Interaction with Guests
We live next door, so you may well see us, say hello! We are always on hand to offer information and tips about our neighborhood and the rest of New orleans, but we will leave you in peace to enjoy it!
Bywater is classic New Orleans, but without the brashness and noise of the French Quarter.
We now offer complimentary bicycles, complete with locks and helmets, for our guests (just a refundable deposit and liability waiver required). This makes it real easy to get around as New Orleans has NO HILLS! Also bus route no.5 runs by the end of the block straight to the French Quarter and downtown areas. There is also free on-street parking right outside the house.
Other Things to Note
Just a block away is the entrance to the Crescent City Riverside Park, great for walking, biking, jogging and watching the ships on the Mississippi River.

Very nicely done. All amenities were provided for and it was all quite comfortable. A couple of minor glitches were resolved quickly.Very cool area with a couple of local bars and nice restaurants. $3.00 dollar craft beers at the place one block down, and lots locals to make it interesting. Recommended!
We had a lovely time staying at Matt and Dusty's place. The room was a perfect size for my partner and I, with THE MOST comfortable bed. They were very accommodating when we had an issue with our bikes and ended up having to take a cab back to the house; Dusty covered the fare which was such a very polite and awesome gesture. My partner and I are looking forward to our next visit and definitely want to stay here again due to the great location and quiet /safe neighborhood.
Great place! Great hosts! Very convenient location close to many amazing restaurants and bars/music venues! Wine, Coffee and real creamer!! ALSO...THEY HAVE LOANER BIKES!

Matt & Dusty are excellent hosts. Their place was clean and tidy and in an excellent location with great bars and restaurants. They gave us a lovely breakfast on Mardi Gras and we were invited to dress up as smurfs for the day! Great hosts, great place!
Very nice stay in a great neighborhood.
Dusty was very welcoming once we arrived. He told us about a great jazz show a block and a half away. Best jazz I have ever heard and The Joint BBQ next door is the (website hidden). The place itself was perfect! Just as the pictures show. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and anyone trying to gain an authentic feel for New Orleans.

Matt and Dusty love New Orleans so much, we want y'all to come and stay at our house so you can fall in love with it too. We travel a lot, but coming home to the "Big Easy" is always a pleasure. Dusty is a true Southern Gentleman, born in New Orleans, raised in Alabama. Matt is a Scot, raised in London, who moved to New Orleans on a temporary assignment, and fell in love with the city and the people. There is nowhere else we'd rather be for Mardi Gras, Jazzfest, Southern Decadence, Halloween etc. Laissez les bons temps roulez!
