Great experience all around. Peter is an excellent host and very welcoming of both us and our two small dogs. We stayed in the cottage and had a wonderful time exploring New Orleans, the French Quarter being only a mile away. I would recommend this B&B.

B & B's all have the same thing... rooms and breakfast. But at the Five Continents, you are treated like royalty. We stayed in the North American Cottage and enjoyed sitting on the front porch as well as having our own private home. The walk down Esplanade to Frenchmen St was about 12 minutes... much needed for the great food we ate. Speaking of great food- the meals served here is five STAR! The owners had a genuine feel when it came to service. AND that is the reason we will be going here again. Thanks

Having read numerous reviews, we were delighted with the warm welcome, and GREAT breakfast to start our busy days in N.O . Peter has a very nice location close to Downtown and the French Quarter, ideal for those that want to walk , and party. We highly recommend 5 Continents, it exceeded our expectations.

The host, Peter, was gracious, helpful, and accessible. I've stayed here before and have always been very satisfied. The location makes visiting New Orleans more manageable.

My husband and I stayed at Five Continents for several nights while visiting New Orleans for Jazz Fest. It was walking distance to the fair grounds. We stayed in the cottage. The room was very spacious, more like a mini apartment. Peter was wonderfully hospitable and personable and his homemade breakfasts were delicious. A million times better than staying in a hotel.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay in the North American Cottage. It was clean, beautifully decorated, and very peaceful. We enjoyed the proximity to the French Quarter and found it easy to get around the city. The breakfast each morning is absolutely amazing and even though we did not get the chance to meet the owners (they were on vacation), we were very well treated by both David and Becky. We will recommend Five Continents B&B to all of our friends and will definitely be back!

Our stay here was one of the most memorable. The facilities were exceptionally well cared for. The staff, including Akko their dog were the most friendly and conscientious we have had on any of our trips. We would return here on any occasion for a New Orleans visit. This a high value B & B.

Immediately upon arriving Peter made my husband and I feel welcomed! The inn was beautiful our two room suite was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were amazing and prepared as requested. Peter and Walter made us feel right at home and we all had great conversations during our breakfasts with other guests. The only problem was that we had only 3 days to enjoy the accomodations and the beautiful city of New Orleans. We will be back!! Thank you for everything!
