ENGINE 24 FRENCH QUARTER FIREHOUSE...A UNIQUE VACATION HOME!

New Orleans House Rental Photos and Description

House, 7 Bedrooms, 7 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

One of New Orleans' most unique vacation lodging properties: the Engine 24 French Quarter Firehouse... one of the few VRBO properties that is licensed by the City of New Orleans for short-term rentals! Stay in an authentic historic firehouse while enjoying the modern amenities of this renovated gem. Much of the furniture was updated in November 2012, too!

We are located in the heart of the Faubourg Marigny, considered by travel magazines to be one of America's hot neighborhoods. Next door is the French Quarter, one of the most historic and charming areas anywhere. And to the other side is the hip, funky Bywater, a neighborhood which features great local eateries and bars.

Our guest house is a restored fire station designed to function as a home away from home for tourists and locals alike to come and enjoy the vibrant culture that is New Orleans. Formerly, this historic building housed Engine 24 of the New Orleans Fire Department! Local architect William Sonner purchased and renovated the Firehouse in the 2000s and it's now one of the city's most popular vacation rentals!

The Firehouse has 7 bedrooms and 7 baths, made up of the downstairs MAIN FLOOR (sleeps 10) and the LUXURY PENTHOUSE (sleeps 4). The Main Floor is perfect for larger groups, family gatherings, etc. while the Penthouse is great for the VIPs of the group as well as a great place to congregate.

The Firehouse has two large private living areas and a newly renovated New Orleans courtyard with fountain, grill, outdoor seating and more. The Firehouse is not available for functions, weddings, birthdays or any other special event. It is strictly a lodging facility.

Please note: The Firehouse is a very popular building and usually books weeks or months in advance. We're often in phone or email contact with multiple groups for the same dates. The first party to initiate payment or provide proper credit will enter into a reservation with us! Check availability in real-time, any time at https://v2.reservationkey.com/837/Engine24/

The Firehouse is owned by a successful local architect (who oversaw the renovation!) and a guy who owns/operates an upscale home/lifestyle store in swanky Old Metairie, a N.O. suburb.

John purchased this house in 2000

The Firehouse building oozes with charm and history. Upgrades are ongoing to further improve the guest experience. The location is great, too, for those who want to be close to the craziness but in a REAL New Orleans residential neighborhood.

The Marigny is such an interesting neighborhood on its own, with great restaurants, clubs, coffee shops, etc. Fantasic 1800s architecture everywhere, too! And of course, the French Quarter is just a few blocks away.

One of those places you want to keep a secret.....

The 6 brothers and sisters, with spouses, have found that perfect mix in a place for togetherness and privacy. We 12 came for a double 50th birthday party to one of our favorite places, joined by another 14 family and friends that found B&B's nearby, and had another great time in the city and at Engine 24 Firehouse. The Polar Vortex also joined us which made for a bump or two that were handled with aplomb by the owners and booking agent. This is a city that worries about heat and humidity not sub-freezing temperatures, so finding space heaters for the couple of bedrooms that needed them, certainly took a much appreciated and diligent tri-county search.
New Orleans at 30 degrees still beats the -6 back home!
A perfect place for a large group, in a great neighborhood, and a short walk to the Quarter.
A big thanks to the owners and the booking agent for everything, including the birthday libations and more. We'll be back.

Perfect group vacation rental!

My husband and I rented the Firehouse over the weekend of our wedding. Our wedding venue was in the French Quarter and we wanted to stay close, but not TOO close. Before I moved to Los Angeles, I lived in New Orleans for years, and know the area well. From both a local and a tourist stand point, the Firehouse is the perfect location. It's just a 10 minute walk to Frenchman or the Quarter, no car necessary. And just a quick drive to anywhere else in the city you need to go. Our guests who had never been to New Orleans went crazy for it and have all vowed to rent it again in the future. Our guests ranged in age from 73 to 30, and they all loved the space equally. There was plenty of room for everyone and a perfect space upstairs for group dinners and socializing. Management was personable, helpful, and quick with email responses. Thank you John and Martha!! The Firehouse was a crucial part of making our wedding weekend a HUGE success!

Great option for a bachelor party in NOLA

This place was great and I'd highly recommend over many of the other options for a bachelor party. We spent a lot of time researching multiple locations for our 10 person bachelor party, but found this place to be the perfect combination of close location to bourbon / Frenchman (10-15 min walk) but far enough away from the action to be able to relax, plus coolness factor of it being a firehouse, plus many bedrooms and bathrooms. The place was clean, I'd definitely recommend getting the penthouse option as that is where the main kitchen area is. Each of us pretty much had our own private room and shower which is one of the reasons we picked this. The best part is around 9am each day we would all meet in the living room, as people started to wake up, and we always had one or two stragglers who were just getting back because they hadn't slept, and sharing stories about the previous nights adventure. You can't get that experience in hotel rooms. We gave the bachelor the master bedroom and master bath which was awesome, he was really happy. The firehouse has a nice outdoor patio area with a grill and water fountain which was great for hanging out. There is a market just one block away that carries most of your essentials, but if you need to grab alcohol I'd recommend stopping somewhere on the way in. Awesome stay, easy booking and communication with the owners. Best of all you're in a firehouse!! Can't go wrong. Would definitely recommend for a bachelor party!

What a great find. Cool, funky (in a good way), clean and full of character and charm. Our group of 14 guys had so much fun hanging out and celebrating our friend Brad's upcoming wedding. Low-key bachelor party with lots of quality time spent with friends. Two guys are deploying to Afghanistan next month so it was especially great to have time with them! The location not too far from Frenchmen Street is great and the French Quarter is close too. Be sure to check out Mimi's bar, one block away. Good music (but no DJ any longer) and interesting people-watching!

Engine 24 DID NOT DISAPPOINT!

My friends and I ventured to New Orleans for 4th of July Weekend. I recently returned from Afghanistan so it was optimal to have lodging that could accommodate a large group, one conveniently located to city sites, and a venue that could provide a unique vacation experience. Engine 24 DID NOT DISAPPOINT! This place was magnificent! It offered a private yet communal living space for my 13 guests. The property management staff was efficient, welcoming, and assessable for concerns throughout the weekend. Although many sites were in walking distance of Engine 24, we brought (or rental) bicycles as a way to maximize out touring adventure. My guests (some whom had never been to New Orleans) had an amazing time; it will surely go down as one of our most memorable events ever.
