Tranquility in the French Quarter
The property could not be located any more centrally in the French Quarter of New Orleans. It is set off the street with the bedroom overlooking a tranquil courtyard - it is wonderful to return to after experiencing the frenetic French Quarter for a day. There was little to no noise from the streets at night. Though we did not use it, the kitchen was well equipped. The sitting room has a comfy sofa and large cable TV. I'd certainly return again to both this condo and New Orleans. Thanks!
Charming. Historic. Modernized. Complete.
This is the best possible location. Just behind the cathedral on Royal Street. We always felt safe (you will be behind a private entry in a courtyard). It is very charming-brick walls, and updated-large flatscreen TV. And the closet locks! We walked everywhere. Lewin is a fantastic caretaker. We had some cold damp weather on our week stay. I emailed him about the heat/AC. Within the hour, he had a very new radiator delivered to our condo. It was perfect. The kitchen is tiny but complete. The shower is very cool-two walls are brick! The bed is comfortable. It is so quiet we could even sleep late when we wanted. There is little street noise except sometime for the musicians playing outside. And that is very pleasant. It is first floor. I am ready to return. You won't be sorry if you choose this condo.
Great location, yet Nola quirky!
Having spent the previous 4 nights on Frenchmen, we were glad to get into the FQ seeking peace (not what you usually hear, eh?). And peace is what this place gave us. Nice, relaxing, cool, patio to sit in and relax, have a drink, read, talk...get away from the pace of Nola for just a few!
There was a hitch with the key to our room level not working, but Lewan sent his employee over and it was resolved, thanks!
The apt itself was very small, but we expected that based on the description. I would have liked a more thorough cleaning, but it was sufficient. Most negative was the overly perfumed bedding and the crazy stair-well (not luggage friendly). Most positive was the the inside patio and location!
Simply the Best!
This amazing little space was a quiet respite from the rest of the city, but close to everything. This was our first time to New Orleans. I read the other reviews about it being too small, but it really is a great spot if your traveling with the one you love or by yourself. Safe area, great restaurants near by. The bed was sooo comfortable. The décor was beautiful, and everything was very clean, felt like I had just walked into my own place.
Thousand Oaks, California
Stayed in this condo for 3 nights. The unit was extremely well kept up and clean. Although this was essentially in the middle of the french quarter on Royal where the street is shut down due to all the hubbub, it is quite enough to relax and sleep at any time of the day or night... if that is what you want to do. You can hear in the distance the church bells ever so softly, but the noise from the street is all but canceled out due to the architecture of the building. There were actual instruments hung on the walls which gave it a welcoming and nice touch of the city! I highly rate this unit! Try it out, you will love it!
Location only goes so far
Look very carefully at the photos (That's a Queen bed) this is a really small batchelor. To make the bed you have to pull it out and if there are two of you the person on the inside has to climb over the other person if they want to get out of bed. The bathroom is a converted closet with no bath - a minute sink, shower and toilet. Also it' s dark and not very well equipped: there is only one beside lamp, there is no oven and the kitchen equipment etc. is minimal. For one person looking for a place to crash in a great location it would work, but for any more than one it's being squeezed like sardines in a can. There is air conditioning which is a must, but no off street parking and the area is not one where you would want to leave a parked car. there is a grocery store within a couple of blocks which is handy.
Response from LAS VEGAS CORPORATE - 07/05/2012
Renters was told that this was a studio (meaning small space) and not a Suite or Villa. Renter was provided with photos of the unit before making a reservations. The location is consider the safest place to stay in the French Quarter (700 Block of Royal St. directly behind Jackson Square), steet parking is very limited as renter was told in advance (public parking lot two blocks away next to Jax Brewery 600 Decator St).. Bathroom is small, was never a closet. Read the other reviews... first negative response I have ever had, you just can't make everybody happy. Could have moved renter to another property if they had requested to do so! Complaining after the fact never gives anyone the chance to solve problems and or address issues. In the past, as in the future, I will go out of my way to make sure my renters are happy! Shoud you have additionl questions or concerns please give me a call or email. Many thanks for taking the time to read my response. I do take these reviews very serious!
Cool Condo, Great Location
We stayed 3 nights in this condo which is 1 block off of Bourbon St. and essentially in the middle of the French Quarter on Royal. Easy walking distance to everything in the Quarter. Neat little space for 2 with kitchen, bath with unique brick walled shower, comfortable bed, and large flat screen TV. Court yard is cool. Is off street through a locked door on the street. Heard some street band music in early evening (which is New Orleans, right!) but quiet at night. Easy walk to French Market, Cafe du Monde, river front, half a block or so to St. Louis Cathedral (be sure to see the shadow on the back from Royal St at night, pretty impressive!). Lewin, the owner, is easy to deal with and sets you up with keys that you mail back when you leave. He actually stopped by to see how we were doing one morning when he was in town. Would highly recommend to a couple (or single) who want a unique experience of staying in the middle of the FQ.
very nice small condo in great location
i stayed in this condo for two weeks at the end of January, 2012, and i thought it was great. it is small, and as other reviewers noted it couldn't do more than two people comfortably. but i was solo and it was perfect. a bed; a big flat-panel TV; a kitchen with fridge, sink, microwave, and dishes; bathroom with shower; and wireless internet. also as others note the thing that makes this condo really special is the location: almost directly behind Jackson Square.
the owner will communicate with you via email and mail you a very good welcome packet with keys and instructions. no property manager on site, but i had no trouble finding and using the condo with the info the owner provided. there was no need to contact the owner while i was there. it is set up as self-serve and it worked well. no improvements to suggest.
will definitely consider another stay here on trips to Nola; recommended!

Very cool apartment in a great location
We loved this apartment. A block from Bourbon street but still very quiet because of the hidden entrance. Perfect size for a couple and well equipped with everything we needed.
The owner communicated well and sent us a package with keys and photos (he even recommended a Taxi driver!).
No reservations at all about recommending this apartment. I'll stay here every time I go back.

Location, location, location
Like they say in real estate, its all about location and this studio for 1 or 2 is ideally situated on Royal Street in the heart of the French Quarter. Very quiet at night when you want a good nights rest. Easy walking distance to everything in the Quarter. Nicely appointed with everything you need...I highly recommend. The owner is very attentive and helpful, even recommended a taxi driver who picked up at the airport and return (Baby Ruth).
My husband and I stayed here for a week in our first trip out to New Orleans. The small condo is perfectly situated in the middle of the French Quarter making it super easy and convenient to explore the city--a great home base. Bourbon Street was just a mere block away, so we could easily and safely walk to all the bars, but it was far enough away that you couldn't hear the hustle and bustle of it either.
The room itself is very small--barely enough room for 2 people. There is a small kitchen with a sink, microwave, a small 4-cup coffee maker and a 2 burner electric stove top and a small fridge. The kitchen was quite useful for breakfast and saved us from having to eat out for every meal:) The kitchen is stocked with the bare necessities (a few small non-stick pots and pans that did the trick, a few mugs, plates, bowls, cups and silverware). There were no spices or pantry items--probably due to to the lack of space. When i did use the kitchen, it was hard to find a place to work--there is absolutely no counter space! Luckily, we didn't use the kitchen that much for it to be a big deal.
There is a little grocery store 2 blocks away, Rouse's Market, that was super convenient. It is open from 6am to 1am and carries fresh produce, a deli, and booze! We went here quite a bit for odds and ends. they had prepared food as well. And the prices weren't outrageous--they were on par w/ grocery prices in the northeast.
There is a reclining loveseat up against the foot of the bed that is not seen in the pictures. it was nice to have , but took up quite a bit space, making it hard to maneuver around with suitcases strewn about! it was more comfortable to watch TV from bed b/c your neck would hurt if you sat on the comfy recliners!
The bathroom is very tight--just enough room for a toilet, a tiny sink and a shower stall. It was easier to use the sink in the kitchen to wash your face than the one in the bathroom!
The room looked like it was equipped with wireless internet, although we didn't use it. There was a CD player that we used to listen to radio.
The condo is also quite close to all the "must see" spots of New Orleans--Cafe Du Monde, Pat O'Briens, to name a few. While we were there, we were able to easily walk to Frenchman Street to check out a few music clubs down there (Three Muses to be exact, which was great!) and we also went to a show at the Mahalia Jackson Theater just past the french quarter on the other side of the Louis armstrong Park. We had no issue walking to or from there--although i don't know if i'd walk alone from the theater to the french quarter at night if there wasn't a show. There was quite a number of people walking home from the theater to the quarter making the walk feel quite safe, but from what we heard, the theater borders a more questionable area that warrents tourists to be more alert.
This place also comes with 2 bikes that you can use while down there! This was a really nice option to have. The bikes looked a bit past their prime (lots of rust) but they were functional. They were 2 cruiser bikes that had the old school brakes (no hand brakes, you back pedalled to break! Like little kid bikes!). One had a basket which was really convenient. These bikes allowed us to go down Magazine street and check out some of the shopping further out of the quarter. We did bring our own helmuts to use since we knew we'd want to venture out of the Quarter.
The unit is also has a washer and dryer to use, which was great to have! No laundry detergent or dryer sheets are available, so you'd have to bring your own or go over to the Market down the road to get that stuff.
Overall, this rental was great! The space is very tight, but it's location really makes up for that. I would recommend this place to any couple looking to explore the French Quarter!
Perfect place for the perfect price
This is the ideal rental for 2 people wanting to explore the French Quarter and the surrounding areas. The room was very clean and equipped with all the essentials you would need. The courtyard is a nice little retreat. The process of renting this condo/studio was very smooth and managed well. If renting a car, you can find a parking space you just have to circle the block. There is a ghost story connected with this building that I would love to post, but not wanting to disclose the address I won't. If you rent this condo/studio just google address and it will be there. But what building in the French Quarter is not connect with a ghost story?
I would just like to state that for my first visit to Louisiana could not have been better.
