About the Owner

I moved to New Orleans in 1993 to attend Tulane University. And the City that Care Forgot wasted no time sucking me in. As a young man, my Uptown neighborhood met my every want and need - a half block from Mardi Gras, a quick stumble to some of the best live music in the city at Tipitina's and Le Bon Temps, fine eats at Dick and Jenny's, and plenty of libations within striking distance. Now I am older, with three children, and though my needs have changed the neighborhood still provides - ice cream at the Creole Creamery, snowballs at Hansen's Sno-Bliz, two playgrounds, a children's library, and pizza. And of course Mardi Gras.

I have moved three times in the last 15 years. Never more than 6 blocks.

Amazing little quaint place!

  • 5 of 5
I'm originally from New Orleans, but the experience of living uptown makes me almost want to move back.
First of all the owners were very accommodating to letting us check in and check out at any time of the day if allowing. There were 4 girls so the 2 bathrooms were a plus!! Everyone loved the place and every art piece and furniture just added its own flare that reflected this quaint house.
The location is very accessible to downtown, Metairie, and chalmette even. Parking was so easy in front of the house at all times of the day, even 2 am.

The kitchen was well supplied with utensils if needed. Blankets and pillows were available for everyone. Towels were a bit rough on the skin, but better than nothing. Needed more face towels, but no big deal.

They had shampoo, conditioner, and a hair dryer to use. Wish they had some shower gel and hand soap in the kitchen. Cleaning supplies and a washer dryer are available if needed.
2 bed, a futon, and a couch were more than enough for 4 people. We prob could have fit 7 girls.

This was such a great place to rent and would love to come back and I'd definitely recommend to anyone else wanting a great place to stay uptown.

My husband and I stayed with our three year old and 14 month old (and my sister-in-law and brother came and stayed one night.) I highly recommend the property for families with children. We walked across the street for a delicious and easy lunch at Frankie and Johnny's. The walk to the zoo was a little longer than I anticipated, but not bad if you are used to walking around cities. Loved having two grocery stores nearby, it made dinner easy. The arrangement of the rooms was great. I put the baby to sleep in the back room closet (which is large enough for the pack-n-play) and the rest of us were able to stay up and visit without waking her. There is also a gas station in walking distance that we used to grab some late night beverages once the kids went to sleep. Parking was always available right in front which made getting kids in and out of the car easy. While you can get around without a car, it's easier with one. There is a great neighborhood park a few blocks away. We visited it two afternoons between dinner and bed time and my kids made friends with some locals while I visited with their parents. I highly recommend this house for a vacation to Nola with small children. There was even a pack-n-play! The owner gave great suggestions for things to do and how to get around. We will definitely be using the home again on our next visit!

Thank you...Again!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have enjoyed staying here for the past two years for a months time. We enjoyed having Audubon Park, Whole Foods, restaurants on Magazine, and Frankie and Johnnies walking distance from the house. The owner keeps this and his other neighboring properties impeccable. He lives in Uptown, loves the city, and takes pride in his properties! Believe me, it shows!

In closing, we won't be renting next year because we have bought a home in Uptown. The silver lining is that the owner will now be a wonderful neighbor!

Great for Mardi Gras!!!

  • 5 of 5
We all really enjoyed staying in this lovely house. It comfortably slep 6 adults. It was very clean and had everything we needed. It is a fair way from the French Quarter but we didn't mind this as we caught taxis in. It was a great location for Mardi Gras as we could watch the Thoth parade from the front porch like a local!

This Uptown property is a stone's throw away from dining, drinking, shopping, merry-making, and Mardi Gras. Enjoy alligator pies washed down with Abita Amber at Frankie and Johnny's, just across the street. One block away is Dos Jefe's Cigar bar, which has a cozy patio area. Traveling with kids? Audubon Park and the Audubon Zoo are just 10 blocks away. The park also sports a par-3 golf course, a swimming pool, basketball courts, soccer fields, a jogging trail, and scenic views of the Mississippi River. If you fancy a quiet night in, there are two grocery stores within 3 blocks - Whole Foods and Winn-Dixie. Magazine Street provides ample dining and late night opportunities. Some of the best live music in the city can be found at Le Bon Temps or at Tipitinas, both less than a mile from the property. And if it's Mardi Gras you are after... Many of the Uptown parades line up along Jefferson between Tchoupitoulas St. and Magazine St. - 2 blocks from the house.
