Treme - Lafitte House Rental Photos and Description
Quiet Retreat seeks quiet Guests
We are on a peaceful family residential block that happens to be steps from everything. We have children and families living there, the fruit and vegetable carts calling out every morning. We seek travelers welcome to be a part of that but not disrespect it with noise and disruption. We are not for everyone, but we are very very special. Foodies, families, Girls weekends, Reunions. Beautiful complete rebuild of an historic 1840s New Orleans home.
This is actually two units, one just above the other, with a large private common deck just our the back door with a wonderful shade tree and a catwalk with views overlooking the Marigny and French Quarter all the way to the Mississippi. We have a 2BR/1BA unit and a 1BR/1BA unit that can be combined for larger parties (4 Bedroom 2BA), on a QUIET residential street that happens to be steps to the Quarter and Frenchman street. 4 blocks to Bourbon but retire to a peaceful beautifully renovated oasis.
TOTAL of 5 queen beds, 4 bedrooms, 2 enormous bathrooms each with stackable LG washer/dryer. Each unit features hardwood floors and tiled bathrooms.
The downstairs 2BR has 12 ft high ceilings. We have been doing vacation rentals for 4 years but have just completed the complete renovation of this property October 1, 2013. We had several bookings before we were listed and photos were taken. It is an amazing experience in a fantastic location, steps from Storyville, Congo Square, Louis Armstrong Park, and Cafe du Monde is a 10 minute stroll. We are 4 blocks from Bourbon Street.

I used to be a travel journalist and believe the best way to experience a place is to live in a real neighborhood.
Dave purchased this house in 2013
Why Dave chose Treme - Lafitte
There is simply nothing remotely like it anywhere in the city. This is NOT a shotgun where you walk through each others bedrooms, in fact the bedrooms and bathrooms are massive by any standard. This is for the travelers who enjoy quiet at the end of a long day or night out on the town.
What makes this house unique
QUIET just a stones throw from the heart of the city. Huge rooms, peace and quiet, a real neighborhood on the edge of all the tourism and noise.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I was so lucky to find this wonderful home. The home is renovated down to the last nail and it is lovely. This also means very clean, a biggie for me. The rooms are spacious, the windows let in lovely light throughout the day and the amenities are top notch. The location is ideal for the French Quarter and Marigny, really it is convenient to the whole town as it is located near bus service and the street car. A little walking might be in store to some locations, but its good to work off all the good food and drink! I had a rental car and was able to park in front of the house every day of the 30 I stayed. The linens are lovely and very clean. The kitchen is stocked with new dishes and cookware. There is a sweet, brand new laundry set up as well. Dave was the icing on the cake! He is a hardworking, patient, charismatic darling! He took care of all my needs very quickly. There was never an unanswered text or phone call. He ensured that I was well versed on the town as well. I got a locals guide straight from him! He is very particular about his guests and we had an in depth conversation before I rented to ensure I was the kind of person he wanted in his property. This is in a neighborhood and each resident expects respect of their personal privacy and comfort regarding noise and traffic. This is understandable and makes the location even more desirable for safety reasons as well as general warmth in spirit! As a single woman I felt safe and at ease on this 'up and coming' neighborhood street. A few families, lots of young couples and late 20, early 30 kinds of neighbors. I could not say more about this apartment. I will always look back fondly on my time (a whole month) in this apartment. Good memories and good sleep!
