Michael is the perfect host! We loved the location and had a wonderful time!
First time in New Orleans and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Michael is very sweet and helped my friend and I feel very welcomed. Highly recommended!
The description was very accurate- a fantastic location just steps away from the French Quarter! Michael went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and welcome, and the little things he put effort into (such as his guide to an awesome walking tour of the quarter) make a huge difference. The house is decorated in an adorable way, and would be ideal to accommodate a couple. As a guest you have access to the full kitchen, but there are so many nearby resturaunts and cafés that finding time to eat in might be difficult! Jackson square is about a ten minute walk. For the price, there's no better place to stay when visiting New Orleans!
Michaels places is a stones throw from Frenchmen's street. It's the perfect location for music lovers alike. His place is as described, a lovely little two storey cottage in a one store home. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Michael!
This was my first time using Air BnB, although we travel to New Orleans quite a bit. We usually stay right in the Quarter so we really enjoyed Michael's location allowing us to explore Frenchmen St, but still walk to all of our favorite restaurants, bars, and shops in the Quarter.
The rooms were clean and comfortably furnished, and Michael provided everything that we needed during our stay. I really enjoyed the historical charm of the 140 year old Victorian house, and we would definitely stay with Michael again. :)
Thank you for your business -
Michael's house was perfectly located to explore the French quarter. We walked around in peace knowing that our car was safely parked in the private courtyard. Michael is a very attentive host. We had a most comfortable stay and would not hesitate to stay there again during our next visit.
Très bon accueil, Michael est un hôte discret et à l'écoute. L'appartement est très bien placé, tout à proximité du quartier français, calme, indépendant, propre, petit mais très fonctionnel, avec possibilité de garer son véhicule, nous recommandons cette adresse.
Thank you for your business -
It's a long way from France but Come back!!!!
Fabulous location is not an exaggeration. Michael's place is a short walk to Frenchman Street with restaurants and entertainment, close to the French Market, close to several great neighborhood breakfast and lunch places. An easy walk to most major tourist locations in the French Quarter, and close to the Riverfront Streetcar that will take you anywhere you want to go (only 40 cents for seniors!) Safe off-street parking. It was very quiet. Never heard a peep from Michael. He offers a coffee maker, bottled water, use of a microwave and refrigerator. It was very clean with well-supplied linens and bedding. It is tiny - small living area and upstairs sleeping loft and narrow bathroom. It is part of a very old building, which he has made into a comfortable if modestly furnished area. The lighting was a little dim - a few more light bulbs would help. A list of local neighborhood breakfast places would have been nice, although we found plenty on our own. Michael was a very gracious and helpful host.
Overall, a great place at the right price for a New Orleans vacation. We'd love to come back.
I truly enjoyed my stay at Michael's. The little living room was adorable, as well as the loft bedroom and bathroom. I really appreciated the privacy and freedom his place offer me and my friend. The rooms are small but cozy, comfortable, clean and very colorful. There are friendly reminders around reminding you to turn of unused lights, etc., as well as Michael's own walking tour of the area.
Michael greeted us with a smile, gave us the keys and the tour and was off - we didn't see him again until we left. We felt like we had our own little apartment to ourselves. The location is amazing! It's right near Frenchman's Street (often people enjoy this street more than Bourbon) and just a 10-15 minute walk to the French Quarter. You can't find a better location for the price. Everywhere else that was close was much more expensive (and certainly not as charming).
You can tell right away that Michael has done this for a long time - he trusts his tenants and lets them go about their business. Also, many tenants leave behind beads, maps, books and other souvenirs that Michael has collected and they are offered freely if you want any of them. There is also a little fridge to store drinks or leftovers. The bathroom was my favorite room with a unique layout, tiling, and colorful towels laid out.
Michael was a gracious, easy-going guy and I would not hesitate to recommend his Air BNB to anyone!
Excellent location near a really cool, less tourist-trappy part of New Orleans!
Mike was an excellent host who generally kept to himself, but was available for any problems that might arise. The room would be best described as a loft studio, and it was clean and well kept, with informative signs about the city and neighborhood. We decided to do "Mike's fabulous walking tour" and it turned out to be a pretty great way to get to know the city, especially the French quarter. I will be happy to try to stay with Mike again if I'm lucky enough to return to the city, and I'll probably be sending some friends to him soon enough.
The real gem of this spot, though, is its location. It's right near Frenchmen street, which has all the live music, art, and whiskey a nightlife-loving person could ask for, as well as a good set of nice cafes. I had friends staying at the other side of the French quarter where the mainstream hotels are, and I honestly felt sorry for them since their impression of the city was radically different given the neighborhood. Unless you are one to insist on the highest-society standards for accommodations, which I doubt since you're using airbnb, you will almost certainly be happy with the hospitality of Mike and the excellent scene in his neighborhood. Highly recommended! Thanks again, Mike.
Duh - my script says - tell them there's cold bottled water in the fridge.
Sorry guys. Come back any time!
