I'm a long-time resident of NOLA and I would love to be your host!
Cam was an awesome host. Tuning in to what we were looking for. The house itself is beyond the photos - which is hard to believe I know. But spotless with attention to details. Fabulous location with several very fine restaurants nearby. Her dad Will is a gem. The whole place gets a big thumbs up!
Cam was incredibly accommodating! Beautiful place and a great time! Can't wait to go back!
Cam was amazing! And so was the cottage. Upon arrival, Cam met us at the cottage and showed us maps of the city, recommended restaurants and shows, and made us feel at home right away. We used the bikes that Cam offered us to get around the city, and it was a lovely way to get to know New Orleans. We made sure to soak in the hot tub every afternoon before heading out into the nightlife. We had amazing New Orleans meals upon Cam's suggestions, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our trip. Wish we were back there now!
We had an amazing stay thanks to Cam! The place was clean and comfortable, she answered all of our questions and gave great recommendations and even taught me how to make cocktail sauce for some shrimp we cooked. I highly recommend staying here and would do so again. We walked to the French Quarter, but had some of our most fun moments right there in Bywater (go to Bacchanal!).
Cam was a wonderful host and the cottage is absolutely adorable! My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Peaceful (but not too far from the action!)
The cottage, the garden, and the hot tub were all amazing. I especially want to mention the neighborhood and Cam's hospitality.
The Bywater is where I would want to live if I moved to New Orleans. It has a lot of character, several great restaurants, a yoga studio, a juice bar, quirky little shops, and is all easily walkable. It felt very safe and connected despite being in the middle of a large city. And of course it is very convenient to the French Quarter.
Cam was also great, and even though we never met in person, I knew she was taking care of everything. She left a lot of helpful info and maps, and was available if we needed anything.
I have recommended this place to my mom and also to a friend who lives in NO for when he has guests from out of town.
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 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!
