Very charming and historic neighborhood with plenty of unique shops, restaurants, and historic homes. Easy access to other parts of town.
Public transport (buses) is just a few blocks away; streetcar access on St. Charles is about 8 blocks away.
Nothing but satisfied with everything from the location to the privacy. Everything about this adorable little guest house was perfect. Very inviting and the place including all of the essentials. It was all around a beautiful weekend, Darleen and Michael's Hosting made it that much better. We cannot thank you enough for a great experience.
We loved the cozy cottage feeling of the place, the privacy, and the small courtyard we shared with the hosts, which included a water feature and resident cats. There were some cleanliness issues with the floors and kitchen.
Darleen and Mike were unobtrusive but genial hosts. Because Darleen is unavailable during the day, immediate communication is not possible.
The neighborhood was charming, and looks like it is still being "gentrified". The biggest drawback was a very long walk (at least a dozen blocks) to the St. Charles streetcar--the main way to get to tourist attractions each day.
I was very disappointed in reading Wendy's review. I spent quite a bit of time communicating with her before her arrival, answering specific questions she had about restaurants and researching places to go for her. Additionally, I spent a long time chatting with her to see if everything was going well and she said that it was. We take pride in the cleanliness of our guesthouse, so I was really surprised that she had an issue. Maybe she tracked pollen and dirt into the guesthouse herself and didn't notice? Also, our neighborhood has been repeatedly written about in the New York Times and other national publications as being one of the most popular in the city, so I was very surprised to see that she felt it was "in the process of being gentrified". We love our neighborhood, and I wouldn't live anywhere else in New Orleans. Finally, I am available during the day. As Wendy admitted to me, she was texting me on my home phone instead of my cell phone, so the texts were not going through. Additionally, I do not consider a 10 block (5 minute) walk to the streetcar to be very long, and I make it clear in the listing that it's a 10 block walk.
Sehr nette und unkomplizierte Gastgeber, problemlose Kommunikation, leckere Croissants zur Begrüßung, Kinderspielzeug und Kinderreisebett vorhanden. Die Unterkunft war wie beschrieben, hübsch eingerichtet, ruhig gelegen. Sehr nettes Wohnviertel, man kann zur Magazine Street (Restaurants und Boutiquen) und auch Charles Ave (Street Car) laufen. Zum Schlafen sind eine Ausziehcouch und ein Klapp-Futon vorhanden, die leider nicht ganz so bequem wie ein richtiges Bett sind. Trotzdem haben wir uns sehr wohlgefühlt und würden das Studio weiter empfehlen!
Darleen's place is exactly as described. Lots of room to spread out, incredible location and overall a really nice place to for your next stay in NOLA.
The Studio Guest House was a cozy and clean space to stay for a few days, and the backyard was positively zen-like. As others have mentioned, there were delicious pastries from Boulangerie waiting for me when I arrived, and I had plenty of privacy during my stay (I was in town for work and the guest house converted nicely into a little home office). The only thing I would warn more finicky folks about is that the futon mattress is a bit thin, so if you have back problems this may not be the place for you. Otherwise, I had a lovely stay & felt very at home here!
Darleen and her husband were welcoming, laid back and organised hosts. The guesthouse is perfect- well equipped and comfortable. The area is wonderful- a short trip either by bus or the St Charles street car through the garden district to the french quarter (equally- its walkable if you have time) and there are lots of great restaurants right on Magazine St a few minutes away. A great base to explore NOLA from!
Darlene was not there to greet us, but a box of delicious pastries were! Darlene was prompt in answering our e-mail the morning of our trip to give us instructions in case she wasn't there when we arrived. We had the pleasure of meeting her husband who provided us with several recommendations for local food. Magazine St (just two blocks over) did not disappoint. Surrey's for breakfast was GREAT, McClure's BBQ and Arana were both yummy dinner spots. Fun drinks at Dat Dog-- all this outside the French Quarter!
The cottage was very clean and nicely decorated, well equipped with extra blankets, and offered many amenities in case you forgot any toiletries. The pull out couch (which we slept on) was not as uncomfortable as we feared and for the great price, we really can't complain. We found the place very accessible, as long as you're comfortable getting around on foot/public transportation. We took the bus Saturday morning and rented bikes from a spot on Dauphine. Used those to get around and back to the cottage that night. Sunday morning we biked to the audobon park and then returned them before spending the day in the quarter and taking a street car back to the magazine street area. Lots of walking but that was helpful considering how much great food and drinks we enjoyed!
Thanks again to the Mipros for a great birthday weekend!
