About Rodney & Marnie

I am a migrant film worker making movies in New Orleans. My partner Marnie and I came here from Hollywood to work on a film and fell in love with the city. At first we we're VRBO guests, now we're VRBO hosts. We split our time between L.A. and LA. We love to travel and spend any time we can in exotic foreign places. We enjoy meeting people from all over and hosting them in the fabulous city of New Orleans. The culture, food and history are as rich and exciting as any we've found in the world.

Rodney & Marnie purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Rodney & Marnie chose New Orleans

While our neighborhood is quiet and comfortable, it offers easy access to all the fun and festivities of New Orleans. I especially love going to Riccobono's Panola Cafe just a block away. Evenings you can walk or take the streetcar to Carrollton Station for cocktails then carry on to Jacques-Imo's or the Mellow Mushroom for dinner. When in the mood for some more serious frivolity, the French Quarter is only a 15 minute drive. For family fun, Audubon Park and the zoo are close by. We love this neighborhood, so will you!

What makes this apartment unique

* Walk! This neighborhood is very walkable (78 on Zillow) with lots of good restaurants and bars within a mile.

* Convenient access to all the fun of New Orleans.

* Quiet, clean, comfortable residential neighborhood.

* St. Charles Streetcar is just 2 blocks away.

* Taxis are accessible and usually reliable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lenette and her family were great guests. Communication and requests were clear and reasonable. They left our house clean and in good condition upon leaving. We'd be happy to host Lenette again and recommend her to other hosts.

Beautiful house, perfect for families to share a wonderful vacation in New Orleans!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL experience with this house! This is a beautiful home in a quiet, uptown New Orleans neighborhood with a fantastic porch overlooking a park. It is minutes from grocery stores, bakeries and restaurants, Costco, and the French Quarter. Street cars are just a few blocks away. The house was very clean, the decorations and furniture are lovely, and the beds very comfortable. The kitchen has everything needed. A past review mentioned “not enough pots” but the hosts more than made up for that with brand new pans and pots in the cupboards! Most people eat out when in New Orleans, but we were hosting a Wedding Rehearsal Dinner so needed to cook. The owners are wonderful – easy to email and text, and helped us immediately when we had a small hiccup with reservations. I would highly recommend their home!

House infested with roaches

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in the house for a bachelorette weekend . Upon arriving ,the house looked great, but things quickly turned sour . We saw many roaches big and small in the kitchen , living room , and bedrooms . At 2am we were packing up our things to get out of Dodge . The second star is because the owners were nice enough to move us to another home that they own that was newer , nicer, and didn't have roaches . The owner said they thought the roach problem was taken care of but it was not .

Perfect house for our stay in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Spruce Street. The decor is darling, the bedrooms are all so well done and it was a great place for 8 women to spend the weekend for a conference in NOLA. The house had everything we needed. Beautiful place. Thank you!

A very nice stay in a house that slept eight very comfortable. Full kitchen! Smart TVs and cable plus darn good wifi. Big dining table and a fully stocked kitchen on utensils. Washer/dryer. No complaints! Parking was good. Three blocks from St Charles Street Car. We would rent again. Our questions were answered in minutes. A true find

Beautiful house in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful house for three nights with our family. There were 6 adults and 5 children. There was plenty of space and the small children slept comfortably on the couch bed.

Pros: the location was convenient to all of the attractions. We took the street car all the way to the French Quarter (this was fun, but make sure you allot around 45 minutes because it makes frequent stops).

We loved that the house was decorated in an upscale modern decor with nice touches. The house came with plenty of towels and extra bed linens, washing detergent, paper towels, trash bags, etc. There was plenty of parking and we were able to easily use Uber one night.

The backyard area was nice and we spent some time hanging out in that space. There is not a grill or outside lights, but that was no big deal.

Our one and only recommendation is that the owners provide more pots and pans for people who want to cook. We cooked dinner at the house 2 out of 3 of the nights. There weren't any baking sheets and what they had was minimal. This wasn't a big deal but we probably would have packed a few pots and pans since we were cooking for 11 people.

Overall, we highly recommend this property. The owners were very friendly, professional, and easy to communicate with. The place was in great shape and in a good location. It might be fun for the owners to buy a guest book so that people can write positive reviews and give suggestions on what they did (maybe they have one, we didn't see it).

If we did it again, we probably would have stayed a couple more days. We had so much fun and didn't get to see everything that was on our list. Some of our trip highlights included eating beignets at Cafe Beignet, eating famous charbroiled oysters at Dragos, going to the WW 2 museum (4 adults, one 14 year old boy), going to the Insectarium/Butterfly Museum (2 adults, 2-3 year olds, 7, 8 year old), going to Storyland Park (good for smaller children), going to the zoo, and the aquarium.
