Matilde's place was beautiful and clean, within close walking distance to plenty of cafes and parks.

Cute unit on a charming street, with many amazing restaurants nearby. The apartment is cozy and well-stocked, especially the kitchen! Matilde & Gustavo are great hosts, easy to communicate with. We loved staying in the peaceful and residential Bywater neighborhood, just a short walk from the action in the French Quarter.

Having been to New Orlean's several times to visit friends, I decided to get my own place. Matilde's apartment was exactly what I needed to enjoy the neighborhood, walk to the french quarter, and hangout with my friends without being a burden. The apartment is clean, decent and most everything you need.

Matilde & Guatavo were both communicative and kind hosts. The place is clean and has everything you need! Bywater itself has lots of places to walk to including a beautiful park! The only reason I can't give 5 stars and why I won't return to the location is due to noise. If you don't plan on sleeping in Nola then ignore my review! There is a clock tour 1 block away that goes off hourly and a frequent train blowing (handful of times a night). With ear plugs in I was still woken up many times throughout the night. Additionally the space shared a door with another unit and those tenants were very loud early in the morning (after my late night). So, not a rating on the hosts, but specifically location. It's a bummer not to get restful sleep on vacation!

Matilda is a well organized and considered host. We enjoyed staying in the apartment and we had the privacy we feered we might've not had staying in a private residence. We got to know the neighborhood with its little shops and restaurants. It was a half an hour walk from main tourist attractions which was perfect for us.

Matilde and Gustavo made sure our stay was as smooth as possible and we had a great time. The studio is close enough to everything while providing a relaxed and calm experience when you want it. The studio was clean, very relaxing to be in and had everything we wanted, with a very big plus for the washer and dryer! There are enough stores and restaurants close by to ensure you've always got options. All in all, great place, if we ever get back to New Orleans we'd definitely stay here!

Matilde User ProfileMatilde is a superhost.

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.
