The cultural love child of genteel old Europe, the exotic Caribbean and the sultry South, New Orleans' original colonial neighborhood sets the scene for memorable romantic getaways. This is a city that revels in its passions, and for the visitor with an open heart the sensuality here can be infectious. It is also a city where people come to celebrate, whether by joining the massive public exuberance of Mardi Gras and other events or marking personal milestones in the lives of lovers, such as honeymoons and anniversaries. When a couple raises a glass in toast to each other, it can seem as though the entire town is following suit here.

Part of the appeal of New Orleans is its relaxed pace - a key ingredient to any romantic experience - and a leisurely carriage ride for two is a romantic way to get acquainted with the neighborhood at the beginning of a visit. Various types of mule-drawn carriages are available for hire at Jackson Square on Decatur Street. Carriage drivers generally narrate their tours of the Quarter with stories of various landmark properties, but just let him or her know at the start that you prefer to concentrate on your companion's company and you will have a serene cruise past the beautiful architecture and colorful street-scapes of the Vieux Carré. Snuggle under a blanket on the occasional chilly evening or bask in the tropical sunshine during another beautiful New Orleans day.

The French Quarter's many elegant restaurants make ideal venues for special meals with loved ones. But while the city is most famous for its Creole cuisine, it is the Italian restaurants of the French Quarter that offer some of the most romantic settings.

I am a professional who came to New Orleans post-Katrina to work on homes in Chalmette, (Saint Bernard Parish) that were damaged by water and the oil spill that occurred from Katrina. I fell in love with this city and the people here and decided to purchase a home and re-locate. I believe in the special magic of New Orleans and it's people and am dedicated to the rebuilding process.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2007

New Orleans is the most unique city in the United States with a European 'feel'. New Orleans architecture, history, music, art, and world renowned cuisine attract visitors from all over the world. I chose this property because of its proximity to the French Quarter and Frenchmen Street. Our home is located in the famous Bend of Bourbon where the 'Street Car Named Desire' once traveled. We are surrounded by mansions and homes on the National Historical Registry.

We are located in the historic Marigny in a quiet, residential neighborhood, a stones throw from the French Quarter and 2 blocks from Frenchmen Street, where traditional live jazz still reigns king.

Enjoy convenient, free on street parking directly in front of our home.

New Orleans is a walking city and our home is conveniently located to access famous restaurants, watering holes, live music, live theatre, shopping, museums and sightseeing without the use of a car.

Honeymoon

  • Stayed: Oct 2012
My wife and I decided to spend the first few days of our honeymoon exploring New Orleans. All the hotels that we saw were either out of our price range or too far away, so we jumped at the opportunity stay at Carol's place when we saw it on Homeaway.com.

The location and accomodations were literally exactly what we were looking for. It's in a great, safe neighborhood, and the route from the house to the heart of Bourbon street was quick, easy and direct (which is especially helpful at the end of a long night in the French Quarter...). Frenchman's street is just as convenient and even closer if you are looking to experience the more "cultural" (i.e. arts and music scene) side of New Orleans. The room isn't exactly palatial, but it's comfortable, clean, quiet, very private, and in all ways, as much as you will need. With as much as New Orleans has to offer, you shouldn't be spending that much time in the room anyway.

Since there is so much to see, do, and (most importantly) eat in this city, having a knowledgeable resource like Carol was invaluable. She knew exactly what to recommend based on what we wanted to do. I felt like I had done my homework before we got there and that we knew all the places we wanted to go, but Carol directed us to a few other places that I hadn't found (and steered us away from the tourist traps), and that definitely enhanced the trip.

This was our first trip to New Orleans, and we decided on the first night that it would not be our last. We will definitely be staying at Carol's Oasis again.

I could not have been happier with this property! I decided to spend a week on my own in New Orleans and this was the perfect place for me. Location is excellent - ridiculously close to Frenchmen Street (which was my favorite place at night!) and the French Quarter. Yet it was still quiet, secure and in a beautiful area. The apartment was very clean and comfortable with plenty of space for me. I also enjoyed taking time to relax in the very pretty courtyard. One of the best parts of my stay though, was meeting the property owner, Carol. She was so helpful and welcoming to me! Carol was nice enough to sit down with me and give me plenty of restaurant recommendations for every meal and every kind of cuisine. She even marked them all on a map for me! If you stay at one of her properties and want to eat at some unbelievably delicious places... for goodness sake listen to this lady! She knows her stuff! Carol also gave tips on attractions, places to visit and things to see. I would definitely stay here again! ...Hopefully sooner than later!

Great stay

I would actually rate this 4 1/2 stars...there doesn't seem to be the ability to do a 1/2 star.
My husband & I had a wonderful stay at Lofty Oasis in January. The room is as described. It is a small bedroom, a little smaller than I expected but more than adequate for the amount of time you actually spend in the room. We found it to be a great location...quiet neighborhood but close to the French Quarter. It was very convenient to be able to park our car and not worry about moving it or using it. The only time we used the car was when we went to the Garden District. Otherwise we walked everywhere.
Carol was an amzing source of information. We took her advice on several restaurants, etc and were very pleased.

It is the perfect spot!

I was referred here by a B&B that had no room for me on my selected dates. I am so glad they were full - this was the perfect place for me! It is VERY clean and cozy. It is also very private. I felt very safe and secure as there is a locked gate at the street. The location is wonderful! It is very close to the French Quarter yet far enough away that all the busyness of Bourbon and Frenchman Streets is not a distraction.

The listing accurately reflects the property and amenities. The owner was friendly and very helpful. She recommended Who Dat for breakfast and I was very glad she did - I ate there every day! I would definitely recommend staying here. In fact, I am planning another visit in March and will be booking my stay here again!

My husband and I stayed at this place during our visit, and were very pleased. The location was just perfect, glad we had parking as we visited friends in Metairie while we were there (otherwise, you really don't need a car for much). The room isn't huge, but fit our needs and was very clean. Carol was extremely helpful with recommendations for places to eat, and a bar just up the street was a good place to start.
