Central City/Garden District Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 and 1/2 blocks from the Garden District streetcar stop

Enjoy the charm of New Orleans living in an historic Victorian Camelback, built in 1861.

Close to everything; walk 3 blocks to world famous Commanders Palace, stroll down oak and mansion lined St. Charles Ave, go antiquing on Magazine St, ride the St. Charles Streetcar down to the French Quarter or up to the Universities and Audubon Park, visit the WWII Museum, and dine at any of the myriad of restaurants that make New Orleans a foodie paradise.

This lovely one bedroom, 1 bath apartment is perfect for a romantic getaway. Enormous pocket doors, high ceilings and a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the porch are just a few of the architectural details to delight the eye. The newly renovated kitchen is ready for those nights you want to stay in. The living room is large and comfortable with satellite TV, WiFi and a sofa bed. The bedroom has a super comfy memory foam queen size bed. Bathroom access is through the bedroom so it is more suited for a couple or a small family. The apartment sleeps up to 3 adults. High quality linens and towels are provided.

What makes this apartment unique

Our home is an historic shotgun camelback double built in 1861. Somewhere down the line it was converted into a 4 plex but it still retains many of the architectural flourishes that make New Orleans homes so charming. We love this old house and have been slowly renovating it. The neighborhood is perfect for us; we're a block from the streetcar, walking distance to so much, and our neighbors are wonderful. We enjoy this property immensely and intend to live here for a very long time.

Cute place with an unbeatable location.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to enjoy the city of New Orleans from. The apartment itself is super cute, and has been updated just enough to keep its time earned charm, but allows for easy meal prep and a comfortable stay. It oozes charm.

The location is unbeatable in my mind. A very short walk to St. Charles and all its restaurants and the historic street car. The central location worked very well for my family, and was the catalyst for a wonderful few days. The owners are very responsive and helpful. Honestly, I can't say enough good things, and we're looking forward to staying there again when we launch our next New Orleans adventure.

Wonderful hospitality and location!

  • 5 of 5

Corinna and Michele welcomed us to New Orleans, and checked in once to see if everything was ok. The place was immaculate, had an italian flare, and was extremely comfortable and clean. The sheets were even pressed! The bed was extremely comfortable, and the bathroom is adorable. The location was 1/2 block walk to the street car, and was extremely convenient to the French Quarter (20-30 min on streetcar) or to Tulane U the other direction. We also walked down Washington to Magazine St and ate, toured the Lafayette Cemetery. Lastly, they were very flexible with our flight times and checking in and we so appreciated that. I highly recommend Camelback Guesthouse!

The Camelback Guesthouse was fantastic! A perfect location, full of charm and character!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time in this adorable home. We especially liked the close proximity to the trolley cars as well as fantastic restaurants and amazing architecture. Corinna and her husband were very helpful and gave us great advice on what to see and do. We highly recommend this home away from home!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property in August 2015 as my daughter was starting a study abroad year at Loyola University and just loved it them so it was a natural choice for when I returned with my husband to meet up with our daughter as she finished. The apartment is really lovely inside and it's clear that a labour of love has been applied to the property to ensure that the decor is in keeping with the property and it's history. The apartment is well furnished and spotlessly clean. the hosts, Corinna and Michele are just two great people, and always helpful if you need anything. In addition, it is just a few minutes walk from the St Charles streetcar so it's an ideal location for exploring New Orleans. Nearby are a selection of restaurants offering a range of food; a short walk (or ride) is the Fresh Market which has lovely food for self-catering. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough and it's hosts, and it is a given that we will be returning as soon as we can.

Great alternative to staying at a chain hotel in New Orleans!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this historic "camelback shotgun double" was excellent. And so were the hosts: Corinna and her husband Michele (he's originally from Venice, Italy and his name is pronounced Me-kel-eh.) Upon our arrival they warmly greeted us, oriented us to the condo, and offered many helpful suggestions regarding New Orleans.​

The condo is located a mere 2 blocks from St. Charles Avenue, offering close proximity to the Garden District and a short walk to street cars. While walking in the opposite direction brings with it some residences that can use some improvements, the overall sense of safety is very good. The condo itself is obviously much more charming than a chain hotel experience, and is equipped, comfortable, and perfect for a couple. If you have any questions or concerns, the hosts live in their own apartment as part of this camelback, and they are easily reached by phone or texting. This is a great rental unit to be part of anyone's unique NOLA experience.
