Overview

French Quarter Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4-6

Location, Location, Location! A quiet retreat only 1 Block from Canal and a half Block from Bourbon puts you smack dab in the middle of the action but above the fray.

Just step out the door of this fully equipped apartment onto the light airy Atrium, down the stairs one floor (or convenient elevator) and out the security gate to the heart beat of the French Quarter.

It is only steps to all the best the Vieux Carre has to offer. Great Jazz clubs, award winning restaurants, karaoke bars, art and antique shops, street musicians and performers are all just a short stroll from your door step.

New Orleans has improved its streetcar lines and has a station just down the block to take you from Canal straight to the Super Dome, so this location is ideal for any activities there. Just walk one block down the street, hop a streetcar and you are there! For the Jazz Fest you can catch it to Carrollton, transfer to City Park and walk to the Fairgrounds. You can go down St. Charles to view the beautiful homes on that famous street and visit the Audubon Zoo. You don’t need a car to get around!

Why spend your time in this amazing city in a boring hotel with no personality when you can live like the locals with all the comforts of home? Come back after a busy day to unwind in a lovely, quiet apartment that sleeps 6 comfortably. The queen bed in the bedroom has a memory foam mattress and is extremely cozy! There is an additional twin in the bedroom with a pillow top mattress. The living room has a comfortable queen sleeper sofa and a day bed with a pillow top mattress that sleeps one.

The full size kitchen is furnished with all necessities for simple meals. There is a washer/dryer, iron and small ironing board and a hair dryer for your convenience. There is cable with a flat screen 40” TV and Free WiFi.

Just outside your door is a table and chairs to relax and enjoy the atrium under the blue skies or the midnight stars. There is also a rooftop pool and outdoor grilling area to enjoy if the weather permits. The balcony on the pool level offers views of the clubs on Bourbon and you can enjoy the sounds from music venues without the cover charge!

We’ve provided all the conveniences of home so your trip to the “Big Easy” can be just that.

LOVED this cute, quirky place!

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I stayed in this condo for 3 nights last weekend, and we absolutely loved it. You can't beat the location. It was so easy to go back to the condo after lots of walking around the French Quarter and relax before getting ready for dinner. The condo itself was perfect for the 2 of us. It was nice to have the extra room to be able to sit in the living room and have morning coffee and relax. Beds were extremely comfortable, and the bathroom had everything we needed. The kitchen was very well-stocked with all kinds of cookware and dishes. Also, as 2 females traveling together, we felt safe in this location, since the door to the building was only accessible to residents/guests, and the door to the condo had a secure deadbolt. I also have to mention how pleasant Mr. Andersen was to deal with. He accommodated a couple of special requests for us, and he has always sent a quick email response to any questions I had. Just a good all-around experience, and I would absolutely stay here again!

Owner is such a pleasure to work with!

Unfortunately, I will not make it to New Orleans to actually stay in this rental, but I felt compelled to write a review because the owner has been so fabulous and so understanding that I had to cancel my trip for Mardi Gras weekend! I never write reviews but he has been exceptional to work with. When I make it out to New Orleans, this will be the first place I inquire about in the future just based on my interactions with the owner.

I would definitely stay here again! Slept six girls comfortably. Apartment was very clean. There were plenty of towels and linens and even a washer and dryer if needed. The pool was smaller than expected but it didn't matter because this place truly is a step away from Bourbon Street. It's convenient and the gated property is safe. Surprisingly quiet given the proximity to Bourbon...you'd have no idea that it's right outside! The property owner is a pleasure to deal with -- Extremely helpful and responds to all inquiries quickly. No delay in having our deposit returned either, which is great after a weekend away. Ready to plan a return trip!!

AWESOME STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had the most fun while staying. The condo was great!! Everything was there and we were so close to the strip we could sit outside and hear the music. Locked gate gave me extra safe feeling as well. Having a full kitchen and laundry were great. We were able to save money by filling up the place with food since we were there 5 days, and being able to wash clothes was nice so we were able to pack out bags easier when it was time to go. I definetly reccomend this for your stay. I had only one issue and it was the pool, it needed to be cleaned more often as its up in the sunlight and that breaks down the chemicals faster. But That was my only negative.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying at "Above the Fray" for the week of my 40th birthday with my mom and a good friend. I used to live in New Orleans and was very excited to return to see my friends, enjoy one of my very favorite cities in the world, and bring in a new decade. I started planning my trip in April and Jim was very patient with all my nervous questions and frequent emails.
The apartment is super cute and the location can't be beat. It is a short walk to the St. Charles street car, the entire Quarter is at your finger tips, and great jazz on Frenchman street is not to far away. I love that it is filled with mardi gras beads, posters, and such bright colors. Plus there are lots of feather boas, something you can never have enough of! The apartment is like a little nest. It is quiet and the beds are super comfortable. It provides a great place to recharge after all the madness on Bourbon street. The washer and dryer are also great, so you don't have to return home with dirty clothing.
The roof deck provides a lovely view of the city and sky. The chairs are a little uncomfortable, but thats a not that big a deal.
New Orleans is an amazing city and staying in this apartment really lets you experience the best it has to offer. My trip and birthday was amazing and staying at this wonderful apartment was the icing on the cake.
I would highly recommend it!

Amazing Location, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5
We came in for a bachelor party and we couldn't have chosen a better rental property! Our expectations were all more than exceeded with the unit and its location is right in the middle of all the action of Bourbon St. The owner was always available and went above and beyond to return items we accidentally left on our departure. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone and will be the first place I think of on my next visit to New Orleans.
