Lush gardens and ample yard space ensure privacy for both guests and owner alike. Guest quarters include the back half of the main house and the studio loft. With a private entrance and dedicated guest patio by the pool you'll feel like you have the whole place to yourselves.
From the private garden path, enter the main house directly into the living room. This part of your rental has a full kitchen, living room with a flat screen TV and queen pullout sofa sleeper, 2 full bathrooms, and 2 bedrooms. Each bedroom is a queen, has a flat screen TV and french doors opening out to the back patio. One of these 2 bedrooms also has twin trundle beds that can convert into a king, and an en suite full bathroom with a stand alone shower and whirlpool tub. This part of the house sleeps 8.
The third bedroom is a queen in the studio which is a separate building that closely dovetails the back of the house. The bed is in a sleeping loft located up easily navigable stairs. The living room below has the other queen sleeper sofa, additional seating, a flat screen TV, walk-in closet, and a fold out table that seats 6. Through another well appointed kitchen you’ll find the third bathroom with a roomy shower, W/D, and a door to the guest patio.
The gardens and private patio provide the perfect space to entertain small parties or just to simply relax. There is seating for 4-6 at a dining table, and another conversational seating area accommodating 5-6. Seating and linens for larger parties available, please inquire.
Cooking in or out is easy with 2 well appointed kitchens and the gas grill. Accessories like food tents, pitchers, and melamine plates keep the party rolling. Seasonal herbs such as rosemary, mint, oregano, and basil are typically available in the old sink planter by the apartment door to add fresh flavors to both food and drink. When in season, Meyer lemons, Kumquats and Blood oranges abound and will be made available in fruit baskets by the herbs.
Off the back patio through a gated entrance is the shared pool with the owner. Recently added, the pool is a gorgeous 50 foot stretch of gentle mineral waters, the latest in pool chemical technologies. Pool hours will vary according to season and owner’s schedule, but usually will be available from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

About Miranda Lake
I have been living in New Orleans since '98 and can't imagine calling another place home. I love to travel, but the best part of that is knowing I am coming back here. I work as an artist, designer, and avid gardener. I consider my home and gardens one of my best works yet...enjoy!
Miranda Lake purchased this house in 1999
Why Miranda Lake chose Uptown
This location not only provides easy access to all points of interest in town, but also a calm oasis for when you just want to kick back and relax.
The lush gardens and ample yard space ensure privacy for both guests and owner alike. Separate garden entrance and dedicated guest patio in the very back of the property ensure you'll feel like you have the place to yourselves.
What makes this house unique
Owner and artist occupied, this property has been lovingly restored and updated to provide you with a stylish and comfortable place to spend your vacation.
A 1952 Routemaster Bus from London situated at the head of a 50 foot lap pool are just some of the newest additions to my home that create a unique experience and memorable stay.
