About Jesse

After I had searched for a second home in this neighborhood for several years, I found this gem in 2011. I feel that I have found the perfect location, central to everything you need, and the peacefulness of a safe residential neighborhood. I am extending my home to you when I am not there because it is too beautiful not to share.

Jesse purchased this House in 2011

                                                        Great location and owneship

                                                        Matthew M.Tulsa, Oklahoma

                                                        First of all, don’t worry at all about the location. Frenchman street was a quick walk and then bourbon was a 10-15 minute stroll, or a cheap Uber. There is a popular brunch spot maybe 100 ft away called the ruby slipper, and a nice wine store not much further called 2nd vine. Check them both out.

                                                        The house is nice and has everything you need. The air conditioner was a beast and kept the house comfy. Lastly, I do want to thank the owner for being flexible. We didn’t need to be at the airport until 5 and didn’t know what to do with our bags. Since nobody was coming in that day, he let us hang out until we needed to leave. A Big shout out to him for that! They also had beads on each bed, a fun touch.

                                                        The property was clean and organized. It was a very close walk to multiple restaurants and bars. We all had a great time with ZERO issues. I even left my glasses there and the owner graciously returned them to me. Thanks for the great stay. We will be back.

                                                        We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Smile House! Convenient location to everything... even Bourbon St. Great breakfast place right around the corner. Owner was very accommodating with our arrival and departure times!!! When we return to New Orleans, Smile House will be at the top of our list for places to stay!!!

                                                        Thanks for a great experience.

                                                        Well-appointed, lots of sleeping room, terrific location. Jesse is a great host, very laid back and responsive to anything you might need. Parking on the street was difficult at times. Loved the kitchen area. Perfect for our bridesmaids reunion (circa 1991)!

                                                        We enjoyed our stay at the Smile House. We felt very welcome in this spacious home. The location can't be beat! Walking distance to several incredible restaurants and the French Quarter! Unfortunately we found ourselves in NOLA during a very cold spell and it was difficult to keep the whole house consistently warm. Also, the kitchen is a bit lacking if you want to really cook.

                                                        Yes the 20 degree weather is unusual for New Orleans and the heat struggles at that.

                                                        Kitchen is set with all the basics, but not prepared for a master chef ;)
