The space

VooDoo Fest! Halloween! Saints Games! Sugar Bowl! Mardi Gras!
Great location for everything New Orleans, experience it like a native New Orleanian.

Welcome to our home in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans. Our 150 year old home is one block from the river and only a mile from the center of the French Quarter and half a mile from Frenchman Street the center for New Orleans music.

We love new Orleans and the Bywater and are happy to give suggestions about everything there is to enjoy in our great city.

Bywater is a diverse and exuberant neighborhood with an atmosphere unlike anywhere else in New Orleans. Great restaurants, bars, coffee shops, clubs and Country Club with a pool, in true New Orleans style it's clothing optional, are all within easy walking distance.

Plenty of great restaurants within walking distance; Satsuma Cafe, Elizabeth's,, Maurepas Foods, Bacchanal, Cake Cafe, The Joint BBQ, Sugar Park Pizza , Suis Generis, Booty's Street Food, Feelings Cafe, Mimi's in the Marigny, Pizza Delicious, and the Country Club, With new places in the process of opening.
REAL local music venues a few blocks away; All Ways Lounge and Theater, Kajun's Pub (karaoke), Siberia, and Hi Ho Lounge, Vaughn’s with Kermit Ruffins every Thursday

The New Orleans Healing Center is nearby and contains a variety of services: natural foods grocery, Middle Eastern restaurant, Bookstore, yoga, a gym, and dance classes, with local artists markets on selected weekends.
Laundromat just 5 blocks away with Schiro's Restaurant attached.
Our neighborhood is a vibrant active place while still being away from the noise and crowd of the French Quarter, but close enough to be an easy walk there.

------------------------------RULES TO STAY BY----------------------------
We are an easy going couple who love New Orleans and our Bywater neighborhood. Open minded and Welcoming to all people. However as this is our home and we live under the rental space we have basic rules:

Please respect us, our neighbors, and each other.

The Bywater and New Orleans is a very diverse place
with people of ALL walks of life. We welcome everyone and expect the people that stay here to be respectful of their fellow-person.

New Orleans is a drinking, partying all night city, but our rental space is not. We live downstairs and unfortunately have to work and sleep so just be mindful and don't plan a loud party in our space.

Our place is huge, but it is only for those who have rented it, so no added guests during your stay please.

A valid form of identification is required when you arrive (passport or driver's license) A copy will be made of it for security purposes. These measures are put in place to help protect all of us.

No smoking in apartment.

We reserve the right to ask you to leave if you don't respect the house rules.

Roger and Rico’s home is wonderful. The little touches and the “homey” environment is so refreshing and gentle if you need a recovery vacation. The neighborhood is quiet, there are cafes near, and you will rest well. Let them take care of you.
