About Corinna

We listed our first unit on HomeAway for Mardi Gras 2012 and have been enjoying our guests ever since. We live on the premises and take delight in sharing gems of the neighborhood and the city with our guests. It has been such a pleasure to meet so many lovely people!

Corinna purchased this apartment in 2011

What makes this apartment unique

Our home is an historic shotgun camelback double built in 1861. Somewhere down the line it was converted into a 4 plex but it still retains many of the architectural flourishes that make New Orleans homes so charming. We love this old house and have been slowly renovating it. The neighborhood is perfect for us; we're a block from the streetcar, walking distance to so much and our neighbors are wonderful. We enjoy this property immensely and intend to live here for a very long time.

Corinna and Michele's charming garden district apartment is exactly as it states; charming! We just spent 2 nights and 3 days in this lovely apartment and had the best time. There were 4 adults and one very tall teenager in the space and we had plenty of room. The apartment is spacious, in a great location and very clean! Corinna and Michele were accommodating, and very friendly! They met us at the front door and took us through the place before leaving us. These guys have thought of everything; the apartment has everything you'd need during your stay, soap, coffee, shampoo, and lots of guidebooks of the area. I can't say enough about how great this place is and we will definitely be using it every time we visit NOLA! Thanks again to Corinna and Michele for really helping make our family feel comfortable and welcome. We'll see you both on our next visit :)

FANTASTIC!!!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place! Very clean and comfortable, and included every amenity possible! To top it all off, Corinna, the owner, was incredibly nice and helpful and even recommended fantastic places to see and eat.
It was a perfect weekend for us, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Great Apt, Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5
A couple of friends and I came to NOLA for Jazzfest. Although the owners (who live next door) were out of town when we arrived, they arranged for someone to meet us and we got in without a hitch.

The apt is about a block and a half north of St Charles and the trolley line so getting around town without a car was no problem. Be aware, the St Charles line is under repair. When you take the trolley from the quarter, it will stop and you will have to hop a bus to get to the apartment. If you keep going west, theres a point where you have to get off the bus and back on a trolley. The quarter and the Oak St area are both just a few minutes away.

As for the apt itself, it was comfortable, the AC worked great, was clean, quiet and even had a little private courtyard. The only issues are the front exterior is a little rough and the shower water pressure is lacking. The shower head is actually on the opposite end from the water controls (never seen that before, probably why the pressure escapes).

I would definitely stay there again in a heartbeat and I'd like to thank the owners for waving the no pets policy for my buddy's guide dog.

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5
From the second we landed in New Orleans we were welcomed and appreciated by everyone we met! I have never been somewhere yet where the people are so genuinely kind, and caring for your well-being. The taxi from the airport was super nice to us and basically all taxi rides were $10 a person, so I'm glad we didn't rent a car. Renting a car is definitely not recommended, it's quicker to get to places by trolly which is only $3 for a day pass! We were able to do tons of stuff all by using my phone GPS, and taking the trolly.

When we arrived at the house we were greeted and escorted into our apartment. We went with another couple and there was more than enough room. The air conditioner was on ( thank god) because it was super humid and the house was ALWAYS comfortable. The apartment has everything you could need from shampoo to a coffee maker! There were two bedrooms, that I thought were perfect and I'm super picky! I check room for bugs and dirt All the time and I must say it was SUPER DUPER clean! My husband wasn't a huge fan of the bed, but I thought it was fine!

All in all I loved our stay! We were always in contact with the owners, and they livebright there should you need them! At one point we even texted them a cab number, and or course they answered us right away :) The location was great, your right down the block from the trolly, and you could walk to tons of local bars or places eat! If we ever go back I would totally stay here again! This was one of the BEST places I've visited and I will never forget the kindness and hospitality shown by all!

Clean, Comfortable, Great Location

  • 4 of 5
I recently stayed here with my husband and some friends. This was our second time renting this property. During each visit, the apartment has been clean and comfortable. The owner provides excellent customer service. The location is perfect - a block and a half to the street car line to travel almost any where in the city and the apartment is in walking distance to several bars and excellent restaurants. We look forward to staying here again in the future and would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.

Adorable! Super cute, comfy and spacious.

  • 4 of 5
The owner was pleasant to work with. The location was within walking distance of restaurants and shops. The property was adorable and easy to relax in. Five of us fit there more than comfortably. There were several times when we found ourselves back at the house, just for some relaxation and down time. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the place and how happy my friends were that I'd found it!
