About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath

Recent New Orleans Short-term rental ordinance changes requires that this listing be shown as a 1 bedroom with 2 people in each room. Prior to the ordinance change, this unit was set up to sleep 5 and is still capable of doing so.

Relax on the brick courtyard under stately oaks in Uptown New Orleans; just blocks to St. Charles and Magazine Streets. Live like a local New Orleanian, soaking in the tropical atmosphere of the Old South at this spacious and accommodating abode. This charming 1880s home, once owned by a Senator has been charmingly renovated in 2008 and 2009. Included are fabulous makeovers in the new kitchen with granite counter tops, bedrooms, and baths...renovated to perfection!

Beautiful pine floors, original to the house glisten. This stately home features original cast iron fencing and a gate, an old St. Louis brick pathway to the courtyard, stained glass up the stairwell, high ceilings, ceiling fans, a fireplace, transoms, and with all the fine amenities to make your stay enjoyable and memorable.

This home is surrounded by the ole New Orleans charm with streetcars just two blocks away that will take you to many destinations throughout the city including the French Quarter, Superdome, Canal Street, Lower Garden District, Central Business District, City Park, Audubon Zoo, and historical cemeteries. The streetcar would be a great choice to take you to the historic universities Loyola, Tulane, and Xavier.

Why Mary Jean Davies chose Touro

I love the Uptown area; it's a place where I grew up in the Big Easy. The area has such charm and history that browsing the neighborhoods never gets old and I always find something new each time.

What makes this condo unique

The community rates restaurants each year and all the #1 & #2 chosen for best food is all within walking distance of the Napoleon House. You can find those top restaurants mostly on Magazine Street and some on St. Charles Avenue and Napoleon. Available transportation is either right in front of the house, or at nearby corners which makes getting around so easy. A car is not needed so why fight for parking and possibly end up getting a ticket. Take the streetcar, enjoy the view and let your cares fade away.

comfortable, serene NOLA flat

  • 4 of 5

While I had the misfortune to be both unexpectedly solo and caught in a huge deluge during my NOLA weekend, I found Napoleon Street to be a cozy haven and convenient location for my too brief visit. While the place was very clean and as described in the listing, I did find the layout a bit quirky and dark - even when the sun did come out. It is a fine place for sleeping, but not one I would really want to hang out a lot on a nice day: the balcony is too narrow and faces a not particularly fetching side of the neighbors. Like many AirBnBs, this is not a place that is actually lived in, so has that slightly "canned" feel of not-a-home; the decor is rather rote (football - really??) and doesn't exactly feel like the idiosynchratic city. I was also a bit frustrated by the lack of ANYTHING in the kitchen - one could not really cook there without a major investment (not that I intended to do so) - but all that greeted me was salt/pepper/and some apparently airline pretzels. One could feel more welcomed in a motel room. But Liz was lovely when we ran into each other before I left, and it all went smoothly.

Owner's Response: Robert, I'm glad you found your flat to be a cozy haven and its location convenient. Upon a late arrival, the unit wouldn't be as light especially with some of the curtains drawn; however, I'm sure that when you open some of the blinds, you'll see these very large windows in the foyer, kitchen and living room. This unit can actually get quite bright so black out curtains are installed so people can sleep. Yes, there is a small balcony right outside of the kitchen; however, there is a nice brick courtyard right behind the unit. It's a nice place to sit and contemplate over coffee or a glass of wine. There's even a front porch where chairs are present and you can sit and look out over the Avenue. It's understandable that guests are going to have different tastes. Note though that the picture mentioned is part of the city; it's of the Sugar Bowl which is hosted in New Orleans. It's a fairly expensive picture at that so I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. As for the kitchen, there are many items such as plates, bowls, glasses, strainer, coffee cups, pitchers, pots and frying pans of assorted sizes, utensils, cooking utensils, pot holders, blender, toaster oven, coffee pot, can opener, measuring cups, ice cream scoop, pizza cutter, baking pans, and other items. Food is not provided for safety reasons and that is stated on the website. All in all, it was a pleasure to meet you and I'm glad you felt that all went smoothly. That is my aim and hope you will come back to experience NOLA again.

Amenities are good at this location, but the bed needs to be updated.

Owner's Response: That's wonderful that you found the amenities to be good at the Napoleon. As for the bed, people certainly do have different styles and tastes and that is why pictures are shown on the website. As for the bed, it is a solid wood sleigh bed with stylistic curves which was recently purchased. The mattress is a pillowtop which to many may seem very comfortable and one that I would enjoy sleeping in. The sheets and pillowcases are a nice, white cotton to keep guests cool and comfortable. The bedspread and pillows are from Croscill which is made by a high quality company. The decorative accent pillows have either engraving or a high pattern which are both of high quality.
