I am a landscape architect who is semi-retired and back in school working on an MFA in creative writing.
Barry & her guest home were absolutely perfect for what we needed! Close to everything via cab ride, the cottage was clean and well maintained, and we had all the privacy of home. Thanks so much Barry, we will be back!
Barry was great, the neighbourhood great, bed was very comfortable and room was clean and cozy. Really enjoyed our time in New Orleans thanks to the help of Barry. She was above and beyond helpful. The hot tub was fantastic to use, just requires a little advanced planning with Barry and should be notes that there is a dog but of no concern. Really fantastic air bnb option.
Barry's place was amazing. So quiet and just the right amount of space for me. I wish it would've been warm enough to swim in her great pool. It's not a bad walk to the quarter and there is a bus close by too.
She was very nice and the main house looked cool. She was very helpful in letting me use her phone one day when I lost my phone and it was very instrumental in helping me get it back.
I only wish her place was avail for Mardi Gras!
Barry was amazing! She is super nice and accommodating. She left breakfast food for us in the fridge! The place is super comfortable and the pool is amazing. We are definitely coming back!
Barry was great. Very friendly and helpful. The place was perfect and clean. Thanks again
Barry was a great host for our first trip to New Orleans. The pool house was very comfortable and the fridge was stocked with breakfast food which was a nice touch. Barry was attentive to our needs but also gave us our privacy. We really enjoyed the oasis that is Barry's backyard and couldn't resist taking a few dips in the pool. We stumbled upon many favourite local restaurants in the neighbourhood, Cafe Degas, Liuzza by the Track and McHardy's!! I would reccomend Barry's place and hope to visit her again.
Great location, wonderful host, another successful NOLA weekend.
Barry was a very gracious host! Very easy to communicate with and gave us our privacy but checked in on us several time to make sure we had everything we needed. She was very informative of the area and gave us several good tips. The guest house was perfect for us. Clean and comfortable with all the needed amenities. Easy commute to the French Quarter. Taxi is only $10 but we also rode the bus and trolly as they too are not far away. Great coffee house and Italian restaurant right down the road in a quiet and safe neighborhood. I highly recommend Barry's guest house!
Barry was a perfect host! The place was in excellent condition and she even had bagels and juice for us on our first morning. We were out and about quite a lot, but when we had the chance to visit with her, she was very pleasant and easy to speak to. The location was also really great - super close to coffee shops, restaurants and a grocery store. I highly recommend this place!
I live in New Orleans and reserved Barry's place for my dad, who was coming to visit for a few days. We couldn't have asked for a better place! The pool house has everything you could need- (stocked) fridge, AC, comfy bed and couch, a bathroom with all the amenities. Even a hot coil if you want to cook for yourself! Everything was clean, well organized and easy to access.
The pool and courtyard serve as your own little private shangri la and Barry is generous with the space, letting me and a friend cool off there as well. She's friendly, interesting and great to talk to, but not omnipresent, so you just feel like you're doing your own thing with a gracious host.
PLUS the neighborhood is the best- close to the park, the bayou and the little cluster of restaurants ands shops on Esplanade Ave, the Fairgrounds neighborhood is removed from the chaos of the quarter and the "scene" of downtown, but easily accessible to both.
Barry lives right across the street from me and we've been friends for over 3 years. She is a wonderful and gracious human being and has a great guest house. I highly recommend her place. You won't regret it!
