Why Myrtle-Rose Greene chose Uptown and Carrolton District
I moved to New Orleans in 2008 for my job. I looked everywhere in the city for a place to stay. I knew that I loved the New Orleans courtyards and that I wanted to be in the city and close to the action. After looking up and down St Charles Ave, I still hadn't found THE place - you know, the place you fall in love with immediately. And I found that as I got further and further Uptown, it was quite a long distance from the French Quarter and Downtown CBD. But one day, I was driving with my mother to the top of St Charles and we decided to continue onto Carrollton Ave. And that's when we found it! I immediately fell in love with the house, the courtyard and the balcony. Being a big cook, I loved the spacious kitchen. The house, even though it was modern, had an Old New Orleans feel that I loved. And to top it off, while I was extremely close to Uptown and the Garden District, I was also very close to I-10 and could easily get to downtown and the French Quarter! The rest, as they say, was history! I know that you will fall in love with this property (just like we did) and I also know that you will want to return again and again to “Make Our Home Yours”!

Beautiful home, but plumbing issues impacted our stay
We arrived on Friday around 4:00pm the house is spacious & lovely. There's only room for 1 vehicle, 2 if you don't close the gate, so you have to park across the street. The furniture & bedding are dated/old but it goes with the old feel of the house. There is a stale smell but some air fresheners will fix that. Saturday morning we ran into some issues, the half bath downstairs overflowed & flooded the bathroom, kitchen, & den. We used towels & blankets to soak up the water. I contacted the lady listed as the contact & she said she'd come check it out when she was done with the other properties. Around 7:00pm, I got a called that they couldn't get a plumber & to not use that bathroom, fine or so we thought. We arrived back at the townhouse around 9:30pm & start to take showers, that's when the real issues started. The plumbing in the house was COMPLETELY backed up. When one of us attempted to shower in the hall bathroom on the 2nd floor it flood the living room, the water poured from the ceiling like a waterfall, all over the floor. I called the owner & she told us not to use that restroom either. So we tried the bathroom in the master bedroom. That one made the toilet in the half bathroom downstairs overflow, so we had to put down blankets & towels to stop the water again. So we couldn't shower, we could only wash up" in the sink. We purchased tickets to an event so we did what we had to do. Sunday morning the owner came over, at around 7a.m. to wait for the plumber & she used the restroom upstairs & flooded the downstairs floor...again. So long story short none of the 8 people who stayed there could shower or use the restroom on Sunday morning, so we had to end our trip early & start our 8 hour drives home to Dallas, Texas. It was during Essence Music Festival weekend so we still had plans to go do more activities, but we couldn't. Honestly the owner did seem to compassionate about how it impacted our stay, due to the costs she was about to incur because of the serious plumbing ussues. She only offered us a discount for our troubles after I suggested it. She gave us a 10% discount on one nights stay for our troubles of not having access to water or toilets for almost 24 hours. Our refundable deposit was refunded in full, we did cleaned. I'd say it's worth the price once the repairs are done, but for our experience it wasn't. We understand the issues were beyond her control, but she just didn't seem too concerned about the impact on our weekend
Good for our large family
We had a very nice time in New Orleans. The house was close enough to the tourist attractions without having to be in them. We had a couple of issues with the house, but they were taken care of right away.
Lovely and spacious house
Great location if you want to enjoy a lovely neighborhood with lots of great local hangouts.
Great stay in NOLA
We three couples had a very enjoyable experience. The location was really good. It was very spacious. owner and caretaker were both very responsive. Comfortable beds. A real home away.
Pictures do not do it justice
This place is beautiful, well-located, and a joy to stay in. The pictures do not do it justice.
Great weekend getaway!
We LOVED staying here. The neighborhood is wonderful and seemed very safe, we were able to run in the mornings and the house is a short walk to the streetcar. We had plenty of room in the house and check in and out was super easy. We took an Uber/Lyft to the French Quarter which was about a 10-12 dollar ride each way. Communication with the owners was also very pleasant. We would most definitely stay here again.

The origin of Jazz, New Orlean's music culture is alive and well today, with live music in every corner. And it's not just jazz that you'll find in this city: blues, funk, rock and hip-hop and many more feature.
