Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Liz and Rick were wonderful hosts, and made good suggestions for how to get around comfortably in New Orleans. We had a great time at the French Quarter Festival, and having a space in walking distance from the French Quarter only enriched the experience. I would recommend this room, this city and this festival to anyone.

  • Liz and Rick were very wonderful hosts. Avery was also very helpful. Everyone was very friendly and conversation came easy. I felt very content and grateful to be staying with them.
    The house and the bedroom are very cozy. It is older and has it's own charm. They have several cats and dogs, all very sweet with their own personalities. If you let Doris, a black and white cat, she'll sleep with you all night. The yard was great. It's spring so nothing was quite blooming full yet after the weird winter, but it looks like it'll be amazing in a few months.
    This room is at the front of the house near the street, so more street noise is able to be heard in this room than the others (I assume). It still wasn't bad though as they are in a neighborhood tucked a bit away from the hustle and bustle.

  • This fun and funky home was an easy distance for walking down Esplanade to the French Quarter. Rick & Liz were so friendly, not to mention patient with our late arrival and our many questions throughout our visit. Add in other interesting guests and purring cats to make me feel right at home. My friend and I stayed in different rooms and all were comfortable (excellent beds) and filled with antiques and flowers. We didn't make use of the bikes that Rick makes available, but they would make the trip down to the river area take no time at all. Very enjoyable stay at an excellent price!

  • Rick, Liz and Avery were the perfect and welcoming hosts who made us feel at home! Our room was perfect and we enjoyed taking the bikes to discover the city. We really couldn't recommend them enough as hosts and will be glad to stay with them again on our next trip to New Orleans.

  • It was a great stay at Rick and Liz place. Just one night but they were very kind to explain me lots of things about New Orleans and then some great tips for my short staying in Atlanta. Thanks!

  • The location was great and it was a nice walk to the French Quarter. We felt very safe walking day or night. Our room was in an old New Orleans home and was full of charm. Our hosts were wonderful people. We sat around and had great chats and for breakfast Rick made tasty homemade granola. I would recommend Rick & Liz Roffs home anytime. We intend to return.

    February 2014
  • We stayed for a week at Rick & Liz's house, it was a very nice experience, they are very warm and welcoming people, we felt very good with them, house is very nice and very well located too it has a nice backyard, breakfast was convenient and they've got bikes for you to bike around, awesome, we had great time biking through NOLA. They've got three nice cats and a lovely dog, Sgt Pepper. I totally recommend staying with them.
