The French Quarter is a beautiful historic neighborhood in New Orleans. The property is located on a quiet, residential block and we know all of our neighbors. It's a great location since it's walkable to all locations throughout the French Quarter.
The French Quarter is easily walk-able, as well as nearby locations in neighboring areas, such as Frenchmen Street in the Marigny and the Arts/Warehouse District.
Streetcars are a great leisurely option to go Uptown and to Mid-City. At night a taxi is the preferred transport method, we provide you with a couple numbers on the Welcome Document in the room and in the Airbnb House Manual. Taxis are fairly inexpensive in New Orleans.

Our stay here was excellent! Kyo was super helpful and informative, and the studio was cute, very clean, and close to everything we wanted to do.
The room is small, very much like a hotel room, but perfect for it's location: with so many awesome places to eat and things to do in walking distance you should be out during your waking hours anyways.
Would definitely recommend!
The studio is exactly as described. Super clean, even has toiletries in the bathroom! The courtyard is beautiful and the location is amazing. 2 mins to bourbon st, 15 mins to Frenchmen's st or Canal st. Kyo is a fantastic host giving clear instructions on how to get in. She also has some great recommendations of places to eat and things to do. If you get bored of shrimp and crab, try The Joint BBQ in Bywater, delicious! Also the Country Club in Bywater has a great pool & tasty crab cake Bennies. Would definitely stay here again next time we are in New Orleans.
Kyo was an awesome host! Her directions were very helpful and easy to follow and the studio was perfect for us. Fantastic location, clean and comfortable! We had a wonderful week in New Orleans and I would definitely recommend staying here!
Calm and reserved location, a couple blocks away from the heart of the French Quarter. Kyo was extremely helpful and answered all questions we had about the property and city. I would definitely recommend this property.
Stayed at the French Quarter Studio Retreat for 7 nights and could not recommend this place more. Spacious studio that was spotless on arrival, with a beautiful courtyard that is exactly how it appears in the pictures here. The location is perfect, tucked away in a quiet spot in the Quarter that you can easily retreat to when needed, but still only a 2-3 minute walk to the most active parts of the Quarter. Kyo was responsive every time I had a question and made sure I had everything I needed. Free cable and WiFi was a huge bonus for a midday break from the heat, too! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
A lovely apartment, clean and comfortable, easy to find and the location was perfect - just far enough from the centre of the French quarter to be quiet but only a short walk anywhere. We were there in the middle of Summer so the pretty courtyard was too hot to use but the a/c in the apartment was beautifully cool. Good facilities including wifi and everything you need nearby. We'd definitely stay here again - Kyo was a friendly host and we'd highly recommend this apartment.
This studio is even more perfect than it looks. The location cannot be beat and the host is extremely helpful and accommodating. We will definitely stay here again!
