We loved La Boheme!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first real VRBO experience and it was great! The owner was very kind and supportive of any of our needs. Richard is a very interesting person and we spent time learning about his history and the history of his property and his pets. What a story! His property is also filled with very lovely photos, paintings and artwork throughout the entire place that bring a personal touch that I did not expect. We loved the neighborhood and felt very safe there. Would definitely recommend, but it is not the place for someone looking for a sterile modern environment. Very eclectic and stylish!

Bohemian jewel in the Bywater

  • 5 of 5

La Boheme is a really lovely home with a classy but very warm and welcoming vibe. I could not have picked a better place to stay! The owner, Richard, and his 2 dogs are (his apartment is next door). The apartment has gorgeous wood ceiling beams and wood doors, a side porch, high ceilings, and other architectural features. The art and furnishings are carefully chosen and give real warmth and character to the place. We felt spoiled to have this amount of space for 2 people, each wirh our private bathrooms- this was a real value! The neighborhood was quiet and cute. We walked to a couple really fantastic restaurants. I would totally recommend this place to anyone- and wiuld stay there again if i could. Richard could not have been nicer.

Nice location in the Bywater

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at La Boheme. Richard greeted us upon arrival and had OJ and bagels waiting for us in the fridge. Loved the dogs. The house has plenty of room, but, honestly, we didn't spend much time inside. There is a great front porch to hang out on and that's where we spent our time when we were at the house. It is super close to a few bars, restaurants and a convenience store. A pleasant walk to Frenchmen Street and the Quarter and a very cheap cab ride if you don't feel like walking. Only a couple of blocks to the Crescent Park river walk, which is beautiful. If you want an antiseptically clean hotel room, this is not for you. But, if you want to enjoy the feel of a real New Orleans neighborhood, you can't beat it for the price! We had a great time. Thanks Richard!

Just right for our group

  • 5 of 5

A nice front porch to hang out on and the rooms are large and well furnished. Having two bathrooms was nice, too. The location is convenient to a coffee shop, bars, restaurants and a convenience store. We took the Crescent Park river walk one day and just navigated the streets the rest of the time. Either way, it is an easy walk to Frenchmen Street and the Quarter. The dogs, Flora and Tommy, were the selling point for my daughter and cousin. :)

If you are looking for a new, antiseptically clean hotel room, this is not for you. But, if you want to stay in an actual neighborhood in a house with some character, this is a good choice. For the price, you are not going to get more space and privacy.

Enjoyable stay

  • 3 of 5

We arrived and were greeted by Richard and Michael who assisted with unloading our luggage and taking it into the appartment. Four of us stayed for 6 days. Plenty of room, adequate kitchen utensils for eating in. Enjoyed staying outside of the French Quarter, with an easy drive to sites we wanted to see.

Restaurants close to the house are available, especially "The Joint" barbecue eatery at the end of the street, and the country club 3 houses down the street. Adequate parking for our vehicle. A notebook with highlights to see in the area is provided.

Loved their dogs, they came and visited us often. Would stay again if we visit New Orleans. Thank you Richard and Michael.
