vacation rental description

Our home is a craftsman bungalow located in Uptown on Apple Street, two blocks from the St. Charles Trolley. Right at the intersection of Apple, Fontainebleau and Carrollton Streets, our block has had many of the same residents for years. Upper Carrollton is a part of Uptown that has long retained elements of its historical identity. The Carrollton neighborhood was developed when the St. Charles trolley was opened in the 1830's.

The large, private back yard is very New Orleans. We have a pond and bridge a waterfall and a gazebo. While you are in the middle of the city, the pond and waterfall create a peaceful environment.

The pond, which is about 5,000 gallons, contains anywhere from twelve to thirty-six koi. The pond attracts herons and kingfishers which, to our chagrin, like to dine at our place.

There is extensive ground lighting. In a tribute to old New Orleans, there are eighteen flickering Bourbon Street gas lanterns lining the seven-foot high walls.

The entire house and yard are wired for sound, so bring your iphone. There are four televisions and a CD player.

In the yard there is a large gas grill, a refrigerator, a wooden table and eight chairs. The table and chairs are made of eucalyptus, which is not only extremely dense but a sustainable resource. The area is pet friendly with custom-built cedar fences enclosing the underside of the home. There is also a 48” double door, wire kennel for your dog.

The kitchen floor is made from bricks recaptured from old buildings and sliced into beautiful floor tiles. The cherry cabinetry and granite countertops are striking.

Our home is stay-ready. The stocked kitchen has a large gas range, a convection oven and a microwave convection oven. With a breakfast bar and a kitchen table, the kitchen seats eight.

The property has hardwood floors throughout the rest of the home; in both living rooms and each of the three bedrooms.

The master bedroom has a beautiful sleigh bed (queen size). The master bath has a ceramic tile floor and a large sunken Jacuzzi tub. In addition, there is a salt water coral reef. It's our little coral marine colony. Besides their stunning beauty, coral reefs protect coastal areas around the world.

The guest bathroom is decorated floor to ceiling in Travertine Italian tile. The shower has a number of Kohler fixtures; two digital thermostat control systems, two traditional shower heads, eight overhead shower heads and four body sprays.

The property also has a king size bed, two twin beds and a sleeper sofa. In addition, there is an inflatable mattress.

traveler reviews for this new orleans house rental

New Orleans Oasis !!!!

Review submitted: August 29, 2014   Date of arrival: October 14, 2013

This review is so late but we have been so busy blissfully honeymooning since getting married in NOLA last fall, that I forgot to take the time to write it. It is hard to imagine finding a better home to rent during our stay last year. We booked this house for the week of our destination wedding and several wedding party members stayed with us during that time. From the street view of the property, you have no idea what beauty awaits you inside! It definitely exceeded our expectations. The pictures are great, but they do not do this property justice. The décor is so tasteful, the home is so spacious. As soon as you enter you know that you are about to really enjoy yourself. There are so many areas to sit and relax, from the 2 seating areas in the front part of the home, to the spacious kitchen, to the backyard which is a New Orleans Oasis!!! The gas lamps flickering at night, the soothing sound of the water from the pond it is a totally serene and relaxing environment. We had multiple areas to sit outside including the Gazebo. I had initially planned to go to City Park with my photographer to take my Bridal Portraits on the day we arrived, but when she came to meet me at the house and saw this backyard, we agreed to shoot right there which was so convenient for me as far as getting in & out of my dress. We even did some shots inside the house. They all came out beautiful!!! Also, since there is so much space in this home, we were able to host a luncheon after our wedding rehearsal with our wedding party and even welcomed some of our wedding guests that arrived the evening before the wedding. Everyone absolutely loved this house & was raving about it. The premiere sound system allowed us to have music throughout which was very much appreciated by these music lovers. Each morning we all fought for our turn in the shower that can only be described as heavenly! The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the cooking utensils, dishes, pots and pans you could ever need & we used them throughout the week. Jackie, who was right next door, was responsive to all of our needs. The only issue we had was the washing machine did not work. It would not drain or spin properly. Jackie called out a repairman but they just never got it working quite right again. Honestly we were able to make do without it & I will not let that minor issue make our review less than 5 stars. It pales in comparison to all of the wonderful memories we made with our family during this time !

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Great Place to Stay to Enjoy a Great City

Review submitted: July 17, 2014   Date of arrival: July 3, 2014

We stayed the July 4th weekend and had an amazing time! This is a nice home convenient to the trolley that will take you right down in the heart of the city. Also a Walgreen's where you can purchase your trolley pass. A grocery store if you are in the mood for cooking. Burger King if you want something on the go. There's a park near by with an area for kids to play or you can have a picnic. There's a beautifully maintained backyard with a nice sitting area. A lovely living spaces and outstanding backyard set this place apart from many places I have stay. I WISH I COULD HAVE STAY LONGER.

I never got the chance to meet Jackie Schick, but Andy Wheeler was the Bomb. When you think of going above the call of customer service, his name should be put at the top. He was very helpful, funny, smart, and just enjoyable to be around and talk to, no matter what you needed.

Owners response: Thanks very much. We do have a lot to choose from in our neighborhood. I also heard you may be coming back sometime. Hope to hear from you soon.

Absolutely gorgeous and wonderful home!

Review submitted: July 14, 2014   Date of arrival: July 9, 2014

I can't say enough about how delighted we were with our stay in this gorgeous home. Our group of 6 travelers ranged in age from 65 yrs to 14 yrs old and everyone single one of us adored the house.
The entire house was very comfortable, clean and beautifully appointed. It was also much larger than we expected. The central air system kept the house perfectly cool, and the bedrooms were roomy as well as comfortable. Plantation shutters allow you to adjust the window light without losing privacy. The kitchen is spacious and can accommodate 6 (or more) with no difficulty.
The backyard is a wonderful oasis of New Orleans charm. We loved having our tea out there in the morning and our wine in the evenings. 16 gas lanterns flicker at night and the waterfall, fish pond and gazebo are lit as well. It's truly a beautiful place that rivals courtyards in the Quarter.
The location is convenient. You have a lot to choose from in the immediate neighborhood and you're just a very short ride from anything else you want to do in the city.
Thank you so much to Jeffrey, the owner for making us feel welcome and providing a list of so many things to do. We had a fantastic time.

Owners response: Thanks very much. We love our house. With our yard we try to create a French Quarter feel, even though we are in a quiet residential neighborhood. Nothing better than having your morning coffee in the backyard.
