About the property

This shotgun house,(meaning 'no halls, one room after another'. You could shoot a shotgun from the front door out the backdoor, but please don't) is in one of the oldest residential neighborhoods outside of the French Quarter (the original city of New Orleans). Many of the people that originally lived in the Bywater were craftsmen, so the houses are not fancy, but have character.

About Debbie Khoury

My husband and I are retired educators who left New Orleans post-Katrina for a warm, dry place to spend our 'golden years'. After 2 1/2 years in Phoenix (which is a lovely place), we miss New Orleans terribly and hope to return as often as possible. There is no place like it in the world.

Debbie Khoury purchased this house in 2000

Why Debbie Khoury chose Downtown

This was a rental house until we renovated this house for our use when we return to New Orleans for frequent visits (a must). It is not glamorous, (nor are we), but very clean, cute, comfortable and convenient.

What makes this house unique

New Orleans is a city of 'neighborhoods' and this one is a diverse and unpretenious neighborhood of real working New Orleanians, but close enough to enjoy all that the French Quarter and Downtown have to offer. The house has old-world charm in it high ceilings, pine floors and pocket doors. It has a fenced yard for privacy, but notice how the neighbors 'porch-sit' and everyone speaks to everyone.

It was perfect, clean and homey!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights. It it's about 2.5 mile walk to the French Quarter, about 1.5 mile to the flea market. We walked to the river each day. We loved our stay!

Excellent! The owners were very friendly and helpful...always just a phone call away to answer ?s.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! It was clean and sufficiently and beautifully furnished. The neighbors were very nice and friendly as well. We loved the terrace out back with the lawn furniture and all the plants. Especially nice was the off-street gated parking. We enjoyed watching the neighborhood cats and chickens. We felt very safe here and would come back in a heartbeat!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful! The directions by Debbie were easy to follow. Great location, good eats nearby. Convenient commute to French Quarter. Would absolutely stay here again. Neighbors were very friendly. There are roosters that live next door but they are east to tune out.

Very nice home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay for our family. Our boys had an area to play outside, and the house was super clean and well decorated. All the little essentials we forgot, were at the house for us. Short distance from everything we wanted to do was also a plus. We would definitely stay there again if In NOLA.

Not a good choice during the winter

  • 3 of 5

The house is very drafty and uncomfortably cold at night (it was in the low 40s during our stay). The shotgun layout makes this a good choice for couples, but not for more than 2 people otherwise someone is going to wake up everyone else getting to the bathroom. The house is clean and comfortable (other than being very cold at night). The location is very convenient but only if you have a car. This is not a neighborhood you should walk around in at night.

Amazing house, great location

  • 4 of 5

The house was amazing! My friends and I enjoyed our stay here and would even book again. The city is absolutely amazing, good location. Only 7 dollar uber from the French quarter and 10 to bourbon and Frenchmen. There is a cute market down the street with great food. It was one of the best trips we have ever taken. The house was very clean, Debbie and her husband were super helpful and answered any of our questions!

In a Historic residential neighborhood, with local restaurants, bars and local characters. Only about 1 1/2 miles from Frenchmen St. a great place for entertainment, and the French Quarter with not only food and music, but the Aquarium, Insectarium, carriage rides and paddlewheel tours of the Mississpippi. About 2 mi. from Harrah's Casino or the Superdome. About 3 miles to the WW II Museum and the historic Uptown, which can be reached by the streetcar. City Park and the Art Museum are a couples of miles North. Outside of the city. Visit plantations or take a swamp tour.
