About Wendy Smith

I’m Wendy and this is Graham. We are not only your hosts at The Crescent @ OGH but we live here, too! I am honored and excited that you’re considering or have chosen my home and Guest House for your trip to NOLA. I was born and raised in New Orleans and genuinely love everything about this city… from it’s eclectic culture, cuisine, and history to my amazing neighborhood, neighbors, and small piece of the most unique city in America! I hope you become a regular at OGH. My job is to provide you with a safe, comfortable, and fun environment to stay in. Your job (besides remembering the do’s and don’ts) is to get really excited and prepare to have a great and memorable stay.

Welcome!

Wendy

Why Wendy Smith chose Bayou St John

Orleans Guest House is a beautiful home in a great location that is furnished with very nice details. The SAFETY, the LOCATION, and the STYLE make this a great place to enjoy your stay in NEW Orleans, its that simple!

The larger of the two units at OGH, The Crescent is 1200 sq ft of New Orleans charm, beautiful art, and comfort — two bedrooms, large spa-like tiled bath, cement floors, huge kitchen with quartz counters, private courtyard, fountains, grill, separate entry/exit — total privacy!

PRIVACY and GUEST ACCESS is another plus...

All guests have an independent entry and exit with complete and total privacy. My philosophy regarding interaction with guests is…. I live on site and am available for suggestions on what to see/do and how to get there! Or… I will interact with you only when necessary giving you as much privacy as possible! Either way, this is a wonderful and unique city — “SO MUCH TO DO…SUCH LITTLE DISTANCE!” I know you will enjoy your stay!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Staying in the Crescent unit of the Orleans guest house exceeded expectations. The space is beautiful and comfortable. The location is perfect for those who want to be close to City Park/ know what it is like to stay in a true NOLA neighborhood. Wendy is an amazing host. She was attentive and made us feel welcome from the moment we began exchanging emails about our stay right through the time we sadly had to say goodbye. The unit comfortably fit our party of four. The design of the space is executed so well and all of the furnishings are high end yet comfortable. The outdoor space is a gem and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Wendy even put together a city guide with recommendations that were all spot on. If you want to get a feel for the "real" New Orleans, look no further. We would definitely love to visit again!

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5
I had an exceptional stay at The Crescent during my NOLA visit, and I will return here the next time I am in town, without question. From the minute I walked in, it became apparent that extreme thought and detail had gone into every piece of art, furniture, and decor. It was also impeccably clean with new appliances and great furniture. The bed I slept in was so comfortable that I considered replacing my Stern and Foster at home. On top of everything, I have to say the best part of staying at The Crescent is having Wendy as your host. She is hospitable, kind, and very knowledgable about the area. Wendy goes out of her way to make sure that you have a wonderful experience. This review is coming from someone who has the highest standards for cleanliness and attention to detail. I am certain you will have a wonderful experience staying at this property.

It Doesnt Get Any Better Than This!

  • 5 of 5
The listing description and pictures do not do it justice. The Crescent is filled with beautiful artwork and all the right touches. The property is very clean and maintained. The décor is beautifully contemporary. The owner is incredible. She inquires what your interests are and then provides recommendations for the perfect stay. We had been to NOLA before and had done the touristy stuff. We went for an extended weekend filled with fabulous food, music and art. Wendy made great suggestions. She even provides a professional quality map of the various neighborhoods and her recommendations in each. She puts a lot of effort into making sure her guests are comfortable. Even my OCD husband said, she doesn't miss a detail. Whether it is welcoming you with a beverage, having coffee/tea at your disposal, high quality furnishings, wonderful sheets, bath towels, and amenities... she has it right there for you. She advised us on fabulous restaurants that had great jazz entertainment, excellent brunches, and an art festival. You can even access the trolley from the unit. The outside space is just as decorated as the inside. You will be elated if you stay here. We are already planning our next trip back!

SAFETY...STYLE...and LOCATION!

OGH not only sits in one of the most sought after and popular parts of town, it provides safety and style. This charming guest house is just steps away from the streetcar line, waterfront picnicking, exercise both on and around Bayou St. John, as well as activities throughout City Park. Rent a kayak or canoe and row up Bayou Saint John or go for a short walk to City Park… 7 square miles of historic oaks, 24-hour coffee and beignets, horseback riding, walking/jogging paths, a dog park, amusement park, botanical gardens, NOMA and outdoor sculpture garden, tennis, 4 golf courses, and much much more.

THE CRESCENT

This two-bedroom apartment is 1200 sqare feet of pure New Orleans charm and can sleep 6-7 guests. The Crescent offers one queen BR, one full BR, high quality pillow-top bedding two of the sofas are also full pullouts (with gel-foam toppers), extra large spa-tiled bath, cement floors, beautiful original art, high-end kitchen with full furnishings, large dining room and living room combination, washer and dryer, and a private fenced courtyard landscaped with fountains, fragrant flowers, art and tons of privacy! Its a beautiful space- lots of New Orleans style, comfort, gorgeous detail, and the best location with privacy and, of course, safety!

BAYOU VIEW (Elevated Studio)

Charm, a beautiful view, private covered balcony and sound-system, spa-type tiled bath and beautiful furnishings and art. It’s the smaller of the two units at OGH but big on style and view! (Don't forget to look for Bayou View under a separate listing!)

WHAT TO EXPECT

OGH offers superb amenities with fair and standard rental agreements and rates. Read on… you’ll see.

Some basic differences or qualities between The Crescent and Bayou View are:

*The Crescent is larger (2br/1ba, 1200 sqft)

*Pets are considered at The Crescent only- not Bayou View

*Bayou View is elevated with a deck view

*The Crescent is ground level with a private courtyard

*The Crescent has a full kitchen, while Bayou View has a well-done kitchenette with all the essentials, most stainless steel, including a temp-controlled wine storage and a walk-in closet.

THE CRESCENT (Larger Ground-Level Apt)

Spread out over 1200 sq.ft. of comfort in The Crescent. This larger space has 2 bedrooms, a large tiled bath, beautiful artwork throughout, huge kitchen with quartz countertops, a beautiful combined dining and living space, cement floors throughout, and a peaceful PRIVATE courtyard with fountains flowers and outdoor dining.

(Both offer offstreet parking if you have a car, but you surely don't need one!)

THE CRESCENT @ OGH is CLOSE TO SO MANY OF THE BEST ATTRACTIONS IN NEW ORLEANS!

Walking Distance from OGH:

Walk it. Bike it. Scoot it. Row it. Transportation around OGH is easy and fun! OGH is a special place in the perfect location. Within minutes you can walk to Jazz Fest or a Mardi Gras parade like Endymion, or, even the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA). You can catch the streetcar for an adventure anywhere around New Orleans, dine at some of the best NOLA restaurants, grab fresh produce at farmers’ markets, and more. In City Park alone there’s the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA), a sculpture garden, a golf course and driving range, tennis courts, a dog park, and even 24-hour coffee and beignets.

A short cab ride — business or pleasure!

If the French Quarter is your destination, Downtown, Uptown, Garden District, Warehouse District, Business District, Morial Convention Center Shopping the Riverwalk or leaving dockside on a cruise, its all about a mile-and-a-half cab ride away.

Our historic nearby neighborhoods are fun to bike or rent a scooter. Faubourg Marigny and the Bywater offer daytime activities and festivals, as well as an active nightlife with famous (and “not-so-famous”) restaurants, bars, and music clubs! Whether you prefer tours, or living like a local, the possibilities are endless. Then, to top it off, you get to come home to Orleans Guest House. Stay once, and you will surely become a regular!
