Downtown House Rental Photos and Description

UPSTAIRS BALCONY 4BR/2BA (7 Queens, 2 twins) OR

DOWNSTAIRS 3BR/2BA (5 Queens, 4 Twins)




SORRY, NO early check-ins, or early-arrival baggage storage.

We are on a peaceful family residential block that happens to be steps from everything. We have children and families living there, the fruit and vegetable carts calling out every morning. We seek travelers welcome to be a part of that but not disrespect it with noise and disruption. We are not for everyone, but we are very very special. Foodies, families, Girls weekends, Reunions. Beautiful complete rebuild of an historic 1840s New Orleans home. 4 blocks to Bourbon but retire to a peaceful beautifully renovated oasis.

The lower level has 12 ft high ceilings. We have been doing vacation rentals for 4 years but have just completed the complete renovation of this property October 1, 2013. We had several bookings before we were listed and photos were taken. It is an amazing experience in a fantastic location, steps from Storyville, Congo Square, Louis Armstrong Park, and Cafe du Monde is a 10 minute stroll. We are 4 blocks from Bourbon Street.

About Dave Richard, Manager

I used to be a travel journalist and believe the best way to experience a place is to live in a real neighborhood.

Dave Richard, Manager purchased this house in 2013

Why Dave Richard, Manager chose Downtown

There is simply nothing remotely like it anywhere in the city. This is NOT a shotgun where you walk through each others bedrooms, in fact the bedrooms and bathrooms are massive by any standard. This is for the travelers who enjoy quiet at the end of a long day or night out on the town. SORRY, NO early check-ins, or early-arrival baggage storage.

What makes this house unique

QUIET just a stones throw from the heart of the city. Huge rooms, peace and quiet, a real neighborhood on the edge of all the tourism and noise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was so lucky to find this wonderful home. The home is renovated down to the last nail and it is lovely. This also means very clean, a biggie for me. The rooms are spacious, the windows let in lovely light throughout the day and the amenities are top notch. The location is ideal for the French Quarter and Marigny, really it is convenient to the whole town as it is located near bus service and the street car. A little walking might be in store to some locations, but its good to work off all the good food and drink! I had a rental car and was able to park in front of the house every day of the 30 I stayed. The linens are lovely and very clean. The kitchen is stocked with new dishes and cookware. There is a sweet, brand new laundry set up as well. Dave was the icing on the cake! He is a hardworking, patient, charismatic darling! He took care of all my needs very quickly. There was never an unanswered text or phone call. He ensured that I was well versed on the town as well. I got a locals guide straight from him! He is very particular about his guests and we had an in depth conversation before I rented to ensure I was the kind of person he wanted in his property. This is in a neighborhood and each resident expects respect of their personal privacy and comfort regarding noise and traffic. This is understandable and makes the location even more desirable for safety reasons as well as general warmth in spirit! As a single woman I felt safe and at ease on this 'up and coming' neighborhood street. A few families, lots of young couples and late 20, early 30 kinds of neighbors. I could not say more about this apartment. I will always look back fondly on my time (a whole month) in this apartment. Good memories and good sleep!

Closer to the action than we thought; which was a great thing!!

  • 4 of 5

The inside of this home was very clean and inviting. We rented the entire house giving us all a little privacy while still keeping our group together. There were plenty of clean towels. We really didn't take full advantage of this home as we were working most of the week and out entertaining clients at night. The neighborhood is undergoing renovations however it is very quiet. The walk to the French Quarter is a very short one and as in all larger cities always use the buddy system when out and about. Any time we had any questions they were quickly answered... thank you!! Oh, and if you need transportation to and from the Airport or anywhere else for that matter we recommend Eric he was prompt, reliable and personable. We would rent this home again especially with a group as large as we are.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us. I know you didn't have a lot of time because of your work project to enjoy the city, but I"m glad we kept you close to the action and I'm glad you enjoyed the deck area.

Awesome Trip: Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 23 people, consisting of related families. We rented all four units. The rental were exactly as advertised and the home was perfect in amenities and location. Immaculate and clean. The property manager and owner were fantastic throughout the process. The first night there, we yucked it up with the wonderful woman and her children who clean and maintain the property. Very nice. We then walked two blocks to Buffa's, a neighborhood bar/restaurant. Wow. Live music, great food. We ended up eating there three times. You can walk into the french quarter from the property. It was a great launching point for our cemetery tour, the ghost tour, etc. We had a short drive (couple minutes) to the Cafe Du Mond, Creole Queen (Mississippi River boat tour) and the aquarium. The house is so close to the french quarter that the Swamp Tour/Plantation Tour (Tours by isabel that we did (awesome!) picked us up at the house although they normally will only pick up from French Quarter hotels. Some of the adults in the party walked into the French Quarter/Bourbon Street party scene during several of the nights.

Lot of towels, refrigerators, wash machines and dryers, etc. Cool backyard hangout with a hammock. just an excellent family/group pad to based your New Orleans adventure.

Oh yeah, there is an awesome little park for families and kids to spend some time in. Fully fenced, cool playground stuff, grass, trees, etc. and it is just a few blocks walking distance away. Its called Cabrini Park.

Owner's Response: I cannot tell you how much it means to get a review this wonderful. We pour SO much love into what we do, and work SO hard, and doing this on this scale is SO much more difficult than anyone would imagine. So when a guest really gets it, we aren't just selling a house, but an experience of living in the city, or of staying with a friend who knows the city well, combined with complete independence. That means the world to us and I cannot tell you how much that energizes us to keep doing what we do.

Great location, easy booking, A+ apt

  • 5 of 5

Dave was very easy to work with, fast to respond, and accommodating to requests.

Location was great - about a 10-15 min walk from major parts of the quarter so quiet but accessible.

Apt was very clean, clearly new, spacious, comfortable and GREAT outdoor spaces.

Would highly recommend!!

Good location, clean comfortable accommodations

  • 4 of 5

We rented a one bedroom and a two bedroom unit for a three generation family gathering. It was an easy walk to the Quarter and the Marigny, with food, music, and all the delights of New Orleans. We used a car for grocery shopping and trips to City Park, the Zoo, and further out in the Bywater. The units are simply and comfortably appointed, if a bit Spartan. We appreciated the in-unit laundry machines and keyless security. The property manager was friendly and responsive.

bachelorette weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Great hosts, awesome house! Walking distance to the French Quarter, Bourbon Street, Frenchman Street, great restaurants, and a few small convenience stores.

We had a small snafu with the coffee pot, but Shinda was amazing and replaced it in no time at all! We occupied Units 3 & 4 for nine ladies and it was very comfortable and clean.

I would definitely recommend the hosts and the house!!
