When we arrived we were greeted by Peter, who directed us to our parking spot. We drove through a little gate and were able to park directly in front of the cottage, which stands behind the house. The location of 5Cs was close enough to the French Quarter that we walked everywhere. When we had too much food and drink for dinner we simply took a $7 cab ride back. Although the location is just outside the quarter, on the other side of I-10 overpass, we felt quite safe and there were many other touristy-looking pedestrians walking throughout the day (But we did avoid taking walks late at night in the neighborhood). The 5Cs itself feels very safe and snug, and the cottage was perfect for us and our dogs. It consists of one main room with the bed; a little kitcheny nook with fridge, sink, and microwave; a large-ish bathroom with a nice walk-in shower (no tub). Breakfast was in the big house and was protein-rich (also fresh fruit); and Peter was very happy to take any special requests. I like this place a lot, although I might stay in the French Quarter next time if the dogs aren't with us simply because we spend almost all our time there. But this place is especially excellent if you have a pet or will be going to different parts of the city. Peter and his partner are very nice, but not overly-chatty, which I really appreciated. I highly recommend this B&B.
