This home is in a unique historic neighborhood and is relatively close to New Orleans' famous French Quarter. The house dates back to the 1870's and is a typical, but lovely, example of the old craftsman style of the period and region.

AWESOME STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for 3 nights with my husband and 11 year old son. We had a great stay! Place was clean and there were breakfast foods for us in the fridge, which was really thoughtful. It was a nice opportunity to experience NOLA as a local. We had our little puppy with us and didn't have to worry about her disturbing hotel guests. The lady who lives in the front part of the house was really nice and helpful regarding the area. We never moved our car once and took the bus and trolleys everywhere and did just fine without getting lost. Really great location and rates! The tub/shower was mentioned in other reviews. There's a learning curve the first night you use it; make sure the shower curtain isn't blocking the drain or it will fill up as you shower- also we learned that you keep warm water longer, you start with cold water on and then add hot water as needed, not the other way around. It worked! This was one of the best family vacations we've ever had! Really recommend staying here! We miss it and think about it often.

NOT TOO BIG--NOT TOO SMALL--JUST THE RIGHT SIZE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this wonderful Esplanade Ridge apartment in March. The hosts were extremely accomodating and the rental had everything we needed. We really appreciated the washer and dryer and the cosy gas fireplace. Our son joined us for two days and found the sofa bed very comfy.
If you watch the bus schedule you will find the trip into the French Quarter easy to manage. Take the bus the other way and make sure you enjoy City Park. It is a real treat. I think the beignets there are better than Cafe du Monde!

EXCELLENT NOLA GETAWAY SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I loved staying in this apartment home! We almost didn't book it because of the one recent negative review, but we were so glad we did! The apartment home is exactly as pictured. Our favorite room was the large living room with the tall ceilings, cozy couches and chairs, and the fireplace that came in extra handy during NOLA's rare arctic blast. The bedroom is small, but there is a closet large enough to store luggage and keep it out of the way (and you'll want to spend your free time hanging out in the living room regardless). The bed itself is comfortable. There is also plenty of street parking in front of the house. The one minor inconvenience at the home is the shower. The shower has a handheld shower head that only reaches up to about 5'5". So, showering required some skilled back-bending moves for my 6'3" boyfriend. Even with this tiny issue, we still loved staying here and we didn't think it warranted losing a star off the rating. Last but not least, Richard Prell was excellent to work with. He responded quickly to emails, and he was very helpful. Stay in this adorable apartment home, you won't regret it!

Owner's Response: I want to thank Lourdes for her wonderful remarks and they were wonderful guest.
The only thing I can say about the shower is that there is a shower head above everyone's head but everyone seems confused how to use it there is a round knob on the side faucet to direct the spray. I am 6'2 and the overhead spray is above my head. It is an old time shower/hand spray set with a large round button on the side that you pull/push to direct water to the over head shower. In the future I will start to inform people how to use it. Once again I thank Lourdes for her very kind remarks

WONDERFUL STAY IN NOLA!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived from a long road trip and easily found the house. The neighborhood is really nice and the surrounding houses were just as impressive. We were greeted upon our arrival and shown around the house - true southern hospitality! There was even a beautiful (and yummy) birthday cake waiting for me in the refrigerator! The house was very comfortable, with all the amenities that you could ask for (including a washer and dryer), clean and felt very safe. There is a bus stop less than 10 minutes (walking) that will take you directly to the French Quarter. A cab from the French Quarter back to the house was (drum roll) less than $10. My husband and I enjoyed Sydney's beautiful photographs in the house and also enjoyed speaking with her and seeing her home. I would recommend staying here to anyone and plan to return asap. Thank you for making my birthday and my stay in NOLA so wonderful and memorable! It was hard to leave! Toto, the pup, was also very sweet! :) A few good places to go: Acme Oyster House (WOW), Napoleon House (Pimms Cup) and Cafe du Monde (duh) just to name a few. Next time, we plan on bringing bikes to tour the city. I cant wait to return!

Loved the house. Neighborhood was fine and public transportation was less than half a block away. The only drawbacks I have to say is that it was kind of weird when Sydney knocked on our door to see what our plans were for the day. She needed a ride to a festival. I understand asking a neighbor something like that, but seriously we were vacationing. Loved the home like feel to the place!

CAUTION IN BOOKING THIS PLACE IF YOU LIKE CLEAN!

  • 1 of 5
First..do not trust the pictures! The place is very old with beaten up furniture and old appliances. The main problem is filth! The bedroom has A LOTof crud built up on blinds, window AC, and ceiling fans! The crud also hangs from the bedroom ceiling! The sheets were over worn with fuzz balls on them and when pulled backed cover had hair in bed! They were all wrinkled like they had not been changed. Wanted to leave but stuck. It was miserable because would not turn on fan or AC unit in fear of the gunk blowing all over the place. These people should be ashamed to take people's money and allow people to stay in these conditions! The bath tub is an old tub with a handheld shower that you have to hold to bath unless you are 3 feet tall and the shower curtains are on both side and touch you when trying to shower. It was a terrible experience staying at this place and think it should not be allowed on this website! Once again the pictures DO NOT reflect the true appearance of this place. Renter beware! Finally owner never did return my call when trying to locate. Had to find it on my own from picture! Terrible!

Owner's Response: cleaning stsff was replaced (SORRY MOM) FURNITURE IS A MIX OF OLD AND NEW NEW ORLEANS. BATHTUB IS A CLAWFOOT TUB ORGINAL TO HOUSE FROM 1860. HAS ORIGINAL FAUCETS THAT COULD BE USED AS STRAIGHT FAUCTS TO TUB OR HANDHELD SHOWER OR A LEVER DIRECTED WAtER to head lever shower. that it is a unique item and has many functions and abilities may have been over the experiences of guest. most guest find the tub one of their best experiences. as for the furnishings of the apt it is a mix of hurwitz-furniture (one of our better furniture stores) and a mix with period antiques pieces. kitchen is stock with basic new appliances. cleanging was amiss for several weeks but has been rectified. sheets are changed every booking and are totally replaces after a month.
I can vouch for my place and say that it is a part of old new orleans. i do feel that some people would be better off in hotels as places such as ours can't compete with what people think new orleans should be and what it is
