A pristine, peaceful, private slice of perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Spending quality time alone here with my spouse was such a wonderful blessing! Please allow us to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the owner for sharing this property. From start to end, Leslie was a dream to work with. She was quick with every response and endlessly patient with my questions. My husband had never done a VRBO stay before so he had concerns about security/safety and general reservations about trying something different. Ultimately, he glanced at a few pics then left the decision to me.

All doubts faded the minute we walked through the door. I watched with delight as the expression on his face confirmed the unit had far exceeded his expectations. Located in one of the safest enclaves within the Garden District, it's spotless and ornately furnished. There are fantastic places to shop and eat within walking distance and we did! We loved every minute of being in the apartment so much that neither of us wanted to leave.

Upon our departure, it was fun to join the rest of my family who arrived in the French Quarter for a family celebration but nearly every night thereafter hubby and I discussed how we were both yearning to be back in the apartment on Magazine sipping our CC's coffee while people watching on the balcony, lounging in the living room listening to jazz and reading our books, floating without a care in the sensational pool or just napping away in those comfy beds.

Furthermore, the water pressure in the bathroom was strong, the kitchen was well stocked although I barely used it and the complimentary rum was a fantastic surprise! Our neighbor downstairs was incredibly gracious and hospitable too, providing assistance as needed with little things (like how to turn on the water feature) but being ever so respectful of our privacy.

Special memories we made during our brief stay in this gorgeous home will be treasured forever and my husband has declared it as the only place he wants to stay when we visit New Orleans in the future. I completely agree. I just hope we'll still be able to find an available week to reserve it after people read this review!

Beautiful home, warm and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 called this place "home for our 6 day stay in New Orleans. The home was beautiful, everything we needed was there (and more). My kids loved the pool and we loved the gardening and landscaping. Like your own private oasis. Great location--the garden district is very walk-able and we took the trolley and/or bus easily with a Jazzy Pass.

We are already taking about returning for Spring break 2018.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This house is pure perfection! Every last detail and amenity are wonderful. Leslie and Jason go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. The house is truly lovely. The furniture and decor is top notch. The beds are uber comfortable. The linens and towels are fluffy and new. The pool is warm and relaxing. Although we didn't cook, the kitchen is large and very well equipped.

The location is ideal - so close to great neighborhood spots (District for donuts, Parasols for po boys, Le Petit Grocery for delicious dinner and Coquette for Sunday brunch fried chicken). It is also a short and inexpensive uber ride to the French Quarter.

If it weren't for our girls, we would have extended this trip indefinitely. We cannot wait to visit Leslie's magnificent home again. We will be back soon!

Beautiful Garden District home with great New Orlean's charm!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great week staying at the Second Floor condo at this beautiful property and Leslie, the owner, was terrific and available if we had any questions. The living space was gorgeous and very well furnished. We used the balconies for coffee in the morning and cocktails at night. The kitchen was great for entertaining. We had several dinner guests during our stay. The pool is nestled between the home and thick hedges, creating a private setting, great for sun bathing and swimming. A block away from Tracy's, a local pub with bar food and fresh oysters. Just a few blocks more to several great restaurants, Basin Seafood, Coquette and great sushi at Sake Café Uptown, to name just a few. A very short Uber ride to the CBD and French Quarter. Terrific stay and we will definitely return next year.

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

The weather was in the 80's so the pool was a wonderful amenity. The house is perfect, well stock, very comfortable, great linens/towels, and beautiful artwork. The balcony that over looks Magazine Street is a wonderful spot for coffee or cocktail. Love the location - can walk to great food, tour amazing homes, and away from the craziness and smells of the French Quarter. A definite gem!!

New Orleans is a phenomenal place to visit. Fabulous food from food trucks to the finest dining in the world, Famous for Jazz but every genre of music is here, art in many forms with multiple museums and many galleries, history and culture abound!
