Wonderful time in New Orleans
Safe place with great gated parking off the street, not offered by many places. Neighborhood is great with easy safe walking distance to Jackson Square, French Market and more. Will positively stay their here again
They were a great couple and we really enjoyed having them as guests. They treated our Riverboat Suite as if it were their own. We have had many guests over the past 40+ years and they rate in the top and were very personable and very intelligent. We sincerely hope they will come back again.
Fron the moment we turned the key, I was enchanted. I cannot think of a better place to spend my 50th birthday. Our hosts were knowledgeable and engaging. We felt welcomed from the very first moment. They shared their favorite haunts and a bit of New Orleans lore giving us an insiders experience to the city. The flat was in a word, stunning, with beautiful antiques and all the amenities a person could want.
My guests are world travelers and were both fascinating and charming. They need to write a book of their travels and I hope they don’t leave our chapter out They were so well versed in the best places to go, art, and music that we were appreciative of every opportunity we had to chat with them. We hope they will come back again. Pat and Greg
Great place to stay in the French Quarter.
This property has two rental units - we stayed in the upstairs Riverboat Suite. The downstairs unit had a king size bed and more modern bathroom, but the upstairs had more light, a very nice living room with an original brick wall and a balcony. So, even though the upstairs unit has a queen size bed, we preferred it in total although both are nice. This is a 200 year old building but all modern conveniences worked well - both heating and air conditioning functioned, the shower was great and the kitchen was nicely equipped. The owners live on site and are long term residents who know every inch of the French Quarter and the city. They are very friendly but respectful of your privacy and offered great advice on restaurants and destinations. The building has a secure street entrance and we walked the area for a week without any safety concerns. It's two blocks from Bourbon Street but on the quieter end of the Quarter and this particular street is quiet in general. Uber worked wonderfully when needed and all of our drivers were experienced but its easiest to navigate the Quarter on foot if your health permits. There are too many great restaurants to make specific recommendations here. However, I will mention that National World War II museum nearby is riveting. If you go there, book entry online in advance to get access to the movie that provides perspective on what you will see in the museum. It was a great vacation for us and staying in the French Quarter at this particular venue is highly recommended.
Amazing Authentic Accomodations in the French Quarter!
The location of this property could not be better! It is located on a residential street approximately two blocks from the quiet end of Bourbon Street. What makes the property location ideal is that you are halfway between Jackson Square and Frenchmen Street.
You enter the property into a very large courtyard area. The rear of the courtyard has parking. The courtyard itself, is very private and beautifully landscaped with differ flora. It is quiet, shaded and relaxing.
The units are HUGE especially when comparing to other FQ accomodations. There are two rental properties available -each has it's own character. Each unit is beautifully decorated, with antiques, and are very clean. We stayed in the upper unit -it had a very large bedroom, living room, kitchen and eating area -I would estimate that each unit around 900 square feet. There are two flat screen TVs, WIFI, and a laptop for guests use in each rental. We traveled with another couple who rented the lower unit. They loved the "authenticity" and character that was proudly on display by this property. It was an absolutely perfect set up -we could mingle together in the courtyard and then retire to our private lodging.
I do not know enough words to describe hospitality, thoughtfulness and welcoming manner of the owners of this property! Upon arrival, Pat gave us a tour of the property She offered wonderful suggestions of where to go and what to do. Her husband Greg, born and raised in LA, shared wonderful stories and even offered to drive us (late at night) to Frenchmen Street. Upon arrival, each unit contained a bottle of wine, cheese and crackers, grapes and other "munchies." Although this property, in itself is amazing, the owners put it OVER THE TOP! We were even given parting gifts! WE LOVE THESE PEOPLE!!!
I am sad that I missed the "midnight" tour but I will definitely be back for it!

Clean, Vintage, Well Kept and secure. Great attention to detail
Pat and Greg were wonderful hosts. They have a wealth of knowledge of the area and very accommodating. Just wonderful people! The property was clean and very well updated. It was very secure yet easy to enter and leave at will and it was quiet unlike Bourbon St. It is only a 10 minute walk from Bourbon St and less than a five minute walk from the trolley car. It's quicker to walk though, the trolley system can be slow. Thanks Pat and Greg!
Wonderful location in the heart of the French Quarter!!!
My girlfriend and I were looking to take a quick weekend trip and this worked out perfectly.
Pat met us at the front and showed us around and even offered to make us breakfast in the morning.
We loved the suite, the courtyard and rooms themselves were very nice and clean. They were first built back in 1809, filled with history...
We thought the location was perfect as Jackson square was minutes away, as were bourbon and royal streets. But being on the east side of them it also was a few minute walk to Frenchmen street, where there’s plenty of jazz and other music to enjoy...which we definitely did.
I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone. Thanks Pat!!!
The Bougainvillea House is located in the residential section of the French Quarter on Gov. Nicholls between Burgundy and Dauphine Streets.
