About this listing
Come stay at my spacious (1,100 sq ft) and accommodating 160 year old shotgun house in the vibrant Bywater community of New Orleans. The house is a one bedroom with a living room, dining room, full kitchen and two bathrooms. The living room is equipped with a sleeper sofa which can be used as a bedroom (full bathroom next to it).
Guests enjoy a vast amount of space rarely enjoyed on vacations and all the conveniences of home.
The neighborhood is amazing. The Mississippi river runs right by the house. Boats and breeze make you feel a part of the city and its history.
Guests can roll right out bed and across the street to Elizabeth's for duck confit waffles and praline cooked bacon after dancing the night away at any of the neighborhood's great music venues. Vaughn's is swinging on Thursday night when Kermit Ruffins hits the floor. Mimi's is always on time but especially so on Saturdays when DJ Soul Sister kicks out the rare grooves. The outdoor patio at Bacchanal is just blocks away and always has great wine by the bottle and even better live music. Coffee shops, galleries, and cool junk stores are all in the neighborhood and just steps from your door.
Travel and Leisure Magazine have voted Elizabeths one of the best brunch restaurants in America.
The French Quarter is a beautiful walk or bike/bus ride away... but you wont want to leave the neighborhood.
We also rent bikes for $15 a day!
