Live like a local New Orleanian, soaking in the tropical atmosphere of the Old South at this spacious and accommodating abode.

Included are fabulous makeovers in the new kitchen with granite countertops, bedrooms, and baths...renovated to perfection!

Beautiful pine floors, original to the house have been redone and glisten.

As a native of New Orleans, I enjoy preserving the beautiful homes and architecture of the city and after Katrina, this Victorian enjoyed a facelift.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

The location and home is so charming that I think others would find the same passion for the home. Because of its location, you can try a broad range of ethnic and cultural restaurants which are either Zagat rated or have been around for generations. There's live music venues such as Tipitina's, a French bakery, four grocery stores (i.e. Rouse's and Whole Foods) in the area and fun things to do all within walking distance. Walking distance: Mona's, Baru: Petite Grocery, Lilette; Theo's pizza; Nirvana; Casamento's; Savvy Gourmet Restaurant; Superior Grill; Canon's; Magazine Perks; Le Bon Temps Roule; Ms. Mae's; world renown Tipitina's; eclectic shops on Magazine St. Very close (longer walk or short drive): Dick and Jenny's; La Crepe Nanou, Frankie's and Johnny's; Column's Hotel; Commander's Palace; Kyoto; Upperline Restaurant, Cafe Rani, August Moon; Mahoney's Po Boy Shop; Delachaise; Canon's Restaurants; Nacho Mama's; Reginelli's Pizzaria; Byblos; Prytania Theatre; cemetaries, Garden District walking tours, Whole Foods and Rouse's. Streetcar ride: French Quarter, Convention center, Superdome, New Orleans Arena, Downtown, Audabon Park and Zoo, The River Walk, New Orleans Center, Train station, countless restaurants and shops.

The majestic oaks that cool the front balcony overlooking Napoleon Avenue; great for morning coffee and evening glass of wine or to watch those colorful parades.

A great apartment in a great location. The unit was charming, nicely appointed and very clean. Great for families visiting students at Tulane or Loyola. Close to all kinds of great Garden District eating and shopping as well as allowing for easy acces to other areas including City Park and the French Quarter. Lots of parking but also only two block to the St. Charles Street Car. I hope to stay here again.

New Orleans Perfection

We could not have been happier with our stay at the Napolean. The house was perfect for our family gathering in May. The balcony is a New Orleans classic, surrounded by the the magnificent oak tree our front draped in Mardi Gras beads from parades past. The kitchen was fully equipped and the beds comfortable. The unit was exceptionally clean and well maintained and access to the streetcar or restaurants and shops on Magazine Street are within short walking distance. We highly recommend this location as well as the owners for a complete Crescent City experience.
