Overview

Bywater House Rental Photos and Description

This shotgun house,(meaning 'no halls, one room after another'. You could shoot a shotgun from the front door out the backdoor, but please don't) is in one of the oldest residential neighborhoods outside of the French Quarter (the original city of New Orleans). Many of the people that originally lived in the Bywater were craftsmen, so the houses are not fancy, but have character.

Suitability:
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Debbie Khoury

My husband and I are retired educators who left New Orleans post-Katrina for a warm, dry place to spend our 'golden years'. After 2 1/2 years in Phoenix (which is a lovely place), we miss New Orleans terribly and hope to return as often as possible. There is no place like it in the world.

Debbie Khoury purchased this house in 2000

Why Debbie Khoury chose Bywater

This was a rental house until we renovated this house for our use when we return to New Orleans for frequent visits (a must). It is not glamorous, (nor are we), but very clean, cute, comfortable and convenient.

What makes this house unique

New Orleans is a city of 'neighborhoods' and this one is a diverse and unpretenious neighborhood of real working New Orleanians, but close enough to enjoy all that the French Quarter and Downtown have to offer. The house has old-world charm in it high ceilings, pine floors and pocket doors. It has a fenced yard for privacy, but notice how the neighbors 'porch-sit' and everyone speaks to everyone.

Wonderful family stay in New Orleans

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5-6 had the most perfect stay at the house on Desire St. We were there for 4 nights and the issue of the privacy worked out much better than we had thought it might. The house is so elegant, lovely, comfortable and well equipped and we also loved the neighborhood. We went to several of the suggested restaurants and I even found a couple of grocery stores to stock up in. We did have a car and it was useful since we had to attend functions in other neighborhoods, but there is also public busses available and taxies of course. We had fun and enjoyed the visiting chickens and cats as well when we hung out on the front porch. Would recommend the place highly to anyone at all.

Excellent Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
The property was perfect for our girls get away. It was clean and well maintained, spacious, the beds were comfortable, and the back patio was ideal for sitting outside to drink our morning, chicory coffee. We also utilized the fully equipped kitchen every morning for our egg po-boys. An added bonus for some extra laughs were the roosters, hens and chicks that would parade around the neighborhood in a "second line" and give us free wake up calls. The owner responded to questions in a timely manner and was always very helpful. The property is a little bit off the beaten path, so a rental car is recommended and there is off-street parking. I'm originally from New Orleans, although I never stayed in the Bywater, it felt safe and navigating was easy. I would recommend this property to friends and family as well as for my own future bookings;-)

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5
I booked this house with several colleagues for a conference, and would gladly book here again. First, the owner was super nice and responsive. I never met her in person, but she responded to emails, texts and phone calls in a prompt and professional way. Also, upon final payment, she sends the most helpful information on where to eat, what to see (and what not to see), and where to go for great music. Though I have been to New Orleans several times, I greatly appreciated someone taking the time to spell things out for me.

Bonus: there is a bus stop about 1/2 block away. If you're a person who loves walking, the French Quarter is 30 minutes away on foot. If not, it's a cheap cab ride, or an even cheaper bus ride away.

As if that weren't enough, the house was marvelous! I had seen the property via photos on the site, but pictures don't do the place justice. So much personality and light! The house was more than spacious for our needs, and the 'shotgun' style kept the atmosphere open and casual. My colleagues and I enjoyed sitting out in the yard in the evenings when we had time. This was better than some stuffy old one room hotel reservation by far.

As a displaced Southerner, I really appreciated the roosters that roamed the neighborhood. I'd much rather hear crowing than street traffic and sirens.

I will be staying here again. Hopefully soon!

Very lovely home

  • 4 of 5
This house was very clean and spacious. We had 4 people there and it was very comfortable. The only strange part was that the kitchen and the main bath are at the back of the house so one couple had to go through the other couple's room to get there. The neighborhood was a little rough. The area wasn't kept up very well and we were told not to walk around at night. Lots of boarded up businesses but the ones that were open were quite nice. The house is only a block and a half into the neighborhood, so it's a quick walk to get across the main road to the more hipster neighborhood of Bywater. That said, I really didn't feel like I was in any danger or anything like that. It's easy to get to the French quarter by bus or taxi. We even walked there one day. It was about a 2 mile walk. This house was a great value and it was nice to have the back yard to hang out in.

Owner's Response: I try to explain the "shotgun" style design where you have to walk through each room to get to the next and know it's an unusual set up in most places (although very common in New Orleans). Also, I understand someone thinking the neighborhood is a little rough. It's not a wealthy neighborhood, but the neighbors, for the most part are very nice and most of the houses, although modest, are well-kept on our block. The house and neighborhood aren't glamorous, but, I think have charm.

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5
My husband was a little suprised driving to the house, there is a lot of rundown areas a little scarry at first, but New Orleans is slowly making a come back. Once we got on the block the house was located on it was fine, everyone we encountered on the street was friendly. The house was perfect I could have stayed forever, there is not a thing I would change. Was decorated great.I love the shotgun style!! Hope to stay here again soon. I highly recomend frenchman street, great music and art for sale in the little alley at night loved it! Cab was $8.00 from house to frenchman st.

Owner's Response: I agree that there are some rundown properties in the area, but New Orleans tends to be that way. This is where we stay when visiting and enjoy the neighborhood's and the city's diversity.
