Description

The Space

Last minute reservation are welcome though I'm not taking reservations beyond February!

This listing is for the front room of a three bedroom home, and has a full-sized bed as well as a full-sized futon (pictures not yet updated).

This room is more affordable than my other listings because it is the first one in the house and directly on Frenchmen Street so it can get a little noisy (though I have ear plugs available). The room does not have a door but rather opens into the kitchen, though a curtain is hung as a divider. Other people will not be sleeping in or hanging out in your room, but they will likely need to walk through it. The house does, however, have 3 entrances/exits, so there is some privacy. The room comes with fresh sheets, a clean blanket, 4 pillows, 2 clean towels, clothing rack, dresser, alarm clock, umbrella, ceiling fan and space heater.

The house is a beautiful, sunny, recently renovated 1500 square foot shot-gun built in 1919 with gorgeous 12' ceilings. The central A/C provides reliable relief from the summer heat and the central heat will keep you toasty.


The shared bathroom is clean, cozy, fully stocked and has an awesomely hot shower. I also have a queen sized air mattress if you need extra bed space. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas range/oven, dishwasher and washer and dryer. Though I don't provide breakfast, your room will come with a welcoming snack or bottle of wine and you are free to use the kitchen.


There is a storage closet in the back of the house for bikes, instruments, or any other large objects you want to keep safe but do not comfortably fit in your room or vehicle.


I live on-site in the back apartment, but have my own entrance and bathroom. The kitchen is shared. I am very respectful of guest's privacy, though I am close by and available for questions, concerns and other amenities. I am a public history graduate student who creates all kinds of city tours, so if you let me know what you are interested in, I am more than happy to help you make an itinerary.

Home to some of the world's most famous jazz clubs, Frenchmen Street is always bustling with action. This property is one block away from Jelly Roll Morton's childhood home, 3/4 mile from the French Quarter, and 1/2 mile or less from the Marigny and Bywater neighborhoods, St. Claude Arts District and famous music venues on Frenchmen Street. It is one block the bus line to the French Quarter/Canal Street, the Central Business District, UNO and other parts of town.

Your future room is located in the Seventh Ward/New Marigny neighborhood which is slightly off the beaten path and close to a plethora of quirky venues You can catch a metal show and eat some Eastern European food at Siberia, listen to bluegrass and funk at Hi Ho Lounge,watch burlesque and erotica readings at Allways Lounge, shake your booty at bounce night at St. Roch Tavern, drink an AMAZING bloody mary at Marie's, (email hidden)-monthly lesbian dance parties at Big Daddy's or chow down on some homemade sausages while singing your heart out at daily karaoke at Kajun's Pub. If you need some relaxation, there are a few public pools nearby, and one is even clothing-optional and heated in the winter! There are three grocery stores (and two drug stores) within walking distance. Every week you can catch a free crawfish/shrimp boil at the R bar just down the road, as well as free dance lessons at the world famous jazz bar The Spotted Cat! I have a frequently updated calendar on my bedroom door which lists other weekly and special events in the city.

The neighborhood isn't super swanky, but you can smell barbecue on the weekends, chat with the neighbors, wake up to a second line parade on Sunday mornings and live like a local!


Cab rides are only a phone call away, and is generally how my guests travel to and from the airport. If you are arriving by Megabus, the stop lets you off on the 55 bus line, which has a stop only a block away from my home. If you are driving into the city, there is plenty of on street parking.

I encourage my guests to walk around, as I think the slower pace helps folks appreciate the energy of the city. However, late night cab rides can be a good idea if you perhaps enjoyed the nightlife a little too much :)
There are also several places nearby where guests can rent bikes, which is a really nice way to see the city.

I also have bi-monthly deliveries of gourmet single-source coffees which I encourage all my guests to taste!

Smoking is permitted outside.

The house has an optional, but adorably cuddly, kitten name Stringer Bell. He usually stays outside but loves to hang out if you like to give belly rubs.

The home has wireless internet, but no television. I do, however, have plenty of books on New Orleans (and other subjects) which I am happy to loan out, and I will gladly share my NetFlix and Hulu Plus if you need to get your television fix. Don't worry, your trip to New Orleans will not be boring!

House Rules

No racism, sexism or homophobia allowed!

Smoking is permitted outside.
Let me know if you want to bring an animal or have any pet allergies.
Texting is the easiest way to get in touch with me.
Lock the doors when you leave the house.
In the summer, don't leave the doors or windows open. New Orleans is a swamp, so swarms of flies, palmetto bugs, stinging caterpillars and termites are always a possibility.
Keep the air conditioning between 75 and 78, though you're welcome to turn it off when you leave.


Eat a beignet, dance with a brass band and have fun!

Can't wait to meet you!
