My wife and I just returned from a one week stay at this charming house with it's beautiful decor and artwork. Staying here really allowed us to experience the true spirit and culture of New Orleans ! Everytime we returned it felt like we were coming home. The location as listed is perfect - 1 block to Frenchmen St for great food and entertainment and just a short walk to the Quarter. The Garden Apartment on the first floor was very spacious and incredibly well stocked with everything you would need to enjoy your stay - and then some !! The private pool & courtyard was always clean, well maintained and very nicely lit up at night - very peaceful ! Finally what can you say about Csaba - a kind hearted and gracious host - a great Ambassador to the City of N.O.....went out of his way to ensure everything was seamless. Would definately recommend the River House to anyone looking for an authentic New Orleans vacation - we can't wait to return !!!

Completing the picture are a 500-square-foot westward-facing balcony, with original cast iron and spectacular cityscape views, and lush gardens surrounding the entire “compound” with swimming pool. ... more less
