A full apartment in a great location.
You will be hard pressed to find anything this size and this close to the heartbeat of the musical, gastronomic and cultural delights of New Orleans at this price point. Just 3 blocks to the French Quarter, 1 block from Louis Armstrong Park and 2 blocks from Esplanade, you're smack dab in the middle of trendy Treme, while being an easy stroll or bike ride to the French Quarter, the Marigny or Frenchman St for a nightly musical smorgasbord.
Seeking a single/couple of nonsmoking guests who can appreciate a clean and comfortable respite.
Full kitchen set up with utensils and basic cooking equipment, coffee maker, tea kettle, microwave and fridge.
Open plan lounge/dining furnished with leather sofa, kitchen table and chairs.
free wifi access, dvd and shelf stereo.
dvd screen and modest selection of dvds
4 poster queen bed with memory foam mattress
bath/shower, toilet and vanity with storage
Shiros Apartment is the last of 3 apartments in a long, narrow building facing the back courtyard corner. The bedroom has an attached porch, few chairs and table for relaxing 'neath the shade of some huge trees and greenery. The backyard is shared and a tranquil retreat in the middle of a very central city location. A picnic table, sun umbrella and hammock are nestled for communal use in the back courtyard corner.
Two night minimum preferred. If this accommodation is not available for the dates you seek, please check out my 3 other listings on the same property.
Guests have access to their private apartment and are welcome to use the back yard area that is a shared common area for the home. The apartment has wifi and access to a large and diverse DVD collection.
Parking in standard, free, on-street parking. There is typically ample space directly in front of the home. Parking during busier times of the year (i.e. Mardi Gras) can be more difficult.
Interaction with Guests
Guests are given directions/information on how to let themselves into the unit. We have normal work lives; however, live on property and are easily available to answer any questions, say hello or chat. Level of interaction once on property is totally up to each guest's preference.
Our home is in the historic Treme neighborhood. Treme is definitely a neighborhood in transition and is full of character. If you are expecting pristine looking homes and perfectly groomed lawns, Treme is not the neighborhood for you. Feel free to research more online about the neighborhood.

This was a great place to stay and walking distance from the Garden District. Whitney and her husband were extremely helpful and accommodating! They had left some coffee and soda in the fridge as a welcome gift and helped us with transportation. They have a cute table outside with DVD's which I thought was very thoughtful! The lights at night coming in were a nice addition and all in all I had a wonderful experience!
Whitney's place was so perfect! It's in a great location and the apartment itself was clean, comfortable, and quiet. We loved using the backyard to do mini workouts in the morning, too. The French Quarter and Bourbon Street are very close. Whitney and her husband, Tom, were very accommodating and helpful with recommendations. We would definitely stay here again in the future!
Tom and Whitney were gracious and accommodating hosts. We took a redeye and they gladly allowed us to store a bag since we meandered to the French quarter. Same when we checked out. The place is amazing so comfy and cozy in the Jacuzzi bath is the bomb!
Shiro's Apartment was perfect for our long weekend in New Orleans. It was clean, comfortable, conveniently located, and the price was just right. Whitney was a very responsive and accommodating host and we would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to the city.
We enjoyed our stay at Shiro's Apartment. The unit was clean and comfortable, and provided easy access to the French Quarter. Whiney provided clear instructions for us ahead of time: check-in and check-were easy. She was also helpful organizing a swmp tour for us.
Shiro's apartment is roomy, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is so well equipped, and the bed is so soft and amazing to sleep on. For a location so close to the French Quarter, it is surprisingly hidden away and quiet, yet still a short walk to everything you could need. I enjoyed watching the spectacular sunset from the balcony of the apartment. I would highly recommend Shiro's to anyone looking to stay in the area, and am thankful to Whitney and her husband for being great hosts.
My friend and I lived in Shiro's apartment for three nights when we visited New Orleans this February. It offered everything we expected: cozy room, convenient commute, and very residential vibe. We did feel at home! Thanks, Whitney. If we re-visit New Orleans at some point in the future, we will definitely choose your apartment again!

My name is Whitney and I am a New Orleans transplant. Originally from North Carolina- I have lived in New Orleans since July 2010. Although I miss North Carolina often, I have fallen in love with New Orleans- the food, the spirit of the people, the music, the culture, the history, the tradition and even my husband, Tom! New Orleans has treated me well and I hope to repay it the favor for many years to come.
I have been an airbnb host since July 2012. The property was first listed on airbnb by the previous owner "Belinda." We want to be able to provide all of our guests with a quiet, nice and convenient place to stay as they take in all that New Orleans has to offer.
We hope to meet with you soon and help to make your New Orleans experience memorable.
Whitney (& Tom) :)
