The property is centrally located at the edge of the Garden District. It is a two and a half block walk to the streetcar. It is less than two miles from the central business district, the French Quarter, the Superdome, and Magazine Street. There is a great selection of restaurants (fine dining and casual) and cocktail establishments within a four block radius.
Most of all this is not a hotel or a guest house--it is home. It opens the door to everything that New Orleans has to offer a visitor while making you feel that you are surely from here.
My family has lived in Louisiana for about 300 years, dating back to the Cajun Expulsion. We have owned homes in New Orleans for over twenty years, raised our children here, become grandparents here, and truly love living in this wonderful city. We hope and believe that the next thousand generations of Causey’s and Knudsen’s will have a connection to this place that we cherish as it has become a journey both appreciated and worthwhile.
Donya Knudsen purchased this house in 1997
I recall looking for weeks with nothing that really met my expectations. I wondered whether my home as I imagined it did not exist. I finally tried an agent that completely understood. She showed me one property and I knew the moment I walked in the door. My first home is now my guest house. May you feel much as I did at that first viewing many years ago.
This nineteenth century New Orleans home is ideally suited for families and friends who want to enjoy Mardi Gras, French Quarter Festival, Jazz Festival, Saints home games, weddings, and reunions while centrally and comfortably located at the edge of the Garden District. Easy access by streetcar to Audubon Zoo, Parks, Tulane and Loyola Universities, The Superdome, restaurants such as Commander's Palace, Delmonico, and the beautiful veranda at the Columns Hotel. The French Quarter and historic Marigny neighborhoods are only minutes away by streetcar or short taxi ride.
Inside you will find items from Pakistan, Greece, Spain, Indonesia, Korea, Nigeria, Honduras, Scotland, Florida, Texas, and Louisiana. You will find an extensive home library of good books including children’s books.
You will find places to be together as well as plenty of places where you can have privacy. All of the bedrooms are located upstairs including the master suite which enjoys its own bathroom. In addition to a more formal parlor, there is also sun room which is bright and cheerful. The kitchen is fully furnished with modern appliances, and there is a washer and dryer for your convenience. It is comfortable and unique home and we believe you will truly enjoy staying here.
This home has nineteen windows and twelve foot ceilings which give the house an airy comfortable feel. Throughout the home you will find original crown molding, ceiling medallions, and Venetian glass light fixtures. It has two sets of French doors in the sun room that lead out to a private courtyard shaded by a magnificent crepe myrtle, and surrounded by camellias.
This fully furnished home is ideally priced for groups of people requiring more than one room at peak celebration times in the city. The convenience of its location and the bonus associated with the privacy of a home makes this location ideal for groups or families wishing to have a unique experience living as a 'local' New Orleanian.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home!! We appreciated all the hard work that you have put into maintaining and decorating it. And we were very comfortable.
My father had a great time, getting to visit his old neighborhood and the family plot in the cemetery, plus the aquarium, zoo, and insectarium. Our best meal was at Mandinas, and we have several other fine meals.
We hosted a large family Thanksgiving in this home, with seven adults and three children staying in the house and four more adults and three children joining us for dinner and visits during the weekend. The house and the roomy bricked back yard were perfect for our group. We especially appreciated having the downstairs den with a pull-out bed and nearby half bath, as our 98-year-old mother was with us and she was able to stay downstairs. We did not spend much time visiting tourist areas of New Orleans as we visit the city frequently with family there, but the house was located close to those areas. The owners were quite helpful with Thanksgiving arrangements. We would love to return to this house for future Thanksgivings.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The decor gave the house an authentic feel. We relaxed in the back yard, sipping coffee in the mornings. It was an easy walk to the streetcar line. We would stay here again!
Enjoyed the stay very much. This is our second time staying at this property and it was just as comfortable as the first. We look forward to next year.
We rented this really old & beautiful home for our family girls' weekend. We all loved it! So much better than a cramped & noisy hotel experience in the quarter BY FAR (we're from Louisiana, so have all been there & done that & don't feel the need to repeat!) Short 2 block walk to streetcar & it brings you right where you want to be to get started traipsing the French Quarter. Beds were very comfy, plenty of room for the 10 of us, & they had air mattresses available also if we didn't want to share beds. Owners were VERY accommodating & went above & beyond to help us with transportation for my mom to get there from Slidell (huge THANKS!) I definitely recommend this property & I'm keeping it on my faves list for future NOLA trips!
I was truly amazed with this rental! It had everything that we were looking for in the trip including close proximity to the major areas of New Orleans, a very authentic New Orleans style house, and very accommodating hosts!
We could not have been happier with our stay in NoLa. We were a group of 8 and there was more than enough space for us to gather together (both inside and out) as well as have some privacy if needed. The house is a short walk from the shops and whatnot on Magazine St and a quick ride into the French Quarter. Donya and Temple went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed, were comfortable...from having the house stocked with cream and coffee to putting out extra pillows, blankets, and air mattresses (which we didn't even need) they were wonderful hosts. Would definitely recommend to others and stay here again myself.
Located off of St. Charles and Jackson Avenues within walking distance of the street car line; fine and casual dining; jovial drinking establishments; Magazine Street antique shopping; and the Mardi Gras Parade routes. The French Quarter is two miles distant and accessible via the street car that passes several times an hour. The Fair Grounds where the annual Jazz Festival is celebrated is a fifteen minute ride by car or bicycle and additionally accessible by public transport for the more adventurous. The beauty of Audubon and City Parks with access to walking, picknicking, golfing, tennis, and museums is also only a fifteen minute drive by auto. The house is a two story, fully furnished, 1897 side hall victorian with a private patio area in the back. It comfortably sleeps three couples and a single. You will be ideally positioned to fully enjoy New Orleans in the same way that people who live in this wonderful place do.
