A moderate-sized back yard with a nice back patio, a pergola with outside dining table, and an upper balcony - a very quiet neighborhood at night. This large house has four queen-sized beds and one full-sized bed that can sleep 2 per bed, limited to 10 guests by the City Ordinance.

You have access to the complete unit, 5 bedrooms, a full kitchen and 2 bathrooms. The property has a keyless door entry. We will send you the code the night before or morning of your arrival. If we are unable to greet you at the property, please use the keyless entry to let yourself in and make yourself at home. When entering, press the 4-digit code we will give to you before arrival. You will hear the motor engage, you have 5 seconds to unlock the deadbolt. Turn lock knob away from the door entrance, you should feel the deadbolt exit the borehole until the lock lever stops. Turn the doorknob and the door should open. When leaving, press the Schlage button or enter the code to engage the locking mechanism and turn the deadbolt. Ensure the deadbolt fully enters the borehole. Sometimes it doesn’t line up perfectly and you may need to jiggle the hand and the door to make it line up correctly. Always test the door to make sure it’s locked by trying to enter the house while turning the doorknob.
I am nearby and available when needed! We do our best to greet guests upon arrival whenever feasible, then your privacy is your own and our interaction thereafter is dependent on your needs. You may see us around maintaining the property which we often do, if you see us around feel free to say hi!

Our house is located in a quiet, single-family home neighborhood about 3 miles from the French Quarter, so you're out of the way of the hustle when it's time to relax. Our street does have a lot of potholes. New Orleans is notorious for its "3rd world roads" and this one is no exception! However this is a very wide street, uncommon in New Orleans, and you can avoid most of the potholes.

TV and Entertainment
AppleTV to access online entertainment. To use the HD antenna, be sure to select TV as the source, and then you can flip through the local channels. For AppleTV, be sure to select HDMI 1, then you should see the main AppleTV menu with all the online programs to choose from, i.e. YouTube, Netflix, HBO, etc. If you have a cable subscription, you can access those programs through your provider, if not you can at least still see all their free programming. I have had very few inquiries about the TV as most people come to NOLA for the attractions, food, music, and amazing entertainment!
