About Nicelle Herrington

All my life working in the entertainment industry both my husband and I know luxury. We are constantly inspired by the south and this amazing city of New Orleans. We wanted to take something that had been left for decay and turn it into to something beautiful. We feel the property is well designed, amazingly decorated and ready to be enjoyed in its full southern glory!

Nicelle Herrington purchased this house in 2012

Why Nicelle Herrington chose Downtown

It had a quite elegance just decaying on the street behind us, we just had to bring it back to life again.

What makes this house unique

STEPS FROM JAZZFEST... You will not need a car, walking distance to cute restaurants and shops.. Bike to the French Quarter... This property was a labor of love and perfect for the discerning travel that wants to live like a local.

Great property, friendly and responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. We stayed during Tulane graduation with multi-generations of our family. I'd highly recommend this house!

The house was lovely- beautifully and thoughtfully decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable. Lots of closet space and mirrors for a girls get away such as ours. Neighborhood was safe and walkable and just a short uber ride to everything. Nicelle was very flexible with our scheduling and accommodating in general. She was very forthcoming with suggestions on food/outings, etc, and either her or her assistant were always easily reachable. The house was very clean, and they even had a bottle of prosecco waiting for us! The only sticking points were a lack of soap in the house (which they remedied when we brought it to their attention) and the upstairs shower has a nice aesthetic but poor functionality- the floor was just constantly wet. There is a lack of comfy places for a large group to sit in the house but we spent most of our time out on the town so it wasn't a huge issue. Also, the back yard/pool area is also the owners backyard- you can basically see right into her kitchen, so that was unexpected and could feel uncomfortable for some. The weather was too cool for us to use the pool, so we didn't spend much time back there. The pool looked lovely, though. And our space still felt private. Overall, it was a great experience. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Nicelle!

Amazing home and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We have been lucky enough to stay here several times over the last year. We have come as a couple, with friends and also with our young children. The house is perfect for any type of getaway and it is beautifully decorated yet comfortable and homey at the same time. What truly makes this house special are the owners, Nicelle and TG, who invite you into their city and family in such a welcoming way. When we had a late flight, Nicelle left us a snack and bottle of wine for when we arrived. When we brought our children, TG went out and brought us all back the most amazing donuts we had ever had. Nicelle warmed up the pool in January so that our kids could swim. I could go on and on! Their hospitality keeps us coming back again and again!

The house location is perfectly central (2 mile walk to the quarter, less than a mile to City Park, and of course, just a few short blocks to the Fairgrounds). Don't forget to check out Nicelle's hot list of restaurants and places to visit. We have tried many of them and she has never steered us wrong!

Great NOLA Rental

  • 5 of 5

Both spaces are fantastic! super clean, great layout, lots of lighting. Great place to pre-party before you head out into the city. It's a little distance from the craziness so be prepared to get ubers/lyfts which are not a problem in NOLA. Great food is near by so if you're not motivated to head into the city, don't feel like you have to.

The pool is shared, which can be a little awkward if you let it. The small loft is behind the main house, which again can be a little awkward but just walk on by.

Kitchen is completely stocked with utensils, flatware, drinkware, serving sets etc so don't feel as if you need to bring anything and that includes speakers as the house has a SONOS!

I would definitely recommend the house. Host is very nice and welcoming.

Excellent time in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

My party of 6 guys really enjoyed our time at Nicelle's spot. She was extremely responsive during the booking process and even after we arrived. We were impressed with the neighborhood itself and were very happy that there were restaurants and a food market within walking distance. We would definitely like to stay there again. The heated pool was definitely one of the highlights of our stay!
