Central City 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 lovingly restored one bedroom, one 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 beautiful new kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal, if you ever get tired of dining out. 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 and a black-out roman shade for the mornings you want to sleep in. 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.

About Corinna

We listed our first apartment on HomeAway for Mardi Gras 2012 and have been enjoying our guests ever since.

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 restoring it to its original beauty. 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.

Great apartment, great location, great hosts...

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. Loved the location. Easy to walk down to Magazine for food and shopping or central for driving to various parts of the city. Corinna was very helpful. Met us at our car when we arrived and printed our boarding passes. Nice apartment with all the basics and a heavenly mattress. My husband and I both have back issues but no complaints. In fact, might look into getting one. Will be back. YYR.

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!
