What you should know. This neighborhood like most in the city of New Orleans is culturally diverse, up and coming, and in a state of gentrification. In short, you must be comfortable with being exposed to all walks of life.

Also it is important to understand the lay out of the house. It is a classic New Orleans architecture style known as a Shotgun House. Meaning you walk through each room to get to the next. There are no separate hallways.

Bonus. World famous street artist Banksy has a well known piece The Umbrella Girl on a building right across the street.

No pets.

MINIMUM AGE to rent home is 25 years old and subject to verification upon request.

About the Owner

I have searched for a second home in this neighborhood for several years. I feel that I have found the perfect location, central to everything you need, and the peacefulness of a safe residential neighborhood. I am extending my home to you when I am not there because it is too beautiful not to share.

Girls Trip

I can not say enough about this house! We absolutely adored it. The beds were super comfortable it was fully stocked with all the comforts of home. It was a quick walk to my favorite place to get breakfast and bloody Mary's a must for any morning hangovers! But the best part is the outdoor spaces! Both the back courtyard and the front porch are super private, relaxing and beautiful! A rare find indeed. We are already planning our return trip and will definitely be staying here again!

Perfect house rental

  • 5 of 5
Myself and four other friends rented the Smile house for our 30th birthdays. We absolutely loved everything about it. The house was clean and spacious enough for the 5 of us. The walk was just the right amount of time to the hustle and bustle of NOLA, without being directly in the center of it. The neighbor was friendly as well, and introduced us to the neighborhood cat Jacque. We have discussed making this an annual friends trip, and will definitely stay here again if we make it back to NOLA. The courtyard was amazing, and we enjoyed having our private space to recuperate and eat breakfast each morning. Some of us had the most ridiculous crawdads at a hole in the wall seafood shack - they literally just brought plastic bags full of crawdads back to the house. Thanks for an incredibly memorable time!

LOVED NOLA

  • 5 of 5
I absolutely fell in love with New Orleans! The people, the food and the music stole my heart right away and my experience with Jesse and the NOLA SMILE house only strengthened that love! Jesse was wonderful and very accommodating with the check in process, offering extra help to store our bags since our flight got in early. The neighbor is a wonderful lady as well! The trip could not have been better and we will definitely be visiting again soon. I couldn't imagine finding a better place to call home during my stay!

Nola Trip

  • 5 of 5
Excellent time in the Smile house. Jesse was a pleasure to deal with. He made the entire booking process quick and easy. The house itself was in great shape when we checked in. The back patio and courtyard is so great for early morning coffee or an evening cocktail. The location was great as well. Short walk to Frenchman St. and The Quarter. Will definitely go back and stay at the Smile House. Thanks Jesse.
