I share the other side of the lower house with my two dogs, Flora and Tommy who also enjoy meeting new guest.

Charming... Authentic... felt like home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our 3-night stay in NOLA. (We were 4 adults on a Mother-Daughter trip.) We were able to experience ordinary lifestyles in the city and were also in easy reach of the Quarter for food and fun! We walked (about a mile) to Jackson Square in the mornings and took an Uber ($10-ish) back home at night.

The house itself is very old and quaint — unique (antique) furniture pieces and great New Orleans art! We loved it! It is not new and it is not perfect, which we preferred to a hotel or modern construction. Beds were comfy with lots of pillows. Kitchen was great — well furnished, and we were treated w/bagels and fixings in the fridge when we arrived.

Bonus features were the neighbors! Friendly and helpful! The owner was away when we stayed, but his assistant (John) was super. He greeted us when we arrived and gave us a brief run through of the house and neighborhood, including tips for getting to other areas in the city. We met the adjoining neighbors as well; all very nice. (Note: Neighbors were noninvasive; but, we enjoy meeting people so we engaged in conversation.)

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the pups — Flora & Tommy. Flora hung out on our porch most of the time, but was never in the way. We let them in the house a couple times; both were sweet and obedient.

I would definitely book this home again when visiting NOLA!

Great place - friendly neighbors!

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely, very comfortable and has everything you need. In addition to some beautiful photography on the walls there are also great dogs living on the property to befriend. Richard was very easy to work with and we loved meeting him. Will definitely stay here again when we get the chance.

A charming, vintage New Orleans home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

Located in an artsy, hip neighborhood called Bywater, Richard's La Boheme rental is a great place to stay away from the rowdy, touristy French Quarter crowd. His two darling dogs welcomed us, there's a pub right on the corner, and we were able to park our rental car right in front. We'll be back!

LOVED our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place...the neighborhood, the apartment, Tommy and Flora the resident pups, Richard and his assistant John... Just a wonderful place to relax and recover when we weren't running all over this special city. We walked EVERYWHERE from the Bywater: French quarter, Frenchman street, all the way to the WWII museum... But there's some really great stuff within blocks of Richards place. Wonderful bars, restaurants (we ate at the Country Club a block away for our 10 year anniversary last night and it was fabulous) , coffee shops. A highlight was hanging on the front porch with Richard, John and the pups, sharing stories and laughs. We highly recommend Richards place.. I know it will be our go-to spot when we come back to Nola.

Authentic NOLA Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Staying here gave us the real flavor of NOLA!! The house has so much character - a real New Orleans vibe! And its great on space! We liked being close to the French Quarter, but not in the French Quarter. In the evenings, we would come back to our charming little neighborhood, where we found several great restaurants and bars just blocks away! Richard was very accommodating, and we enjoyed our chats on the front porch. But the dogs, Tommy and Flora, stole the show!
