vacation rental description

LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION! MARDI GRAS DATES ARE AVAILABLE!!

Come enjoy New Orleans like a local in MidCity, a favorite NOLA neighborhood located in what was known in the 19th century as the “back of town.” Two blocks from the streetcars on Canal Street and Carrollton, this home is just ten minutes from the French Quarter, the Fairgrounds, Bayou St. John, City Park, the famous cemeteries of New Orleans, and more.

This beautiful house was flooded during Katrina, but has been lovingly restored by its owners, who wanted to help make New Orleans whole again after the devastation of the storm. Outfitted for comfort and serenity, it is a welcome respite after wild abandon at Mardi Gras or Jazz Fest, French Quarter Festival, the VooDoo Experience or Essence Festival, and just exploring all the magical wonders this unique city has to offer.

PRIVATE HOT TUB! Clothing is optional as you enjoy the cozy round hot tub in our totally private courtyard. Whip up a delicious cocktail and have a bubbly soak, surrounded by lush tropical greenery gracing our new large deck in the back yard. You can go from watching the 'river of life' flow by from the front porch that overlooks the lively streets of New Orleans, to enjoying complete outdoor privacy in our tropical paradise in the back yard. And as you move from the front porch to the back yard you'll walk through the graceful rooms of this lovely 100-year-old house decorated in a colorful, eclectic style that lets you know you are in the fabulous and funky city of New Orleans. Nothing generic, suburban, or run-of-the-mill in this house, that's for sure!

When you're ready for some socializin', step around the corner to Finn McCool’s and have a beer, talk to the locals, meet some new people ... New Orleans folks are friendly! In the cool of the evening stroll over to Angelo Brocato’s on Carrollton Ave and delight in their wondrous pastries and Italian ice or gelato. Host a Sugar Bowl party in front of our 42' HD flat screen TV, then dance the night away to the Zydeco music at the Rock-N-Bowl, truly a NOLA experience. Or catch the streetcar on Canal and step right out onto Bourbon, Decatur or Frenchman Street for a night of festivities. For those in the know, Frenchman Street (in the Marigny) is the place to be for great live music. But MidCity has its share of live music going on every weekend too ... Banks St Bar & Grill, Chickie Wah Wah's (on Canal), and others.

Restaurants abound in MidCity and many are within an easy walk of three or four blocks. The Ruby Slipper (delicious breakfast and lunch), Mandina's (time-honored NOLA tradition), Mona's (Mediterranan fare and fabulous homemade pita bread), Juan's Flying Burrito (mmmm-mmmmm), Venezia (rumored to have been a Mafia hangout long ago), Wit's End (said to have hosted Brangelina once), Dosan's Noodle House, Five Happiness, and more. Rouse's grocery store is close by on Carrollton, and it is a New Orleans institution (great fried chicken, homemade Cajun sausage and boiled crawfish). So even if you're sans automobile, you'll be well-fed!

This house has three bedrooms, three baths, 14’ ceilings, original heart pine floors, a 6’ long claw foot bathtub in the master bath, new large walk-in shower, spacious kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, king-size four-poster bed, two queen beds, and two daybeds with trundles. It also features a large private deck/courtyard with a five-person hot tub. It’s perfect for a family getaway, a romantic honeymoon, a bachelor party, a reunion of old friends, a Festival experience … somehow magic happens in New Orleans and you will make memories to last a lifetime.

So come on down and experience The City That Care Forgot!

traveler reviews for this new orleans house rental

House of Mirth

Review submitted: June 14, 2014   Date of arrival: June 5, 2014

Six of us recently stayed at the House of Mirth for a New Orleans bachelor weekend. We couldn't have picked a better place. The house was in a fantastic location and just a 10 minute ($1.25) street car ride to the French quarter. The neighborhood was very unique with all of the amenities and excellent restaurants nearby (Katie's was amazing). Not once did we feel unsafe. Elizabeth (owner) was very helpful and provided us with some excellent insight on the surrounding area. Everything about the house was exactly as described. Needless to say " The House of Mirth exceeded our expectations "!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Excellent stay at the House of Mirth

Review submitted: April 10, 2014   Date of arrival: April 4, 2014

We were lucky enough to find the House of Mirth for our trip to New Orleans. Our group consisted of 9 guys in their late 20s, early 30s visiting the city for an extended bachelor weekend. The house was perfect for us and could have slept even more if necessary. The house was clean and very well kept. There were 3 bathrooms and 2 showers (3 if you count the one outside by the hot tub), which was plenty. The fully functional kitchen was nice, but we rarely used it as we ate out most of the time. Katie's which is about 3 blocks away had PHENOMENAL food. We made multiple visit to this corner neighborhood restaurant and had different meals each time, but no one was ever disappointed (which is tough to do). Go! Get the Oysters Slessinger! Just do it and thank me later. The location of the house was great. It's in mid-city, which is out of the frat party of bourbon street, but is 2 blocks away from the street car and canal street. The street cars come every 10-15 minutes and for $3 you can ride all day and it will take you right downtown/bourbon or pretty much anywhere else. We are already hoping to make a less party-centric trip back to NOLA and I will be sure to see if the House of Mirth is available.
