My friend and I had the pleasure of staying at Liberty's place in Treme in New Orleans for a few days and...wow! Liberty is such a wonderfully warm host and we felt so at home in her wonderful world. Being in her house is like wrapping yourself up in a piece of history. You couldn't ask for a more authentic stay in New Orleans. Liberty took time to tell us about the house and the area and give us some tips for some great local cafes too. She also gave us the number of a wonderful cab driver, El, who we were able to call whenever we needed and who also gave us some great tips! Treme itself is one of the most wonderful places I have visited too. As soon as we stepped out of the house we were greeted warmly by Liberty's neighbors. By staying at Liberty's not only did we have a wonderfully unique stay but we felt instantly a part of the warmth that is the community of Treme. I will definitely be back to NOLA, and in my mind there is not other place to stay but at Liberty's! If you have the chance, stay at this wonderful home. Thanks for everything Liberty!
We felt very welcomed and safe at Huckabuck Village. The accommodations were perfect, extremely comfortble and breakfast tasty with plenty of options available. Liberty and Pops were fantastic hosts-good conversationalists and knowledgeable about New Orleans and her history. Liberty happily offered recommendations for restaurants and we were not disappointed. Huckabuck Village with its beautiful and fragrant patio made for a relaxing and peaceful environment after a day filled with sightseeing and exhaustion. It's an easy walk to the French Quarters from Huckabuck Village and cabs were readily available for the ride home if needed. Convenient location to the Airport, super dome, French Quarters, Jackson Square, and the moon walk at the Mississippi River. We truly felt that Huckabuck Village was our home away from home for the 5 days we visited New Orleans. We will return!
We really enjoyed our stay at Huckabuck Village! Pops greeted us when we arrived and bid us farewell at the end of our stay. He was very friendly and warm. We met Liberty the next day. She was very helpful with suggestions for authentic New Orleans experiences, such as the neighborhood second line!
The house was absolutely beautiful. We fell in love with the period charm and the collection of artwork that filled the home. The breakfast spread provided numerous delicious options that we enjoyed eating in the courtyard! The bedroom and private bathroom were a good size and clean. There were maps and brochures available to help us navigate around the city.
It was only a 20 minute walk to the French quarter, so it was pretty easy to get around. If you aren't familiar with the area, I would avoid driving. Its incredibly easy to get lost with the all the one ways! The neighborhood was safe, just be vigilant and aware of your surroundings.
I would highly recommend staying with Liberty and Pops if you're looking for a -real- New Orleans experience!
Liberty and Pops were excellent hosts who offered extensive knowledge and perfect recommendations for whatever we were looking to do in New Orleans. The house is absolutely gorgeous and the breakfast and conversation every morning were a perfect way to gain a locals' perspective of New Orleans. Liberty and Pops were so accommodating and when we return to New Orleans we will stay with them again.
Staying with Liberty and Pops at Huckabuck Village was a definite highlight of our trip to New Orleans! The home is beautifully appointed, and both the bedroom & private bath are comfortable and spacious. Liberty and Pops are helpful, warm, and make you feel right at home. Their recommendations on where to go for great eats, music, and sights are extremely helpful. The breakfast spread was delicious, and we enjoyed talking to them over coffee on the beautiful back courtyard. The proximity to major areas really made this the perfect place to stay - we walked most of the trip, and cabbed back if it was very late. We highly recommend Huckabuck Village and can't wait to return!
We loved Huckabuck Village, probably our best airbnb stay so far! Both the room and the private bathroom were a good size and bed was very comfy. Liberty was such a great host, very accomodating especially in the morning at breakfast time. Breakfast had a good selection of croissants, breads, jams, tea, coffee, and more. Loved the fruits, papaya in particular. There's a beautiful garden at the back, perfect for breakfast. There were a couple of bikes in the house to borrow and we got to use them for a couple of days. It's a bit of walk to the edge of French Quarter (about 15-20 mins) so after the first 2 days on foot we're pretty grateful for the bikes in the last 2 days to go around. The streets did get a bit quiet and dark after the sun set, but we had no problem the entire 4 nights. Just be aware of your surroundings as you would in any new environment.
Liberty was very kind, warm, and welcoming. She made sure that we wanted for nothing and was always very helpful with advice on New Orleans. There are ample options for breakfast in the morning if you wish to have it there. She was also kind enough to arrange our cab ride back to the airport the day that we left, which was there early too! On the subject of cabs though, we didn't find it as easy to get one to come there on a short notice. This was only necessary on a night that it was raining. So if you're planing to take a cab to the French Quarter or anywhere else, make sure you plan ahead of time. Otherwise the walk there is just fine on a dry day. Thanks for everything Liberty!
