About Jesse

I have searched for a second home in this neighborhood for several years. I feel that I have found the perfect location, central to everything you need, and the peacefulness of a safe residential neighborhood. I am extending my home to you when I am not there because it is too beautiful not to share.

Jesse purchased this house in 2011

Why Jesse chose Faubourg Marigny

1 block form Frenchman street which has the best music and food to be found in New Orleans.

3 blocks from French Quarter.

Tons of amazing restaurants and shops within the surrounding blocks.

Safe and friendly residential neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Historic home with all the right updates while keeping all the important vintage features.

12 foot ceilings and floor plan make for a very cozy yet open home.

Great Experience, Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Recently visited NOLA for a long weekend with friends and family and loved staying in the smile house. I would definitely contact Jesse again if coming down to visit. The house is very well done, and there is plenty of room and amenities. Walking distance to everything you need, getting to and from Bourbon street is super easy.

Great

We had a bachelorette party here and we had a great time. The tempurpedic bed was great. 10-15 minute walk to bourbon street. You have to check out the Ruby Slipper and Horn's that are just a block away. Would definitely recommend and stay here again in the future.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in this home for a family vacation. We had 10 family members share the home....my sister and her little family, our parents, my brother, and my family. The home only has 2 bedrooms, but there was plenty of space for the whole family. The house has a well equipped kitchen, washer, dryer, and really nice bathrooms. The home comes furnished with toiletries, even laundry soap (which we brought our own anyway). The home is within walking distance to the French Market where you can catch a streetcar.

We felt safe while we were there and will definitely stay again if we are near the area. We only drove our car to the grocery store, so if you don't really need a car.

Great Bachelorette Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my group of 10! It was much bigger than it looks in the pictures, and there was plenty of sleeping space for everyone. It was extremely convenient to either walk, grab a taxi or pedi-cab to anywhere we wanted to go. We were also very happy that there was excellent dining less than a block from us. Everyone loved this house!

Review

  • 4 of 5

The location was great for the exception of a few scary blocks of rift raft around the area. There is a bar a few houses down the road so a lot of partying was going on during the night. Bring a white noise make. A crying baby was frequently heard in the house during the night which was disturbing because none of us had a baby. The appliances, stocked kitchen, dishwasher, fresh bath towels, and comfortable atmosphere made this place great! It slept 10 adults comfortably!

Owner's Response: Yes. Like any big city you are always only a few blocks away from the undesirable areas to the unfamiliar. Stick to The Marigny and The French Quarter and you will feel comfortable. Though the house is in a residential neighborhood, you will hear some noise some nights from the corner bar. And as for a crying baby, well that is a new one to me ;)

We loved the Smile House from the decor to the comfortable beds. Everything you needed and more. Easy walk to Bourbon St. Or Frenchmen St. Loved having the washer and dryer.
