This turn of the centry Victorian Manor is nestled in a sweet little neighborhood. Located between a cafe and a cupcake shop on a block of desired Realestate in New Orleans this is that special kind of place you feel lucky to,find. With deep southern style front porch and balcony, side court yard, arbored court yard and veranda entry side of house. Your step thru time takes you back to an age when gentle speed and quant flirting seemed a care in the and nice manners were a part of the things we had concern to world encounters. <BR><BR>As you enjoy the Ferry boat ride to the French Quarter the ferry is your resort trip boat away from the common days dealings of the city type hustle and bustle when you've return to the peninsula of the Point of New Orleans. <BR><BR>You will be staying at a wonderful manner of det...

The Old Captains House is the perfect base to explore New Orleans. 5 minutes away from the ferry, fantastic neighborhood,lovely friendly people. The house was very much "Home from home", clean and with all the facilities provided for our stay. Great to come home to from the busyness of New Orleans. No need to cook breakfast although it is an option but we would highly recommend "toutes de suites" which is 2 doors away where...

What a nice review. Thank you so much. Please come back again.

Absolutely loved our stay..Robyn was a great hostess filling us in on local history and suggestions for places to visit and eat. Located in a quiet neighborhood with wonderful people and local establishments that welcome you as if you lived around the corner. If you like a more laid back self catering location ...can't be beat

Management response:

Thank you so much. Really enjoyed having yall. you are welcome back anytime.

Robin the hostess is very nice and truly wants you to enjoy your stay. She was able to pick us up at the airport for ½ the cost of a cab. On the way home she gave us a tour of the neighborhood. She was even able to accommodate an extra day due to my mistake in booking the room. She was not on site for much of our stay but was available for questions...

Management response:

Pleased we can respond, the extra space in the manor that is outside the suite rented is provided as a bonus for the price.. This is a historical manor with great presentation and southern hospitality. It's sometimes said you can please most but not all. Both staff and owners are a call away and/or living on property.. We are sophisticated...

I stayed here with my grandmother for a week and we were enchanted by the hold antique house and quaint neighborhood the house was located in. The ferry and a restaurant were both only a 5 to 10 minute walk away which was very convenient regardless of what our plans were for the day. The host Robyn and her assistant Hope were both very helpful and welcoming and for much of the time it felt...

Old Captains House is on the West Bank of the Mississippi River in an old part of New Orleans that is mainly residential and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The apartment is in an old house and full of character. The hosts Robyn and Steve are totally charming and welcoming. The area has a few nice eating places geared for locals rather than tourists and much better for this. Only one...

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed yourself. We liked hosting you and would be happy to have you return. You mentioned the local foods we have in our great little village. I do hope you had a chance to enjoy them all. I believe you had a special diet so you may have found a limit on the selection of cafe's I trust...

About the neighborhood
Wonderful Historic turn of the century neighborhood with wonderful village feeling. Ferry Ride to the French Quarter, warehouse district and CBD. Nice neighbors and friendly folks. A place where time seems to have stopped and you can feel the real,old time style of the city without the hustle of the tourism community. Parking on the street. You will find many parks and a few playgrounds. Churches are on the very blocks with bells of many Diffrent songs. By cycling on bikes or walking are a great way to pass by every wonderful front porch. Many with locals that wave and say hello. It is a world of most often happy New Orlenians discussing what to cook for dinner. As you see a difference in the city lifestyle this is a real part of the true life New Orleans.
