A real home away from home

We loved this place! It had everything we needed, from fresh herbs to a great entertainment center, to make our stay enjoyable. The apartment is so cute. It is clean, very well equipped and the bed, oh my, so comfy. The neighbors are friendly and very quiet. There is a lovely potted garden with seating in the outdoor spaces, one with shade. Also must mention that the location is awesome, convenient, safe and right off the streetcar line with easy access to the French Quarter or Audubon Park and Zoo in the other direction There is a wonderful grocery market just across the street on St. Charles Ave. and the best Seafood Market in the uptown area is only a few blocks away on Magazine St. The parking space is tight but perfect for a compact car, which is better anyway if you plan on driving around the uptown area as it can be quite tricky to navigate. This condo is much more comfortable than a hotel and a great price too. We will plan our visits to New Orleans from now on around the availability of this unit as it is the perfect home away from home for us.

Cozy Space, Great Location

I'm so glad we chose to stay here instead of in a hotel. The owners were very helpful and the space was very clean and cozy - more like staying at a friend's house than a hotel. It's steps away from the Fresh Market, where you can buy organic groceries and cook some "real" food while on vacation. It's also a few steps from the Louisiana stop on the St. Charles Streetcar line. Getting to Magazine Street, the French Quarter, and the Audubon Park were all very easy from this location. We also loved just walking around the neighborhood and checking out the old mansions, Lafayette No. 1 cemetery, and the beautiful gardens. The next time we come to New Orleans, I will definitely be looking to stay here again.

Great Condo

We had an awesome time In New Orleans!! The condo met all of our needs and then some. Brandon and Larissa, can't thank you enough for making our stay as nice as it was. The only reason for 4 stars out of 5, our stay was too short to do everything we wanted. Thank God for the fully equipped kitchen, restaurant prices are alot higher than i would have expected. But food is very cheap, so if you can cook, you need a kitchen and this one had everything. Looking forward to staying here on our next trip to the Crescent City.

Owner's reply:

Glad you enjoyed! Wish the rating was a reflection of the property as opposed to the length of stay.

Charm & Location

My wife and I very much enjoyed this Uptown apartment. The unit is freshly decorated, quite comfortable and located half way between the shops and restaurants on Charles St. and Magazine Street. Highly recommended.

Good times

Great location to embrace NOLA. It was exactly what we had hoped for. Great outdoor space and a bit of home on the inside. We hope to be back.

Great place!

Great property. Great location.

Enjoyed the amenities offered at this condo. Great location close to the streetcar and to Magazine St. Owners provided everything a vacationer might need from recommendations to umbrellas, flashlights, and laundry. Would definitely stay here again.

Ultimate Location!!!

This condo is in the Ultimate location for a stay in New Orleans. The Breaux Mart grocery store is an easy 5 block walk away on Magazine Street where there are also tons of antique stores, other shopping and restaurants that go on and on for blocks. (Favorite clothes shop - Buffalo Exchange...Favorite restaurant - The Rum House) The St. Charles Street Car that will take you downtown to the French Quarter, Jackson Square, and Riverwalk shopping is a mere block and a half. The stop is directly across from the Rite Aid Pharmacy where you can not only buy any personal essentials, but also beer, wine, or spirits. It was especially nice having access to the washer and dryer in the laundry room. The whole experience was hassle free and very enjoyable - I'd definately stay there again! Kind regards to the owners Brandon and Larissa Dianne Vancouver, British Columbia Canada

Excellent Condo

This is a really great place to stay. It's just off St. Charles Avenue and a 1 minute walk from the trolly line. It is an easy walk to Magazine Street with lots of great restaurants and shops including a good supermarket. It is very clean, well equipped and has plenty of space for a couple. We recommend it very highly and would stay there again if we are lucky enough to return to NOLA soon. .

Fabulous place to stay

We always wanted to visit New Orleans and finally got there between Christmas and New Year’s. Our apartment was everything and more than was advertised. it was comfortable, clean, safe and very friendly. Brandon and Larissa have the apartment fully stocked and are available to assist with any issues that may come up. A totally awesome experience!!! You cannot possibly go wrong staying here. Thanks so much for your southern, warm hospitality. Ann and John from Toronto

Great apartment, perfect location

This was a terrific, well-appointed little apartment right off St. Charles -- convenient to Magazine St., Audubon Park, and Tulane. Incredibly comfortable bed! Highly recommended; we'd definitely stay again.

St. Charles, MO USA

Perfect condo!

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in New Orleans in large part to Brandon & Larissa's condo. It is perfect for two people and the location in a very quiet neighborhood can't be beat-off St. Charles Avenue but so close to the streetcar and an easy drive to other areas. The condo was very clean with top-notch kitchen appliances; probably the most well-equipped of any I've stayed in. And an unexpected bonus: if you enjoy a good book, the selection is superb!


Houston Texas

Great Garden District Spot

I really enjoyed my stay at the condo. It was very affordable, I had my own kitchen and didn't have to deal with the hassle of valet parking. The condo was newly redone, sparkling clean and had all the comforts of home. VERY convenient spot, super nice owners. I will stay there again.

New Olreans Garden Style

This rental is perfect for the folks who like to go to the action but not be in the action. The Garden District is much more laid back than the Quarter but the Quarter is only a quick Trolley ride up St. Charles, which is right outside the door. The rental itself is top notch. Very clean, uncluttered, comfy and centrally located. It has a great stereo w/ a wide selection of music, internet capable, laudry facilities onsite and is great for folks who aren't afraid to do their own cooking. Can't wait to visit this rental again.

Great Stay -- Super Comfy

Thouroughly enjoyed staying at Brandon and Larissa's condo. It was very comfortable (both bed and couch are fabulous), the location is quiet and a stones throw from the street car that will take you to the French Quarter. Would love to do it again.

Tom and Nora


Excellent rental!

This is a really good place to stay. It's just off St. Charles Avenue in the nicest part of NOLA (uptown) and 1 minute walk from the trolly line and less than 10 minutes walk from Magazine Street with lots of restaurants and shops including a good supermarket. A Borders bookstore is about 3 minutes walk. It's very clean, well equipped and has plenty of space for a couple. The owner Brandon is a really nice guy with lots of helpful advice on the city. We recommend it very highly and would stay there again if we are lucky enough to return to NOLA soon.

Great Place to Stay!

This is flat out an awesome place to stay. It feels like a home away from home, complete with a Nintendo Wii, big screen TV, kitchen cupboards stocked with necessities, full size fridge, etc. Very modern and clean! The bed is amazing - I've traveled to 30 different countries and I can honestly say this bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. I don't know what kind of mattress it was, but it was heaven. The owners, Brandon & Larissa, are a wealth of information about New Orleans. I highly recommend this place!

Great Condo in New Orleans

We stayed at this condo for the 10 days prior to Marti Gras. What a wonderful experience ! The apartment was immaculate, comfortable, tastefully furnished, stocked with everything we could possibly need. The location was perfect for Marti Gras parades, and would be perfect at any other time - in the Garden District, a few blocks from stores and restaurants, and a half block from the St. Charles streetcar to the French Quarter. The owners, Brandon and Larissa, live two doors away, and they are wonderful ! Knowledgable, friendly, and helpful without every being intrusive. I think this was a rare find, especially during the height of the busy Marti Gras season. I would absolutely stay here again, and recommend it to anyone.

Great Getaway!

We have stayed in Brandon & Larissa's condo three times in the past few years, and it is THE BEST place to stay in NOLA! It is very clean and comfortable. The location is great! We appreciate Brandon & Larissa's knowledge of the city, as well as their suggestions on what to do and where to go! We'll be back! Thanks!!!

FAR better than a hotel

This place is fantastic! It's got everything you need (full kitchen, TV/internet, bath, queen-sized bed, couch). It's centrally located. You can walk to quite a few great places or you can catch the trolley car and have access to a whole assortment of other restaurants and bars. It's clean, modern, and quiet at night. You really just can't beat it! I HIGHLY recommend staying here rather than at a hotel.

Exceptional Experience!

My husband and I were extremely pleased with this condo in New Orleans. It was clean, cozy and close to everything! We'll definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone we know!

Home away from home in New Orleans

This is the second time we've stayed at Larissa and Brandon's condo, and once again, it was just perfect for us. The location is great- just one block off of St Charles Ave, and the streetcar. The condo itself is spotless and very comfortable, and has all the amenities of home- very nice newly renovated kitchen (complete with lots of good cookbooks!), a comfortable couch, and large flat screen tv with DVD and DVR. And Larissa and Brandon are so accomodating! This is so much better than staying in a hotel! We'll certainly be back!


San Diego, CA

Stay here if you're going to New Orleans!

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay here during the coveted week of Mardi Gras. We had a fantastic time and can't wait to go back. The condo was very clean and we always felt secure; even with tens-of-thousands of parade goers just two blocks away! Brandon and Larissa were more than happy to have a drink with us and were a wealth of local knowledge - especially when it came to good, local food. Whether you're into fine dining, or finding some hidden, hole-in-the-wall place that makes the best Po-Boy's, Brandon knows where it is. Thank you for an experience we'll never forget! We WILL be back!

Fantastic spot for return home!

We rented the condo for 5 nights for our first visit home since we left in December 2006. It was a GREAT place to stay, and in our old neighborhood, so it felt like we never left! Kentwood water dispenser is a great touch, I definitely got use of that! Everything we needed was there, and the condo itself is very clean, updated, and with a great, comfortable bed. The experience was excellent, and we will certainly stay again! Thanks!


Boulder, CO USA

Nice in NOLA a Jem for Jazz Fest

This is a great place in a very good location that is off of the beaten path. Easy to get a cab, close to food, grocery, and drug stores, and directly on the trolly line for easy downtown access. A wonderful court yard and the inside of the place was just amazing. Hardwood Floors, updated kitchen, Flat Screen TV, Stereo w/ disc changer, and new AC. Property owners were very helpful and were great to hang out with. I will stay here everytime I visit the cresent city.

Allison Semancik

Great stay!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful condo. The neighborhood is so quiet and is within walking distance of shops and restaurants, and of course the streetcar. We would definitely come back again and plan on telling all of our friends and family about this great find! Thanks Brandon and Larissa!

great stay in NO

We loved our stay in this beautiful, perfectly efficient and comfortable appartment, owned by lovely, very helpful Brandon and Larissa. A great library of cookbooks,a perfectly equipped kitchen, wi-fi, an incredibly comfortable bed, HBO, and of course the Garden District at your doorstep. Streetcar around the corner, all the great shopping and restaurants of Magazine St. a few blocks away. Our business/vacation stay here was full of treasured memories and sights. With great architecture and art, food, music and soul to spare, NOLA touched us deeply. Many thanks to Brandon and Larissa, and to this great city!! adda and greg

Great little condo for NOLA get away!

This adorable 1 bedroom condo is owned by the greatest couple. My family was in NOLA for the rebuild efforts for the week of Christmas 2007. The owners were very accomidating. The condo had the most comfortable bed with down comforter and mattress pad. My children found the plasma screen TV with WII very entertaining. The owners allowed us to bring our dog and even left my chidren a bag of mardi gras beads and stuffed animal of which they had a blast playing with. The community is lovely and we enjoyed daily strolls down the street car line. This is a must-stay place!




Location,location,location!!!This unit is located in a very secure, quiet part of Garden District. Right next to gorgeous mansions and unbelievably cozy boulevard. I wish they could pack some air from under those trees so that I can take it back to Chicago with me. Exotic, but convenient street car/trolley is only half a block away and it can get you to a crazy French Quarter within 10 minutes. Free parking is provided by the owners. Condo is very clean and cozy.Looks like it has been completely remodelled recently. I will highly recommend it to my friends. Thanks a lot, Larisa. I'm just sorry our vacation was so short, Anastasia

Great Time Off St. Charles

The condo is so nice. You feel right at home the moment you walk in. The price is the best I have ever saw new orleans. Brandon was very helpful and everything was nice. I loved the secured building and the security. I will return to this place.
