New Orleans 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.

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 New Orleans
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.
