Great host and Julia, Richard's assistant, was extremely warm and helpful. The place was exactly as described and was very nice to get some OJ and english muffins in the fridge when we arrived. The area is nice, especially if you walk from the the house towards city park (very beautiful). Close to major bus and streetcar routes. Great place and would stay there again if/when I come back to NOLA.
The pictures don't do the place justice! It's a small, beautiful garden apartment that was perfect for what my friends and I wanted to do. It's well situated between the City Park, for museum lovers, and the French Quarter. We had no trouble getting places, the bus is close and the phone number for United Cab was handily left on the table for us! There were eggs, coffee, creamer, juice, and english muffins. We're so grateful to have found such a nice place for our short stay. Definitely would stay there again.
Thanks to Richard....It was a Great authentic stay in New Orleans. His assistant welcomes us and shows the house. The dogs was lovely. We don't met Richard in Person, but our stay was comfortely. Would everytime stay again. neighborhood was quiet and close to French Quarter.
Fantastic place to stay. Perfect for my husband and I. Never had problem finding a spot to park. The home is welcoming and so charming. Would absolutely stay here again.
We second the motion of the other reviewers - this place is great! We were welcomed by Richard and by his assistant, Julia, both of whom gave us a complete rundown of the house and its many charms AND offered suggestions for our stay in New Orleans which made our time there incredibly enjoyable. The location is convenient for making excursions into the several fascinating neighborhoods of the city (Garden District, Fauborg-Marigny, etc.). I don't see how we could have had a better time. Thank you, Richard and Julia!
It was a quaint, cozy, authentic New Orleans get away. Great neighborhood, easy walking or transportation options. I would definitely book again.
We arrived at night after a long day of travel so we were pleased at how welcome we felt. The owner had thoughtfully provided COFFEE, muffins, juice, butter & cream cheese. The gas fireplace was going so the place was warm and cozy even though it was a cold night in N.O. The location is perfect -- easy walking distance to the Quarter, City Park, and bus stops. Comfortable bed, nice shower/tub, attractive living room, wifi, and TV. We will be back!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in New Orleans. Richard is a marvelous host and readily available next door with advice or assistance. The bywater area is outside of the French Quarter, but has several cool restaurants within walking distance. This was the perfect place for us and our daughter since there were two individual rooms for privacy. Bonus, the kitchen was nice for comfort and convenience. We would stay there again.
The apartment was a great landing pad for us during our stay. Easy street parking, and a short drive from the Quarter. The on site hostess was very welcoming and helped us with all of our questions about the house. Huge plus to have a washer/ dryer. It is a modest/ cozy space. We loved it!
Richard was a great host. Two couples were coming from different directions. He gave us good direction, helped unload suitcases and provided English muffins and other condiments for our arrival. The house was roomy, well furnished and comfortable. The best thing about staying in Richard's house was it provided a feeling of how it would be to live in New Orleans. The house was over 100 years old, with huge windows, very high ceilings and original wooden floors. A stroll through the friendly neighborhood provided a glance at life near the Quarter, neighbors sitting at tables around a corner store, and gently used clothing stores which had a little of everything. Thanks Richard.
Es muy culto, educado, limpio y sobretodo muy popular, tranquilo y no es exigente. Le gusta la cultura del lugar , no fuma y no toma alcohol.
Only on a short stay (one short night before heading for the airport). Will have no problem hosting again Richard and his party in the future.
