Interaction with Guests
I spend a lot of time daily with guests over breakfast, getting to know one another and helping guests to plan their activities in New Orleans if interested.
The neighborhood is a friendly and welcoming place that is made up of people from all walks of life. Our block in particular is very communal calling ourselves the "Saint Philipians", we get together often and enjoy visitors to our little village as well.
There is public transportation in four directions within walking distance of Huckabuck Village. Cabs are also available and i keep cab phone #'s handy for guests and assist in arranging rides quite often.

Huckabuck Village is magical. From the moment we arrived, Liberty made us feel welcome. If you are looking for a unique experience in New Orleans stay here! The back garden is lush and relaxing. The continental breakfast is fantastic. The bed was comfy. Convenient to anywhere you want to go in New Orleans. You won't be disappointed. I will definitely return!
Liberty was very welcoming and accommodating. She took the time to chat and to get to know us and had lots of good recommendations for places where to listen to good jazz and where to eat. The home is a typical New Orléans house, with lots of original features, which is very interesting and made our stay truly authentic. I would recommend to plan for cabs to commute to and from the home, it s quite cheap (we used uber) and it takes only a few minutes to get to the touristy areas. We appreciated being provided with cold water bottles as we needed every day. Overall a good experience.
My third visit to Huckabuck Village was as charming and warm as the first and the second. Liberty and Pops treat me more like a friend than a customer. My business trips to New Orleans have become an excuse just to see them and absorb their good vibrations. The "Village" is the only place I'll stay when I visit the Big Easy.
Our hosts, Liberty and Pops were most welcoming and made our stay very enjoyable. We even got to meet some of the neighbors and hear their stories.
We were greeted with a large assortment of choices for breakfast and couldn't have gotten our day off to a better start. We had about an 8 block walk to the beginning of the French quarter but at dark we were a little nervous as the crowds died down. The home is comfortable and their garden was very pleasing. I did need Mosquito repellent however due to the recent rains and humidity. The king size bed was very comfortable, the place was quiet, and they gave us great suggestions. We would certainly recommend them to others.
Host made us feel very welcomed with their personable demeanor and great hospitality. They really opened their home up to us. Miss Liberty had great suggestions on planning venues and how to spend our days. Hospitality was off the charts. Highly recommend for that. Description was accurate and decor was very much all New Orleans. Comfortable bedroom and nice courtyard for early morning coffee. Good location. I spent much time on Bourbon street and at the French Market and Jackson square. It is a nice pleasurable what during the day but in the late evening I would catch a cab. Overall very nice experience. Thank you Miss Liberty and Pops. Would stay again
I've stayed in over a dozen Airbnb places in something like 8 states and three countries. This was the best experience of any of them. The place was terrific. It's a gorgeous historic house with amazing art and a wonderful garden. And New Orleans is always wonderful, But getting to know Liberty and Pops is what made the experience. When you visit a city it's so easy to feel just a tourist, an outsider, but Liberty creates such an incredibly welcoming environment that you quickly feel part of a community.
We came for JazzFest--it's easy to walk there or to City Park or the quarter--and it was amazing. But the memories we'll cherish most are sitting over a wonderful home-made breakfast and exchanging stories, and beginning to feel like what it might be like to live here--in fact thinking maybe you should move down here as well.
Liberty is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful with places to go and musicians to see--she was on the New Orleans Jazz Commission. But you also get a sense of a neighborhood in this amazing city. Where else would the son of the legendary producer/co-writer who helped create Fats Domino's greatest hits live up the block and drop by to chat, and then chat some more when hanging on the porch? Where else could you get amazing stories of this city and civil rights activism and music, and everything else that makes New Orleans wonderful?
Just a great experience and we know we'll be back.
Everything everyone else reports is straight up accurate. Liberty is a wonderful host. She made great recommendations on restaurants, she went out of her way to accommodate us by calling a cab, lending us ponchos and umbrellas...breakfast each morning was really nice in her backyard courtyard, the room was sweet, the bed was comfortable. Liberty is a great ambassador to a great city. Thank you, Liberty!
