Overview

French Quarter Apartment Rental Photos and Description

House, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Authentic, cozy French Quarter Guest House. Opens onto Bourbon street. Sip a Bloody Mary as you sit on the stoop and watch the crowd pass by, or stroll down to the river and enjoy a Muffaletta while watching the sunset - there are hundreds of ways to enjoy the magic and beauty of New Orleans.

This unit is a studio with a queen size loft bed, a sofa bed, a separate bathroom, and a kitchenette (sink, microwave, coffee maker). Linens and towels are provided.

Parking is on street, please be mindful of signs. There is a 2 - hour limit in many roads but also many roads further out with unlimited parking. Plus there are plenty of long and short term parking lots i.e on Rampart Street, on Esplanade and Elysian Fields, to name just two.

When you book this rental, we will email you with our phone #, names of contacts, and the key code to get into the rental a couple of weeks prior to your arrival. If you have questions before booking, you can email - that is the best way to get hold of us before booking. Feel free to email with any questions or correspondence. We will respond promptly.

Our refund policy is that we can usually refund up to 30 days before a reservation. Less than 30 days and we will offer the apartment for rental again, and if we rent it before the reservation date, we will still refund your payment minus a $50 administration charge.

Sorry, no pets allowed.

Compact best position very clean

  • 3 of 5

The studio is compact but functional so long as u dont mind climbing the ladder to bed. Everything is clean and it is only a short walk to the bars and music in bourbon st and frenchmans street. Also not far to the river. Great spot to be. The mattress isnt new but comfortable enough. Air con struggled in the incredible heat but still cool home to return to. Owners very helpful. Would recommend it for the experience. U can sit on the front steps and watch the world go by.

Good value & location- but some annoyances

  • 2 of 5

I'd still recommend this place to stay even though we didn't have a very good experience. When we checked in after 4pm on a Saturday, the place hadn't been cleaned due to a mix up with the housekeeping schedule & it was filthy. We were able to get ahold of the owners, who sent over a cleaner, but the place wasn't ready until 7. Since we'd checked out of a different hotel at 11 that morning, we had been waiting all day for our check in & were very frustrated. The cleaning lady did a good job, but when we stopped by to see if she was done, she had an attitude and was more upset about the inconvenience to her than to us.

Once we finally got checked in, our stay went pretty well. The AC ran non stop but doesn't really keep up with the NOLA heat. The loft bed exposes you to the warmest air in the rental, so we were uncomfortable. The AC unit was very dirty & cleaning may improve its function. I woke up with bug bites both mornings of our stay but can't be sure they were from sleeping there or if I'd been bitten elsewhere & hadn't noticed. We did see some bugs in the rental, but not a lot.

Some other annoyances were no remote for the TV & no switch for the lamp required you to get in & out of that loft bed to turn on or off the TV or lamp. The lamp by the bed required you to have it plugged in or unplugged. A switch on the lamp would be such an easy fix to accommodate guests. The futon is worn out & horribly uncomfortable to sit on so I can't really imagine sleeping on it. There were no notes of any sort to notify us where the extra bedding was found if we wanted to sleep on the futon. The cleaning lady pointed it out to us but it made me wonder how many people had slept (or other things) on the futon without sheets.

The toilet & shower worked fine. The location was great- right on Burbon street but far enough from the noise & craziness. The cleaning lady said Burbon was "Demonic" but we had a good time, regardless. To do over again, I would've paid the extra money to stay at a hotel in the French Quarter and had good AC and a bed that didn't require a ladder, but we still had fun & enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Our sincere apologies that the apartment was not ready when you arrived. This is not the first time recently that our cleaner has let us down, and with your report of her inexcusible attitude, it will be the last time as we cannot employ someone who is not 100 % responsible and pleasant. I am on an emergency visit to my mother in the UK so was unable to step in and take over the mistake this time. Very sorry. Regarding other details you mention: I was not aware that the touch sensitive light fixture no longer worked so we will be able to replace that immediately; We do NOT have bed bugs - I have checked and check for things like that regularly. Bedding is cleaned every visit and our apartments are cleaned well. I myself maintain a thorough spring clean every couple of months to make sure. Also, regarding bugs, it is normal in New Orleans to see the odd bug from time to time as they come in from outside. We have the studios professionally pest controlled every month and we constantly check and maintain this; I know that here IS a remote for the TV but sad to say, it must have been taken recently by whom I do not know. A new one will be supplied asap; I did note the last time I was in this apartment that the futon is not as nice as it used to be. We will be buying a new one asap on my return next week. Once again, so sorry these things weren’t quite up to standard this time. All your points will be addressed for future guests. Thank you for your review as it will help to get things better and better. This has always been a very popular place for travelers who are for the most part very happy with our place and some return again and again.

We LOVED it!

  • 4 of 5

It was the perfect location, we walked everywhere. We loved not having to keep up with a key. Will keep in mind if we ever need to be in NOLA again.

Great Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the French Quarter! The cottage is located in the quieter part of Bourbon street within walking distance of everything! Perfect place to spend a mini vacation! We found a hotel about a mile away that has public parking for about $20/ day- it was perfect! Would highly recommend this location!!

Convenient location, quiet end of Bourbon

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I recently stayed here for five nights while I attended a conference in New Orleans, and we loved it. The size was perfect for the two of us. We enjoyed having our own fridge, microwave and coffeepot to store and eat food on the go. The location was very convenient for me. I could have booked an expensive hotel closer to the Ernest Convention Center but I wanted the opportunity to stay in someplace more homey and closer to the night life. Walking five minutes in one direction will get you to Bourbon Street craziness, and five minutes in the other direction will bring you to amazing music on Frenchman Street. As for getting to my conference, it was only a five minute walk to the Riverwalk streetcar, which I rode ten minutes down the line every day. Despite being a quieter location, there was one incident around 2am one night. We awoke to the outer shutter on the front door being forced open. We contacted the owners first thing in the morning, and by that afternoon they had ensured the shutter was in working condition, showed us how to reinforce it with even more locks and reviewed security footage to see what happened. Turns out it was a skinny, drunk guy who accidentally tried to enter the wrong home (there's similar looking houses in the neighborhood). We really appreciated how fast and how seriously the owners took care of the situation. We highly recommend anyone to stay here. Thank you again!! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you Nicole for your lovely, informative review. And yes, the incident with the man mistaking his location was a good first opportunity for us to use the security camera footage to see what had happened - it was very helpful for us to be able to put your mind at rest as to what was going on. You were lovely guests- you're welcome back anytime!
