About Jennifer Smiley

I am a native of New Orleans and absolutely love this part of town. This was our starter home but have outgrown it with kids. This house allows me to wake up in the morning and get a coffee next door then go work-out at the pilates studio or just walk the strip. An Uptown Paradise Stay!

Jennifer Smiley purchased this house in 2010

Why Jennifer Smiley chose New Orleans

Really you have got to see the location and experience the locals walking around everyday. The house was renovated completely in 2010 and is top-notch everything. We built this house to start our family and then to one day rent it out full time. It is a charming house for its location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed staying at the Smiley's VRBO home for a second time. It is so comfortable and clean, it adds to the pleasure of our visits in New Orleans. The location is excellent for us. Jennifer Smiley is very accommodating when possible. She gives hospitality a great name. HL - Charleston, SC

Comfortable and Classy!

  • 5 of 5

Great location in Uptown New Orleans! Walking distance to the best boiled crawfish (Frankie and Johnny's). The house has a true "home away from home" feeling. The owner's personal touches are tasteful and "local". Everything from linens to lighting are first-class. Owner left reliably good recommendations for local attractions and eateries. This family of eight LOVED our stay :) Perfect size for us. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in NOLA.

Perfect home in Uptown!

  • 5 of 5

This house could not have been better it made our vacation in New Orleans a perfect trip! The location was exceptional, 10 steps to magazine street and plenty of places to get your morning coffee, yummy baked goods, or anything else you might get a hankering for as Whole Foods was a 3 min walk. Very clean and updated with the latest furnishings and a full kitchen so you can prepare your own meals if you want. The parking right next to the home was perfect. Thanks for sharing your home with us weary travelers, it was so nice to come home to after a bustling day in New Orleans.

Great family trip to New Orleans!

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly what we were looking at for our family of six (three college age and one teenager). The home was extremely clean, comfortable and stocked with all the necessities The neighborhood was beautiful and was in the perfect location for long walks down Magazine for shopping and eating. A short walk to Audubon Park and the St. Charles street car was also nice. I would say the parking off street for two vehicles was a big plus as the area gets very busy especially on the weekends. I've already sent links to my family and friends for any future stays in New Orleans. The booking process with Jen was easy and her responses were very quick. We would book this property again without looking anywhere else!

The best of NOLA

  • 5 of 5

The best of the best. Rental was great, plenty of room for all of us and my grandson loved all of the toys and his own room. Will be returning in Sept for my daughters wedding and hope to get this rental. The only draw back for me was the doors in the bathroom from the bedroom were see thru. Purchased some circulars from whole foods and taped paper on glass for privacy. Also needed a non stick pan for cooking eggs and what not, other than that we all loved the property and the location.
