Our family lives in and LOVES New Orleans!!! It's food, people, culture, eccentric characters, art and music are rarely matched in authenticity and true passion!

It is a joy of ours to share the goodness of this city~!

Sandra Spedale purchased this apartment in 2006

Location on the Street Car Line, charm, and historic culture are some of the reasons we purchased this property. It is a private haven nestled away in the back of a home built in the late 1800s.

It sits within the rows of beautiful homes and neighbors the commercial areas of Carrollton for convenience and constant culture. It is right around the corner from historic St. Charles Ave where the beautiful Audubon Park awaits your stroll, bike ride or jog with the many other citizens enjoying this amazing city!

Great place for kids and a dog!

  • 5 of 5
My kids (11 and 14) and my dog (a greyhound) and I spent a wonderful week in this lovely apartment. It had everything we needed and was quiet and private. Loved the patio! Walking the dog through the neighborhood was a pleasure every single day. The owners kindly let us borrow a crate for her, so she would feel secure when we went out to explore the city. With the streetcar just outside our door, we had an easy time getting around without our car, which was parked securely inside a locked gate. We will be back!

Great local experience at a great price!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the house for Mardi Gras and it was perfect for what we needed! We had lived in New Orleans for a couple years so we were familiar with the area. You can stay here and feel like a local, but are only a shirt street car ride away from all the major sites uptown. There are many great restaurants right outside your door. The house was perfect for my husband and me and our two children. It was very convenient to have the washer and dryer and our own separate space (vs a hotel). The kitchen is great for all the yummy New Orleans leftovers. The pictures accurately portray the decor and set up. The courtyard outside is cute and our kids enjoyed being able to play outside. It was quiet and off the beaten path while still being conveniently located. The price was fantastic compared to other similar accommodations. You aren't going to be getting the heart of the French Quarter, Bourbon Street experience in this spot, more like experiencing the city like a local. After having lived in New Orleans, I think this is an excellent spot to really get a feel for the real culture of the city, but still be close to the touristy stuff. The futon is convenient for the kids or another couple. The accommodations and beds were comfortable and cute, not super fancy, but exactly what we were expecting. The house was decorated with Mardi Gras beads for our arrival along with wine and beer in the fridge, tea, coffee, and any pots, pans, and silverware we needed. The gated off street parking is a commodity in New Orleans, and we felt very safe in this location. We were very satisfied with our stay. Thank you! We'll be back!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from a terrific vacation in the Big Easy and this rental could not have been better. The owner and property manager were incredible. There was a mix up with our hotel and they arranged for us to come in a day early. The property has easy access to the trolley with cheap transportation to the French Quarter and wonderful, neighborhood restaurants that are low key. I recommended the rental to a friend coming in for Jazz Fest. Perfect.

Great Little Place in NOLA

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I rented the apartment for our trip to NOLA to bring in the new year. It had everything we needed, and was close to many of the places we wanted to visit. Additionally, the hosts were great and very accommodating. I'd recommend the place to anyone!

Perfect retreat after a full day's agenda....

Perfect retreat after a full day's agenda....
  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved the neighborhood. Very safe, esp at night, there were plenty of female late night runners in the street. Easy on and off public transportation, the buses and the streetcars were efficient and clean. Took them into the quarter, nice short ride with other travelers. Loved walking up and down St. Charles Ave which is just down the street. Walked to Magazine St one night, it was about an hour stroll, but happy we did because we've never explored Magazine St before; the streets on the way are absolutely beautiful and safe. There's a Whole Foods there where we picked up the week's groceries. We drove to City Park (the Carrollton streetcar was not running), which is just a few minutes up Carrollton, it was our favorite spot to run, beautiful park with a 24-hr cafe, museum, trails, miniature golf, etc, etc. If we lived in NOLA, I'd have to live near City Park, that's how much I enjoyed it.
The apartment was well stocked with everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. Misty made herself readily available to make sure we were comfortable. They left complimentary coffee, wine, and fruit which were very much appreciated. We loved that it had a washer/dryer and full kitchen to cook. The bed was comfortable and there were ample drawers to keep your clothes. There were heaters and a/c units in both large rooms, we used the heaters and worked great, warmed up quickly.
We were able to bring our little dog, who was warmly welcomed, and we drove our own car where we were able to park off-street, which was very nice.
Our only complaints would be the bathroom needs some renovation or a cleaning overhaul, the curtains weren't dark enough for privacy throughout, and the man-gate was inaccessible so we had to use the large push-open gate which was cumbersome.
Overall, we had a nice stay and would definitely stay again.

Jewel in the Big Easy

  • 5 of 5
This was by far, the absolute best VRBO experience I have ever had! We were looking for something reasonably priced that we could just sleep and shower near the French Quarter. This is a homey little apartment in the backyard of a Historical home. It is perfect for a couple or a family with 2 kids. My kids are 14 & 8 and they slept comfortably on the futon in the living room. It was walking distance to the streetcar. We only used our own car when we went across the river to visit family. The property is gated and we felt perfectly safe leaving our car there when we were gone.

The property itself was good. It is not ritzy, but it has been remodeled and it's more than comfortable. I think that it is perfect for the vibe of the area. The property manager, Misty, is around to answer questions and help you with any needs you might have.

The greatest experience from this rental was the hospitality. Misty called us while we were driving down from the North to make sure that we were safe and answer any questions. She even stayed up to help us into the property when we arrived in the middle of the night. While we were there she checked with us to make sure we had everything and gave lots of great tips for visiting the city. She and the property manager were helpful and present, but not overbearing. They were there as needed, without "bugging" us. They even left special touches in the apartment for us and the kids. Bottom line is you can't go wrong with this rental and I will recommend it to anyone visiting the New Orleans area.

Carrollton is the section of New Orleans that is at the far end of Uptown from the French Quarter, between the Audubon & University District of New Orleans and Jefferson Parish. It is often considered part of Uptown, but it has its own history and traditions (including being a separate city in the 19th century), so it will be treated on its own here. The high ground of the 'Carrollton Spur' was fortunately above the great flood which devastated much of the New Orleans area after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, leaving this charming neighborhood intact.

Oak Street has restaurants, shops, cafes, bars, and live music venues.

It is at the far end of the St. Charles Streetcar line (the green cars) whose other end is on Canal Street in the Central Business District. Carrollton is near Tulane and Loyola Universities and many students and professors live here and patronize the local businesses. It is a mixed residential/commercial neighborhood, with urban advantages where the trees are taller than most of the buildings. Carrollton has many small business and good restaurants. The food and shopping make it an attractive place for visitors to spend half a day in between streetcar tours.

The streetcar runs through Carrollton on Saint Charles, then turns on to Carrollton Avenue at a place known as The Riverbend. You see a cluster of restaurants, shops and businesses here. There are more a block up, beyond the one bit of late 20th century architecture visible, the mini-strip mall with the Walgreens, behind which you'll find a small park surrounded by Victorian houses made into specialty shops and restaurants. The two other parts of Carrollton the visitor should know about are Maple Street, which parallels St. Charles, intersecting with Carrollton just inland from the Riverbend, with row of businesses running a pleasant 6 blocks down to Cherokee. The other business street is Oak Street, 4 blocks further inland (away from the river and St. Charles) than Maple extending on the opposite side of Carrollton Avenue. Long less upscale than Maple, in recent years many trendy shops and restaurants have opened on Oak as well.

From the French Quarter, Central Business District, or Uptown, take the St. Charles streetcar, and for the most central location get off at the Riverbend or Maple Street stop. Almost everything mentioned here will be within a maximum of 6 blocks walk in this pedestrian friendly neighborhood.

Walk around enjoying the Victorian residential architecture and plentiful flowering plants, sip coffee or eat a meal at an outdoor table on Carrollton Avenue while the old streetcars rumble by.

The Maple Leaf Bar is a popular live music venue

Anthony Bean Community Theater 1333 S. Carrollton Ave Check website for show schedule.

Old Carrollton City Hall. The neoclassical building on Carrollton between Maple an Hampson is now a school.

John Kennedy Toole's House: Fans of the novel 'A Confederacy of Dunces' can take a walk by the Pulitzer Prize winning author's former home on Hampson at the downtown river corner of Adams. There's a historic marker out front. Look from the sidewalk; it's still a private home.

Palmer Park, at Carrollton & Claiborne Avenues and the end of the streetcar line. The last Saturday of each month it hosts the Arts Market of New Orleans [3] from 10a to 4p, with tents of arts and crafts vendors, refreshments, and free live music. Occasionally hosts other events and concerts.

Po-Boy Festival, Big one day festival each November; Oak Street and the surrounding area is lined with food vendors, featuring great po-boy sandwiches and other local treats. Also free live bands and other special events.

Live music

Carrollton Station, 8140 Willow Street, at Dublin a block up from Carrollton

Maple Leaf Bar, 8316 Oak, tel. 866-9359 [5]: Contemporary New Orleans brass bands like Rebirth, (who play here every Tuesday night when they are not traveling); also R&B, Cajun, Zydeco, and more at this funky legendary local music venue -- includes the college crowd when school is in; dancing; late-night shows; casual; funky. (Despite the name, remember it's on Oak Street, 3 blocks up from Carrollton, not Maple).

Eat

Carrollton has some of New Orleans' finest restaurants; for the number and variety within a short walk of each other it is rivaled only by the French Quarter.

Budget

Restaurant on Maple Street

Babylon Cafe, 7724 Maple Street. Middle Eastern, great value and excellent home-made bread

Camelia Grill 626 S. Carrollton just off St. Charles: A favorite with locals and visitors, it's an old style diner done New Orleans style. When there's a line it moves fast, but if it's dauntingly out the door remember that Carrollton has lots of other good eats within a short walk. Some think its best caught off hours and avoided during lunch rush and during Mardi Gras, when many people who don't seem to know anywhere else in town to eat.
