“There is not a better place to stay in New Orleans!!!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

By far one of the best experiences from the moment I arrived until my departure that I've ever experienced when traveling. Kurt has a perfect balance of professionalism and personalization rarely seen these days. Immediately, I felt very comfortable not only in my exceptionally clean room, but also in the common areas of the property. I really enjoyed "hanging out" with Kurt by the very well maintained pool where he shared his priceless knowledge of things to do in the city. The entire staff there was great and always available to assist me in a variety of requests. Thank you all for making my trip so memorable and enjoyable.

Thank you to everyone at Maison de Macarty! We had the most amazing time, due in huge part to everyone there. The food was amazing, and the house is nothing short of spectacular. Kurt met us with a list of restaurants he thought would appeal to us, unfortunately we didn't get to try them all but the ones we did try were perfect (several are close to the house, which was a huge plus). The house itself is located in the perfect spot. It's close enough to the French Quarter to walk, but far enough away so that in the evenings it's quite and peaceful. The pool was a welcome spot (and one of the few that we found in our research of bed and breakfasts) each night after spending the day in town. We try to find bed and breakfasts to stay when we travel, so we have stayed at many. But without a doubt Maison de Macarty is our favorite. We hope it will become our home away from home for years to come. Thanks again!
Tim and Rick

This beautiful and elegant little B&B was everything we could have asked for and MORE! The staff was fabulous from the moment we were greeted at the door to the moment we left. Kurt was gracious and fantastic with all his advice and knowledge of the city. They all catered to our every need and then some... We had our wedding ceremony in the immaculate and beautiful patio in the courtyard, which was the perfect setting. We cannot say enough good things...the house is amazing, rooms are beautiful, the secluded private pool is wonderful, food is delicious....everyone made sure our wedding was just what we wanted! Also an exceptional value, based on other area hotels and their packages. A+++++! We will recommend them to everyone we know!

Room Tip: We loved room #1 with the large private balcony

OMG! My husband and I will absolutely cherish our weekend at Maison de Macarty, forever! Kurt and Warren are so helpful, friendly and fun to talk with. Enjoyed the many times we were able to just hang out & chat, and get great ideas for places to eat and places to see that we might not have seen yet. The breakfasts are delicious and accomodating in every way. As a fellow Chef, I love getting new ideas and appreciating what other hard working chefs are able to show me. Chef Ashley is so creative and talented, enjoyed each of her breakfasts! So happy to have met such a sweet gal, eaten great food and been able to do some recipe sharing with her! :) (btw, I used your idea for a puff pastry-topped quiche at my restaurant! Went over flawlessly!)
The dinner reccomendation at Maurepas was spot on! Ate there twice, you must check it out if you like a creative and fresh menu with unique cocktails.
Even after the unfortunate brief illness of my husband, Kurt and Warren were so understanding and eagerly offered the Pool Cottage for another night (gladly accepted!). The pool was very enjoyable, clean, always had fresh towels and refreshments.
We will be reccomending the MdM to all of our friends and even hope to bring my own parents here someday.
(Kurt, Warren, and Ashley... I adore you all! Thank you for such a great stay and wonderful company, hope to see you in our neck of LA soon!;)
Merci toujours mes amis!

Room Tip: Loved the Pool cottage, private, comfy feather bed and very spacious. Right next to the pool, yet qu...

We used to live in the Bywater before the storm - so while we appreciate the new shine on the neighborhood, often we find a bit of that old 'friend' feeling is lacking.

Voila! Maison Macarty to the rescue. With it's beauty and humor - this B&B manages to strike the perfect balance of elegance mixed with that 'old bywater' feel.

From the bikes, (with locks!) decorated nola style (thank you very much!), to the fresh citrus margarita that arrived with intuitive magic at just that moment when the endless whirl that is New Orleans was getting to me (thank you B! you are one for the books- Mwah!) - this place was spot on.

It is our new New Orleans home away from home.

After the great welcome we received from Warren & Kurt we knew we were going to love staying at Maison de Macarty. Unfortunately we didn't get to see Warren again but Kurt was always on hand to give us advice on just about anything and everything about New Orleans. The room in this wonderful old house was perfect and after our long days out it was great to be able to come home to a comfortable bed. Curtis cooked some of the best breakfasts we had on the trip and his souflle & muffins were the best. It was great getting to know the other guests over breakfast and discussing the previous days activities. We enjoyed walking everywhere and felt safe in the neighbourhood. There are bikes available if you enjoy riding. The pool looked very inviting and would have liked more time to make use of it. Can highly recommend this B&B if you are heading to New Orleans. Big thanks to Kurt for being such a great host and to Curtis for being such a great chef. Brisbane is a long way from New Orleans but if we make it back one day we'll certainly be staying at Maison de Macarty again.
