About this listing
1860's Greek Revival 3 Bedroom offering one queen and two double beds. 2 bathrooms and 1 half bathroom. Two blocks to restaurants and shops in a vibrant section of Magazine Street! Beautiful garden and patio. Great kitchen for gathering or cooking.
The house is centrally located, with quick access to all N.O. neighborhoods. Only 10 minute drive to French Quarter. The house has a TV, wireless internet, washer/dryer, off-street parking, sheets, towels, etc. $2,800/month (utilities included) or $200 night. Send a message to Caroline with any questions.
The neighborhood is centrally located halfway between downtown/the French Quarter and Uptown/University area. It's also very close to the shops and restaurants on Magazine Street.
The house is located two blocks from Magazine Street, which offers a bus line from uptown to downtown. It's also easy to walk through the beautiful Garden District to the streetcar on St. Charles Avenue, which also travels between uptown and downtown.
Besides the obvious - respecting the property and our furniture, objects, etc, I don't have a lot of rules. I do prefer if you smoke outside.
I absolutely loved this place! The house is beautiful and Caroline was a terrific host. It's a house that feels like a home. The location is convenient to the French Quarter and is only two blocks from Magazine Street bars, shops and restaurants. If you prefer an authentic local experience in New Orleans, it's the perfect alternative to the raucous, puke-in-the-street vibe of the Quarter.
The house itself is charming, well-appointed and larger than the photos indicate. It features hardwood floors, large rooms, high ceilings, and a smart blend of classic and modern decor. It even has a piano.
Our group of five - two couples and a single - had plenty of room to stretch out without disturbing each other. We usually gathered in the bright, spacious kitchen, which has a view of the private yard and garden (and bromeliads!). The bedrooms and bathrooms are spread across different areas of the house, with a full bath on each floor and a half bath in the smaller upstairs bedroom. There is also a parking space available, which was perfect since we rented a car.
Caroline made check in & check out very easy, and texted during our stay to make sure that everything was OK. We also visited several of the places she listed in the Guidebook for the area, and found all of her recommendations to be solid.
In all, everyone in our group adored Caroline's home, and I definitely recommend it. It would also be ideal for a long-term rental. This will be the first place I check before I book my next trip to New Orleans.
Caroline made it very easy to check in and check out with very flexible hours. Her mother and family live next door and they made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of tips about where to go and what to see. The house is lovely, very large and comfortable. There are three nice bedrooms. The beds upstairs are very comfortable but better for children or one person in each room. The downstairs bedroom is great for a couple and very pleasant. The neighborhood is delightful and we felt completely safe and comfortable walking during the day and late evening. Magazine street with all it's wonderful restaurants and shops is only 2 blocks away. There is a bus running on Magazine and the street car is only another few blocks through the beautiful Garden District.
We had a lovely experience at this house. It was spacious and comfortable; convenient to everything we were doing. We enjoyed walking to District Donuts on Magazine St. in the morning and sitting on the back patio with a glass of wine in the evening.
Caroline was an excellent host--very responsive & flexible with our plans. We loved the house. Lots of space, beautiful kitchen, and a really friendly neighborhood. If you're looking for a local New Orleans experience (not Bourbon St. madness), this is the place to stay. It's a short walk up to Magazine St. and the streetcar. Lots of local bars, shops, and exploring--we had a great time!
This house just off Magazine Street is a wonderful place to stay in New Orleans. It's within walking distance of dozens of stores, restaurants, bars, and the historic Garden District. The house also makes it easy to get to both the French Quarter and uptown near Tulane and Audubon Park (either by car or trolley). I was there with my wife and year-old son, and we always felt safe. The inside is all hardwood floors and feels very much like a home. There is a huge kitchen, laundry, and even a piano.
Caroline was welcoming and helpful. She was always there if we needed anything, but was never intrusive. Obtaining the key and getting into the place was easy, as was checking out.
All in all, we had a fantastic stay, and I'd highly recommend this location to anyone interested in a trip to New Orleans!
As a native New Orleanian, I can say that the Irish Channel is the best spot to see New Orleans. You can easily get to Magazine or hop a trolley and get down to the Quarter or go Uptown to great restaurants. And I would definitely recommend Caroline's home as the place to stay while you are in New Orleans. The house is really spacious and very comfortable. It is a beautiful home. Caroline was very attentive and gave us lots of great ideas for restaurants and things to do. My family stayed there for a month and we are looking forward to returning as soon as possible. I highly recommend Caroline's place for anyone looking for the ultimate vacation experience in New Orleans. No need to look elsewhere on Airbnb, this is the best place in New Orleans.
Great house in a great area.
The French Quarter may be interesting but if you want to experience how the locals live you wont be disappointed. It's only two blocks below Magazine Street and dozens of shops, bars, and restaurants. Walk a few more blocks to get to the street car and all the Garden District has to offer.
We especially enjoyed the two hour walking tour of the Garden District ((website hidden)_set.html)
