Great place to stay. Loved bike riding and the area is close enough to the FQ yet much quieter. Many great place to eat and enjoy nearby. And Matt and Dusty are the best.

Wonderful house - comfortable and lots of character in a fun neighborhood - away from the hubbub of French Quarter - but not too far! Dusty and Matt are great hosts - welcoming and helpful. Plus house bikes (and cats) a plus!

Matt McShee User Profile

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!
