About the Owner

I have 12 properties that are vacation rental- the others are in Austin and Wimberley TX. I am a licensed Realtor, and love this business. I remodel older homes for a living--restoring beautiful old homes is very important to me, and there are plenty here in New Orleans.

Awesome trip

This was a great place to celebrate a milestone birthday - not to mention Southern Decadence. The penthouse was comfortable, artsy and a great space to have fun. I would highly recommend this place!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
I had a group of people that stayed here and at the Gypsy House. They are an upstairs and downstairs unit. Both are great places to stay, but If I had to choose a favorite, I would say the Penthouse, due to the Outdoor Balcony. It was a great experience and I'd be more than happy to stay in both places again.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5
A group of 5 guys ventured from Austin to NO for the weekend and had a great time. After looking over a few places to stay we decided on this place and it was perfect. It's close to the quarter but not too close. This property lets you feel like a local in a cool trendy neighborhood with all kinds of hidden gems to be discovered. We did brunch and city walking by day then looked forward to our favorite neighborhood bar Mimi's to cap it off. This property is so cool and has a great feel. The owner was very nice and informative of some local spots to check out. Thanks Carrie!! I have been to NO many of times and felt this time I got to see and do things that were new to me. There is a great restaurant Elizabeth's that serves great soul food and appetizers of praline bacon. YESSSS! Coffee shops and a grocery store are right around the corner. It's very easy to love this property and neighborhood while staying. The place has all the essentials for cooking and hanging out. The balcony is a great place to have a drink and a cigar. I have told many people of this place and next time I come to NO I will definitely stay here again. Do yourself a favor stay here and enjoy this beautiful city.

Family of 5 visiting from Oakland, California

Had a very nice time. Enjoyed New Orleans and found the second floor Penthouse both accommodating and relaxing. Overall unit space allowed for much togetherness but ample space to not trip over one another. Plenty of towels and unit was clean with kitchen ware available for use. Air conditioning was perfect as it was 90 + outside and humid. Loved the deck. Lots of food options near by- discovered just by walking the area. Was concerned initially that 10 plus blocks away from French Qtr might be too far, but it was perfect.

I had a fantastic time turning 50 in New Orleans. Clichéd? Yeah slightly, but so what. The photos don’t do the place justice, it really is incredible. Amazing kitchen; even had everything for morning coffee kicking around with a great balcony to drink it on. Free parking and tons of it in a gorgeous, friendly, safe and peaceful neighborhood. Mardi Gras Zone so handy around the corner for all kinds of food supplies, open 24 hours and super friendly. Schiro’s was only a step away for take home beer and wine. We went almost entirely with Carrie’s recommendations and we are so glad we did. All were welcoming, free-pouring and delicious.
Elizabeth’s…I’ve been here before years ago and it was even better than I remembered. Stellar Bloody Marys and the praline bacon has gotta be tried.
Cake Café and Bakery…crazy way of service, you wait in line to order and then arrive at your table around the same time the food is ready, totally worth it once you figured out how it worked. You can bring in a Bloody Mary from nearby Friendly’s bar if you crave or need one.
Bacchanal Fine Wine and Spirits…Had a truly enchanted evening here. So glad for this recommendation since it didn’t really appear anywhere else. You walk into the most fantastic wine store with really helpful staff, buy a couple of great bottles, pick some cheese, grab some glasses and head out to a courtyard totally decked out in fairy lights, a live band and amazing tapas from the snack bar. Try the baby octopus. So nice to be somewhere they were in no hurry to get you to leave. We took a couple of bottles back with us too.
R Bar. We went to a ton of bars along Frenchman on Friday night, had a great time, then turned a corner and found R Bar. We all loved this place, a dream neighborhood bar. I met a really great dog on the barstool next to me and left hugging strangers.
Satsuma-We needed something a bit healthier for the long trip home-this was really lovely. Pineapple ginger lemonade was the ultimate hangover remedy. Of course now I imagine how everything could taste with a shot of booze…I must learn to recreate this to try it with tequila.
We can’t wait to come back and stay here again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS.

Fantastic rental

  • 5 of 5
Just got back to Seattle after staying in the upper unit of this property over the weekend with a group of friends. Everyone commented that they couldn't have been happier with the rental. Great house in a really interesting part of the city. Walking through the Marginy gives you the quintessential feel of New Orleans. Additionally, we were able to walk easily to the French Quarter. Would definitely consider staying here again. Thanks very much, Carrie.
