Colors: Fun!

Parking: Always easy!

Bedrooms: 2 (But Sleeps up to Six in the 1800 SF of Space)!

Baths: 1 Wonderful New Orleans Claw-footed Tub with shower.

Need a Smaller Place?: See 'A Little Annunciation'

Need them both? Let me know!

(Please also see my waterfront home in Fairhope, AL. It is VRBO listing number 170332. A good place for folks from New Orleans to go be on the water.)

This wonderful, huge apartment with double parlors, your own private entrance, and shared courtyard (with fountain) in an 1889 Eastlake Victorian House is your gateway to the heart of one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities in the world.

In the Lower Garden District historical section of New Orleans, this house is just two blocks from satisfying your craving for antiques of the finest kind, the best roasted coffee, food at some of the most amazing restaurants, and booze at an incredibly eclectic collection of bars on Magazine Street.

It is just three blocks from the Convention Center (if you, unfortunately, have to work), and Mardi Gras World, where you can see how that party started, and where many of the parades start during Mardi Gras itself. As a matter of fact, between Mardi Gras World and St. Charles Street, 30... Yes... THIRTY parades go within six blocks of this house (but not right in front of the house). That's good, see? You won't find anybody sleeping it off on your porch in the morning.

Speaking of St. Charles Street, a six-block walk, past some of the most beautiful and elegant houses, between Magazine and St. Charles, gets you to the streetcar. The closest stop is St. Charles at Felicity. $1.25 (exact change please) gets you a ride on the best way to travel in the U.S.A.!

You say you want to party... Hmm... No problem. Just remember that this is a residential neighborhood, and we like our neighbors, so the major partying will be done out in the city. If Magazine Street and its pleasures are too sedate for you, head down Annunciation Street toward the Warehouse District, CBD, and the French Quarter. a 10-minute walk gets you to The Rusty Nail, Bellocq, Ugly Dog Saloon, Dino's, The Circle Bar, Republic New Orleans, and on and on...

Feeling more thoughtful... The wonderful National WWII Museum, one of the most popular attractions in New Orleans, is a ten-minute walk away as well, and is great for kids, too. The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and the Confederate Memorial Hall Museum are right next door. By the way, if all the walking starts to bother you, and you have taken full advantage of the streetcar, a phone call will get a cab to the house in 5 minutes.

Food... Well, what can I say? Cochon, Annunciation, Eleven 79, Mayas Nuevo Latino, HiVolt, and Half Moon are some of our favorite places within short walking distance. there is no limit to where you can eat, and we will be happy to give you a list, suggestions, and so forth.

To sum up, in terms of location, you have it all right here at your fingertips! Enjoy!

About Sabin Bokus

After traveling a great deal, this native of Mobile (whose mother was a true Beatnik who lived on Royal Street in the Quarter in the early sixties), and his wife, a true Frenchie, bought this house as a way to recapture and exercise their love for the Deep South, France, and urban living, all in one fell swoop.

Sabin Bokus purchased this house in 2013

Why Sabin Bokus chose Lower Garden District

This property represents the charm, architecture, history, romance, color, and vibrant nature of New Orleans, and is so well-located, that it allows one to have the best of all worlds: easy access to work and business, tons of urban fun, and quiet residential repose at the end of the day.

What makes this house unique

The pocket doors, original floors and molding, expansive porch, and exterior Eastlake Victorian woodwork all allow you to feel like you have been a part of the city for generations, even if you are new to town.

Perfect Hub for a NOLA getaway

  • 5 of 5
This house exceeded our expectations for our guys weekend in New Orleans. The location was great. It allows you to experience a neighborhood outside the French Quarter while being a short walk to it. The house was a really cool shotgun style home that has been updated and is well appointed. Very clean with anything you would need. The owner gave us a nice packet with all the details of the house, as well as things to do around the city. It was great for when you need a little downtime. Still felt like you're in NOLA and not some generic hotel room. The next time a group of us come to NOLA, I will book here.

Owner's Response: Aha! Thank you for your review!

One thing, though: this apartment is not a shotgun. The bedrooms are upstairs. Consequently, there is no walking through sleeping areas in order to get to the kitchen or the bathroom (that is part of the definition of a shotgun). By the way, folks, for those of you who have not yet stayed here, this apartment has two bedrooms upstairs in what is called a "Camelback", about 1700 ft.² of space, a double parlor, dining room, office, full blown kitchen, and a 1200 square-foot courtyard, all for you! Take a look at the floor plan on the web-site.

Look forward to you guys coming back at some point.
Thank you again!

Owner's Response: Yes, indeed! We do love that fountain and the tropical feel! Let's hope for no freezes this coming winter. New Orleans occasionally has one or two. Those bananas get ripe around January, by the way!

Thank you again for your stay!

Everything about this property from the house itself to the owner was fantastic!

The house is just far enough away from the French Quarter to be peaceful but close enough to live the lifestyle!

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5
Such a beautiful home and incredibly generous hosts. Came down for a long weekend with my boyfriend and another couple and the home was beautiful. The location perfect for wandering over to central part of the Garden District or catching a quick cab ride over to the French Quarter. There are also some great food spots close by and a great porch to relax on. Sabin and his family were incredibly welcoming and had fantastic advice on where to eat and what to see on our trip. We're going to try to make it an annual tradition.

Tulane graduation rental

  • 5 of 5
We rented both sides of "Annunciation" for Tulane graduation weekend. It was the perfect location for campus, the super dome, french quarter and even magazine street. The large side easily accommodated our group for meals and gatherings and having both sides was great for sleeping and down time. Sabin was great to work with and very quick to respond to questions. I would definitely stay here again!!

Thank you again.

See you next time!
