OK house.

  • 3 of 5
Overall we had a nice stay. House was a little run down (cracked kitchen tiles, bedroom ceiling plaster spots missing), but very clean. Air conditioning worked great. My main problem was communication with owner. 2 days before our stay I realized he had not given me instructions on how to get key, so I sent a couple a emails - no response. The next day I started calling every 15 minutes and luckily the owner's wife happened to be home for lunch and gave me the contact number. Local contact was responsive and we got in all right, but it sure was a bad/worried start to our stay.

Great Stay! Wonderful neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5
A perfect stay for 2 couples on a teachers Spring Break get away. The home was as described. Yes, it was somewhat dated, but that added to the character. Being a carpenter, I of course noticed some issues, but nothing that detracted from the good feeling of a nice home in a good neighborhood.

Great neighborhood amenities noted before like coffee and wine shops, and grocery stores. But the big plus was the diverse restaurants. Spanish, Italian, Mexican, a cafe, and one with local cuisine were all nestled amongst houses, unlike a commercial shopping area. Quite nice.

A few blocks walk from the home is City Park with a cemetery on the way which was actually quite fascinating with its ornate vaults. While at City Park take in the Sculpture Garden followed by beignets and cafe au lait at Morning Call.

Just outside City Park you can catch a Street Car to take you to all the other stuff the city has to offer. But it was always nice to return back to the quiet neighborhood for a great dinner and a nice home where we could sit around the living room for discussions of that day or planning the next.

Thank you for sharing the home with us.

Great neighborhood stay

  • 4 of 5
Good communication with the property owner prior to the stay.

The house was plenty roomy for 4 people, and would very comfortably fit 6. Kitchen was fully stocked for cooking, and two grocery stores nearby made it easy to cook the nights we needed to.

Very easy to get around the city without a car from this location, with the streetcar and a bus nearby. And City Park is close, which is why we chose the property (near the end of the marathon finish)

Only complaint were the showers - finicky to use.

authentic New Orleans neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
The best aspect of this house is the location, not the proximity to attractions, but it's authentic New Orleans neighborhood. It is untouched by big business. We loved the coffee shop, fresh food, and everyone there lived in the neighborhood. It was nice to join their weekend pace instead of a more bustling french quarter or magazine street. The house was less expensive per night than others in the area, and appropriately so. It has a no nonsense down to earth feel. You can see from the pictures that it has not been updated in some time, but feels appropriate for the house and area. We felt comfortable here, clean and had everything we needed. In the mornings we enjoyed sitting at the table in the back yard. We came strictly for events in the near by park, and would not discourage others who want to spend more time in the french quarter and dont mind driving. We would stay here again!

I recently stayed here with 4-5 other guys for our buddy's wedding, which happened to be at a church on Esplanade less than 2 minutes walk from this house. Some of the decor is a little dated but really we had no other legitimate complaints or displeasure with the property.

Beautiful City Park is only minutes away by car or on foot, where you might visit the NO Museum of Art, rent a bike, walk around, etc. Downtown NOLA and the French Quarter are about 3 miles or 15 minutes away by car. A cab ride back from there cost about $10.

The neighborhood is nice and Esplanade Ave is beautiful and safe. Coffee shops, restaurants, convenience stores close by.

We loved this location!!! The house was so charming and we liked that it was stocked with the things you normally have to buy like salt, oil, coffee. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood looking at sights and architecture. We were there during the Louisana seafood festival. It was perfect to catch the street car and ride around the city to various locations. Thank you so much for sharing your house with us! We will definitely recommend you to people.

Car: not necessary

Located in a self contained, fully walkable community within the city of New Orleans. Within walking distance are 4 excellent independent restaurants, two local coffee spots (not chains!), a locally owned wine shop with weekly tastings and a locally owned bookstore. Jazz Fest is literally in our back yard, and City Park with the New Orleans Museum, tennis courts and acres of open land around the bayous is a 5 minute walk. The French Quarter is an easy 15 minute bike ride, or catch the streetcar near City Park. As for the neighborhood itself, here's what the Times Picayune roving reporter had to say:

A jazzy little block off Esplanade

The Times-Picayune

THE NEIGHBORHOOD: A sliver of Faubourg St. John (in the Esplanade Ridge Historic District) snuggled up to the Fair Grounds Racetrack and wedged between the cemeteries and Esplanade Avenue. This small enclave includes three short streets -- Verna, Marie and Leda -- all carved from the extensive grounds of the landmark Luling Mansion, also known as the Louisiana Jockey Club.

THE BLOCK: The 1400 block of Verna Court on the racetrack (or even) side of the street, just off Esplanade Avenue. Houses on this side back onto the Fair Grounds.

THE HOUSES: An assortment of early 20th-century houses in varying sizes and styles. There is no real pattern. One comes right up to the sidewalk, another is set far back; one has an ample front yard and garden, another is on a terraced lot. Yet emblems of early 20th-century style, such as exposed rafter tails and low, wide dormers, are abundant and help unite the group.

PHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY STEPHANIE BRUNO / THE TIMES-PICAYUNEThe houses in the 1400 block of Verna Court have a bird's-eye view of Jazzfest just across the fence. The structures are as varied as the melodies their owners can hear from the front porches.

What would it be like to have the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival presented by Shell in your backyard? To sit on your porch and listen to the music, to people-watch as fest-goers walk by? There are a few blocks that afford such an experience: Any place on Fortin Street, where one of the entrances is; maybe on the lake side of the track, near Belfort Street.

But I want to visit Verna Court, because I have always been fascinated by the tiny hideaway and where it is situated.

Anatomy of the block

Verna runs roughly north-south, like Leda Court, while Marie Street runs east-west. The streets were named for sisters when the grounds of the Luling Mansion were subdivided. At the north end of Verna, on the racetrack side, there are no houses, just a fence and a view of the track. A tree holds a child's swing. A little closer to Esplanade are the houses, about eight total. I focus on a group of four in the center, because their individual personalities draw me in. A pretty interesting group of residents seems to have chosen this block.

I start with a large stucco house with terraced grounds and a large, square tower. You could watch the horse races (or Neville Brothers) from here. This house still has a terra-cotta tile roof, and the color is picked up in the accent hue applied to the window sash.

Next door, a more modest Arts and Crafts-style house is enlivened with vivid, warm colors. It has a low, wide dormer and a roof overhang with exposed rafter tails. But what really gets my attention is the front yard. Half of it -- the side closer to Esplanade -- is sand, and it's clearly a playground for children. Under the cypress tree, I see toy trucks and a pail -- someone has been digging. Fanciful metal sculptures are arranged in the sand field, too: They look like stylized jazz musicians, but maybe I just have music on my mind.

A two-story purple house stands next door. Someone has taken a lot of time to get the colors just right, design the garden and add personal elements. I take a closer look at the gable boards and think that perhaps they have been created especially for this house. The pattern of carving is one I have never seen anywhere else. The garden is lush and features a metal orb fountain. Who would think that olive, purple and salmon would work well together? But they do. The biggest chromatic surprise: blue under the eaves and on the porch floor.

After the exuberance of the dragon house (did I forget to mention the dragon on one of the gables?), the simplicity of the adjacent Craftsman double is almost comforting. A terraced lot leads to a porch with chaste white columns neatly set off by red brick. Cement planters hold begonias, which add another bit of color.
