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.

House was nice and roomy for 6 of us. Owner was very easy to deal with.
House could have been cleaner, floors were dirty, beds and shower had hair in them.
Kitchen was great - roomy with all the amenities. Love the courtyard in the back!
Just short walk to Bourbon Street and The French Market.
I was a little nervous about the area at first but we walked around quite a bit without any issues (we have two small kids).
Great Banksy painting across the street!

Owner's Response: Not sure what happened with these guests.
We pride ourselves in constant 5 star reviews.
The house is always prepped right before guests are arrived with a 4 hour cleaning.
All bedding is cleaned each visit, as well as entire house.
We even gave the guests a 6 hour early check in.
I know you can not make everyone happy all the time, but it still bothers me to see such a review.

My friends and I were in New Orleans for five amazing days. The NOLA smile house was perfectly located for us, close to both Frenchmen St. and the French Quarter. Cabs scooped us up quickly, and the neighbors were nice. The house itself was lovely and the perfect place to come back and relax with a glass of wine after a day of adventuring. I would love to come back next time we visit and would recommend NOLA smile for anyone who wants to be close to the action without being right in it.

Cozy and Convenient, A Great Spot

Three of us, all over 60, found the Smile House just what we needed. We were attending mtgs, busy all day, and this was the perfect retreat. And, situated just a short distance from Frenchmen St., simply added to our pleasure.

Perfect for our trip..

  • 5 of 5
We make an annual trip to NOLA with a group of friends and this was the first time we stayed somewhere other than a hotel. It was awesome. Perfect location and we all loved the backyard for relaxing after long nights. Walking distance to everything and the house was in great condition. Definitely plan on adding this place into our yearly tradition!

Amazing!!! Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5
This was my first visit to New Orleans and this rental came highly recommended. I was very impressed. I stayed with 4 other adults and there was plenty of room. The house is in great condition, up to date and very clean. It has all the amenities you need and the location is ideal. I was able to safely walk to nearby attractions and on rainy days a cab would appear in less than 5 min. I would highly recommend this property. The backyard is huge ad we enjoyed sitting on the large front porch in the mornings and evenings. I can not say enough about what a great experience I had staying here!
