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.
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.
Benjamin made it easy to pick up keys and come see the apartment. It is in a beautiful neighborhood, VERY close to magazine street. He even had some pastries, milk and coffee ready when we arrived. The apartment was very clean and the bed is SO comfortable. He was a very flexible host and gave us complete privacy. A great find in New Orleans.
This airbnb was amazing. We were traveling with our 2yr old son and the space was perfect. Everything we needed Mr. Ben had for us. He even had fresh OJ and pastries waiting for us. This is an awesome spot!
Benjamin is amazing. Prior to my arrival he responded to all questions I had within a very short time. He gave me very helpful instructions on how to get to the property via the streetcar which saved me cab fare. When I arrived he was ther to show me where all things were and how they worked. The property is located in a very nice area Uptown and within walking distance of the park, Magazine Street and the streetcar. Benjamin had fruit, pastries fresh juice and milk ready for me which was much appreciated after traveling from Chicago. There is a Whole Foods a block away and of course many great places to eat right in the neighborhood. After a very crowded day at Jazz Fest it was like coming home to a refuge when I returned to Benjamin's. I will definitely go back to stay. I was there 6 nights and the time was too short. There is privacy but the fact that Benjamin lives upstairs was very nice when my daughter needed an extra key and I couldn't get to where she was.
Benjamin was incredibly responsive and helpful when we made a same day reservation that ended up being thwarted by a storm. We would have loved to stay at his place uptown (especially since the area looked very child friendly) but since the storm knocked the power out, Benjamin connected us with friends of his with a very cool French style rental in the Lower Garden District. All the arrangements were smooth and Benjamin was very helpful!
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
