I am originally from the Philadelphia area and currently reside in New Orleans.
Jason's space was great! We had a group of 7, which fit comfortably in the spacious house. The neighborhood is wonderful, two blocks off of St Charles and a pleasant walk to Magazine Street made the experience wonderful. As a host, Jason was available and responsive to anything we needed. I can't wait to come back to New Orleans and have Jason host us again!
A group of eight of us stayed at Jason's place in the Lower Garden District. This was our first trip to New Orleans and we didn't know what to expect. Jason went above and beyond as a host. Prior to our trip down he kept in regular contact not only about the house but gave us great advice on places to go and things to see.
The house itself was huge! Our group was large and the house more than accommodated all of us. It has three bedrooms and three baths with a large dining room, living room, and kitchen. Very clean and well maintained – really felt like a large Louisiana-style home. The location was great as it was right off St. Charles Avenue, which is a main thoroughfare in New Orleans. I would highly recommend this home for any large groups and happily work with Jason again to arrange accommodations.
We had a very nice stay in Jason's home. The house was very comfortable and clean. The location is perfect. A block and 1/2 up from St Charles so it was a quiet area in a nice neighborhood, but also had great access to downtown and Tulane/Audubon park. Jason was very helpful, accessable and engaged in our stay, and a great guy to do business with. I give this home a very high recommendation.
Jason saved the day. There were no hotel rooms available and he not only offered his place on a few hours notice, but also accommodated our 10:30pm arrival. Once we arrived, Jason was very hospitable and his place met our needs quite well.
This rental could not have been better for Carnival. This upstairs space is gorgeous and close to everything that we needed. There are 2 bedrooms and really 3 bathrooms that are accessible. Our host did everything to make it easy to get checked in and was in contact with us throughout our stay. I cannot think of anything that would have made this trip better. Thanks, Jason!
Jason was a fabulous host. He went above and beyond. We had a wonderful time here in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. The location was perfect for a family trying to see parades. I would recommend Jason as a host without any reservation.
Jason was a great host! Our place was located just outside of the french quarter and conveniently located next to plenty of bars,food,etc. The apartment was fantastic and much nicer in person than it seemed in the pics. It comfortably slept a group of 6. We all had a blast and would all highly recommend the apartment and host!
This review is from the perspective of a family with 4 kids (ages 8, 6, 4 and 2). This home was the perfect location for our stay in New Orleans. We enjoyed walking around this quiet, quaint neighborhood every evening, seeing the shops and architecture, and frequenting the nearby park. We liked the proximity to Magazine street, where we got breakfast pastries from La Boulangerie (a local bakery), and enjoyed restaurants such as SukhoThai. We were also walking distance to Whole Foods, where we got healthy pre-prepared meals, and Rousse's, a larger general grocery store.
It was about a 15 minute drive to the French Quarter. We rented a car because our kids can't walk too far. We opted to pay the $20 for city parking, since the French Quarter festival was free anyway. It was well worth it to rent the car as opposed to dealing with the crowded street cars with the stroller and all our stuff. The house was in a centralized enough location to make visits to the swamp, plantations and larger parks (City Park and Audubon Park) convenient.
For the house itself, it was clean with wood floors, and appeared to be of newer construction than the surrounding houses. It had gas stoves, and many of the appliances, spices and condiments you need to cook. The hosts even stocked our fridge with water. There was a laundry machine and dryer, and with an air mattress we were able to fit 6 people no problem. We could have even fit more people downstairs if we needed to.
There were only 2 major issues we had with the house (which may or may not affect others). One was the "cubby drop", where there were open cubbies on the 2nd floor with a good 12 feet drop to the ground on the other side. This is no problem for adults, but with kids this was very dangerous so we had to cover it up lest they be temped to crawl through to find themselves falling on the other side. The second issue was the lack of privacy. As it is a loft style, there are no complete walls anywhere except the downstairs bathroom. So for parents who want private time, you better hope your kids are sound sleepers! From anywhere upstairs, you can hear someone whispering in the bedroom or washing their hair in the shower.
If those issues aren't a problem for your party, then this is a wonderful place to stay. The hosts were very helpful, frequently checking in to see if there was anything we needed, and a good source for recommendations. We would come back here if we visited New Orleans again.
Its a very nice place. Jason is a great host.
Jason made the process very easy and was extremely accomodating as a host. It was my first time to New Orleans, and I can definitively say that I had a blast during Superbowl weekend, and much of that can be attributed to the amazing townhouse that we stayed in. Thanks again Jason!!
Jason is my neighbor in New Orleans whom I have been friends with for a while now. I have been over many times as he hosted visitors in his home. He is always concerned that his guests are comfortable and have all that they need. Jason’s home is always remarkably clean and organized, but he and his wife, Anna truly enjoy people and entertaining. I was invited on a trip that Jason planned and impressed with how well coordinated it was. I would hope to find a host like Jason in my Airbnb travels.
