Overview

New Orleans Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Built in the late 1870's, this grand antebellum is one of New Orleans finest in architectural design. Imagine yourself in the late 1800's living in a southern antebellum mansion that boasted the finest in European chandeliers, iron work and stained glass windows, all along an oak tree lined avenue.

This home has the finest of furnishings in close proximity to the St. Charles streetcar line that can take you from the Central Business District, French Quarter or to the the Uptown are that includes Audoban Park and Tulane and Loyola Universities. Come enjoy one of the greatest American cities that welcome tourist's as if it were your home 'somewhere in time'.

Given the architectural beauty of this home, the bedrooms are expansive with large doors and windows, and tall ceilings. What is gorgeous about this unit is after walking through the leaded front doors, there is the expanse of a plaster archway that adjoins the living and dining room into a double parlor. The living room then showcases 14' pocket doors.

Off-street parking is also available for up to 3 cars parked in a single file line. Plenty of on-street parking is available in front or along side of the house.

Why Liz Berzas chose New Orleans

Location! Location! Location! An architectural beauty that is so close to great shops, restaurants, transportation, the French Quarter, Audubon Zoo, Tipitina's, the Universities and many, many more fantastic sites. This house is also on the parade route which is priceless!

What makes this estate unique

Imagining the period in time in which this house and area were built. The craftsmanship is quite amazing; plaster trip, medallions and archways pay great attention to detail. The house is so convenient to so many venues that there's never a dull moment.

Couldn't be happier

  • 5 of 5

Spent an amazing girls bachelorette weekend based out of the top floor unit of the Napoleon house. It makes an amazing first impression - it was incredibly spacious. High ceilings, an upgraded kitchen, antique touches (like stained glass) and massive bathrooms perfect for a large group of ladies! It was the perfect home base to spend a weekend celebrating my sister. The location was great - a short cab to the French Quarter and our group spent a lot of time wandering all the great shops and restaurants on Magazine Street. We took a random turn off Magazine and discovered NOLA brewing on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The dining room was perfect for the whole group of 10 to sit down for gift giving and drinks. Thank you so much to Liz and Mary for their hospitality and the handwritten note thanking us for our stay. Great service, great hosts, don't hesitate- book this place!

Wonderful Historic Home. Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of ten stayed at the house over the holidays. It was perfect for us. Plenty of room for everyone. It was an unusually warm Christmas and we were able to take advantage of the large front porch. The location was perfect. It's just a couple of blocks from the streetcar for access to the quarter. Magazine street is just a block away with great shops and restaurants. This is a great location if you want to do more walking than driving. The owners were very helpful throughout the whole process. Love this place!

The Napoleon House is AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 20 stayed for my brother’s 30 birthday in September. We rented both the upstairs and downstairs units of The Napoleon House. The house is beautiful and very spacious for 20 people to stay. Every couple basically had their own room and the rooms were very spacious. Check-in and check-out was very easy. My family also loved that the owners gave a little background story of the house too!! Perfect house for a large group to stay together!! We LOVED it!!

Location is perfect!! Just a two minute walk to the Streetcar which makes getting to the Quarter very easy. Definitely would stay here again!!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay in NOLA. We had 5 couples for Jazz Fest and there was plenty of space. You can't beat the location which allows you to walk to several good restaurants. We were able to tour the other apt upstairs and it was just as beautiful so I think you can't go wrong in either one.

Ripped Off!

  • 1 of 5

We rented the house during the NADA show. When we checked into the house it was 58 degrees, INSIDE the house. The heating system could not heat the house. They called their HVAC person the next morning and we were told that the system could not heat the house. We had to check out and find hotel rooms for our employees. When we asked for a refund, they told us we would receive one, but they may charge us for the night. When we received the partial refund, they charged us 30% of the rental fee.

They did offer another house with the same results. If it is cold out, I would not rent from these people, and if it is hot out, I am not sure if the house will be cooled off.

Owner's Response: In this unit, there are six individual mini-splits which were just installed only two years ago. Mini splits are ductless heating and air conditioning products and are high quality and energy efficient. The mini splits sit up high on these 14’ walls and are managed with a remote control to regulate temperature, fan speed and current patterns. Our immediate past guests had mild weather and the mini splits were set lower to accommodate those warmer temperatures. When our new guests (4) arrived at 1am, New Orleans was in the middle of an unprecedented polar vortex with lows in the 20s and the unit may have been chilly. Given the guest did not know how to work the remote, he did write and I promptly responded very early that morning. Through phone conversations, I offered to send a service person through multiple road and bridge closures where they arrived in just a couple of hours to correctly set the remote after the guest changed all the settings. I called the guest who was out touring New Orleans that it will take a little time to heat up the large space. While the service man was present, he noticed no belongings in the unit; they had already left. The guests stated they did not want to stay and so I offered them another beautiful unit that had central heat which was something they were more accustomed to. They denied the offer. In our written agreement as drafted by Homeaway and VRBO, if a guest leaves early, the deposit and nightly rate are forfeited. We did review the unit later that same day and found it to be very warm and actually had to turn down the heat. As I explained to the guest, we quickly responded, made corrections, paid for a service call, paid for the cleaning, paid for the credit card fees, offered other quality arrangements, and returned the nightly rate for four nights of his four- night reservation during a peak conference where all hotel rooms were sold out in New Orleans. We certainly strive to be responsive to our guests needs and felt we had gone above and beyond, honoring all requests and even refunding all of the nightly rate. As evident in our past posts, we try to offer the best product and experience and all of our properties get 5 out of 5 stars.
