quarters. More than comfortable, roomy, well-appointed, very clean, excellent amenities and reasonable in price. Edie was the absolute perfect hostess. She provided us with housecleaning, was there if we needed her and also made sure we had our privacy and felt completely at home. We truly felt for a week this was 'our home' and I can't emphasize how much that helped keep us relaxed and focused on our big event. We hosted a Thursday night party (and at the last minute we realized we needed an 'extra hand' to help with some serving and guess who stepped in??? Edie! That was heaven sent!) and we hosted the rehearsal dinner on Friday and Saturday evening the wedding. Also the property is within walking distance of parking for your guests. For those guests who might need a wheelchair this property is completely wheelchair friendly. It is hard for me to say enough about how well-maintained this property is; how well-appointed the kitchens and bathrooms are; how easy Edie is to work with and finally how perfect it is for wedding celebration, birthday celebration, anniversary....it lends itself well to any of these occasions in part because the owner and hostess, Edie, is so relaxed, calm and accommodating that your event can't help but be perfect. And when the partying is done, there are still plenty of places very close at hand to visit. And Edie is a mecca of local information. After a good night's sleep (the area is blissfully quiet) we were ready to hit the town and Edie pointed us in the right direction.
Giving Edie this review is the least I can do to thank her for making this wedding occasion absolutely perfect and I would highly recommend this property to anyone planning a wedding in New Orleans. You can't ask for a better, more romantic venue than the Secret Garden.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
I had never been to New Orleans and was having a really tough time finding accomodations under $175 a night during the week of Halloween. After a suggestion from my brother in law, I started to research rental properties. I came across Edie's rental through a recommendation from someone that she knew (I inquired on another site, for another property).

We arrived around 8pm on a Monday night and Edie was more than accomodating. There were four of us - in a one bedroom condo. Edie was gracious enough to provide us with a blow up mattress, extra sheets, blankets and pillows. The condo we stayed in was perfect for the four of us (all in our 30's). The courtyard on this property is beautiful! There are a few fountains, orange trees...luscious plants and two very nice sitting areas with tables and chairs. We loved using these areas to unwind from the hustle and bustle from the French Quarter as it's calm and relaxing there. Edie is the perfect host and really enjoyed staying there.

The location is perfect and you can walk everywhere. When we come back to visit New Orleans we'll stay with Edie again, for sure! Thanks so much, Edie!!!

UNLIKE ANY OTHER SETTING IN NEW ORLEANS

  • 5 of 5
I've been to New Orleans many times - but no accomodations compare to Edie's courtyard escape. Fountains, fruit trees, comfortable chairs provide a relaxing break from the loud and boisterous New Orleans world. Edie is a wonderful hostess and we greatly enjoyed staying with her and meeting her son and daughter and dog, Karma. The apartment was nicely furnished and very welcoming - although we spent most of our time in the courtyard reading, listening to music, enjoying a drink and preparing to venture out. The location is great, you can walk everywhere. We're coming back for jazz fest!.

THE SECRET GARDEN, AN UNEXPECTED BIT OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
This piece of heaven is located only two blocks from the center of entertainment for the French Quarter, yet is in another world! You walk from the busy frantic world of bourbon street into a world of bubbling fountains, exquisite tropical plants, quaint pathways, and unbelieveably soothing gentle breezes to a charming fully equipped kitchen, luxurious french styled bedroom, and a lovely living room equipted with television, a radio, and luxury sofas readty to relax.
We love New Orleans but did not want to do the hotel experience. It was my husband's 75th birthday, so it was special. After contacting the owner of the Secret Garden we were provided with informations about best places to eat, where to shop for groceries, location of transportation from our place, weather conditions, clothing to pack, you name it the information was there instantly.
We arrived late in the evening and there awaiting us in our suite was a radio playing, soft candles lit, a bucket of champagne, a birthday cake, and my husband's favorite beer, and a beautiful note from the owner. I couldn't recommend this place more highly!
