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.

Perfect setting and attentive owner

  • 5 of 5
I am a really picky person and get easily grossed out even in 5 star hotels; that being said, this was a perfect alternative to a hotel and it was spotless- zero gross outs which is rare for me! The location was ideal for everything we wanted to do (sightseeing, shopping, dining, and the like), the porch and back yard areas were great and very relaxing (the backyard is huge and offers a good deal of privacy). A surprise and unadvertised bonus for me was the company of Jacques- a super sweet cat who lives across the street; he helped me miss my fur babies a little less while I was there. I highly recommend this property!

Highly recommend this house and owner

  • 5 of 5
Spent 5 days in this great house. It is in beautiful shape and spotless. The owner is a wealth of knowledge about NO and very helpful, easy to deal with, and very responsive. The front porch is great to sit on and watch people go by, drink coffee, and just chill out. The backyard is huge and very relaxing. There is nothing missing from this great property. It is very close to the French Quarter and you can walk to most things. If you need a cab it comes in 3-5 minutes! The Verti Marte is a great store/restaurant that delivers and has wonderful food! I highly recommend this house and would go back in a minute.

My wife and I enjoyed our second vacation to New Orleans. I feel it was one of the most convenient, cleanest and safest locations we researched. The owner Jesse was available 24 hours by phone and was more than happy to answer any questions. The place is equipped with washer, dryer, and a fully equipped kitchen. Additionally, there is cable television <----BUT YOU WILL NOT NEED IT BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH TO SEE AND DO. You are literally steps from the French Quarters and it's endless excitement, but far enough away to quietly enjoy the beautiful patio and deck offered at this location. I highly recommend this location to all and urge all who read this to look at Jesse's additional rental a few blocks from here.

Great stay close to the French Quarter

  • 5 of 5
This place was the perfect spot for our trip to the Sugar Bowl! The weather was mild, so we enjoyed sitting on the front porch and the back patio. Jesse is a fantastic owner and quickly answered all of our questions. The cable package for the house doesn't have ESPN, which we wanted in order to follow the other bowl games. Jesse even tried to add it for us, but it didn't work out on short notice. Highly recommend this place and would stay here again.

Safe, clean, affordable

  • 5 of 5
Definitely one of the nicer places we have stayed. I routinely go on-line for condo's or rental homes rather than stay in a hotel when we travel. We are a family of 4 teen thru twentysomething daughters, my Husband and I. This shotgun house is spotless, the kitchen has everything you need to cook for family or entertain. One of the most enjoyable parts of the day was the short walk through the neighborhood down to the main streets of the French Quarter. Even with four daughters to keep an eye on I never felt uncomfortable for their safety. I had worried about weather a rental car would be necessary and it most certainly was NOT.

Within stumbling distance of the French Quarter

  • of 5
The house was located just a block or so from the French Quarter, which was perfect for us because we walked just about everywhere! From the house it was a short walk to Louis Armstrong Park for the Creole Music and Food Festival, and only another block or so to St.Louis cemetery. Very cool!
The only time we took a cab was to the Superdome to watch the Saints vs the 49ers.
Jesse is a gracious host and the property was clean and very well kept! The patio out back was great for pre-drinking and just chillin. Lol
I think we all preferred Frenchman street over Bourbon street, though maybe bourbon would appeal more to the 20-something crowd.
By far the best thing we ate was the "All that Jazz" PoBoy at Verti Marte on Royal Street. Amazing!!
The swamp tour with Cajun Encounters was a great experience.
All in all, we had a great time.
Thanks Jesse!
