The hostess was so warm and welcoming. The breakfast home cooked and delicious. Easy walk to the French Quarter. Would happily return.

From the first time you walk through the gate, you feel welcomed and at-home. The housekeeper and inn-keeper were both very friendly and did their best to be sure you had everything you needed to be most comfortable. The house and it's rooms were very charming and the location was wonderful. The neighborhood was quiet and off the regular path, but it was still in a convenient location to main attractions. The morning breakfast had a variety of breads, fruits, cereals to chose from along with a hot dish each morning. I would certainly stay here again.

We had a wonderful experience staying with Nancy! It is such a beautiful house! The location was perfect, it gave you a sense of the local atmosphere but was in walking distance of French Quarter. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our weekend in New Orleans.

My best friend and I stayed at Auld Sweet Olive for our first New Orleans trip and it was beyond amazing. Nancy was so sweet and gave us so many recommendations of places to go. Will definitely 100% be back there.
