Overview

Touro House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths and 1/2 bath, (Can sleeps up to 12-14))

The General just outside the Garden District - walking distance from Pascal Manales Restuarant - 'Home of Barbecue Shrimp', Charlie Steak House, and a few minutes away from the finest antique shops that New Orleans has to offer, four blocks away from the Freret Street Festival (held in mid April), 3 blocks to view Mardi Gras Parades and a short lazy ride to the Audubon Zoo. The CBD and French Quarters are only 6-15 minutes away by car.

The General features three large full independent bedrooms, 2 full bath (shower and tub) and a half bath stocked with fresh crisp white linen and towels, two great rooms for entertaining or leisurely lounging; and a nice side and back yard for grilling or boiling. The General is located in a modest family, friendly, dog walking neighborhood. Come once and you will come back again. As we say in New Orleans, 'Laissez les bon temp rouler.'

Parking is available. This raised basement Katrina damaged home was newly renovated in time for Superbowl 2012 and Mardi Gras. It is minutes from excitement, dining, and tour attractions.

Also, the general is just blocks away from Atkinson-Stern Tennis Center. Opened in 1897, it was originally a private club operated by the New Orleans Lawn Tennis Club. It is one of the oldest tennis venues in the United StatesIn 1973 the city of New Orleans acquired and renamed the facility as the Stern Tennis Center in honor of Edgar Stern, a philanthropist who contributed financially to the Center. Stern Tennis Center was expanded later in recognition of Nehemiah Atkinson, manager and talented player of the facility. For two decades, Nehemiah Atkinson coached at the tennis center and inspired many New Orleanians including African-American adults and children to play tennis.

Keywords: Garden District, reasonable rate, comfortable and relaxed quarters, on the Mardi Gras route, close to tourist attractions and minutes from French Quarters and famous restaurants and shopping district.

Very family friendly

  • 5 of 5

My family was in town for a wedding .The layout was perfect for my family and our relatives who were staying in hotels but chose to hang out with us between events. The owner was very easy to deal with and the house was as advertised.

Perfect Party Pad!!

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us from Houston traveled to New Orleans to celebrate a friend's 30th birthday. We were so lucky to have stumbled upon the gem that is The General! There is space for 15 people to sleep comfortably and there are 2.5 bathrooms. We enjoyed hanging out on the elevated patio. It is within walking distance to some cool bars and coffee shops, as well as the streetcar stops. We actually had more fun partying at the house than at bars on Bourbon Street! We will definitely be back!

Great NOLA House!

  • 4 of 5

The house was huge! Plenty of beds for at least 10! Two bathrooms and a 1/2 made it awesome for 6 ppl to get ready in the morning. It was only .5 miles from the streetcar and had one off-street spot. We had no trouble finding parking for the 2nd car. My only complaint was that the floors were super dirty and the fridge was dirty. The house next door is super sketchy but once we spent some time in the neighborhood we realized that it was a great area.

30th bday

  • 4 of 5

Some friends and I stayed at the General to celebrate my thirtieth birthday. We had an incredible experience thanks to easy accommodations. The General is located perfectly between multiple attractions and restaurants. With the amount of room and beds, we were able to sleep comfortably and have plenty of space to get ready and hangout. I will definitely be using The General on my next stay in New Orleans. Thanks so much for your hospitality and friendliness.

Great place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely, and had beds for all 9 of us (only one couple), and plenty of bedding too. It's in a nice neighborhood, and you can walk to the Garden District / street car, but I'd recommend having a car to get around. Plenty of parking though! Checking in and out was easy as well, and the owner was very responsive.
