Charming Space

  • 3 of 5

Overall, I think this unit was charming and trhe host were a class act. I do however believe there was an opportunity for some improvement. The sun porch hasn't been cared for and only need to be power washed and swept. Although the hard wood floors are beautiful, they are wavy and I didn't always feel like they were able to support the weight of two adult men. During the height of the day, the window unit had a hard time holding off the Louisiana heat, and th broken ceiling fan in the bedroom didn't help either. Besides the normal wear and tear you see in a unit, I really liked the Jewel Box, it was decorated well and was on a quiet street in a GREAT area. We brought our pomeranians and felt safe leaving them there while we explored the City. In relation to other units we have stayed, I believe this one was overpriced for the product received.

Fun Location; quaint shotgun

  • 4 of 5

I got a little taste of blending in with the locals in this fun, safe little neighborhood just close enough to downtown. The favorite eating spots of our trip turned out to be right in Carrolton, and within walking distance. The nicely decorated shotgun was comfortable and quiet, and I especially enjoyed having a screened in front porch. The owner was very kind, available, and even left some wine and chocolates for us :)

Nice!

  • 3 of 5

The Jewel Box is close to the streetcar line and excellent restaurants. The apartment is nice but the beds are uncomfortable, expecially the sofa bed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the property but we are sorry to hear that the beds were not as comfortable as you had hoped. *Update* The owner has taken note of the feedback and has ordered a new memory foam mattress for the sofa bed and has also added a new memory foam topper on the queen-sized bed. -The Evolve Team

CUTE BUT NOT A JEWEL BOX!

  • 1 of 5

This was my first experience using VRBO and I was soo excited to see our little Jewel Box which we rented for 2 days. There was no where to park which is typical N.O as we had to park a block away. It took us a few minutes to get inside (better instructions needed to to use the keypad). The house was very tiny but cute and charming. We settled in and proceeded to read the little notebook which others wrote in. A few mentioned how uncomfortable the bed was but it felt fine to me. We left to get supper and came back to eat, as we were eating we noticed several bugs flying around thus landing in our food which then we had to toss. As we opened the trash the most awful smell hit us in the face because it had not been emptied. As I was laying in the bed and my sister was on the couch bed both of us quickly realized the bugs were landing in the beds. HORRIBLE! The beds were like sleeping on bricks, that was the worst bed ever! Some sort of cushion, egg crates, memory foam anything would have been better. (Hopefully you will use my money to purchase these for the next person). We left for our adventurous day and when we arrived back the thought of sleeping on the bed and dealing with the bugs made us pack up and leave thus skipping the second day rental. It was definitely that bad! I did not contact anyone because I'm sure they weren't going to come replace the beds as others had previously complained. Lesson learned...Next time i will pick something with many reviews.

Owner's Response: We are truly sorry to hear about this experience and took your feedback very seriously. The maintenance crew has been notified about the trash situation in order to avoid this issue for future renters. We are also working to clarify the instructions for the keypad to ensure a smoother check-in experience. The owner appreciates the feedback and has purchased a memory foam topper for the bed. It is a high quality mattress but it may be too firm for most people. The owner is also looking into replacing the sleeper sofa! As New Orleans is a city in a semi-tropical climate there is bug activity year round and while measures are taken to mitigate any problems, bugs issues can occasionally occur. Thank you for the feedback and best of luck in your future travels! -The Evolve Team

Charming!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a tiny gem. The Jewel Box is just a couple of blocks from the streetcar line in a safe neighborhood, and a block from excellent restaurants and coffee shops. Charmingly appointed, it makes the most of it's small space. Is is a perfect, hotel-like space? No. This is like staying in a friend's guest house--a friend with perfect taste who knows how to make a guest comfortable and at home. Those who want the cold empty "perfection" of a hotel room should stay in one.

CONS: Visitors should be aware that the street is full of potholes but this is not the fault of the owners, just something to be careful of and fairly typical of New Orleans off the main thoroughfares.

Artsy Neighborhood, Great Food, & a cute house to boot!

  • 4 of 5

After being in Baton Rogue for 2 days on business, me and my business partner/bestie were super stoked to get to NOLA to enjoy a little R & R. We've stayed in NOLA before at a typical hotel in the French Quarter but I wanted to show my BFF a different side of NOLA. As soon as we turned onto Oak Street, I knew we hit the jackpot! Great food, vintage stores, live music, and friendly people. The house itself was great for the two of us. Clean, comfortable bed, and fully stocked kitchen. The St. Charles trolley runs with in walking distance so it was easy to get around with out having to take the rental car. And I knew we were staying in a "good hood" when I spotted a dude grilling fresh shucked oysters on a grill in the middle of the sidewalk! If you're looking to have your bed made each day and a doorman, then this is not the place for you. If you want to experience how the locals live and a quaint area of town, book now!
