Nous avons adoré notre séjour à la nouvelle orléan .Nick nous a aidé à trouver la meilleure compagnie pour visiter les bayous. We enjoyed our stay in new Orleans and look foward to go back.
Nick and Kevin were excellent hosts, and their gorgeous apartment was in an ideal location to explore the city. They run the restaurant downstairs, which made a great spot for drinks/light food at the end of the night. The Bywater neighborhood is beautiful - lots of cute, colorful houses, friendly locals, the nearby park on the river, and plenty of restaurants. Walking to Frenchman or the Quarter was also very doable. We wanted to get away from the tourist traps of NOLA, and this was the perfect place to do so.
We really enjoyed our visit to NOLA and part of this excellent experience is due to our stay at Nick's Tropical Life house. The room is large, very nice, bright and both the room and the bathroom, next to the room's door, are very clean. The bed is very comfy and made it hard to wake up in the morning!
The neighborhood is great, we can not imagine a better and more authentic place in New Orleans to stay. The house is placed in a beautiful area close to different restaurants, cafes, etc. Our walk to Marigny and French Quarter, very near, was beautiful and enjoyable everyday.
We definitely recommend this place!
Spacious and clean room and bathroom. Excellent neighborhood with many places to eat in walking distance. Park is two blocks, great for jogging. Nick was good host and I would stay again when visiting NOLA.
Nick's place was absolutely amazing, they were lovely hosts, and were able to help with anything i needed. Their home is close to everything, (i'd recommend bikes as one of the best ways to get around the city), impeccably clean and especially well decorated. Plus the restaurant downstairs is brilliant, the food is to die for.
We had a great time in New Orleans and at Nick & Kevin's place. It was very clean, conveniently located. Bywater is a great location, less than a 30 minute walk from the French Quarter, with lots to see and do nearby. Nick & Kevin were great hosts - and their restaurant downstairs was delicious!
My father and I stayed at Nick and Kevin's for a week. It was a very nice, comfy, clean place to come home to after long days discovering NOLA and it's surroundings. Nick and Kevin could help us with any question we had (renting bikes/car, restaurants, Grand Isle, etc). The restaurant below is great to hang out with delicious foods and a nice staff. When coming to NOLA this is the place to be!
Located in Bywater a bohemian artist enclave that has the best of NOLA in a few square blocks. Nick's place is clean, modern, well appointed with books, magazines and guides to the NOLA that most tourists would never find.( or attempt to find). There is ample street parking if you have a car. If no car the #5 bus stops right in front and takes you to the French Market area in 10 minutes.
In the same building is a restaurant "Booty" that is a rare find unto itself.
Will never stay anyplace else when I come back.
Loved staying in this beautiful home in Bywater. It was comfortable, clean, charming, and in a great location. Nick is so sweet and helpful!
Nick and Kevin were great hosts!
Nick and Kevin were great guest . All went super well :)
Nick and his friend Chris were perfect guests: extremely nice, laid back, left the rooms perfect. Here in NOLA to open a restaurant (wish I had the name so I could plug it!) Come to the Bywater when you are in New Orleans, his place will be in the heart of this bustling neighborhood just outside the French Quarter. It's on Dauphine and Louisa and looks to be fabulous. When he is coming to your city know that you'll have a respectful and charming guest...don't hesitate to accept!
I met Nick several years ago in Seattle while I was on tour with a couple of buddies. He and his partner Kevin were gracious enough to host us for a few memorable days. Nick showed us around a bit, took us to a some hip restaurants, cafes and few great bars. Him and Kevin even took us to Haunted House Miniature Golf... so much fun! Over the years I've been fortunate enough to bump into him in random cities while traveling and still, he's always so kind and generous. I'm glad to call him a friend.
I'm a big fan of Nick. He's inspiring, polite and all around pretty awesome.
Nick was an amazing force in Seattle who is missed! He was/is a visionary who fights for better life experiences for all.... Nick is incredibly generous with his time, talents and expertise and is a person I trust implicitly. Nick is a mentor and a friend... You can 150% count on him to take care of you!
I have known Nick and his family since grade school. He is great host and fun individual---I could not recommend someone more. We would frequently connect when he traveled to NYC when I lived there, as I would visit him when he lived in Brooklyn. I stayed with him a couple of different times, and always had a wonderful time playing board games, sight-seeing, shopping, and having mini-adventures in the city. Awesome dude!
Nick is awesome and has super good taste; I've known him for many years and visited him in various living spaces, and the spaces are always aesthetically interesting, with keen attention to detail. He moves in fun crowds too, so definitely stay at his place and make him take you out. Unicorn Booty!
