About Nicelle Herrington

All my life working in the entertainment industry both my husband and I know luxury. We are constantly inspired by the south and this amazing city of New Orleans. We wanted to take something that had been left for decay and turn it into to something beautiful. We feel the property is well designed, amazingly decorated and ready to be enjoyed in its full southern glory!

Nicelle Herrington purchased this house in 2012

Why Nicelle Herrington chose Bayou St John

It had a quite elegance just decaying on the street behind us, we just had to bring it back to life again.

What makes this house unique

STEPS FROM JAZZFEST... You will not need a car, walking distance to cute restaurants and shops.. Bike to the French Quarter... This property was a labor of love and perfect for the discerning travel that wants to live like a local.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated my daughter's 21st Birthday with family and friends. Our hostess Nicelle was welcoming and provided a beautiful place for us to stay. Great coffee shop, grocery stores, and quaint restaurants within walking distance. Accessible transportation to accommodate our large party back and forth to Magazine St. And The Quarter.

Sleek and modern accommodations which were beautifully decorated.

We also rented the studio and that too was quaint and very comfortable place with privacy from the main house.

We were also welcomed with a bottle of wine and local beer, and local

Community Coffee.

Weather was a bit rainy however if it were sunny would have taken advantage of the heated pool and the wonderful deck that oversees the pool.

Highly recommend this property! Thank you. We had a fabulous time.

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I met in NOLA for my birthday. Our children were on break and we all spent 5 days in the much needed sunshine. This house is amazing...pool, great backyard, plenty of room, quiet neighborhood. The absolute best part is our wonderful hostess Nicelle. She has great recommendations (one of which was a private chef who will come and cook for you - a menu which you get to put together. We weren't able to utilize this service due to our schedule but, next time for sure!). She has everything you need and is an absolutely warm and amazing woman. We went to the aquarium, the city park, we had a flyboarding session with Tony of NOLA Flyboards (who is an absolutely amazing instructor who managed to get all of us who signed up - including the kids - to fly.) Every evening we got to return home to this amazing home. I can't say enough about our experience. Everything was perfect.

True Distraction Entertainment meets Modern Ponce De Leon house

  • 5 of 5

True Distraction Entertainment team stayed in this house while working an event in New Orleans. I can tell you that hands down, you will not find a better host than this. Nicelle is just incredible. This property had everything we needed, and was fantastic. Awesome pool, great backyard perfect for an occasion. Plenty of space, comfy beds. It has it all. Great quiet location as well. But again, the true star of this show is the owner, she just makes your stay incredible. Thanks so much for preparing the home upon on our arrival, being incredibly responsive and making everything so smooth. Anytime we go to New Orleans this will be our first option of stay. Highly Recommended

Holiday reunion

  • 4 of 5

Fun place to meet up with immediate family flying in from around the country, allowing space for family and privacy to get away from family!

Had been years since we had been to New Orleans and we were able to do everything on our "to do" list with the help of a rental car. Family trip to Oak Alley Plantation, wonderful family dinners at Cafe Degas and restaurant right next door, both a quick walk up the street.Lots of fun at Rock n'Bowl with local friend, and 18 holes of golf with everything rented at Audobon Golf Course. The 20 somethings enjoyed the walk to and local flavor of Stanley's for beers, football and peanuts.

House is lovely, though "smart home technology" too smart for any of us to operate:(

Left a lot of time for talk, though had to watch the PSU/BC game on our iPad on the coffee table! Happy result though!

We had a relaxing wonderful time and the 4 full days was just right to get some downtime together.

Just sorry we did not meet Nicelle due to the Christmas holiday, though her assistant was very helpful and pleasant and a wonderful local guide.

Greatest New Orleans Experience

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house for my birthday weekend with my girlfriend and couldn't ask for a better stay! The house is beautiful. This an authentic New Orleans house and the home type is referred to as a "double shot gun home". It was beautifully renovated, but kept all of the original characteristics which gave it a ton of character. The design is a rustic/industrial/modern design with exposed wood beams, distressed original wood floors, open floor plan & high ceilings. Very Clean design. The furniture and design of the space is amazing. Such an extremely cool space. The location is fantastic. It is where you want to be in NOLA. Close enough for a bike ride to the French Quarter and around great local gems to visit. Nicelle, the owner guided me to the best restaurants and places to get a drink in the neighborhood and throughout New Orleans. I also wanted to treat myself to a massage for my birthday and Nicelle was able to arrange the best massage at the house. I loved this place and would suggest to anyone who wants to visit Nola and not be in a tourist trap. This is the best place to stay for a authentic New Orleans experience.

Very gracious host & cute location!

  • 5 of 5

Nicelle, the owner, is very accommodating and set up this home beautifully for us. We rented the entire property; including this chic, modern-updated home and cute, studio space next door which together accommodated our group celebrating my husband's birthday. The saltwater pool in the courtyard was a perfect way to end our three-day trip--she heated it to 90 degrees in November for us! A perfect location for groups that like walking a bit to the Quarter or Frenchman Street for music. Parking on the street was very easy, and we didn't move our car the entire visit. There are cute cafes and a quaint grocery store just down the street. We can't wait to return!
