The perfect place for travelers who love a great deal, are looking for the real New Orleans, and like to have room to stretch out in. Close to everything, with the friendly vibe of old New Orleans.

The Space

A charming one bedroom with room for two couples or three friends, this apartment has a full kitchen, a lovely front porch for people watching, a clawfoot bathtub and lots of historic details like a french window, hard wood floors, high ceilngs and mantels in every room. The first room doubles as a front parlor with a futon that can be made into a double (full size) bed. The second room of the double parlor is an eat-in kitchen. There is a full closet to hang your clothes and the back room is a quiet bedroom with a queen sized bed. There is also a single studio day bed that can easily fit in either the front room or the bedroom, perfect for a toddler, child or small adult, if three friends want to all have their own bed.

The apartment in located in the Historic 7th Ward and is an easy walk to many historic neighborhoods, restaurants and coffee shops. There is on street parking and also proximity to buses and the Carrolton street car. City Park is a quick drive or a lovely walk and the French Quarter is close too. See Second Line Parades go down N. Broad St and experience the real New Orleans!

The host/owner lives in the double next door and is there to answer all you questions, make music and dining recommendations, give directions and help out if anything comes up. I might even be able to help you get to or from the airport or bus station!

Guest Access

The apartment is a self-contained, one bedroom apartment with a private entrance.

Interaction with Guests

As much or as little as you like. I live next door and am just a knock away.

The Neighborhood

Anybody in New Orleans will tell you how fiercely loyal people here are to their neighborhoods--and everyone is convinced that theirs is the best, me included. I have lived in the 7th Ward for 13 years, and I've watched as my neighborhood has come back stronger after Katrina (though you will still see the scars of the biggest hurricane in US history), while still keeping the best of the good old days.

Getting around

If you have your own car, the apartment is five minutes away from the French Quarter and Frenchmen St., ten minutes from most places in the Bywater, Uptown, and Mid-City. If you want to strictly walk everywhere, this is not your best bet. If you are an adventurous soul who enjoys being a little ways of the beaten path, you will find walking, taking the bus or a cab are very doable from my rental. The 91 bus can get you many great places fast. It does run on a schedule so you have to time it right. It doesn't run at night so most guest without a car take the bus out and cab it back at night. My apartment is very close to both I-10 and I-610 so getting in and out of town in a car is easy.

Other Things to Note

It's easy being green at my place. I use only earth-friendly cleaners like Murphy's Oil Soap and Seventh Generation cleaner. I use green laundry soap as well so you may not smell a detergent smell on the sheets and towels, but they are clean! We recycle plastic, paper and cardboard, and try to keep the apartment energy efficient.

  • The house was very charming and the trip went smoothly! The location made it easy to explore different parts of New Orleans by car and by foot. I am a runner and felt very safe running through the neighborhood and down Esplanade while staying at Ann Marie's. Great location, amazing price, and a wonderful host.

  • We had a very good time in Ann Maries house. Its was so cozy and nice there. We felt like at home. Everytime we had a nice parking place in front of the house. So close to all well known places, like the French Quarter and Frenchman Street. Ann Marie was a perfect host. She helped as with any advice we needed. We like to stay there again when we are back in New Orleans. Thank you so much Ann Marie.

  • We had a great time in New Orleans. Ann Marie's house was very spacious and we loved that is was so authentic. The neighbourhood was great too, everybody was so nice! The house is very well located (close to French quarter, which we loved) and we always felt safe. We certainly recommend the place!

  • Ann Marie's place truly is fun! We enjoyed staying with her very much. She was a kind host (we arrived late at night and she left the light on for us!)!

    We were able to discover New Orleans and the surrounding area, but at the end of the day we were happy to come "home" .

    Pro: fully equipped kitchen, comfy bed, nice porch and fun shower!

    Con: this will probably not concern everybody, but if you have a light sleep, I would recommend ear plugs as the air conditioning is loud. My husband didn't mind at all though!

    All in all, I would definitely recommend this place!

  • We really enjoyed New Orleans and it was great to be able to stay in a proper house in a proper neighbourhood. If we stayed again we would probably stay a bit closer to the main streets as we were told not to walk the neighbourhood at night, which is impossible when you are partying in New Orleans. There was one night where the taxi company refused to come to the area we were staying, we waited two hours and when we gave up we tried to order a pizza, they also didn't show up.

    However, we had no problems getting cabs back after an evening out.

    It was good to experience a proper neighbourhood and see some of real New Orleans, and Ann Marie was really friendly and helpful, even letting us into her home next door to go through some maps together.

    The apartment was very basic and it wasn't very clean but it felt like we had a true experience and we did have an incredible weekend.

    Response from Ann Marie:

    I was so sorry to hear that the apartment wasn't very clean. I had hired a cleaning lady to take care of some cleaning when I was very busy and she obviously had a different idea of clean than I do. To all prospective guests, be assured that the cleanliness of the apartment is incredibly important to me and you will find the apartment clean!

  • First the place is really gorgeous and comfortable. We felt at home right away! Ann Marie was great, gave us some tips on what was hapenning in the city while we were there and very quick to respond to emails if we had any questions.
    The place is located 40 minutes walking from the french quarter in a friendly neighbourhood. We were two girls by ourselves and felt very safe crossing the city in every direction!
    Thumbs up!

  • We did not get to meet Ann Marie as she was out of town for personal reasons, but she was quick in responding to our messages and questions during the reservation process. She was also king enough to help us with our travelling arrangements from and back to the airport and giving us clear instructions to get there.

    Her apartment was equipped adequately with most of what was needed for 2 persons who want to eat home, although the cooking, dinnerware and utensils were in limited quantities. Unfortunately, we must say that the apartment itself was not very clean when we arrived...maybe because Ann Marie never had a chance to check after the previous visitors left.

    As far as location is concerned, it is close to bus stops taking you to the main attractions, but for those who prefer to walk like we do, you have to be in good shape as it takes a bit more than 30 minutes to get there in a quick walking mode and not afraid of walking through some of the more impoverished areas of NO.

  • We spent great time in New Orleans. Ann Marie's place is wonderful: rooms are really huge, clean and well decorated. There are conditioners and ventilators in every room, which protected us from New Orlean's heat.

    House located in nice area. It is a little far from city center, but wasn't a problem for us. It was also interesting to see true city life and explored beatiful New Orlean's stilish houses around.

    May 2014
  • Ann Marie's place was fantastic! Exactly as described, we had everything we needed. It was comfortable, cozy, and convenient. We were able to walk to Jazz Fest each day and felt perfectly safe. She also had a lot of info and recommendations that were really helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come again!

About
After having many great experiences staying with airbnb hosts, I decided to go ahead and list my own house. I hope I can provide someone with a truly authentic New Orleans experience in a clean, quixotic, comfortable, historic home. Ask me anything about New Orleans culture and music; I can't wait to meet some new airbnb friends.
