The Lil Arc proved to be an ideal place to stay in New Orleans! Belinda was a great host. We arrived at about 1:30 am, after some epic flight delays. I felt badly for making her be up so late, but she was all smiles. She even gave us a lift over to Frenchman St!
The house itself is really beautiful. Its wonderfully adorned with antique furniture and repurposed wood on the ceiling. The bed is incredibly comfortable, and the shower is really nice. The surrounding neighborhood is pretty nicely situated. Its a quick walk to the French Quarter, but you're away from the madness. You're also right in the Marigny, and relatively close to the Bywater, which are really great areas to walk around and get a bite to eat in. A perfect mid point between the tourist zone and many off the beaten path places. We fell in love with New Orleans and the Lil Arc and hope to come back to both!
Belinda is a fantastic host--the Lil Arc is charming, conveniently located, and stocked with anything you might need. Highly recommended.
Belinda was a very welcoming and incredibly helpful host. She provided a book with local restaurants activities and best of all a well-informed walking tour complete with the history of each stopping point. I learned quite a bit about New Orleans history and Mardi Gras culture in our little 1-mile radius tour.
The Lil Arc was beautiful and very accurately depicted in these pictures. It is small, but perfect for two.
Belinda är världens bästa värd! Vi är så nöjda och allt var så bra organiserat. Hon delade med sig av flera olika tips på restauranger och sevärdheter. Huset var jättefint och välstädat och exakt som i beskrivningen som Belinda angivit på sin sida. Jag skulle inte tveka en sekund på att åka tillbaka och just bo i NOLA'S ARC igen!
Om jag åker tillbaka till New Orleans kommer jag absolut att vilja bo i NOLA'S ARC igen.
Would you believe the place is even cuter than it appears in the pictures. Belinda was super nice and keeps the place super clean. She patiently answered all our questions and gave us some valuable tips about area (places to eat, etc.). I cannot recommend this place enough. Convenient location, great hospitality - we only wished we could have stayed longer.

Belinda was a wonderful host. She met me at the door to show me around, then walked me to a local grocer, while giving me a mini tour of the neighborhood. She was accessible the entire time by phone/text to provide suggestions of what to do during our stay.
The home was quaint and cozy. It was the perfect place to come back to each evening after long days out and about in the city. The shower was delightful and the bed incredibly comfortable.
The neighborhood appears sketchy, but we had no problem walking to and from the French Quarter, day or night. It's about a 15 minute walk. Cabs are easily reached too for a ride less than $10.
Carol, the cab driver recommended by Belinda, was very helpful, especially with holding our baggage after checkout and before our flight. She was prompt to reach us at pick up and drop off, as well as flexible with our changing schedules.
I would highly recommend NOLA's Lil Arc to anyone coming to stay in New Orleans!
The Arc was beautiful and Belinda is one of the most gracious hosts ever. I'll be back!
Belinda was an excellent hostess, greeting us as soon as we arrived to the Lil Arc and giving us all sorts of helpful information in regards to the house, the neighborhood, transportation, etc. We walked everywhere we went from here during the day (French Quarter, Treme, Marigny and Bywater areas) and felt safe. While it may be safe to walk at night at times, a cab is the best bet to make sure you feel secure. The neighborhood is eclectic, always something interesting to look at, great music to be heard in nearby venues and awesome food nearby as well (Belinda's menus/favorites/maps at the Arc really helped us decide where to go)!
Carol was amazing. She made us feel welcome to the city as soon as she promptly picked us up at the airport and even got up before the crack of dawn to drive us to our early departure flight. She and Belinda both radiate the positive energy of the city.
The Lil Arc is a perfect space for a couple. Just enough room, a comfortable bed and quiet sleep, and very nice, clean, updated fixtures and appliances. The musical instruments turned into light fixtures are a great touch.
My husband and I stayed at Nola's lil Arc for 3 nights and we could not have had a better experience. Belinda greeted us and showed us around the cozy house and was so helpful to answer any questions we had about the city. The house was so charming and clean. We loved staying there and will recommend it to others!
Belinda was a gracious and organized host! She was very attentive to my needs as a guest and went out of her way to equip the apartment with all of the things one might need when traveling. Excellent service.
These apartments and studio are newly fitted, stylish and impeccably kept. Linen, towels, cutlery, crockery, furniture are all top quality and Belinda generously stocks the rooms with fresh supplies and condiments. I stayed in the studio and had absolutely everything I needed for a comfortable stay. The location is fantastic. True New Orleans; full of character, short riding distance to attractions, yet quiet with community feeling. The dogs are clean, mellow, well behaved (didn't hear them bark once) and cute and stick with Belinda and out of your way unless you want to pay them attention. Incredible large back yard with hammock and outdoor table, lush lawn. I honestly couldn't imagine a better area to stay and better value for money. Additionally, Belinda is full of local insight, and one of the nicest, witty, talented people one could meet.
The location of this place is outstanding! I stayed here while my house was being remodeled for about 3 months. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. I still park there when I am going into the French Quarter, best kept secret. The place I rented was impeccable and with top notch fixtures.
Belinda was an awesome landlord and her dogs are very nice and friendly. I highly recommend this place!!
ps- great location for walking around and riding your bike throughout the city. Blocks away from the French Quarter, nearby city park, just can't beat it.
Ohh and I had a hard time convincing my dog to come home after staying there, he loved Belinda and the place!
I stayed at Belinda's house November. Her home is immaculate, with modern facilities in a lovely period house. Highly recommended, about ten minutes or so walking distance to the French quarter. Belinda is helpful and friendly. It was a lovely experience, and her dogs are adorable and not noisy. I'm looking forward to visiting again soon. New Orleans is so wonderful. Belinda is a jazz musician and knows all the best places to go. I felt quite safe walking around Treme, the locals are very friendly.
