Our first AirB&B stay was a success, thanks to the terrific assistance of Lynn and Mark. They provided "concierge" service that went beyond our expectations.
The property on Royal Street was ideally situated for exploring both the French Quarter and Marigny. We expected to spend a lot of time and money on taxis while in The Big Easy, but we took zero taxis! Instead we walked everywhere. These two historic neighborhoods were much smaller and more accessible than we expected.
Besides the service and location, our unit had a nice kitchen and bathroom. The tankless water heater was an unexpected bonus, greatly reducing my family's stress level, since there was no threat of running out of hot water.
We knew that staying in the city would mean tolerating noise. Some of our neighbors in adjoining units were less considerate than others, and Royal Street does get school bus and horse & buggy traffic in the mornings. But for the price we paid, the pros greatly outweighed the cons, and we believe we got a great value.
