Keith, his family and apartment off of Magazine street were the perfect New Orleans experience. In an ideal location to not be in the french quarter hustle, but with plenty to do and enjoy. The apartment is spacious and private. With a separate kitchen, living room and bedroom there's plenty of space and the finishes and furniture are really modern. When I come back to NOLA, I'll be staying here.
I had a wonderful stay. The spacious living room, comfortable bed, well-equipped bathroom and kitchen were great. Extras like plenty of towels, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and toilet paper meant I didn't need to worry about going out to buy more. The heating was terrific; since I spent most of the day out and about I'd turn the heat way down but when I got back at night it only took a few minutes to bring the whole place into the comfortable zone. The bed was very comfortable with lots of pillow and cover options--important because I sleep cool and my husband gets too warm under blankets that are too thick.
The location was perfect; within short walking distance of many eating and shopping establishments as well as the cable car to the French Quarter.
The listing was just as described and the location couldn't have been better. There was off street Parking and the neighborhood was very quiet. Keith made us feel very welcomed as he greeted us when we arrived and departed from our stay. The place was very cute and clean. They had more than what we could have asked for.
This apt was an absolute perfect landing pad for a visit to New Orleans! Situated among the myriad unique houses for which the Big Easy is well known, literally a half block from the commercial-but-still-local Magazine St, and a few short blocks to the St Charles Ave streetcar, the location cannot be beat. Staying uptown was a quiet and welcome respite from the fun but chaotic days in the French Quarter, and at a much more reasonable cost.
The apt is exactly as the pictures show. Clean and tidy, spacious, bathed in light, and what is not shown -- a lovely back deck with a small table and chairs to enjoy coffee in the morning sun overlooking a fruit tree. The kitchen is fully equipped, including both a dishwasher and clothes washer and dryer. City maps, bus schedules and even local recommendations were available. There were even two bikes for us to use - a perfect way to explore the neighborhood on a ride to nearby Audubon Park (a must see.)
Our host, Keith, was friendly, responsive and available, but also completely respected our privacy.
If you're looking for the craziness and immediate convenience of Bourbon St, this spot probably isn't for you. But if you want a more relaxed and realistic picture of local life, you really can't do better. Great for a couple...
Staying at Monica and Keith's was awesome. I feel like the pictures they have posted don't do their place justice! The apartment has a cute deck in the back and an awesome front yard and cute little backyard. The apartment was clean, well stocked with towels and extra blankets, and even some food and drinks. Even though the space isn't huge, the high ceilings and plenty of windows make it feel open and airy! I almost felt like I was staying in a house, and not in an apartment.
Uptown itself is a fantastic neighborhood, with Le Bon Temps Roule (try your best to catch a show by the Soul Rebels there one night, because it is quintessential New Orleans) and The Kingpin just blocks from the apartment. Magazine Street itself was host to really amazing boutique shopping and awesome restaurants. There's a bus stop on Magazine Street a few blocks from the house that can take you all the way into the French Quarter for $1.25 (or $3.00 for an all day pass). Also, for just a five minute walk north of the apartment, you can ride the antique train car on the historic and absurdly gorgeous St. Charles Avenue. The only gripe I have with Uptown was the lack of cabs in the area (we also didn't have much luck with Uber, but not just with Uptown, but New Orleans as whole).
If you're looking for an authentic New Orleans experience, stay at Keith's and Monica's!
This listing was exactly as described and more than lived up to its amazing reviews.
We arrived late at night with our two young kids and Keith helped us bring our bags inside. We were hungry and tired, so Keith kindly gave us some milk, butter and toddler-friendly food to see us through the night. It was a good start to our week-long stay.
The place came ready equipped with everything we needed, including games for the kids, a toddler cotbed, a pack'n'play for our baby and two bikes fitted with kid's seats. This was a great personal touch that we would not have been able to find elsewhere! There was even a swing and some toys in the beautiful shared yard that we spent quite a bit of time in.
The neighbourhood was perfect and so convenient for us. We were less than a block to Magazine Street and took the bus to anything further than walking distance. It was also a short walk to Zara's, a small grocery on Prytania Street, and the streetcar on St. Charles, which I promised my daughter a ride on before we left!
There were so many great restaurants and shops within walking distance, including Surreys for awesome breakfasts (which we went to twice), Le Boulangerie bakery, Guy's Po-boys and Pizzeria Domenica (all very kid friendly). For anything we couldn't get at Zara's, there was also a Whole Foods on Magazine Street.
We would also like to point out how walkable everything was from this location. On our first day, we walked up to St. Charles to Tulane University and cut back through lovely Audubon Park (stopping at the playground along the way) to Magazine Street and then back to our place. We were in town for a wedding, but only had to take a taxi to/from the airport and were able to get around by public transport to everything else.
We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to young families or those looking for a quiet and friendly place to stay. In fact, we're already planning our next trip back!
This is a great place. The hosts were welcoming and unobtrusive. The location is excellent. You can walk to everything on Magazine Street and jog in Audubon park. The apartment is clean and has everything you need.
This is a really great location for folks willing to venture beyond the French Quarter. Some of the best shops, restaurants, and bars in the city are nearby (although the street is completely quiet). Try Guys PoBoys, Creole Creamery (ice cream), or Les Bon Tems Roulez (bar/music) -- all within a few blocks.
Keith and Yuki were kind hosts and we enjoyed talking to them. They provided us with a pack-and-play for our young son, saving us the trouble of bringing one. They also helped us find a babysitter and were kind enough to mail back a small item that we left behind.
We visited New Orleans with our two young sons (4 and 18 months), and Keith's apartment was perfect for us. Keith and his family were very friendly and helpful without being too obtrusive. The apartment felt like home, and Keith even set up a toddler bed for us (and offered to set up a pack n' play, too). We were walking distance to some great restaurants, playgrounds, grocery stores, and the streetcar, and an easy jog to the Audubon Park and Zoo. Our oldest son asked why we couldn't stay longer! :-) Thanks so much, Keith!
We had a great time at Keith's! The apartment was very clean and lovely and we were so comfortable. Keith was great at communicating with us and when we were confused adjusting the seat on one of the bikes he'd left for us to use he was immediately responsive and helpful. He also left a list of recommendations - the bakery he recommended was great, and we had a wonderful dinner at a nearby restaurant on his list, Upperline. Would definitely recommend Keith as a host!
Great guest!, Would love to have him back anytime!
