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

  • 5 of 5

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

An awesome stay in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and two friends had a great stay here. I would definitely go back to this house because of the look and feel of the home, the location and restaurant.

This was my first time renting a house and I'm so happy it went so well. The house was very pretty and safe. Across the street there is Katie's which was an awesome restaurant. Went for dinner on Saturday and had to go back for brunch on Sunday. It's popular so expect a wait for brunch, but no worries, put your name down while you finish getting ready since you are just a few steps away. The neighbors were very pleasant. The apartment creeks but It didn't bother us much. The bathroom was very well stocked with paper and towels. The place was very peaceful, which was a nice change in comparison to the busy French quarter. You walk to the corner and cross the street for the street car, which is very convenient and perfect distance where you don't hear it passing.

Jazz Fest Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

The Trolley Stop was the perfect house for our stay during Jazz Fest. Very clean, easy to hop on the trolley, great breakfast spot down the street and we could walk to the fairgrounds. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to visit New Orleans looking for a quieter place to stay but still close to everything!

Car: not necessary

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.
