“Fantastic time ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 for a stay in April 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed for 5 nights April last year (and I am just in the process to recommending it to a friend who is heading that way later in the year). The apartment is bigger than the photos imply and there is a really good kitchen with all the mod cons you need. The bathroom has very bits and pieces to help out with what you have left behind! We were daily customers to the café downstairs for a BLT (with wholegrain bread) and decent coffee!! Important to note it is on Frenchmen Street so in the middle of all the music spots. Lovely to sit out on the balcony and listen to street music in the evenings and not be bothered with walking along with the multitudes that are out and about each night. You also get to go to sleep with the music still singing!! Though there is a 6am wake up call as the glass bottles are collected! We spent a half day taking a bike tour towards the end of our trip - I would recommend this at the beginning as it helps get your bearings sorted and also work out other places of interest to visit. Hope you enjoy as much as we did :)

“Frenchman Street at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 for a stay in November 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in this apartment last year whilst at a conference in NOLA, rather than stay at the conference hotel. What a great idea that was!
Where to start, I wonder. First the location is just amazing - assuming you like music. It's bang in the middle of the action of Frenchman street, where you can observe and listen to the music and atmosphere from the huge balcony, if you're not in the mood to go down into the street to party every night.
The owner, Sylvia is a gem. She was so helpful with everything, including the flowers and bottle of wine left for us. She and partner live a couple doors away, but don't worry, she will only appear if you need some assistance. Otherwise you're left in privacy to enjoy yourselves.
The apartment itself is spacious, comfortable and has a kind of decadent style about it. Very NOLA and very Frenchman. I really just love this place and wish I were nearer so could just pop back.
I prefer staying in Frenchman to being in the Quarter. Somehow feels more authentically NOLA and as I love music, it was utter joy.

Sadly I don't seem to have taken any photos of the apartment - very stupid!
The only thing I would say is, I can't imagine why it's taken me nearly 1 year to write this review. Thank you so much Sylvia. We had a fab time and hope to return soon.

“Our new favorite place to stay in New Orleans!”
5 of 5 stars 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”
5 of 5 stars 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”
5 of 5 stars 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.”
4 of 5 stars 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”
5 of 5 stars 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.
