Guestbook comments from the owner

Herb's Home was perfect for our NOLA vacation. The house is located in a picturesque New Orleans neighborhood walking distance to most places, including restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops AND just a 5 min. walk to Jazz Fest which was amazing to be so close to all of the action. We took short taxi's rides to all of our favorite Music Halls, hung out in the back yard and really enjoyed the place!!! Getting to know Herb was awesome too, he knows everything about the city and it was really helpful to have some local advice.

Most amazing host and property!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived Herb made us feel as if we were there visiting a fried. The apartmemt has all of the amenities you could ever think of (fully stocked kitchen, more towels than you would ever need, great working AC and even fruits and bottles of water). The apt was super clean, a very short ride to French Quarter and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. Staying with Herb was the best decision we made for our trip to NOLA and we will for sure return. If you get a chance to sit down with Herb for a history lesson, you won't be disappointed. Herb, thank for your attentiveness and treating us like family!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Great property and location! Herb was very helpful and we loved everything about the property. $7 Uber gets you to Bourbon Street. The backyard is relaxing and the swing was nice with a cup of coffee. Plan on coming back in August and hope we can stay here.

Nice part of town

  • 5 of 5

I've been to NOL a few time since and there are some shady parts. This location was good and we had a bus stop one block away. Shotgun style of effenciency with a tub deep enough to be able to really relax. This place is high on our list the next time we return.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Everything had been thought of to make our stay in the apartment perfect. Location so good to get into the French Quarter, it is walking distance to a choice of eating​ places and a well stocked grocery. A beautiful area to walk around and take in the atmosphere. Would recommend it to anyone.

French Quarter Fest Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome accommodations, perfect location and fabulous host. Herb was more than generous and accommodating. Easy access to public transportation and conveniently located to walk to most anywhere. Extra large studio and outdoor gardens were a plus. Thank you Herb for a wonderful week!
