Penny was gracious and helpful when we had an emergency. Her place is a great spot for a Mardi Gras base, and fun since there are nice restaurants and hot spots to walk to.
Penny welcomed us when we arrived for our Mardi Gras stay with a smile and useful information. The location within walking distance to magazine street is very convenient and fun. We enjoyed ourselves in Nola knowing we had our own little retreat off the beaten path to get some rest. The heavy custom drapery made sure of that!
We spent three very pleasant nights at Penny's place in New Orleans recently. Penny greeted us upon our arrival and gave us the lay of the land, as well as offering some helpful tips.
The space was exactly as advertised (except for the addition of a few new pieces or art that made it even nicer than in the photos). The room felt very private, essentially a separate apartment, but Penny was available to offer tips and recommendations as well.
There were tons of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops within walking distance, and Penny's place was an excellent spot to plan the day or come back to for a good night's sleep. We're already hoping to visit New Orleans again in a couple years, and we would absolutely stay at Penny's again.
Our stay with Penny was great! My girlfriend and I were in town for the weekend and stayed away from touristy New Orleans. Penny's place is perfectly located in what has become one of my favorite neighborhood's in New Orleans. It truly felt like home.
Penny was sweet. We got in late the first night, but she gave us the code to the door so that we could get in and get settled. She made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. She really seemed genuinely interested in what we had planned and what we were doing while in town.
We will definitely stay with Penny next time we head to New Orleans!
Had a great experience. The room was cute, clean, well-maintained & stocked w everything we needed. The wi-fi was solid. We visited on a weekend w both hot & cold days, and the room temperature was always kept at a comfortable level. As you can tell from the photos, the bathroom area is in the corner of the bedroom, set aside by a room divider. We had no issues w it, but it is something that you might want to know going into it. The location was very convenient -- close to Magazine St and very walkable to the streetcar line. We also rented a car and had no issues finding street parking right by the house. Penny gave us some nice rec's on places to check out and eat at in the neighborhood. She was very nice and checked in w us periodically while we were there to make sure all was ok but was never intrusive. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay here!
This was my first airbandb experience and Penny made it a great one! Penny was awesome with communication and was very accommodating. I could not have asked for a better host. The room was perfect and I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Penny ☺
room was amazing! no hasele finding it take 11 from town and get off walk 2 blocks down. We are delighted to have stayed there as magazine street would have gone undiscovered if we had not stayed with penny, amazing street. The room was amazing, clean, all you need, bed amazing! She had snacks and drinks left in the kitchenette. We will def be back and would highly recomenD Pennys! Amazing!
I absolutely loved staying at Penny's place. The studio has loads of charm, filled with beautiful antiques, creativity and comfy bedding. The room is spacious and well stoked with anything I needed, and a short stroll to bars, shops and restaurants on Magazine Street.
What a find!! Within walking distance to our daughter's house and a place to stay that was cozy, well appointed, and clean with a super cool, most lovely and helpful proprietor!! = perfect weekend stay!!!!!! Thanks!!! ( Loved the pomegranate juice in the refrig...) :)
Peggy's place was nicely put together and very clean. The bed. sheets, and mattress were very nice, much nicer than what we've had before with Air BnB lodging. Penny herself is friendly, charming, and a good communicator. The apartment is also a short walk from Magazine Street which has a fair number of decent restaurants, but far enough away that you won't hear all the hubbub.
