Security Deposit

I might be more interested in writing a review once I get my security deposit refund.

Owner's Response: Deposits are automatically returned by VRBO on the 14th day of departure. Deposits are held by VRBO, so I am not in receipt of it unless there is any damage or fees that need to be paid. There were no damages or fees that needed to be deducted from Creston's deposit so she received her money back in full. I am not certain why a 3 star was offered. Upon receipt of the review, I did reach out to Creston to see if they would come back and update her review, but did not hear back.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay in New Orleans. Quiet and safe neighborhood with plenty of shopping and great restaurants within walking distance. The French Quarter is a nightmare for trying to park your car; and the Napoleon House is the perfect solution to this. The St Charles streetcar is a 5 min walk from the Napoleon House and is extremely cheap. Park your car at the house and take the scenic streetcar into the French Quarter. The house itself is beautiful, well appointed, and very clean. We very much enjoyed our stay here while visiting NOLA!

Perfect, Quiet Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Liz and MJ made the stay so easy! Even with our late plans and late arrival they made the process so smooth. It's a great unit with a nice bed and two fold-outs. The back balcony and patio are a nice touch and a fun place to wind down the night. The neighborhood is super safe and the house is right along the Mardi Gras parade route. No trouble parking our car either. It's about a 5 min walk to the streetcar and a 30-45 min beautiful ride through the Garden District to Canal Street and the French quarter. Some wonderful restaurants and coffee shops nearby too. Can't begin to say how easy and welcoming they made our first homeaway experience. Thanks!!

We had enjoyed our stay at The Napoleon House! It was very clean and in a great location to ride the Street Car or take a walk along Magazine! Looking forward to visiting NOLA again and would love to stay at Napoleon again.

Why Mary Jean Davies chose Central City/Garden District

I love the Uptown area; it's a place where I grew up in the Big Easy. The area has such charm and history that browsing the neighborhoods never gets old and I always find something new each time.

What makes this condo unique

The community rates restaurants each year and all the #1 & #2 chosen for best food is all within walking distance of the Napoleon House. You can find those top restaurants mostly on Magazine Street and some on St. Charles Avenue and Napoleon. Available transportation is either right in front of the house, or at nearby corners which makes getting around so easy. A car is not needed so why fight for parking and possibly end up getting a ticket. Take the streetcar, enjoy the view and let your cares fade away.
