International guests welcome. I enjoy very much showing guests from other countries our wonderful city!
Very nice spacious bedrooms airy and open condominium beautifully landscaped gated community with protected parking. I treat everyone who stays with me as a special person because you are. I want you to feel welcome in my home and have a nice time while you are in New Orleans .I will be glad to assist with your planned agenda in order to make your stay a remarkable one. Meeting new people and
hosting is my favorite pastime. I am on a cell phone 24/7 so
a guest would be able to reach me in case they need assistance or have an emergency. I do live here but I greatly respect other people's privacy and personal space. I spoil my guests and enjoy doing so. Get used to being pampered.!
One morning I was awakened by a vibrantly red cardinal pecking at my window. There is a bird sanctuary very close by. Also enjoy a continental breakfast with fresh coffee, rolls, fruit and orange juice each morning. Harrahs casino, Aquarium of the Americas,, plantation tours, swamp tours, voodoo tours, and the fabulous French Quarter are 6-8 minutes away by (website hidden) downtown New Orleans. Great for Mardi Gras and any other festive occasions. Boomtown casino and a swamp tour are also near my condominium. Swimming pool, fireplaces, friendly atmosphere, and gracious host. Can pick you up at airport and bring you back There is also WIFI and cable tv. Children and pets are welcome. Beautiful colored lights at the doorway illuminate
your pathway at night
There are two bedrooms to choose from-The "Angel Room" master bedroom with the angel tapestry overlooking the queen-sized bed is decorated in the old New Orleans tradition and has an antique 40's vanity and a beautiful fireplace at the opposite wall. The mattress is a posturepedic and is "heavenly" to sleep on. There is also an Oreck air purifier to provide crisp clean air. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a memory foam mattress. It is decorated in white with a beautiful rose crochet bedspread. There is one large hollywood bathroom done in an old movie style theme with old time pictures of movie stars and vintage movie posters. The Hollywood bathroom has two entryways.

I belong to has a wonderful hydromassage bed and
massage chair that is free for one guest at a time.
My sister especially enjoyed the theatres. " Streetcar Named Desire" by Tennessee Williams actually produced here was a very special and unique play she will always remember. Movies are often filmed in New Orleans during the warmer months and I have ran across "movie shoots " in progress while taking guests around to see the sights. This was quite exciting and you never know what you may see while you are visiting. My mother and myself had the opportunity to be extras in a commercial a few years ago and it was quite an experience and fun to do.
The horse and buggy is a great way to visit the French Quarter and the drivers will often give you a colorful description of the history of the city and surrounding areas.
I have even had a couple who spent their honeymoon here and a few celebrated their birthdays. If you do need rides
I have taken the guests on tours myself and would gladly drop you off or pick you up If I am available.
Guest will have access to the kitchen and can
cook if they wish and keep items in the refrigerator.
I will be on my cell phone 24/7 if my guests need
me for anything.
Beautifully landscaped and well kept
Of course there is a taxi service and the city bus if
need be. Also, if guests need a lift into the French
Quarter, etc, I will be glad to do so if I am available.
Children are welcome at no charge
Pets are fine if they are well behaved and house
At first glance we were skeptical of the neighborhood when we arrived. There was trash in the street, and the complex is easy to miss. But Linda quickly made us feel at home, ushered us into her warm and inviting home, and offered some hot chocolate while we settled in. The condo is safe, it is convenient, and the only thing you'll need to get used to is sharing the bathroom with Linda and her additional guests.
I always try to have my guests have a good Airbnb experience and be satisfied 100%. So sorry if there was trash in the street. It comes from Wendy's and Rally's drive ins down from us. The complex itself is gated and very clean and beautifully landscaped. Our gardeners pick up any trash or debris close to us that is on the street outside our gate. As listed I do have only one bathroom. It is a large Hollywood bathroom nicely decorated in a Hollywood theme. The very nice couple that stayed in the other bedroom for a few days were gone most of the time sight seeing. and I belong to a 24 hour spa and was gone much of the time running errands. I try to supply a friendly, safe, and warm environment to my guests and I hope you enjoyed the 'Angel Room" you requested to have. I always try to go the extra mile for my guests and supplied
a dozen beautiful red roses for your room upon your arrival and made a very generous and abundant breakfast each morning.. I hope you enjoyed this and sorry about your inconvenience.
Linda was an even better host than I expected, and I had already expected great things based on her many great reviews. Me and two friends of mine used Airbnb as temporary housing while we searched for an apartment, and were on a tight budget so we planned to just rent out the one room and use a cot. When we got there, Linda offered us the other bedroom free of charge! And she had freshly baked cupcakes out for us and made us hot cocoa. Every morning her breakfasts were amazing and so much food we could never eat it all. There was an assortment of fruits and nuts, coffee and orange juice. She even switched it up, with donuts and croissants on different days. I also brought my cat with me and Linda kept her company while we were gone and was so understanding about the cats bad habits. Linda gave us the newspaper and consistently offered her help while we searched for a place. And as I read in another post, Linda gives the perfect amount of space. She's fun to talk to but polite and lets you feel at home. Her home is so charming too with all the classic decor. Then, when we found a place and were packing up to leave a day early, Linda refunded us our one extra day! I would give more than five stars if I could, and I highly recommend staying with Linda.
Linda was an excellent hostess. We appreciated her driving us directly to a local restaurant on our first day of visiting so that we would know the exact location. The breakfast she prepared each day was fabulous. Thank you Linda for your warm hospitality.
Linda is the most incredible host you could possible ask for. Not only is her place comfortable, well-kept and clean, and more than anyone could wish for at the price, but Linda herself is also an extremely hospitable and genuine hostess, with a sincere Southern kindness about her and an unceasingly optimistic spirit. She went out of her way to pick us up at the airport, made last minute arrangements to help us coordinate a group of four people arriving at different times, and did everything she could to make us each comfortable. She also has lots of stories and ideas of good things to see and do. She helped us to reach the places we wanted to visit, suggested new tours that we hadn't thought of, and we were glad to invite her along as a guest on some of our explorations. Not to mention the sumptuous and elegant breakfast she laid out each morning! All in all she was a delightful hostess, and wonderful company. So glad to have met her, and have already recommended her to two of my friends.
I came to New Orleans for the Jazz Fest and had a great time there. Linda describes her place as true southern hospitality but I was not expecting to be picked up from the airport and taken back there at the end of my stay. Linda also insisted that she gave me lifts to and from the Jazz Fest site on each of the three days I attended. Along with the generous breakfasts this was hospitality above and beyond the call of duty. Excellent all round. Thank you Linda
Linda is an excellent host! Made our 1st use of airbnb great. Nice secure place....good food. Best part is the host....she goes above and beyond to make your stay great!!!!
Linda is a very nice person, helpful and considerate. The bed was very comfortable and had off street parking for my car. Convenient location.
Linda was an excellent host with delicious breakfast and really helpful for everything, it as a great break in New Orleans thanks to her !
Merci à Linda pour tout ses bon services, c'était un agréable séjour ! Fanny
Linda was a wonderful hostess! She was very thoughtful (laying a beautiful breakfast table each morning) and accommodating with multiple breakfast options and helpful insights for tourist options. The best part?? The bed was AMAZING - deep, quiet sleep and a cozy, safe environment. At first the single bathroom was awkward, but a simple discussion with Linda on managing privacy and all was well. The gated community made me feel safe also. I highly recommend her digs for your next visit down her way!
