We (three 60ish year old couples) recently had a very nice 3 night stay here in February 2019.
Jim, the onsite owner, was a pleasure to deal with and was quick to provide us with anything we needed. The house is located in a nice quiet older neighborhood about 10 blocks north east of Frenchman St and 1.7 miles from the north edge of the French Quarter. We walked to the French quarter and back along the river walk during the day and took Uber during the night. Uber rides cost us around $10 each way. There are several local pubs and coffee shops within a few blocks of the house which was nice.
The house itself is unique as many of the older New Orleans Shot Gun houses are where the bedrooms flow through one another. This style of house has plenty of local charm but understand that there is limited privacy in the design if that is a concern to you which it wasn’t for us. The house was clean and well-kept with a smaller kitchen and 2 indoor bathrooms and 3rd bathroom located outside in the patio area. The highlight of this property is the large games room in the back yard, separate from the house, which has a nice large table, couches, a big screen TV, pool table, darts board, Bluetooth sound bar and fridge and bar area. This is where we ate breakfast every morning as the kitchen doesn’t really accommodate 6 people to sit and eat comfortably. There is also a screened in porch and an outdoor deck area which is nice. There’s also a small BBQ which we used one night and a hot tub in the back yard.
Great on site host
New Orleans local style house
Awesome games room and deck area
Smaller kitchen (if you plan on cooking a lot of meals)
Walk through bedrooms which have limited privacy if you are more than 6 people
Overall we had a great stay here and Jim was a great host and he will do whatever he can to make your stay a memorable one. The location is very good as were the rental rates. We would definitely stay here again on a return visit. Cheers Jim and thanks for everything.
We enjoyed our stay. The owner, Joe, was extremely nice. There were 3 couples and we had ample room. Everyone in the neighborhood was extremely friendly. It was a easy walk to public transportation. The only complaint we had was the beds were not real comfortable.
