No inside smoking. Go out to our lovely back yard!
We (group of 6) stayed there during the French quarter Jazz festival and Shameus was a good host, being flexibel about our logistical challenges.
This place was great! Description is very accurate. The house was pretty big; we had plenty of space for a group of five. The location was perfect: walking distance to a fun area, and though it might seem a little sketchy, we never felt unsafe here. Shameus was a really good host, he was available and great with communication, plus he recommended some events to us which was helpful. Definitely recommend!
Very convenient location - a few blocks away from the bars at frenchmen. Shameus was very accommodating - let us check in early and leave bags at the place even after we checked out. Recommend to anybody - especially big groups. This was the first time I stayed in a shotgun style apartment - good times.
Shameus was a great host, had everything ready for our arrival, there were heaters provided in every room, as it was a little chilly on the weekend, plenty of fresh towels and the beds were comfortable, just what we needed after a big night on Frenchmen!
House was exactly as described, neighborhood was pretty interesting in itself, and really close to the action but not close enough that you hear all the hustle and bustle, though just a few minutes walk into the heart of Frenchmen. We never felt unsafe, neighbors were friendly and Shameus was more then happy to provide any information we needed.
He was quick to fix an issue we had with some power plugs, also provided us with a couple sets of keys, which makes life a lot easier when you're a group of 6!
The best part is that he is very easy going, in no rush to get you out, really just lets you go at your own pace, we didn't checkout till after lunchtime which was fantastic, as we didn't have to pack our stuff up before heading out for brunch!
With the price you pay for this place, it really is one of the best places to stay for a NOLA vacation, do not expect luxury, just a comfortable place to chill is all we needed and we got just that, thanks again mate, we will be back!
Shameus was a fantastic host and made us feel right at home. The house was perfect for our large group and the beds were all large and comfy, and everything was spacious and clean. The house was in a very convenient location, just a short walk to Frenchmen St. with great bars and music and a few more steps into the French Quarter. Shameus was always helpful with recommendations and directions to good stuff nearby as well. He was also very accommodating with our early arrival and late departure times which was very helpful. Could not have had a more pleasant experience!
