Need them both? Let me know!

(Please also see my waterfront home in Fairhope, AL. It is VRBO listing number 170332. A good place for folks from New Orleans to go be on the water.)

This wonderful, huge apartment with double parlors, your own private entrance, and shared courtyard (with fountain) in an 1889 Eastlake Victorian House is your gateway to the heart of one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities in the world.

In the Lower Garden District historical section of New Orleans, this house is just two blocks from satisfying your craving for antiques of the finest kind, the best roasted coffee, food at some of the most amazing restaurants, and booze at an incredibly eclectic collection of bars on Magazine Street.

It is just three blocks from the Convention Center (if you, unfortunately, have to work), and Mardi Gras World, where you can see how that party started, and where many of the parades start during Mardi Gras itself. As a matter of fact, between Mardi Gras World and St. Charles Street, 30... Yes... THIRTY parades go within six blocks of this house (but not right in front of the house). That's good, see? You won't find anybody sleeping it off on your porch in the morning.

Speaking of St. Charles Street, a six-block walk, past some of the most beautiful and elegant houses, between Magazine and St. Charles, gets you to the streetcar. The closest stop is St. Charles at Felicity. $1.25 (exact change please) gets you a ride on the best way to travel in the U.S.A.!

You say you want to party... Hmm... No problem. Just remember that this is a residential neighborhood, and we like our neighbors, so the major partying will be done out in the city. If Magazine Street and its pleasures are too sedate for you, head down Annunciation Street toward the Warehouse District, CBD, and the French Quarter. a 10-minute walk gets you to The Rusty Nail, Bellocq, Ugly Dog Saloon, Dino's, The Circle Bar, Republic New Orleans, and on and on...

Feeling more thoughtful... The wonderful National WWII Museum, one of the most popular attractions in New Orleans, is a ten-minute walk away as well, and is great for kids, too. The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and the Confederate Memorial Hall Museum are right next door. By the way, if all the walking starts to bother you, and you have taken full advantage of the streetcar, a phone call will get a cab to the house in 5 minutes.

Food... Well, what can I say? Cochon, Annunciation, Eleven 79, Mayas Nuevo Latino, HiVolt, and Half Moon are some of our favorite places within short walking distance. there is no limit to where you can eat, and we will be happy to give you a list, suggestions, and so forth.

To sum up, in terms of location, you have it all right here at your fingertips! Enjoy!

About the Owner

After traveling a great deal, this native of Mobile (whose mother was a true Beatnik who lived on Royal Street in the Quarter in the early sixties), and his wife, a true Frenchie, bought this house as a way to recapture and exercise their love for the Deep South, France, and urban living, all in one fell swoop.

Everything about this property from the house itself to the owner was fantastic!

The house is just far enough away from the French Quarter to be peaceful but close enough to live the lifestyle!

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5
Such a beautiful home and incredibly generous hosts. Came down for a long weekend with my boyfriend and another couple and the home was beautiful. The location perfect for wandering over to central part of the Garden District or catching a quick cab ride over to the French Quarter. There are also some great food spots close by and a great porch to relax on. Sabin and his family were incredibly welcoming and had fantastic advice on where to eat and what to see on our trip. We're going to try to make it an annual tradition.

Tulane graduation rental

  • 5 of 5
We rented both sides of "Annunciation" for Tulane graduation weekend. It was the perfect location for campus, the super dome, french quarter and even magazine street. The large side easily accommodated our group for meals and gatherings and having both sides was great for sleeping and down time. Sabin was great to work with and very quick to respond to questions. I would definitely stay here again!!

Thank you again.

Even more than we imagined!

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from an absolutely perfect weekend in New Orleans. The owner, Sabin, was quick to respond, offered lots of suggestions, and was easy to communicate with prior to and during the trip. Upon arrival, I knew this place was more than a typical vacation rental because my fiance had secretly coordinated a special surprise with the owner. He went above and beyond--no questions asked. The house itself was beautiful and so perfectly New Orleans. I was surprised to find that the rooms (living and bed) were much larger than what I expected from the photos, and I feel like usually it's the opposity. The house was well decorated and appointed---lots of towels, dishes, etc. We walked to quite a few neighborhood spots, and also rented bikes for the entire weekend. What a fun way to explore! If you want to take the streetcar, it's super easy and close, and if you call a taxi it will be at the house in less than 5 minutes. My friends had to drag me away from New Orleans and this awesome home. Stay here, eat lots of delicious food, and dance to live music!

Owner's Response: Well, you obviously found the best way to enjoy New Orleans!

Thank you so much for coming and staying at my place. I love to share it, and make sure that people see New Orleans through my eyes.

I am also very glad that I could do a little bit extra for you on your special occasion, and hope that, if you decide to come back to New Orleans again, I can make that stay special too.

Many thanks, and congratulations!

USM Grad Party of 5

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough good things about this experience, both with Home Away and the owner of the property. "First Class" does not even begin to tell the story. We had a seamless transaction with Home Away, including just receiving our security refund in less than 10 days. The registration, payment, and refund process was better than I expected. Now the property. We had 5 people and would have needed 3 rooms at 3 hotels, so this worked fantastic. The owner contacted me before my reservation to answer questions, and then again after we booked. He sent us extra information and was extremely helpful. If you are looking for a true New Orleans experience, this is it. The house is a 'camel-back' shotgun with two bedrooms upstairs, and four rooms down. The house was exactly what you would experience if you lived in the city. We had a great time, and had NO complaints whatsoever. In fact, we are planning to stay here every year. The house was clean and well appointed, and is in a quiet and safe Garden District neighborhood. A plus was that we got to meet the owner who was staying in the smaller unit. He was friendly, helpful, and a wonderful addition to our trip. He emailed us a couple of times on the day we were due to check in--which he let us do early--to make sure we were okay. In short, I do not believe there is any better choice in New Orleans if you want an authentic NOLA experience. I would give this 10 stars if possible. The owner was extremely easy to work with and made our stay even better. He even provided some langiappe as well. Fabulous!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
The house was absolutely fantastic! Very clean and well-kept and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. Great location just off Magazine and great restaurants within walking distance. We were in NOLA for Jazzfest and didn't rent a car and transportation to fairgrounds by bus was very easy. Taxi service was also quick and easy. We would definitely stay here again when in NOLA! Sabin was very professional to deal with and ensured our stay was a good one!
