We are on a peaceful family residential block that happens to be steps from everything. We have children and families living there, the fruit and vegetable carts calling out every morning. We seek travelers welcome to be a part of that but not disrespect it with noise and disruption. We are not for everyone, but we are very very special. Foodies, families, Girls weekends, Reunions. Beautiful complete rebuild of an historic 1840s New Orleans home. 4 blocks to Bourbon but retire to a peaceful beautifully renovated oasis.

The 2BR has 12 ft high ceilings. We have been doing vacation rentals for 4 years but have just completed the complete renovation of this property October 1, 2013. We had several bookings before we were listed and photos were taken. It is an amazing experience in a fantastic location, steps from Storyville, Congo Square, Louis Armstrong Park, and Cafe du Monde is a 10 minute stroll. We are 4 blocks from Bourbon Street.

About the Owner

I used to be a travel journalist and believe the best way to experience a place is to live in a real neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was so lucky to find this wonderful home. The home is renovated down to the last nail and it is lovely. This also means very clean, a biggie for me. The rooms are spacious, the windows let in lovely light throughout the day and the amenities are top notch. The location is ideal for the French Quarter and Marigny, really it is convenient to the whole town as it is located near bus service and the street car. A little walking might be in store to some locations, but its good to work off all the good food and drink! I had a rental car and was able to park in front of the house every day of the 30 I stayed. The linens are lovely and very clean. The kitchen is stocked with new dishes and cookware. There is a sweet, brand new laundry set up as well. Dave was the icing on the cake! He is a hardworking, patient, charismatic darling! He took care of all my needs very quickly. There was never an unanswered text or phone call. He ensured that I was well versed on the town as well. I got a locals guide straight from him! He is very particular about his guests and we had an in depth conversation before I rented to ensure I was the kind of person he wanted in his property. This is in a neighborhood and each resident expects respect of their personal privacy and comfort regarding noise and traffic. This is understandable and makes the location even more desirable for safety reasons as well as general warmth in spirit! As a single woman I felt safe and at ease on this 'up and coming' neighborhood street. A few families, lots of young couples and late 20, early 30 kinds of neighbors. I could not say more about this apartment. I will always look back fondly on my time (a whole month) in this apartment. Good memories and good sleep!

Good location, clean comfortable accommodations

  • 4 of 5
We rented a one bedroom and a two bedroom unit for a three generation family gathering. It was an easy walk to the Quarter and the Marigny, with food, music, and all the delights of New Orleans. We used a car for grocery shopping and trips to City Park, the Zoo, and further out in the Bywater. The units are simply and comfortably appointed, if a bit Spartan. We appreciated the in-unit laundry machines and keyless security. The property manager was friendly and responsive.

bachelorette weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Great hosts, awesome house! Walking distance to the French Quarter, Bourbon Street, Frenchman Street, great restaurants, and a few small convenience stores.

We had a small snafu with the coffee pot, but Shinda was amazing and replaced it in no time at all! We occupied Units 3 & 4 for nine ladies and it was very comfortable and clean.

I would definitely recommend the hosts and the house!!

Voodoo/Halloween weekend

  • 5 of 5
This house suited our needs perfectly. Everyone in the group had a great time. It's conveniently located and easily accommodated our group of 6. We would definitely stay there again!
Only drawback is that there were no iPod docks in the house, which we all thought was strange. Otherwise perfect!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. I have never had anyone ask about an ipod dock. I think there are different connectors based on the model. I also am thinking because people spend hours each day on Frenchman and at Jazzfest and Mardi that by the time they probably have their ears ringing, but I will certainly keep that in mind.

Fell in Love

  • 5 of 5
We just spent 3 fantastic weeks in New Orleans (NAWLINS) thanks to the fabulous accommodations and location! The "tree house" was bright, modern, comfortable, quiet and perfect for working (fantastic internet), eating (a full kitchen) and sleeping (the most comfortable bed ever). We had friends join us for a weekend and the queen size murphy bed in the large kitchen magically transformed the kitchen into a comfy guest room! The location was exactly what we were looking for - tucked into a quiet neighbourhood, close to Frenchman Street (our favourite) and easy walking distance to the French Quarter. We rented bikes and took day trips to Algiers, City Park, the Garden District and more. There was jazz in the Louis Armstrong Park on Thursdays & Saturdays....a very short walk.

Dave, our host, provided us with great suggestions for exploring the city and the restaurants. He was very prompt responding to my text messages and his assistant, who we met on arrival, was very friendly and helpful. Dave also provided a great recommendation for getting to & from the airport.

We relaxed & read on the private catwalk - and just before we left, a new deck was installed under the big tree in the backyard - another great outdoor place on the property.

We fell in love with the city and would definitely stay at the tree house again, in a heartbeat!

Great location, perfect size, nice deck/backyard area to hang out

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here. The location was absolutely perfect. If I were to live in New Orleans, that might be the area to be. We saw so much live music, danced, ate delicious food, walked all over the city, and even fit in church at Zion Hill right around the corner (which we found recommended in a Frommer's guide: The Best Authentic Experiences in New Orleans | Frommer's )(note-it is a little awkward, but they were very kind and inviting). I was so exhausted by the end I think I'm only now feeling fully recovered.
We left a camping chair there for your future guests; we found it was crucial for Jazz Fest.

This was by far my best vacation ever. Everything came together just perfectly. Now back to my diet. =)

Location

From the Owner

There is simply nothing remotely like it anywhere in the city. This is NOT a shotgun where you walk through each others bedrooms, in fact the bedrooms and bathrooms are massive by any standard. This is for the travelers who enjoy quiet at the end of a long day or night out on the town. SORRY, NO early check-ins, or early-arrival baggage storage.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : New Orleans (MSY) at 8 Miles Nearest Ferry : French Quarter to Algiers at 1 Miles Car: not necessary

The Esplanade Ridge is along Esplanade Avenue which divides the French Quarter, the Marigny, and the Treme.

SORRY, NO early check-ins, or early-arrival baggage storage.
