What makes this condo unique

Our home is an historic shotgun camelback double built in 1861. Somewhere down the line it was converted into a 4 plex but it still retains many of the architectural flourishes that make New Orleans homes so charming. We love this old house and have been slowly restoring it to its original beauty. The neighborhood is perfect for us; we're a block from the Garden District streetcar stop, walking distance to so much, and our neighbors are wonderful. We enjoy this property immensely and love to share it with our guests.

Two thumbs up for Camelback!

  • 5 of 5

Camelback was the perfect apartment for our stay in New Orleans. It was centrally located for all our planned events. Being only a block fro St Charles Ave we were able to hop on the trolley whenever we wanted. The apartment was charming and exceptionally clean. The three levels offered people privacy when they wanted and the lowere level was a fun gathering place. The beds were most comfortable. Corinna went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Her home was well stocked with everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again and have already highly recommended it to others.

Hope to come back soon!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family to stay while in New Orleans. We took the trolley to the French Quarter a couple times and walked around the neighborhoods in the Garden District and enjoyed one delicious meal after another. The location was perfect and the owner was wonderful to work with. The house was generously stocked, immaculately cleaned and beautifully decorated. Our three kids loved the three levels and, in particular, our little guy claimed the little nook under the stairs to the third-floor bedroom as his own hide out. The beds were really comfortable and the bedrooms were cozy and bright. Since were were staying over Easter weekend, we had a fun Easter egg hunt in the little courtyard outside. The flowering bush next to the table was in full bloom and the scent was so lovely. There were so many thoughtful gestures from the time of check-in until we checked-out, which made our stay extra special. We hope to come back soon!

Perfect location for Mardi Gras

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four with two young children stayed here over Mardi Gras weekend. Being only a block and a half from St. Charles Ave, it was the perfect location to see all the Uptown parades while also convenient to the Magazine St. shops and restaurants. We did not have to drive anywhere almost our whole stay - everything we needed was within walking distance. The apartment was very charming, nicely renovated, and exceptionally clean. It was also much more spacious than it looked in the photos. We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Camelback guesthouse and would definitely come back again. Corinna, the owner, was very helpful and attentive. She even left us a king cake which was a great extra touch!

Great location for New Orleans Vacation:

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to New Orleans with our adult children - 6 of us in all. This was a great place to be the home base for our vacation - close to the St. Charles streetcar, the Magazine Street restaurant/shopping district area, and a short Uber ride to the French Quarter. The house was ample for our needs, whether we wanted to all be together for activities or if anyone wanted a little privacy. It was very clean, offered all the amenities we needed (and the corner store across the street was very convenient). The hosts provided us with information on local attractions, and the basket of goodies upon our arrival was a very nice touch! We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it to others.

Wonderful stay with 2 toddlers.

  • 5 of 5

I travelled to NO with my 2 young kids, and the house was great-- lots of space, and close to the St-Charles streetcar (which the kids loved). Hosts kindly provided a pack n play and high chair.

Highly recommended!

Charming, And A Great Value!

  • 4 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our 5-night stay here - the layout gave everyone their own space, yet plenty of room to gather together and eat, talk and reminisce. The home is old, nicely renovated and absolutely clean. We felt safe in the area, whether walking the 1.5 blocks to the St. Charles streetcar, or the 9-10 blocks to Magazine Street for food and shopping. The owners were pleasant and personable, and very responsive. We usually had no problems finding parking close by - all-in-all a very pleasant stay!
