Wonderful Stay in Uptown New Orleans
We have stayed in New Orleans in a number of units over the last 4 years, but this one is by far the nicest place we have been. The owner, Janette, who lives right upstairs, is a joy, not to mention being a fount of knowledge about many things including what to do and see in New Orleans. I wish my neighbors at home were as nice or as friendly. She reminds us of a favorite aunt.
It is on a main street in a nice, quiet, safe neighborhood. During our week long stay, we had no problem street parking right in front of the property. The St. Charles steetcar is a block away on S. Carrolton Ave. and will take you downtown in about 45 minutes. The ride itself is a sightseeing tour and a ride worth taking.
Private entry to the unit is via the side of the house, just a short walk from the street behind a white picket fence. The pictures shown in the listing are an accurate representation of the property. It is very comfortable, very clean, well maintained, and well decorated. The central air conditioning worked perfectly (which is very important 9 months of the year in New Orleans). It was super convenient having new, clean appliances in the kitchen and the laundry room (even an ironing board and steam iron are provided). The bathroom was large and well appointed with big, fluffy towels and plenty of hot water. There is a queen sized bed in the bedroom with a good sized walk-in closet. A big screen TV with all of the premium cable channels is in the living room. The WiFi was fast and easy to access.
As an added bonus, the pool and hot tub in the back yard were terrific. Just let Janette know that you want access (before 9PM so the neighbors don't get upset) and show respect.
All in all it was a terrific stay, we can't say enough positive things about Janette and the unit itself, and when next we go come to New Orleans, we will be staying there.

This apartment had everything we needed and just 15 minute to the French quarters. Situated in a quiet, safe neighbourhood, very clean, comfortable, what more can you ask for at that price. Highly recommendJohn M.
