you do need to plan showers; we found that a second shower gets a little cool
the bed is pretty comfortable, and the sofa makes into a bed that our third traveler said is fine to sleep on
we loved this home! we stayed in this place for over a month and everything was wonderful: well stocked kitchen, beautiful bathroom, tastefully decorated, very comfortable bed, etc
and, yes, nicole, that bathroom renovation is a complete success! it's darling, and the lighting is actually great for putting on makeup, which seems to be a challenge in so many bathrooms for some...
the kitchen was stocked with enough cookware and staples that we made pancakes, scrambled eggs, and biscuits and gravy while we were there; the pancake mix, syrup, and seasonings were even supplied...
the house was clean and inviting
clean and comfortable
that is not to say that the central heat and air don't keep the house comfortable, because they do
the house has been renovated, but they kept all the original architectural features: soaring ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors, transoms and millwork
you can also walk to frenchman/merigny and french quarter (about 30 minute walk)
peaceful and beautiful little home with so much character
it couldn't have gone more smoothly, communication was great
great neighborhood--quiet, safe, easy parking on the street at all times of day and good walkability/ uber access to everything
this was an amazing location in an exciting and beautiful city
the neighborhood is quiet and we felt completely safe
there are several restaurants and small grocery stores within walking distance, as is esplanade avenue, which gets my vote for the most beautiful street in the world
easy and safe 20min walk down esplanade to french quarter
