About this listing
Great home base to explore the city! In the heart of the Bywater/St.Claude neighborhood, we're a short walk to most Bywater bars & restaurants, and a 5 minute drive or 10 minute bike ride down to the French Quarter.
The apartment is an artsy one bedroom shotgun with newly refinished hardwood floors, 12 ft ceilings, old school pocket doors, and lots of sunlight! There's a big backyard and porch to hang out on, and a well stocked kitchen with an antique gas stove, and beautiful curvy cabinets, as well as coffee for your stay. There's free WIFI, a stereo, and a washer and dryer on site.
The house has a big double bed, a queen sized pull-out sleeper couch, and daybed. Both the bed and pull-out couch have super comfortable memory foam mattresses. The apartment easily sleeps 5.
There are 3 guest bikes to borrow (an eclectic but working mix of cruisers and road bikes). It's the very best way to get around the city!
Interaction with Guests
If I'm not around to greet you when you get in, my brother, Morgan, lives in the tiny house in the backyard and is on hand for any questions you have about the house, bikes, or what to see and do in New Orleans. My brother, Walker, lives right across the porch. Check out his restaurant, Kebab, right down St. Claude for the best sandwiches in town!
We're a block in on the lake side (north side) of St. Claude Ave. The neighborhood is super diverse, a mix of working class families and artists. The house is on a quiet street but a short walk to Vaughn's, BJ's or Bacchanal for live music almost every night of the week. Delicious restaurants like The Joint, Satsuma or Elizabeth's are also all within walking distance. We're right around the corner from the St. Claude Arts District, Shake Sugary bakery, and the Alvar Library, and only six blocks to Crescent Park- a brand new park the runs along the Mississippi River through the length of the Bywater.
Transportation is easy- the house is a block away from the St. Claude bus line, which connects to the streetcar lines, and airport shuttles downtown. There's also street parking on the river side of the house. A cab ride from the French Quarter is around $10 with tip.
Other Things to Note
New Orleans is a social city. In my neighborhood you say, "How you doing," or "Good afternoon/Good night" to almost everyone you pass on the street. Adopt the practice, say hello to people and see the city like a local.
No smoking in the house, but you are welcome to smoke on the front porch or in the backyard.
We live in close proximity to our neighbors, including two other apartments in the house, so please be considerate of noise.
Take the garbage out when you leave.
