About Kate

We were so lucky to buy this home in the Bayou St. John neighborhood with our friends John and Debra, who live in Ohio. We have done significant renovations to the house that makes it such a comfortable and pleasant place to stay.

Kate purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Kate chose New Orleans

Bayou St. John is one of the most popular neighborhoods in New Orleans. Everyone wants to live here. We know you will agree after you have stayed with us.

What makes this apartment unique

We enjoy sitting on the porch and enjoying the neighborhood atmosphere. Since there are so many choices of restaurants and things to do, we rarely have to get in the car to go anywhere. If we do go to the quarter or downtown restaurants we can easily get a cab for about $15 or take a leisurely ride on the streetcar.

First timers!

We enjoyed our first time visit in New Orleans, and the house was the perfect place for that visit. It's a cozy, clean & cute place located in a nice neighborhood. Definitely would visit again.

FEST NEST IS THE BEST!!!

  • 5 of 5

Aptly named, this apt is safe, cozy and convenient; it has all the amenities of home plus thick, plush towels and fine bedding you would find in a posh hotel! It is tastefully decorated with Jazz Festival Art- reflecting the love of the owners. Kate and Bill are friendly, accommodating, easy to contact and they keep the apt. spotless and inviting. The shotgun porch neighbor is friendly and full of info about NOLA and there are pamphlets and tour books in the living room to give info about sights, events, transportation, and adventures. The neighborhood is great for walking and has history and food and drinks available if you want to hang close and relax and is close to public transportation to other areas of the city- the BEST of both worlds. Thank you sooo much for sharing your awesome place! We know we want to come back to the BIG EASY FEST NEST again!!

Best Experience Ever!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to begin. The house is absolutely beautifully decorated. Everything was clean and just gorgeous!

Our neighbor, Kevin, is the nephew of the owner and was amazingly helpful. Due to a previously sustained injury, I was unable to walk the Quarter but Kevin made us aware of so many things to do in the area and I still was able to experience the magic and beauty of NOLA.

I didn't want to write a review about this property because I don't want to share it. Yes I am selfish.

My husband and I will come back again and again and again because Kate and Kevin make it feel like home.

Perfect! (Aug 10-15th, 2016)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for most a week while wandering around the city, it's location could not have been better! Less than a two minute walk is a little grocery store that had everything we needed, and between the apartment are 3 restaurants. The Half Shell has the most AMAZING seafood gumbo, highly recommended! The neighbor, Kevin, was super hospitipal and gave us great advice on what to see in town and was happy to recommend other restaurants and favorite spots.

Overall there was nothing that we were wanting for, Kate was great about giving us our space and responding to my text messages. Next time we visit NOLA we will certainly stay at the fest nest again!
