Morgan was a wonderful host. Her house was beautiful, large and exactly-as-advertised. I was a bit concerned with 12 guys coming to stay for a bachelor party that we weren't going to have enough comfortable places to sleep, but this was not even close to an issue. There are plenty of comfy beds in the house, and the air mattresses (only 2 of them) were actually really nice and comfy!
I highly recommend this house to anyone coming down to New Orleans for a big-group-weekend. I definitely am going to try to stay here again!
Morgan was eager to help us explore the city and get the best of New Orleans. She was always asking if we needed anything and offering local advice.
Nola was a wonderful host, very friendly and helpful. Her house had a beautiful interior and was very spacious. Location was great too. I would highly recommend this house!
The house was perfect for our big group of 16. The porch was such a nice place to enjoy the warm weather. The kitchen was great to cook a big breakfast - it has a lovely range stove. It was super difficult to get cabs, but this seemed to be the story everywhere in New Orleans. The house was a quick walk to some cute local restaurants and coffeeshops, and just beyond that lies the New Orleans Art Museum and Sculpture Garden, which is a beautiful place to walk around and paddleboat.
Everyone has written such nice reviews about Morgan, our host. She was lovely for the most part, though she seemed very stressed out about our stay. Our check-in time was supposed to be 4pm, and she asked for extra time to get the house ready, which was fine for us since our group had a tour that afternoon anyway. When we arrived at 6pm, she was still not ready. One of our group ended up having to blow up and make up two air mattresses and our host was there until midnight trying to finish cleaning. I'm not sure why she didn't hire people to help her clean. She swung by in the morning and brought us donuts and was really helpful in giving us ideas on things to do while we were in town. Overall, I felt like we were a laid back, accommodating group. We straightened everything when we left, took out all of the garbage, stripped the beds. Our host seemed like she wanted to be accommodating to us, too, but the whole weekend she just seemed a bit frantic and overwhelmed. I would recommend this house to others if the host decides to stop trying to do everything herself and hires some help.
Christa's group of 16 seemed like very nice people! I'm really glad they enjoyed the house and my suggestions about things to do in New Orleans. I would like to clarify and respond to some of Christa's comments. First, in our pre booking and pre arrival communications I made it very clear that March was a very intense month for us and the entire City.That we were booked back to back and I was considering not booking Christa as I was concerned even then about pulling off the turnarounds for this enormous 2500 sq.ft house. Christa said she understood and really wanted to book - so we did. Before arrival day she requested an early check in !?? I explained again how difficult that would be and she seemed disappointed. Being ready on time and being really really clean is of paramount importance to me. This depends a lot on if the previous guests left on time ( check out 11am) and what condition they left the house. In preparation for this busy time WE DID HIRE HELP. On the day of Christa's arrival the previous guests left late, the help did not show up AND the washer/dryer broke in mid afternoon causing me to haul all the laundry to the laundromat. Not making excuses - just stating the facts. it was a very hard day and I did the very best I could. I called Christa, apologized and let her know I was running behind. When they arrived at 6pm I was about 80% complete - 11 beds needed to be made and the kitchen needed a final go over. I did the kitchen while having a great chat with some of the ladies. The group left to go to out around 7pm and said they would be back around 11pm. I went to greet other guests and when I returned a young man , slightly tipsy, was sitting on the porch with a 6pack. He turned out to be with Christa's group and he had no way to get in the house. I let him in and as I was making the beds HE OFFERED TO HELP, HE DID NOT "HAVE TO" DO IT. BUT HE WAS A VERY NICE GUY AND REALLY WANTED TO HELP, so he blew up 2 airbeds. I made the other beds and was done as everyone else returned to the house. I was NOT "there until midnight trying to finish cleaning"......
Over the next 2 days, though I was very busy, I encountered various members of Christa's large group who all had questions and I took time to answer them. I tried to accommodate the cigar smoking lady even though other guests complained.. I brought extra towels, I bought and delivered hot donuts. On Sunday, Christa's departure day, checkout was 11am. In our prebooking communication I expressed clearly to her that we had incoming guests that afternoon and a condition of the booking would be to leave promptly at 11am. On Sunday, Christa's departure day, she asked if 5 of their group could leave their luggage in the house until 5pm so they could go explore and catch their later flight. I explained to her how difficult that would be as I was very tightly scheduled to prepare for the next guests. In an effort to accommodate her, we agreed the luggage would be left on the condition that all 5 guests would return at the same time, no later or earlier than 5:00 pm. At 1:40pm Christa called and said one of the guests "forgot" her flight was earlier and she needed to pickup her luggage at 2:00pm instead of 5:00pm as agreed. This was a very stressful request as I was doing laundry off site. There was no way around it, as the guest could not miss their flight - so I paid a person to watch the laundry and jetted over to the house, met the guest , got their luggage, etc. etc. When I got back to the laundromat, the person I paid was gone and there were no more empty machines, so I had to wait, pushing me further behind. A while later Christa texted me and said they would be back at the house between 5 - 5:15pm. I called and reminded her the agreement was 5:00pm and 5:15 would not work. She seemed miffed. But they came at 5:00. I raced over from the laundromat to open the door at 4:50pm. The terrible irony of this is in accommodating Christa's last minute request and then her not keeping to the agreement, the day got blown and I was not ready for the next guests when they arrived, they were not happy and I was very embarrassed. I bought dinner for that group to help mitigate things. The domino effect!.... It's a difficult position to be in when guests want things like early check in, late check out, dropping luggage early, leaving luggage after check out, etc - if you say no then they get mad, annoyed, leave a weird review, etc. if you say yes, then you risk boxing your self into the "accommodating" corner. I have not yet mastered the art of saying NO without fearing or getting the negative repercussions. As far as Christa's "if the host stops trying to do everything herself and hires some help".... believe me I have no desire to "do everything myself"! .....reliable,capable help is very hard to find even if well paid. I cannot control what others do, but faced with the challenges of that weekend, I rose up, powered through and worked my butt off to take care of and accommodate all guests.
As far as the taxi situation - Christa is correct in saying it is a problem all over New Orleans - currently the taxi industry is fighting Uber and other car sharing services while they themselves do not offer good reliable service across the City. This reflects poorly on the City for visitors and locals. With large groups going short distances ( from us to French Quarter) some taxis will not do it. We have reported this to the City and to help our guests we offer various cab numbers and apps and have been know to give guests rides ourselves.
This place was great, exactly as described. We had a group of 8 staying for four days, and it was perfect for us (there was certainly room for more). There's a city bus a couple of blocks away that is easy to get and quickly takes you right to the center of things. Highly recommended for those that want to stay in a somewhat quieter, less touristy part of town (i.e., not right in the French Quarter).
And the porch! If you like sitting on porches and relaxing with your friends, this is the place for you.
Morgan's house was just perfect for our group. I couldn't actually believe the place was as good as the pictures - but it really was; incredible value for money. Plus, she even stopped by to give us tips for the weekend - including joining in on the Sunday parade!
The house is wonderful and perfect for a group. Nola is amazing, she took time to explain many detail for Mardi Gras and where to go. This place is one of the best i've seen.
Fantastic! Margo is a great host. The accommodations were clean and lovely. She gave us great dining recommendations, best places to see the parade from and directions to the closest coffee house -which helped with our Saturday morning hangover!
The house is less than 2 miles from the French Quarter, we walked when we couldn't get a taxi. The walk to the Quarter is along a main road so you will feel very safe. It is also easy biking distance to the quarter and there is a bike lane along Esplande, so that is a good option as well.
If you need a big place with a great host this is the place.
