Interaction with Guests
The space is totally private with its own enterance from the backyard. However, we are here to say hi, chat, or help with recommendations should you need anything.
Our neighborhood is the best! It is quiet and residential but close to everything. Furthermore, it is home to many Mardi Gras Indians, second lines, and real New Orleans culture.
We are located about a mile up from the French Quarter, City Park, and other fun happening neighborhoods. Our neighborhood is a quite residential area and typical to New Orleans some house are stunning while others could use a fresh coat of paint. Thing we love most about where we live is that most of our neighbors have been there for generations.
You can catch a bus to the French Quarter one block from the apartment. We recommend taking advantage of our bikes or enjoying the beautiful scenery on your two feet.
At night biking should be safe, however if you have been drinking or are not great with directions we recommend just taking a taxi or pedicab to be truly safe.
We have a long list of cab recommendations on our welcome list. ☺
Other Things to Note
WiFi! There is WiFi set up in the home which you are free to use. However, with the range of devices that are out there, it works for some better than others. We have done all we can to provide this amenity other than getting a separate account and router just for the apartment. Which would cost us beaucoup bucks, and inherently raise the price of the space. Basically it should work, but we are always happy to help you trouble shoot it or look up something for you if needed.
Please be kind be respectful to our home, leaving things as nice as you found them.
Please be courteous to us as well as our neighbors in managing your noise level.
There is no smoking allowed in the house, but feel free to step out onto your patio to take a smoke break outside.
If you have a friend who is local to NOLA who will be stopping by at any point please just let us know. We do have a strict policy of no unapproved through AirBnb guests overnight.
We love renting on AirBnB, but please be aware and courteous to the fact that this is not a standard hotel room. It is a space that is a part of our home which we love. Meaning if you are looking for a party house, please look elsewhere.
Should you need or have a question about anything during your stay feel free to communicate with us.
A Crosley radio always tuned tuned to New Orleans' own WWOZ 90.7 FM. Or plug in a device to listen to your tunes.
Molly is super responsive to messages and was flexible when we asked to extend our checkout. The home is pretty easy to find and super close to the bus line (#91 will take you to French Quarter and Garden District). It's about a 15 minute walk to the very edge of the French Quarter. The bathroom was fully stocked with towels and toiletries. The bed was super comfy and all the linens were clean. Good climate control within the home. The free bikes had rusted chains and low tire pressure, so we didn't use them. Also, the dogs were a bit noisy. Otherwise, this was a very lovely home.
My parents and I visited New Orleans for the Bayou Bagaloo music festival. Molly and Prescott's home was perfect!! There space was bright and beautiful...clearly an artist's touch. The couple were very sweet and accommodating. Having a bike made morning coffee runs a breeze! The backyard area was such a treat to spend time hanging outside.
I would definitely stay at their place again!
Thanks for a wonderful stay! Best of luck with everything! ️Xo
Molly and Prescott were wonderful hosts and I had a fantastic stay at their place. I can't stress enough how beautiful the place was and you can clearly see how much care and love has been put into this property.
Me and my sister visited the city for a week and this small apartment catered wonderfully to all of our needs. It was very spacious and beautifully decorated. The apartment has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a small entrance hall area. I had spent few months in the US, so I had a lot of luggage, but I could barely notice all the bags there. The place also has a fun garden area, where to relax and enjoy the sun. The location was also great as it provided an escape from the more touristy and busy areas of the city, while still being at a walkable distance from the city centre. There was also a bus to the Garden District, so it was relatively easy to get around the city.
Molly and Prescott were both warm, welcoming and incredibly accommodating. Thank you so much! It was great to meet you two (and your dogs!) and good luck with everything!
What a great place to stay in New Orleans! Molly and Prescott's place is exactly as described and just how it looks in the pics, with so many interesting pieces of art, books and other thoughtful things (like the great radio) to make it feel like you're in your own little home.
Unfortunately I didn't actually meet Molly and Prescott -- my unsociable Jazz Fest hours didn't help -- but everything was exactly as they said it would be and they were really flexible about my arrival time.
The house is in a great location too; just a short walk from both the French Quarter and the Fair Grounds. I'd definitely like to stay again next time I'm in NOLA if they'd have me.
Oh, the only little thing -- and this is in the description -- is the wifi is a little temperamental. But, you know, you're on holiday so forget the email for a few days. ;)
My stay was absolutely wonderful. I felt so welcome and at home. I was in town for the New Orleans Ironman triathlon and I honestly feel a huge part of my success during the race had a lot to do with saying at this wonderful peaceful home. I definitely will be back again. I cannot wait!
