This was our first trip to NOLA, although I travel often the other guests have not vacationed for many years. This left me in charge of most of the arrangements including accommodations, the rooms were clean and just as pictured. It was close to many small cafes and coffee shops but just out of reach from the famous action of New Orleans. (Can you say, Taxi?)The owner left us alone and we had no reason to contact him during our visit. I did have issues during our payment process and getting ahold of the owner was impossible, I leaned on VRBO and he finally responed, which rubbed me the wrong way.

If you are looking for an up-scale place close to the live action of NOLA, keep looking. If you are looking to stay on budget, quick taxi ride to the center of chaos this might be just the place...

This very large sized 2-bedroom unit is Faubourg Marigny part of town, just a few blocks from the French Quarter. It used to be the home of the daughter of actor Conrad Veidt and there are lots of pictures and posters to remind you of that heritage.

The bedrooms are nicely decorated and each have queen beds and the living area is nice-size and comfortable.

There are lots of local establishments within the area, and you can tell that this is the type of neighborhood that an entertainer like Miss Viola Veidt would choose to live in -- We especially enjoyed the Spotted Cat Music Club!!

This is a good place if you are here with a car as we never had problems finding free on-street parking either right in front of or within a few feet of the place.

The water in the Fridge and the Coffee K-cups are a nice touch. They have more towels than you will ever need, but there a just a few relatively small upgrades that could push this to a 5-star rating. (a...
