About the Owner

I have searched for a second home in this neighborhood for several years. I feel that I have found the perfect location, central to everything you need, and the peacefulness of a safe residential neighborhood. I am extending my home to you when I am not there because it is too beautiful not to share.

Thankful for the Smile House!

We had four generations at the Smile House for Thanksgiving dinner and the race track - a NOLA tradition you must experience if you have not. The house was perfect for all of us, old to young. Plenty of room to spread out and for the kids to play. Well equipped kitchen. Close for everyone to walk to the Quarter, street cars, French Market and a park for the kids. Plenty of free parking, which is sometimes difficult to find. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Jesse was very accommodating. Thanks for having us!!

We stayed at the Smile House for a Girls' Weekend and everyone LOVED it. The house is adorable and a great taste of NOLA architecture. The location could not have been better and Jesse took time to make our stay great. Everyone in the group noted that they'd stay there again!!
