I am a landscape architect who is semi-retired and back in school working on an MFA in creative writing.
The guest house was really clean and tidy. It's a really beautiful place! Barry was very friendly and helped us, she took care of us. She suggested good restaurants and places to go. Her house is in a good neighberhood and we felt safe (we are two women). We would like to stay there again.
Great place and I had nice stay while in Nola. I'd recommend Barry's place!
My stay in New Orleans was an absolute treat, due in large part to having such a phenomenal host in Barry. As soon as I arrived, I was greeted with my keys and she was very friendly, answered any questions I had about the area, the local transportation and the things going on over the St. Patricks Day weekend. The pool house was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the fridge was stocked with complimentary bagels, coffee and juice and she gave plenty of privacy, but was also very helpful and reachable. Thought it was a bit chili for the pool, the hot tub was a treat, the backyard is an outdoor lovers happy place with trees, lounge chairs, a treehouse and more. The most significant anecdote I can convey her generosity with was the fact that we were both headed to the same destination on a Saturday and she was quick to offer a ride so I didn't have to worry about securing a cab. Honestly, couldn't have had a better time, a better host or a better little private spot to call my own for the weekend. I would highly recommend Barry and this rental to anyone looking for an alternative to a hotel in New Orleans.
Barry's little backyard oasis was exactly what my boyfriend and I were looking for. We got there Fat Tuesday Morning (midnight) and walked two miles to Bourbon street. It was not a bad walk at all ((website hidden) says it's a 45 minute walk, we probably walked it in 25-30ish).
Barry had left us with refreshments in the fridge, bagels, and all the bathroom essentials. It was truly a great visit. She gave us our privacy as well. It was raining pretty much the whole week we were there (and cold!) so we didn't take a dip in the pool. (Though my boyfriend and I drunkenly dared each other to do it).
We will definitely be recommending her place to others :)
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.
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!
