Comfortable rental near Tulane & Loyola Universities, easy walking distance to cafes & restaurants

  • 4 of 5

Very clean home was perfect for my needs. Open kitchen with each bedroom having a private bath and a guest bathroom. Back porch is great spot to unwind after a busy day. Have already recommended this rental to friends.

Ideal for a Tulane or Loyola Visit!

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this property for a weekend event at Tulane (Navy vs Green Wave football and tailgate) and were thrilled with our stay! The house has every modern convenience you could want, comfy beds, relaxing back deck, and friendly neighbors who stopped to greet us as we drank our morning coffee on the front porch! Walk around the corner to find delicious Po-boys for lunch, or walk a few blocks further to the streetcar on Carrollton to get to other points in NOLA. The walk to Tulane campus was very easy and the ample parking at the house meant that we did not have to pay on game day. The friendly owners stopped by to check in on us to make sure all our needs were being met. We definitely recommend this to any parents who want to stay a few days to visit their Tulane or Loyola student - or to anyone who is wanting to visit the Garden District side of NOLA.

Fantastic house, fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best properties we have ever rented. The house was beautifully decorated and extremely clean. It was bigger than it appeared in the picture, and the pics don't do the house justice. The owner stopped shortly after we arrived to make sure everything was to our satisfaction, and he was able to answer every question we had about the neighborhood, restaurants, transportation, and great helpful hints. The house is in terrific location--quiet street within a few blocks of the trolley to the French Quarter, easy walking distance to Tulane and Loyola. It was so nice to come back after a crazy day at the french quarter and relax in peace and quiet of this neighborhood. The private driveway has a private gate and is long enough for several cars--no need to park in the street. A very special touch was the stocked refrigerator/kitchen with local brews, water, condiments, and coffee! Oh, there was a full size washer/dryer, powder room, and a comfy pull-out couch in the living room as well. I wouldn't hesitate to rent from them again! This house is especially great if one of your children are considering Tulane or Loyola...it gives you a great opportunity to get to the know the area around the Universities and and sample all of the wonderful things New Orleans has to offer!

Truly a home away from home - MUST STAY HERE! You get what you pay for!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend staying here when visiting NOLA over any other choices!

This neighborhood is clean, historic, peaceful.

The street car is nearby to visit French Quarter, Bourbon St., etc., close to highway if you are driving, close to amenities like grocery and walking distance to great little places like the Live Oak Cafe for breakfast!

The off street parking with gate is a plus. We loved the very CLEAN and artistically decorated house. The kitchen was fully stocked with tools and even had some nice local brews left for us to sample by the owner! Susan was very engaged throughout the process from answering questions and providing info leading up to the stay and through out our stay she was always available and super friendly. The home has two lovely bedrooms w/ private baths as well as a powder off the kitchen area! My favorites included the back deck for relaxing and congregating. We spent much of our time in NOLA, right there! Love the Artistic touches throughout and the beautiful landscaping outdoors which led to the cozy, homey feel. I wish it was mine to keep!

Thanks Tom & Susan!

We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the house and the area. Tom and Susan were wonderful hosts- very responsive and thoughtful- texting to make sure everything was fine and always responding within minutes to our questions. My husband and I were there for our son's graduation for 2 days and then my sister and brother-in-law joined us for the following 3 nights- it was great to have Audubon Park and Tulane University grounds to walk around for exercise and sight seeing. There were many lovely restaurants and bakeries within walking distance and we used the St. Charles Cable Car or Uber to get to the French Quarter. It was also great to have the secure parking for our rental car. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the property.

Wonderfully comfortable and great location!!

  • 5 of 5

Three friends and I stayed at Beneath the Oaks during the first weekend of Jazz Fest 2016. The house was lovely with wonderful detail! The pictures don't do it justice! We needed to take better advantage of the back deck, which was so inviting and comfortable. We will spend more time out there next time! The off-street parking for both cars was a perk not to be undervalued! In a city where parking is at a premium, having a secure driveway to come home to each evening was a luxury I don't ever want to be without again. Had we not had cars, we would have been able to easily get a streetcar just a few blocks away. The neighborhood was quiet, with friendly neighbors and great food nearby. Panola Street Cafe is now on my list of places to eat every time I'm in NOLA. Tom and Susan were attentive and knowledgeable hosts, very accommodating and so easy to work with. They made sure our stay was all we wanted. They are a treasure trove of knowledge about the city and a joy to visit with. We will definitely stay again and will always check the Sawyer's properties before anything else. We highly recommend this property as a comfortable and beautiful place to stay while enjoying all the city has to offer.
