About this listing

Huckabuck Village was built in 1857 during the early developmental Hey Day of the neighborhood known as Faubourg Treme'.

My friend and I enjoyed our stay with Liberty and Pops. They were helpful and left tidbits of info about the city for us to read. Their home was peaceful and in a quiet neighborhood.
A continental breakfast was provided in the mornings as well as bottled water (which was much needed with a heat index near 100).
We didn't rent a car because we planned to go into the city often (and near Canal St parking is pricey). But there is street parking at this property. We took public transportation during the day ($3 day pass) and Uber at night (but it was surge pricing most nights and only Uber X and higher was available making it pricey). Public transportation doesn't come often during the later hours (some buses only come every 60 or 90 minutes and will have you walking a lot). While I felt safe, the walk from the bus stop late at night might concern some but that goes for any major city. Just be aware of your surroundings and preferably follow the safety in numbers logic.
I would stay here again.
Nous avons eu un accueil très chaleureux et nous nous sommes sentis à l'aide immédiatement. Liberty est une super hôte qui a toujours pris soins de nous. Le logement est une agréable très grande maison avec une décoration recherchée et typique. Chaque matin nous avons profiter de la cuisine pour prendre un petit déjeuner copieux et échanger avec Pops et Liberty qui voulais également perfectionner son français. Nous avons pu profiter du jardin si agréable de jour comme de nuit. Nous avons découvert le quartier populaire de Trémé qui est très attachant et qui reflète bien la Nouvelle Orléans.. La maison est a 20 minutes à pieds du French Quarter. Grâce à Liberty, nous avons découvert le jazz de la Nouvelle Orléans et les festivals de la semaine (cajuns et tomates créoles). C 'est avec plaisir que nous retournerions à Huckabuck Village in Trémé chez Liberty et Pops !!
Our host was a wonderful welcoming person. We felt honoured to be able to stay in Huckabuck and Treme.
I must start by saying Liberty is Very Amazing! Staying at Huckabuck Village was wonderful, I loved the sense of community, and how welcomed we were. This place is very Lovely, that courtyard is gorgeous! The room was wonderful, and I loved the balcony connected to the bathroom. Liberty makes great suggestions if you ask, our experience was over all Wonderful. Thank You so much, We will be visiting again very soon!
Liberty was amazing and the room and house itself so gorgeous. We were lucky to have our own bathroom and large room with large comfy bed. A big selection for breakfast was on offer each day and Liberty always pointed us in the right direction for good drinks and entertainment. Would stay here most certainly again. Thanks.
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!
