Rusell did a great job to maintain this wonderful house. He provided great breakfast even though I got up late. The only concern to this house is there is no satisfactory wifi coverage. In modern life, it could be quite inconvenient if there is no high-speed wi-fi in a hotel. I'm sure Rusell will improve it in near future.

The Proprietor Mr Russell was everything everyone states he is. We unfortunately didn’t arrive until 2a and he was beyond accommodating even at that time of the morning he made it a point to give us a tour, provide us with all codes and keys needed along with showing us the remaining of amenities that were all communal and included. Was kind enough to even ask if we would be up for breakusinhe can prepare extra if we were. (Yes, the biscuits at everything that they rave about!!) the home was a beautiful cultural landmark, nestled in one of the most convenient locations where we didn’t even need a car. All trolleys and buses are caddy corner to the B&B. The provide an open bar with unlimited beverages, cocktails and coffee which couldn’t be beat. We would definitely recommend and will certainly find ourselves back there again! Thank you Russell and Sudeeptha—New York Boxing Lovers :)

Great find! Love the location. Very comfortable.
We really enjoyed our stay with Russell at the Oak View B & B. We had the Oak Room, right at the front of the house, which is a large, comfortable two-room suite. The bathroom is large, the bed comfy and the location is awesome. We loved being right at the Canal streetcar line, and walked around City Park simply because it's gorgeous and literally right across the street. Because of our schedule, we only enjoyed one breakfast, but beverages, including wine, an assortment of alcohol choices, coffee and sodas are available 24/7. What's not to love?! Also, no outrageous parking fees like the hotels have. There's a driveway, and it's included. This saves -- on average -- $40 per day. Calculate that in when you're looking for a place to stay! And . . . Russell is a true character with a big personality. Get him talking about Australia and tennis. Perfect host with a charming personality! We'll go back. Easy to get to the WWII Museum, to the Canal Street shopping arcade and all the nightlife in the Quarter.

We have been spoiled ROYALLY!
My husband and I stayed at Oakview for 4 nights as a late anniversary get away. OMG it was AMAZING! We somehow lucked out and had the whole place to ourselves. Mr. Russell and his wife are the best hosts ever. The added touch of open bar 24/7 was unexpected and welcomed. The fact that we were able to use the streetcar and not rent a vehicle was another added bonus. The stop wasn't even a block away from the b&b. City Park is right across the street and filled with so many amazing things; it also offered excellent exercise. There were tons of restaurants in walking distance and by way of the streetcar so food was never an issue. Oakview is GORGEOUS and so beautifully decorated. It ALWAYS felt like home. My husband is a meat eater, I'm not however breakfast every morning was awesome. They made sure there were plant based options for me and I truly appreciated that (the biscuits are to die for... seriously the best biscuits EVER). We're unable to stay at Oakview when we go back in July which truly sucks because we're now spoiled. It was our 1st time in New Orleans and Oakview set the bar entirely TOO HIGH. We will take another trip just to stay at Oakview again though. Maybe next year's anniversary!
