Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 24, 2014
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!

short weekend trip with 6 people

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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!

Amazing location, accommodating hosts.

  • 5 of 5
Where do I begin? From the very first interaction Melissa was sweet and willing to bend over backwards to accommodate our needs. We took a redeye in so we got there at 5 in the morning and Melissa had everything ready for us. And she let us stay late the day we left because she didn't have anyone coming the next day. Talk about Customer Service!

The place itself is lovely. High ceilings, gorgeous hardwood floors, a nice kitchen, and two California kings. There is even a backyard and a washer and dryer! The decor is antique but not kitchsy, with funky local art on the walls.

And the location! So many amazing bars and restaurants just around the corner. Make sure to have dinner at Oxalis, spend the day at the pool at the Country Club, have brunch at Elizabeth's and and oyster po'boy (or three) at Frady's. If you want to walk a bit further (15 min) go to Bacchanal at dusk and listen to some good music in a beautiful funky neighborhood setting. And if the French Quarter is your thing, it's only a 15 minute walk or so.

I will definitely be coming back because there is so much to explore in that neighborhood that a week was definitely not enough.

Just perfect!

We stayed here for a week in June and loved everything about the place. The house itself is beautiful and clean and the owners are so sweet and accommodating. The best part about the house is the location. There is so much to do (and eat!) in the Bywater and this house is in walking distance to most of it. We didn't have a single complaint about our week there and would definitely stay again.

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 4-night stay at this home recently and highly recommend it. It is comfortable and spacious, with cool, funky artwork, good beds and overhead fans to keep it airy. The location is terrific, we always found easy street parking and Satsuma's Café is right around the corner for breakfast or lunch, with other stores and restaurants nearby. The owner, Melissa, was very responsive, friendly and accommodating. This is a perfect spot to stay for a New Orleans visit!
