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.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
This was my sister-in-law's first trip to NOLA & I was looking for a special place to stay. I certainly found such a place in the Smile House.

The accommodations were wonderful. Jesse was exceedingly flexible with the scheduling & all the communication went without a hitch.

Great house for a group!

  • 5 of 5
We booked the Smile House for a bachelorette weekend for a group of six ladies. The house was spacious, clean, and within walking distance to all of the fun! We would definitely book the house again, under the condition that we add a day since we ran out of time for all the things we wanted to do.

As far as parking, there was a mix-up at the car rental facility and we ended up with a GMC Yukon (i.e. a giant bus); I was worried we wouldn't be able to park it on the narrow streets of New Orleans, but we had no trouble getting a space right in front of the house upon our arrival and when we returned from a day of shopping in Uptown.

Smile House "Perfect" in every way!

Nothing but good things to say about this place, location and its owner. We took our daughter and couple friends and family members NOLA for my daughters 21st birthday. It is just enough away from Bourbon St. to escape the madness and yet a short enough walk to make it home if you have consumed a couple adult beverages. Jesse, the electronic door lock is a great added feature. It was wonderful not having to deal with keys and very easy to use. I will definately be promoting this place and next time I travel to NOLA this is where I will be staying.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5
I would definitely recommend this home for a weekend get away to New Orleans, the house is gorgeous! Everything was so clean and equipped with anything that you may need. The master bathroom and it's shower is so spacious along with the rest of the house which decorated beautifully. The walk to bourbon street and the French Quarter isn't bad at all. I would definitely stay here again if I made another trip to New Orleans.

Bachelorette Weekend

  • 4 of 5
We had an awesome time. Great location and great amenities without the huge cost. The ability to prepare meals and socialize where we were staying was a huge plus in cutting down costs as well. Everyone in the party enjoyed the accommodations.

Smiling about my stay at the Smile House.

  • 5 of 5
The Smile house is named as such because of the resemblance of a smile on the front facade of the house. The house has been nicely remodeled with nice features. The owner Jesse is very helpful and you can tell he really loves Nola and his home. The air conditioning keeps the house a nice temperature that is a life saver after stumbling around the French Quarter. It s a short walk to both just as the listing states. It comfortably slept my entire entourage of 6 people comfortably. Having two full bathrooms were a big plus.
