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.

Perfect location for Bachelor party!!

  • 5 of 5
The house was simply perfect!! We had a group of 10 guys for a bachelor party and everyone fit comfortably. The location could not be any better. We were 1 block from Frenchman street where we spent most of our time and a short walk to the French Quarter. Also Iggy's is the best, small local 24hr bar right on the corner of the block, it was the start and end to our days, we even had a dog walk in and hop on a seat at the bar 1 day all the locals said he come there all the time. Jesse was very helpfully and provided all the info we needed I can't say enough about how great this place was and everyone was talking about it for weeks after. Will absolutely stay here again our next time in NOLA!!!

This house is AMAZING!!!! It fit all ten of us no problem. I was a little worried about the distance, but it was within walking distance of everything. We didn't use a cab once. Every kept talking abou the showers, how it's prob the best shower we had. I absolutely loved New Orleans and will be back down for some sightseeing! Thank you for opening up your home to us.

Great time at the Smile House

  • 5 of 5
Went to New Orleans for the Rock N Roll Marathon and this place was perfect for the four of us. Not as noisy as the French Quarter and just a short stroll from everything. (Don't get me wrong, there is still some late night and early morning street noise, but it is New Orleans). Jesse provides everything you could ask for - just stop and get a few groceries and you're good to go. Also highly recommend Horn's Restaurant and The Ruby Slipper - both are very close by.
