Nestled in the Riverbend section of Uptown New Orleans, this little gem of a home sits half a block from Historic Oak street. Whether at full-tilt during the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival, just coming to life on weekend mornings with crowds seated outside the Oak Street Cafe for fresh homemade doughnuts and live Jazz, or past sunset when crowds at the ever-popular Jacque Imo's and Maple Leaf Bar spill out on to the sidewalk, there's always something going on. This 1 BR/1 Bath, originally built in the 20's has been fully restored to it's original grandeur with a mix of the historic and the modern. With a minimalist touch and attention to detail, you'll enjoy an open floor plan living room and a beautifully appointed kitchen. The den offers Flat screen TV, Wi-Fi internet, and a queen sized sofa bed. The bedroom features a queen sized bed, full-closet and a screened-in porch with adirondack chairs for star gazing. Soak in the jacuzzi bathtub after a long day of sight seeing.

Our stay at the Bon Temps was so enjoyable. The pictures are right on the money. We arrived late and used the keypad on the front door to enter (such an easy process!). The back porch off the bedroom was one of our favorite hangouts in the mornings to enjoy our coffee before the day.
In terms of location, this place can't be beat. We loved the Uptown neighborhood and all the local joints. Just a few shot blocks from the streetcar as well.
Steven was extremely responsive, and even kind enough to allow us to extend checkout to wait for our plane. I'd highly recommend this spot for anyone visiting New Orleans.
Nice apartment! Everything is very clean and comfortable. We had wonderful spring break in New Orleans. The only concern we had is that the pull out sofa is too soft to sleep two.
The Oak Street Charmer is a lovely cottage a stone's throw from Oak Street. Set in a picturesque neighborhood and surrounded by fantastic architectural variety, this home was a very comfortable place for us to stay on our 10 day visit to New Orleans. Well appointed and clean, the house stole our hearts and endeared us to this entirely underrated part of the city.
As is the case with any older home, the Charmer has plenty of little quirks, but none of these impeded our enjoyment of the home and the area. Having off-street parking was a huge bonus.
The home is within walking distance of a great coffee shop, several restaurants (including the highly rated Jacques Imo's and Squeal BBQ), and the St. Charles streetcar line.
Our stay was good. Globally, the house is cute, very well located and Steven tips on restaurants and so on are very good. We tried few of them and were very happy!
Though, the cleaning could have been better (bathtub not done) and i would have loved to find the pull out sofa (which is in a very bad condition but ok for kids) prepared knowing that we reserved the house for 4 people. The sheets in the pull out sofa were not clean either, so had to wash and dry it.
The apartment was very charming, comfortable, clean and in an amazing location! Extremely close to great cafes and restaurants, which also makes it easy to find a cab. Also very close to the street car.
More importantly, the apartment had all the practical things one could need during a short stay (probably even for a long one).
Steven was very reachable, and helpful when we asked him for recommendations etc.
Definitely would go back and stay again.
We spent a month in New Orleans at Steve and Lenora's home and had a wonderful time at the Oak St. Charmer! The location is excellent, the home is very clean and the fully fenced yard was perfect for our dog to run around in. My husband traveled a few times for work while we were there and so I was at the house by myself occasionally and I felt completely safe in the neighborhood. Great restaurants right around the corner and a Bikram Yoga studio 100 feet from the house and you can pick up the street car just down the road. Audubon Park is just over a mile away and has a great running trail, the neighborhood is also a quick walk to Maple Street or drive to Magazine street. Everything you need is close by and convenient! We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to New Orleans! Thank you Steve and Lenora for the adorable place to stay, we really enjoyed our visit!

About the Host, Steven
I have owned and managed rental property in New Orleans for 25 years. My wife, Lenora and I only recently begun turning a few into Vacation Rentals, but so far so good! We love the diversity of guests that come to stay, from world travelers to locals looking for a weekend away. When we're not renovating apartments, we love to sail Lake Pontchartrain with our two puppies,.
