My two-story home is nestled in the diverse and vibrant MidCity neighborhood. The house comfortably sleeps 4-6 adults. You will be centrally located to New Orleans's best sites, restaurants, and festivals.

The Space

Welcome to my two-bedroom, two-story, historic New Orleans apartment. Nestled in MidCity, it's easy to access all of New Orleans, by car, public transit, or bicycle.

There is a full size bed in the master bedroom, a full size bed in the second bedroom and a full size futon in the living room. The maximum number of guests is six.

My house has a full kitchen, washer/dryer, large living room, wifi, fenced-in backyard with herb garden and grill, and two full bathrooms. There's lots of New Orleans character: hard wood floors, high ceilings, chimney mantles and large windows. While here, make yourself at home and use the kitchen and help yourself to complimentary cold-brew ice coffee. Feel free to cook in the gourmet kitchen; help yourself to the pantry staples and the spice rack.

Car parking is on the street. You are welcome to stow bicycles inside.

My neighborhood is centrally located and great for exploring. City Park, Bayou St. John, and the Fairgrounds are less than ten blocks away. Canal Street street car line is ten blocks away, and the French Quarter is about two miles away-- a quick bike or cab ride. There are restaurants, bars, cafes, a wine shop, several small groceries, and a Whole Foods within walking distance.

I work for a local company that makes vintage-inspired handmade fashion accessories, and I teach hooping classes at Tulane University and throughout the city.

While he won't be present during your stay, there is a resident 13 year old miniature poodle- he doesn't shed and is "hypoallergenic."

Guest Access

The whole house is yours: do some morning stretches in the back yard, linger over coffee on the front porch, lounge in the living room, enjoy a snack at the kitchen table. Make yourself at home.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is diverse in income, age, and race. There are lots of attractions and resources within walking distance.

Getting around

There's a bus stop about 5 blocks away that runs to the Quarter.
The Canal Street Streetcar is 10 blocks from my house (about 1 mile). This is really fun, (but not reliable later in the evening).
For a taxi downtown, it's about $10-$20 , depending on where you're heading.
If you choose to rent a car, there is street parking available on my block.
It's $30 for a cab to/from the airport.
If you're looking for a bike rental and tour shop, I recommend Confederacy of Cruisers.

Other Things to Note

My booking policy requires guests to have at least two of the following: multiple profile verifications ((website hidden), phone, or email), positive reviews from previous AirBnB stays, and a profile photo of themselves. I require this information to insure the safety and security of my home, but also to feel confident that the guest is a good fit for the house and will be happy and comfortable with their stay. The more information you put into your profile, the easier it will be for you to search and book the best listing for your needs.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a wonderful time! Great location, great space! Very comfortable and welcoming. We look forward to staying here again next year! Easy, easy walk to Jazzfest and the Community Coffee House :)

  • This is a perfect house for Jazz Fest; it has a very funky, New Orleans vibe and is less than a 10 minute walk to the fairgrounds.

    Jennette was very accommodating - we arrived very late in the evening and were greeted with snacks and beer. I will definitely look into renting this house again for Jazz Fest.

  • My boyfriend, his mother and brother, and I stayed here for the weekend while we were in the city for a wedding. At first, my boyfriend's mom seemed a little hesitant about the neighborhood, but we quickly found out the neighbors were more than friendly (and very helpful during our hunt for an iron!). Jennette was a great host - left lots of notes to help guide us around the house and left out a map along with information about things to do in the area. The house was also pretty close to the French Quarter, which is was nice as that is where we spent most of our time. Overall, it was a very nice place to stay!

  • This was a lovely place to stay! The space is welcoming and comfortable. It was very clean and tidy with a reasonable amount of street/city sounds. Jennette is a very conscientious host. The guest room was stocked with literature on the wonders of the city. The location is very centralized - it was easy to navigate the city on bikes and the street car stop was only a short walk away. We enjoyed the stay and will certainly choose to say here again!

  • Jennette is a great host. I traveled to New Orleans with two friends to celebrate one's pending nuptials. We thoroughly enjoying our stay at this location. Jennette was great with communication before and during the trip. She provided spot on suggestions for local eats and bars and the house itself was great. Everything was clean in good working condition. Street parking was readily available and a cab ride to Bourbon St. or the French Quarter was only about $12. Upon arriving I was a little weary of the neiborhood and leaving my car on the street as it wasn't particularly well lit, but I didn't have any issue. The only other downside was getting a cab. Wait times were 1-2 hours both days, so just be sure to call your cab before you start getting ready to go out. I would definitely recommend this home to a friend traveling to New Orleans. I had a blast on my trip and hope you will too.

    Response from Jennette:

    Matt- Sorry you had trouble with the taxi, I don't think any other guests have had to wait more than 15 minutes for a cab to arrive. Maybe there was a big event or convention in town last weekend that put taxis in short supply? Glad y'all enjoyed your stay, you were a pleasure to host and you're welcome back anytime.

  • The house was perfect for a weekend in New Orleans. The house offered plenty of room for my fellow guests and me to get ready / pre-party before heading to the local night life. The commute from the house to the French Quarter isn't insignificant, but we never had a problem getting a cab to and from (around $25 each way when we were there). Our host, Jennette, was very responsive, flexible with check in/out, and happy to help with anything we asked for (recommendations, info on the house, etc.). Overall, this place is definitely a good pick if you're looking for an authentic New Orleans feel!

  • My friend and I stayed at Jennette's house on the way to and from a wedding in Georgia. We could not have been more happy with our stay. Jennette's house is beautiful, interesting and fun. I loved that she had hula hoops that we were allowed to use! We were about a ten dollar cab ride from everything we wanted to see and do (no drinking and driving and we didn't have to deal with getting lost). Her neighbor Eric was also very nice. I accidentally left a print I bought and Jennette was kind enough to send it to me! Thanks for making our stay awesome!

I was born and raised in the South, so being a good hostess is fundamental to my lifestyle and relationships. New Orleans has so much great stuff to offer, I feel its easy to be a good host here. I'm happy to help you with music and restaurant recommendations and directions. I work for a local company that makes vintage- inspired handmade fashion accessories, and I teach hooping classes at Tulane University and throughout the city. I make and sell hula-hoops, so sometimes the foyer turns into a hula hoop inventory area. I have lived here since 1999 and am here to answer any questions you might have about New Orleans, or to stay out of your way and let you do your thing.
