    I have had a wonderful stay. The owner Michael communicates promptly. Before my trip and during my trip. He has a book with lots of good information for your stay on food and parking. His compound is very nice and very clean. The pool looked inviting but way to cold outside. He is very accommodating to different request. When I come back to New Orleans I will be coming back to rent his pool house.

    Nice place to stay!

    For our first trip to New Orleans, my friend and I didn’t know what part of the city to stay in that wouldn’t be noisy and would be safe, plus would provide parking for our rental car. This property fit our needs perfectly! The owner provided great directions on getting into the “Poolhouse” easily; It was very clean and the bed comfy. The owner provided driveway parking for our car, which was great! There is a beautiful pool right outside the pool house - we didn’t get to use it due to the weather. It should be noted the property is about a 20 min drive to the Bourbon Street area and we took an Uber (which cost about $17 each way) to avoid having to park downtown. The owner was very responsive to my questions and was very helpful and nice. Drawback: my friend is 5’0” so she couldn’t use the shelf in the shower (it was hard for me to reach and I’m 5’8”) and she had trouble using the vessel sink in the bathroom. Minor issues and moot if you’re not short. Overall, great place to stay!

    We had the best time staying here. Uber’s were so cheap and only about 15 min to bourbon street. There is a cute little bar at the end of the road with the best pina colada daquariri lol the bed was so comfortable, great air conditioning because New Orleans is HOT. Pool was clean and warm. We had the best time and have already recommended this place to a family friend who is visiting next week possibly!

    Couldn't have asked for better place to stay! Waking up every morning opening the curtains to a view of the beautiful pool. This is the perfect place for a couple. It had everything we needed. Just a short drive to the French quarters and it was so nice to come home every night's to a nice quiet place. It is a very safe location. The owners of this property were so accommodating and allowed us to do an early check in and a late check out. The communication was stellar! The bed was very comfortable and The unit was very clean. We were so happy with our vacation to New Orleans and to find this beautiful place at such a reasonable price. We will definitely be back! Definitely 5 stars!

    Michael and his wife were so friendly and helpful! They gave us local food reviews, live music suggestions, told us stories of local/historical sites, and even shared some homemade gumbo with us. From the second we arrived to the second we left, we felt more a part of their family than their guests. If we return to the area, we will definitely stay with them again. Thanks both of you!

    What a wonderful stay! Michael and Miranda truly went above and beyond to make my boyfriend and I as comfortable as possible, offering us rides and even lent us their car so we can pick up some groceries for the week. Upon arrival we were a little lost, even the neighbors offered us their help! The space was so pleasantly designed and comfortable, if we ever can back down- we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Very comfortable, peaceful and efficient. Excellent alternative to a city hotel.

    The owner was very friendly and attentive. The neighborhood was very peaceful and quiet. We would take this place over any hotel room. The place is priced appropriately. Staying here and taking a short Uber ride/drive to the French Quarter is a smart move. This place is by no means sprawling, but it is way more comfortable and private than a New Orleans hotel, especially when factoring in the pool access.

    The place is amazing and the pool divine.

    If your looking for a cute pool house this is the place but if your looking for privacy this isn’t the place. It’s in the owners backyard and they are home. They own the property next door and they too share the pool that’s right outside your door. So no privacy at all. Can’t stay out at the pool past 9pm. The pool house was very nice but I specifically asked if this was private and they said yes. Thinking you can open your curtains and look outside and boom there are people in the pool starring in at you. Was very upset about the whole set up. Owner is nice but don’t expect privacy as they even have cameras facing the pool. I give the pool house setup a 6 star but the setup as a whole thinking you have your own pool I give a 2 star.

    Absolutely Beautiful!!!

    Really enjoyed our stay at the poolside cottage. Just the right size for a couple. Initially were going to Uber everywhere, but decided to rent a car so that we could explore the glad we did as the home was not really near the streetcars , etc. So with the car... this was a perfect location for us.

Be careful in the surrounding areas. There's a house with a huge Confederate flag literally around the corner from Mike's house. Spotted it when I went for a jog. Besides that I'd def stay here again.

Michael and his wife were so nice and accommodating (we arrived a little earlier than expected and asked last minute if we could check in early —Michael had no issue and everything was ready upon our arrival) and even invited us to watch the Super Bowl with their family and friends. Great hosts. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you so much for the hospitality!

    My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. We were in New Orleans for the first time. The place is great for two people. It is in a safe area, very clean and nicely decorated. The bed is nice and comfortable. The pool area is beautiful but the weather was windy and in the 20's, so we didn't make it in. Parking is tough in New Orleans, so we usually took Lyft and the fares were reasonable. On New Years just after midnight, it took over an hour to get a car and the fares were five times normal rate. I just mention that to say it's easy to get into the city normally, but plan ahead for really large events. I would definitely stay here again.

    The pool house was very updated, beautiful, and looked just like the pictures. However, we found it was a little tight for all of the luggage we had brought for a 7 night stay. Luckily we were there during a time when they happened to have another unit available and it was wonderful of Mike and Oi to be able to let us move into that one. Beautiful, also near the pool, and updated as well it was terrific. Both Mike and Oi were great host/hostess the whole time we were there and they have all kinds of information useful for planning everything from outdoor or indoor excursions to dinning (lots of brochures). We highly recommend this property and owners to anyone visiting New Orleans.

    Michael, the owner, is the greatest. He recommended tasty lunch spots and even gave us drives into the French Quarter. This charming, well-appointed pool house is a short drive from the French Quarter and an even shorter drive from the Bywater neighbourhood. After a day of soaking up the energy of the city, it's nice to retire to these lovely environs. Or heck, spend an entire morning chilling pool side, then head into the city later on, to explore, have dinner or catch live music on Frenchman Street. Thanks Michael ! We'll be back. Matt
