Vivian was very accommodating and quickly responded to our needs. Her rules for other guests visiting are firm (just a few moments for pick ups and/or drop offs). And with all of my friends in town for a big festival, it was hard to keep them away. When they picked me up, I was never ready and my few moments took much longer. Although, they were quiet as a church mouse and respectful of her home and neighborhood, rules are rules. Friends don't get you can't stay for more than 10 mins and you need to go back to your car or just go. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to book again unless all of my friends were staying at this AirBnB. So make sure you read the rules and understand the rules and accept the rules. There's no bending here. Vivian's interior was very quaint. The bed was too firm for me, and my back was tight the last day, but everything else was cozy. The neighborhood was very quiet but doesn't offer much. It's a healthy walk to the nearest restaurant (left exiting the property) and if you go right exiting the property, clutch your purse. It is not safe! Every Uber driver told us to not walk that direction. I think I'd prefer better offerings in the neighborhood. If you have a car, you're perfectly ok.

Vivian's is a comfortable and very functional space for families. We traveled with our two children (4yo and 5yo) and the size and layout was great and it was fantastic to be able to cook meals in the beautiful kitchen and do laundry. A short hop to anywhere in the city: French Quarter, airport, Metairie. A great stay!

Great stay. The only downside is that the house only has one bath rooms and the wifi signal is not really good.

Response from Vivian:
The one bathroom is clearly described in the listing profile and perhaps should have been considered more closely prior to booking my place if it was not suitable. The wifi signal was affected due to severe thunderstorm activity that our area had been experiencing for days during Jeff's stay. The entire city was under a flood watch and experienced several power outages as a result of the inclement weather.

This place is a Jewel! I would stay here again and agin. Her home was absolutely wonderful and she was the greatest host you could ask for. This place is close to everything that you need and only a short drive to the French Quarter. Great job Vivian
