I am originally from the Philadelphia area and currently reside in New Orleans.
The house is very nice and clean. I enjoyed the nieghborhood. It's conveniently located a block from a coffee shop and the public transit. The home description is a little misleading. It is a 3 bedroom however, only 2 bedrooms were available the 3rd being locked. I had to share a bed which I wasn't happy about. I admit I should have read the description more carefully as it does not say 3 beds but 2. Why list it as a 3 bedroom if that 3rd is not useable? Anyway it is a lovely home and a very pretty neighborhood
Jason, the house, the location are all great.
The house was just what we were looking for, and Jason couldn't have been a more gracious host! He made sure we had enough towels and sheets, brought us bottled waters, and even gave us suggestions of things to do in the area. This spot was perfect for our bachelorette party!
Jason was great, he was at the house when we got there and he showed us around. He also explained the public transportation options and the layout of the city. We were looking for Packer/Saints tickets and Jason actually followed up with us later to give us a couple ideas on how to get tickets. Jason made sure we were aware that he was available for anything we needed.
The home is very spacious, with beautiful high ceilings. We were there doing some strategic planning for our business and we had plenty of room to meet and be comfortable. Three bedrooms, each with a separate full bath was really nice.
The neighborhood was very nice and we walked and/or took public transportation everywhere we went. A couple blocks from the trolley system that can get you everywhere. There is a nice café right up the street for coffee and beignets. Walking distance to other great restaurants also. Very safe area and felt comfortable walking around during both the day and at night. Gorgeous homes in the area.
I would definitely return to New Orleans, as we had a great time and I would stay at Jason's property again.
Prior to our arrival, Jason checked in with me to learn more about our group so that he could have the house prepped and ready for us based on our needs. Unfortunately he wasn't available to meet us upon arrival, but he left thorough instructions for our stay and walked us through where everything was stored over the phone. We had a group of 7 and the house fit our needs perfectly! The house is located in the Garden District right off of St. Charles and about a 15 minute walk to Magazine Street. We can't say enough great things about the neighborhood. It's a nice departure from the busy French Quarter and we felt really safe walking around at night. I would highly recommend Jason's house for larger groups who are looking for a more local experience.
Thanks for the great time in New Orleans! My staff enjoyed the high ceilings and ceiling fans - it made for a cool and relaxing visit. Nice neighborhood with easy access to Saint Charles Ave streetcar which took them to the convention center and of course the French Quarter. Next time we will be sure to save more time to enjoy the nice backyard.
Great house in a nice quiet neighborhood. Jason was easy to work with and communicated well with our large group. Easy to get to many different city venues from this space by taxi or streetcar. Thanks for hosting us!
A big thank you to Jason and Anna for their hospitality! We were in need of a VERY last minute place for our two families (9 of us total, including a baby!) and Jason went above and beyond in renting to us. The house was perfect and he set up blow up mattresses for our kids so everyone had a comfortable place to sleep. The house was quiet and had everything we needed, and was a short walk distance from the street car or a short ride in a car to the French Quarter, etc. Our kids loved the location, they walked to a local park several days in a row. There is a great coffee shop about a half a block away that we frequented as well. Again, the house was perfect and Jason was a really relaxed but very attentive host. We would for sure stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone, including families!
Jason is a great host. He was very accommodating with our group that arrived and departed at different times for a friend's wedding. The place was tidy but did not appear to be professionally cleaned and could have been a bit more furnished, but overall we had a great time staying at the house. I definitely recommend it to big group visitors to New Orleans.
Great house. Exactly as described in listing. Clean, spacious, well stocked. Good neighborhood. Short walk to coffee, restaurants, and St. Charles St. trolley. Host was friendly and flexible.
Jason was great! Lots of communication and was very easy to rent to him. House was left very clean and I would definitely rent to him again and look forward to him coming again soon!
Very easy guests who i would love to come back!
Jason is a five star guest --- left the house immaculate! He is welcome anytime! The best!
Jason his guest were terrific! Left our home clean and orderly. He is a great guest! We expect to have him again. He is always welcome!
What a super guest!! He left the house neat and tidy and observed every guideline perfectly. We would welcome him back anytime...a five star guest!!
Jason was the perfect guest! Almost no sign of him actually staying, everything was exactly the same as before he arrived.
Jason is a regular and it is great having him back as his schedule permits. He aways leaves things practically untouched. Looking forward to having him back.
Jason, you're everything anyone could ever want in a guest. I really appreciate how easy you made hosting! Come back to my cottage anytime, Jason - you'll be welcome for sure!
It was great having Jason back at The Zen Retreat. He has stayed with us before and I'm glad he chose us again. It was great having him back.
Jason was great I could barely tell anyone was there. The place was great.
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.
