There were 10 of us and the guest house fit the bill for accommodating 5 couples in the 5 guest rooms. The location is one block off Frenchmen Street. A good walk to the Quarter. Off the beaten path so not many restaurants nearby. Nice coffee shop around the corner on Frenchmen and Walgreens a block away to get water; snacks; beer; and wine etc. We typically stay closer to the Quarter so unlikely we will be returning. Our room was OK (River) but didn't like exit being right on street. Gate to courtyard locks so each time we wanted to go to patio/meet our other friends, we had to use key (one key between two of us)but on the other hand, we can't blame them for the security. The pictures of the courtyard/hot tub area were frankly much nicer on line. However, we arrived for second week of Jazzfest when it rained for one week so dismal most places. David was responsive to requests. Overall, depends on what you are expecting as to whether this is a place to recommend you stay. It served our needs since we needed 5 rooms but have stayed other places nicer, safer, within same price range. Perhaps nicer weather may have affected stay.
