Wonderful host! The room was cozy and felt like home away from home on our family vacation. Hosts were accommodating and friendly, and kept in good contact about any issues needing sorting out. Thank you!
Marie and Raphael were great hosts, and their place is beautiful and eclectic (just like in the pictures). We especially loved the back patio area. The Bywater area had several fun restaurants and bars that my boyfriend and I enjoyed checking out. I would say that if you are a female staying by yourself, you will likely want to take cabs when you go out at night, as we heard from many people that it is not safe to walk alone in that area at night. I would recommend this listing if you are looking for a neighborhood feel on your visit to NOLA. Thanks for the great stay, Marie and Raphael!
Marie and Raphael were wonderful hosts, very responsive and friendly. We had a great time staying in their guest house! The shotgun-style house is beautifully appointed, with a very comfy bed, amazing kitchen, lots of nice art, and a cozy, secluded deck in the backyard. The house was much bigger than it looked in pictures. They have a quiet spot in the vibrant, up-and-coming Bywater neighborhood - walk down any street and you'll stumble upon great food and drink, art galleries, and live music. It's a fairly short walk (or quick drive) to the Marigny for stellar jazz clubs, and just a few blocks more to the French Quarter. We'd love to stay with them again next time we're in New Orleans!
Marie and Raphael offer a true insider stay in New Orleans. They are the excellent hosts, offering recommendations tailored to your needs, attentive and not intrusive. There cozy and eclectic apartment is even much larger then it appears online. We would recommend renting a bike or car while staying here. For sure take in one of Raphael music venues!
This was the perfect place to come home to and wake up at. Clean comfortable, and private. The local neighborhood was great, but if the French Quarter is what you want then you can get there easily and cheap. The bus cost about 1.50 a ride and the cabs were never more than 10 bucks.
A great place to stay! Highly recommend!
Cet endroit est charmant et reposant ;nous finissions notre séjour aux USA par new orleans et le choix fut judicieux ; le quartier est sympa ;vivant tout le monde dit bonjour ; on se croyait presque dans notre île ; le coin jardin est des plus agréable ; après l"agitation de la ville la maison était un vrai bonheur; marie et raphael sont des gens charmants ; on reviendra ; notre séjour était trop court ¨.Merci à vous
