Enjoy your stay in New Orleans in the historic Faubourg Treme neighborhood in a renovated 1 bedroom/1bathroom unit complete with fully equipped kitchen (stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator), washer/dryer access, queen sized bed, cable, and internet. The bathroom has both a shower and a bathtub however we do not provide toiletries or a hairdryer.
The unit 1 of 4 apartments in a renovated building originally built in 1832. The neighborhood itself is a very eclectic mix which includes everything from young families, singles, young couples, and families who have been in the neighborhood since the start of it's existence. The area is rich in history, culture, and tradition. It is not odd to see a second line parade during your stay or to hear the sounds of a brass band in the distance. The Candlelight Lounge is located just a block away and is home to many brass band staples in New Orleans including The Treme Brass band who plays every Wednesday night without fail. Tenants in the building are respectful but be aware the the building definitely has a "lived in" feel. There are times when you can hear the other tenants walking about or talking or playing music. Bottom line is that the house is old but that's what makes your stay even that much more authentic. Most of the homes here are set up this way and what seems normal to us may be a little out of the ordinary to anyone visiting!
You are walking distance from the French Quarter and popular areas such as Frenchmen Street, the French Market, The Faubourg Marigny, The Riverwalk, Decatur Street, Bourbon Street, Royal Street, and Armstrong Park to name a few. Just a few blocks away (walking distance), there are 2 museums that you must visit: The Backstreet Cultural Museum and The New Orleans African American Museum. Treme Coffeehouse is located on the corner and offers great coffee, sandwiches, and free internet. One of the BEST restaurants in the city is just up the street and is called MeauxBar. You MUST eat there before leaving! Also Lil' Dizzy's is a few blocks away on Esplanade and is must do for authentic southern cooking, some of the best fried chicken you've ever eaten, and great breakfast.
We recommend cabbing to anywhere that is not in walking distance. Public transportation is available nearby but is a bit cumbersome and it's well worth the extra money to experience a Nola cabbie! Pedicabs are also EVERYWHERE and they are very happy to have your business. The streetcar is about a 20 minute walk away on Canal Street is definitely a must on your to-do list during your visit.
**Holidays and festivals are subject to a 3 night minimum stay as well as a higher rate. Please inquire if you are wanting to stay during a special event period.
Leah's little apartment on St Phillips was perfect for our trio. Plenty of room to cook, hang out and sleep. Leah herself was very communicative and helpful.
I would definitely like to have her as a host on my next trip to New Orleans :)
Always a great host and a fantastic location
Leah was a friendly and accessible host who made sure everything went smoothly. The apt is clean, comfortable, and charming, and an easy cab ride to/from the French Quarter. Would definitely consider staying there again.
Our stay here helped make our NOLA visit a great experience. The location couldn't be easier to get to (in a city where streets run off in all directions), parking wasn't a problem and the apartment was roomy, clean, quiet, comfortable and convenient. The French Quarter is only a short distance away yet it's easy to get to and from the other interesting surrounding neighborhoods without having to deal with the congestion there. Though we didn't meet her, she was a great host with quick and helpful answers to a couple of questions we had during our stay. Highly recommended.
Clean, neat apartment with plenty of room. Neighborhood was great during the day, very short walk from multiple neighborhoods including the French Quarter. Nice coffeeshop for breakfast on the same block. I took cabs home late at night (there was literally no one else in sight on the walk home so I felt a bit vulnerable, but I may have just been overly cautious). Leah was very available - we didn't need anything in particular from her, but she immediately responded to texts on arrival and checkout.
It is very well located, I needed a taxi only to go from the airport and to back to it. The French quarter is very easily accessible on foot, 10 to 15 minutes walk max. The place is very clean, the neighborhood is reasonable, and it is quiet. We Were in 3 and it was very comfortable and could sleep four people altogether easily and comfortably. I felt the lack of a microwave oven which would've been helpful with warming dishes up. You can hear the neighbors, but overall they are not too noisy. And anyway you will be so tired from walking all over New Orleans you won't even pay attention.
My boyfriend and I had a great time staying at Leah's apartment in Treme. It was only a 15-20 minute walk from the French Quarter and very close by to Louis Armstrong Park. The apartment was clean and spacious and the kitchen was well-stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses etc. You can hear the neighbors moving around and talking, but that didn't bother us much. I was more surprised by the sounds of the house itself creaking because I've lived in brick buildings my whole life. The central air was also a welcome feature--wasn't expecting summer temperatures at the end of October! Leah also left great visitor information, which was very helpful especially because we hadn't done that much planning. We did have a little bit of trouble finding a grocery store close by, but we managed to find a few convenience stores that sold eggs, bread and canned soup. You should definitely to go to Lil Dizzy's -- great food and good prices!
We had a very good time during our stay here. The apartment was much larger than expected and perfect for our needs. The French Quarter is a pretty short walk away. The only times we used a cab service were late at night. Leah was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions or requests that we had. We even locked ourselves out at one point while leaving for dinner. Leah came by and put the key back in the lock box on the door long before we returned.
We loved our stay here! Leah was very informative. The house was clean and spacious. A close walk to the French Quarter but just far enough to be away from the noisy streets. Cute cafe just up the block.
We enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was large and well air-conditioned, and the bed was comfy. Leah was quick to respond to our texts and helped us out with everything we needed.
