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!

Great location! Fun safe neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. What a wonderful part of NO to experience. I have been to NOLA many times but never to this neighborhood. Easy Uber to FQ, Frenchman or CBD but this neighborhood has so much to experience. City Park is right up Esplanade and we spent most of a day there in Sculpture and Botanical gardens. Great restaurants and small markets here. Cant say enough good about Herb as a host. He provides abundant info and history about his city. The apartment was very comfy for 3 well traveled friends together. Ideal for 2. Great NO lush garden space out back to hang out in. Very niceand comfy place! Thanks Herb!

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home to stay in located in New Orleans. Not only was the location perfect, but Herb was also a lovely host. He was particularly accommodating and generous to guests and me. If I ever come back to NOLA, I know where I'm staying!

A little something extra

  • 5 of 5

Lagniappe Suite gave us more than a little something extra. We've been to New Orleans a few times and were looking for a nice, comfortable place to stay away from the usual Bourbon Street location. Staying here, we became part of the neighborhood. Herb is a wonderful host who made us feel welcome and comfortable right from the second we stepped out of our taxi. He gave us a tour of our suite and how to access/work everything. And he even had a snack and bottle of wine ready for us after our day of traveling. We will definitely be staying here again.

True New Orleans Culture

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived to this quaint rental & were greeted by Herb, we experienced Nawlins charm & culture. The place was beautiful as described and Herb was an excellent host. We were concerned about a hotel due to difficult parking so we chose this place. We were able to leave our large vehicle parked on the street with no issues and used Uber everyday to meet our friends. We enjoyed his park across the street and the little cafe at the corner. The kitchen was quaint and completely stocked with whatever you needed. The tub in bathroom was delightful & bathroom was stocked full. Plenty of comfortable seating and bed was so comfortable. We were supplied with waters, coffee and tea which we enjoyed. We were celebrating our 24th year anniversary and when our BFF couple flew in to surprise us, Herb had no issues.as they stopped by to say hello. He even gave me a cookbook after I mentioned how much we were enjoying NOLA foods. Thanks for an enjoyable time. I would defintely stay here again.
