What a city! What a place in 624 Frenchmen!! Tour hard during the day and chill out hard at night. Apartment is fantastic and in a brilliant location. Could not have been bettered. Sylvia was easily contactable and helps out when she can.
If we come back we will stay here.
We loved Sylvia's apartment on Frenchman Street. If you are coming to NOLA for the jazz and you want your trip to have a constant soundtrack then this is the place for you. Light sleepers who want to go to bed before 2am might be challenged. The apartment is clean and decorated in a funky New Orleans style. There are 28 fairly steep steps up to the apartment, so keep that in mind. You are surrounded by well known jazz clubs, a fabulous breakfast spot , and some fun dinner/ music places. It's a very short walk to the French Quarter. We enjoyed the walk up Royal Street over Decatur. A highlight of the apartment is the balcony overlooking a sea of humanity at night. This is an experience, not one you would get at the Hilton or Marriot.
The location is great! Our very favorite part was sitting on the balcony overlooking Frenchmen Street and listening to Jazz coming from all sides. The apartment was clean (many stairs) and the beds were comfortable. However, if you are a sleeper you must bring your earplugs!!! After all, it is NOLA!!! This location may not be for everyone, but we really enjoyed our stay. Sylvia was a great person to deal with - very nice and very accommodating.
We had a great welcome from Sylvia to her lovely property. The large balcony was ideal to watch one of the Mardi Gras parades passing through Frenchmen Street. It was brilliant to see the Uptown Jazz Orchestra at Snub Harbour and then walk next door to your apartment.
This place was absolutely amazing the attention to detail inside the place the balcony overlooking Frenchmen Street we would stay here whenever we come to New Orleans in the future and the owner is an exceptionally friendly person who is full of knowledge of that City
First trip to NOLA and completely lucked out when I booked this rental. It is a wonderful apartment right in the middle of Frenchmen street, which may as well be the new "bourbon street", but completely infused with all of the Jazz clubs instead of tourist trap bars. Literally, across the street (30 feet) and next door are 2 Jazz clubs. It is a clean, safe, and surprisingly quiet indoors. The outdoor porch is the best part of this rental!! Probably the best rental in NOLA. Worth every penny.
I was very much looking forward to staying here but had to cancel due to pregnancy issues. I did not take the time to really look into the cancellation policy. I cancelled well in advance of my intended stay and assumed I would get my payment refunded minus the booking fee. It was after that I realized it is only refunded if you pay the FULL AMOUNT in advance and not just the first night. I should have waited until closer to the trip to cancel after paying the full amount. This was a $250 lesson learned.
This looks like a lovely home with great reviews. Just don't be quick to reserve unless you are 100% certain you can follow through.
