Charming House and Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This charming place was perfect for our group. We loved sitting on the sunny porch while we drank our coffee from the new French Truck coffe house across the street. The place felt very honey and each side had a nice sitting area for relaxing. It really felt like we were in a neighborhood yet there were great restaurants on the block. Would stay there again!!

Perfectly Located Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect location for visiting with family and enjoying the area. Walkable neighborhood and convenient to the trolley on St Charles. The home has a nicely equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and a great front porch for relaxing. If you're not familiar with a "shotgun" style house note that you must walk through the bedrooms to get to the kitchen in the back of the house. But this was not a problem and actually contributed to the uniqueness of our visit to New Orleans. We will stay again if we have the opportunity.

Wonderful Uptown Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful, historic home for the fourth time, from February 11-17, 2016. As always, it's a great place to stay. We love being able to walk across the street to Charlie's Steakhouse; one block toward Napoleon to Pascal Manales', and one block the other way to Il Posto.

It's great to relax on the porch listening to the fountain next door. Mr. Okra even drove by the house while we were on the porch, so it was nice to see (and hear) a local legend.

We plan to return in 2017.

Excellent stay is this fabulous historical home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in this historical home (we rented both properties) and the owner was fabulous to work with and the home was fabulous and the location perfect! You can walk to the street car and several restaurants. I would highly recommend this lovely home to anyone and the area is very safe. We traveled with six adults and one dog and they even had a pet sitter card in the house of someone to walk the dog, etc. No detail was missed! Thank you for sharing your home in a fabulous location!
