I'm a long-time resident of NOLA and I would love to be your host!
This place was absolutely brilliant - I would give it 6 out of 5 if I could! Cam and Will are the utmost hosts, and went out of their way to make my stay wonderful, plus they are both fun and interesting people with a twinkle in the eye. the place is even nicer than the photos. so many thoughtful and luxurious touches throughout including local beers in the fridge for you, new orleans music/radio playing inside as you arrive, high thread count sheets, fun artwork, stone walk in shower, outdoor hot tub, shall I go on? Bywater is a wonderfully colourful and fascinating place, my favourite part of New Orleans so far. I'm not one to go back to the same place twice, but in this case I definitely will. This is the right place for those that want to experience something more than the usual tourist parts of this deeply interesting city.
The property was exactly as presented. The cottage is very cute and the yard is super. Cam was a gracious host and gave us great tips on things to do in town. I agree with all the positives in other reviews.
Bywater is an up and coming neighborhood. It seems very very safe. We saw a few people walking & riding on the streets at 1a in the morning and they didn't seem in the least bit concerned. We used the bicycles to explore the neighborhood & the french quarter.
All in all - our first airbnb experience was an absolute joy!
We had a wonderful time staying with Cam and Will. The property was even better than expected--although it looks great in the photos, we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Cams hospitality, from bikes, neighborhood recs, and even helping us get tickets to the crew du vieux ball was amazing.
We can't wait to come back!
Cam's place was beautiful! We very much enjoyed our stay! She was very helpful, and easy to communicate with! I definitely recommend staying with her if you are going to new orleans!
Cam was super she was there when we arrived gave us a general overview showed us the bike and we were off and running the place is charming very clean and a great get away nice to be away from the main drag but close enough to bike this was a easy was to see the sights and city. Great local places to walk. Loved the place would recommend and even have people asking about her place. Much better than any hotel as far as i am concerned.
Cam's guest house is a real jewel in the funky and bohemian Bywater neighbourhood. It has character and comfort and is pretty well-equipped (though the kitchen might be limiting if you're staying for more than a few days and don't want to eat out all the time).
We totally loved biking around the neighbourhood streets on Cam's bikes, finding interesting shotgun houses and sniffing out good cafés, and also enjoyed simply hanging out at Cam's place; in the hot tub, in the abundant and beautiful garden (we got to pick and eat oranges, satsumas, lemons and kumquats!), trying out the hula hoops... Though it may not feel like it in the garden, you are still in a city and as such get to hear interesting city noises like the train - which hoots and toots its way through town at all times of day and night and you can also hear the steam ship all the way from the harbour downtown!
Both Cam and her father Will were extremely welcoming hosts who are very proud of their city and generous with their recommendations and suggestions of what to do and where to go. A big thank you to you both!
We had a great time at Cam's on New Years Eve! Even though she had plans she still made time to show us some maps, make some great suggestions, and give us thorough directions. We loved using her bikes to get around and the cottage was immaculate and cozy. Our favorite part was definitely the beautiful garden that her father Will tends to. Will was so charming and hospitable - we can't wait to see them again!
This was one of the best experiences I've had at an Airbnb listing. Cam had anticipated every need a guest would have. There were local magazines, yelp print outs, extra linens, space heater, AC, extra towels, etc. Loved my experience and would highly recommend her place again.
Perfect place! Can't wait to get back there. Cam wasn't around but made sure we had contacts and was very helpful. Great friendly fun neighborhood in a great friendly city!
Cam's place was immaculately clean and well appointed! We enjoyed riding the bikes down to the French Quarter and around the neighborhood. We appreciate her great recommendations for dining and nightlife (in fact, we ran into her several times at places she had recommended to us). The house is so nice and comfortable and the yard and gardens are absolutely beautiful - fresh oranges and satsumas ripe on the trees for us! The hot tub was nice on an unseasonable cool night in New Orleans. Thanks so much!!!
Cam was a wonderful guest- quick to respond, communicated easily, up front with questions and super neat when she left. I would recommend her highly to anyone. She even left fresh flowers in my place when she left- could not be happier!
Sono simpatici, cordiali e cortesi, ospiti eccellenti, ospitateli !
It was a real pleasure to host Cam and her friends. They are gorgeous and friendly guests and we hope to have them our guests still in the future. We would like to recommend warmly them at all other hosts.
Good persons and good guests: Positive!
