About Jesse

I have searched for a second home in this neighborhood for several years. 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

Why Jesse chose Downtown

1 block form Frenchman street which has the best music and food to be found in New Orleans.

3 blocks from French Quarter.

Tons of amazing restaurants and shops within the surrounding blocks.

Safe and friendly residential neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Historic home with all the right updates while keeping all the important vintage features.

12 foot ceilings and floor plan make for a very cozy yet open home.

Surprised my husband with a trip to NOLA

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! We had a group of 9 people celebrating my husband's 30 the birthday & there was more than enough space. The house was clean and cozy & full of character. The location was perfect with only a 15 - 20 minute walk to the French Quarter. Even closer to Frenchman street.

Jesse was amazing, responding to all my inquiries & questions very promptly.

I would definitely book this house again when we return!

Great overall experience.

  • 5 of 5

The place was absolutely perfect. The pictures online don't do it justice. Much better in person. The house is actually very spacious and clean. Great kitchen area for cooking. Nice dining room table to eat, play cards, etc. Tv's in every room. Beds are comfortable. Both showers and bathrooms are very nice. Neighborhood was nice also. The house has a full alarm system too. The owner (Jesse) was very helpful and easy to get a hold of throughout the whole process. We all will definitely be back again.

Great guys weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The Smile House was the perfect place to stay for a weekend in NOLA! The house was awesome with plenty of space for even 11 guys. You can walk to any number of attractions from the house including Bourbon street, Frenchman street, Canal Street, Cafe Du Monde, etc. If we're ever back on 'dat bayou there's no question where we'll be staying. Thanks Jesse!

We rented the week of the jazz fest for a family get together for my fathers second line funeral. Great location! Everyone was comfortable. Jessie was always easily reached prior to arrival. Cannot say enough about it!
