Downtown House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy your New Orleans vacation at Chateau Esplanade. This 1860's home is located in the historic Faubourg St. John neighborhood. The area is safe and very pedestrian friendly with several neighborhood groceries, restaurants, cafes, and other attractions. Area attractions include St. Louis Cemetery, City Park, and the Street Car. The French Quarter is a five minute drive, or if you prefer, a 30 minute walk up Esplanade.

About Allen Lottinger

I live right down the street from this house and I can say without a doubt it is one of the nicest neighborhoods in New Orleans.

Why Allen Lottinger chose Downtown

This house is historic and very large with six oversized bedrooms, each with a queen bed. Having the extra space makes your trip very comfortable and more enjoyable.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wonderful house! A great place to have a little homeaway from home. A wonderful place to celebrate my Daddys 70th birthday. Thanks for all the memories.

Many thanks for a perfect weekend of family-I'm sure we will be back!

Having our entire village in one place for our dad's 70th was amazing and this house worked perfectly! 19 people age 2-76 and everyone was comfortable. We even celebrated with a crawfish boil in the yard! Thanks for the perfect weekend!!

This house is majestic and wonderful- perfect for crazy humans lke us. "Thou are es glorious" and and thou shall not run down the hallway, thy is loud. "Thou ceilings are as high as Bob Marley" this bizarre.

What a fun house!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to NOLA for my 50th birthday. Had friends and family in from all over the country. 12 of us stayed at the house with others in neighboring locations popping in and out. Alan was a wonderful host. Gave us lots of information on places to eat and things to do. The house was awesome - the eclectic charm and personality of the house truly fits the New Orleans style and it met all of our needs for the trip. We had a little trouble with the public transportation, but that was only due to construction in the area. Having a car did come in handy. The guestbook was our favorite thing about the house. We had so much fun reading the stories and the trying to solve the clues others left behind. We would stay there again....and definitely would recommend the house to others, including friends and family .

Great House

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful. It had everything we needed, and Allen was great. He met us at the house, gave us a tour, and was easily accessible with any questions. Allen went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. He emailed a long list of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and grocery stores with our arrival instructions and even provided several groceries. I'd highly recommend this house.

This is a filthy dump

  • 1 of 5

I can't believe that Home Away would let anyone rent this place on their site. It has more fire hazards, filthy rooms, doors that don't open, doors that can't close, dirty linens and furniture, no utensils for eating, only a few plates, no outlets in the bathroom, insulation stuffed into openings in the walls and floors and doors, hair and dirt balls on the bathroom floor, table that hadn't been cleaned and took three cleanings to get the black dirt off o them, light bulbs missing in almost every room, temporary paper blinds for window coverings, an abandoned old car in the back yard--and believe me there is even more. We had to immediately go out and buy our own sleeping bags to put on the beds in order to stay one night before getting out in the morning and finding another place to stay. Now he is refusing to take our calls or return our money. Shame on all who were part of this scam.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home base for our trip to New Orleans. The house is huge and very comfortably accommodates a large group. Centrally located in a beautiful, tree lined neighborhood. Comfortable beds, big porch for sitting, and great, large living room. Allen, the owner, was a huge help and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. Highly recommend.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

As this was my first experience using the website, I was pretty wary about the place looking like the photos. Chateau Esplanade was excellent! The house and the rooms were much bigger than they looked in the photos. The house was clean and well cared for. The location was awesome and we had an amazing time and will definitely rent this property again. Lisa and Allen were awesome! They answered our questions and were available by phone when needed. There were plenty of restaurants and cafe's nearby and was close to the French Quarter. Would highly recommend Chateau Esplanade. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
