What makes this house unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

Herb's Home was perfect for our NOLA vacation. The house is located in a picturesque New Orleans neighborhood walking distance to most places, including restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops AND just a 5 min. walk to Jazz Fest which was amazing to be so close to all of the action. We took short taxi's rides to all of our favorite Music Halls, hung out in the back yard and really enjoyed the place!!! Getting to know Herb was awesome too, he knows everything about the city and it was really helpful to have some local advice.

Most amazing host and property!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived Herb made us feel as if we were there visiting a fried. The apartmemt has all of the amenities you could ever think of (fully stocked kitchen, more towels than you would ever need, great working AC and even fruits and bottles of water). The apt was super clean, a very short ride to French Quarter and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. Staying with Herb was the best decision we made for our trip to NOLA and we will for sure return. If you get a chance to sit down with Herb for a history lesson, you won't be disappointed. Herb, thank for your attentiveness and treating us like family!

Place was amazing but the host made it even better!

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything! Herb leaves nothing to be desired, including bathrobes and bottles of wine and an infinitely hospitable attitude to give us rides and run favors for us and basically just do everything he could possibly do to make our stay better. He is also a vat of information about New Orleans as he is born and raised here so that was incredibly enjoyable as well! I cannot recommend this destination more highly especially given Herb's attention to detail and sincere effort and desire to make every guest have the best possible experience! Thanks for everything Herb!

Perfect in every way. Totally exceeded expectations.

  • 5 of 5

First vacation to New Orleans. We were so lucky to find this lovely flat. Cannot say enough positive about our host, his rental and the location. We are already planning a return trip to NOLA and will stay with Herb again. The apartment is great, the neighborhood hip, close to museums, great restaurants, music and shopping. Except for the New Orleans heat and humidity we could have walked a lot more. We did not need a car to get around... used ride share. Stayed a week and felt like a local.

Cosy, welcoming, very attractive, with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Herb was a wonderful host, who went out of his way to ensure that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, from the amenities in the apartment to giving us a ride to the French quarter. He gave us very useful information, was always available to answer questions or to provide something we might need, and couldn’t have been nicer.

Thank you, Herb!!
