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.

Absolutely PERFECT New Orleans Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful family vacation at this fabulous home. Sabin's house is the quintessential New Orleans home and has absolutely everything you need to make your weekend/week/month vacation perfect. The location is ideal, you can walk to some of the best restaurants, shops, bars and sites in Nola. Magazine street is so close and has a million different things to offer. St. Charles is just a couple blocks away which is where the streetcar is located and more shops, restaurants, etc. there is a great park and playground 500 feet from the house which is perfect for those with kids or pets. The house is beautiful, so clean, well stocked and really spacious. The best part was the amazing courtyard with banana and orange trees. Our girls (4 & 8) loved the trip And house more than Disney World. Between the zoo (and new waterpark), city park, story land, Mardi Gras World, the streetcar rides, French quarter trips and ferry to Algiers we didn't stop. We got to play house for 4 days in the Lower Garden district and we can't wait to come back. Sabin is the most wonderful, helpful responsive owner. Every email, text, call was answered quickly and thoughtfully. You can tell how much love is put into this house and it really makes a difference for us "renters". We felt 100% safe and recommend it 100000%! We were all sad to leave but can't wait to return. Sabin, thank you for everything! The memories will last forever!!

Not soundproof

  • 3 of 5

Owner was very responsive and helpful for what to do while in NOLA. Good example of the shotgun house. We were doing ok with the property until the last night when someone moved into the adjacent unit. It felt like we were sharing our apt with strangers -- you could hear and understand everything. Other than that, it was ok. We left our bags downstairs near the bathroom rather than take them up the steep narrow stairways but that was ok. We recommend that if you have a car, drive to st Charles and park on a side street to catch the streetcar. The walk is really long when you're tired from a long tourist day!

Owner's Response: I am not even sure I know what to say. I am so sorry that things weren't as nice as they could have been for you, because I do my very best to keep in touch with folks to make sure that folks' stay is as pleasant as possible. I certainly wish you had let me know that there was some sort of problem while you were still there. We did communicate by text on your second day there, and you told me that everything was fine. At any rate, I hope that, should you come back to New Orleans, that things go better for you. By the way, just to clarify, the bedrooms are upstairs here, while the two parlors, dining room, office, kitchen, and bathroom, are downstairs. Consequently, it is a shotgun with a camelback (upstairs). There is no need to go through any bedrooms in order to get to other parts of the house, as a traditional shotgun would require.

nice house in New Orleans

This house on Annunciation Street was very comfortable, and accurately described. The owner has done a great job of keeping the house up, and helping us feel welcome.

Séjour merveilleux à New-Orleans

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné à cet endroit pendant une semaine et nous avons été ravis de nos vacances! Nous étions 2 couples dans cette maison et Tout était parfait, la maison est confortable, propre, bien équipée et vaste, elle est bien située par rapport aux différents attraits de cette région. Nous allions à pied (environ 20 minutes) dans le French Quarter et étions tout près de Magazine Street, des cafés, restos et boutiques.

Que du positif!

Family of Five from Texas

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Perfect location not far from the French Quarter, in a neighborhood with real character. Very spacious and allowed plenty of room for my wife and me and our three kids under 10. We would strongly recommend the house to others considering New Orleans.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed yourselves, see that the house is good for a real family, including children, and recognize that the location is special. Just for the record, we are also within walking distance of the shops on Magazine Street, the Streetcar on St. Charles, and the convention center. We love being close to everything, and being able to get around with ease, whether by foot, cab, bike, or personal car. Thank you again!
