About Carrie

I have 12 properties that are vacation rentals- several here, in Austin and Wimberley TX. I am a former Realtor- I love this business. I remodel older homes for a living--restoring homes is very important to me; there are plenty here in New Orleans.

Carrie purchased this house in 2008

Great property, great owner

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 5 people, two couples and a single person and had plenty of space in this beautiful apartment. The bathroom and the main bedroom are part of the whole space (the walls don't go all the way to the ceiling in the bedroom) so there isn't as much separation for that couple from anyone sleeping in the living room if you need it. But it didn't bother us and the apartment is gorgeous and in an incredible area. The balcony is wonderful. Carrie was responsive to any and all of our needs. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a blast in New Orleans!!!! The house was amazing and had such a breathtaking view of the sun coming up. I will say do not judge a book by its cover while exploring the area, my family and I learned that first hand. I will definitely stay here again!!!!

Bachelor Party

  • 5 of 5

6 of us went down there for my buddies bachelor party. We all slept just fine with room to spare. The whole place has a really cool vibe to it. We were also surprised on how close it was to the French Quarters. If I am ever in New Orleans again, we will definently be staying there again.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place! If your unfamiliar with New Orleans then the area seems "shady" at first glance, however, it doesn't take long to realize it is simply a VERY old residential area in NOLA. The Penthouse was a beautifully decorated place for my wife and I as well as our two friends. Less than a mile walk to the east end of Bourbon St and close to quite a few cozy little local spots. We HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone looking to have a genuine NOLA experience.

Awesome trip

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to celebrate a milestone birthday - not to mention Southern Decadence. The penthouse was comfortable, artsy and a great space to have fun. I would highly recommend this place!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

I had a group of people that stayed here and at the Gypsy House. They are an upstairs and downstairs unit. Both are great places to stay, but If I had to choose a favorite, I would say the Penthouse, due to the Outdoor Balcony. It was a great experience and I'd be more than happy to stay in both places again.

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
