Interaction with Guests
The host family lives upstairs and Ben is retired , so he is usually available for help and advice! He will check in regularly via e-mail to assure your comfort.
Just be respectful of the property and no smoking inside.
Mr. Benjamin was truly accommodating. He provided pastries and milk for us during the stay, as well as plenty of literature about New Orleans.
The apartment was very spacious, cool, and comfortable. The neighborhood is very safe and within walking distance to a lot of bars, restaurants, and stores
Benjamin's place exceeded our expectations. It was clean, roomy, and very quiet. And, the location was very convenient to restaurants, coffee shops, or just general walking the neighborhoods of the Garden District. When we return to New Orleans, we will definitely be giving Benjamin another call.
I'll make this review short and sweet...Benjamin was true to his word on everything. The apt was perfect for our needs (separate living room was key for travelling with a 7 month old!); clean and comfortable.
Would highly recommend this space when visiting to NOLA!
I had a great experience with this place... Benjamin was always responsive and communicated regularly. He made check-in simple and easy and he showed me everything I needed to know about his place. It was big, clean, and very comfortable. The location is excellent within a good, friendly, and safe neighborhood. There are shops and restaurants within walking distance. I would definitely try to stay there again.
Benjamin is an excellent and gracious host. He provided very convenient amenities (coffee pot, iron/board, hair dryer, washer & dryer) and some essentials that really made us feel at home (coffee, milk, fruit, yogurt, pastries).
The listing was accurate, and even better in person! It was very clean, comfortable & homey. Great personal style.
The neighborhood is perfect for those walking and taking public transportation. Very close to the bus stops, shops, cafe's and the whole foods and an it's an affordable cab ride to most local destinations!
By the end of our stay, it felt like we could live there. It was really a great experience and I hope to rent from Benjamin in the future!
Benjamin was an amazing host. My flight was delayed over 4 hours and Benjamin was still willing to give me a complete tour of the house at approximately 1:00 AM. Both the neighborhood and the apartment were absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend staying here for a memorable experience. I will definitely be back soon.
About the Host, Benjamin
I am originally from the Midwest and came here in the late 60's to go to Tulane. I have lived all over town and spent 15 years in the French Quarter, then in Faubourg St. John and have been 25 years here on Nashville Ave. Due to some time spent on the Ivory Coast, my French is fairly fluent and I have some Italian. After Katrina, I lost most of my clients and went into the hotel business and managed two hotels in the French Quarter. I love this city and know a bit about it - its' history, attractions, and places to eat and drink
