Property Details

Updated: May 21, 2015
2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, in the heart of Bywater

Newly, beautifully, and lovingly restored, this outstanding historic home is immaculately clean. A serene sanctuary located in one of the liveliest areas of our city.

Two California King Pillow Top beds invite your slumber. The lovely leather sectional encourages your repose, while the kitchen insists that you prepare and partake of your victuals in contented grace.

The Bathroom!

1937 is the year that inspired this room's style. The clawfoot tub is original to the house and is sure to spark fights over who gets to soak or shower in it. Plenty of luxurious towels ensure your pleasure. Our lavatory was specially chosen for its beauty and function, as well as the ability to withstand a century or more of use. Once you seat yourself upon The Throne you will never want to stand up again, and the marble floor makes your experience one of Divinity.

Our pad is decked out in some of our favorite local art featuring people such as Red Metal, Generic Art Solutions, Jayme Kalal, Adam Farrington and Kourtney Keller.

For those of you who enjoy television, we do not offer this feature at this time. We do have Wi-Fi internet service available.

There are two king sized beds located in separate bedrooms, one queen sized air mattress and two single air mattresses. There is ample floor space but with a crowd of seven it would be cozy.

Our home is located in the main thoroughfare of the Bywater neighborhood with several restaurants and bars within a short walking distance: Oxalis, Booty's, Maurepas, Markey's Bar, Suis Generis, and Satsuma are within a block. The Country Club, a one-minute-walk, not only offers an exciting food menu and bar, but a swimming pool, hot tub, and sauna as well. There is also an excellent yoga studio, Yoga Bywater, that offers daily classes. The recently developed Crecent Park is an easy walk away and provides a sweeping view of the grand Mississippi River and downtown New Orleans.

Our neighborhood is a thriving and bustling enviornment that is a short walk, bike ride, or drive away from the Faubourg Marigny and French Quarter, and the Fairground is well within easy reach.

Come and enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer and sneak home to the comfort and bliss of our lovely home!

Weekend trip with 6 people

  • 5 of 5
We all had an amazing experience at this house. Jeff and Melissa were very accommodating and quickly responded to every one of our questions. The house was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortably fit our group. They also suggest places to eat and drink nearby which was greatly appreciated. The neighborhood is quirky and easy to walk to any area in New Orleans, especially Frenchman St! Overall we all had a great stay and really appreciated all of the owners help. Would recommend anyone to stay here for a weekend trip with family or friends!

We have nothing but praise for this charming house and our time in the Bywater. Beautiful, CLEAN, comfortable accommodations. After talking to friends about some of their unpleasant experiences with bugs, and shady neighborhoods in N.O., we were anxious about what we would find. Could not have been happier. Never worried for our safety for a moment and never saw a bug!! The funky neighborhood is in a great location to access New Orleans and especially Frenchman St. and its bars and Jazz Clubs. We enjoyed some of the wonderful restaurants and bars in the neighborhood that were easy walking distance for us and our two teenage daughters. Had an awesome breakfast at Elizabeth's, that truly was one of our highlights in an event-packed 5 day stay. Walked to Cresent Park for New Year's fireworks display over the N.O. Riverfront. Met Jeff and Melissa and they quickly responded by text to any questions we had. Thanks for a most memorable stay!! Would love to return and highly recommend.

Great location

  • 4 of 5
This house was in a great location. Walking distance to Frenchmen Street and the French Quarter. There are also a lot of area bars and restaurants to check out. The beds and couch were extremely comfortable and felt good on our tired feet. There is also a bus stop on the corner which we utilized daily. The owners were really flexible and allowed us to check in early. The house is in a more hip and artsy side of town, and super close to the park on the river. The only drawback is there is an enforced rule about no noise after 10pm, so if you're a loud party-er this probably isn't the house for you. This policy wasn't too much of a hassle though and We definitely enjoyed our time in bywater!!

short weekend trip with 6 people

We had a great time at this house. It was beautiful, authentic, and quiet. Lots of hip restaurants, bars, cool houses to see nearby. Crescent park by the river is definitely worth checking out. The owners were quick to respond and very flexible when we had a 6th person wanting to come 2 days prior to arrival. Would love to stay here again!

Beautiful house in a great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends and I recently rented this great house in New Orleans for a weekend and it was wonderful. First, the house is much bigger than the pictures lead you to believe - plenty of room for 5 friends or more! Although we did not meet the owners, they ensured that we had everything we needed for a great time in New Orleans. The house extremely clean and was fully stocked with bottled water, coffee and neighborhood tips. The location is great, especially if you want an experience that is far enough away from the insanity of Bourbon Street, yet close to local bars and restaurants. If you must experience the craziness, its only a short walk into the French Quarter. Overall, this was a great stay and I would highly recommend it!!

Great time in New Orleans!

My husband and I rented this little gem with another couple and their Mom. It was super clean and cool upon arrival after a long trip. Much nicer and spacious than the photos suggest. We had no problem with the layout and privacy, Mom slept on a very comfortable couch while we enjoyed spacious and comfortable beds. We were worried at first the Bywater may be too far from"it all" but we realized what a pleasure it was to return at the end of the day and rejuvinate for the night ahead. Plenty of bottled water was stocked, coffee and other amenities as well. It was fun exploring the city, finding the old school restaurants and doing the Bourbon St. crawl. We mostly drove or walked. We did rent bikes for a day from Micheal's Bicycles and even caught the bus right around the corner and got around easily. I encourage anyone to spend a day or two in the Bywater! There's Yoga at the Bywater right down the street, the Country Club has an in ground pool as well as food and drink. Satsuma's around the corner if you need a break from fried chicken and po' boys. Our favorite spot was Bacchanal where you can buy a bottle of wine, sit out in the patio and listen to live music. The food is great too. Elizabeth's for breakfast! It really is a lovely, colorful neighborhood. Melissa and Jeff were great and available if we needed anything. Staying here made all the difference!
