The Grand Jewel helped make our stay for Mardi Gras even better than expected. Myself and 6 others stayed for a bachelorette during Mardi Gras and had a blast. There was plenty of room, it came stocked with coffee and wine, and it is literally steps off Bourbon. The only issues we encountered were that the bathroom and toilet were not very clean upon our arrival. The toilet was a little nasty. But other than that, we enjoyed our stay and would absolutely recommend it to others. The hosts were gracious and amenable to special requests, which always makes for a better stay.
The place was great and just around the corner from Bourbon like we needed it to be. Just what we were looking for.
My guests and I had a great time at Sam's house. Everything was accurate as described. The location of the house is perfect- everything was within walking distance. The house was clean and it looked just as the pictures posted.
Despite the craziness of bourbon street and loud/packed action happening within the steps right outside the house, one would think that you will be able to hear all of the noise and not be able to sleep or relax. HOWEVER we could not really hear all the noises from outside and it was pleasantly quiet (something everyone enjoys- their uninterrupted sleep).
Sam was very efficient in responding all my emails. Although I did not meet Sam or Vic in person, Vic called me upon my arrival and explained everything about the house and surrounding areas. He was very helpful.
Overall, it's a great house, in a great location...we are already planning next year's outing.
***Definitely consider staying at Sam's house!
Both Vic and Sam were very communicative prior to our stay and getting us into the house. The spot is great, a stones throw away from a great diner and Bourbon street. We did have a small issue with other guests using the lock box code and coming into the house while we were sleeping which as pretty scary. I guess they got the address wrong and the code was the same for both lock boxes. But all in all it was a positive experience.
I highly recommend The Grand jewel. It was literally right in the heart of the French Quarter. The place was clean and in a safe area (by New Orleans standards). The street was also relatively quiet at the evening. I would stay here again.
Samuel and his assistance were very helpful in advance of our trip and were readily accessible during it. We had one small house issue late at night on a Sat, and despite their being at a wedding, they found a way to quickly support us. The house is in a GREAT location and we loved being int he heart of things. It feels very authentic in the location and the house style, and while it was somewhat tight, it was definitely doable for 5 guys just looking to have a fun weekend in New Orleans. If you are couples, there is not much privacy - only one room has an actual door- but that didn't matter to us. If your group is the right size and looking for an awesome location, this is great.
Samuel and Vic were great hosts. Everything we needed was provided and then some. If we had any questions, I was able to call Vic and he would respond immediately. We had a great experience and I would definitely rent from Samuel in the future. The house was steps to Bourbon street which was very convenient. Definitely recommend this place if you are looking to stay near Bourbon Street.
