vacation rental description

This newly renovated beautiful artist penthouse is in one of New Orleans’ most amazing historic neighborhoods the ‘Irish Channel’. A unique neighborhood loaded with quaint Victorian cottages, only one block from the wonderful Garden District, and Magazine Street the best shopping district the city has to offer.

Built in the 1880’s as a corner grocery store, this two story, bracketed style building with a balcony, was designed to sell fresh produce on the first floor and to provide housing for the store owner and his family on the second floor. New Orleans neighborhoods are sprinkled with these buildings some sold meat and dairy products others sold produce, now many have been converted into homes, studios and even corner bars which offer great gathering places for locals.

The second floor apartment is light and airy with floor to ceiling operable windows which open to the relaxing balcony that stretches across the front of the building. Original woodwork,

7’-4” doors with transoms, along with the heavy crown molding frames the 12’ ceilings in the large main room that services as dining and living room. The furnishings are a mix of antiques and contemporary with original art throughout the apartment.

The sizeable bedroom offers a relaxing night’s sleep in the antique four poster double bed. An historic portrait hangs above the cypress mantle.

For the best roof top view step into the spacious bathroom, two large windows will make you feel like you are in a tree house.

If you want to be close to everything – this is the place for you!

Only one block from the magnificent Garden District, loaded with amazing historic antebellum homes whose architectural styles go from Victorian and Greek Revival to Italianate. It is a neighborhood of both local and national celebrities, writers, movie stars and quite a few Kings and Queens!, that would be New Orleans’ Royalty – Mardi Gras Kings and Queens.

Only one block from New Orleans’ favorite shopping district Magazine Street. No need for a car, Magazine Street has everything within walking distance. If you need groceries, a cup of great coffee, a birthday cake, bottle of wine, a message, a facial, jewelry, clothes, shoes, art, antiques, or even a musical instrument it’s just a stroll down the street. There is a restaurant for every taste from Coquette Bistro & Wine Bar, Nacho Mama’s Mexican Grill, Sucré, Gott Gourmet Café, Rum House, Joey K’s Restaurant, Rocky’s Pizza, The Bulldog, Sake Café, Café Rani, Magazine PoBoys, to Juans Flying Burrito. And just a few blocks off Magazine Street is the famous Commander’s Palace.

Only one block from two of New Orleans’ most popular corner bars – Parasols’ Bar & Restaurant and Tracey’s the Original Irish Channel Bar. This whole block turns green on St. Patrick’s Day with Irish Clubs marching in the streets early in the morning then a huge street party continues throughout the day. The Saturday before St. Patrick’s Day is the “Irish Chanel St. Patrick’s Day Parade” which travels up Magazine Street then down St Charles Avenue in Mardi Gras size floats pelting the parade goers with everything you need to make an Irish Stew, cabbages, potatoes, carrots, and onions. There are also hoards of men who are members of local Irish Clubs wearing kilts and trading paper flowers for kisses.

Only 10 minutes to all the fabulous attractions New Orleans has to offer. The French Quarter, Convention Center, Super Dome, Audubon Park & Zoo, Aquarium of the Americas, World Trade Center, Harrah’s Casino, Arts District, D Day Museum, Civil War Museum, Ogdon Southern Art Museum, Contemporary Art Museum, Insectarium, Mardi Gras World, Audubon Golf Course, and Theaters both live and film.

Transportation is so easy, stroll through the Garden District to St. Charles Avenue to catch the Streetcar, or catch a bus one block away. Because we are so close to Downtown a cab ride is pretty cheap.

traveler reviews for this new orleans apartment rental

Absolutely lovely!!

Review submitted: August 12, 2014   Date of arrival: August 2, 2014

This was our first VRBO experience and it will NOT be our last! My wife and I traveled with our 15 year old tenor saxophone playing son for his first trip to New Orleans. The accommodations were wonderful - comfortable, airy, welcoming - and the fresh croissants, fruit, coffee, and refrigerator with an array of cold beverages were icing on the cake! Proximity to local restaurants, shopping and bus to the French Quarter made the location perfectly suited for us. A short distance from all the fun, but a nice and quiet place to return to in the afternoon to rest up for the evening! We will be back!!

Recommended for: families with teenagers, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Fabulous Location!!

Review submitted: August 7, 2014   Date of arrival: July 31, 2014

Loved staying here! Was in town for a 35 year high school reunion and so happy we chose this apartment to stay in. The owners are absolute sweethearts and will help you in any way they can. I am from NOLA and love uptown and Magazine street. This property is one block off of Magazine St. which is home to many of the best restaurants and shops in Nola. If you don't have a car, you are a short 5 min walk to St. Charles Streetcar line. This will take you into the French Quarter. As for the apartment itself, it was great. Beautiful 12 foot ceilings and an abundance of natural light with the tall windows. It was clean and had a great kitchen, fabulous sized walk in closet, and large bathroom also with plenty of light. It is just what you see in the pictures. Would definitely stay here again!

Irish Channel Charmer

Review submitted: June 27, 2014   Date of arrival: June 16, 2014

Overall, 5 star rental. The pro's SO heavily outweigh the con's.

Pro -

- Large upstairs apt w/ lots of windows and great light. White-washed floors and walls.
- Kitchen stocked w/ bottled water, soda, milk, dark roast coffee, tea, croissants.
- Living room is very large and comfortable. 4 floor to ceiling windows opening to balcony overlooking Constance St. Large sectional couch, love seat and dining table.
- Large, nicely furnished bedroom. Walk-in closet w/ plenty of hangers.
- Large bathroom. 2 windows provide lots of natural light. Plenty of towels/wash cloths and shelf space.
- Street parking readily available right outside apt.
- Immaculately clean.
- Great value.
- 2 blocks to Tracey's. Best bar in the Channel.

Cons -

- The double bed is short. At 6', my feet were touching the foot board.
- Unable to connect to internet in main living area. Only able to connect in bedroom or bathroom.

My wife and I visit NOLA monthly and will absolutely stay here again. Excellent rental in a great neighborhood. Highest recommendation.
