This was an awesome and less expensive alternative to a hotel in the French Quarter. It is perfectly located near Canal St. and Bourbon St. - basically a mile or less to everything. The property manager was easy to get a hold of and assisted us with all of our questions. The condo was stocked and furnished with everything we needed. We rented both the Creole nest 1 and 2. One of the condos was perfectly clean, and everything was working properly. The other had a few problems, but none that I couldn't get over. The Keurig didn't work correctly and decaf was the only option. The fridge was not cooling, but the freezer was and we let maintenance know about it. The big detractor for me was that the bathroom didn't seem as clean as it should be. This would be my big recommendation for the property management - make sure the cleaning personal are doing an adequate job. Look it over as if you were going to be the one using the condo. It wasn't a huge deal, but it was small stuff I noticed. Otherwise, very happy with the condo, and judging on how the other condo was PERFECT I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. I'm sure it was all a fluke :-)

PERFECT location, GREAT condo and very responsive, helpful management

  • 4 of 5
I have stayed in a lot of VRBO properties all over the country and have always had very, very good luck. From the start, Marcus was helpful and responsive. He answered all of our questions upfront, gave us some recommendations and great information about the location of the condo, and just generally made the process of renting very easy. I'm going to list a few pros and cons about the place, but overall, I would 100% stay here again.

Pros - the location is perfect. You're literally half a block off of Bourbon street, right by the corner of Royal Sonesta, which is where I was used to staying in the French Quarter. That being said, it was quiet. I slept like a baby each night when I could never say that at Royal Sonesta. The unit was just as described - a one bedroom, one bath condo (just a bit difficult to find the unit once you get into the building). Great floor plan and usable space. One thing to think about, if you're more than just a couple in the unit, the bathroom is through the bedroom. We had one friend stay with us one night last minute and it was awkward when she came through in the middle of the night.

Cons (kind of) - again, if you have more than just 2 people, or if you're 2 people who won't stay together the whole time, it can get a little tricky getting into the building. We had one key fob, so we had to coordinate the whole trip (not hard since it was mostly just me and my fiance, but something to think about too). The building itself is still going under some construction. It's an old building and while pretty well maintained, there were workers there during the week, it was a little messy near the elevator, and they started early during the week - thankfully, not on weekends (7:30 a.m. on Monday a.m.). But, the French Quarter is old, and you're going to get things like that anywhere.

Overall, we had a wonderful time. Marc was very helpful and accommodating and we plan to be back. THANK YOU!

Close, but NO CIGAR !

  • 2 of 5
My wife and I just completed a four night stay on 9/16. First the good news. The condo is nice, spacious, clean and well appointed and comfortable. Now the BAD NEWS. The building is a mess. About 10 days ago they had a roof/ceiling cave-in leaving roof tar and debris and THE ELEVATOR NOT WORKING. This condo is on the third floor and there is no AC in the stair wells. No fun with luggage. The second problem is with the manager. When I was looking for a place I read the reviews and others had complained that the elevator was frequently non-operative. I called the manager, Marc Jones and explained that my wife just had hip replacement surgery and the elevator was a MUST. He said its all fixed and everything is OK. Marc knew in advance of our need for the elevator. We arrived about 9 PM. Got into the lobby and discovered the mess and no elevator. I called Marc and refreshed his memory about our need for the elevator to work. Marc never, in four days, made the effort to call us or to make arrangements for another room. If you don't like climbing starirs and don't like walking in tar, I'd suggest you cancel your reservation and find another place.

Owner's Response: Sorry for your inconvenience. However, this historic French Quarter building is only undergoing a little required maintenance. We also spoke when you guys arrived and I informed you of the back elevator which is and has been working great. Thanks for your review.

honesty is the best policy

  • 3 of 5
first, the downside..summer in the south and the inside of this atrium-style building had no air running! fine if you are near an exit, but it made for sweaty commutes when loading/undloading car if you make several excursions! Also, while i can say that the property mgr, Marc, was quick to respond to phone calls, there was an issue with our parking card- while out for the day I received a call letting me know that the card was to be shared with another unit (not in my party) this was not disclosed at time of booking, and since we took a few excursions out of walking distance, it was not feasable for us to run the card back to whoever may need it/whenever they may need it..and possibly be unable to enter parking garage upon my return...fine if you are there to hangout on bourbon st, but I feel that is a detail best advertised up-front. the unit was also pretty dirty, needed a good detailed clean... and the sofabed..even my 11 y/o tossed and turned, ended up making a cot on the couch instead.. Now, the good- the unit is comfortably furnished otherwise, the unit was quiet, coffee supplied is nice, and the location is centrally located for walking-distance to many neighborhoods and restaurants.. Marc, fire the old cleaning service and we'll be happy to come back next year!

Thanks again for your response and I look forward to seeing you guys real soon!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5
We spent close to 7 days in NOLA for my bachlorette party and had an amazing time. There were 5 of us total and we were very comfortable there. The Creole Nest was close to everything! Literally a 10 second walk to get onto Bourbon street. We were close enough to all the fun but was still able to rest peacefully because you couldn't hear any noise coming from the street.

The only reason why I didn't give this a 5 star is because the elevator only worked the first day we were there. We didn't mind walking up and down 3 floors however it was a pain with our luggage.

Also, we found some hair on our sheets the first day we were there. You could tell that the sheets were cleaned however we found more than 6 strands of hair underneath the pillow.

The towels were also still dampy when we got there (it was folded too). However we did check in super early so this is probably the reason why the cleaning person had to rush through the cleaning process.

But overall we had a great time there!

Creole Nest I

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great stay at the Creole Nest!! From the very beginning of the reservation, Marc was extremely helpful in answering our questions. He was always available and prompt with his responses. I was a little nervous at first because we had a group of girls and I was concerned about safety staying in the middle of the french quarter. I could not have been happier with what I found when we got to New Orleans. The place was directly off Bourbon, walking distance from everywhere we needed to go (even in heels!). The building was very secure and the neighbors were also very responsible about not leaving the door open, letting anyone in, etc. The call box is right under a street lamp so you don't have to worry about being in the dark. Once we got in to the apartment I was again so impressed! hardwood floors, beautiful furniture. Marc made sure the place was completely stocked with towels, sheets, coffee, etc. We seriously could not have asked for anything better!
The rooftop pool was awesome too!!
Check in and check out was so easy as well.

I will definitely be staying at the Creole Nest when I go back to New Orleans!!
