Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I traveled from Italy to stay in the Jena Street Home. It was spacious and clean. The neighborhood was delightful with plenty of restaurants with in walking distance to choose from. Ironically, a hair salon with in 3 blocks for us to relax and have our hair styled for a night our on the town.

Rebecca was a great host with all her neighborhood recommendations to eat.

We will defiantly stay here again.

Lovely home, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable, charming home in a great location. It's in a quiet neighborhood away from the noise of the Quarter, yet only a few blocks from the St. Charles trolley that will take you to the Quarter, WW 2 Museum and other sights. Good restaurants are walkable from the house, and the owner is very helpful.

Great NOLA House

  • 5 of 5

Rebecca's house is lovely and in a wonderful area. She is the best host ever. Any problem (and there was only one) was

fixed quickly and efficiently. She was great to communicate with. The house is gorgeous! We had six couples staying there.

There was plenty of room. So glad we found this house to stay in. Would recommend to anyone! Thanks, Rebecca.

Awesome, spacious and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

Rebecca was a great host- she communicated with me often and quickly, had the house all set up for us when we got there and made sure everything was alright after we check-in. Very professional.

My friends and I were simply stunned with the size, comfort and feel of this beautiful home. I was expecting a decent size place, but when I walked in upon arrival I was blown away by just how much space there was in the house- both for sleeping arrangements but also for sitting and hanging out. Even the yard was far larger than I anticipated.

The house is a short car ride from downtown and other fun neighborhoods and even within walking distance to a few restaurants and bars.

I would absolutely not hesitate to stay here again- really, really perfect for my friends and I.

Great size and location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect size and had plenty of New Orleans charm. The location was central and we were able to get around really easily via uber or our own cars. Parking was fine. The host was very responsive and great to work with.

There are towels, soap and plenty of dishes. Bring your own spices if you plan on cooking. The house is really big and echos a lot. Be aware that the neighbors might report you for making noise. We got a noise complaint one night and we were not loud at all. Not sure what neighbors reported us but just be mindful.

I would recommend and stay there again.
