We can't complain one bit! This place was exactly as advertised with a few unexpected benefits. Pictures rarely matchup with what you get, but in this case the pictures barely do it justice. The decor was amazing and really set the mood. I've read on here complaints about the neighborhood, but unless the gang members, prostitutes drug dealers, and drug users took the weekend off it's not a dangerous neighborhood, just old and maybe a little neglected...maybe it's a part of the character of the area. At the end of the day we felt comfortable and safe at all times, and the neighborhood was quiet. The
Kitchen was equipped with all the creature comforts of home. I like to cook and entertain, so I was very pleased when I found the cookware and equipment was not shabby at all. And the shower is AWESOME!!! Well my wife and I thought so. I have to admit it's small, but if you can fit, all the buttons and features, take they personal hygiene exercise to the next level. The beds were also exceptional and provide for restful sleep.
As for parking, we had two separate cars, a newer model F150 and Jeep. It was a tight fit, but we made it work. It was a team effort, but backing in the Jeep and the F150 made it all possible.
After we parked the cars, the rest of the time we took Uber and no trip was more than 12 bucks. Everything is super convenient. And the place met the most important requirement of all, the wife was super happy and that was what I wanted.
I think that's everything I wanted to touch on... I would highly recommend this place to anyone. And I've spent a lot of time in hotels and traveling for work and some for pleasure; the value is there.
This house served our needs with my sister who is in wheel chair and my husband and I. All one level and only one step to the porch. It was quiet at night. The house was very clean, neat and cute. Beds are comfortable and the oversized shower was a plus. The few things that we would suggest would be: Either a Mr. coffee maker or a K Cup machine. That antique perkulator pot just doesn't cut it. An extra blanket in the bed rooms. We got cold one night and used the comforter from the unused bedroom and maybe some sugar and flour. We also would have swept the floors if there was a broom or sweeper. Other than that this place was great and we would recommend. We went to the Joint for supper one night and it was so amazing. If you stay in this area you must try the Joint. Phillippe was very helpful.
Big Mamas is the most comfortable place front and back yard plenty of room in the house with all the kitchen amenities to function very well, quiet neighborhood, centrally located near all New Orleans attractions including Hara's Casino. We had a great time and comfortable all the way with our home away from home. Definitely my only go to for New Orleans unless they are already booked. Phillipe the Concierge/caretaker was extremely professional and was only a phone call away.
Thank you Sallie and Phillipe! The house made our vacation complete. until the next time!!
