About Carrie

I have several properties that are vacation rentals- several here, in Austin and Wimberley TX. I am a former Realtor- I love this business. I remodel older homes for a living--restoring homes is very important to me; there are plenty here in New Orleans.

Carrie purchased this house in 2008

A real New Orleans stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've stayed at this property: the first time I stayed downstairs in the Gypsy House (with a giant crawfish marking the front door), the second time in the Penthouse with a Spanish-style balcony overlooking the eerie church (now a theater/event space) next door. Carrie is a great hostess and, although the house is over 100 years old and quirky, she's added all the right touches. I am totally comfortable in these places. It's also convenient to great restaurants and bars. One of my favorites.

Open Concet Penthouse that is walkable to French Quarter

  • 5 of 5

Carrie has made a great penthouse apartment in Bywater. We never had a problem parking our large SUV right in front of the building. The area is quiet. Trains do come through at night but after the first night they don't keep you up. The loft does not hear them as much.

The penthouse is open concept with plenty of seating on two sofas and two dining tables. There is a filtered Brita Water pitcher in the fridge. We did go out on the balcony once. It is a great view. Only the loft has total privacy with AC, but with three of us over 6'0" we could not stand up in the bathroom. It was very doable for our tweens. There is lots of clothes hanging piping with provided hangers as well as dressers in both bedrooms. The beds are soft and comfortable. The lines were better than most hotels. If you read Carrie's information sheets you should have no frustrations. Print it out and Read It before you arrive. The property manager lives next door. He notified us when we left a window down on our vehicle. He is very kind.

We walked with our kids to and from the French Quarter day and night (after 11:00pm). Walk past the church to Royal. That takes you to Frenchman Street which has great music. Snug Harbor and The Maison are venues for our tweens and teenagers to enjoy. There is a brass band nightly in the street at Dat Dog. Frenchman Street takes you to the French Quarter. It is maybe a 15 min walk from the property. Cake Cafe Bakery on Chartres is great for breakfast.

Overall, I would recommend this space to stay while in NOLA. It is not a scary area. Be friendly and kind as if you were in your own neighborhood. They will be friendly and kind in return.

Home away!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing apartment that really feels like a home away from home. The neighborhood is both quiet and happening, with lots of great restaurants, stores and shops. The apartment and the neighborhood are so charming, and we simply loved our time here. You can easily walk to the French Quarter or have a night in and enjoy the epic balcony. The property manager and care taker are extremely kind and responsive, and the place is clean and has excellent amenities. Highly recommended!!

Quiet and Funky

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 12 days (spring break) with my two teenage sons. The neighborhood is very quiet. Mardi Gras Zone is the only supermarket, but it's open 24 hours. Mostly things like powdered gravy mixes and processed food. But they do get the NYTimes each morning. The only noise was trains in the night which added atmosphere. It was less pleasant when the downstairs was occupied on our last day: intrusive voices, etc.

There are some great local spots in Bywater. There is an espresso bar that has great coffee beans and there is Jack Dempsey's Po' Boy joint (fried food). No tourists in there and great food. Also Elizabeths for great food.

You're a short walk from the French Quarter and you easily walk/take taxis the whole time.

There is a great High Line-like park on the water in ByWater. Don't miss this!

The space is very cool though there is little privacy. The upstairs room is windowless and a little like an isolation tank. The kitchen needs a collander and a cheese grater but is otherwise nicely equipped.

There is a church across the street that features weddings each Saturday. They are fun to watch.

There is a guy who plays a little organ about 5 blocks away. It's so quiet you can make out the songs.

Overall: very nice to be out of French Quarter and in a cool neighborhood.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! We came with 4 people and had a blast in NOLA. There's even a book people have been writing in about their New Orleans adventures. I will say the upstairs was a little difficult for me to navigate (I'm 6'1") but my girlfriend had to problem standing up fully. I have no complaints about this place. I would recommend this to anyone with a group. The price point and size are a steal!

Awesome House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came down to NOLA for 311 Day 2016. We had an amazing time! The house is great, high ceilings and a lot of space. The beds are comfortable and the decor is cool. Sweet balcony to chill on and view the creepy church across the street. You could take a cab to save time but we walked almost every where. French Market, Bourbon and Frenchman Street are all walkable and the neighborhood had a lot of cool restaurants. We'll Def be back for 311 Day 2018!

Faubourg Marigny is a wonderful eclectic historical neighborhood located only 10 blks from the French Quarter. This area is set up to be able to walk or ride a bike to many restaurants, grocery, and bars. It has a lovely European feel to it. Yoga studio is 2 blks away, fun vintage shops a few blks away......Frenchman St. is my favorite area to listen to live music- 8 blks away.

Other Activities: French Quarter shopping, cemetery tour, swamp tour, plantation tour
