Our stay at the Marigny flat was idea. In a perfect location--near enough to the insanity of the Quarter, but also just outside of it. Just a block and a half from the fabulous Frenchmen Street clubs with some great eateries nearby. Lynn and Mark had great recommendations and were wonderfully available and responsive. They helped us trouble shoot some wireless connectivity issues and were kindly flexible when our flights were delayed on our last day. I would absolutely recommend their wonderful flat--it had everything you need, and we were there for a week. I would go back in a heart beat. The location was ideal. We rented bikes from Bicycle Michaels (or Michael's Bicycles?) and saw the entire city (don't miss the ride in the early evening along the Mississippi through Crescent Park--it can be a little hot but still nice in the am for a run or walk). We walked everywhere comfortably. Had amazing food, craft cocktails and old timey (20-30s jazz) music at nearby Three Muses on Frenchmen. The Spotted Cat is literally stumbling distance home and had superlative blues/jazz and a passable beer selection. DBA had the marvelous and old school Treme Brass Band the night we were there and a terrific beer selection. Anything in the Quarter is a 5-10 min. walk. And the marvelous Bywater is only a reasonable 10-30 min. walk, including the fabulous and foodie friendly Paladar restaurant, the NO food coop (if you're a natural/organic hound), the St. Roch Market, Euclid Records, as well as the sometimes arty sometimes quaint single-storied, shotgun homes (so different from the gorgeous wrought iron balconied Royal street in the Quarter). Having a washer/dryer was essential, since it ended up quite a bit warmer than we expected. The shower worked great--always enough hot to address our unexpectedly, mild hangovers each morning. The kitchen was outfitted just enough to meet our needs of an occasional meal in. The king-sized bed was amazing, the decor was lovely and eclectic. This is a NICE place, so don't tear it up with drunken frat buddies, but you can definitely have a nice sit down on the lovely front porch in the provided camp chairs with a homemade old-fashioned in the afternoon and watch the other tourists making the walk through the Triangle to Frenchmen. A couple nights we turned in a little early and needed some ear plugs, but not unreasonable considering our proximity to Frenchmen. The neighbors upstairs have a couple of lovely dogs and were very friendly (especially considering we were just short-timers!) I arrived a couple days earlier than my husband and felt completely comfortable as a single lady with the 1 1/2 block walk to and from Frenchmen later at night. A week was perfect, and not cause there wasn't more to see, but because our stomaches and livers needed a break from fabulous food and drink :-) Hope we have the chance to stay there again!
