Overview

About the property

Historic Home near universities, Audubon Park & Oak Street

In 1995, my wife and I at the time, were looking to buy a formal home for our growing family, but we only had 75,000. My best friend suggested that we use the money to purchase a fix'er upper. With his help, and a little sweat, blood, and tears over the years, our 1909 historic Greek revival home, has made us very proud owners of a sweet New Orleans landmark! There's beautiful rustic hardwood flooring throughout, with each room having cypress trim work. The kitchen and bath rooms are up to date with all new fixtures. Each bedroom is about 20 x 25 feet wide, and dressed with fresh bedding. The entire house is furnished with antique furniture, and the kitchen is up to date with all new appliances and restaurant style cookware, so you can entertain friends. The front yard is landscaped, with each seating throughout each outdoor corridors. Also, for your entire party, we will include free Aquarium tickets. As well as dinner for your entire party at Zeas Restaurant. We're located just one block away from the St. Charles trolley, and about 5 minutes driving distance from the historic French Quarter. So y'all come on down, and experience life like a native New Orleanian!

Free Complimentary Breakfast for your entire party at the Camellia Grill in the Carrollton River Bend on your first morning.With a stay of 3,or more nights.

$200 towards dinner at any restaurant with a 4 night booking!

About Victor Sippio

My name is Victor, I'm a native New Orleanian, and I renovate historic homes here for resale.

Victor Sippio purchased this house in 1995

Why Victor Sippio chose New Orleans

I purchased this property because it was a diamond in the rough, it showed character, and I knew all it needed was a little bit of love! I'm so happy to share my beautiful home with you!

What makes this house unique

This house is very detailed with historic features that you hardly find here in the city anymore, including doors that open up directly to the top balcony, and big beautiful backyards. Homes like these, are either being destroyed, or being updated so much, that the original beauty of the home, is being removed. We didn't wanna do that here, so alot of the original work is still here in the house!

Wonderful family and friend vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group coming into town for a Mardi Gras ball and Victor more than accommodated us all. He was so easily reached whenever we had a question or concern before the trip and during our stay. There were many good restaurants in walking distance and we loved taking the young kids in our family down the street to the trolley station. We would highly recommend staying here. Felt very safe in the neighborhood and had plenty of room inside for over 15 guests! We also loved the entertaining aspect of two living room and precious back and front porches. It allowed lots of common areas which we would not have gotten staying in separate hotel room or multiple VRBO houses to accommodate the beds we needed. Please take our family's word and contact Victor if you need a home to base your New Orleans adventure out of.

Owner's Response: I was a pleasure to have the Taylor's at our lovely home. Being a host is the most rewarding experience I have had when it comes to customer service, I love putting a smile on all of the customers faces that visit the Victorian plum,I would like to let our future patrons know that we have added a outside deck upstairs on the second floor. We will offer massage therapy. 125 for the first hour.with a four night stay the first hour is free.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 15 and there was plenty of room. Victor was awesome!!! He filled the fridge with everything we requested and the home has alot of character. We were able to uber back and forth to the French quarter. The neighborhood was very safe so we were never worried.

Great experience and a really great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Victor was a great landlord and was a great person to rent from. We had a great time staying in the house and really enjoyed all that came with it. The balcony was great to hang out on and was a real southern feel that you would expect from a house. The southern hospitality in New Orleans was truly one of a kind and this house was that as well. The house was a great size for a group to hang out in. It was truly a New Orleans house which made the trip so much more authentic and so much more memorable. The rooms were all furnished beautifully and the house had the real southern feel that made our trip just that much better. They rooms had very easy entry which was a huge positive. We had such a great time staying in the house and would definitely stay here again. This house was great for Mardi Gras because it was plenty close to the action, but still allowed some distance to really enjoy the experience the journey to the party. I cannot understate how great Victor was helping us with our trip and how great the house was. It was truly a trip of a lifetime.
