About the property

Five bedrooms, four baths - sleeps up to 16

Enjoy the Gumbo YaYa in the heart of the Quarter! This XL space is a 2,800 sq ft, very ample condo with five bedrooms, four baths, two full kitchens, two laundry rooms with washer/tumble dryer and and views of the French Quarter skyline. An architecturally unique space, it is part of a rehabilitated warehouse built in the early 20th century. There are many brick walls throughout the apartment and the large industrial windows overlook the rooftops of the French Quarter.

The apartment is furnished with beds enough to sleep up to 16 guests and the style is colorful and eclectic, very much like the Big Easy! It will most definitely be a unique New Orleans experience! There are six TV's in the apartment: a 32' LCD flat screens in each of the four bedrooms, a 50' LCD flatscreen in the living room, and a 55" TV in the crazy and comfy "dorm" room. Both kitchens are fully outfitted with dishes, pots and pans, coffee makers, toaster ovens, etc, and each has a built-in microwave, full-size fridge with a great ice-maker, and full-size electric stove. All four bathrooms have shower-over-tub configurations.

Many world-famous restaurants are just steps from the apartment and the entire French Quarter is just outside the gates. The Canal Street Streetcar is just a block away and will take you all over the downtown area, as well as out to City Park and connects to the St. Charles line which takes you Uptown to the Garden District.

Bourbon Street is literally steps away (75 ft) and shopping on world-famous Royal Street is only two blocks away. Frenchmen St is an easy walk at 12 blocks down river, and you'll have lots to see along the way. The Mississippi River is just six blocks away, as well as the Aquarium, the Canal Street ferry (a delightful and inexpensive way to cross the Mighty Mississippi to Old Algiers Point), Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, and much, much more. There is a cool little grocery store only six blocks away that carries many locally made foods, and corners stores abound throughout the Quarter where you can pick up liquor and mixers, snacks and toiletries. No car needed!

After the days' tours and trips around town, bar-hopping and foodie forays, you can come "home" to a spacious, comfortable, cool and quiet spot to relax, unwind, share your adventures, and get a good night's sleep so you can get up and do it all over again!

It was clean, inviting and had really great lighting for pictures!

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place by Bourbon St. for my bachlorette party and came across this gem! I had dozen girls, so it was crucial that we had a place to party, but also 2 separate apartments to keep us apart when we needed a little R&R. This was the perfect solution and had plenty of space for everyone! Even after we all spent time on the rooftop pool, no one had to fight over showers. We easily rotated in and out.

You'll see this in all of the other reviews, but I can't stress enough how accommodating Elizabeth was - even when I changed plans on her or asked her if one of the girls in the group could check in early so that she wasn't wandering the french quarters alone. She communicates in a timely manner and gives very specific instructions on checking in and out.

Overall, the girls and I shared amazing memories on the property and I am so lucky to have found it.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the space and yourselves! The Gumbo YaYa is set up to comfortably accommodate a group just like yours, so everyone has plenty of room and privacy, but also a spacious common area to gather and enjoy being together. Loved having you and hope you'll visit again soon!

Great condo in a cool building near Bourbon Street

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property and plan to come back another time. The condo is fantastic in a secure building with a rooftop pool. One minute walk to Bourbon Street (near the Bourbon Cowboy). The owner was very easy to work with too!

Amazing Location, Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Gumbo Ya Ya was perfect for our group of 12 women ready to take on the French Quarter! The building is literally around the corner from the best of Bourbon Street-- the location could not have been more perfect. The owner and the property manager are responsive and attentive, and the property itself is beautiful, spacious, safe, and clean. In addition to convening in the large living room, our group enjoyed the access to the building's rooftop deck. We all had an incredible time and will never forget our stay at Gumbo Ya Ya!

Awesome Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I led a group of guys, many of whom were visiting New Orleans for the first time. The setup and design of these apartments was absolutely perfect. To top it off, the location (steps from Bourbon) was even better!

We also had great weather one afternoon and were able to take advantage of the complex's rooftop pool - it felt like a private pool as nobody else was there at the time.

I spent hours searching the available listings and highly recommend you book this ASAP. It was even better than advertised - the pictures (although nice) don't even do it the proper justice. The Owner and property manager were also extremely responsive and easy to work with.
