Visited here for a night with my wife. Cool spot with great location. Next to restaurants, bars, and the lakefront. Bed was nice and comfortable too. It is also located on a side street so it was nice and quiet at night.

We stayed here on our way home from Destin. Wanted to tour New Orleans but didn't want to stay near all the hustle and bustle. This place was awesome! Small simple comfortable and quiet. Michael is a nice guy to sit and visit with. You can sit on the porch and relax or walk a couple blocks to the the... More

Marvilla is great place to stay as a destination or as a base while exploring New Orleans. The guest house is located about 2 blocks from Lake Ponchartrain. From there you can kick back, stroll the lake front park, talk with the locales or just enjoy the view. If you enjoy running, biking or walking Marvilla guest house is good... More

We loved Mandeville - wish we'd spent more time there than New Orleans. Marvilla's location is perfect, and without knowing porch-sitting is my favorite thing, Michael booked us in the room with its own back porch. I'd stay again!

I enjoyed my two nights here. I could walk a block to the lakefront for sunrise and sunset. There are a variety of restaurants very close by, with good offerings. The causeway to New Orleans is near. Marvilla is pretty inside and out, with pleasant owners who are available to help but otherwise do not intrude.

This is a small three room guest house, The owner I believe lives on the premises in another wing. The rooms open to a nice porch, It is set in a tropical courtyard and only a block from the lakefront that is very nice to walk around. The rooms are quaint, nothing too dramatic but very comfortable.

The location is excellent. It's nestled right in the middle of beautiful Old Mandeville, just blocks from the lake. Walking distance to the lake front and local restaurants. In terms of the accommodations, I'd give it a 3.5 if I could. I don't stay in many B&Bs, so I don't want to be too critical, since I don't have much... More

Like many other reviewers, this is a great place to stay in Mandeville. As Michael says, it's 2 blocks to everything. Lots of good, local spots for a meal and a drink. We went to bike the Tammany Trace, and felt very good about keeping our bikes locked on the porch. We'll be back.

Was visiting daughter who lives in Mandeville and wanted a place that we could walk to restaurants and the lake. This fit the bill perfectly and Michael the owner could not have been nicer or more accommodating. This is a small Inn and reminded us of Key West, so many restaurants within walking distance and enjoyed the lake front a... More
