Great stay for the whole family of 6 people

Easily check in with keycode. Also was able to use wifi with provided password. Off street parking available in the back while there is also the option of parking on the street. The listing description is accurate with 2 bedrooms with queen beds and 1 bedroom with 2 twin beds. The bathroom attached to the one bedroom gives plenty of space while we found the main hallway bathroom to be tight with the stand up shower and the toilet seat. If you sit on the toilet you are against the wall. But it was liveable. The property is clean and well maintained. Also manager is available by phone for any problems or questions.The available laundry costs $1 for washer and $1 for dryer which is located outside of the property in the back. The property provides detergent and dryer sheets. Also we were welcomed with several small bottles of wine and local jam. The kitchen is well equipped for any cooking you would like to do. We were too busy enjoying all the restaurant options. The St Charles streetcar is 2 blocks from the apartment and easily walkable. Also 1 mile away is local shops and restaurants. We enjoyed Louisana Pizza Kitchen one night. We had a car and were able to be in the French Quarter within 10 minutes. Parking in the French Quarter was $20 and up, so if you can catch the streetcar or a taxi. Also it is not too far from Audubon Park which is a lovely area to visit.Check in is 3pm and check out is 10am. If you wish to have an early check in at 1pm or a late check out, it will cost $35 each time for early check in or late check out. I would recommend this property to family and friends. Let the good times roll!

The Americana was perfect...

  • Submitted: May 9, 2013

Hi Lenora,

We arrived home last night from the Big Easy a little tired, a few pounds heavier (ha ha) but full to the brim of wonderful memories. I just wanted to say “Thank you” for hosting us for our NOLA vacation.

The Americana was perfect for us and was so convenient to the festival site and everything else we wanted to see. We had such a great time and totally fell in love with your city, the neighbouhood and the lovely people that we met.

I sure hope that we get back there someday soon.

Rick thinks that next time he would love to spend a couple of months.

Guess I better buy a lottery ticket today!! :-)

Best regards,

Nice place

We liked the location of this apartment, its in Uptown near the Garden District. It was easy to catch the St Charles bus and transfer over to the street car to head downtown! We were traveling with kids and my parents, everyone enjoyed the adventure of taking the street car! This place was very clean, loved the decor. I would definitely recommend this place to others and would consider staying here again if we visit New Orleans in the future.

This is an adorably decorated three bedroom unit that is literally steps away from the streetcar. We picked this Uptown location because it is but eleven blocks or so from our favorite spots in the Riverbend. Places like Cooter Browns for Andygator, Madigan's, and of course the most delicious Camellia Grill, and there are many others along the way such as the myriad of hotspots on Oak Street. We were able to walk to all of them when we wanted, or simply walk across the street to the neutral ground to catch the streetcar. Palmer Park is right on the corner as well, which was a fun playground for our toddler.

Lenora was a wonderful communicator from the get-go, She answered all of my questions and even called me to discuss which of her units would be the best fit for our family since we were traveling with a toddler and both of our mothers.

When we arrived, we were greeted with a nice welcome basket of Community coffee, jams and wine. We felt right at home. The linens and towels were top shelf... super soft and cozy. This Carrollton Avenue neighborhood is very safe, appliances (including temperature control) worked well, and the kitchen was appointed with everything we needed, including sugar, sweeteners and tea.

I noticed someone else mentioned a dead cockroach in their review. We live in the South... we have bugs here. It is NOT an indication of cleanliness. The apartment was very clean. A dead bug means the pest control is working... that's a good thing. It just happens from time to time.

There is some street noise from the streetcar that can be heard in the front bedroom, but nothing horrendous... it's city living after all. Simply put your light sleepers in one of the back bedrooms.

All in all, this is a great property, especially for the price during Mardi Gras. We were all very happy with the location and the ability to ride the streetcar to the parades on St. Charles. I would recommend it!

Jazz Fest

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 11, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
Myself and 4 friends stayed here during the 2012 Jazz Fest - The newly renovated apartment exceeded our expectations in location and setup.

The bed's are comfortable and easily sleeps up to 6. All the amenities were suitable with a large kitchen in the lounge room, two bathrooms and air conditioning (which was a god send in the humid weather!).

It is located right near a park and two block walk to the nearest supermarket. Right next to the cablecar but we mostly caught taxi's in and out of the city to the French Quarter or to the Festival Grounds.

Lenora is always quick to respond and very helpful. Look forward to staying here again in the future!
