When in season, Meyer lemons, Kumquats and Blood oranges abound and will be made available in fruit baskets by the herbs.
I have been living in New Orleans since '98 and can't imagine calling another place home. I love to travel, but the best part of that is knowing I am coming back here. I work as an artist, designer, and avid gardener. I consider my home and gardens one of my best works yet...enjoy!

This property is one of the most beautiful, well curated, intimately decorated rentals I have ever stayed in. Shelley was so helpful and warm. The pictures don't even do this place justice. This is a place I will return to any time I ever come back to New Orleans! Thank you so much for a magical weekend, Shelley!
We stayed on Jena Street with friends for the week of the French Quarter Festival, there were 7 of us total, and this space was absolutely perfect for us. We came and went easily, parking was always available, and we also got to walk and explore the area extensively. Only a few short blocks to the St. Charles Streetcar and then a few more to Magazine Street with great food and shopping. The space is charming, lovely and comfortable inside and out, and so perfectly equipped with supplies, Miranda has thought of everything you might need to not worry about the little stuff and enjoy this amazing city. We cooked breakfasts at the house and spent most of our time in the outdoor garden sitting area. Miranda and Shelley were great and offered many suggestions for not to be missed food and music fun. We would go back in a heart beat, and I wish we were back there right now! Thank you!
We used the main house area and the little apartment. It had all the amenities you would want/need eg. A water cooler (doesn't cool the water, but provides clean, fresh water to drink). You can tell the decorations were well thought out. Coming in the summer, it was great because the air conditioning worked well, and the pool is awesome. The owner (Miranda) lives on the property, but she is super nice and accommodating. She does not like crazy bachelor/ette parties, which I can understand b/c the place is very well kept. It was very easy to cab to French Quarter, etc. from here. Would definitely stay here again (if she keeps it on VRBO:)
We came into town for a wedding and booked Miranda's place because of location and the pool. Her place is gorgeous from top to bottom. We rented both the main house and the guest house for a group of 8 and it worked out perfectly. The outdoor area was fantastic and with the sweltering heat--the pool was a life saver!
Location was perfect for visiting our friends that live off of Magazine. Not necessarily close enough to walk in the heat to shops and restaurants, but only a $6 uber ride and a really cute neighborhood. When we were there (in early June) the construction on St Charles was in full effect, but once its done I imagine it will be easy to get around!
The house itself was in fantastic condition and beautifully decorated. Plenty of space to hang out as a group, or have quiet time separately. My only complaint would be that there was no dining space big enough for our group--besides outdoors--and the mosquitoes were too much to handle for eating outside. The air conditioning in the main house is located in the master suite, and it didn't circulate well to the back bedroom, but other than that it was great. There were plenty of clean towels and toiletries at the house and our hostess was incredibly friendly and helpful. We felt right at home.
One thing to note--the pool is shared and the hours for guests only go until 5pm. If you plan on spending your evenings swimming, you may need to clear it with your hostess first!
Thanks again for having us, it was a great week and we will certainly be back!
My extended family's annual reunion took place in New Orleans over three days. The Jena Street location was very comfortable, very well supplied with both necessities and little extras, very clean and worked well for us. The neighborhood is very accessible, and there are plenty of options for dining or taking out.
The rental was decorated very pleasantly as well. The only minor issue was there are so many items in the main living areas of the units, it's a little hard to find space to put extra luggage, equipment, toys, etc. Two or three less small furniture items would make for more comfortable space.
The owner was very responsive to all my questions prior to arrival, and very helpful while we were there as well. A rare double lot property with plenty of amenetiies in New Orleans.
Great place for our sister reunion! Miranda provides a comfortable home setting with privacy, and all the extra little things that make you feel at home. We enjoyed coffee on the patio by the pool, and gathering in living room for late night gab fests. Her home is located in quiet neighborhood, with good access to public transport. (Note: St. Charles Avenue trolley is under repair in this area, but you can use bus provided to link to trolley stop at Napoleon Avenue.)
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
Located in the heart of Uptown in a quiet neighborhood near Napoleon and St. Charles, this stylish Victorian shotgun nestled into lush gardens is the perfect place to base your New Orleans vacation.

The residential neighborhood is filled with architectural gems. Whether they be grand mansions on oak lined avenues, or picturesque Victorian shotguns and bungalows, you'll be sure to enjoy an excellent array of all the varied and admired styles of New Orleans architecture.
The lively Freret Street corridor, featuring some of the city's favorite restaurants and bars, is just a 4 block walk up the street. Even closer you will find small local coffee shops and cafes perfect for breakfast or a light lunch. Grocery stores, pharmacies, and other amenities are all within a mile's distance.
Catch the St. Charles streetcar 4 blocks from the house and enjoy a picturesque ride down to the French Quarter, or head in the opposite direction to explore Audubon Park and Zoo, Loyola and Tulane. Even further along you’ll find stunning views of the Mississippi River along the length of the levee in the charming Riverbend neighborhood.
Shopping and dining on Magazine Street is an easy 12 block walk from the house. With six miles of shops, bars, and restaurants, all the way from the CBD up to Audubon Park, there surely something for everyone.
If in town for a convention, the Ernest Morial Convention Center is 2.5 miles away and just a short walk from one of the streetcar stops. The Mercedes-Benz Superdome and Smoothie King Arena are 2.5 miles away as well.
