Native New Orleanian
Aviva and Carmen were very good hosts. They were easy to contact and the place is easy to find. It's a pretty barebones setup, but just fine for the price. The neighborhood is decent and nearby Satsuma has great coffee and breakfast. If you're looking to go to the CBD, convention center, or French quarter, keep in mind it's an ~$10 cab ride.
The room is indeed cozy and rather bohemian. The neighborhood is cool with quite a few nice restaurants, bars and venues nearby.
For most of our stay we had the house to our selves since neither of the girls live there and the other room wasn't occupied except for a few nights.
The house could be quite a bit cleaner but other than that everything was fine.
Great location for the price. The room adequate for two people. I recommend checking out Crescent Park and Elizabeth's for brunch. The ladies were very flexible with check in/out times. They were responsive to texts. Thanks!
My trip started like a scene from Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. Flooding in Austin delayed my departure by hours. Then my traveling companion's back problems became too acute to ignore, and we had to make a detour so she could get out and stay with family. Then rain ( the same that caused the flooding) followed me across Louisiana. The result: I was more than four hours late getting to NOLA.
These ladies could not have been more gracious even though I certainly disrupted their Halloween night plans. I am grateful for their flexibility.
The place was a lovely microcosm of New Orleans itself - it has survived the decades with determination, grace, and a surplus of charm. Those who prefer shiny new generic accommodations should look elsewhere. Oh - and the alley cats are nice, too.
We only stayed for 1 night but Carmen was very communicative and friendly. Lots of great bars and restaurants in the area. Room and apartment similar to as described.
We had a great stay. Place was quiet and comfortable. Carmen was really nice and helpful. Good price for the location. Relatively close to the French Quarter. Recommended!
Beautiful neighbourhood, lovely apartment. It's a half hour walk into town which may be difficult for some but its just one road and we found it fine. There was another lodger who was nice. The kitchen and bathroom were great and the beds very comfy. New Orleans is stunning and it was good to spend our time in a colourful part of the city.
Megan is a very nice host and she was very helpful! The house was ok and cozy in a very peaceful neighborhood, plus it has a very good restaurant nearby where you can blend with locals. We enjoyed our stay.
Megan was a great host, offering detailed and good quality recommendations as per what to do, eat, see, hear. Her dog won me over, the cutest big puppy in the world.
The bedroom is spacious, quiet and the bed is super comfortable.
I really enjoyed walking most places, the neighbourhood is peaceful and full of interesting and friendly people.
For really delicious, healthy food, juices and good coffee go to Satsuma, 2 min walk and Bacchanal for great wine, live music and excellent dining in a picturesque little courtyard.
On my meanderings I came across countless little vintage stores, wonderful record shops and open artist galleries.
The French Quarter is an easy 15 min walk, however riding a bike would most definitely been the best way to get around.
I found it really hard to leave not only Megan's but New Orleans.
Can't wait to visit again.
Nice room in Megan's home fit my needs perfectly. Near all of my Bywater faves. And thanks to Megan for helping me with some things I couldn't quite manage after I sprained my foot during my stay (fortunately AFTER French Quarter Fest!); much appreciated. :)
Super guest, a pleasure to host. Very appreciative and friendly. Welcome anytime. Thank you very much
Megan was pretty much the raddest guest ever....she didn't throw any wild parties at the house...or if she did she cleaned up really well. Great communication and super friendly. Looking forward to having her here again.
