I stayed here for a week and couldn't possibly have found a better place. As others have said in previous reviews, the photos don't do this place justice! It was so spacious, clean, and cozy! The artwork and decor were gorgeous, too, and really added to the feel of it being a very special place. A lot of love and care has gone into this unit and I'm so lucky it is the one we chose to stay in.
Ron and Mark are truly lovely people. They were so kind and helpful and never intrusive. There were two vegetarians in our group of three and they not only gave us some excellent recommendations of where to eat (Mona's on Frenchmen hit the spot!), but they even brought over some homemade veggie ratatouille (which this meat-eater ate a large portion of!). How sweet is that? They greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a nice tour of the home and answered every possible question we might have had and made themselves available to us if we had any more. Of all the rentals I've stayed in over the years (there have been quite a few), Ron and Mark were by far the most gracious, kind, helpful, and hospitable. I loved those guys!
Everything was perfect. I didn't think I would make use of a hot tub, but let me tell you, after a day of walking what felt like miles, soaking in that tub made all the difference in the world. It was so relaxing and such a beautiful oasis to do it in, too. I already miss it.
The location was ideal, too. When I visit New Orleans, I spend a lot of time on Frenchmen St. We were literally a few blocks away. The French Quarter was just a few blocks away, too. We walked just about everywhere; Armstrong Park, the French Quarter, Frenchmen St, Cafe du Monde, etc. Everything was so easily accessible. I think we only took a cab once when going to the Garden District at night. This is a great location for folks who like to be near all the action but not right up in it. The unit is very quiet and peaceful so when it's time for bed, there will be no distractions.
There aren't enough superlatives to describe this lovely rental or Ron and Mark. I will always remember their kindness and graciousness and am grateful to have had the opportunity to vacation in their absolutely beautiful rental. Thank you, Ron and Mark, for everything!
