We loved our stay! The place has a special character, and our room was the right size and very clean. The owner is a nice, helpful guy who will help you figure out the city. Absolutely no complaints.

This B&B is located in a fabulous neighborhood. The owners are sweet and accommodating, without being intrusive or rigid. It's a great spot for couples, though you can easily share a bed with a friend, since they're big enough to allow for that. Ray was warm and offered useful tips on how to navigate the area and where to eat. This is the second time that I've stayed there, and I plan to return again. It has been a pleasure both times.
Thanks Anna. It was great seeing you again here. I'm glad you two had a great visit. :-) Hope to see you again. Thanks, Ray

Ray & Kim were great hosts. Ray made sure to meet us curb side when our taxi arrived. We were given restaurant and entertainment recommendations. As well, answered any questions about the city that we had. The rooms were clean and we were asked frequently if we were in need of extra items in our room. Overall, great value and would definitely stay there again! Thanks again! Jeff & Colinda
Thanks, Jeff & Colinda. We really enjoyed your 10-day visit. Nice meeting you two, and enjoyed hearing about your lives in Canada-- such great morning conversations over coffee, and discussing all the restaurants you tried out. You really did New Orleans proud-- with such a great Mardi Gras and such nice, sunny, warm weather. I hope Jeff gets to see Deadpool soon-- and hope all the potatoes held up while Jeff was gone. I'll bet the kids really missed you. Hope to see you again. :-) Ray and Kim

Ray and Kim are wonderful, knowledgeable hosts. The location of this B&B could not be more ideal: close to Frenchmen Street and convenient to adjacent neighborhoods, the Bywater and the French Quarter. We parked our car and didn't move it until we left. We had a wonderful stay and definitely will be back!
So glad you enjoyed your stay. :-)

Ray and Kim run a beautiful little place in the Marigny. We had an absolutely wonderful time. It was walking distance from so many fantastic places, we didn't even need to rent a car. We enjoyed the French Quarter and the Faubourg Marigny all weekend. The bed was huge and very soft, it was wonderful for sleeping and napping. The local laws prevent them from providing anything hot for breakfast, but the continental breakfast was great if we didn't feel like going out anywhere. La Dauphine will be our go-to place for staying in New Orleans from now on.
Thanks. So glad you enjoyed your stay :-)

La Dauphine is our favorite place to stay when we visit New Orleans. Ray and Kim are wonderful hosts, and the house is divine. The neighborhood is full of fabulous restaurants and bars, and all of the music and fun of Frenchman Street is a couple blocks away. It's perfectly situated to enjoy the city away from the crowds but close enough to the quarter to take part in all the revelry. Morning coffee with Ray is the best way to start the day, and he always makes great suggestions for places to eat and visit. We instantly feel relaxed and at home when we walk through the doors of La Dauphine, and would recommend it to anyone who really wants to get to know the city and the warm and friendly people who live there.
What a lovely, warm review. Thank you so much. The feeling is mutual. It's so nice to host people that appreciate what you have to offer. what a lovely, warm review. Thank you so much.

Ray was a warm & welcoming host. Great conversationalist. Took a few days to cross paths with Kim, but he was equally nice. Great location away from Le Vieux Carre, but a close walk to Frenchman Street. Places to eat, bunches of music clubs. Reasonable access to freeways, if you're going east or to the far side of the city. The neighborhood felt safe. Parking could be a challenge, but we found spots on the same block. A great place to stay in New Orleans!

We can't wait to return next year for Mardi Gras. What a beautiful place. You were great hosts and it was so nice to exhange stories with you. Lots of love from Montreal, Terry and Justin.

This was my second stay with Ray. We had a great time and I so love the neighborhood around La Dauphine. Ray was wonderful again I feel like I am staying with an old friend. Thanks again.
