A big kitchen in the heart of the home is large enough for cooking and gathering. The skylight and three large windows bring in lots of natural light. Equipped with a 48 inch stainless steel stove with 6 burners, a griddle, and double ovens. There is also a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, stainless steel refrigerator and dish washer. It is fully stocked with sponges, cleaning supplies, dishes, flatware, pots, pans, utensils, etc. and staples for cooking like a bag of coffee, sugar, oil, spices, just like you would have in your own home.

Enjoy the hibiscus flowers and ginger that surround a fountain in the fenced in brick courtyard with off street parking. Relax with family and friends around the tables and iron chairs.

Due to the size of the parking space and gates--off street parking is for small to mid-size cars only. If you wish to rent a large vehicle, plan to park on the street where there is normally ample parking, day and night.

About Christine and Michael

Christine and Michael own and manage Chez Livaudais. The house is our primary residence. During vacation rentals, we move to a nearby apartment. Christine is a teacher, and Michael is a New Orleans native and artist. Much of the art found in the house (paintings, stained glass, wood carving) is original and done by family.

Christine and Michael purchased this house in 2013

Why Christine and Michael chose Faubourg Livaudais

In a city of beautiful houses, Chez Livaudais is very special. Built in the late 19th century, the architecture has Italianate and Greek Revival features. The front porch is surrounded by cast iron railings and offers a lovely sitting area to enjoy morning coffee or afternoon wine. Inside, the high end finishes add a beauty and comfort not often found elsewhere. The raised home is a single, independent residence. It's not part of a townhouse, duplex or a rental on the ground floor. When you stay here, you're having an authentic Garden District experience.

What makes this house unique

This location offers both security and convenience. The neighborhood has a private patrol, and the house is a 1 minute walk to the streetcar. If you enjoy walking, shopping and dining out you could spend a week just in this area alone. Spend the day walking through the Garden District and feast your eyes on the amazing live oaks and magnolias, the citrus and fig trees, the colorful and spectacular varieties of flowers, birds, architecture, fountains, and ironwork. If you love to shop, walk 6 blocks to Magazine Street, and get coffee at the District Cafe to start your day. 5 blocks away is the famous Commander's Palace where you can sip 25 cent cocktails when you order an entree for lunch. Afterwards, cross the street and stroll through the historic Lafayette Cemetery. Watch out for vampires!

Beautiful home and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this property over spring break and loved every minute of it. The home has been lovingly restored and is clean, bright and comfortable. The three bathrooms are updated and linens are clean. We enjoyed the cozy family room, as well we the eat-in kitchen and large patio. The kitchen is stocked with everything needed for breakfast or a quick meal, although we usually took advantage of the many excellent restaurants within walking distance or quick streetcar ride. Christine and Michael were the most gracious of hosts. They met us at the house to give us a tour, greeted us with a bottle of wine and plenty of food in the frig and pantry, and offered helpful advice on touring New Orleans. Christine was responsive when we had questions during the week, too. We couldn't have asked for a better rental experience!

Great for Mardi Gras!

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 grandparents, 2 parents, and 2 children) had a great time at this property during the first weekend of Mardi Gras. It is a great location, not even a block away from the parade route. More extended family were staying around the corner, so we got lots of use out of their fabulous front porch and great back patio. The property is modern and spacious with all of the comforts of home. The owner, Christine, was more than gracious, welcoming us with King Cake and a stocked fridge to get the weekend started. Although we did not need her over the weekend, I feel that she would have been readily available by phone and able to solve any issues that may have arisen. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect trip.

  • 5 of 5

My party of 5 had an outstanding time in new orleans. Our accommodations could not have been better. The house is clean, updated, comfortable, and charming. We thoroughly enjoyed hanging out on the porch, back patio, and in the comfy living room. Christine was a huge help with recommendations as well as professional and easy to work with. Would rent this house from her again in a second. Highly recommend.

Beautiful Home Convenient to Everything

  • 5 of 5

6 of us went to New Orleans to celebrate my mother-in-laws 80th birthday and the house was a perfect home base. Christine was incredibly gracious, she met us at the house and explained everything and gave us tips about place to go and things to see. The house is spacious, airy and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is large and the perfect gathering place for the group over coffee or wine and cheese in the evenings. It has a lovely back patio to enjoy morning coffee. Most importantly the beds were all very comfortable. The location is amazing, a block from the St. Charles Trolley, walking distance Magazine St and restaurants and there is a great food market 8 blocks away. Also, an easy walk to the nicest part of the garden district. All and all a perfect place stay. Thank you Christine for your hospitality.

Beautiful home in a wonderful location owned by lovely people

  • 5 of 5

This home is just so beautiful. Tall ceilings, antique wood floors, gorgeous artwork, and lovely rooms with very comfortable sleeping arrangements. The owners were there when we arrived and gave us a ton of information about the house, the neighborhood, and New Orleans. Everything worked in the house, which was very well stocked with essentials. The bathrooms are really nice and the showers are pretty amazing. There is a sweet courtyard in the back with a pond and privacy for spending time outdoors. The house is only one block from the streetcars which was so convenient to getting around the city, and the neighborhood was quiet and safe. It was overall an incredibly wonderful stay and we very much hope to visit again.
