Overview

Bayou St John House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths in Safe, Central, Beautiful Location!!

This truly stunning house is centrally located in an excellent neighborhood and is truly the perfect spot for Jazz Fest, getting to the French Quarter, the Museum of Art, Cafe Degas and many other great attractions in the city. The fairgrounds are literally in the backyard and the place is a quick 5 minute drive over to the French Quarter (keep in mind, it's 5 minutes driving down Esplanade Ave. but walking there, while very enjoyable, is more like 40 minutes or so). There are three bedrooms and 2 baths here, a large kitchen (no stove though), a kitchenette area, 2 living rooms, a reading room and a 'decorative' weight room. This listing is for the entire downstairs, about 2500 square feet with a private, separate entrance from the upstairs.

The owner, Bill, in is an interior designer with his own unique and whimsical style (as the pictures might hint at), and staying here in person is really a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Bill helped me decorate my house on a major budget (see VRBO #425650) so I'm returning the favor by helping him rent his downstairs out for some additional income to help maintain this historic Arts and Crafts style home in New Orleans.

Please be aware that there is a maximum of 6 people downstairs, but in the next few months we will also start renting out the upstairs as a separate rental (4 people max upstairs), so for those with sensitive ears, please be aware you may hear some footsteps from the guests above. (I will ask upstairs guests to be mindful, but just wanted you to be aware of this before booking). If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message. Thanks for your interest!

About Owner

Hi all! Thank you for looking at my profile. I've become something of an vacation rental veteran now with over a year's time hosting people and it's been a truly wonderful experience, one that's allowed me meet some great people and provide an excellent vacation for the many people who have stayed here. As an avid traveler myself I can share a lot of my travel experiences as well as my expertise on the great city of New Orleans. And I have lived here for over half my life, so I have plenty to share if interested. Some of my interests include reading, art, health, cooking and as mentioned, meeting new people.

Until very recently I have been career student and I've done a little of everything from interpreting and painting to landscaping and interior design. With my diverse background and all the rental activity I've seen, I decided to become a licensed realtor and have never looked back since!

This all being said, if you have any questions at all about me, about my place or about the great city I live in, please don't hesitate to contact me! I'll look forward to hearing from you.

Amazing Stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was extremely fantastic! It was a short cab ride from the hustle and bustle of downtown NOLA. The art and deco put into the home made it a very welcoming environment. The owner was wonderful and very friendly. We were so happy to celebrate a birthday there and ended up being surprised with a proposal in the little reading nook! Thank you for a beautiful place to stay that holds so many wonderful memories!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We came in for the Rock & Roll Marathon and this home is within 3 blocks of City Park making it a great location for after the race. There were 3 couples staying and we loved the charm and ammenties we were offered. Worked out great that the home had 2 a/c - heat units as one of the couples really likes it cold. We walked almost every night just down the street for dinner. This is a house for adults , if we had brought kids there is always the worry of breaking some of the wonderful art, etc. We took advantage of the Trolley just down the street (left the car at the house). Great place to stay and not be on top of all the partying going on downtown. If we come back we would stay here!

A true NOLA Experience...

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly exceptional property! It looks great, feel great & is very inviting to anyone staying here. The neighborhood is ideally situated for local dining, grocery shopping & coffee. It is also EASY to get almost anywhere in NOLA. Street is VERY quiet but narrow & parking requires some "imagination". If you like "expressive" interior design - this place is Nirvanna. Something to look @ everywhere. Comfortable but not a "Ritz Carlton" type of property. If you LOVE all that is NOLA - you'll love this place! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

FQF FIRST

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience with this property. It is exactly as described so no misconceptions. No kitchen equipment other than microwave which we knew and were ok with. Decor is entertaining and very much in keeping with NOLA style. Lots of conversation pieces!

The location was great for us. We preferred to get away from the madness when we wanted and was easy enough to get to once we learned about the street car scheduling. We used a combination of taxis and the street car depending on the mood. Love love love that you can just walk to restaurants and the great little grocery store around the corner.

The owner and agent, Mike were very accommodating, helpful and honest. Did not bother us at all that someone was on site with us.

I would recommend this property for adult travelers. Might be a challenge without a full kitchen. But that is individual too.

We will most definetly stay here again!

Amaizing house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much.The house was amaizing there was so much to look at, it made our stay more interesting. I feel like this house was a great representation of New Orleans. Mike was easy to reach for any questions. We would love to come back in the future. The neighborhood was quiet and close to everything. Great rental!

Great place to stay in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in an excellent location. Should consider having a rental car as getting a cab can be difficult and many places to see

This great location is one of its top draws - the French Quarter is just seven minutes away by car, and the Street Car, Museum of Art, Sculpture Garden and Botanical Gardens are all just three blocks away. There are also some great bars and cafes within easy walking distance, and on the way, you'll pass some of the stunningly beautiful hundred year-old mansions that this unique city has to offer.
