|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
This truly stunning unit is the entire downstairs apartment of this centrally located home in an excellent neighborhood and is truly the perfect spot for Jazz Fest, getting to the French Quarter, the Museum of Art, Cafe Degas and many other great attractions in the city. The fairgrounds are literally in the backyard and the place is a quick drive over to the French Quarter (keep in mind, it's about 5 minutes driving down Esplanade Ave. but walking there, while very enjoyable, is more like 40 minutes or so). There are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths here, a large kitchen (no stove though), a kitchenette area, 2 living rooms, a reading room and a 'decorative' weight room. This listing is for the entire downstairs, about 2200 square feet with a private, separate entrance from the upstairs.
The owner, Bill, in is an interior designer with his own unique and whimsical style (as the pictures might hint at), and staying here in person is really a unique experience. Bill helped me decorate my house (see VRBO #425650) so I'm returning the favor by helping him rent his downstairs out for some additional income to help maintain this historic Arts and Crafts style home in New Orleans.
Please do be aware though that there is a maximum of 6 people in this downstairs unit, and it is very possible that there will be other guests staying in the upstairs apartment. The two apartments have totally separate entrances so privacy would not be an issue, however you might hear some footsteps and occasional voices from the guests above. We always will ask and do our best to make sure that the guests staying in either space will be respectful of noise for others, especially in the evenings. So far though, we haven't had any issues at all. Here is the link to the upstairs apartment if you are interested: www.vrbo.com/654362
Also, please note that we do not rent out both spaces together to large groups as it can encourage excessive foot traffic throughout the home/ noise in the neighborhood, and it is very important to us that we be respectful to neighbors in the area. I am afraid we cannot make exceptions to this rule.
Thanks so much for your interest and if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to reach out:)
Thank you for looking at my profile! I've become something of a vacation rental veteran now with a few year's experience hosting guests from around the world under my belt. There are always a few exceptions, but overall it has been a truly wonderful experience, one that's allowed me meet some great people and provide an excellent vacation for the many friends and families who have come to stay in this great city.
About me: as an avid traveler myself, I am keenly aware of some of the difficulties of getting a nice place that is as advertised, in a good location, with a host who is dependable and who can help you answer many of the questions involved in trip planning. I can share a lot of my travel experiences as well as my expertise on this great city I grew up in, and as such I have plenty to share if interested. Some of my interests include reading, art, health, cooking and as mentioned, meeting new people.
For a living, I work in real estate but I have done a little of everything from medical interpreting and painting to landscaping and interior design. This all being said, if you have any questions at all about me, about my place or about the great city I live in, please don't hesitate to contact me! I can be reached via messaging or you can call me (preferably before 7PM central time) at 504-457-8028. I'll look forward to hearing from you!
Owner purchased this house in 2005
Beautiful home and very clean! We enjoyed our stay here and will definitely come back. The owner was very nice and responds back quickly. The neighborhood is gorgeous and very convenient to the French Quarter. We used Uber a few nights. Round trip to the French Quarter was about $16.00, which isn't bad at all. Parking in front of the house was never an issue.
Very Artistic and unusual home, but with all the artifacts, it's obviously a very difficult house to clean. If you're allergic to dust, I would pass on this one.
Also, In the future, we would stay closer to the French Qtr. We spent all our money on Ubers and Taxis and it takes 20 minutes to get into the French Qtr not 5 as advertised. The street car was fun, but it took over an hour to ride it all the way down to the river front.
Beautiful park though, right near by, and we loved the neighborhood but we'll stay downtown next time.
This was a wonderful experience for our family. We were givien a welcome packet that gave us everything we needed to know prior to our arrival. We loved the area. Walking distance to restaurants, grocery store and trolley stop. The house is beautiful and we enjoyed all the art that decorated every room. Keep in mind that this is a very old house and some of the plumbing is in need of updating but it didn't take away from the enjoyment of our stay. We felt very much at home. I would highly recommend renting this home and if we ever make it back to New Orleans I will stay here again.
The owners were excellent and made sure I had what I needed. The house is absolutely beautiful. No complaints whatsoever!
This house has it all: a great location, nice neighborhood and responsive owner should a problem arise. We have stayed in the past and will definitely stay in the future. It is expensive and worth it.
This property was extremely fantastic! It was a short cab ride from the hustle and bustle of downtown NOLA. The art and deco put into the home made it a very welcoming environment. The owner was wonderful and very friendly. We were so happy to celebrate a birthday there and ended up being surprised with a proposal in the little reading nook! Thank you for a beautiful place to stay that holds so many wonderful memories!
This great location is one of its top draws - the French Quarter is just seven minutes away by car, and the Street Car, Museum of Art, Sculpture Garden and Botanical Gardens are all just three blocks away. There are also some great bars and cafes within easy walking distance, and on the way, you'll pass some of the stunningly beautiful hundred year-old mansions that this unique city has to offer.
Normally, we have a 3 night minimum, but depending on the month/ situation, can do 2 for a flat fee of $530.
