Spent the weekend at Oakview for a last minute New Orleans getaway. I had stumbled across it during a web search for New Orelans B&B's only days before and was fortunate enough to book the last available room. This was one of the only places that I've ever stayed where the reality of the lodgings far exceeded what is advertised.... More

Stayed here in February and had a great time as always. Close enough to the french quarter, garden district, and cemeteries to enjoy without a car, but also peaceful and safe. Easy access to the trolley, and great restaurants in mid-city, including 2014 new restaurant of the year Mopho. Right across from the park and art museum. Russell was a... More

I was looking for a B&B based on reviews, free parking, price, and breakfast. We were renting a car, so parking was important since some places in the FQ charge up to $30 more a day for parking. Also, the price was right and it got good reviews. The breakfast were filling, it now serves more of an upgraded continental... More

This was a repeat visit to a uniquely hospitable atmosphere. Very pleasant weather, home like environment within close proximity to glitz and glamour of French Quarter life, but calm and peaceful distance to retreat when playing tourist is over. Delicious breakfast, homemade biscuits were a reason to return. Russell made every attempt to make us feel welcome and ensured nice... More

Best of both worlds. Right in front of the beautiful city park but has very easy access to get the downtown new Orleans. I highly recommend this bnb to anyone looking for a cozy place to stay and still get the excitement of new Orleans. Hotel management was very friendly and breakfast was always great.

My husband and I just spent 3 nights at Oakview and had a very pleasant experience. We didn't want to be downtown or in a busy city area, but wanted accessibility if we chose. The house is beautiful; older of course, but with some modern updates that make you feel comfortable while still enjoying the original feel of the property.... More

Me and my wife recently stayed here during Voodoo Fest and I can say it was well worth it! Very clean and accommodating, he had recently had tile work done in the bathroom so he graciously opened up the whole top floor for me and my wife. I will definitely stay here again, it felt as if we were at... More

My wife and I came to New Orleans for the Essence Festival concerts during the 4th of July weekend. It was my wife's first visit to the Crescent City and my first visit in about 18 years. We wanted to have a memorable time and to break away from the same hotel routine. My wife and a few conversations with... More
