Why Chris chose Uptown
You will be so close to the street car, and just minutes away in an Uber, making Bourbon street nightlife accessible, but yet not inescapable. This location is perfect, being between Audubon park, the Magazine street area and Downtown, you will be close to so many of the best local restaurants. You can get a taste of every aspect of the city that make New Orleans so special : restaurants, cocktails, music, architecture, shopping, attractions and so much more!

Large house for a big group
The rooms were bigger than I thought based on the photos. It was perfect for our larger group
Great home, great stay!
We have rented many properties through VRBO or Homeaway and the likes before, so we 've seen it all. This property was nice for our friends weekend in New Orleans. We had plenty of room to spread out and the location was just a few minutes from Freret street, which has tons of restaurants, and bars. We also were just far enough from Downtown not to be in a constant touristy area, and close enough that it only took 15 min. to get there. We just loved the location as it was a true New Orleans neighborhood! And not a touristy place. We were 3 blocks from Historic and beautiful St Charles avenue and its trolley! The houses in this neighborhood were just gorgeous and people were very nice. We were just a few blocks away from a small supermarket, which made it easy for runs for beverages and breakfast food. The owners were also great to deal with. They were very accommodating and let us check in much earlier than our designated time, they also gave us great recommendations for restaurants, activities , bars and much more, they even gave us some of their tickets to go to the Audubon Zoo, which was really cool to see! The owner also cooked a pot of Red beans and Rice for our group. It was delicious and much appreciated the night of our arrival, when everybody was tired and hungry! Thanks again for the great times Chris! See you again soon.
You could probably find somewhere better, but this is fine in a pinch
Overall, the experience was average. I've rented many homes on VRBO and Airbnb in the past, but this experience was particularly lackluster. The house is as described. The neighborhood is good. It's quiet but walking distance to a hip little strip and and a 20 minute drive to the French Quarter. The number of rooms and beds available are exactly as described on the listing.
However, it should be noted that house is a duplex. 13 people in a living room is noisy regardless of how mindful they are. Add in the fact that we're in New Orleans, and let's be real, there will be some drinking- it's loud. We're a group of 30-somethings, so we've toned down a bit from our more rowdy days. But we were still asked to quiet down on Friday and Saturday nights. I chose to rent a house because I knew we'd be loud. I would likely have rented elsewhere if I knew this was a duplex.
In addition, we had some issues with the house and communication with Chris. I messaged him a few times prior to our arrival, and I felt like I was bothering him. For example, he didn't know the answer to my question of, "are their toiletries in the house?" (There are).
When we arrived, the code didn't work to get into the house. The neighbor let us in. I called Chris, but his answer wasn't clear to me how it was going to be fixed. About an hour after, I texted him telling him we fixed it ourselves.
In addition, the fridge was broken the entire time. We learned this about 5 hours into our stay, and I texted Chris immediately. He told me that it had been broken before, but that he thought the repairman fixed it. My friend is diabetic and carries insulin, so we had to find a workaround for that. We also had to throw out all of the food that we brought that wasn't eaten the first day. Chris never offered an apology or any kind of fix (coolers, a credit, etc.). This could have been a huge problem if we planned to cook all our food.
There are many chores to be done when you leave including stripping the bed, taking out all garbages, cleaning out (broken) fridge, etc. There's also a fee list on the closing details telling you what happens if you miss something. That seemed really condescending and left me with a bitter taste in my mouth. I did receive my full deposit back. But I waited until I got it to write this review.
To sum up, I would try to find a different place if I were you. But if you can't, I think it's fine in a pinch.
Centrally located older home that was comfortable for our group
The property is centrally located. The house comfortably slept our group of 12. The kitchen is adequate, but who cooks when in NOLA. The bed rooms were well apportioned, water pressure in the showers excellent. The furnishings are bit dated but comfortable. The house served its purpose well for our team of 12.
Very nice home
14 of my friends came to attend my 40th Birthday party.... I was looking for a safe and nice place for them... Everything was very nice and not far away.
Chris made the process very easy.....
We come to the city frequently and have stayed at this property a few times now. Really like the location of this property being close to street car line and would recommend it to anyone. We have a large family and the large number of beds makes everyone comfortable. Its set up well because we go with our adult children and grandchildren. The master bedroom upstairs and the bedroom downstairs are private bedrooms (1 king or queen per room), which works for the couples. They have offstreet parking available (although we don't usually need to bring a car). Chris is also a great cook and makes us a pot of redbeans every time we come back which is a definite plus!
