Other things to note

- Belle-Mère is an in-law suite connected to our home. We live here full time and are glad to share our home with you.

- New Orleans is a beautiful city with lots to see. As in all neighborhoods of New Orleans, or any city for that matter, be safe and be smart! Don't walk alone at night. Taking a cab, Uber or Lyft home at night is always the better idea.

- As many insects are indigenous to our area – particularly ants, mosquitoes and Palmetto bugs – we recommend keeping all doors and windows closed and that you do not leave food on counters or tables. Our home is serviced for pests by a licensed professional exterminator on a regular basis. Because bugs and other critters are common in New Orleans we make every effort possible to eliminate the occurrence of pests in our home.

- Liability exclusion clause: By agreeing to stay with us, you agree that you will not hold the hosts personally liable.

- The exterior of our home is monitored with security cameras. Signs are posted on the property.

Such wonderful hosts and a beautiful home. Great location with plenty of places to visit within walking distance. Anything outside of walking distance can be easily accessed by public transportation or an inexpensive Lyft/Uber. I could not recommend this place more highly!

Beautiful little studio/one bedroom. The space is definitely cozy, but the design choices and comfortable furniture make it a great home away from home. It was the cleanest airbnb I have ever stayed in. Very nice bathroom amenities provided.

Wonderful experience at Greg & Danielle's. Parked right in front. Great apt. - CLEAN, attractive and located in a pleasant neighborhood with restaurants within walking distance. Enjoyed morning strolls to the Ruby Slipper for breakfast. French Quarter is just a $4 Uber away! We'll definitely book again!

I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to New Orleans. Greg and Danielle's place was perfect for our party of 3. All the amenities we needed, good communication and Greg has great recommendations. The place is walking distance to Frenchmen Street and the Quarter but far enough to avoid the noise and craziness and get a true neighborhood experience. St Roch's Market is just 2 blocks away and we were there everyday for coffee, food and drinks. I would stay here again!

Truly one of the nicest air bnb spots I have ever stayed. Brand new space with every detail lovingly included, and super close to the French Quarter and lots of other fun activities. The host was incredibly kind, even helping us move our luggage. Would definitely recommend.

Danielle and Greg were great hosts and offered up awesome tips and places to see. Their home is really lovely and the mother-in-law suite was the perfect size for two people. Also, communication was easy and quick. Enjoyed feeling like a local in their neighborhood. Will definitely stay here again if I make another trip to New Orleans.

Danielle And Greg User ProfileDanielle And Greg is a superhost.

A cool couple that wants to meet you!

You will be in good hands when you stay with us. Our travel and unique life experiences have taught us how to make you comfortable. In 2009 we quit our day jobs, got married and spent the next for 2.5 years traveling full time. Landing in Miami, Florida in February of 2012, we hosted many in our tiny Condo. We moved to New Orleans in October of 2015 and have spent the last year and a half renovating our dream home in this magical city.

Over the last 7 years we have built many friendships, discovered and learned more about ourselves, people and the world than we ever could have imagined.

We have great history of hosting people in our temporary homes throughout the US and world. We use Air BnB, and other websites/organizations to facilitate guests in our home. We ❤️Air BnB, and offer our guests a great experience.

If you're interested in business and entrepreneurship, you will enjoy staying with us. Ask about our startup company Beauty Butler, our patent pending makeup organizer. It has been exciting as we work to grow our business. Just look up Beauty Butler Makeup Organizer in to learn more.

We are computer geeks and internet junkies we love to utilize technology for learning, exploring, researching, completing tasks, and keeping in touch with friends and family.

We love all types food :). We are not foodies, just love trying new cuisines and restaurants. We try not to overindulge, but sharing conversation over a nice meal is always very nice.

We enjoy experiencing the sights and sounds of new locations. We have been on numerous walking and biking tours, and have walked many miles in each place we visit. We look forward to many more enjoyable walks in around our new home we hope you can join us for a few.

Danielle- I am the founder and creator of Beauty Butler Makeup Organizer. I am also a Certified Orthotist I specialize in designing and fitting helmets on infants with positional plagiocephaly...a condition where a baby's head is becomes abnormally flat from pressure. I travel full time for work so I am away from home 4 nights a week.

Danielle- My interests are decorating, exploring New Orleans, food, costumes, history, thrifting, vintage, art & adventure, and last but not least, I love burlesque!!!! New Orleans is a city with a thriving burlesque and performance art community. There is almost a show or two every night of the week.

Greg- I enjoy working with various forms of technology. Particularly productivity tools such as computers, the internet, mobile computing, applications and software. I am a smart phone junkie! Once I learn techniques and tips, sharing this information with others to help make their day to day routines easier is what I enjoy most.

Greg- I am regularly working toward improving myself as a person. It is a great challenge, and helps me avoid boredom. I have come a long way, and can see there is a long way to go. I guess it would be called living life, and it is a great journey:)
