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.
Beyond the kitchen, there is a washer/dryer with detergent available for your use. The towels and bedding are new with sheets 100% cotton, 400-650 count. Toiletries such as soap, shampoo/conditioner, toilet paper, and other basic supplies that you would need in the bath are provided.
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 house, great location
This house is absolutely beautiful! Just as stunning as in the pictures. It was the perfect amount of space for 6 adults and a toddler. The location is great - just a block from St. Charles. And the owners are very friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Lovely, peaceful slice of heaven
Live your garden district fantasy in this exceptional residence. An easy walk to food, shopping, and the streetcar makes this spot a fantastic NOLA home away... And yes — it’s just like the photos and more!
Charming, spacious New Orleans Home
We loved our stay. It’s a very spacious 3brm home with all the amenities you could need on your getaway. Christine and Michael are wonderful hosts who provide great recommendations for restaurants or other things you may need on your trip. The location is perfect—down the street from the St Charles streetcar. The place is immaculate. If it’s for a week or a long weekend, your family won’t be disappointed!
Outstanding location, people, and place
We cannot say enough good things about our host, the house, and the city. This Garden District location was perfect for our family. Thanks C & M!
This is a beautiful home located in the Garden District. You can access the trolly one block over or just start walking to see all the beautiful sites. I would recommend this home.
Welcoming home, great for families
From the moment we arrived, we were impressed with the cleanliness and care taken with this property. The location worked well for us to get quickly around town, and we were able to street park adjacent to the house for the entirety of the trip. The back patio was a fantastic and private place to relax, drink wine, and enjoy some sun, while the kids explored safely. The house itself is well arranged, with comfortable beds and pleasant light throughout. Easy to catch the streetcar just a short walk away, and a good bakery close for breakfast pastries. Owners were helpful and personable. Would recommend.
The house is a block to the heart of the Garden District where you can wander independently or join a walking tour. If you opt to join a walking tour, they often begin at the Garden District Bookshop and Still Perkin' Coffee Shop, just 4 blocks away. Within 6 blocks of the house, you will see the homes of well-known actors and writers, the New Orleans Women's Opera Guild, the famous cornstalk fence, Lafayette Cemetery # 1, Commander's Palace restaurant, and so much more. Everything you need is within easy walking distance including Chase Bank, Rite Aid pharmacy, Fresh Market grocery, plus a wide variety of restaurants, pubs, and bars ranging from fast food (Subway, Wendy's, McDonald's) to fine dining (Commander's Palace, Emeril's Delmonico, and Lillette are within a mile). Whether you wish to travel uptown or downtown, it's a short walk (75 yards) to St. Charles Avenue streetcar. Take the streetcar uptown to access Audubon Park & Zoo, Tulane and Loyola Universities, and the Carrollton neighborhood. Going downtown? The historic streetcar provides charming and scenic transportation to the Arts District, Central Business District,French Quarter, Faubourg Marigny, the Superdome and Convention Center. Once at Canal Street you can transfer to the Canal Street car line and take it to City Park, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and the Fairgrounds Racetrack.
