We had the most incredible time in NOLA! Such a charming house that was fit to accommodate a large group. Highly recommend this home if visiting New Orleans!

Loved this house

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house it worked out perfectly for us.There were 8 including my grandson who was 16months old. He loved the porch and yard. The air conditioning was wonderful. The house was clean, the beds were comfy and everything including the washer and dryer were so nice to have for a large family gathering. We cooked some times and the big table was a bonus so we could all be together but excape each other in our bedrooms. Location was great quick to Magazine street and close to the street car. Its probably a good 45min to Canal street but it was fun going back and forth on the street car. We did in the evening take Uber. If I ever get to come back I would stay here again and I would recommend it to everyone. The owners live below and were helpful but not in your way. We did have some problem for an afternoon with the internet but we left the next morning so we didn't worry. Only complaint would be the early 10am check out time. I understand they need to clean but wow thats hard to get up and get that many people up and out that early. But we did it!!! Our flights weren't until 6pm so we had to take our luggage to a friends hotel and then we just hung out. But the house is worth evey penny and it worked perfectly for us.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time at our home. We would have given you a late check out if you had requested it. There must have been a lot of traffic on the street car line because we are only 3 miles away from Canal street. It would be a pleasure to have you back.

Great Experience, would use again.

  • 5 of 5

This is a large and well laid out home. We brought a group here for a short bachelor party, and the place was everything we were hoping for. It's in a great part of New Orleans on its own, and not far from anything you might be into doing. Communication with the owners via email brought a quick response. We tried to take good care of it in our brief time, and the owners didn't play games with our security deposit. So, pretty much a win on all fronts.

Couldn't be happier

  • 5 of 5

Spent an amazing girls bachelorette weekend based out of the top floor unit of the Napoleon house. It makes an amazing first impression - it was incredibly spacious. High ceilings, an upgraded kitchen, antique touches (like stained glass) and massive bathrooms perfect for a large group of ladies! It was the perfect home base to spend a weekend celebrating my sister. The location was great - a short cab to the French Quarter and our group spent a lot of time wandering all the great shops and restaurants on Magazine Street. We took a random turn off Magazine and discovered NOLA brewing on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The dining room was perfect for the whole group of 10 to sit down for gift giving and drinks. Thank you so much to Liz and Mary for their hospitality and the handwritten note thanking us for our stay. Great service, great hosts, don't hesitate- book this place!

Wonderful Historic Home. Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of ten stayed at the house over the holidays. It was perfect for us. Plenty of room for everyone. It was an unusually warm Christmas and we were able to take advantage of the large front porch. The location was perfect. It's just a couple of blocks from the streetcar for access to the quarter. Magazine street is just a block away with great shops and restaurants. This is a great location if you want to do more walking than driving. The owners were very helpful throughout the whole process. Love this place!

The Napoleon House is AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 20 stayed for my brother’s 30 birthday in September. We rented both the upstairs and downstairs units of The Napoleon House. The house is beautiful and very spacious for 20 people to stay. Every couple basically had their own room and the rooms were very spacious. Check-in and check-out was very easy. My family also loved that the owners gave a little background story of the house too!! Perfect house for a large group to stay together!! We LOVED it!!

Location is perfect!! Just a two minute walk to the Streetcar which makes getting to the Quarter very easy. Definitely would stay here again!!
