Very nice spacious bedrooms airy and open condominium beautifully landscaped gated community with protected parking. I treat everyone who stays with me as a special person because you are. I want you to feel welcome in my home and have a nice time while you are in New Orleans .I will be glad to assist with your planned agenda in order to make your stay a remarkable one. Meeting new people and
hosting is my favorite pastime. I am on a cell phone 24/7 so
a guest would be able to reach me in case they need assistance or have an emergency. I do live here but I greatly respect other people's privacy and personal space.
I spoil my guests and enjoy doing so. Get used to being pampered. .
One morning I was awakened by a vibrantly red cardinal pecking at my window. There is a bird sanctuary very close by. Also enjoy a continental breakfast with fresh coffee, rolls, fruit and orange juice each morning. Harrah's casino, Aquarium of the Americas,, plantation tours, swamp tours, voodoo tours, and the fabulous French Quarter are 6-8 minutes away by (website hidden) downtown New Orleans. Great for Mardi Gras and any other festive occasions. Boomtown casino and a swamp tour are also near my condominium. My condo has a swimming pool, fireplace, friendly atmosphere, and gracious host. Can pick you up at airport and bring you back There is also WIFI and cable tv. Children and pets are welcome. Beautiful colored lights brighten your pathway to the door.
There are two bedrooms to choose from-The "Angel Room" master bedroom with the angel tapestry overlooking the queen-sized bed is decorated in the old New Orleans tradition and has an antique 40's vanity and a friendly fireplace adjacent to the bed. The mattress is a posturepedic and is "heavenly" to sleep on. There is also an Oreck air purifier to provide crisp clean air. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a memory foam mattress. It is decorated in white with a beautiful rose crochet bedspread. There is a large hollywood bathroom done in an old movie style theme with vintage pictures and posters of movie stars. The hollywood bathroom has two entryways.

I belong to a wonderful fitness center nearby that has a heated pool, sauna, whirlpool and gym that I may invite each guest for only $10.00 a visit. You can relax and enjoy this all day if you choose to enjoy the atmosphere. Also I belong to another fitness center which allows me to take one guest at a time to enjoy the hydromassage bed and massage chair for free.
My sister especially enjoyed the theatres.
" Streetcar Named Desire' was a very special and unique play actually made in New Orleans and written by
Tennessee Williams. This was a wonderful play she will always remember. Many movies are produced in New Orleans yearly and I have ran across movie shoots frequently during the warmer times of the year. My mother and I actually had the opportunity to be extras in a commercial a few years ago. This was quite a fun experience and we both enjoyed it immensely.
The horse-drawn carriages in the Quarter with the drivers giving a colorful and exciting history of the city are always a great way to begin this fabulous vacation. Everyone
coming to New Orleans should have a wonderful and unique experience. If you do need rides I may possibly be able to help you if available.
Of course guest can cook in the kitchen if they wish and have use of the refrigerator.
I will assist as much as possible if guests needs directions or help with anything.
beautifully landscaped and well-kept.
of course there is public transportation (taxis, buses, etc.) I am usually available to give rides to the French
Quarter, etc also)
Children are welcome at no charge.
Pets are fine if they are well behaved and house
We had an awesome time at Linda's place and in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Linda was a friend, mother figure, tour guide, chauffeur and more rolled into one. She could not do enough for us. Linda is proud and knowledgeable about her city and can even get free access to attractions ie the Aquarium and museums. We got on so well with Linda and Tina (who was also staying at Linda's) we made great friends and many great memories.
We spent 2 weeks at Linda's home and we had a great time. Her house is in Algiers, and since we didnt have a car, she offered to ride us to downtown and the French Quarter everyday! The house is in a condo, and has a unique decoration style. The bedroom and bathroom were comfortable and clean enough. Linda helped us a lot, and prepared wonderful breakfasts! She really makes big efforts trying to please her guests, and we really appreciate it. In short, being with Linda was a big part of the great time we had in the wonderful New Orleans.
I can't recommend Linda enough. This was my best stay at an AirBnb yet, and probably my best hotel experience ever. Linda is one of the nicest people I've ever met and really went the extra mile to make sure my girlfriend and I had as pleasant a stay as possible. Her house is gorgeous, and you'll feel completely welcome and at home there. We originally booked with her because it was cheap and there was nothing left in the French Quarter, but if I had another chance, I'd book it even if there was availability in the French Quarter. Really, if you want an incredible home stay and Southern hospitality in New Orleans, this is the place for you.
Me, my brother and sister had a wonderful stay @ Linda's beautiful little house, she made us feel right at home- in fact we couldn't recommend it enough for anyone wanting to experience the southern hospitality and friendly welcoming!
To summarise our stay:
* comfortable beds in a warm and cosy home.
*Great breakfasts every mornin
*clean rooms,clean sheets and towels provided
*safe and secure environment
*only 10min drive to downtown NO
Most importantly though- Linda made sure to give us any tips or advice on where to go and what to see and had plenty of stories to tell us all- we are very happy we got to meet this lovely lady!
Wish you a happy stay!

If you are looking for a social experience in addition to your accommodations, and a super cozy well appointed place then look no farther. Linda was an absolute delight.
My stay with Linda was my first AirBnB experience. Linda's home is lovely. I never heard any loud noise or disruptions in the neighborhood. The bed was very comfortable after long days of touring. The bathroom sharing arrangement was fine. The breakfasts Linda provided far exceeded my expectations and her willingness to provide transportation was very kind. I would happily stay with Linda again.
