If that's what you want, this has it.
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.

Awesome location and very comfortable place. Simply put, a perfect place to stay and experience New Orleans.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Shiro's apartment for my 30th birthday. The apartment looks exactly like the pictures portrayed. It to be. The access gate made us feel secure about staying in a new place as well. Tom and Whitney made the check in and check out process a complete breeze. Bourbon and Frenchman were both a 10 minute stroll from Shiro's as well. I would definitely stay here again on our next trip to NOLA.
We had a great time during our stay at Shiro's apartment. Whitney has a great set up here and made it very easy for us to check in and out of the rental. We felt very safe in this apartment and it is in a great location, just a quick stroll into the French Quarter and a short Uber to other attractions around the city. The rental provided us with the perfect space for 2 friends travelling together and we loved that it had a kitchen so we could spend a bit of down time (out of the heat) with the option of eating in the apartment. We fell in love with the city and the apartment alike and can't wait to return!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in New Orleans and were very comfortable in this apartment. We especially appreciated the good air-conditioning, as it was super hot when we were there. The apartment is conveniently located to the French Quarter. We walked in and out each day. We were travelling for an extended period of time so we enjoyed having the option to cook a meal in the apartment once in a while. The apartment has all the essentials. Whitney was amazingly helpful and always responded when we had questions and she even helped us book a tour, which was great. She was also very flexible and helpful when we needed to extend our stay for another night. We'd definitely recommend staying there.
Whitney was a great host. She was easy to communicate with both before and during our stay. The apartment was great! Prefect little set up, with a full kitchen and an outdoor area as well. We felt very safe on the property and would recommend it to anyone looking to stay close to the French quarter.
Whitney's apartment was extremely comfortable and modern. We were impressed by how well we slept on the comfortable bed and by how many neat places are near the apartment (Louis Armstrong Park, Voodoo Spiritual Temple, the "Orange Place" po boys, Port of Call burgers, etc.). It's a short walk to the French Quarter and in my mind, it's worth living in Treme and outside the tourist hub.
Shiro's Apartment was super cute and comfortable. It was located in the South Treme and within walking distance to the French quarter and Frenchman street. There are cool things to do nearby. Parking on the street was easy. The beverages in the fridge were a godsend, as was the provided coffee. The AC worked great. The decor and feel were super cool. The back patio was a nice added bonus. A quiet and comfortable place to stay in NOLA.

About the Host, Whitney
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) :)
