Sabin Bokus purchased this house in 2014
This property represents the charm, architecture, history, romance, color, and vibrant nature of New Orleans, and is so well-located, that it allows one to have the best of all worlds: easy access to work and business, tons of urban fun, and quiet residential repose at the end of the day.
The pocket doors, original floors and molding, expansive porch, and exterior woodwork all allow you to feel like you have been a part of the city for generations, even if you are new to town.
This unit is clean, quaint and was in a perfect location for a convention. Also, just a short walk to the St Charles streetcar, so the rest of the city was quickly accessible. Sabin is a very attentive host.
I stayed here last weekend with my husband and baby, and we had a tremendous time. Sabin is a great host, he graciously accommodated us with early arrival times/late departures, and the house conveniently came with a pack-and-play which was great. It was very clear that Sabin has a lot of love for NOLA and his house- he gave us many great suggestions that we took him up on (Atachafalaya for brunch was amazing, HiVolt breakfast and coffee was likewise great).
We spent four days doing a lot of walking, jumping on and off the St. Charles street car which was conveniently located to the house, saw some great music at the (free!) blues and barbecue festival, walking around garden district, magazine street shops, and through the french quarter- all of which were easily accessible from Annunciation.
We didn't cook but the house was well furnished, and was the perfect size for our little family. Great porch for a glass of wine. I agree with other commenters- being here made us feel like locals.
To add to Sabin's many great suggestions, we would also recommend Pascal Manales on Napoleon (barbecue shrimp!), La Petite Grocery on Magazine, Bakery Bar right up the street (fun cocktails and amazing Doberge cake!), Napoleon House in the quarter (sazaracs and muffulettas!), and a fancy drink at the Hotel Monteleone (rich literary history, awesome carousel bar), and had a great lunch at Turkey and the Wolf on Jackson. Most of this was in walking distance, all was a street car ride away. We did not have a car and had no problem getting around- with a 3 month old in tow!
If you can't tell, we had an amazing time! and loved coming home to Annunciation.
We'll be back! Thank you Sabin,
My family of four have stayed at the Annunciation House twice. We stayed in March 2016 and recently returned for Beyoncé’s World Tour on September 24, 2016. My family agrees this is the best time we’ve had in New Orleans! We have been to New Orleans many times and we’ve gotten so use to the area in the Lower Garden District, this visit we didn’t feel the need to go to Bourbon Street. However, the French Quarter is a quick drive or walk (if you prefer). We walked to the French Quarter our last visit and it wasn’t too bad because we stopped to sight-see along the way which didn’t make our walk seem long. We also walked to the SuperDome from the house. This may sound far, but it’s only a little over a mile and about a 30/40-minute walk which isn’t bad because again you’re taking your time and enjoying the walk and ambiance of New Orleans. We love Magazine Street and we also did a self-guided tour of the Garden District (using a self-guided book from the bookcase at the house)! Also on this trip we hung out on St. Charles Avenue which is calm and laid back. Beyoncé was even seen dining on St. Charles, but we missed running into her by an hour! We enjoyed coffee each morning around the corner at MoJo’s Coffee House (sooooo glad to have a coffee shop so close to the house). We had lunch at Poseidon on St. Charles, smoothies from HoneyDuex on Magazine Street and we also dined at a Vietnamese restaurant on Magazine Street. What I also enjoy about the house is there’s a full kitchen. I cooked dinner one night and breakfast each morning before we headed out. Anything that we needed or may have forgotten for the trip we were able to go right around the corner to Walmart to get. I’m always concerned with parking in New Orleans, but parking at the house is not an issue at all. There are always plenty of parking spaces available and we are always able to park right in front of the house! The house also has a courtyard in the back and it’s beautiful with a fountain and a string of lights that come on at night. I also enjoy sitting on the front porch which makes the experience feel even more like home! As mentioned we have stayed twice, but this time we really got to know and enjoy the community so much so that we feel like locals! I highly recommend this house and location. It’s great for all --- families, couples, girl’s getaways, guy getaways, etc. You’ll really feel at home!
I can't believe it took me almost a year to realize I didn't write a review for this awesome apartment. I stayed here a year ago, when I was in New Orleans for a wedding. It was just my husband, our baby daughter and me. Sabin was so accommodating (even lending us a pack and play for the baby) and helpful with stuff to do, and places to see! The apartment was awesome...and the neighborhood was perfect. We really enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay again.
The property was lovely and had everything we needed. It was in a great location - very close to Magazine Street and also walking/biking distance from the French Quarter. It was nice to feel like a local and get a non-French Quarter New Orleans experience. Sabin was helpful and checked in to make sure we had everything. I would absolutely recommend staying here.
Are you kidding? Everything in New Orleans!
Call me! I will help you discover it all!
