I searched for hours and hours before selecting La Belle Esplanade. Upon arrival, I was relieved to find beautifully appointed, spacious and well located suites with plenty of parking. Matthew and Melanie are the perfect hosts, whose enthusiasm for their newly adopted city is infectious. Each morning, I looked forward to the day's local treats which were carefully curated for breakfast as well as to the insider tips and perspectives generously offered by my hosts. I'm already planning my next visit to NOLA and La Belle Esplanade. Thanks again Matthew and Melanie for helping to make my birthday unforgettable.

We had a great 3-day stay at "La Belle Esplanade", drawing from Melanie's and Matthew's amazing hospitality! The rooms are wonderfully furbished, spacious, and have all the conveniences you can ask for. The small fridge was filled with free complementaries on your arrival. An absolute highlight is the breakfast buffet that is filled with a variety of local delicacies. We also used the free bikes to discover the city. La Belle Esplanade is located in beautiful Tremé with a number of good restaurants, as well as the New Orleans Museum of Art just down the road. It is also just a short walk to the French Quarter and Frenchmen Street. We highly recommend this BnB.

The hosts Matthew and Melanie have worked really hard to make a unique & spic environment. We lived this place. Also perfectly located to explore NOLA. Not so close to the French Quarter that you're sowed up by tourists, but still at the centre of the action.

Two transplants to NOLA who are happy to share their experiences in a city like no other.
We visit farmers markets every week to get local jellies, jams and pickles from neighboring St. Bernard Parish. We visit local bakeries every day to get a fresh loaf of po' boy bread and pastries. We contract with local restaurants to serve their crawfish pies, alligator balls, muffalettas, empanadas, and red beans. A hearty NOLA breakfast every day. Take the leftover bread to feed the ducks in City Park.
