Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Hardwood floors, 12-foot ceilings, a giant kitchen, big light-filled windows and a columned front porch for R&R - this apartment has all the things that make New Orleans architecture special. Add modern amenities like central air and heat, free WiFi and satellite TV, and you've got the perfect home base from which to explore all this great city has to offer!

Lovingly renovated in 2009 by yours truly, this apartment has some important features that are hard to come by in New Orleans. Number one, we have two large, INDEPENDENT bedrooms for maximum privacy and comfort - no walk-though bedrooms here. We have two FULL baths so no lines for the shower. We're a two story unit, with both bedrooms and one bath upstairs, and the den, kitchen and second bath downstairs - so you can easily steal a nap or a little quiet time whenever it suits you.

But the real appeal here is the neighborhood - as they say, location, location, location! We are one block off bustling Magazine Street, steps from over 30 of New Orleans finest restaurants and bars.

Prefer to dine in? Stock up at the Big Fisherman Seafood Market or Breaux Mart grocery, both two blocks away, and whip up your own culinary masterpiece in our large, fully-stocked kitchen. Should you need to pair that meal with a bottle of fine wine, the folks at Martin Wine Cellar - half a block away, will set you up nicely.

If you're like most, you're coming to New Orleans to indulge - and indulge you should! And when the guilty bug gets you, you've got your choice of yoga classes, gym workouts or spa treatments just steps away to get you feeling refreshed. Add to that a boatload of boutiques, art galleries and antique stores, and you'll understand why we love our neighborhood and our city so much!

In town for a special event? We are a short walk from the Magazine Street bus line and the St. Charles Street car line. So whether you're headed to the Superdome, Arena, French Quarter, Aquarium, D-Day Museum, Convention Center, or other downtown attractions, or the Audubon Park and Zoo or Universities uptown, you can get there quickly, easily, and in style. And Mardi Gras? You're practically ON the uptown parade route, a short walk away to St. Charles Avenue.

New Orleans is a lot to take in. Luckily, we live right next door, and are always eager to lend a helping hand. We are a fun-loving young couple (mid-30s), one a green technology financier and the other a professional musician in a popular local band. Why does that matter to you? Because we love our city and are deeply involved in every aspect of its culture! We invite you to enjoy the suggestions we've left for you about where to go and what to do. And above all we encourage you to ask us questions - we are so proud of our city and we want you to love it as much as we do!

About Aaron Wilkinson

We are a fun-loving young couple (mid-30s), one a green technology financier and the other a professional musician in a popular local band. Why does that matter to you? Because we love our city and are deeply involved in every aspect of its culture!

There's hardly a restaurant, lounge or shop we haven't been to - and there's a good chance we'll know some of the staff wherever you're headed. Tell em we sent ya!

Aaron Wilkinson purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Aaron Wilkinson chose Central City/Garden District

When we went house shopping our primary criteria was that we wanted to be able to walk to whatever we needed. Well we got that in spades! We are a short walk from over 30 of the city's finest restaurants, plus a seafood market, grocery and fine wine cellar, as well as a boatload of bars, lounges, boutiques and antique shops. You even have your choice of Yoga studios, gyms and a full service spas right here. Its an established New Orleans fact that Magazine Street has it all!

What makes this apartment unique

This house is over 100 years old - it's a renovated Victorian which means you have all the things that make New Orleans architecture world famous - hardwood floors, 12-foot ceilings, a giant kitchen, big light-filled windows and a columned front porch for R&R, just to name a few.

However, all that Old World style can have it's limitations. Most homes like this in New Orleans are built in what's known as a shotgun style - meaning each room opens to the next from the front to the back of the house. That means many 'two bedroom' homes in New Orleans don't offer much privacy - you have to walk through each bedroom to get to the kitchen, bathroom, etc. Not the case here. We have two large, INDEPENDENT bedrooms for maximum privacy and comfort - no walk-thoughs. We have two FULL baths so no lines for the shower. We're a two story unit, with both bedrooms and one bath upstairs, and the den, kitchen and second bath downstairs - so you can easily steal a nap or a little quiet time whenever it suits you.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Aaron's place for a week during Mardi Gras with my mother, my husband, and my 2 young daughters. It was the perfect layout and location for our needs. The property is a short walk to restaurants, bars, and shops on Magazine Street and about a 12 minute walk to the parades. It is an old building so of course the floors are creaky and the plumbing in the sinks was a little slow, but its charming characteristics vastly outweighed these. Sitting in the rockers on the front porch was great for people watching. I thought the shower water pressure was sufficient and the washer and dryer were very convenient. Nice neighbors too. I hope we can stay at Aaron's place on our next visit!

Garden district was a great experience.

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for the 6 of us, the weather was amazing, not one drop of rain. Voodoo fest was one we will always remember. Hallows Eve in the french quarter was unbelievable. Great place to stay, steps from Magazine street. I highly recommend this place. Thanks Aaron.

rocking chair heaven!

  • 4 of 5

My favorite part about our stay at this house was the porch and rocking chairs! It's a nice way to spend any time of your day-morning coffee, afternoon siesta, evening wind down. The old house was very characteristic and fitting for New Orleans. Having two bathrooms is a plus. The kitchen has newer appliances and very clean. Close enough to the cable cars and far enough away from the chaos to relax. Of course Magazine street is right there with a variety of shops and eating places. If you want a true four star hotel-this is not it! If you want a house with lots of space, comfortable beds, a great front porch and a newer kitchen than this is it!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We found this home to be a perfect choice. There is a market, drug store and many wonderful restaurants literally right

around the corner. The neighborhood is quiet. Public transportation was a breeze. Would absolutely choose this home

again and would highly recommend it. Home is spacious and comfortable.
