About the property

Historic Condo in the heart of the French Quarter

Second floor condo with spacious gallery just one and half blocks from Jackson Square in the heart of the Vieux Carre. Just a half a block from Sylvain Restuarant, the infamous Napoleon House and a block from Lucullus Culinary Antique Store. For the fashionistas- the United Apparel Liquidators (UAL) location is right beneath.

Enter through an original antique door into the passageway leading to a beautiful New Orleans Courtyard and ascend up the original spiral stairs. A triptych of original French Doors and transom assemblies leads to the 200 square foot gallery with antique hand forged New Orleans ironwork and amazing views of St. Louis Cathedral, the oldest Church in the Lower Mississippi Valley. Elegantly reticulated original transom with antique glass over extant original pocket doors leading to the bedroom. Plaster walls and medallions, beautifully appointed contemporary kitchen with granite counter tops and new appliances. Bathroom with marble tile floors and a jacuzzi tub.

Great Location but Interior Needs TLC!

  • 3 of 5

If you are looking for a perfect French Quarter location, this is it. Located on Royal Street just blocks from Jackson Square, it gives you the flavor of the Quarter without the crazy of Bourbon Street. The huge balcony is wonderfully suited for people-watching. While we enjoyed the location, we were very disappointed with the interior. The furniture was in terrible condition and incredibly uncomfortable. The balcony furniture was not usable (small, wrought-iron, awful) so we brought up folding chairs to use as outdoor seating.The kitchen was small but fine. The bathroom needs updating. I would give the location a 5-star rating and the interior a 1. Tips: the garbage disposal switch is hidden behind a removable tile behind the sink. There is a public parking lot directly behind the building that costs $30/day. Get there early to get a space, it fills up!

Absolute New Orleans Perfection!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Nola 6 times. Prior to this experience, we would stay in the local hotels. Never Again!!!! This exquisite little gem is found right in the heart of the French Quarter. It is perfect! THIS IS THE WAY to experience New Orleans! Lovely people to deal with, and we will definitely be returning!!!!

Beautiful vintage gallery in the French Quarter, in the heart of everything but still away from all the crowds. My wife and I had an incredible stay during the 4th of July weekend this year and the balcony was an amazing bonus! Thanks for everything!

If you go to New Orleans look no further. One cannot describe how beautiful this place is. Not only the view from the gallery but inside as well. I felt at home and is if I had been taken back in time. Perfect location in the heart of the French quarter and away from the noise of Bourbon. An easy walk to everywhere. Whether it's Frenchmen Street for music or the business district for an elegant dinner. We had the most fantastic trip and one the main reasons was our stay here. So come stay...sit on the gallery enjoy your coffee in the morning and watch the world go by. Sonya the owner is fantasic to work with and and met every expectation.I hope to be back every year!

This place is beautiful beyond words!!!

  • 5 of 5

GORGEOUS AND CENTRALLY LOCATED! This place is in a wonderful location. Gorgeous view of Jackson Square. Museum quality 18th furniture. This apartment is just wonderful! Decorated with a magical feel of New Orleans Past....a little rustic, yet comfortable and a authentic, historic feel makes the property magical. To stay here made us feel as if we had gone back in time! We will be back to stay as much as we possibly can! Landlord is warm and gracious hostess!
