About the Owner

I have several properties that are vacation rentals- several here, in Austin and Wimberley TX. I am a former Realtor- I love this business. I remodel older homes for a living--restoring homes is very important to me; there are plenty here in New Orleans.

Home away!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing apartment that really feels like a home away from home. The neighborhood is both quiet and happening, with lots of great restaurants, stores and shops. The apartment and the neighborhood are so charming, and we simply loved our time here. You can easily walk to the French Quarter or have a night in and enjoy the epic balcony. The property manager and care taker are extremely kind and responsive, and the place is clean and has excellent amenities. Highly recommended!!

Quiet and Funky

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 12 days (spring break) with my two teenage sons. The neighborhood is very quiet. Mardi Gras Zone is the only supermarket, but it's open 24 hours. Mostly things like powdered gravy mixes and processed food. But they do get the NYTimes each morning. The only noise was trains in the night which added atmosphere. It was less pleasant when the downstairs was occupied on our last day: intrusive voices, etc.

There are some great local spots in Bywater. There is an espresso bar that has great coffee beans and there is Jack Dempsey's Po' Boy joint (fried food). No tourists in there and great food. Also Elizabeths for great food.

You're a short walk from the French Quarter and you easily walk/take taxis the whole time.

There is a great High Line-like park on the water in ByWater. Don't miss this!

The space is very cool though there is little privacy. The upstairs room is windowless and a little like an isolation tank. The kitchen needs a collander and a cheese grater but is otherwise nicely equipped.

There is a church across the street that features weddings each Saturday. They are fun to watch.

There is a guy who plays a little organ about 5 blocks away. It's so quiet you can make out the songs.

Overall: very nice to be out of French Quarter and in a cool neighborhood.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! We came with 4 people and had a blast in NOLA. There's even a book people have been writing in about their New Orleans adventures. I will say the upstairs was a little difficult for me to navigate (I'm 6'1") but my girlfriend had to problem standing up fully. I have no complaints about this place. I would recommend this to anyone with a group. The price point and size are a steal!

Awesome House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came down to NOLA for 311 Day 2016. We had an amazing time! The house is great, high ceilings and a lot of space. The beds are comfortable and the decor is cool. Sweet balcony to chill on and view the creepy church across the street. You could take a cab to save time but we walked almost every where. French Market, Bourbon and Frenchman Street are all walkable and the neighborhood had a lot of cool restaurants. We'll Def be back for 311 Day 2018!

Lovely stay at the gypsy house

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for my Bachelorette party and had an amazing time. We were a short cab drive away from the french quarter and the house was so spacious and roomy we didn't feel crowded and there were 6 of us! I was excited to learn solange Knowles (beyonces sister)was married across the street. This place was a dream I would love to stay here again!

Funkadelic place in a Funkadelic neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

its just as advertised....upstairs bedroom is a little difficult with low ceilings in bathroom, but was clean and comfortable. We did not cook, or hang in condo much. Neighborhood restaurants were great, especially Cake Cafe!

Faubourg Marigny is a wonderful eclectic historical neighborhood located only 10 blks from the French Quarter. This area is set up to be able to walk or ride a bike to many restaurants, grocery, and bars. It has a lovely European feel to it. Yoga studio is 2 blks away, fun vintage shops a few blks away......Frenchman St. is my favorite area to listen to live music- 8 blks away.

Other Activities: French Quarter shopping, cemetery tour, swamp tour, plantation tour
