Live like a local

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in New Orleans. The Bywater neighborhood is teeming with culture and hip places to eat and listen to music. The Quarter isn't too far to walk, and Frenchman Street is just around the corner.

Richard was a terrific host, and his co-hosts Tommy and Flora are the sweetest dogs you'll meet. The property had everything we needed!

Highly recommend this alternative to downtown - Live like a local

  • 4 of 5

La Boheme gave us the opportunity to experience life as a local in New Orleans. Close to cool restaurants with fabulous happy hours and delicious food. We enjoyed walking to and from the French Quarter every day either down Royal or Dauphine Streets or via Crescent Park along the river. We recommend checking out the local architecture and wandering around a bit in the evening when the neighborhood lights up and the friendly residents take their dogs out for walks. The neighborhood and weather calls for a beach! And while that's totally unrealistic - The Country Club - just one block away - has a lovely pool and fabulous restaurant that will totally round things out for any visitor.

Our host, Richard, made us feel at home in this spacious and comfortable apartment in his restored home.

We don't think staying in a hotel will give a visitor the same experience as staying here and so we highly recommend La Boheme.

Loved Bywater

  • 4 of 5

Richard Prell is a likable and accommodating host and his apartment suited us very well for our week stay in April. Bywater is a great community for a home base while visiting New Orleans. Like lots of N-O neighborhoods, it's still on the mend from hurricane damage, but going to grow and become an important colorful part of the city for visitors. Only thing missing in my opinion is a grocery store in walking distance, but little deli and restaurants are very close. We did not rent a car after advice that parking can be a challenge. By all means rent bikes, pack good walking shoes, use a ride service and figure out the #5 bus schedule.

We loved La Boheme!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first real VRBO experience and it was great! The owner was very kind and supportive of any of our needs. Richard is a very interesting person and we spent time learning about his history and the history of his property and his pets. What a story! His property is also filled with very lovely photos, paintings and artwork throughout the entire place that bring a personal touch that I did not expect. We loved the neighborhood and felt very safe there. Would definitely recommend, but it is not the place for someone looking for a sterile modern environment. Very eclectic and stylish!

Bohemian jewel in the Bywater

  • 5 of 5

La Boheme is a really lovely home with a classy but very warm and welcoming vibe. I could not have picked a better place to stay! The owner, Richard, and his 2 dogs are (his apartment is next door). The apartment has gorgeous wood ceiling beams and wood doors, a side porch, high ceilings, and other architectural features. The art and furnishings are carefully chosen and give real warmth and character to the place. We felt spoiled to have this amount of space for 2 people, each wirh our private bathrooms- this was a real value! The neighborhood was quiet and cute. We walked to a couple really fantastic restaurants. I would totally recommend this place to anyone- and wiuld stay there again if i could. Richard could not have been nicer.
