The hosts are fabulous - very welcoming and really make you feel at home. Also, they were very responsive throughout the booking process and provided excellent instructions about how to get there in the car. The pool - ah, this should not be underestimated! So lovely to return to after a day of sightseeing. The area - some great places to eat, all suggested in the excellent visitor notes provided in each room. Good air-conditioning. Honesty bar - love those poolside G&Ts. Breakfast - so, so good. Different and delicious every morning. Easy parking in the driveway. Memorable for all the right reasons!
The less great:
There is no getting away from the fact that it is a long walk into town...And that's from someone who walks an hour a day as part of my commute into work. The first day, we walked. The second, we drove halfway in and parked on the street (just outside the zone where they start charging). After all, New Orleans is a pretty warm place :) If your time is limited, I'd stay closer, despite the neighbourhood being really great to see and explore. The shower was really bad...seriously. Water pressure was very low and it was difficult to get a comfortable temperature - it was either way too hot or too cold. Understand it's an old house but I've stayed in plenty of older properties but none quite matched this shower!
