Family of 4.

I loved this home away from home. The gretna area was perfect for our stay. We came to New Orleans for the sugar bowl. Short Uber ride to the French quarter ($10). We had a great time here. The house has everything you need and the owners were wonderful to work with. I love old houses and the style of this house was so unique. It was tight for our family of 4, but we had room. Hope to return here again someday.
