“In a word: wow! The pictures truly do not do this home justice. Beautiful high ceilings, lovingly furnished and really sweet nice touches from the host such as filtering some water for us for when we arrived, coffee, milk, a book of her own recommendations etc. Our stay in New Orleans was magical and unique and our stay at Carin's was a big part of that. We would even go so far as to say that the area Bywater, is the best neighbourhood in NO with cute bars and restaurants and a generally awesome chilled out vibe. Carin herself was friendly and responsive, could not recommend more!”

“A great stay in NoLa, the place was stylish, clean and really well furnished. The host was great in communicating and making sure we had everything we needed. Although the place is a quick Uber ride, the location was a bit further out then I expected, even after reading the reviews which did say it was a bit of a long walk from the French Quarter. With that said I recommend the stay and would do it again.”

“The space was really everything we could have hoped for. It has so much character and is beautifully decorated while also being thoughtfully designed and equipped for guests. We had everything we needed. The fireplace as a heatsource was my personal favorite part about this space. We had two beautiful days weather wise and one day that was 40 and windy, the consistency of warmth from that fireplace was absolutely paramount to keeping our stay comfortable. The hosts were accommodating and responsive. We walked to and from Frenchman St. late nights, no problem. Perfect NOLA experience.”

French Quarter

History and mystery, the French Quarter is filled with a million details you have to visit multiple times to even get a glimpse of. If you must see Bourbon Street, walk down one block then return to the more civilized areas like Chartres, Royal, or Decatur Streets.

This is where the party never ends in New Orleans. It gets very crowded on weekends and even more so on holidays and Mardi Gras. A lot of drunk people. And a lot of weird things happen here. Be safe, and always have a buddy system.

Tips from New Orleans locals

Get advice about the city from the people who know it best. Local hosts share their tips and recommendations for travelers like you.

What should I pack?

Bring solid walking shoes! Our streets and sidewalks are old - our entire infrastructure is old! if you're spending time walking around, i highly suggest sturdy tennis shoes rather than flip flops or anything dressy.

What's the best way to get around?

Lyft is my transportation of choice, especially when heading to the quarter. We have every mode of transportation that a typical city has, from rental bikes to buses and street cars.

All about New Orleans

Home to great music and spectacular parades, New Orleans knows how to party. While it’s no longer the capital city of Louisiana (an honor it’s held twice, centuries back), it’s still the heart of the state. Visitors flock here to explore nightlife, stroll in the French Quarter, and try Cajun and Creole food. For a distinctly New Orleans visit, stay in an American or Creole townhouse or a shotgun house.

Getting there

A new terminal opened at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) in 2019 to make the overall travel experience more efficient. By taxi or rideshare, it will take you about a half hour, traffic permitting, to get to downtown.

The Jefferson Transit Authority (JET) and the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) offer daily bus departures from the airport to downtown and surrounding areas.

Weather

Just like the vibrant Cajun and Creole food, summers in New Orleans can make you sweat. The peak tourist season in the city takes place at the top of the year, when it’s all about Mardi Gras madness. While the temperatures can average from 50-90 (Fahrenheit) throughout the year, winters are brief.
