Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I have been married for 10 years and have 3 young children, 6 yrs.,4 yrs., and 1 yr. we have had the pleasure of staying in countless B & B's, VRBO's and cabins. This property is hands down a 5-star experience. All the sheets, towels, linens, pillows and kitchen equipment are brand new. The house is as clean as it can be and best of all, it is clutter-free. Simply elegant and not meant for the Bourbon Street Rebel Rouser. True New Orleans Architecture. Great location!,

The Pitt Stop

  • of 5

My son and daughter-in-law and their two boys and my husband and I stayed for 5 nights. We were in town for a wedding. The house is charming and we had plenty of room. The beds and pillows and bed linens need to be updated. The place has tons of character and we loved the location. Right across the street from Langenstein's grocery, good parking. We walked to Audubon park one day and then drove over there (only a mile) and walked along the path for another 2 miles daily. So lovely. We will definately rebook this house in the future.

Great location, feels like home!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the "Pitt Stop" for 4 nights and loved the location. It's convenient to pretty much any tourist activity you can think of...just a few blocks from the St. Charles Ave streetcar, walking distance to Audubon Park, great restaurant options nearby. Having Langenstein's across the street was a big plus! The home was clean and offered ample space for 4 adults. The owner was quick to reply to my texts regarding Internet connection and parking issues. I felt I could only give 4 stars because we all found the beds to be uncomfortable and the sheets and dishwasher need upgrading. Also, the CDs were in the wrong cases (Jimmy Buffet cd in Jonny Lang case), although I'm sure this was done by previous visitors and isn't really something the owner can control. My suggestion is just put it on WWOZ and go (or use your own cd)! Otherwise, we had everything we needed and appreciated having the Keurig for coffee on the go. Loved having the his and hers sinks in master bath as well as a nice, big shower. We had a great weekend experiencing New Orleans!

Charming Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with a wonderful location! I was a little worried about being right across the street from a little grocery store, but it closes at 6 or 7, so no late night noise or traffic. The store has everything you might need, and a liquor store was within walking distance down the street. The house is as pictured-nice bedrooms and beautiful bathrooms. Everything we needed was there-well, stocked kitchen, linens, and even wood for the fireplace for a cool January stay. The home itself is charming and has been refinished while still keeping the original beauty. We will definitely stay again on our next visit to New Orleans!

Beautiful House is great location

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't believe we stubbled on the beautiful house is a great location! We used it as a getaway for 3 couples for my sons baptism weekend. I am from the area originally but have moved away. My family still loves there (in Metairie) and we love to stay in town whenever we get a chance. This was a perfect relaxing house for old friends to reunite and spend some quality kid-free time together (while the kids were at the grandparent house). The house was impeccably clean and decorated like a perfect New Orleans home. Love all the architectural details! I felt as though I was really staying in someone's home. Only critique would be the sofa bed wasn't very comfortable--but haven't ever slept in one that was so we were expecting it...

Thanks again for a wonderful weekend (and sorry--this review was long overdue!)

Great accommodation and location!

  • 5 of 5

Fine old house, everything you need including the wonderful backyard and barbecue dining area. Having Langteins grocery across the road is a huge benefit. Short walk to the St. Charles streetcar line. Highly recommend this location after our first but not last visit to NOLA. Very smooth transaction. Thanks Steve for sharing your home!
