Some friends and I actually stayed in this house during a summer festival in NOLA for a weekend and really enjoyed our stay. As a severe arachnophic, I was freaked out by the spiders int he front Magnolia tree but the owners were so kind and gracious about it. While we were out grocery shopping, the husband came over, sprayed the tree, killed those spiders and left us two bottles of wine for our troubles. Nothing like great hospitality!
The bedrooms were comfy but a little dusty, the wifi worked, the kitchen was clean with all the accoutrements of a livable space. We plan on getting the house again this year and can't wait to return. I don't like the noise and stink of downtown. I love the charm of Oak Street and smaller neighborhoods that are less tourist-y. Lots of local color and charm in this space. I would highly recommend.
Though a bit far from the Quarter, this location's access to the bus line and street cars enabled us to sight see all over the city. The modified shotgun allowed us to invite friends and family for short visits. The owners we're close by and extremely responsive to our needs and requests.
Thanks for the great time.
This place was just perfect for the six of us. Nancy and company were very nice. They made sure our needs were met and that our stay would be great.... and we surely did! The house was clean and beds were very comfortable. We had fun and slept peacefully in this quiet and safe neighborhood away from the noise of bourbon st. Will highly recommend.
Great place! Nancy was most gracious and the place was perfect. Exceeded our expectations and location was wonderful. Definitely would recommend!
Nancy's little shotgun shack -- New Orleans architectural term and in no way a reflection on the state of the house -- was just what my three friends and I needed for a change of pace on our seventh + visit to New Orleans. The house was tastefully furnished and surprisingly cool even without running the air conditioning. We made breakfast most mornings and enjoyed being able to hang in the late afternoon and have a cup of tea before heading out for the evening festivities. Uptown is a wonderful walking neighborhood and there were a number of wonderful restaurants and bars (including The Maple Leaf) within walking distance of the house. While we didn't find cabs easily accessible during the day, it was very easy to take the Saint Charles Street Car back towards the Quarter and connect with any additional transportation needed. Nancy stopped by most mornings to see if we needed anything, even though she was entertaining her own out of town guests. Enjoyed our stay and would rent again. - Barbara Parkyn (San Francisco)
