Property Details

Updated: Nov 13, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms + 3 Convertible bed(s),3 Baths (Sleeps 1-12)

Great location Uptown 4 blocks from St. Charles streetcar and vibrant up-and-coming Freret Street. Plenty to see, do, and eat within walking distance!

Central location and quiet Uptown neighborhood provide the perfect base for exploring New Orleans. All major sites within 5 to 15 minutes traffic permitting. Accommodations available for smaller parties, please inquire.

Owner and artist occupied, this stylish Victorian shotgun has been featured on design blogs, in creative photo shoots and advertising campaigns, and is currently showcased in the recently released gorgeous interiors book “House Proud:Unique Home Design, Louisiana” by Valorie Hart.

Lush gardens and ample yard space ensure privacy for both guests and owner alike. Guest quarters include the back half of the main house and the studio loft. With a private entrance and dedicated guest patio by the pool you'll feel like you have the whole place to yourselves.

From the private garden path, enter the main house directly into the living room. This part of your rental has a full kitchen, living room with a flat screen TV and queen pullout sofa sleeper, 2 full bathrooms, and 2 bedrooms. Each bedroom is a queen, has a flat screen TV and french doors opening out to the back patio. One of these 2 bedrooms also has twin trundle beds that can convert into a king, and an en suite full bathroom with a stand alone shower and whirlpool tub. This part of the house sleeps 8.

The third bedroom is a queen in the studio which is a separate building that closely dovetails the back of the house. The bed is in a sleeping loft located up easily navigable stairs. The living room below has the other queen sleeper sofa, additional seating, a flat screen TV, walk-in closet, and a fold out table that seats 6. Through another well appointed kitchen you’ll find the third bathroom with a roomy shower, W/D, and a door to the guest patio.

The gardens and private patio provide the perfect space to entertain small parties or just to simply relax. There is seating for 4-6 at a dining table, and another conversational seating area accommodating 5-6. Seating and linens for larger parties available, please inquire.

Cooking in or out is easy with 2 well appointed kitchens and the gas grill. Accessories like food tents, pitchers, and melamine plates keep the party rolling. Seasonal herbs such as rosemary, mint, oregano, and basil are typically available in the old sink planter by the apartment door to add fresh flavors to both food and drink. When in season, Meyer lemons, Kumquats and Blood oranges abound and will be made available in fruit baskets by the herbs.

Off the back patio through a gated entrance is the shared pool with the owner. Recently added, the pool is a gorgeous 50 foot stretch of gentle mineral waters, the latest in pool chemical technologies. Pool hours will vary according to season and owner’s schedule, but usually will be available from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

About the Owner

I have been living in New Orleans since '98 and can't imagine calling another place home. I love to travel, but the best part of that is knowing I am coming back here. I work as an artist, designer, and avid gardener. I consider my home and gardens one of my best works yet...enjoy!

A Great Place for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
My extended family's annual reunion took place in New Orleans over three days. The Jena Street location was very comfortable, very well supplied with both necessities and little extras, very clean and worked well for us. The neighborhood is very accessible, and there are plenty of options for dining or taking out.
The rental was decorated very pleasantly as well. The only minor issue was there are so many items in the main living areas of the units, it's a little hard to find space to put extra luggage, equipment, toys, etc. Two or three less small furniture items would make for more comfortable space.
The owner was very responsive to all my questions prior to arrival, and very helpful while we were there as well. A rare double lot property with plenty of amenetiies in New Orleans.

Owner's Response: I am always glad to hear suggestions and feedback, and I appreciate my guests taking the time to let me know how I can make their stay more comfortable. This review confirms the sneaking suspicion I've had for some time that I need to get those fold away suitcase racks! And I've also seen some potentially handy over-the-door clothing hangers that I will look into that could help with hanging items.

As it stands, each unit has 4 or more drawers for placing items in, an antique wardrobe (not the most spacious of options, but does the trick for most!) or a double sliding door closet. Over each of the washers are open shelves where luggage can be stashed, but they are hard to reach without a ladder. Under the beds or behind the living room sofa in the apartment has been a popular spot for people to store things, but I will certainly look into a better, more accessible solution.

NOLA home for you!

  • 4 of 5
Great place for our sister reunion! Miranda provides a comfortable home setting with privacy, and all the extra little things that make you feel at home. We enjoyed coffee on the patio by the pool, and gathering in living room for late night gab fests. Her home is located in quiet neighborhood, with good access to public transport. (Note: St. Charles Avenue trolley is under repair in this area, but you can use bus provided to link to trolley stop at Napoleon Avenue.)

Owner's Response: Always happy to hear my guests have had a good time!

As of 6/11/14, the St. Charles streetcar line ( 4 blocks from my house) is undergoing extensive renovations that just can't be done soon enough. I would recommend that any travelers to New Orleans check the city's website www.norta.com for up to date information on what portions of the line are closed. As the guest stated, buses link functioning parts of the line together, so you can still get where you need to go.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay. The property's layout is exactly as pictured and even more charming in person. Miranda was a very accommodating hostess, especially considering we were bachelorette party. The street cars were very accessible to everywhere we wanted to go and a quick cab to the airport. We all agreed that given the chance we would stay here again.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Jena Street Social Club could not have been better. The pictures and descriptions in the listing were spot on. We occupied both the house and the back apartment; suiting our needs perfectly and loved the "quirkiness" of the properties.The house was furnished so well and well stocked; plenty of amenities from the kitchen to the bathroom. We really did not need to bring anything, but our clothes with us. Miranda was most helpful in giving us suggestions of restaurants in the area. Our location was close to Magazine Street, the Quarter, St. Charles; really a great location. We would love to stay there again. Thanks so much, Miranda!!

Gorgeous place and perfect accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
One of my best friends found this place for a girls weekend for her birthday. The entire property was so beautiful and perfect. We all thought that this was the best stocked place we have ever stayed at - great accommodations! The owner is a local artist that has taken a lot of care in decorating the entire property. We were able to park right outside. She was very helpful when one of our friends needed to keep her luggage there after we checked out. I can't recommend this place enough for anyone going to New Orleans. I am going back in April and am very sad that the place is already completely booked - but I am not surprised!
