My girlfriend and I stayed here for the first weekend of Carnival. Margaret (the proprietor) was an absolute delight. What a cool lady! She (and her assistant, whose name I forgot - sorry) went way out of her way to give us all kinds of local intelligence, which made our trip even better. For example, we wanted to do a jazz brunch on Sunday. Margaret and her neighbor, Mike, who runs a B&B down the street, suggested Buffa's (www.buffaslounge.com), which was just an awesome experience. The band there, the Some Like It Hot Band (www.somelikeithotband.com) was great too. So if you read this, Margaret and Mike, thanks!
The location could not be beat. Situated in a quiet residential section of the Marigny, we were steps (3 minutes walk) from all the Frenchman Street music venues (e.g., Snug Harbor - www.snugjazz.com and the Spotted Cat) - and restaurants too numerous to list. The Little Easy is also two minutes away from the Krewe du Vieux (www.kreweduvieux.org/parade.html) Mardi Gras Parade route and the R Bar (http://royalstreetinn.com/about/). The French Quarter is a 7 minute walk. Pauger Street turns into Bourbon Street once you cross Esplanade.
The house itself was nice. The big story there is the hot tub area. Its outside but there is a roof and privacy walls. The hot tub was a great way to melt away the strain and sins that go with walking all over NOLA all day and night.
In short, we loved our stay and the people. Geaux! And say hi to Margaret for us.
