I have 12 properties that are vacation rental- the others are in Austin and Wimberley TX. I am a licensed Realtor, and love this business. I remodel older homes for a living--restoring beautiful old homes is very important to me, and there are plenty here in New Orleans.

Carrie purchased this house in 2008

LOCATION LOCATION, and its simply gorgeous.....As soon as I walked in, I said, oh yeah, I'm getting this property!!!

GREAT PLACE AND FANTASTIC RECOMMENDATIONS NEARBY

I had a fantastic time turning 50 in New Orleans. Clichéd? Yeah slightly, but so what. The photos don’t do the place justice, it really is incredible. Amazing kitchen; even had everything for morning coffee kicking around with a great balcony to drink it on. Free parking and tons of it in a gorgeous, friendly, safe and peaceful neighborhood. Mardi Gras Zone so handy around the corner for all kinds of food supplies, open 24 hours and super friendly. Schiro’s was only a step away for take home beer and wine. We went almost entirely with Carrie’s recommendations and we are so glad we did. All were welcoming, free-pouring and delicious.
Elizabeth’s…I’ve been here before years ago and it was even better than I remembered. Stellar Bloody Marys and the praline bacon has gotta be tried.
Cake Café and Bakery…crazy way of service, you wait in line to order and then arrive at your table around the same time the food is ready, totally worth it once you figured out how it worked. You can bring in a Bloody Mary from nearby Friendly’s bar if you crave or need one.
Bacchanal Fine Wine and Spirits…Had a truly enchanted evening here. So glad for this recommendation since it didn’t really appear anywhere else. You walk into the most fantastic wine store with really helpful staff, buy a couple of great bottles, pick some cheese, grab some glasses and head out to a courtyard totally decked out in fairy lights, a live band and amazing tapas from the snack bar. Try the baby octopus. So nice to be somewhere they were in no hurry to get you to leave. We took a couple of bottles back with us too.
R Bar. We went to a ton of bars along Frenchman on Friday night, had a great time, then turned a corner and found R Bar. We all loved this place, a dream neighborhood bar. I met a really great dog on the barstool next to me and left hugging strangers.
Satsuma-We needed something a bit healthier for the long trip home-this was really lovely. Pineapple ginger lemonade was the ultimate hangover remedy. Of course now I imagine how everything could taste with a shot of booze…I must learn to recreate this to try it with tequila.
We can’t wait to come back and stay here again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS.

Fantastic rental

Just got back to Seattle after staying in the upper unit of this property over the weekend with a group of friends. Everyone commented that they couldn't have been happier with the rental. Great house in a really interesting part of the city. Walking through the Marginy gives you the quintessential feel of New Orleans. Additionally, we were able to walk easily to the French Quarter. Would definitely consider staying here again. Thanks very much, Carrie.

This is my second stay at this property; both times I felt 100% at home! I visit the city every 2-3 months--usually on a solo or +1 status. However, each time we have stayed in this house it has comfortably slept 3 couples. The property is clean, the neighborhood is lovely, and working with Carrie is as easy as pie! Yes, you need to drive to the quarter and surrounding attractions, but it's well worth it! Believe me, you wont regret booking this house!

Awesome Place to Stay!

I stayed here with seven total people, and we had plenty of room. There's a small grocery store two blocks away, and the walk to the French Quarter and Bourbon Street was very doable. The living area is very comfortable - I even had some friends who live in New Orleans say this would be a cool place to live!

Faubourg Marigny is a wonderful eclectic historical neighborhood located only 10 blks from the French Quarter. This area is set up to be able to walk or ride a bike to many restaurants, grocery, and bars. It has a lovely European feel to it. Yoga studio is 2 blks away, fun vintage shops a few blks away......Frenchman St. is my favorite area to listen to live music- 8 blks away.

Other Activities: French Quarter shopping, cemetery tour, swamp tour, plantation tour
