Seeking beautiful open spaces filled with light, stained glass windows, and antique flooring, all on one level? This clean, spacious 2200 square foot, 3 bedroom, 3 full bathroom house provides comfort, style, and convenience. It is the perfect spot for family and friends to gather and enjoy a New Orleans holiday.

There are three independent bedrooms, and three full marble bathrooms. Each bedroom has its own charm and style plus ceiling fans and abundant closet space.

The second bedroom has a queen bed with a brand new firm mattress, also with an en suite bathroom with black marble and glassed in shower with sky light. Shower under the sun and stars!

The third bedroom features 2 antique twin beds with new mattresses. Although not an en suite, there is a third bathroom with a glassed in shower with a spa-like pebble floor, a travertine sink and travertine tile throughout.

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.

Spacious and Beautiful in the heart of the Garden District!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay here was wonderful! We were able to stroll through the garden district and view all of the beautiful homes. 1 block off off St. Charles was a huge plus, too, because you can jump right on the trolley to anywhere. The home is very spacious and equipped with every need. Because of record low temperatures, we were not able to enjoy the beautiful back patio with fountain or sit on the gorgeous front porch to watch passersby, but we will be back when it is warmer. The house was simply charming!

Owner's Response: Hi, Laurie, thanks so much for your wonderful review. I wonder; why the 4 stars? We went above and beyond to be accommodating to your specific needs: You had a 9 week old puppy, an extra person (no charge), and had asked to have a cocktail party. We don't normally allow any of that, and we worked with you on all of it. I'm at a loss as to why you'd write such lovely words with only a 4 star review.

Foodie visit with our toddlers

  • 5 of 5

Can’t say enough about our stay. Great location (museums, French quarter and all our fave restaurants were 10 min away). We stayed with our nanny and our 2 toddlers (4 and 2). Owners were great, coordinated with our baby rental company ahead of time, offered anything in the house or kitchen for us to use. House was clean, very well decorated, very well stocked with all the essentials. All one level with no stairs was great for the kids! The beds were super comfy and the showers were great!! Kitchen was excellent for cooking breakfast/coffee. We always found parking outside, and the neighborhood was great. Beautiful classic garden district residential quiet neighborhood. Safe, quiet, we took uber rides in the evening to Shaya, coquett, Cochon, LPG, CL, Saffron: all 10 min or so. Owners were excellent with communication and very responsive. They texted our second day to see how we were and recommend some holiday lights. Overall this property was perfect for us and exceeded our expectations! We really had a wonderful stay despite the unseasonable cold weather (snow!). We would be happy to stay here again and highly recommend for anyone wanting to be close to, but out of the action of this wonderful city. Cheers! Thanks again!

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.

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!

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).
