Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in Giselle's little house. Everything was clean and tidy and provided plenty of everything we needed for our week's vacation. For us, the location was perfect: just a few minutes drive from everything we wanted to see and do. I'm sure that we will stay again if the house is available. Our only complaint was that the air conditioning in the living room was noisy.

Comfortable well-equipped Cottage had all the amenities we could have asked for.

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect place to come home to after a long day of being a tourist and going to Mardi Gras parades. Giselle could not have been more sweet, or helpful, if she had been related. Would definitely come back here again.

Cottage is located in a neighborhood far enough away from downtown to be quiet and homey, but close enough to not be too far away from anything. Though we had a car, public transportation is close.

Ideal Home Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Gentilly Guest House 3 nights just before Christmas. We found the guest house met our needs while on our holiday from New Zealand. The bathroom was a bit small but we really appreciated having the washer and dryer. The only major negative for us was the building construction happening right outside the bedroom area and being woken very early in the morning. However once this is finished We would recommend this Guest House for a quiet place to stay.

Great, quiet space!

My first time visiting New Orleans, and I really enjoyed my stay at Gentilly Guest House. It was really quiet and safe. Very close to the French Quarter and not far from other NOLA attractions.
