New Orleans House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Maison Violette is one of the best kept secrets in New Orleans, the historical French Quarter home offers a unique New Orleans experience with gracious Southern hospitality.

Maison Violette is located on the historic Esplanade Avenue. Located within a short walking distance of both Frenchman St and the French Market. Esplanade Avenue runs from the Mississippi River front to the intersection with Carrollton Avenue just past Bayou St. John, and the entrance to City Park. Many 19th century mansions still line the street; it functioned as a 'millionaire's row' for the Louisiana Creole section of the city.

The home offers guests a step into the past, yet new and comfortable accommodations with its recent masterful renovation which offers a luxurious, clean, modern comfortable feel. Amenities include a fully furnished kitchen, slate counter tops, stainless appliances in addition to all that one could wish for to cook a gourmet meal, a Japanese soaking tub in the spa like serene bathroom setting, a king size bed dressed in all of the romantic elements the city has to offer and a front porch with a swing to sit back, relax and watch the spirit of a city that is truly alive!

The location of the Maison Violette sits in the heart of New Orleans. No need for a car while staying at the Maison Violette, everything is within walking distance. You want to walk the streets of New Orleans and take in all of history and vibrance the city has to offer as you explore all of the many neighborhoods.

New Orleans offers endless entertainment and attractions through out the year. Stroll the streets and experience all the best attractions, the Riverfront, the French Quarter, Jackson Square, the Fauborg Marigny, the live music venues, famous restaurants (you have to experience a Friday lunch at Galatoire's), the shopping, the museums, the casino, the street car and of course the nightlife, its all here in walking distance!

Loved our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We snagged this gem while the rate was on a special so I was a bit skeptical going into it, must admit. As most husbands tell their wives, quit worrying so much. And he was right (don't tell him I uttered those words) THIS PLACE WAS GREAT!! We are familiar with the area as we frequent New Orleans a couple times of year and always stay at the overpriced hotels. We decided to try something new and we are so glad we did.

Location -- Quiet, cool neighborhood near Frenchman Street. Right on the outskirts of French Quarter, we had no problem walking all the way to Canal for breakfast one morning at Palace Cafe. After hefty étouffées and jambalayas each night we don't mind a long stroll while stopping in shops or viewing artwork. If you aren't really mobile or the hover round is in the shop, taxis are everywhere. Make use of the cabs or even the street car.

Parking -- We found street parking for free a little ways away. Definitely look for it because it exists! But make sure you read the signs because you could easily get towed. After two nights of our stay a sweet neighbor, whom we became friends with while sitting on our porch, let us use her spot right in front of the place next to the rental. She was so cool. Sit on the porch swing and pet the resident kitty, you'll see some cool stuff and meet some friendly passerbys.

Place -- Older duplex with LOADS of charm. The details of the home are beautiful. It was clean and well maintained. The kitchen was stocked but I'll admit we frequented local restaurants as well as the touristy ones, so we didn't cook a thing. Don't be alarmed if you enter and the AC isn't cranking, it cools that place down like an ice box once it gets going. Plus, rest assured the owner promptly answered my call when I thought the AC wasn't working. TV worked fine although it was only the hubby watching it while I soaked in the tub. Don't be scared of the tub only bathroom situation either. My husband is 6'1" and while it was a tight squeeze he didn't complain. Be careful stepping down from the tub, he lost his footing one time. I laughed so hard. Bed was comfy, nothing to write home about but I slept like a baby. PS - Funny story, the cat was really active one night and has a peculiar meow. She was meowing outside and I thought someone was screaming outside,maybe being murdered...woke up the husband with a whisper thinking we were next. He thought I was the biggest idiot. I'm a dog person...clearly.

Highly recommend!!

Very New Orleans!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a short trip to New Orleans before I went back to school. It was very spacious, and it included all of the amenities needed for a very enjoyable trip. I fell in love with the large soaking bathtub. It was just what I needed after walking miles on those sometimes bumpy, irregular, and not exactly clean New Orleans streets. On the first night my boyfriend went down to the grocery store, which was just a few blocks away from the house, while I soaked in the tub! It was love at first use! We also enjoyed the swing on the front porch. It was very entertaining to watch the people and cars pass by. Overall, it was a very relaxing trip, and it was just what I needed before I have to go back to the stresses of school.

Anniversary fun

We had a wonderful time! Great location, walking distance to all the fun places. The internet didn't feel like working a lot of the time. Other than that we had a terrific time. I will definitely be staying there again.

Maison Violette, a lovely and serene oasis in NOLA

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful property, well maintained and furnished. The bed was very comfortable and the house was cool and quiet in contrast to the city outside. We really enjoyed the location, just a few blocks from the jazz clubs on Frenchman and on the edge of the French Quarter. We loved sitting on the porch watching the people go by with the neighborhood cat Callie. (I hope she finds a real home again soon!) The bathtub was a bit daunting to get in and out of but it was nice and deep to soak in after a long day walking around NOLA. Nice fluffy towels and washcloths as well. The kitchen was well appointed, tho it could use a teapot!
So many great restaurants within walking distance too! Make sure to check out Meals from the Heart in the French Market and Cafe Envie for coffee!

Beautiful Home and Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved the house! The location is unbelievable and walking distance to almost everywhere you would want to go. We were less than 5 minutes from Bourbon St and a few blocks from the French Market. The house was extremely clean, renovated and had plenty of towels and wash cloths. Only down side is the parking!!! We were towed the last night we were there. Just for future notice...make sure you park at LEAST 20 feet from a crosswalk and 3 feet from a driveway. Who would have ever known??? The towing is definitely a money making thing down there! I would highly, highly recommend this rental!!!!!
