Nice relaxed place, connected with downtime New Orleans by bus.
had a good time there. jonathan was a good host, knew the good places to check out n as soon as i arrived he pointed them out to me on a map.
Some friends and I were on our way to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras. The only problem was we had no where to stay. I decided to hop on airbnb and see what I could find (completely last minute of course). Johnathan was the first person I contacted and he responded pretty much right away. He was very friendly and accommodating and even stayed up late (1am) to greet us. He allowed us to come and go when we wanted and even offered us some tips about where we should go to see the festivities. The location was only a 10-15 minute drive away from the heart of New Orleans which was perfect. Overall this was an exceptional value for what we paid. If you're on a budget and need a place to stay I'd recommend Johnathan for sure!
It's like staying with your son in his first apt; very basic, sheets over the doors and windows, drinking out of jelly jars, people up until 5 am trudging up and down the stairs, bathroom needed cleaning. That said, Jonathan cleaned the bathroom asap, the bedroom was clean and the bed made up with a toasty warm comforter. It was super easy to find and was a straight shot to the French Quarter. And what a great feeling to come home at night and be able to park!!
The best part of our stay was Jonathan himself! Very sharing and caring. The best that New Orleans has to offer. After years of hardship Jonathan's spirit along with others is rebuilding the Crescent City neighbors outside of the tourist traps. If one really wishes to learn about New Orleans and the people of this wonderful world class city then Jonathan's place is a MUST ! Our stay was about people not the room. The house was clean the hot water was hot and the caring and sharing restored our faith in the human family. We will be back to see Jonathan. Let the good times roll !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jonathan was a great host and this was a good room. If you don't have a car, you'll be taking the bus down to the French Quarter, but you're close to the city park anyway. It was a wonderful stay.
Jonathan was a good host, he was there to meet us when we arrived and offered us cake as soon as we got in the door! He was quite and considerate considering there's not much privacy in this place. Everything was clean but pretty basic. It's a great price if you're just looking for somewhere to crash. There was a fridge to put things and a microwave but no kitchen as such. The neighbor hood was kind of rough but we felt safe and secure in the house. Plenty of parking on the street and close to town. Only downside is you can hear EVERYTHING so make sure you have ear plugs! Good room for the price!
Jonathan is a very sweet and relaxed person. The room was really comfortable and we spent a great time in NOLA. Jonathan was being really helpful everytime we needed something.
This is the perfect place to stay if you´re on a budget!!
Jonathan is an amzing person, so helpful and generous. The place is fine and clean. There is a bus stop just near the house, easy to get to the French Quarter.
Jonathan is a really swell host. I hope to meet one just like him in every city. He's a super friendly and helpful guy, and his place is very welcoming. It's a little rustic, classic post-storm New Orleans, but it's warm and cozy and everything works. I stayed in both his rental rooms and am not sure which one was better: the upstairs room, this listing, has a plushier bed and plenty of closet space. As mentioned in other reviews: the neighborhood is very quiet and there is plenty of safe & free parking. Downtown is very accessible by public transit and City Park/Bayou St. John is a thirty-minute walk away. If you're a traveler on a budget who's looking for a lovely time, this place comes highly recommended!
Johnathan was a great guest. Best arrival story ever too. Within a couple hours being in NYC for the first time, he had rented a bike and rode from 58th street, over the Brooklyn bridge, back up to my place. Truly a great unplanned arrival. Nice going, man.
