Lovely historic shotgun house
Great place to stay. The decorating was really nice with vibrant colors and artwork that reflected New Orleans. It managed to reflect the history of the building which is old (there were 4 awesome fireplaces), but still have all the modern amenities of today. Wonderful location, near the streetcar and so many good places nearby to eat. The kitchen was well stocked with nice dishes, pots/pans, etc. There were only 2 of us, so we used 1 bedroom to sleep and the other to keep our clothes and other possessions. The neighborhood seemed very safe and friendly. We love New Orleans and would definitely stay here again.
Thanks so much for coming Julie!
It was great having you and would love to have you back! You are correct about the restaurants nearby....there are so many to choose from and having the streetcar 1/2 block away is a great plus!
Clean and comfortable.
Love the classic shotgun style house. We use the streetcars for everything when we visit and it was great being so close to a stop. Great jazz fest rental. We would absolutely stay here again.
Thanks so much Nic! I'm glad you enjoyed it and I hope to have you back again!
Comfortable home in great location
The house was very nice and the furnishings were very comfortable. It is in a great location with restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. Very quiet and peaceful area.
As a Five-star host for 5 vacation rentals I am sorry to report our extreme disappointment at the"Trolly Stop".
After a two-day drive to New Orleans, plus a courtesy phone call to the host confirming our check in time, we arrived to find the house filthy. Prior occupants vacated and left a mess. Disgusted and depressed, it took three phone calls to be promised a cleaning. Exhausted, we finally settled in at 10pm with no mattress cover on one bed, one milk crate served as a table, another milk crate supported a broken bed rail and the front door lock was less than inadequate for security. The furniture was so dirty we placed a cover over it. It took a week to get the TV fixed and internet working occasionally. The Jazz Festival was close and the corner restaurant was fantastic. Rather than feeling hosted, we felt duped.
Adorable home in a great location
What a great experience to stay in a traditional New Orleans Shotgun house. This house is decorated so cute and the location couldn't be better. We walked to the corner and caught the streetcar to go downtown/French Quarter daily. Walked a half block to Katie's restaurant or a block to Liuzza's or a block in the other direction to Mandina's......all fabulous New Orleans local digs! Just Fantastiv
Easy as Crawfish Pie
Location was great. House was great. Shower was the best! Entry into the home was easy and the neighbors were friendly. We loved it.
Tons of Restaurants within a 6 block radius (walking distance). Downtown/CBD/French Quarter is a 15 minute streetcar ride away. Easy access to all parts of the city. Great nightlife, shopping and tourist attractions. Wonderful architecture and sightseeing activities.
