This was the perfect place for our girls' weekend away. Fantastic location, comfortable place and lots of cool stuff around!
Great location!! Place is a little dated and run down, but it's what I expected for the price.
My friends and I had a great time staying at Mr. Henry's place. It was very clean, much more spacious that I realized, and in a perfect location to explore the French Quarter and the Marigny, both of which were in walking distance (as was the Bywater, which we didn't get to). We didn't get to meet Mr. Henry in person but he provided everything we needed (lots of soaps, lots of cleans towels, blankets and sheets, instant coffee, a list of local conveniences, even umbrellas, which came in handy). We felt safe and at home, I would definitely stay at this place again if I ever come back to New Orleans
James was always accessible. Whenever I contacted him he would always respond very quickly. The apartment was located close to the French Market, an easy walk. There is also a wonderful market around the corner and a eclectic café that we enjoyed. The neighborhood was pleasant and we felt safe and at ease.
The apartment was ideal for a long weekend in NOLA. On a cute street in the Marigny, you can walk easily into the center of town (via Frenchmans Street) or into my favourite neighbourhood: Bywater. So many great cafes, restaurants and bars to choose from - Flora and Orange Couch both within spitting distance to pick up a coffee and muffin in the morning. Music was in the air wherever you walked. James Henry was helpful and friendly, and the apartment was clean and charming.
This apartment is in a great location and very conveniently located to Frenchman's St and the French Quarter. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and spaciousness of the apartment.
This is the third time we stayed at James' apartment. It is a short walking distance to the French Quarter and very close to Frenchmen Street.
The apartment is spacious, clean, and quite comfortable. James is a cordial host and easy to reach if needed.

Owner James Henry was a restaurateur for many years with Tamarinds Tropical Bistro in Key West, Florida. He became Miss Veidt's guardian in 1989 due to her declining health. After selling the restaurant, he and Miss Veidt moved to New Orleans in 1999.
