“Hospitable, Immersive, and Convenient! We had already made plans to stay at Destrahan Plantation - the Oldest in Louisiana, so when we learned they are giving Louisiana residents an immersive guided tour (Reg. $22/adult) for FREE with our stay, we couldn’t wait to arrive. Being only a 20 minute drive from New Orleans, Destrahan Plantation is an easy choice for a quality staycation in our state! Booking was super simple through AirBNB, and Melissa’s warm hospitality was immediately felt through her quick and informative responses. She also gave us a heads up on some bonus perks upon booking - we’ll let you have the same pleasant surprise when you book! Check-in was a breeze and the space in the Marie Claire, the larger of two cottages, accommodated our family very comfortably. We slept soundly amongst the Grand Oaks on the lush King Bed with plenty of amenities for our needs/convenience. In the morning, we enjoyed the coffee provided as we watched the sun rise through the Historic setting around us. The gift shop was a short stroll away, and it not only had every Louisiana Souvenir we could imagine, it also served as a full on Louisiana visitors center with hundreds of guides and coupons to attractions throughout our state. Then came the tour! Our guide, Brenda, had a fun and upbeat personality, and her passion for Destrahan Plantation and Louisiana history was clear. The time flew by, and with each new room and corridor, we learn so much Louisiana history. We couldn’t help being in awe of the fact that some of the very Live Oaks that envelop the grounds of Destrahan Plantation today were there when the first owner’s occupied the land and saw generations of enslaved, and then freed people walking and working under their canopies. We would absolutely recommend staying at, admiring, and touring the Destrahan Plantation, and we certainly look forward to returning soon!”
PRIVATE TWO ROOMS AND BATH IN THE HOUSE. It’s located 25-30 min or exactly 26 miles to French Quarter. Both Hwy 90 and I-10 will get you there quickly. The part of the house for rent has 2 bedrooms with king and queen bed and private bath. I live in the other part of the house. The house is secluded and appears somewhat country on the outside, yet this is what's hiding for you on the inside :) Internet, mini fridge, coffee machine, microwave, breakfast essentials, dish TV, Apple TV, Fire Stick.
“Better than we expected and very close to family and friends we were visiting. The special touches, immaculate condition, and amazing bathroom (2 sinks and fabulous shower) added so much to our stay. Aleks was super quick to reply to all questions and requests.”
Half of an historic bracket style double shotgun at the intersection of the Irish Channel and Uptown New Orleans neighborhoods. Original hardwood flooring, brick fireplace and 12 ft. ceilings from the 1880's intersect with bright modern amenities and open floor plan. Great for a fun weekend getaway and business-ready for an extended stay. No cleaning fee!
“Kandise was such a amazing host! The property is in a great location and close for a stroll on Magazine St. My visit was at the time of the Coronoavirus outbreak. Kandise was very accomodating in allowing us to stay after the checkout time to accomodate my flight time. She responds very quickly to any inquiries about the area or the property. I will definitely consider this property again for future visits!”
