About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

In the heart of the French Quarter, this lovely and secluded pied a terre is just four and a half blocks away from Jackson Square and ½ a block from Armstrong Park. Dating back to the early 1800’s, this stucco structure was the slave quarter to the main house, and both are excellent examples of early Creole architecture. The neighborhood was that of free people of color and the famed Voodoo priestess, Marie Laveau, lived just two doors away. This beautifully furnished and appointed residence sleeps five and consists of two bedrooms with one bath between and a large fully furnished kitchen. A balcony with stunning roof top views is accessible from both bedrooms and overlooks a large courtyard that guests have full access to. There are laundry facilities on the premises. Cable and internet are both provided

Great location great host!

  • 5 of 5

This early Creole house is in a great location with a private court yard that provides for some rest and relaxation after a long day/night in the French Quarter. The home sleeps 4 comfortable, 5 if you use the day bed in the living room but that would be tight with one bathroom.

The home is well stocked with the necessities and Lee will accommodate any check out time..

I highly recommend this home, we will be back!

Great French Quarter Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We met another couple down in the French Quarter for 4 days, and this place was fantastic for our needs. It has a great location, and Lee is a great hostess. She was just across the courtyard, available for any questions we had, and left us to our own devices, outside of a few recommendations when we arrived. Check in and out instructions were clearly communicated, and we had everything we needed (toilet paper, towels, etc.) in the place itself.

There is a full kitchen, though we only utilized the fridge and freezer, and the bedrooms are quite nice, upstairs. The bathroom was clean, and the shower was superior anything in a hotel. The only word of caution I will provide is to agree with other reviewers about the staircase: it is super steep, super narrow, and the stair steps are very shallow. People with mobility issues (which included us after drinking on Bourbon St.) may have issues with the stairs.

The AC works great, and felt great after roaming the French Quarter in the summer heat. There is a convenience store one block away on Burgundy, and Bourbon St. is within stumbling distance. Our friends drove their car down and used Lee's parking pass, but we did not drive at all. We walked the entire time and it was perfect. We would not only recommend this place, we plan to stay again in the future.

Oh, also, because so many other reviews have mentioned him, Elliot the dog is adorable and charming. He likes to visit, but knows when to leave. My type'a dog. :)

Bravo

  • 5 of 5

My longest lifetime friend and I decided to meet in a city where we really have not explored. After looking at hotel rates, we decided to have a little more character. Boom. Slave Quarters it is. Dip into history and dip into location. We didn't know it was minutes from our preferred gay friendly bars and lots of eateries.

Lee was fantastic and when arriving was welcoming and filled with suggestions of what to do since it was our first time there.

The beds were comfy. Stairs a little steep at times for our old joints but we loved the quiet so we could talk and unwind after a day of walking, eating and social drinking.

Bravo!

The best of all locations!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in the Quarter, from one end to another, numerous times, I can attest that this truly is the best accommodation ever! The listing description was spot-on and though I had been just a touch concerned about being so close to Ramparts St., it actually ended up feeling totally safe and secure. You can walk to everything in the Quarter and the Marigny from this location in the quiet part of the Quarter, the cottage is comfortable with a full kitchen (which our group took full advantage of), and you can’t beat the gorgeous, tranquil courtyard setting and balcony. The owner, Lee, is amazing – making sure at every turn that our group (two 60-somethings and three 30-somethings) had, or could easily get, everything we needed for our stay. She also had that perfect balance of being warm and friendly without being intrusive in any way and, prior to the trip, she promptly responded to all inquiries and was just a joy to work with. I have already recommended the property to my New Orleans-going friends and would definitely stay here again and hope to do so soon.

Loved it! 5++++ stars!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property. Close enough to the action but still quiet enough to sleep at night. Lee was amazing. She was helpful every step of the way. She gave us great recommendations. Elliot, her dog, was a bonus! We are all dog lovers and enjoyed his company. The property does sleep 5, but if you are going with three kids be aware that the single bed is down on the main level while the other two bedrooms are upstairs. Not at all a deal breaker but could be an issue if you have kids that spook easy. We would stay here again and would recommend this property to friends.
