About Jacqui Post
I'm a native New Orleanian, yet I have traveled the globe. I'm a retired attorney who now works in the real estate industry in my beautiful neighborhood of Uptown. A couple of years ago when my father passed away, my sister and I became responsible for caring for our 90 year old mother. Consequently, I stay at my mother's house in the suburbs much of the time. After having happily traveled using VRBO myself for 20 years, the idea came to me to start using my own home for short term rentals and VOILA'! My own little "cottage industry" (pardon the pun!) was born.
Jacqui Post purchased this House in 2012
Why Jacqui Post chose Uptown and Carrolton District
My house is nestled amongst the beautiful oak trees that have made Uptown New Orleans famous, right across the street from Palmer Park, where you can catch the streetcar and head toward the French Quarter or, if you're in a hurry, there's also a cab stand or the bus stop just across the park. If you want the real feel of living in New Orleans in its most sought-after neighborhood, in a real historic Victorian home, then The Dubliner is for you!
What makes this House unique
I allow dogs (sorry, no cats) and there's a doggie door and a great secure, fenced backyard for them - and you! Definitely plan to spend at least a little time enjoying the gorgeous 12' x 24' back porch; there's an outside seating group to use as a den, or take your dinner outside (after preparing it in my fantastic open, large gourmet kitchen or get it from Robert's grocery down the block, or, heck - take it out if you want from one of the many, many restaurants within walking distance of the house on Carrollton Avenue or Oak Street).
Outside only, please! Ashtray provided.
Dogs only, with pre-approval.
Minimum age of primary renter:25
Max guests:4 (sleeps up to 4 adults)
Please, no loud voices or noise on the back deck after 10 pm!

Lovely house and good location for various sights and downtown. House was clean. Lot of owners own personal al items which did not bother me so much as there was not so much room for our own stuff in kitchen, bathroom
Having said that would recommend the house
The house was as described and I called the owner because in the backyard there was some property damage and I wanted her to know about it. She was so nice and helpful , it was a wonderful experience. Thanks Jackie!
Adorable home, overall, however, needs some TLC, as well as cleaning. To be fair, there was bad weather the previous weak, however, that doesn't compensate for the overall state of the home. Vents need to be cleaned (some mold), many kitchen items unclean (had to clean what we used prior to using), multiple light bulbs out (2 out 3 in a master bedroom ceiling fan; another over the kitchen island), etc.
The last night in the home (stayed six nights), I had a small/baby roach in my (master) bed, and my mother had three in her bedroom. She couldn't sleep that last night, so we were glad we didn't experience these prior to leaving.
Owner could be much more responsive/communicative. I had to ask for the check-in instructions the day we were to arrive (which is written in a manner that she copies/pastes well in advance of someone's arrival, however, she forgot to send to us, I'm guessing) and check-out instructions (that's a first for me in many VRBO/home away stays).
Location was good, though the streetcar near the home was not operating. A bus handled that portion of the line, however, so not a problem. Just wish we knew, as a pretty scary homeless woman approached us to tell us this (and also ask for money) and then got quite rude upon learning that we were not going to be paying her.
Interesting property and loved NOLA. Would not stay here again, and really question the many "reviews" that say that they would stay here again "if it's available".
One last thing to note - and it's a BIGGIE - the owner lives in this property (receives mail there, so it's obvious), and most of the rooms are filled with her personal belongings. It's an odd feeling for sure, given that this is not noted in her description. If this is to be the case, I would highly recommend an owner clearly stating this in the property description. Also, would recommend removing personal toiletries (YUCK) - emptying all bathroom drawers of things like hair brushes, tooth brushes, shampoos, lotions, etc. Especially removing the loofa sponge in the master shower (ick) and the sensodyne toothpaste from that shower (so odd).
I will say that I am sorry that this house was obviously not the right fit for you, however 4 years of 5-star reviews tell a more accurate story than any “rebuttal” I can make.
New Orleans Home
Great house and location! Just the house for our trip. Really enjoyed the deck and private backyard. Even our two dogs got to enjoy the comfort of home with their doggie door! Our trip was too short, so when we come again I will rent again if it is still available.
This is truly one of our favorite homes we have stayed at through VRBO! It has everything you could possibly need or want and the owner takes great care to make everything comfortable and cozy. Wonderful kitchen and back yard, where we spent most of our time! We cannot wait to go back and will definitely stay there again any chance we get.
Our Third Stay at the Dubliner
This property just gets better every time we stay! We've stayed here three times in the last four years.
The owner continues to improve and update the home.
The owner is a delight to work with and is very responsive to reasonable requests.
This location is very convenient to shopping, dining, transportation and NOLA attractions.
New Orleans is a city unlike any other. Its historic architecture, history (even haunted history!), the French Quarter, Uptown, Audubon Park, City Park, several famous universities and unique food and cultural have made us famous world-wide. We offer some of the most famous festivals in the world, including Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest and French Quarter Fest, but we celebrate EVERYTHING! There’s a festival honoring someone or something nearly every weekend. But chances are what you’ve heard most about are our food and music and we have plenty of them both all over the city. We have thousands of restaurants, hundreds of music clubs and hundreds more just plain ol’ bars. We love our “cocktails,” which, (did you know?) were invented here! We’re known as “The Big Easy” for good reason: if you can’t relax and have fun here, you may as well stay home!
