Best of both world!
The Owner purchased this apartment in 1995
This building was never intended to be a vacation rental. All other units are occupied full time and are very unique. This unit is my home away from home, and is rented when I cannot be there. What makes this property so special is none of the apartments have been subdivided. The smallest is 1800 sq. ft. and the largest is 3600 sq. ft. Units have been showcased in New Orleans magazine.
Frenchmen Street is so unique, and is specifically for a special tenant. You must love jazz,and love the experience. Honestly, if you want peace and quiet, this is not the place for you. This apartment is in the heart of the music district. I personally have 2 children and stay there often, but it is geared for the true music lovers.
Just wanted to thank you again-everyone had a great time. It was wonderful to be able to stay together and not be crowded
No need for a car with this property! Walking distance to everything. This apartment has a washer and dryer too along with laundry soap, coffee pot and seasonings to cook with in the kitchen. We loved this property but there is a jazz club below and will play music until 3 am some nights. Bring earplugs! Otherwise the apartment is beautiful and perfect for anyone.The balcony view over frechman street is great. We even had a marching band come by! Celebrated my 40th birthday here and had a blast. We even found 40th birthday plates and hats left behind by someone else. A trip we will never forget!
Sistapalooza in New Orleans: perfect setting where the locals hang out. the apt. beautifully decorated and great jazz from the Maison jazz club floated in from the balcony doors. within walking distance of French market and nice restaurants. secure parking across the street one block up 20$ per day. An authentic NOLA feel.
So we just returned from 5 days in New Orleans to celebrate my boyfriends college graduation - we had a good group, 7 of us traveling together. It was my third time to New Orleans, most of our group were visiting for the first time. We had an absolute wonderful time and this apartment made the trip even better! It was perfect for a small group of friends, right on Frenchmen St which is great location within the French Quarter. The owner is very easy to work with and answers all questions and the booking process is very simple. The pictures and descriptions are perfectly accurate. Location is perfect. Balcony is ideal for late night people watching and constant live music. I will keep returning to NOLA and will never stay in a hotel again. I think we might be thinking of making this trip a regular thing and will look forward to booking this apartment again and again. Ditch the hotel, book this place. You'll love it! Enjoy!
I absolutely loved staying at this beautiful historic home. The high ceilings, wonderful character and great scene-watching patio/balcony made this perfect for the 50th birthday celebration of 2 of my best friends. Walking distance to the riverside and Bourbon Street. Memories to last a lifetime!
We had the pleasure of renting this property as our home base for the 2nd week of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and could not have been more pleased with our choice. This property will put you in the middle of all the action on Frenchmen Street, and you'll be able to enjoy much of it without leaving the comfort of your balcony. As noted by others, the action outside goes into the wee hours of the morning, so this is not a rental for anyone looking for a quiet getaway.
The unit itself is extremely spacious, has loads of character, all the amenities you need in a home away from home, and is literally steps away from bars, music clubs, dining, and shopping.
The owners were great to work with, and I'd not hesitate to reccomend this rental to anyone.
We stayed in this apartment for a week during FQ Festival and a few days after fest with 6 adults and our 2-year old. The location was perfect with easy access to the French Quarter, French Market, street car and most of all, the amazing Frenchmen Street music clubs. Every night we sat on the AMAZING balcony and enjoyed all the music coming from Maison, located right below us. Brass bands played on a corner just north of us and we even enjoyed a music jam on the balcony across the street from us. The home was very clean and comfortable, with plenty of space for all of us. We cannot say enough about how perfect this location is. As mentioned in the description, it is NOT a quiet location, but that was our favorite part... we could put our toddler to bed and still enjoy some nightlife from the comforts of the balcony. We will be back in the future!
