Great place for a extended stay in New Orleans. Since I have live in NO off and on for 6 years, I pretty much know the area - great location. Nice, clean place with great ac and heat. No problems with the property and the price was right. Bathroom and bedroom where functional and all you need. Kitchen was fully stocked with the necessities. Internet was great-fast and was never down. TV was a few basic cable channels and that was it.
With all the good - just remember this is not the Ritz - its NO. Building is older. Parking is on the street - no parking lot. Street car is literally right outside the unit - great for access up or down town - not so much if you are a light sleeper. It now runs 24hr a day - so you might need some white noise to drown it out.
Good news it that the St Charles street re-pave project is now all done - so the road out front is all nice and new. I got the pleasure of the entire project and parking woes. If you are a long term renter you will need to bring a vacuum or hire a housekeeper. No iron, board, or vacuum in the unit. 3 washers and 3 driers on site - one each was broke the entire time I was there - others worked ok.
Overall a great place as long as your expectations are in line with the price. I would rent again.

This unit is located in complex directly on St. Charles Ave. Great location and that is where it ends. The property was not particularly clean, including the towels, bed spread, throw pillows, on and on. The amenities were sparse. For example, when we went to use kitchen utensils, there was one butter knife and the coffee maker was filthy inside. We contacted the agent who was extremely nice, but when we returned to the unit, there was a different coffee maker and ONE more butter knife. Glad we didn't invite someone over to join us for a meal! In addition to the mold in the hallway which I photographed, there was no vacuum cleaner for the rugs. However, there was a dust buster that was filled with dead cock roaches! One of the residents in the building had a small dog that they just let outside unaccompanied, leaving dog poop on the walkway. One morning there was a pile of dog poop outside our door in the hallway. Although it was in a great location, the ancient windows (metal casement) were not well sealed and EVERY noise from people talking on the sidewalk came straight into the bedroom. The second best feature was the AC, which worked quite well. I would not want someone to experience this property unless they were desperate. Lastly, the bathroom sink was for someone at least 5'11" due to the height of the sink. The lighting in the bathroom was terrible, especially if you shave!

What a wonderful experience at the Avenue Gardens. A little home away from home that is centrally located to just about anywhere you want to go in Uptown or a streetcar ride to French Quarters.
During an extended stay while my husband recovered from surgery in New Orleans, we found this rental a bit of heaven to stay at. Maria, along with the in house staff, was very accommodating and met all our needs. A wonderful memory foam bed, large kitchen with all you need, (even though there are fabulous restaurants all around) and great air conditioning for those summer months in NOLA!!
We can't wait to come back again to this quaint and welcoming rental. Would highly recommend for 2 people.

El apartamento lo gestiona una empresa. Llegamos un miércoles sobre las 6 de la tarde, y nadie nos recibió. Recogimos las llaves en su oficina, colgadas en un sobre, ya que tampoco había nadie. El apartamento está en una vecindad con un patio interior. El patio no es muy agradable, hay malos olores de los aparatos de aire de los vecinos, y un poco sucio. Hay hasta una rata, que vimos varios días.
El mobiliario del apartamento era aceptable, el baño reformado y la cocina muy amplia. Pero faltaba limpieza. En la habitación hacía muchos días que nadie limpiaba. En el interior de los armarios había suciedad. Un día nos encontramos una gran cucaracha en el baño, y otro día otro bicho similar en la cocina.
La situación aparentemente es buena, por tener el tranvía en la misma puerta, pero son tranvías que siempre van llenos. A veces hasta ni paran de lo llenos que van. Tan solo hay una línea de autobús a unas calles, pero tardan mucho en pasar (unos 20-30 min).
Definitivamente, no lo recomiendo.

Step out the door and you are on St Charles. WOW! Hop on the trolley and you can be in the French Quarter in no time. Coffee shop and restaurants within easy walking. A must is the Superior Seafood Grill two blocks from the condo....Excellent! Nice place to stay and safe. As well as pet friendly. Would stay here again.............

Very nice location. Street car line out front under renovation but bus stops there instead. Covered parking was a nice bonus. We did not drive downtown, just left our car and rode the bus and streetcar. Apartment perfect for 2, 3rd person would have to be very short to sleep on small sofa.

My husband and I live in Florida. We've both visited New Orleans multiple times. We looked forward to a nice long weekend and opportunities to see some old favorites as well as new things. There were no reviews for this property when we booked our stay, and that is now a red light for me in future bookings. We're good, experienced, serious travelers and have absolutely loved three other VRBO properties in France and Oregon. Pretty much everything about this property fit our needs, but the negatives made for quite a miserable experience. The bed was very comfy, the location was perfection, we appreciated not having to walk up stairs with baggage, we're wonderful walkers so trekking a bit to catch the trolley or bus wasn't a problem, even with the on-going construction work. Traffic noise was very minimal and hardly noticed. The property was immaculate (we were the first rental). The azaleas all over the place were in full and gorgeous bloom. So, the problem is, the shower was not enclosed. The pictures now on the website show and describe a "large luxury glass shower with marbled tile, beautiful vessel sink and vanity." Not so much; I have pictures of the non-existent "luxury glass shower with marbled tile and beautiful vessel sink and vanity." Not even a shower curtain. Three little synthetic bath rugs were placed around the edge of the shower stall. Of course they became soaked and we hung them outside on the railing, where they never dried because it rained a little bit each day. The tiled bath floor became soaked and thereby really potentially dangerous. We could have complained. New Orleans was in the middle of the worldwide wrestling competition...there was literally nowhere else to go.
All in all, we had a wonderful time because we love NOLA and we travel enough to always carry a healthy grain of salt. But as far as our NOLA experience is concerned, this was quite a surprising negative. This property was not ready to have been rented on numerous levels.

This is a lovely apartment in the Garden District. I was hesitant about renting because there were no reviews at the time, but the place was clean and nicely furnished, and the lack of reviews was because the property manager, Craig, was just starting to use VRBO. Craig was responsive with my questions leading up to and during my stay. I did not get some information prior to my stay (check-in and -out procedures, parking information, etc.)... if that happens to you just give Craig a call and he will tell you everything you need to know.
Having an off-street parking space was very nice. The wifi worked well, and the A/C was great. The apartment comfortably accommodates 2, but 3 would be a stretch, as the couch is not a pull-out and there were no extra linens for a third person. The ad says pets considered, but when I inquired about bringing my 20lb, 11 yr old dog my request was denied, so be sure to ask about that if it's important to you. There is a moderate amount of street noise, as the bedroom faces St. Charles Ave. Also, there is currently construction on the trolley line (April 2014), and the trolley does not run for several blocks in both directions from the apartment. There is a bus that connects between the two points, but don't expect to walk out the front door and hop on the trolley until the construction is completed there.
The Garden District is a very nice place to stay. There were several nice restaurants within walking distance, and it was very easy to get into the French Quarter. The courtyard of the apartment building was quaint and lovely. I also felt safe staying there. Overall I recommend this rental.
