Overview

East Riverside Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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.

Great house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was more than we expected! It is huge and in a great location. We were able to walk to Magazine Street for meals and it is a short walk to the trolley to go to the French Quarter. We will definitely stay at this house next time we are in New Orleans.

Southern Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Large, gorgeous home in a perfect location. Great kitchen, plenty of room upstairs and the two bathrooms were nice. Spent so much time on the front porch, coffee in the morning, wine in the evening. Really added to the New Orleans experience. Plus there was always a parking space out front.

Very comfortable and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a very nice week in this house. The property is conveniently located next to Magazine St and only a few blocks away from the next streetcar/bus stop. The house itself is just fine, very comfortable and quiet (except for the air conditioner outside bedroom #2).

Couldn't ask for a better location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this house. It was the perfect size for our family and had all the conveniences we could ask for. The only downside is the water pressure as mentioned by other guests. We just got used to "trickle showers" during our stay!

Not enough can be said about how great the location is! You really are steps from everything. I much preferred this area to the crowded and crazy French Quarter. There are so many nice shops and restaurants on Magazine Street, most of the best ones are close to the house! We took a food tour through Teach Me Tours and all the places they took us to were within 5 blocks of the apartment. And all the beautiful houses, blocks upon blocks of beautiful houses!
