Sanctuary; Steps to the Streetcar

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Philip St, New Orleans, LA 70113, United States

The Space

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.

Additional Amenties include:
Wireless Internet
Two burner stove top
Mini Fridge
IPod player
Coffee maker

  • What a beautiful place to stay and a fabulous host! I was only able to stay one night, but wish it could have been longer. All the positive reviews are spot on. I'll be back to visit New Orleans in the future and will definitely be back to stay here!

  • We second all the positive feedback for Ariana! It was located in a safe and desirable location. It allowed for us to walk, cab or take the streetcar to reach our destinations. Ariana was easily accessible by phone to answer questions or to give suggestions. We loved our stay and would not hesitate to recommend Ariana's place to friends and family.

  • What a wonderful New Orleans gem! We felt very at home, and loved the homely touches. All the furniture/ linens were beautiful and the courtyard was peaceful.
    We didn't get to meet the host in person, but she left nice snacks for when we arrived, personalized our key, and left a friendly note on our departure.
    The streetcar at the end of the road was a fun way to get into the city, and the surrounding Garden District made for great local walking.
    Thank you Ariana! We'll be back!

  • I had a wonderful time staying at Ariana's Sanctuary. Ariana greeted me in person even though I arrived very late at night. Ariana was always available during my stay, gave me great recommendations on music clubs, places to eat and what to do. The Sanctuary itself was clean, very spacious and stacked with snacks and some drinks as well as a record player. The coffe helped a lot getting up in the morning after a long flight and it was nice to relax in the backyard with some tunes playing in the background. The location is just perfect, located only one block away from the Garden District and public transportation to the French Quarter and Uptown (Audubon Park, Universities). The area felt safe day and night.

  • Wow. Excellent stay. We really enjoyed the courtyard with its privacy, tranquil water features and as a place to meet with our local friends for a while. The central, easy access location is a major plus. We could have easily just left out car and traveled using the streetcar or by foot anywhere in the city had we wanted. The accommodations were great. Loved the lavender soap, coffee & real cream, wine glasses, comfy bed...even played the EW&F vinyl before leaving! All in all, as my wife said, "Very frisky!".

  • We absolutely loved this place. The location is perfect for exploring the Garden District. Ariana was very responsive and helpful. The place feels very secure. The bed was very comfortable. And there were all kinds of nice little amenities. Ironing board/iron, toiletries, hair dryer, snacks, beverages, coffee, even creamer. We can't wait to come back. The little courtyard area was really nice to have. Ten times better than a hotel any day!

  • Ariana is a wonderful host!! She was so accommodating to my friends and I upon our stay at the sanctuary. The private apartment was stocked with beer, snacks, and even a record player with earth wind and fire on hand- what else could one ask for?! :)

    The apartment is lovely- quiet, tranquil, and private, with beautiful flowers and candles everywhere.

    Thank you so much Ariana! Hope to stay with you again soon!! :)

  • We had a wonderful time staying with Ariana. We were there for Mardi Gras and couldn't have found a better location. Ariana was a great hostess and provided us with whatever we needed. There was plenty of room and the bed was comfortable. Ariana made us feel part of the family and we felt at home from the moment we arrived. We had a wonderful time at the pig roast that she invited us to and can't imagine wanting to stay any other place when visiting NOLA.
