Penny was a gracious host and the room with separate entry was very comfortable. Great for sleeping in mornings because of the curtained and shuttered darkness! Nice neighborhood close to Magazine Street. We would definitely stay here again.
As others have reported, the in-room toilet and bathtub is a little quirky, but one adjusts.
Penny was a great host. She was very available for any questions that we had. We really enjoyed our stay.
I really enjoyed my stay here. The room was very comfortable and Penny was very helpful and friendly. It's just a few minutes walk from great cafes, bars, shops and restaurants on Magasine street, so it was very convenient.
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.
Penny was really sweet to bring by a delicious breakfast treat one morning. She had good, strong coffee available too! The location was great for our purposes and I really enjoyed all her antiques. It rained one night and the shutters made a lot of noise but just happened once. I had to get used to the bathroom being open was the only reason I am rating it 4 stars. The place is very charming
Perfect location and amenities for a intimate vacation for two. We used the easily accessible public transport except for the day the rain storm interrupted our plans. An excellent restaurant, Atchafalaya, is just a few short blocks away. Don't miss the Bloody Mary bar! Thanks to Penny for the delicious coffee and cream to start of each morning. Hint: Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper as the corner can be noisy on weekday mornings (luckily I planned for this in advance). We hope to return in a few years when we get another kid-free weekend! ;)
Great host! Loved the location of the place, you could tell so much thought was put into the room. Extra blankets come handy. Thank you so much for having us, Penny!
The apartment really felt like home - some vacation apartments feel very "vacant" but this one really had character and warmth, just like Penny herself. Comfortable bed, good amenities, nice furniture - it didn't feel like she had gone to any old thrift store and gotten any old thing to furnish it with, but had really put thought and care into it. It was nicely organized and easy to be in.
It was very clean and charming and in a great neighborhood, a quick walk to anything a person could need. It was also really easy to get to from the airport.
Penny was gracious, easy to get a long with and a very quick communicator. I had quite a long list of requests and she really took care of me - there was even chocolate!
I'm already looking forward to my next visit to New Orleans - I know where to stay~
