I am a native New Orleanian but live in Mississippi, this is our New Orleans French Quarter home.

Edward purchased this house in 2000

Safe in the heart of the Quarter close to everything but far enough down into the Quarter to be nestled within a mostly residential area where the noise level is more acceptable. We are literally a half block from Bourbon St however.

Cottage sleeps 4 people and has a brick courtyard / patio in the rear.

FRENCH QUARTER FESTIVAL

Great place in a perfect location. The house was very clean with everything you need for a great trip. The court yard is a great place to start and end your day.

GREAT LOCATION....SOME FUNKINESS (MOST TO BE EXPECTED GIVEN AGE)

  • 4 of 5
We just returned from a fun trip to New Orleans for the Rock and Roll Marathon (and to visit our daughter who's in college there). We've visited a few times and stayed in "normal" hotels (Hampton Inn is nice) and historic French Quarter hotels. This was our first time renting a home in the Quarter. (Though we've rented homes before elsewhere.) We were traveling with two grandparents, a child and three adults. (One planning to "camp out" in the living room/couch.) The reviews opinions of the home varied a bit throughout our group. However, we all appreciated the fact we were living in a bit of French Quarter history. That said, we felt more could have been done to make the stay a bit more comfortable and less reminiscent of the downsides involved in living in the 1800s.

First off, living in a home surrounded by brick that was laid a couple hundred years ago is cool. The layout of the home is a bit weird, which is likely to be expected since it was built before indoor plumbing. (The upstairs rooms do not have a door between them...so no privacy. And the 1/d bath is inside on of the bedrooms. Not ideal.) The kitchen was small but serviceable. (But it's not well stocked for major cooking.) The home is also quite lived in. The fridge included items of unknown vintage and we did have a stain or two on some of the linens. (The home was clean overall.)

The courtyard was nice, though more of an asset in the summer when the evenings are warm, I'm sure. The entry way (down a tiny alley) was weird...but ok). The location was great...though a bit noisier than we expected as revelers tended to sit on the curb outside the home and drink/argue. (Right on the other side of the living room windows.) Which brings up the biggest negative of the home from our perspective. The living room windows are completely boarded up. No light whatsoever passes through them into the main living area. There also is no visibility or easy access onto Dumaine Street. (Our group felt that if you were going to be hearing the people going crazy outside, it might be fun to be able to people watch, at least.) As it was, the main living area is a cave. Not a problem at night, when it feels right. But a major downer during the day. (It didn't help that many light bulbs were out and/or light fixtures were weak.)

Overall, we were a bit disappointed, but not horribly.

Owner's Response: All the windows in the home are "shuttered".. both for security and for hurricane protection. They actually do open ... there is a bolt that latches them closed... by undoing the latch bolt the two shutters open up. You must open the French Windows first to get to the shutters ..I am so sorry I didn't explain this to you first...

The house was built back in the late 1700's and then most all the homes had heavy shutters on the exterior. Of course they are still a part of this house.

GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We planned our trip to New Orleans for my husband's birthday. We chose this house because of the location & it looked really nice. When we arrived, the house exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful historic home and the location is so convenient for walking around the French Quarter. We didn't drive our car once. I would definitely stay in this home again & I highly recommend this home for anyone's New Orleans stay.

Located in the Heart of the French Quarter...just doors down from Bourbon and Royal Streets, yet nestled in an area that is in the center of the Quarter and more residential with less noise. We are about a block from Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, the oldest Bar in the USA, and the actual Blacksmith Shop of the Pirate Jean Lafitte. You can walk to the Superdome from the house too. Everything is walking distance that the Quarter has to offer. We are in a safe area too. The house was built in the late 1700's and is post between brick, which is indicative of the oldest buildings in the French Quarter.
