Matilde & Gustavo's apartment is just perfect for 2 guests! It is exactly as described - clean, comfortable bed, character with old wood floors and exposed brick, and a lovely back patio. We felt very safe in the neighborhood and encountered many people walking throughout the day. We walked to the French Quarter, which is about 1 mile during the day, but opted for Uber/Lyft at night ($8-12 typically). Gustavo was so friendly - he held our luggage for us in his studio (in front of the house) and delivered it to our room when it was ready. He came by later to check on us, gave us a bottle of wine, and offered restaurant suggestions. There are many personal touches in this home, including soaps, shampoo, hairdryers, filtered water, flip flops, ponchos, and umbrellas. I would highly recommend Matilde & Gustavo's home to anyone traveling to New Orleans - they were fabulous hosts!

Really enjoyed this calm space and quiet local area and the host’s a/c was great and essential in the NOLA humidity.

Matilde's place is a great space. It is right around the corner from a yoga studio where I attended a workshop. The space is in a house, the front being used by her husband as an art studio. He was nice enough to give me a quick tour of his work. And he gave me his card in case I needed anything. The rental was in the back of the house, nicely furnished, with a rear yard. There are several great restaurants just a few minutes away.

The apartment was lovely and in my favorite neighborhood of New Orleans, the Bywater. Quiet neighborhood and walkable to great restaurants. I recommend Elizabeth's and Satsuma for breakfast, and The Country Club for poolside drinks. Easy Uber or Lyft ride to the French Quarter, or even a 25-30 minute walk, which we did at day and night safely and enjoyably. Comfortable bed and nice kitchen and bathroom, the washer/dryer machine was also super helpful. There are other apartments around this place so bring earplugs if you're not used to that, also an eye mask if you want to sleep in, because there's tons of great natural light. Matilde was a great host and was very accommodating to our needs, she made our arrival and check out seamless.

Location is great. Bywater is wonderful...and awesomely spooky but Safe at night. I loved walking to the French Quarters through the neighborhoods but I did use Ubers which add up a bit. I would guess it is about a 900 sq foot portion of the house with amazing amenities and new with style. I met Gustavo the husband of Mathilde and he was very welcoming and assisting.

Greetings! We are Matilde and Gustavo, both visual artists. We live in New Orleans, came for an exhibit of Gustavo and barely few hours later fell irrevocably in love with the city.
Gustavo is a well-known artist and regularly shows abroad and other cities of the United States. That is one of the reasons we travel often.
We are foodies, love to enjoy the local experiences and to stroll while discovering the city's social and architectural treasures.
We offer our guest house for short term rentals so we understand what means to be a wonderful guest and recognize the efforts of being a good host.
