“Our new favorite place to stay in New Orleans!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 for a stay in April 2012

My husband and I stayed at this ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS Frenchmen Street apartment for 2 weeks. It was the best time we've EVER had in New Orleans, and we have been there multiple times. We were right in the center of the best music scene, with top name clubs surrounding us on all sides. Sure, it can get noisy, and the music from the nearby clubs may go on into the wee hours, but if you love the music as we do, it's just an additional "lagniappe" that comes with the place ... and there are so many! The balcony is huge, and looks right over the most exciting block of Frenchmen Street. The accommodations are comfy, cozy, with exotic touches and colorful decor. Sylvia was the perfect hostess. She's there when you need her, but never 'in your space' if you get my meaning. We were there during French Quarter Fest, and seriously cannot believe there's a better location to be for that wonderful event. Besides the best local music venues a few steps from the door, there is an excellent assortment of restaurants within a few blocks if you don't feel like venturing far. We found a laundromat about a block away and even met some great locals while doing the wash. I can't say enough great things about the place. We are hoping to get back before the year's out, but must be careful not to wait to make plans...the rental keeps booked especially during local festivals (of which there are so many!), so be aware and book early.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The most perfect place to stay if you love music. Spotless and well decorated. Very tasteful. Maybe not a good idea if you cannot do stairs but that is the only hesitation I would give anyone. The only way it could be improved would be potholders for the oven. Done...that is it.

“Location, Location, Location - NOLA 2013”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

My wife and I booked this location via Tripadvisor and were not disappointed! Sylvia picked us up at the airport as promised and gave us some tips for our stay. Being this was not our first time to NOLA we asked for a "local" point of view. She delivered as promised with the suite, large rooms with plenty of local flair. Don't bother packing any HBA items, down to the tooth paste is provided.
We booked 9 nights and enjoyed everyone of them. Very large outdoor "gallery" - (balcony) to enjoy our morning coffee and an afternoon snack before Frenchmen Street comes alive! We stopped and purchased some adult beverages that we consumed outside also while watching the locals being locals. The Spotted Cat is directly across the street and DBA is next door towards the river and Snug Harbor is next door up river. Be sure to take in the Charmaine Neville show at Snug Harbor on Monday Night - she even gave me a hug before the show!
Don't worry all the things that happen in the French Qtr are just a few blocks away and we walked all the time except the evening we decided to go to Harrah's which was only $10 each way. BTW the casino was not built with my money and brought $ home with me!! We are a couple in our 50's and we usually walked for an evening meal and never felt threatened walking home. Yes, you walk past people not as fortunate as most middle class people but again you are a visitor in New Orleans.
Sylvia & Jason are only a phone call away to help make your stay enjoyable. Being to refresh towels or delivering a couple extra rolls of toilet paper. Thanks again for your attention!
When we return this will be our destination again.

“Lovely spot, but too noisy for our taste.”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Loved the flat! Nice décor, plenty of room, fun balcony/deck. The café two doors down was excellent, as were the art fair/market (we bought wonderful paintings for Christmas gifts), The Spotted Cat (great music), the neighborhood was safe and interesting to walk around.
However, if you’re looking to get sleep, the noise level here is TOO much, so take ear plugs. It wasn’t the music, but the continuous dumping of beer bottles from the surrounding bars and apparently the dumpsters are just outside the bedroom window.
Our hostess, Sylvia, picked us up at the airport, told us stories, was most accommodating to our schedule and made the reservation process a breeze.
Overall fun and centrally located.

“Lets keep it a secret”
Reviewed December 19, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We felt so lucky to have found this gem. There wasn't a reason for us to leave the Marigny. We spent every evening having dinner on the balcony listening to the music pour out of the Spotted Cat. Our nights were spent going from club to club listening to the greatest music on the planet. The restaurant right next door served the best dishes.( Cafe Rose Nicuad) Sylvia was a gracious host. We enjoyed her stories on our trip to the airport. She truly loves this city. Just as we do. She made us feel more like old friends. We will stay here whenever we return to NOLA.

“Perfection!”
Reviewed December 16, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We had an absolutely wonderful time staying here! The apartment is in the center of the best music and food New Orleans has to offer. The decor is authentic, eclectic, and up to date. Tall ceilings, a huge bathroom with a wonderful walk in shower. and a beautiful queen size comfortable bed. A bakery with excellent bread and pastries was a short walk away. Bourbon Street is a few short blocks away, if that is on your list. Frenchmen Street is the place to be for the best New Orleans music, and we were directly in the center. Amazing.....we could walk to Snug Harbor, the d.b.a., the Spotted Cat, and many others. I so appreciate that Sylvia, the owner, has made this place available for others to experience. It is a treasure, and we will be coming back!

You should check out the new Frenchmen Street Art Market, just across the street from the balcony. It's wonderful! I love it as it adds another dimension to our neighborhood. More than 20 vendors all with unique gifts in a outdoor setting.
