About this listing
Come stay at our lovely garden sanctuary located steps from the St. Charles Avenue street car and in one of the country's most beautiful neighborhoods. The private 600 sq ft. apartment is part of of our 140 year old shotgun home.
The sanctuary has two private entrances from a shared, lush, bricked courtyard. The space features a large bedroom, living room/ kitchenette, and bathroom. The beautiful rooms look on to a lovely courtyard garden that provides the heart of the sanctuary in the heart of the city. Guests go to sleep to the sound of fountains and wake up to the sound of birds. But yet you're in the middle of it all
Guests with a small child will enjoy the use of a Pack n Play.
The location of the space is convenient to all parts of New Orleans, especially fopr those visitors that will not have a car but want to see and experience all that New Orleans has to offer.
We are a block and half from the St. Charles Street Car and all of the Uptown Mardi Gras parades (including ZULU!!). The great restaurants of Magazine St are just a few beautiful blocks away. Garden District attractions including St. Louis Cemetary and Commander's Palace are at your fingertips. The historic New Orleans Street Car will take you on a breath-taking ride down oak-lined St. Charles Ave. to the French Quarter or to the University area. If you choose to drive or walk, the French Quarter is only 1.8 miles away.
You may stroll through the beautiful Garden District, experience some of the world's most amazing architecture on your way to the shops of Magazine St.. Truly a walkable neighborhood with unbeatable beauty.
Guests are encouraged to enjoy the garden courtyard as their own while stay with us. After spending the days sight-seeing, many people enjoy a quiet glass of wine in the courtyard or inviting friends over for low-key dining. A grill is available for use.
The host lives in the front unit of the property and is always available to provide as much guidance... or as much privacy... as the guest desires. Think of her as your 24 hour concierge!
The property in its entirety has three units. An owners unit, the sanctuary apartment, and a guest cottage.
A cat does live on the property. He's a social kitty but does not come in to the space unless invited by guests.
Five night minimum for Mardi Gras
Additional Amenties include:
Two burner stove top
Other Things to Note
When you book, please provide me with your arrival details. Keys will be left in a lock box on the front door for you along with instructions for entry. I will give you the code to the lock box once the reservation is made. Although I prefer to meet and greet guests, it is not always convenient as I work throughout the week and weekend and guests' travel plans often change.
Park directly in front of house. Neighbor very particular about her parking place :)
Smoking outside only. Please dispose of your butts daily
This was absolutely perfect! A beautiful little ground floor apartment and tranquil outdoor courtyard, with everything we needed. We arrived at night and found the courtyard lit with candles. The bed was very comfortable and the little kitchenette well equipped, Ariana had even left us a welcome basket with fruit and treats, and a couple of beers in the fridge. The area is very nice, and only a short ride to the French Quarter, or walkable depending on the heat! It was a wonderful base in this amazing city and we would definitely stay here again, I hope we will return to Ariana's place and to New Orleans!
I can not say enough nice things about my stay. It was so lovely. The place is beautiful and the courtyard is darling it is like a set of a movie. It was the perfect place to come home to after a long day seeing the sites. Ariana left treats and a sweet note. The bed was so comfortable you didn't want to leave it! I will be back for sure!
Ariana made the entire experience a breeze. The place was super clean, gorgeously decorated and even had a washer and dryer. I would absolutely recommend her place.
Peter and I had never been to New Orleans so we had no idea what our vacation was gonna be! We were pleasantly surprised when we walked through the gate of the Sanctuary to find a trickling fountain and lush greenery. Inside was just as wonderful with a clean and cozy bed and wonderful treats waiting for us. We would definitely return to the Sanctuary.
Loved this space! It's everything you need for a great time in New Orleans!
Ariana was an excellent host. She went far above and beyond to accommodate us in many ways and was easy and quick in communication when we needed her. The apartment is in a lovely and convenient area of the Garden District, very walkable. Would absolutely stay there again-- thank you for a great stay in NOLA!
Ariana was out of town so we were greeted by her Dad. We had no problem checking in and the place was as advertised. The best part of this stay is the location. It is ideally located in the Garden District which is the most beautiful part of the city. The accommodations were private, comfortable and very quiet. We were within walking distance of St. Charles Ave. which is home to several eating establishments, the Garden District and the Convention and Visitors office. We would definitely recommend this place as a great place to stay in a fun, unique and interesting city. There is easy access to the other parts of the city via your own car, city bus, tour bus or taxi. Check out a small grocery/diner at the far end St. Charles Ave. called Willie Mae's for the best fried chicken.

About the Host, Ariana
Ariana loves New Orleans and making sure that folks have a great time while they are here.She gets no greater satisfaction than when her guests fall in love with the city. She's a world traveled Southerner with the a knack for hospitality and an appreciation of privacy.
