Cozy Little Retreat for a Honeymoon!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a lovely stay for my new husband and I, the house was easily accessible, clean, perfectly enough room for the two of us. We really appreciated having a kitchen and Fridge so we could bring home leftovers to snack on later instead of eating out for every single meal! The air conditioning was a particularly nice addition, along with the wifi! When we had to have a package shipped to us during our stay our host was very accommodating. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Perfect for a single or couple!

  • 5 of 5

I just happened across this property when planning a trip to NOLA with my fiancée- and we loved it! It was perfect for the two of us and we really appreciated having a kitchen (and utensils) to use! The washer and dryer were also a great plus. We ended up visiting the French Quarter three out of the five days we were there and the house is only about a 10 minute drive away. We thought the property was in a general good location when it came to finding other things to do as nothing was too far. We also appreciated the guest book that's left in the house with recommendations ranging from food to pharmacies, with some restaurant menus included. Giselle responds to messages quickly, which is very nice! Overall, we were both happy with the house and would definitely stay again/ recommend it to others visiting the area!

Adorable Cottage - Quiet Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Such a sweet, comfortable property! We enjoyed the accommodations very much on our short stay in Gentilly to visit friends. The kitchen is well-equipped, making it easy to eat in and save some money, as well as enjoy quiet time away from crowds. I was thankful for the iron and small ironing board, as well as hangers in the closet. The bathroom is quite cramped, but served us well. If we had stayed longer, we probably would have taken advantage of the washer and dryer, too. The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with. We were grateful to find such a comfy, affordable place in just the right neighborhood for our trip!

Loved out stay!

  • 5 of 5

Giselle couldn't have been more sweet! The accommodations were fantastic, and we cannot wait to come back! The wifi is a bit spotty in the back of the house, but that is a small issue in the face of an overwhelmingly positive experience. If you are staying in New Orleans, book this house!

Just Right in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

What a charming space, It is absolutely perfect for a couple. We had a 12 day stay and felt a bonus to have laundry facilities included. The neighborhood is quiet and at first felt a little "off the beaten track" but in no time we found that we were closer than we thought to anything we needed. Truly a lovely stay.

Perfect New Orleans Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home! Quiet location. Perfect for my husband and I. Home had all of the amenities we needed. About 15 minutes from the Bourbon Street and the French Quarter. I would recommend a car but, the home is very close to public transportation. Taxi services are also available.
