Guestbook comments from the manager

We hope you will love our beautiful uptown New Orleans home!

Although the home was built circa 1910, we have just finished MAJOR renovations and the home is fully equipped with brand new furniture, appliances, central air and heat, flat screen cable TV with DVD players, modern kitchen, etc.

It is a quick 10 minute drive to downtown New Orleans and world-famous French Quarter.

The house fit group perfectly. It was clean and quiet with historic charm which was exactly what we were looking for. Having a good coffee shop across the street only made it better.

LOVE living like a local! NOLA

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Dryades House for the 4th time July 21-26, 2017. It is a warm, cozy, funky, comfortable home away from home. There is more than ample space, a kitchen, washer/dryer....all the amenities you could want in a vacation rental. The management and owner are quick to respond and give help where needed. Love staying here over a hotel. The price is right, there are two bedrooms here, a parlor, 2 bathrooms....comfort and amenities unlimited! There are wonderful eateries in the neighborhood that you can walk to! For example, Charlies Steakhouse is ACROSS THE STREET! The food is sublime, management and staff there treat you like friends and family. If you want to be in a quiet and comfortable place for your NOLA stay, book this property. You won't be disappointed.

Still a Gem

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned for our second stay at this home, and couldn't be more thrilled. The location is convenient but quiet. The house and furnishings are perfectly suited for its age and environs, and is kept sparklingly clean. The owner, management, and check-in process are all super easy to deal with. I can't think of enough nice things to say.

You will not be disappointed.

Our family and friends came to New Orleans to celebrate my son’s 30th birthday and we are so happy that we decided to stay at The Dryades House and The Dryades Suite. The place was exactly as described. The beds were extremely comfortable and it was nice having ceiling fans in all the rooms. There were enough towels for our stay. We rented both the house and the suite for our group of 7 adults. There was plenty of room. Although we only used the kitchen for the refrigerator and our morning coffee, it was nice having that option. The kitchen was stocked with coffee and creamer, which was nice. After being out all day it was nice coming home and having a drink on the front porch. There is a cute little coffee shop on the block that was so convenient and really made you feel like a local. We dined one night at Pascale’s down the street, and it did not disappoint. The street car on St. Charles is only a few blocks away. I always felt safe. We had trouble with our flight and needed to stay an extra day, so I contacted Val & Renee' and they immediately confirmed that we could stay an extra day and it was handled smoothly without any problems. Thank you for that. We all had a great time and fell in love with the city of New Orleans and I think staying like a local helped with that. Thank you again Val & Renee' for everything and for such a wonderful and memorable stay. If we return to New Orleans we will definitely stay here again.

Comfortable From the Minute We Walked In

  • 5 of 5

Pulling up in front of the house, I could feel my shoulders and neck relax. Actually walking through the front door put a big 'ol grin on my face...I've been smiling for the last three days. Staying here was better than an RX.

The house is not fancy, but just fine! Like staying with gramma (but bring your own cookies). You feel immediately comfortable and at home. Everything you need is here. My 87 year old mother staying with me had no problems or complaints!

The French Truck Cafe two doors down is excellent. We loved the convenience to the streetcar, but being far from the madding crowd. People walking their dogs, moms on their way to work and school kids. You truly feel like a local.
