Located in a rehabilitated warehouse built in 1919 as an annex to the iconic D.H. Holmes Department Store (home of Ignatius Reilly of 'confederacy of dunces' fame), the building retains the architectural and historic elements of the old building, including balconies and courtyards. Flooded with natural light from the glass ceilings, the soaring open spaces of the converted condominiums create an inviting and serene environment to escape the frenzy of the french quarter. It's a great home base for your adventures on the streets and a lovely quiet retreat when you're ready for rest!
This one-bedroom condo has exposed brick walls, 20 ft ceilings, and concrete beams and struts that support the old warehouse. With a queen bed, a sofa, a daybed with a pop-up trundle, and a roll-away bed, the condo sleeps 4-6 easily. It also includes a full kitchen equipped with all necessities, washer/dryer, full bath, and walk-in closet. Free wif-fi is also included. There is also a pool on site situated high above the street level with a view of french quarter rooftops. There is even an outside patio area to sit and enjoy your cocktails and listen to the live music rising up from the beat of bourbon street.
Other unique amenities include bicycles for easy traveling around the quarter, concierge services for arranging tours, massages, setting a supply of groceries in for your arrival, and other special touches you might desire.
So come on down and discover the sights and sounds of the most unique city in the world -- the city that care forgot, the home of jazz music, the big easy!
I am a New Orleans native and grew up in the French Quarter. Over the years I have seen many changes in my hometown, the most horrific being Hurricane Katrina. Our home was destroyed, but we built it higher and stronger because we knew we would never leave this wonderful place we call home -- the place where we were born, and our ancestors and our children and their children, and where we will always live, no matter what challenges we face.
New Orleans is more than its streets and houses -- it is the people who make this city so special. They make the music, cook the Creole food, build the houses, celebrate at Carnival, and bring a wonderful joie de vivre to everything in life. My husband Jeff, who is an accomplished blues musician and leader of a successful blues band on Bourbon Street, is as excited as I am to share this beloved city with our guests and hope you will visit us in the French Quarter, or 'da Quarters' as we used to call it. Yeah You Right ... laissez les bons temps rouler!'
Located in the heart of the French Quarter, one block from Bourbon Street, one block from Canal Street, five blocks from the Mississippi River, walking distance to Frenchmen Street ... you couldn't be any closer to the action than this charming apartment.
