Overview

About the property

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. Off-street parking is conveniently located across the street.

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.

Best place in NOLA!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 1/2 weeks here in February to enjoy New Orleans and Mardi Gras. We had no idea how wonderful it would be!

First off, we love old houses. Corinna and Michele have beautifully restored this historic 1861 home. It has all the beauty and charm of an old home coupled with all up to date modern and comfortable conveniences. And it even comes with an off-street parking spot.

We loved just being in this home.

Corinna and Michele were wonderful and responsive. They live in one of the 4 units, and are always around if you need any help, but never intrusive. And they are really great people!

The location of the home was perfect for Mardi Gras parade viewing - just a block from the main parade route on St. Charles Street. And when there are no parades, the St. Charles streetcar runs into the city - a fun ride that gets you to the heart of 'downtown' in a few minutes.

NOLA itself is a magical city, like nothing else in this country.

The city, the neighborhood, the house, and the owners all have the highest recommendation we could give. And then add a few more points on top of that.

Perfect place for visiting New Orleans.

  • 5 of 5

This house was spotless, spacious and clearly well cared for by the owners. Corinna and Michele we gracious and open to any requests for help in dining or exploring the city. We were more than pleased with our decision to stay at Camelback # 2.

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.
