Interaction with Guests
I always love to meet my guests but I wouldn't come knocking at your door if you prefer your privacy! And usually up for a chat if you are :)
I love that it's down to earth, welcoming, historic architecture and a lot of space and green for being basically central New Orleans. It's a residential neighborhood, NOT located in the French Quarter! (see map on bottom of the listing!)

We had a very nice experience staying at Miriam's place. The apartment was very nice, the beds were very comfortable. Everything was very clean and neat and comfortable. I loved that we were living in a real neighborhood, close to the very historic treme neighborhood. The neighbors were friendly. The calm of where we stayed balanced out some of the liveliness of New Orleans. Miriam was friendly, and made everything very easy for us. She gave us our space but came to say hello. Overall a great experience!
This was our second visit to Miriam's place in New Orleans. We had such a good time! Her apartment is spacious, practical and clean, and built in the typical "shot-gun" style (you have to go through each room to get to the next). We loved the swing on the porch! It had everything we needed. Its only a 8 USD taxi ride away from the French Quarter, and if you don't mind taking your time there are buses too. Miriam is a great host, very friendly and well organised. She has adorable dogs (don't worry they stay in the back only).
Dies war schon unser zweiter Besuch bei Miriam in New Orleans und wir hatten eine tolle Zeit. Ihr Haus hat viel Platz, ist sauber und hatte alles was wir brauchen. Es ist im typischen shot-gun style gebaut (man muss durch jeden Raum durchgehen um in den naechsten zu gelangen) und sehr geeignet fuer Familien. Mit Schaukel auf der Veranda!
Es sind etwa 8 USD/ ein paar Minuten mit dem Taxi ins French Quarter, wenn man sich Zeit nehmen moechte kann man auch zu Fuss gehen oder einen Bus nehmen (aber sie fahren nicht so haeufig). Miriam ist eine sehr nette, freundliche und interessante Gastgeberin! Wir haben uns sehr gefreut dieses Mal wieder bei Ihr wohnen zu koennen.
We stayed here to attend the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. It was only a few blocks from the fairgrounds, so very easy walking distance and very convenient. The house was clean and functional, and slept the 3 of us without any problem. The neighbors seemed friendly and, once you got to know the neighborhood, you could walk to a many places to eat, etc. Food recommendations--Pagoda Cafe for breakfast--a block or 2 away and great food! Lola's on Esplanade for Spanish food--a 15 minute walk. Great time and the house was well prepared by Miriam. Recommended.
The place was cute and comfy! It would be great for a small family to share or a group of friends. Very close to the french quarter and restaurants. We drove a few times and then took Uber to Bourbon St for a very cheap rate. We didn't even realize she had dogs until we saw the cute fur babies laying outside one afternoon. Miriam was great!
Miriam was great, very responsive and friendly. She checked on us to determine if we had any needs. She also let us park in the driveway which made life 10x easier as we weren't familiar with the area.
The house was perfect for a short stay, condiments in the fridge and good water pressure! Neighbors were friendly and you can't beat a lovely porch!
Miriam was a great host, was very communicative and made us feel very welcome. Everything was clean and prepared, they beds are very comfortable, the AC worked great, there were essentials provided in the kitchen & bathroom, and she gave lots of suggestions for things around the neighborhood. The location was perfect for Jazz Fest - just a quick walk and you're at the fairgrounds!
