John was very nice and helpful! When we arrived he was not there but he made it very easy for us to get in and explained everything very well. He left us a document with tipps where to go which was very helpful! The location is just perfect! You can walk to the french quarter within a few minutes exactly as described! We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely recommend John as a host!
Een goede vriend, een goede accomodatie, perfecte ligging t.o.v.
het centrum, dichtbij openbaar vervoer, tamelijk veilig.
Om mee door te gaan !
We had a great time staying with John. Room with a private bath made for a very comfortable stay. This is a great location about four blocks from Frenchman Street and a little further to the French Quarter. Coffee, tea, cereal and fruit made for a good start to the day. John is very friendly and will make you feel right at home.
We had a great time!!! John is awesome! He gave us very helpful tips on what to do and lots of information about history and the city! We loved the time spent there!!! :)
John (email hidden). We had a very pleasant (email hidden), and it was very convenient to have our own private bathroom. The location was very close to French Quarter and the place was very clean. I would highly recommend (email hidden)!
John was a very kind and accommodating host, he seemed very happy with us at the time. However after we left we got a very abusive email, yes we had other guests in town but no we did not share with them any food or drinks we received from his home, yes there is a way for 3 girls to drink THAT much water. He also said that breakfast was included and even in other reviews has stated that eggs were in the fridge and for people to help themselves, yet after taking advantage of this on one morning he again emailed us say how disrespectful it was for us to help ourselves. John needs to be more clear about which food his hosts can and cannot help themselves to. The email also said that we left the lights on on multiple occasions, if he had simply reminded us on one occasion we would have remembered each day and been more conscious of it. As for the claim on the 4th guest, yes our friends drove down with us and helped us with our luggage inside but on no occasion did any extra guests stay in your house or eat any of your food.
We couldn't have asked for a better experience! We truly enjoyed our stay at John's, it was even better than we were expecting. The room was very clean, nice and cozy and having the private bathroom was simply great. He also had complementary water bottles, coffee and breakfast every morning… Simply great! :-)
Also, John was always sharing his top picks (restaurant/bars/music) with us and we were never disappointed. The location of the house is amazing, you can walk everywhere and anywhere from here and feel very safe. We plan to go back to New Orleans and will hope to stay at John's again for sure!
Had an amazing stay! John is so remarkable nice and couldn't have made it a better trip. Great location and honestly a great safe neighborhood. 4 stars all the way! Stay with John and you're guaranteed a great time.
We really enjoyed staying with John in his awesome Marigny home. We were very warmly received, and stepping into the living room, with horns and band uniforms and photos on display, we felt like we had been ushered right into the mainline of New Orleans culture and living. John is a very friendly and accommodating host, made sure we were properly settled and set up to have a great time, and offered food, drink, and fascinating tales of life in the Crescent City. (We wish we had made it to band practice!) The accommodations were excellent and very comfortable, and the location was perfect for us.
First experience with AIRBNB and couldnt have asked (email hidden)hn is a great communicator. Prompt response to questions prior and during stay. John was helpful in offering suggestions on where to eat and go, especially helpful during our stay during New Years. He truly made us feel at home. Coming in/out was a breeze. Comfortable room. Having own bathroom within room was a major bonus. He has helpful tips posted around the bathroom and kitchen. Would HIGHLY recommend John for your stay in New Orleans. Very walkable to several attractions or less than $10 taxi to hot spots. Thanks Again!
John's a long-distance friend; we met through brass band music. I (email hidden) one weekend, and he has this host thing down. Clean, comfortable, breakfast and other foods available. Super convenient to the FQ while just outside the crazy areas. If you have any issues with the space, he'll solve them. (I let him know about the slow tub drain. I'm sure he's fixed it.)
BONUS: there's a brass band "tumble" just about every week. If you want a true taste of New Orleans, he can provide a percussion item and you can join in.
