This is the former home of actors Delta Burke (Designing Women) and Gerald McRaney (Simon and Simon, Major Dad), and it is decorated in a tasteful and festive Tuscan style. Near Ursuline St., you can sit on the front stoop for 5:00 cocktails and watch the world go by or walk anywhere in the French Quarter. The main floor parlor/living room features a bar with ice machine, large windows facing Royal Street, leather sofas, and a piano. Relax in a private garden with outdoor seating and huge covered porch featuring shade awnings to protect you from the midday sun. In the center of the courtyard garden is an ornate fountain stocked with lovely koi. Step inside from the back porch to a large stylish kitchen with copper pots hanging from 14-foot ceilings and a huge island with stools for meal prep and dining.

Based on the photos we knew the house would be charming but it far exceeded our expectations. We had a total of 14 people between the 2 floors and the carriage house and there was plenty of space for all of us to spend time together and yet quiet enough for someone to read a book or take a nap in another room. The location was perfect for walking anywhere in the French Quarter and we appreciated the nearby grocery store and deli. It was a wonderful home base for our vacation and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
We have been coming to this lovely Royal street home for four years now and we are never disappointed! The home is beautiful and you are within walking distance to shopping and wonderful restaurants. My husband and three young children (toddlers) and our Nanny enjoyed many a wonderful meal in the home's gourmet kitchen. We love the owners as they treat us like family...their home has become our home, as least over Thanksgiving! We already booked for 2015 and we are looking forward to returning, making more memories with our children. We love New Orleans and one of the reasons is because we stay at this French Quarter jewel!
Arrived in a white limo for a four day celebration of my 70th birthday. My friends and I were looking forward to a great time. If you are looking for a perfect place in the French Quarter you've got to try this place. I've never had a manager (Nikki) come over and treat all of us like family. She gave us vital information about the area and the best places to go and restaurants in which to eat. Talking with the owner of the home was a wonderful experience. You could tell that she loves the home and wants everyone of her tenants to love it also. There are photographs all around the house of her family and friends which give it a homey feeling. We sat on the back porch and had morning coffee even though it was very cold. There are heaters out there that make it bearable. Large screen TVs for enjoying movies or sporting events. We watched the Patriots win a vital game. Very convenient location. We just stepped out of the front door and walked everywhere. No need for a car. There were 7 of us and plenty of room. We booked the first and second floor. The second floor has large windows that go all the way to the floor which you can pull up and walk out onto the balcony. The home is exquisitely decorated and you can tell that it was done with loving care. I plan on making another reservation soon. Enjoy!
I can't put into words how perfect this beautiful home was and what it meant to
my mother. 8 of us stayed there for my mothers 70th birthday. She has always loved New Orleans and this home is quintessential New Orleans. The whole setup was perfect. My mother said she would make sure she
made it to 71 years old if we made this a tradition at the same house. Sat in the courtyard looking at the plants and couldn't help but water them. They are beautiful. Perfect location, perfect setting, perfect decor and perfect owners and manager.
My girlfriends and I rented the downstairs and the carriage house for a long weekend. The house was gorgeous. It was even prettier than the pictures and all seven of us had plenty of room. It was so fun to see the horse drawn carriages go by out the window. It was close enough to the action that we could walk everywhere we wanted to go but still fairly quiet. The courtyard was wonderful. We found everyone we dealt with to be helpful and accommodating.
This beautiful gem on Royal was perfect for our annual trip with friends. 8 of us met in New Orleans for a long weekend and we couldn't have been more comfortable. The main house and carriage house gave our group plenty of room to relax, cook, play games, and have fun. We even hired a company to put on a craw fish boil on in the courtyard, it was perfect! The location is fantastic and is the perfect blend of being in the action but also being just far enough away from the action. The owners and the caretaker Nikki went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. We left feeling like we had made a true friend in Nikki. All 8 of us highly recommend this home, you will not regret the trip, we can not wait to go back!
While this home is on an elegant residential block, it is just steps to restaurants, clubs, shops, galleries and many historic attractions.
