Our family had an amazing stay at the guest house! Jeremy was very friendly and helpful and he provided us with a great list of food and music venues to explore. And the location can't be beat--the comfortable space is exactly like it is pictured and it's so New Orleans! We wish we could have stayed longer and would definitely go back.
We all would like to thank Jeremy and Abigail for being such great hosts. The house was beautiful and charming. They helped us with places to go to shop and eat and their suggestions made our trip. Would def recommend this listing to have a great trip in New Orleans.
This place is amazing! Perfect location in one of the most convenient neighborhoods in New Orleans. Plus, it's behind the main house so it's peaceful and relaxed. Jeremy and Abigail are incredibly friendly and helpful. I can't wait to visit again.
We had the BEST time at Abigail & Jeremy's beautiful place in New Orleans. We loved everything about the house especially the quiet & relaxing courtyard. The location cannot be beat and it was great having Jeremy around to give us advice about music and food venues. We would go back in a heartbeat!
This was my 9th jazz fest stay. I've sunk into the area over the years and know my way around some what. Jeremy and Abigail's place was over the top nice and fun. The location can't be better, I know!! My daughter met me here and we celebrated her 25th birthday. She had the the most beautiful room . The decor speaks to New Orleans and is soul inspiring. I would definitely stay here again!
This was the first trip for me and my newly graduated friends, and our first time using airbnb. Abigail and Jeremy made this trip that much more amazing. Not only did the guest house look exactly as the description and pictures, but also they went above and beyond in helping us get around New Orleans. Jeremy especially made sure that we were comfortable by checking in throughout the weekend, sending texts that included all the local bars/restaurants/entertainment, and even inviting us to his band's show, which was awesome! If we ever went back to New Orleans, I'm sure we'd stay in this guest house again, and I recommend it to anyone looking for an awesome place to stay in New Orleans.
Abigail and Jeremy provided our family with comfortable and unique accommodation in the BEST location. The big bed was so comfortable and the shower was relaxing. When we were not gallivanting around the French Quartre we were sitting in the dainty family room listening to some great records. To top off our stay we were fortunate enough to watch their band, Bon Bon Vivant, perform at Maison, do yourself a favour and go watch them, they're great! We would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone who wants to settle in and experience NOLA.

About the Host, Abigail & Jeremy
Abigail owns a women's accessories company that is run out of the historic French Market. You will see her fascinators in different shops around the French Quarter as well. I am a saxophonist playing Jazz and Old Rhythm and Blues. Abby and I have played music together our entire relationship (10 years) and are currently playing in our own original band called Bon Bon Vivant.
When we decided to add our guest house to Airbnb we wanted to make sure that it represented what we love about old romantic/mischievous New Orleans. The exposed brick, vibrant colors and architecture are some of these aspects. Sitting on the courtyard balcony at night you can even sometimes faintly hear the brass bands playing songs on Frenchmen St. that have been passed down through generations. We love our city and we hope you will too.

Great New Orleans Jazz and the best pork chop I have ever had. This restaurant harkens back to the supper clubs of the 1920s.

Lit by candle light this is the oldest bar in the Quarter and one of 3 buildings left in the original French architecture. Grab a drink and sit in the back at the piano and ask for your favorite tune.
The blackened redfish and the rabbit and andouille sausage jambalaya are awesome. This bar was home to many locals during the storm, they have famously never closed since Katrina
I proposed to my wife here, this is one of the best restaurant in the city. The cheesecake and the lamb are the best I have ever had. Listen to the piano player and have a cocktail before you sit.
This is a fun combination of New Orleans and soul food quinine with a modern spin. Great Food.
This cool dark bar is a little pricey but they make some of the finest hand crafted cocktails in the city. Gin Fizz, Old Fashion, The Pim's Cup...all great choices.
