“Wonderful B&B with Excellent Host!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

My husband and I decided to visit NOLA and were not sure about where to stay. We have stayed in one other B&B before and really loved the quaint atmosphere. I am so happy we picked Maison de Macarty. The breakfast that Chef Curtis prepared each morning was delicious. The B&B was very comfy and Kurt and the others around the property would do anything they could to make our stay a pleasurable one. Kurt was great about giving recommendations and we were very happy with all of them. On our first night in it was dark out and when we drove up we weren’t sure what to expect (we had never been to NOLA before) but after seeing people walking their dogs, we knew we were fine. The Bywater was a nice distance away from the hustle and bustle of the Quarter but close enough to walk to during the day and cab back at night. I can't wait to visit everyone at Maison de Macarty again, I felt like I made friends while I was there, we really just loved everything about it!!!

Room Tip: I wanted to stay in room 1 but it was booked. Hopefully on our next trip I can snag it. We stayed o...

My partner and I stayed at the Maison de Macarty for 5 nights over the NY celebrations.
First time in Nola. We had the best time and although New Orleans is amazing, vibrant and dynamic our experience wouldn't have been the same without Maison de Macarty. The building is spectacular, beautifully decorated. Lovely Xmas tree by the fire and large poinsettia plants throughout the hall and living room. Each room is different, some large than others. A truly special place. I loved breakfast time. Curtis, the chef, cooked very tasty, flavoursome and different dishes everyday. We also enjoyed very much the company of the other guests. We chatted together sharing the things that we had done or had planned for that day. For me the piece of resistance was Kurt, what and amazing and warm host. He would go above and beyond to make sure that your every need is satisfied. We were cold in the Pond Cottage on our first night and Kurt along with his business partner Dr.Warren made sure that that would not happened again and we were moved to the main house right away. They took that night off from the total bill which it was a really nice gesture. All I can say is that our family or friends wouldn't have treated us better. They have been managing the place for over a year now. They are doing a fantastic job. When visiting NOLA, you should have a bit of Kurt, Dr.Warren and Curtis TLC. I know we did. Its a shame my phone was stolen back in London and all my photos of that precious time have gone. All I have is memories but what a great ones!!!!!!

Room Tip: Room 1, has a beautiful balcony.

My husband and I love to travel. We particularly love "hoteling". So our choice of a B&B was unusual but it is located in the Bywater section of New Orleans where we were going to visit family. We were delighted with every part of our experience.
We had alerted the proprietor, Kurt, of a late arrival. No problem! He gave us the front door code and left a charming note with our room key and directions for where to find ice in the kitchen and a nicely stocked bar in the dining room. Also home made cookies in the parlor. Heavenly arrival after a day of work and evening of travel.
The chef, Chris, produced wonderful full breakfasts none of them the same. So it was a treat each morning to anticipate our meal. Kurt greeting us cheerfully with coffee ready as soon as we entered the dining area. On our last day we had an early flight. Again, no problem! Kurt and Chris moved breakfast up for us to enjoy a full hour earlier than normal schedule.
We can't imagine staying anywhere else when we return to New Orleans.

Room Tip: Room 1, our choice, was spacious and had a front balcony. Loved it.

An enjoyable experience due to a kind hearted, warm, friendly atmosphere with such beautiful and comfortable accommodations.
Within walking distance of my family's home!
My host, Kurt went beyond all expectations, sharing and welcoming.
Cannot wait for the next opportunity.
And I am recommending this B&B to all my friends and family.

Room Tip: If you can, "the cottage" was a delight!

A perfect stay in a picturesque neighborhood. The 20 or so block walk to Frenchmen Street is effortless, refreshing and full of local characters. I also enjoyed riding on their complimentary bikes which I think is actually a better way to explore to neighborhood. The quality gourmet breakfasts by Curtis were lovely; my Room #6 was comfy, clean and simply like a home away from home, and Kurt and Warren were welcoming, helpful and caring. Maison de Macarty definitely lives up and exceeds all the rave reviews!

I stayed here for 7 days due to a conference. The B&B is beautiful, very cozy. I stayed in room #6 which has the bedroom upstairs and the HUGE private bathroom downstairs, it's some sort of a duplex.

Host Kurt is wonderful: extremely friendly, knowledgeable about NOLA and caring. When I wanted to go shopping in a mall that is hard to reach by public transport he took me there the next day and picked me up 2 hours later, right on time. What incredibly thoughtful. Whatever you want: just ask Kurt and he fixes it for you.

Unfortunately I had a very bad week in NOLA due to a hernia that seemed to get worse by the hour. As my plane left at 1900, I asked Kurt if I could have a late check-out as I really couldn't visit anything anyway. That was no problem at all, and I could stay in the room just as long as I wanted.

Curtis is the chef who prepares breakfast every morning. Oh-boy......be prepared to wake up in the morning smelling the most delicious things already that just want to make you get out of bed and taste it! Breakfast kept me going for the whole day so I never (not one single day) had to get lunch. Very tasteful and Curtis is, like Kurt, ever so friendly and kind.

I had a great stay and will not hesitate one second to stay there again when visiting NOLA.

Thanks for everything Kurt and Curtis, I wish I could have enjoyed it more because of the omnipresent pains I was having. Another time I hope!

What a wonderful time and memory I will have from now on! My partner and I stayed in one of the cottages and we fell in love with your place. Kurt's way is one of the utmost kindness and care given to his guest and we appreciate your taking us in at the last minute. I had the best New Year experience in my life and your B&B was a huge part of it. I was especially impressed with the detail of decoration for the season and as others have said, my expectations were greatly exceeded. Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful property with us. We will definitely be coming back. Love to you and Happy New Year!! - Rob and Mark, Oklahoma City, OK
