Other Things to Note
We wrap up at midnight, you don't have to stop just be respectful
Joseph and Paul made us feel not just welcome, but wanted! They were kind enough to let us check in early and check out late due to our flight schedule and rain, and Paul even printed our boarding passes out (Spirit charges 10 dollars just to check in at the counter). They were attentive, thorough, having thought out every need you'll have, and laid back hosts I recommend for everyone. Paul even tried to get some oysters in us before we left for our flight as they were setting up a party in the back, but we couldn't stay due to timing. I hope to come back and take him up on those oysters next year!
If you're looking to avoid traveling time from your stay to the French Quarter, stay in the French Quarter--cabs to and from pretty much anywhere in the city to this space were in the 12 dollar range which is not bad but something to consider (they did provide bikes, we just chose not to use them). If you're looking for a considerate host situation with a clean, thought-out, fun space that can stand as its own getaway aside from Bourbon St., you can't lose with the Carriage House.
We spent our first ever experience in New Orleans at the carriage house and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Our hosts greeted us as we arrived and made us feel welcome and at home for our entire trip. The bikes were CLUTCH for getting around town and allowed us to explore at our leisure. The double shower heads and hot tub on the roof, both of which we used everyday, really added a touch of rustic luxury. Would stay again hands down.
First time to New Orleans and because of people like Joe & Paul, we will most definitely be back! The carriage house was exactly as described, if not BETTER. The bedroom area was cozy and comfortable, with a French press, coffee beans, and a coffee grinder. The bed was very comfy! The bathroom/shower unit was like a luxurious outdoor spa complete with fluffy towels and accessible shampoo/conditioner/body soap. Taking a shower with the two shower heads and listening to the rain fall on the roof... HEAVENLY! Every detail in both units was well thought out and beautifully appointed. There's also a resident love bug (pup) by the name of Treme that checks in every so often to make sure your stay is going well.
What really made our experience so great was the people. Joe was thoughtful enough to ask if we would mind him having a crawfish boil party during our stay and invited us to partake. What a blessing it was just to be part of this community's gathering (and the food was amazing!). Everyone was so kind and welcoming to us... No one was a stranger. It's an experience we will never forget and one that we surely wouldn't have had the opportunity to experience had we stayed in a hotel. Thank you so much, Joe and Paul, for welcoming us into your beautiful home and warm community!
What a great host and a terrific forest time NOLA experience! Joseph was interesting, polite and very kind to my wife and I on our honeymoon. We had such a wonderful stay, enjoyed the city, the weather and biking all over during our stay. Accommodations were clean, cute, comfortable and relaxing. The Jacuzzi and courtyard have a fantastic charm and added to the trip. Any host who provides a French press to their guests gets extra points from this coffee snob. And delicious dark roast to boot!
The Carriage House was perfect. We arrived to the wine/cheese/bread trio and it was just the right touch to wash away a stressful road trip. The pictures don't do the accommodations justice.
Hosts Paul and Joe have really put love and sweat resources into TCH to make it a truly special place that goes beyond the facade. Be ready for a stream of friendly hosts including "Treme", the extra friendly Sci-fi/fantasy looking dog. Paul himself goes the extra mile (metaphorically too) to see that his guests are enjoying their visit :).
We'd definitely stay here again. We initially rented the place for the proximity to attractions, and the HOT TUB! The hot in itself is nice but everything else was superb. Great job Paul and Joe! Kudos and Allons on to your next experiment.
Places we ate nearby that were delicious...Parkway Poboys, Coco Hut Caribbean food, Cafe Degas French, Cafe Pagoda.
This carriage house was so quaint and the perfect little get away for us! Joseph was a great host and very accommodating with our travel times. He got back to me regarding any questions or concerns in a very short time. The outdoor shower was amazing! The house was pretty close to public transportation and it was also easy enough to call a taxi to get downtown. We would definitely come back here again!
The carriage house was everything we hoped for and more! It was such a wonderful place to stay while in the Big Easy- and the location is perfect for biking around to Frenchman St., the French Quarter, City Park and the Bywater. It was so lovely to stay here, we will definitely be coming back soon! Also, the hot tub is a dream and the outdoor shower is magic! We have never felt so relaxed :)
