I had a wonderful first visit to New Orleans! Jo Anne and Dan were very welcoming and extremely helpful. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful, and the room very charming. Everything was just perfect. I really enjoyed my stay and hope to be back soon.
We had an absolutely wonderful stay. Dan and Jo Anne were such friendly and welcoming hosts. The suite had everything we could ask for and we would recommend it to anyone.
Our hosts were very friendly and gracious. They let us check in early as our flight arrived early, and showed us around. As we were in New Orleans for a family celebration, we didn't need much in the way of tourist information, but they have lots of NOLA tourism books available in the suite.
The location was perfect for us, near our son, Audubon Park and Magazine St.
This is our second time w/ Dan & JoAnne and we'll be coming back again. The place is as lovely, warm and inviting as are they.
It was my first time in New Orleans and I absolutely adored it! This was a great home base and they gave me some stellar suggestions for places to check out. Would definitely stay here again!
Lovely spacious and well-appointed suite (1 bed/sitting room, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom) with very comfy beds. Dan and Jo Anne were very helpful with recommendations for local restaurants and provided some valued extra amenities (local books, printed boarding passes, etc). Neighbourhood is quiet and feels safe. 20 - 25 min to airport (fixed taxi rate for 2 is $33) and about $25 taxi ride from downtown/French Quarter.
Great place, location and hosts. We will go back!
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at The Pearl at Riverbend! Dan and Jo Anne are wonderful hosts. Their home has been beautifully restored and retains it's historic charm. The accommodations were spacious, spotless, and extremely comfortable. This is a wonderful location, with lots of options for dining within walking distance. The trolley on St. Charles is steps away. Thank you to our hosts for thinking of everything. There was even a new toothbrush and dental floss just in case we forgot ours. Wonderful bedding, quiet location, nice neighborhood. The only issue I would mention is that you have to walk through the second bedroom to get to the bathroom in the middle of the night. This is worth noting if privacy is an issue. This is normal in New Orleans Shotgun style homes, but might be a surprise to folks from other parts of the country. Do not hesitate to book your lodging with Dan and JoAnne. Fabulous!
Jo Anne was a great hostess! Very accommodating and welcoming. We arrived late, nearly midnight and she stayed up to wait for us. Once we arrived she offered us wine and gave us the inside scoop on Mardi Gras! She was always available for us to ask questions, but gave us our complete space and privacy. Her home is amazing and gorgeous! Super comfortable for 3 girls, could have fit 4 girls if needed. Bathroom was so clean and well kept, she even stocked shampoo and other toiletries just in case. Coffee machine and small fridge was also available. If we go back we are definitely going to stay with Jo Ann. Thanks for a great trip.
Our stay at The Pearl was just wonderful! From the time I first found the property and reached out with a few questions to the moment we left, everything was great. Dan and Jo Anne were so welcoming and eager to give local insight to what we should do, where we should eat etc. The property was beautiful and impeccably clean. We could not have been happier with the overall experience. I absolutely recommend The Pearl to travelers. You won't be disappointed!
Experienced airbnb hosts visiting from New Orleans for a wedding. I met them briefly on their arrival & they left the cottage in great shape! Hope they can come back some time & that I can visit their place in New Orleans!
Jo Anne is one of the sweetest people I know. Her house is charming and in a great location. She is an excellent tour guide and is extremely generous. I am looking forward to staying at her place the next time I am down in NOLA.
Dan and Jo Anne are close friends. Their accommodations are just lovely, truly a remarkable renovation 5 years ago. Their home is located in a safe and friendly neighborhood 1 block from the Street Car line. I highly recommend this property for anyone who wants a comfortable local experience of staying in a traditional double shot gun style home in one of the most beautiful sections of New Orleans, Uptown.
My husband stayed at Dan & Jo Anne's house last October (2011). The home is kept impeccably, the entrance is separate and the neighborhood is fantastic. Many wonderful sites and restaurants are walkable, they're close to the streetcar on St. Charles, and they are helpful in recommending anything a guest would want during their New Orleans experience! They're both so knowledgeable and hospitable, after we moved here in December I've recommended it to many friends & family members as a place to stay when they visit. It's an affordable way to visit this amazing city, and a more personable and fun way than at an infinitely more expensive and impersonal hotel. My husband left a 5-star review when he stayed there, and they're now dear friends. I can't recommend The Pearl enough.
I feel very comfortable recommending Dan and JoAnne as your future hosts: I work with Dan and know him as a very honest person. He is very conscientious. We became friends after he and Jo-Anne invited us to our first Mardi Gras Ball. My husband and I enjoy to be home, and we are not party goes, but let San and Jo-Anne say the word, and we are game. Dan and JoAnne are wonderful friends, generous and fun to be around. They never seem to lack energy. They are a gold mine as they know everything there is to know about the city. History, fun places to see, events... And they like to share their love for New Orleans: I know this first hand because I moved from France to New Orleans. Dan and Jo-Anne have introduced me to the Mardi Gras Balls, the parades, the food...
The house has been renovated by this dynamic couple with a great sense of detail and with respect to the history of their house. As it is a big double shotgun house, Dan and Jo-Anne decided half of the house would be more than enough space for both of them and Pearl, their sweet dog. They decided to open their beautiful home to guests, which is pretty easy to do with a double shot gun home, a typical Uptown New Orleans house, with a separate entrance: I think it is wonderful to offer people from other places the "shotgun experience". There is a distinctive cachet to it. The high ceilings let you breathe. The wood floors are warm and beautiful. The rental place is not only spotless and comfortable, but it is also furnished and decorated with great taste. The proximity to St. Charles Avenue makes it very convenient to hop on the street car to see the beautiful houses alongside St. Charles Avenue and get to the French Quarter.
Dan and JoAnne are the most exquisite hosts. There house is gorgeous and sits in a prime location. So don’t hesitate and choose the Pearl!
Dan and JoAnne were my neighbors several years ago, and will forever be my friends! They are some of the most caring, thoughtful people I know. Their house is extremely comfortable, conveniently located, and maintained at hotel-like standards. You will miss out if you don't meet these fine folks and stay in their lovely home!
I have been their guest and would recommend The Pearl at Riverbend to anyone looking to enjoy New Orleans from their comfortable and immaculate house that is just one block off St. Charles. There is the added bonus of many local restaurants (Jamila's is really great!), coffee shops and bars within easy walking distance of their home. Relax and enjoy!
Dan and JoAnne are the sweetest people that I know! Having spent several nights in their home, I can attest to the highest level of comfort, accommodations, and travel recommendations! Dan and JoAnne definitely receive 5 stars in my book.
