Overview

Uptown/Carrollton Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Built in the late 1870's, this grand antebellum home is one of New Orleans finest in architectural design. Imagine yourself in the late 1800's living in a southern antebellum mansion that boasted the finest in European chandeliers, iron work and stained glass windows.

This home has the finest of furnishings in close proximity to the St. Charles streetcar line that can take you from the Central Business District, French Quarter or to the the Uptown are that includes Audoban Park and Tulane and Loyola Universities. Come enjoy one of the greatest American cities that welcome tourist's as if it were your home 'somewhere in time'.

Given the architectural beauty of this home, the bedrooms are expansive with large doors and windows and tall ceilings. The king-size bedroom is adjoined with a large bathroom that boasts decorative ceramic tiles from the 1870's.

Further Details: The queen bedroom that hosts an old brick fireplace and shutters is adjoined by a beautiful, large modern bathroom with a whirlpool tub, and an open, walk-in shower. Ceramic tiles adorn the floor and walls. The third bedroom is large enough to accommodate two full-size beds, and an armoire with plenty of room to spare. This bedroom in the 1870s was used as a sleeping quarter to catch the cross breezes in the summer time using nine, large windows.

We love to preserve these beautiful and historical homes we see as gems.

Location! Location! Location! This home is found between two historical and lively streets, Magazine and St. Charles Avenue that has all the charm, shops, eateries that New Orleans can claim.

We enjoy the close proximity, the views, the people, and the history that it represents.

Fantastic location, beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Napoleon house for 7 ladies to experience Mardi Gras from an uptown location. The house exceeded expectations! Mary Jean and Liz were wonderful, accomodating hosts! When I asked about a crockpot, Mary Jean put hers in the kitchen! We bought groceries before arrival which worked out very well, since we never had to use the cars. Parking behind the protective gate greatly eased my mind. Four members of our party had never been to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. This was such a perfect way to introduce them to it. Several are already talking about future trips!

The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, the bathrooms had great hot water in the showers, and the washer/dryer even came in handy! The construction on Napoleon Ave. was not an issue. We were all able to watch the parades from across the street with many of our host's family and friends! Memorable moments that forever will make me smile!

I highly recommend this property and the property owners! Thank you!

Fantastic stay in antebellum New Orleans home!

  • 5 of 5

We of course had seen the Home Away add, but were not expecting the experience that we had at Napoleon House. The spacious accommodations, period decoration, modern kitchen, A/C, Wi Fi and all the furnishings were very comfortable. Working with the owners was very easy as they were responsive to all our questions and needs. It would be great if all our vacations had accommodations that were as convenient and comfortable.

The Napoleon House is AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 20 stayed for my brother’s 30 birthday in September. We rented both the upstairs and downstairs units of The Napoleon House. The house is beautiful and very spacious for 20 people to stay. Every couple basically had their own room and the rooms were very spacious. Check-in and check-out was very easy. My family also loved that the owners gave a little background story of the house too!! Perfect house for a large group to stay together!! We LOVED it!!

Location is perfect!! Just a two minute walk to the Streetcar which makes getting to the Quarter very easy. Definitely would stay here again!!

Fantastic place to stay in New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us were visiting New Orleans for four nights and had problems finding a place that would accommodate everyone comfortably. This house was everything we needed and more! Lots of space, two large bathrooms, washer/dryer, big kitchen and dining area, etc. It is within walking distance of some great places to eat. A large grocery store is somewhat close by. Only a couple blocks from the streetcar line which runs down to the Bourbon St. area. We had no problems getting around with cabs and Uber. Quick responses from the owners about any questions and concerns. Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful New Orleans retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome.We had 6 guys with high standards and they were met. We felt like we were part of the neighbor and loved the area. Bars and restaurants are all within walking distance and getting to the quarter is easy. The house has 15 foot ceilings, awesome hardwood floors and huge bathrooms. 6 guys were not cramped and everyone had their own bed. We will be back. Great place! Liz and Mary are wonderful hosts. Til next time, "The fly fishing Guys"

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

The home is absolutely beautiful from the outside, in fact, that was the first thing I commented on to my sister after we had seen the home.

However, coming up to the home we were surprised because our navigation system kept saying the road had limited access, but after driving along we realize the construction was the culprit. There is quite a bit of construction down Napoleon Avenue towards the house. Large equipment filled the median area so it was a bit of an eyesore, but luckily there was rain and we weren’t disturbed by the noises of the work.

We actually had two of the units in the Napoleon House. I actually stayed in this particular unit. Now, the stairs got me but I am happy to say we all managed them, barely. The rooms are large, spacious and lovely. The house is well cared for and the renovations kept the specialness of it being an old home intact. I was in the Queen room with the shutters and fireplace. This unit also had central air, which made me happy, happy, and happy! All the bedrooms had a flat screen television except the one I occupied, which I knew prior to check in.

The kitchen is one of my dreams and comes fully stocked with the cooking items you may need. Since it was a quite a large group of us in all three units (we had the condo across the street as well), the kitchen was great for this trip. Wonderful appliances and cookware and I loved it, even with the little cooking I actually did. Having access to a washer and dryer also was a bonus, and we washed and dried clothes before we left.

The one thing that seemed to irritate us the most was the Wi-Fi. I am one of those people who sleeps with a television on and since I was in a room without one, I was hoping to watch Netflix until I went to sleep; well the Wi-Fi situation was janky at best. If you were able to use it, it would only work for a short period of time and you were kicked off. We couldn’t reset the router, so we just whined and moaned about not being totally connected. I probably more than the others because I just knew I would at least have access to my Netflix account since I was in the television free room.

I want folks to know it really is a beautiful home and it served our needs beautifully. Just keep in mind they have some construction in the median, which looked like sewer work and Wi-Fi issues. Other than those small problems, I would definitely recommend the home to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for appreciating the architectural values and comforts of this home. Renaissance is occurring in many parts of New Orleans particularly after Hurricane Katrina. There is renovation in many parts of the city so with improvements come some temporary construction. As for the internet service, it is unfortunate that we were not made aware of the sporadic connections until this review. As owners, we try very hard to offer the best accommodations. In the future, I hope renters will notify us owners so that we may have the chance to improve the situation.
