The cottage was a perfect size for myself and my husband. It was clean, private, and had plenty of towels & dishes. Location was nice and we really enjoyed the town of Bay St. Louis which had a nice downtown area, harbor, beaches, good restaurants, and cute shops. We took a trip to West Ship Island out of Gulfport which had great beaches and a old fort to explore. Also, Bay St Louis has a casino and is only one hour drive to New Orleans.
Bonnie was a very gracious host and available if we needed anything. The only downside was that it did not have wifi or good TV reception. But we brought our own hot spot and who needs TV at the beach. I would definitely recommend this property and would stay there again.
Great little spot that is nice walk from the heart of the town.
Very clean and the pictures represent the space well.
The process went very smoothly and Bonnie answered all questions timely.
Thanks for the nice review! Hope you enjoyed your stay.
Bonnie's cottage was perfect for our weekend getaway. It was immaculate and spacious. It's within walking distance to shops, cafes, restaurants, and the beach. We enjoyed relaxing in the coolness of the cottage and watching a DVD from her collection after a day of exploring the small towns in the area, taking a walk through a bayou, and lounging in the warm gulf waters of the beach. Bonnie was an exceptional host. She left us some snacks to welcome us. She responded quickly to my questions and accommodated our request to book the day of our arrival.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Vicky!
Bonnie is a very nice person and she keeps her house immaculate. The master bedroom is at the very front of the house, which is in a quiet and affluent Uptown neighborhood. Around the corner is a breakfast/lunch place called Riccobono's Panola Street Cafe, (7801 Panola Street, New Orleans, LA) which serves breakfast and lunch. This place is so great that it's worth staying at Bonnie's just for that.
By the by, Bonnie has amazing taste. The photos don't do it justice. Lovely old photos and wall decorations. You won't find such a charming and tasteful space short of a very expensive boutique hotel. Five stars!
Thank you, Benjamin! I appreciate the wonderful review!
My weekend at Bonnie's place was amazing! I took my parents to NOLA for Jazzfest and the overall experience was incredible. The neighborhood was really pretty and within close driving distance of some really great restaurants, Jazzfest, the quarter and magazine street. Close enough, but far enough away to get some real relaxation. We found ourselves on the porch drinking coffee in the mornings and after going out and about, we'd watch movies on Netflix in the living room late night. Though Bonnie was out of town during our stay, communication was great, and she left all kinds of treats and towels for our use. The place was very clean and beautifully decorated with art and wood. I would stay here again and highly recommend staying here for anyone considering.
Bonnie’s place was fantastic. I stayed at her place during Mardi Gras with 3 friends of mine and she did everything she could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We were welcomed with Beer and other stuff to snack on. The place also has a coffee machine and an ice maker. Her house is located in a very safe neighborhood and just a few blocks from Street Car that will take you to most of the places near French Quarters and Downtown. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was clean with enough supplies of towels. The living room is big enough and has everything one would need.
Bonnie is very friendly and she took time out of her busy schedule to show us around. There is nothing like seeing NOLA with Locals. She even took us to a costume party and for coffee/lunch a couple of times. She is a great person to hang out with and I highly recommend her place.
Bonnie is a genuine, respectable and lovely host. She made me feel welcome and was very accommodating. it was great to have two rooms - a tv room and bedroom. I am grateful to have met Bonnie.
Bonnie is a lovely host and her home in Uptown is an oasis. She has thoughtfully arranged each detail for your comfort and even with a 6 month old baby we were completely comfortable and able to function as if we were at home.
Her communication is timely yet you are not "hovered" over as she wrote in her bio - you do feel as if this is your home away from home.
friendly street and excellent cafe on Panola for any craving you seek.
highly recommended for business or pleasure.
Bonnie's home is very cozy. It is a retreat. There is a little porch in the front, a very peaceful bedroom, an awesome "living room", and a decent bathroom. There is street parking right in front.
She communicates frequently and gives thorough instruction.
The bed is comfortable and good for 1 or a very cozy 2. The livingroom couches are wide and comfortable and could accompany 2 more in a pinch. However, plan for a retreat, not a party zone.
The air conditioning is good and there are ceiling fans.
I discovered during my last hours there that the tv was all hooked up to many viewing options and the stereo capability was very nice. What a great place to hang out and relax. I am not sure if there was internet access, but I suspect that it was there. I just didn't need it.
The place is sparkling clean. The bathroom is clean and bright, nothing fancy. There are a lot of bathroom accessories. It might be good to ask her what is for guests to use before poking around. There is a decent bathtub and a tall shower head, with water pressure that is not bad for an old home.
I particularly loved being able to walk to at least two awesome breakfast places. It is an easy cab ride or long walk down to Oak Street for even more dining and shopping options. There are some awesome old cemeteries nearby. It is a fairly safe neighborhood with a mix of interesting homes.
Bonnie left some wonderful drinks and treats and some fun background information on the jazz fest. There are dozens of books of all sorts.
If you are the eclectic type who needs a peaceful, comforting retreat, this is your place. But, you might be competing with me for the spot!
Bonnie's place is just great. We spent a lot of time on the front porch, and her book of ideas and instructions was really a plus. I would go back any time!
Bonnie and I play music together with the Pair-o-Dice Tumblers and with a few other groups. She is funny, smart, witty and open. Saying she is easy to talk to is an understatement - she is one of the most friendly people I know, and just being around her is exciting and fun. Super gal - and I bet you will think so, too!
I've known Bonnie for years and I can say from first hand experience that her hospitality will have you wanting to go back.
I have known Bonnie for many years and had the privilege of staying at her place. She was a natural host and took time to show me arround the area too. Bonnie is a person you can be comfortable around... A great host!
I've known Bonnie for 8 years. She's warm, funny, and really knows how to enjoy life. As a host, she wants to help people enjoy the city.
Bonnie is more family than friend... We've known each other for over 10 years.. she's a very sweet n kind person. Her guest rooms and house are awesome and located very convenient to the beach and an hour to the French Quarter in New Orleans..
I met Bonnie in 2007 when I took an awesome Permaculture course that she co-taught in New Orleans via Tulane University. We share a passion for gardening as well as the arts. Bonnie also rented a Mid-City apartment from me in 2009 and was an excellent tenant. She is kind, considerate and always paid rent promptly.
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of staying with my friend of over 15 years...in the room she has opened up for others to stay!! The space here on Airbnb is charming, comfortable, quiet and convenient to a wonderful city, full of memories that are waiting to be made!!
When we arrived we opened a bottle of wine and enjoyed great laughs!! If you meet Bonnie, you will soon realize that she has a great sense of humor and is so kind!! She knows the best places for music, food and entertainment in the area!!
After a couple of hours on the porch, she took me to a great, local restaurant, a wonderful venue for music and ultimately, the french quarter!!
Bonnie is a gem and her room/house is simply fantastic!!! I would encourage you all to get to New Orleans and experience it's wonderful "Joi de Vivre"...in a wonderful house, with a room that is complete with all the modern amenities and added thoughtful little extras!!!
Can't wait to go back!!!
