Description

The Space

This charming home is furnished with a mix of antiques and mid -century finds. Our two bedrooms each have antique Queen-size beds with pillow top mattresses.

The den has a day bed which can be a comfortable place for a 5th person in your party. You have access to the laundry, conveniently located off the den. Your porch is a sun-filled spot where you can begin your day with coffee, or end it with a glass of wine, enjoying breezes blowing gently from the river. From the porch, you will catch a glimpse of ships on the river, and hear the sounds of tugs signalling to the lock tender that they have completed their passage in the Industrial Canal.

You will enjoy walking or running on the levee of the Mississippi River. This is the only neighborhood in New Orleans where you have direct access to the river. You don't have to cross railroad tracks, a highway or a bridge! Our Levee is a very special place to run, walk, visit with neighbors, or just sit and contemplate Mark Twain's world

Great restaurants are everywhere in New Orleans. Stop by Cafe Dauphine, just around the corner, and enjoy highly-acclaimed local cuisine prepared by a family who have lived in the Holy Cross Neighborhood for generations. Many more restaurants are 5 to 10 minutes away. In Bywater, just over the St. Claude Bridge, and Marigny, a few streets closer to the French Quarter, you will find Elizabeth's, Horn's, Jack Dempsey's and dozens of totally unique dining options. It also is convenient to go East into St. Bernard Parish (" Da Parish") where there are many nice family-oriented dining places in Chalmette. The French Quarter is 10 minutes to the West on St. Claude Avenue, and Chalmette is 10 minutes away to the East. You won't be hungry for long!

There is a bus stop on St. Claude Ave, which is perfectly safe during the day. It is best to take a cab at night.

This house is more than 100 years old but it has all the modern conveniences. Guests enjoy breezes off The River and lovely views. The Historic Holy Cross Neighborhood is quiet at night. No loud street noises will keep you awake. People refer to the Historic Holy Cross Neighborhood as "..a little county village tucked away in a corner of New Orleans where time stood still." You will cherish your stay here.

Don't miss the opportunity to experience a sunset overlooking The Mississippi River.

We love being only minutes away from all the music, dining, and excitement that makes New Orleans one of the world's most fantastic cities. How remarkable that, at the same time, we are in a quaint part of New Orleans that feels like a rural village where chickens still roam between the houses.

We love the openness of the views on the levee, and the tranquility of watching tugs and barges navigating The Mississippi River.

Buses run on St. Claude, 5 blocks away, into the French Quarter and CBD. We advise renting a car, which will be about the same price as round trip x airport cab fare.. Use the price--line or orbitz sites for a good deal.


The Guest Wing has a private entrance. Each bedroom opens off a wide gallery. (not shotgun style, like many New Orleans homes) Guests have a porch, access to the back yard, use of the washer and dyer, iron and ironing board. The den can accomdate a 5th member of the party in the day bed if reserved in advance. There is a folding table and chairs, micowave, mini-fridge, and coffee maker.

We will respect your privacy. If our schedules are compatible we might share a cocktail, a walk in the neighborhood, or sunset beside The River. We enjoy visiting with our guests, and sometimes share a cocktail or a walk on the levee. Your accommodations are totally private, however, and we let our guests determine how much they care to interact.

We love our historic neighborhood and our eclectic mix of long-time residents and upbeat new arrivals who embrace the New Orleans style.

The Holy Cross Neighborhood is engaged in a legal battle to prevent a high rise apartment complex from being built on the campus of the former Holy Cross school. You will hear from passionate neighbors how we feel about protecting our historic community.


There are buses on St. Claude Ave to take you to the French Quarter or Central Business District. We suggest driving or taking cabs at night. You will want to rent a car because it is cheaper for a rental than round trip airport taxi fares.

This is one of the coolest neighborhoods in New Orleans!

We are happy to help guests connect with the many volunteer agencies in New Orelans.
