Senator's New Orleans Charm in Beautiful Uptown

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 28, 2016
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Relax on the brick courtyard under stately oaks in Uptown New Orleans; just blocks to St. Charles and Magazine Streets. Live like a local New Orleanian, soaking in the tropical atmosphere of the Old South at this spacious and accommodating abode. This charming 1880s home, once owned by a Senator has been charmingly renovated in 2008 and 2009. Included are fabulous makeovers in the new kitchen with granite counter tops, bedrooms, and baths...renovated to perfection!

Beautiful pine floors, original to the house glisten. This stately home features original cast iron fencing and a gate, an old St. Louis brick pathway to the courtyard, stained glass up the stairwell, high ceilings, ceiling fans, a fireplace, transoms, and with all the fine amenities to make your stay enjoyable and memorable.

This comfortable atmosphere has the features of home with a furnished kitchen with all new appliances including a full-size microwave, dishwasher, stove, coffee maker, hot water dispenser, and disposal. Coin-operated washers and dryers are on the property for your use. All these features comfortably accommodates up to 5 guests.

This home is surrounded by the ole New Orleans charm with streetcars just two blocks away that will take you to many destinations throughout the city including the French Quarter, Superdome, Canal Street, Lower Garden District, Central Business District, City Park, Audubon Zoo, and historical cemeteries. The streetcar would be a great choice to take you to the historic universities Loyola, Tulane, and Xavier. Magazine Street is two blocks in the other direction which is well known for its eclectic shops, antiques, French pastries, and local restaurant favorites. Visit New Orleans, for pleasure or business, and you will find a relaxing and comforting environment that welcomes you back again.

Perfect, Quiet Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Liz and MJ made the stay so easy! Even with our late plans and late arrival they made the process so smooth. It's a great unit with a nice bed and two fold-outs. The back balcony and patio are a nice touch and a fun place to wind down the night. The neighborhood is super safe and the house is right along the Mardi Gras parade route. No trouble parking our car either. It's about a 5 min walk to the streetcar and a 30-45 min beautiful ride through the Garden District to Canal Street and the French quarter. Some wonderful restaurants and coffee shops nearby too. Can't begin to say how easy and welcoming they made our first homeaway experience. Thanks!!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We had enjoyed our stay at The Napoleon House! It was very clean and in a great location to ride the Street Car or take a walk along Magazine! Looking forward to visiting NOLA again and would love to stay at Napoleon again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything we expected just a couple blocks to the street car and a safe and beautiful neighborhood. I emailed many listings for our stay but Liz was the only one with a quick response and every question I had in the days that followed were answered right away. You will not be disappointed there is so much to see in N.O its unreal. The city tour was great and WW2 museum very interesting the french quarter you have to be there to believe it we had a blast. Thanks Liz for a great place to stay and your acknowlegment of our daughters service to our country, we'll be back to N.O but this time for longer.

forget the hotels, stay at the Napoleon House

  • 5 of 5

Couple at Rotary Convention late May 2011.

This was our first experiment in renting a flat instead of a hotel and we consider it a roaring success. Liz and MJ are super pro. Everything in the place was as you see it, fully functional and the location is ideal for viewing great architecture and stunning beautiful mansions. Super convenient proximity to grocery, restaurants, St. Charles street car, Magazine St. We felt 100% safe and not like we were in tourist world at all but the tourist stuff is only a quick streetcar ride away $1.25. I'm recommending Napoleon House to everyone.

I think we were spoiled.

NOLA vacation review

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and well maintained. We stayed here with 3 teenagers. We had a rental car and had no problems with parking.The Audubon Park, French Quarter etc are a trolley ride away. We used the car to visit the Laura plantation and the Honey Wagner swamp tour and some restuarants (Surrey, The Joint, St.James Cheese) . The property has a steep staircase and the bedroom is upstairs. This did not cause an issue for us, but may for some others.We had enough room, just enough. We went to Whole Food for groceries and it was expensive. Walmart was good for basics. The apartment was good and all the places we visited were good. Weather was good. We had a great vacation. This property was a good value for us.

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in November 2010, while attending a conference. The condo has all the historic charm promised, and modern conveniences expected. Plenty of room for two adults - we stayed in separate rooms. The location was just right - far enough from the conference to not feel like we were living there, and yet close enough by public transit to get there quickly. Rode the trolley to and from the conference, which only added to the overall experience. In the evenings you can ride all the way to the French Quarter. The neighborhood is very interesting and we felt safe the entire time. Walking distance to grocery shopping and restaurants. The owner was very friendly and professional. All in all - I highly recommend this place, and would definitely stay here again if I come back to the wonderful New Orleans!
