The dwelling was all it promised, and more. The housekeeper, Ernie, was solicitous and helpful, giving us a thorough rundown of what was included, as well as local amenities. The quality of the accommodations was far beyond expectation, and the local eateries were a delight to experience. This was a stay beyond compare.
It was a beautiful character home with all the amenities and very attentive hosts. Good location in a beautiful hipster area.
It was an amazing experience!
The house was exactly as pictured. Leslie responded to emails immediately and was available each time I called. The house was clean, welcoming and spacious enough for me and my 5 friends. Leslie, through his housekeeper, had 2 well stocked mini refriegerators, which was a very pleasant surprise. Snacks, water, wines and soda were available upon our arrival. The housekeeper had a prepared list of places to go and a map of the bus routes and where to catch the bus. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend anyone to stay there!
Great stay! Ernie was very kind and did a great job of turning over the apt. while we were out for the day. The fresh bottles of water and cokes were great to come home to each evening! We also really appreciated the advice and recommendations Ernie gave us when we arrived.
Don't let this hidden gem of a neighborhood pass you by! We agreed that when we go back to New Orleans, we'd dedicate a day to just the Bywater area. The coffee shop Ernie recommends, Satsuma, is really great and has some fantastic food for breakfast. This area is also easily bikeable to all other notorious parts of NOLA.
We LOVED this location and our hosts! We would definitely stay here again. :)
Where to begin...the experience at Robert's place was truly unforgettable. Ernie the housekeeper was completely magic, from start to finish. He gave us the complete lowdown on the house, the neighborhood, places not to miss, attended to our every need but gave us our privacy, and was just a total sweetheart. The flat itself is beautiful and lavish and unique--such a treat to be somewhere with such character in a neighborhood we might never have seen if we had gone a traditional route. The neighborhood is a blast, and not too far from central hotspots (we walked to the French Quarter the first day). Lots of fun food spots, antique/thrift shops and a great hole in the wall market (the Orange Door???). Frady's solved my mom's quest for the perfect muffaletta and shrimp po' boy, and there were vegan options for me at a number of places (Cake, and Surrey--a bit out of the neighborhood, but Satsuma and Pizza Delicious within walking distance and all terrific for everyone). I could go on forever, but the main point is STAY HERE if you can! Such loveliness all around!
We had a wonderful experience staying in this New Orleans home. This was my first time with Air BnB, and I'm afraid I might be spoiled now. Robert and Ernie were great hosts, and Ernie took incredible care of us. He cleaned the place everyday, including fresh towels and sheets. And the stocked waters were a life saver after each day walking around the hot city. The location is good, with several places to eat nearby, and is about a mile walk from Frenchman street. Bus, Taxi and Uber were also easy ways to get around. I highly recommend this place for your stay in New Orleans.
I stayed here with two other friends for a total of four days. We had arrived in town earlier than the check-in time, but Rob was accommodating and allowed us to leave our luggage at the property beforehand. We were greeted by Ernie the housekeeper, he was incredibly helpful and showed us everything around the house. We had fresh towels, fresh bedsheets, snacks stocked for us in the house each day. Ernie even drew a neighborhood map and provided us with recommendations of where to eat and nearby places we could visit.
The property is located in the Bywater neighborhood, there were many wonderful little restaurants and shops within a few minutes walk nearby. Very accessible to French Quarter and Central Business District. If you don't mind a longer walk, they are pretty easy to walk to, otherwise it's a short bus or cab ride away. This was our first time in New Orleans and we had a great time. Rob and Ernie were very hospitable and it made our stay even more enjoyable. Thanks for being awesome hosts!
