High-End Creole Mansion in the heart of downtown

Bedrooms 4
Property type house


About the property

A classic example of Southern architecture, our meticulously restored home lies in the heart of New Orleans, on the quiet edge of the French Quarter and nearby the Marigny, Bywater and other downtown destinations. We have not spared any detail so we hope you enjoy! Perfect for groups looking for an upscale experience but with NOLA personality.

Step inside our gorgeous single family home. The entire double shotgun has been converted to a spacious single-family estate and updated with the latest amenities. Features that distinguish this property include soaring 14’ ceilings, re-finished heart of pine floors, original crown moldings, 19th century pocket doors, and many more. Mid-century modern meets baroque, with various oddities interspersed. We showcase items that we’ve collected locally and from around the world.

This spacious home offers four luxurious bedrooms – one bedroom with a California king bed, one bedroom with a double bed, and two bedrooms with queen beds. Each has an adjacent or en-suite bathroom, with standup rain showers and large soaking tubs. Two daybeds provide very comfortable accommodations. Plus, an additional two twin beds can be set up in the bedrooms or common areas. All beds, including the extras, feature Casper or Tempur-pedic mattresses, down or down alternative duvets and pillows, and silky high thread count sheets.

The common spaces were designed for entertaining and provide more than ample space for well over a dozen people. The living and dining areas are large and open, with an ever-so-inviting Restoration Hardware linen sofa, multiple arm chairs, and a 60” Smart LCD television loaded with Netflix, Hulu, etc. The Chef’s kitchen suits any occasion, with butcher block and marble counters, top-of-the-line appliances, and service for many guests. Higher-tech features include monitored alarm system, blazing-fast Wifi, and highly effective central air conditioning.

Finally, the patio and outdoor spaces offer a respite for group meals and relaxation following long days exploring New Orleans. We have hosted Crawfish boils and other events with over 20 guests in this space, and it is the perfect setting to relax and pass time during warm New Orleans evenings.

We have put significant time, energy, and heart into designing the perfect space. We hope you enjoy and respect it.

You will be smack dab in the center of the New Orleans action, yet on a quaint, tranquil side street. Our home is located on the northern edge of the French Quarter in the historic, world-famous Treme, 3-4 blocks from Burgundy. This is a safe, friendly, and laid-back area.

In our immediate environs and within close walking distance are some of the best bars and restaurants in New Orleans. From old school dive bars to cool new cocktails, BBQ to Boudin, tasty slices of both pizza and pie, it's all available nearby.

Our home is directly next to the French Quarter. We are within a 10 minute walk to all the major downtown sites in the Quarter and Frenchman St. The Marigny/Bywater is also reachable by walking, biking, or Uber.

Check-in is anytime after 3:00pm and check-out is no later than 11:00am. We have to firmly keep to these times, as our housekeeping staff requires ample time to prepare for your arrival. If helpful, you may drop your bags off as early as 1:30pm on day of check-in, or you may store your luggage until 12:30pm on day of check-out.

Payment is due in full at time of booking (no deposits or holds). VRBO retains a separate security deposit in escrow which is fully refundable.

We want guests to relax completely and enjoy themselves, but also to be respectful of our home, which we have put so much care and attention into. Please be mindful of our neighbors by keeping noise to a normal level, especially when coming and going in the early morning and late night. No smoking anywhere in the home, and please no extra guests. And while we love pets, we unfortunately don't allow them here.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a convention. This property was conveniently located to the French Quarter and Convention Center. It was very spacious and beautifully decorated and designed. The owners were easy to deal with as well. We had a wonderful time.

Nothing short of amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house was nothing short of amazing! The inside is something out of a magazine. The beds were the most comfortable things we've ever slept on. The kitchen is completely updated and huge. We had many nights spent all together talking and cooking in there. The master bathroom and tub were unreal. We all came for a work event as well as my partner's birthday. The house was so beautiful and comfortable that we even canceled our plans to go out so we could stay in and enjoy this amazing mansion. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay right by the quarter in one of the most beautifully decorated places.

Incredible home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this place justice. We spent the first 20 minutes just wandering around as we were in awe of this house. The art is incredible and every accessory fits perfectly. The beds were heavenly, we need to find the manufacturer. There were 13 of us and we fit comfortably with room to spare. Location also could not have been better - close walk to Jackson Square, Bourbon St., but also to Frenchman area. We would stay here again in a heartbeat when we return to NOLA.
