What makes this apartment 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 renovating it. 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 intend to live here for a very long time.

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!

Perfect! Charming, very clean, hospitable owner was so friendly and willing to offer great advice!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay! The apartment is beautifully updated and extremely clean! The very friendly, hospitable owner met us upon arrival to show us around the place (she allowed up to check in early so we didn't have to carry luggage around, which was MUCH appreciated!). We had everything that we needed during our stay (we were here for a conference at the convention center). Everything was a quick uber ride away. And there was a convenience store a very close walk away. We could also hop on the streetcar, a block away, for a couple dollars (this was a more leisurely ride, if you're not in a hurry, with all of the stops). Would definitely stay here again!

Garden District apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely apartment in the Garden District. The owners could not have been more kind and accommodating, checking in with us often to make sure we had everything we needed. The apartment is very cool, old, clean and comfortable. It is centrally located for all the activities we enjoyed during our stay. I would love to go back, and stay longer, and would certainly recommend the apartment for anyone wanting a wonderful New Orleans experience.

Perfect apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed for a long weekend and everything was just great. Hideabeds are good quality with ample bedding; lots of towels; kitchen well stocked; great wifi. Corinna was very helpful and made the reservation/arrival process easy. I'd highly recommend this apartment or either of the smaller ones at the front of the house.

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

This rental was in the rear of a camelback shotgun house just two blocks north of the Garden District proper and the St. Charles streetcar line. There was tons to do in walking distance--Magazine street goes on forever with food and shopping, there are sandwich shops nearby, and a chill divey bar just a couple doors down, if that's your thing. Corinna was great, easy to reach, and gave us lots of suggestions when we arrived.

The unit itself was adorable, and bigger than it looks in the pictures! They have also just renovated the kitchen, and the island was a really nice place for our group of four to congregate. We would definitely stay here again.
