Oak view is a lovely 100 year old historic Victorian. It is ideally located across the street from the famous City Park and the New Orleans Museum. That means we are walking distance to Jazz Fest, across the street from Voodoo Fest, two blocks from the start of the Endymion Parade, two blocks from the historic Cemetery, around the corner from Bayou Bogaloo festival, and a very short distance to the French Quarter, downtown and the convention center. The trolly stops in front of the door.Further the crescent city classic race and most other races and marathons ends here at the park across from the bed and breakfast. Unbelievable but true.We also feel that we are at least in the TOP 10 for the best Bed and Breakfast not number 25. WE are totally new, totally renovated and modernly upgraded with whirlpools in every room.

We came down for 5 days for museum and outdoor activities. The house is in a great location near city park and only 100 yards from the streetcar to downtown and the French Quarter. The house is a lovely historic home furnished with antiques, yet has modern bathrooms with great showers, which you don't always get in a B&B. Innkeeper was friendly and helpful with things like streetcar maps and local info. Breakfast was great the one morning we had it. We are hikers and birders and prefer to get up and out early, so the 9:00 breakfast time did not work for us. They did let us put our own food in the fridge so we could eat early and get out. The room was not serviced or cleaned during our 5 day stay (including rubbish cans not emptied), which didn't bother us but might be a problem for some. Overall we were happy with the stay and the place, but if you want daily service or flexibility in breakfast time, might choose another place.

My boyfriend and I recently visited New Orleans for the Voodoo Fest in October. We originally were supposed to stay at the HI. But due to the Hard Rock Cafe collapsing our reservation got cancelled two days before going to New Orleans. My boyfriend were on a mission to find another place to stay and quickly! We searched and we searched, until my boyfriend came across the Oakview Bed and Breakfast. The location was perfect, with just a short walk we were at the entrance of City Park. We also love bed and breakfasts. We are so glad that we came across this bed and breakfast because it was one of the best times we have had. Russel’s hospitality was off the charts! He was so friendly, helpful and kind to everyone that was staying there. Oh... and did I mention what a great cook he is! The breakfasts we had were so wonderfully presented and delicious. I keep on thinking about his amazing biscuits he made!! Thank you Russel for being a wonderful host. I highly recommended this place if you decide to visit New Orleans. You will not be disappointed only blessed to be there. Enjoy your stay!

Loved the quirky uniqueness of Oakview after the blandness of hotels. Our host, Russell, has been most accommodating. Breakfast has been fabulous home cooking. Set us up well for a day of sightseeing. The trolley bus to downtown is just over the road and runs frequently. The park area opposite gives a quiet calm contrast to the wonderful sounds and sights of downtown. Would certainly stay again if returning to NOLA. The free parking is a bonus!
