What you should know. This neighborhood like most in the city of New Orleans is culturally diverse, up and coming, and in a state of gentrification. In short, you must be comfortable with being exposed to all walks of life.

Also it is important to understand the lay out of the house. It is a classic New Orleans architecture style known as a Shotgun House. Meaning you walk through each room to get to the next. There are no separate hallways.

Bonus. World famous street artist Banksy has a well known piece The Umbrella Girl on a building right across the street.

About the Owner

I have searched for a second home in this neighborhood for several years. I feel that I have found the perfect location, central to everything you need, and the peacefulness of a safe residential neighborhood. I am extending my home to you when I am not there because it is too beautiful not to share.

Great location and a nice house!

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well located on a short 15min walk from the action of Bourbon and Frenchman Streets. The owner Jesse is great to work with. This stay was a great value! The backyard courtyard and deck was really neat and the house was clean and modern on the inside. The corner store that is literally a stone's throw away from the house has AWESOME food including New York Times renowned Po' Boys and good breakfast for a fair price. I really think that if you have a small group up to 6 and want access to the French Quarter without the super high prices of the hotels then you will be pleased. I can't say it enough that the owner Jesse was excellent. He kept open communication and even answered a text at almost 1am! Enjoy New Orleans and stay at NOLA Smile!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I booked the house for a girls getaway as a surprise for my mother's birthday. Jesse was very helpful and always responded quickly when I emailed him. The location is great if you are looking to explore the French Quarter and the Marigny (locals neighborhood).

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great home base for our stay during Jazz Fest. The house is in great condition, with new kitchen and bathroom. Also has a giant patio for gatherings. Jesse was very easy to work with and accommodating. Frenchmen Street and the Jazz clubs are an easy walk, and right next door are some of the best shrimp po boys in town.

Had a great stay. Owner communicated very well. House in perfect location (walking distance to FQ and uptown) and is beautiful. Used the back yard more than I thought because it is such a wonderful space. Highly recommend and hope to be back again!
