My mother and I planned to meet in New Orleans for the week - neither of us had ever been before. I found Darleen's guest cottage through airbnb on my first search, as I had never used the site before. Honestly, the cottage was perfect - a calm, quiet respite, a great place to stay after exploring the city each day. Only three blocks from the Magazine bus line, which took us right to the French Quarter and Canal street. And there are plenty of shops and restaurants right there on Magazine too. The cottage was clean and comfortable, with a pull-out couch and a futon, heating/cooling unit, which we used because we had both sunny and cooler, rainy weather. The sink and mini-fridge were great for storing snacks and such through the week. We absolutely loved it!
This place was such a gem! It's only a few blocks from magazine street and the neighborhood was super safe. The street car line is a short walk away and convenient for traveling into the French Quarter. The space accommodated the two of us well and could fit a few more. The hosts were welcoming and available for questions. Loved it.
(Be sure to stop in at Hansen's sno bliz if you stay here! Best treat! It's cash only.)
Very clean and comfortable & Darleen was super friendly and helpful. Even when I dropped the ball on printing tickets to an event she helped me out. Delicious pastries waiting & a courtyard of cats added to the charm.
Location is ok - nearby Magazine St. has nice shops and restaurants. it's a bit of a trek to the streetcar, made longer by the construction happening on the blocks near the guest house, you can almost walk to the Garden district just as quickly. But, relatively convenient street car access will take you right into the quarter or over to the zoo. Cabs to the Quarter are $15 or so for 2 people, streetcar is $3 per person per day. The walk is pretty.
Walked around the neighborhood in all times of day & night and felt safe.
In short, nice, comfortable place, super nice people, good if you like walking.
Darleen's guest house is great! Very clean, nicely decorated, and it has a beautiful little yard in front with a small pond and a couple resident yard cats. My two friends and I were all very pleased. I would highly recommend!
This little guest house is darling and a perfect fit for 1-2 guests. It could be a little tight for larger parties. We found that the most comfortable sleeping option was to take the futon mattress and put it on top of the pull out sofa bed. The amenities were great - we especially appreciated the electric kettle and mini fridge.
The courtyard on the property is gorgeous and we loved seeing the outdoor cats. If you're afraid of cats or dislike them I wouldn't recommend staying here since you'd be seeing them frequently.
This location is fantastic! Don't miss Dick and Jenny's just a few blocks away, and the Rouse's market is right there as well for anything you need. Magazine street is very close by with tons of shopping and dining. We had no problem at all finding parking at any time day or night. If you don't have a rental car the 11 bus is just a few blocks away.
I had a great stay with Darleen. The house was nice and cozy with basic ammenities needed for a pleasent vacation. She was very accomadating and hospitable. I would recommend staying here.
Darleen's place was wonderful--definitely a great example of New Orleans charm (which my friends from out of town definitely enjoyed!). A great location and homey atmosphere, everything was fantastic with our stay! I'd definitely recommend this bnb to friends for future visits. :)
This is a classy studio in a convenient location. I found it spotlessly clean when I arrived, despite the departure of another guest just a few hours previously. You can expect great lighting, a decently comfy pull-out sofa mattress (nothing special, but it's a sofa mattress after all), collection of fantastic books for your browsing, and perhaps even a surprise box of danish waiting for you for breakfast, which I really enjoyed. Didn't speak much to Darleen, but her husband kindly met me in the guest house and explained the space, the area, and even told me a little about when he did. It's always nice to meet the owners, and I certainly appreciated the hospitality. No complaints - just a nice, clean space at a fair price.
Just as pictured, a studio guesthouse behind the main house. Very close to Magazine Street, Napoleon, and St. Charles street car. Street car makes it easy to get to the French Quarter. Walking distance to Tipitina's. Quiet and comfortable. We would stay here again.
Very gracious hosts. The pastries were amazing. I found it to be a bit too far from the action (~hour bus wait & ride) where my friends were so I ended up staying at friends' hotel a couple of the nights for proximity to downtown. In subsequent trips I would stay here and just explore more locally (Magazine has great food and cute little shops I didn't have much time for) but we had a conference I had to attend during the day.
The unit was as advertised; clean, soft pullout bed, close to magazine street restaurants, internet, etc. I didn't see a place to hang clothes or an iron. They have a mini split AC that cools the unit fast ;) There is a mini fridge & freezer.
Other tips - the E2 Jefferson transit bus from the airport gets you to Tulane/Loyola on weekdays (and Tulane/Carrollton on weekends) and then you can take the #11 RTA bus from Canal & Camp down Magazine to get to this hosts' property. Takes a long time but cost $5 instead of $33 for a taxi.
Also, bring or buy shampoo/body wash/bar of soap. I had forgotten these things. There is a cute grocery store 4 blocks from this place to stock up the kitchen and any forgotten items.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
