Our location for Mardi Gras and Jazzfest is IDEAL - the Krewe du Vieux, St. Ann's, and Krewe of Eris, and Muses parades are all just steps from our front door. As well as JazzFest, most evening venues are within walking distance. Bicycling is the best way to travel long distances during Mardi Gras, and there is a shop 2 blocks away that rents bikes.
Completely remodeled Bouligny plantation slave house just 2 blocks off the Mississippi. Open concept, brand new furniture throughout - this is a camelback double-wide so it is a house behind the front house - in the middle of everything but completely private front deck and back patio area. You can hear the trains and boats up and down the river, and the music from Tipitinas famous jazz club is nearby but not loud.
FIRST FLOOR: Kitchen, dining and living areas are all open concept with a private partially covered deck and an open patio.
SECOND FLOOR: 2 Bedrooms, both with brand new beds 1 king and 1 queen, walk-in closet, additional shelving, TV in each room and computer desk in one of the bedrooms. Full bathroom and laundry room are separate and in the middle of the floor with the two bedrooms on each end of the house, both with views of the banana tress and gardens around the area.

Our guests want the experience of living in a real neighborhood, food shopping and cooking, things you can't normally do on vacation.
Location location. This is in the middle of everything but is also a real neighborhood - a supermarket is so close its like living there - one of the best kept secret restaurants is less than a block away, as well as Tipitina's jazzclub, so the location is beyond ideal for Mardi Gras (walking distance but not TOO crazy) and ideal for Jazzfest as most venues are within walking distance. You can walk to anything but its also convenient to drive and park on the street - it is the best of everything.
We have set this up in every way so that the guest comes away with the experience of having LIVED in New Orleans. It is a profoundly unique city and sadly most visitors never make it beyond the French Quarter and miss out on a wealth of beauty and experience. Specifically, the size, condition, and the abundance of TWO private spaces in the heart of the city are virtually unheard of.
