Overview

French Quarter Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

In the heart of the French Quarter, this lovely and secluded pied a terre is just four and a half blocks away from Jackson Square and ½ a block from Armstrong Park. Dating back to the early 1800’s, this stucco structure was the slave quarter to the main house, and both are excellent examples of early Creole architecture. The neighborhood was that of free people of color and the famed Voodoo priestess, Marie Laveau, lived just two doors away. This beautifully furnished and appointed residence sleeps five and consists of two bedrooms with one bath between and a large fully furnished kitchen. A balcony with stunning roof top views is accessible from both bedrooms and overlooks a large courtyard that guests have full access to. There are laundry facilities on the premises. Cable and internet are both provided

Great French Quarter Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We met another couple down in the French Quarter for 4 days, and this place was fantastic for our needs. It has a great location, and Lee is a great hostess. She was just across the courtyard, available for any questions we had, and left us to our own devices, outside of a few recommendations when we arrived. Check in and out instructions were clearly communicated, and we had everything we needed (toilet paper, towels, etc.) in the place itself.

There is a full kitchen, though we only utilized the fridge and freezer, and the bedrooms are quite nice, upstairs. The bathroom was clean, and the shower was superior anything in a hotel. The only word of caution I will provide is to agree with other reviewers about the staircase: it is super steep, super narrow, and the stair steps are very shallow. People with mobility issues (which included us after drinking on Bourbon St.) may have issues with the stairs.

The AC works great, and felt great after roaming the French Quarter in the summer heat. There is a convenience store one block away on Burgundy, and Bourbon St. is within stumbling distance. Our friends drove their car down and used Lee's parking pass, but we did not drive at all. We walked the entire time and it was perfect. We would not only recommend this place, we plan to stay again in the future.

Oh, also, because so many other reviews have mentioned him, Elliot the dog is adorable and charming. He likes to visit, but knows when to leave. My type'a dog. :)

Bravo

  • 5 of 5

My longest lifetime friend and I decided to meet in a city where we really have not explored. After looking at hotel rates, we decided to have a little more character. Boom. Slave Quarters it is. Dip into history and dip into location. We didn't know it was minutes from our preferred gay friendly bars and lots of eateries.

Lee was fantastic and when arriving was welcoming and filled with suggestions of what to do since it was our first time there.

The beds were comfy. Stairs a little steep at times for our old joints but we loved the quiet so we could talk and unwind after a day of walking, eating and social drinking.

Bravo!

The best of all locations!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in the Quarter, from one end to another, numerous times, I can attest that this truly is the best accommodation ever! The listing description was spot-on and though I had been just a touch concerned about being so close to Ramparts St., it actually ended up feeling totally safe and secure. You can walk to everything in the Quarter and the Marigny from this location in the quiet part of the Quarter, the cottage is comfortable with a full kitchen (which our group took full advantage of), and you can’t beat the gorgeous, tranquil courtyard setting and balcony. The owner, Lee, is amazing – making sure at every turn that our group (two 60-somethings and three 30-somethings) had, or could easily get, everything we needed for our stay. She also had that perfect balance of being warm and friendly without being intrusive in any way and, prior to the trip, she promptly responded to all inquiries and was just a joy to work with. I have already recommended the property to my New Orleans-going friends and would definitely stay here again and hope to do so soon.

Loved it! 5++++ stars!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property. Close enough to the action but still quiet enough to sleep at night. Lee was amazing. She was helpful every step of the way. She gave us great recommendations. Elliot, her dog, was a bonus! We are all dog lovers and enjoyed his company. The property does sleep 5, but if you are going with three kids be aware that the single bed is down on the main level while the other two bedrooms are upstairs. Not at all a deal breaker but could be an issue if you have kids that spook easy. We would stay here again and would recommend this property to friends.

Great, quiet space for a small group! Beautiful Courtyard too!

  • 5 of 5

I reserved Lee's property for my sister's bachelorette party in March 2016. The house and rooms were as described, and the accommodations were great! One bathroom amazingly handled all 5 of us and had plenty of towels! The beds were clean and comfy, and the kitchen had all the utensils we needed to make meals and hang out. For 5 gals, this small property was perfect. I would say that a group of 4 people would be very happy with this arrangement. Also, Elliot the dog is quite ladykiller-- he had all of us in love by the end of the trip.

If you have lots of luggage/pieces... it might get a little crammed (speaking from experience, since I had 2 giant suitcases because of a work trip). My sister and I have already said that if and when we come back to NOLA with our husbands, or with other friends-- we would rebook a stay with Lee for this house, without even checking any other options-- we loved it that much. The location cannot be beat! We walked everywhere and loved how central it was. Ubers/Taxis were easy to catch here, and were cheap to get to other locations.

There is a small corner store less than 2 blocks from the house that has everything you need to make breakfast, make mimosas or even get a quick sandwich.

There is a few bars within walking distance that aren't on bourbon street (thankful for that change of pace)... and there is a AWESOME french cafe on rampart a block or two away that had incredible fresh pastries.

The only thing I mention is that the front house shares the courtyard, so there will be Elliot and people sharing that space at any given time. At one point on Saturday morning someone began washing and drying a pair of sneakers and the noise woke us all up... so it was a little rough on our hangover, but can be expected with a shared space.

Loved how convenient everything is in this neighborhood, and everyone is kind and helpful. Couldn't have asked for a better, more magical weekend for my first visit to NOLA!

Excellent location, adorable house.

  • 5 of 5

Lee was an unobtrusive, laid-back host.

The house was very cute--a lovely hideaway with an amazing courtyard/outdoor space.

Beds were super comfortable.

We shared the house with another couple: could be a bit small for four adults considering there is one bathroom. The kitchen and dining area are modest, but that was not a significant factor for us.
