Property Details

Updated: Oct 9, 2016
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

One word for this place... (ok... maybe 3 or 4): Hip, Best Location, True New Orleans Living. It is perfection!

Let's take one thing at a time.

Hip: We decorated this condo for maximum comfort and feeling like you are in a bright, beautiful and welcoming home. Lots of local art and comfortable furniture to hang out on. Make yourself a cocktail in front or grill some fresh fish from the Big Fisherman (right there on Magazine) with a cold beer or daiquiri in back. This place is designed for hanging out and feeling like a local.

Best Location: There is no better location in New Orleans. It is quiet and historic, but with everything you need at your fingertips. Watch the parades and walk back to use the bathroom or chill out. Wander through the shops and eat your way through town without needing a cab or a car. This is the Irish Channel... a historical and eclectic neighborhood with all the funk you need within a few blocks. Plenty of parking in front.

True New Orleans Living: Whether you just want to hang out in the condo and read or go listen to brass bands til 3AM, this condo lets you do it all. Your neighbors all live and work in New Orleans and there are very few tourists around. You can truly feel and live like a local.

Note... this area of town is on high ground was not flooded!

About the Owner

My husband and I have owned this place since 2005. We renovated the condos and sold them off, keeping one for ourselves as a getaway from grown-up-land. We are excited to share it with you!

Guestbook comments from the manager

OK. We LOVED this place. It is beautiful. Wood floors, old world feeling, very hip. Magazine street is amazing and right there. We found the kitchen totally fine and great. The back patio is funky and fun and cozy and private. Yay! Definitely coming back.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage was clean and had all we needed to feel at home. It was in a great location and we walked to Magazine St. to shop and eat out. We definitely recommend it for a weekend getaway. Jenny was always available if we needed help, but we didn't. Loved it!

It was easy to find and get into. Jenny is easy to work with and accommodating. The neighborhood has a lot of character and the neighbors were nice. The community in the area has a lot charisma and we would stay there again.

My husband and I just got home from staying here for 4 nights. We loved it! Very cute and clean. Perfect size for the two of us and the price was right! Just a few blocks from Magazine Street and we felt safe walking in the dark. Quick responses from owner. Absolutely no complaints! :)

Authentic New Orleans, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This Creole cottage was absolutely perfect for my family of 4. My 4 year old absolutely loved staying in a real New Orleans shotgun cottage as opposed to a traditional hotel. All the modern conveniences are here; directv, comfy bed and futon, extra linens, pack and play for my 1 year old (Thank you Jenny! We forgot ours at home) coffee maker, cold AC, cooktop, microwave, fridge, washer/dryer and a beautifully remodeled bathroom. The cottage itself is all up to date and the Irish Chanel is right in the middle of everything yet one of the quietest neighborhoods in town. It was perfect! You can walk to several restaurants and the St. Charles streetcar is a 3 minute drive away. Parking was easy and free! Thanks again Jenny, we will be back.

Perfect location, has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We rented this perfect little place for a convention at the convention center. It was just about 5 minutes away from the center with a Walmart in between. Very close to all the fun in New Orleans but away from all the noise and crowds. We enjoyed hanging out on the quiet patio in the back. If you are going to New Orleans, definitely check this property out!! It was very clean and had anything you could possibly need on a get-away waiting for you.

From the Owner

This is our favorite part of New Orleans. It is quiet, eclectic, historic and near everything we love. Walk to the parades or chill out at one of the bars only a few short blocks away.

You will feel like a real local. Stuff yourself in one of the incredible restaurants and stagger home for a nice nap in the air conditioning. No matter what time of year, something fun is always happening in New Orleans!
