Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 19, 2014
We are new to VRBO! 2B/1.5B apt, 2 blocks from the main streetcar line

This is a classic New Orleans shot gun home. It has tall ceilings and hardwood floors throughout and ends with a sun room that overlooks a private courtyard. The sun room is a great room for drinking your coffee in the morning and getting a beautiful start to your day. It has wall-to-wall windows and plush seating, which makes it a very cozy space. The apartment is also well equipped with everything that you'll need to have the most comfortable stay; from coffee to shampoo to extra pillows. There are two bedrooms with Queen size beds, and each has a large closet for you to store your things while you stay. There's an office that has a desk, bookcase full of books for you to peruse, and a comfy, pillow-top futon which makes the office also function as a 3rd bedroom. One of the bedrooms has its own private half-bath! The living room has a flat screen tv that is wi-fi enabled, and plugged into Netflix and Amazon Prime for your viewing pleasure. Though I doubt you came to New Orleans to watch tv.

There's one off-street parking spot in front of the apartment. This is an upstairs apartment, which provides evermore privacy.

It's also conveniently located in historic Mid City. There are hip restaurants and bars within walking distance. The streetcar is 2 blocks away, and you can bike to any part of town from here. We're right off of the Endymion route! You can walk to Jazz Fest and Voodoo Fest from here (we do, and it's a nice walk on the bayou to the fests). You can also walk to City Park to hang out, or to go one of the many festivals that happen there or the New Orleans Museum of Art or to Morning Call at any time of the day for a classic beignet and cafe au lait. There are many great things in City Park. If you need something from the grocery, we're very close to a Whole Foods and Rouses (local chain).

I live next door in the other apartment. If there's anything that you need I'm just a knock away. Otherwise, I understand that this is your vacation, so please enjoy yourself! We look forward to hosting you in New Orleans!

About the Owner

I'm a local artist who was born and raised in New Orleans. I show around town, and when I'm not showing I'm doing graphic design for a boutique design shop uptown. In my spare time I love tackling DIY projects, sewing, knitting, riding my bike to City Park and along the Lakefront, and also hanging with friends for a happy hour in the neighborhood. This is New Orleans, so I obviously love to eat and can always help you find something that suits your palette.

When I moved back to New Orleans, I knew I wanted to live in Mid City. It's a great place to live. I love my neighborhood.

Just right

  • 4 of 5
My sisters and I stayed for a few days here and enjoyed our time here. The location is convenient to the trolley that took us easily to City Park or into the hotel district and French Quarters easily and conveniently. The place was clean and welcoming- and reasonably priced. Places like the Ruby Slipper and Mandina's made great meals a short walk away. Two queens were very comfortable- the futon not so much- ended up on couch.

excellent stay in New Orleans

  • 4 of 5
I really enjoyed staying in this home while visiting. It was nice to have a place to go back to every night that felt like home! The house was very easy to find and in a great location to everything we wanted to do. One thing we really liked and found helpful was a little book that was in the house that Katrina had filled in restaurants and other helpful things for the stay. The only complaint I have is that the street was very full and hard to get down most of the time. Overall we had a great stay and I would recommend this place to anyone!

Charming home

  • 4 of 5
This home was absolutely adorable and had everything we needed for our stay. The rooms are large and the furnishings are very comfortable (the beds specifically are so cozy!). The ambiance of the place was perfect - we seriously felt that we were right at home. Katrina left chocolates on the table and a guide with recommendations for local restaurants, which was a nice touch. The only downside was that the bathroom is very small and outdated, but other than that, everything was perfect.

Location

From the Owner

Before I bought this home I lived nearby in the same neighborhood for a few years, and I loved my neighborhood. I knew when I started looking for a home, it would be in this exact same neighborhood. It's just so conveniently located. I never have to get on the highway and can be uptown, downtown and the French Quarter under 15 minutes. You can bike everywhere if you wanted to. And being right off of Carrollton and Canal, there are many great amenities in the neighborhood and many more opening on what seems like a daily basis. I also chose this home for it's proximity to City Park. I love to ride my bike and walk. It's such a great way to unwind. Being close to the bayou and the park means that I can take advantage of the trails and being close to the water. Having all of the amenities of a busy city block and then also tons of green space is a win win and I love it.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : MSY at 12 Miles

There are numerous eateries in the area as well as a walking trail nearby. When the weather is nice, it's lovely to take a walk on the Bayou and get a sno-ball at Pandora's. There's a breakfast spot, Ruby Slipper, within walking distance and it's not to be missed if you stay here.

I chose this property during my search because of it's charm. I'm all about the charm. It has the transoms, the history, the tall ceilings...the charm. I'm an artist, so beautiful spaces mean a lot to me.
