Property Details

Updated: Jul 27, 2016
New Orleans, Louisiana

This property resides on the lovely streets Oak-lined streets of Carrollton, a historic summer destination for the educated residents of New Orleans. Beautiful Victorians line this streetcar boulevard where your home away from home awaits.  

This 3 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment is one of six flats in a lovely historic home that has been faithfully restored to it's original grandeur with a mix of historic charm and modern flair. Featuring 2 master bedrooms, each with a Queen bed, full-closet and one with an en-suite full bath. A junior bedroom also features 2 Twin beds and a full-closet.

Here you'll find plenty of room for all to gather and pass an evening, host a dinner party, or settle in for a quiet dinner for two. Spacious yet intimate, the 'Americana' is perfect for families or several couples traveling together.

Before being annexed by the city of New Orleans, the town of Carrollton was a summer resort community where the well-to-do vacationed and enjoyed the shady woodlands, meadows and breezes from the nearby Mississippi river. The 'Americana' is just a stone's throw from the well-known Palmer Park, which hosts many community and cultural events with art and live music. The St. Charles Streetcar near the property is the oldest streetcar line in the world!

Hi Lenora,



We arrived home last night from the Big Easy a little tired, a few pounds heavier (ha ha) but full to the brim of wonderful memories. I just wanted to say “Thank you” for hosting us for our NOLA vacation.



The Americana was perfect for us and was so convenient to the festival site and everything else we wanted to see. We had such a great time and totally fell in love with your city, the neighbouhood and the lovely people that we met.



I sure hope that we get back there someday soon.



Rick thinks that next time he would love to spend a couple of months.



Guess I better buy a lottery ticket today!! :-)



Best regards,

Perfect rental for NOLA festivities!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a prefect apartment for our group! Small kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and a little hangout area. The key code door allowed for easy access and it was right by a bus stop and the train car. The only negative thing was the dishwasher didn't work, but that wasn't a huge deal. Loved this apartment!!

Cute apartment in safe neighborhoood

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is very close to the street car, which can take you into the French Quarter. Easy check-in with password and wifi was good. It was big enough to accommodate my party of five, but it could have definitely accommodated 6. I really appreciated the small little details, such as the house gift of small bottles of wine and chocolate. Off street parking was great, since we rented a vehicle. Overall, this was a great getaway from home.

Ehhhhhh

  • 2 of 5

I wasn't overly impressed with our stay. I never felt like the place was clean and I really wanted to go buy new sheets because it just all smelled dusty, old and not clean. I was ready to get out of there. Not to mention my allergies went crazy because it was so dusty. I wouldn't recommend staying here. We had to take a lot of ubers because we didn't feel super safe in the area.

We loved our stay

  • 4 of 5

The property was just as described, clean and filled with everything we needed. Parking is a bit bad but not terrible. The upstairs neighbors were very noisy early in the morning as early as 5am, it sounded like they were moving furniture. We drove to the French Quarter because the street car operator said the ride was about 40 minutes as opposed to the 8 minute drive. Suggestions for the future, a mop, a medium sized sauce pan, a door for the closet in the master bedroom. We loved it. Easy access to enter. We would stay again.

We loved our stay

  • 4 of 5

The property was just as described, very comfortable and clean. It felt like home. The people upstairs were noisy each day very early in the morning but otherwise, easy access, everything we needed except for a mop and a medium sauce pan. I would definitely use it again. Oh yeah, the dining room table needs to be replaced, it's very unstable and dangerous in our opinion. We drove to The French Quarter only because the street car operator said the ride was about 40 minutes as opposed to about 6 minutes drive.

Very nice place to stay near the city

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was very nice and clean. It was very convenient to get on the St. Charles street car to get to the city. The small bathroom shower could use a new floor and there were weeds outside the doorway. Also the front door needs to be reinforced it was very loose. We did enjoy our stay.
