Our historic corner property comfortably accommodates 6-12 people. It includes 4 private bedrooms w/4 full size beds, bunk beds, and sofa bed. We offer bikes to tour this magnificent city in a neighborhood that represents the melting pot of NOLA!!!
In the early 1900s, this corner building was used as a neighborhood corner store with the living quarters located on the second floor. The second floor has been renovated with 4 private bedrooms each with a full size bed. The apartment has one full bathroom. In addition, there is a set of bunk beds in the common area, as well as a new futon sofa bed. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, microwave and stove/oven to accommodate our guests. There is also a yard with a picnic table and green space that you are welcomed to utilize. Eat some crawfish, drink some beer, or simply get some sun!
Guests have access to the entire top apartment and the fenced yard. Our bicycles are available upon request during the reservation period so please let us know ahead of time if you are intending to use them.
Interaction with Guests
Together with my fiance, I live directly behind this house, but don't worry we will stay completely out of your hair! ;) However, if you have any questions or concerns we are more than happy to assist in anyway that we can!
If you are one of those folks who wants to experience authentic New Orleans and its rich diversity, then this just may be the location for you. This house is located in the heart of NOLA and the neighborhood's diversity shows it! If you're lucky you could hear one of the neighborhood kids playing the trumpet or trombone. We also provide free bikes so that you can bike through the entire city! You can bike to practically any location worth visiting including City Park (events include Voodoo Fest and Hogs for the Cause), the Fairgrounds (Jazz Fest and horse racing), Bayou St. John (Bayou Boogaloo), and OF COURSE the French Quarter and downtown.
We provide free bikes for you to get around! This property is very much centrally located and rather easy to get anywhere. It is also conveniently located between the streetcar line that runs on Canal Street and bus line 39 that runs on Tulane Avenue that both take you directly downtown. A cab station is down the road, therefore its fairly easy to order one. If you plan to use the streetcar or bus, you may want to purchase a Jazzy Pass ((website hidden)).
Other Things to Note
My fiance and I wanted to invest in a property to call home. We wanted a fixer-upper in an area that was up and coming and that had potential. Considering that we are drawn to the urban and historic core of New Orleans we wanted to be centrally located within the city. The area and house itself needed to have that New Orleans charm. Fast forward 5 years later and we are the proud owners of 4 additional properties in the neighborhood with this listing being one of them. Needless to say I love this neighborhood and its diversity which truly represents the melting pot that is NOLA.
Number one rule: Enjoy your stay! If you don't, I've failed. Aside from that please make sure that if you smoke you do so outdoors either on the balcony or yard area and please make sure to appropriately dispose of cigarette butts. You are more than welcomed to use the outdoors area but it is a residential area so please be mindful of your noise level especially in the evenings. Other than that have a blast!
Great, great, great. We rolled in late on a Friday and found things exactly as stated, plenty of beds, bedding, towels. Contacted our hosts regarding extra bikes, they showed up later that day, it was amazing. This was my 1st ABnB experience and I will use it again and again. Our hosts friendly and responsive, the house was great roomy and charming, the location was perfect and for us the neighborhood was just like home. I can't say enough good things. Thanks for helping to make my 50th birthday trip a complete success.
On est venu pour le carnaval et on a eu la chance de tomber sur cette maison. Elle est pleine de charme, conviviale, ensoleillée. On peut être à 5mn en voiture de bourbon street et grâce aux vélos, découvrir le magnifique quartier près du parc, le long du canal. Nous étions 11 et c'était très pratique. Alexander qui nous a accueilli est hyper cool.
This house for 6 of us (3 couples) worked out perfectly for Mardi Gras! It's a little off the beaten path (cabbies didn't seem to understand what mid-city is), but it was very easy to walk to the French Quarter or the trolley. It had the basic things we needed- enough beds and towels. But definitely no frills- nothing fancy about it. We think it would have been absolutely perfect if there had been one more bathroom that wasn't in the basement- but we didn't spend much time there so it was fine. We had no problems checking in or out- we would definitely stay here again if we're back in town.
Great house! We were a group of colleagues from various parts of the world coming together for a conference in town. The house has tons of character and the bikes were great. We had a couple of flat tires throughout the week, but Alexander was super responsive to any issues and fixed them right away. The canal street cable car and the Tulane bus are super close to get around. We really enjoyed our stay!
This place was perfect for our group of 10. The house was clean and spacious with lots of room to hang out together in the common areas but enough beds/rooms to enjoy some rest and quiet time. We had rented a large SUV to get around the city and always had a parking spot right by the front door. The fleet of cruisers was a great option to have as a few of us were able to squeeze in a quick bike ride on the second morning of our stay. In fact, Alex came out and introduced himself before our ride and was just as friendly and welcoming as he had been during our communications leading up to our trip--And even when our group was running late for checkout, Alex was very accommodating and maintained a friendly, professional tone. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to travel to NOLA with a large group, but perhaps most importantly to anyone who would like to experience Southern hospitality (courtesy of Alex) first hand.
We had a great stay while we were in NOLA. The house was as depicted and it was great that we could walk to the street car only a few blocks away. The neighborhood seems to be in the process of being gentrified but it was a nice central location to access all parts of the city. The house itself was clean and there was plenty of room for our relatively big group. The downstairs bathroom is a little funky and stayed pretty cold (we were there in Jan), but all the guys in our group had no issues with it. Our communication with Alex was great leading up to our stay and he really helped us out with a late check-out after we had been busy all morning. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely recommend this place for big groups.
If you've never been to New Orleans, you absolutely must go. And if you go, you must absolutely stay here! The house is in a great location. It's a short walk to the Canal Street street car, which gets you to the French Quarter going one way, and City Park the other, very easily. It's near great local spots within walking distance and for a runner like me, had some great opportunities for jogs around the city. It's also less than a mile from a Whole Foods and just upwards of a mile from other grocery stores. The house is completely adequate, clean and well maintained and Alex was 100% available and responsive, while remaining laid back, while we were there. While we did not use the bikes available, they looked sturdy and easy to ride. All in all, a very positive experience.

I was born and raised in New Orleans, lived in Memphis for four years while I attended Rhodes College and played NCAA soccer there. Upon graduation I moved to Washington DC and in 2009 moved back to New Orleans! I haven't looked back since!
