Parkview/Bayou St. John Getaway

Apartment - Entire home/apt · North Carrollton Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70119, United States

Completely renovated, one bedroom efficiency with full kitchen in Parkview neighborhood. A block from City Park and Bayou St. John, located on the Canal streetcar line. You're a short ride away from the French Quarter!

The Space

This is the ground floor apartment of our recently (completed in June 2013) restored historic New Orleans home. We live upstairs with our family (two young boys). It features one bedroom with queen size bed, a large bath, an adorable eat in kitchen as well as a washer and dryer. There are two private entrances.

Guest Access

Access to washer and dryer as well as back brick patio and large back yard.

Interaction with Guests

We are proud New Orleanians who both work in the hospitality industry. We're thrilled to share our city and insider tips with visitors!

The Neighborhood

We live in the best neighborhood in New Orleans! Just a block away is City Park (the New Orleans Museum of Art, Morning Call Beignets, City Putt, Carousel Gardens, beautiful live oak trees, etc) and Bayou St. John. Some of the city's best restaurants are just steps away including Toup's Meatery, Ralph's on the Park, Lola's and Cafe Degas. Two major grocery stores are three blocks away. The streetcar rambles by in front of the house admist the live oaks. This is a historic New Orleans neighborhood and embodies much of what our city is all about!

Getting around

The Canal Streetcar runs right in front of the house. For a mere $1.25 you can take a short-trip to the French Quarter and downtown New Orleans.

Other Things to Note

Parking is on street only. But there are no meters or permits required in the area. Finding a spot is never a problem (except during Voo Doo Fest, Jazz Fest and the Saturday before Mardi Gras). We live upstairs with our young kids and they make some noise. We do our best to keep the volume down, but it can carry through the floor. We always like guests to know this upfront in case they're sensitive to noise.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay with Wesley in New Orleans was beyond fantastic! They are incredibly gracious, helpful and exceptionally pleasant hosts - you honestly can't ask for anyone better. We chose Wesley's because we thought it looked lovely from the pictures, but once we got there it exceeded our expectations; and what's better is that it's in a beautiful location with great travel routes nearby!

    We had a lovely visit, and if we're ever in NOLA again; we know where we'll be staying!

  • We had a wonderful stay in this little getaway. Our hosts were easy to communicate with and so very hospitable. The house is right off the streetcar line and a quick walk to City Park. Parking was never a problem to find on the street behind the house. So grateful that they opened up their home to us!

  • Wesley and her family provided a wonderful experience in New Orleans. The apartment was very clean, inviting, and comfortable. The family is very friendly. Wesley communicated very well and was very mindful and helpful. There is some noise from upstairs, but if you don't plan on sleeping in late, it's not an issue at all. Beautiful neighborhood with lots of restaurants, parks, etc all within walking distance. Would definitely go back and stay again!

  • Great space and very welcoming host! Like other reviews said, the kiddos can get a little noisy upstairs but we were not in the room that much so it wasn't too much bother. About three miles from tourist town and a 2 min walk to the car line @ 1.25$ a ride or 3$ a day, great restaurants close by, swanky neighborhood, all in all a great location. Wesley was very helpful and answered questions about Nola whenever we had them as well as printed up a suggestion/welcome packet.

  • My friend and I enjoyed our stay at Wesley's. The communication was great all the way through the process. The apartment was perfect for 2 people very clean and had everything (fresh towels,mini fridge, oven, tv, etc) to make our stay very comfortable. It is very well decorated and comfy. Wesley let us have the key and this makes the check in and out very easy.
    The neighbourhood and location is perfect close to the good restaurants, city park and cafés.

    Some evenings, there was noise from upstairs, however, even in the best hotels you can be woken from every kind of noise. Other than than, I would thoroughly recommend the apartment.

  • We had an amazing time in Wesley's charming apartment! We couldn't have asked for a better location : it was walking distance to several yummy restaurants, the Botanical Garden & Museum of Art and the trolley right outside made it extremely easy to ride to Bourbon Street and Jackson Square. Wesley was super helpful with events happening while we were there and my only wish is that we could have stayed longer!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Parkview/Bayou St. John Getaway. This was our first airbnb experience and it was delightful! The suite was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. Wesley and Levi provided great tips for the area including sites to see and places to eat. They are available if needed. We appreciated their quick responses to our many questions prior to our stay. The location is great - close to City Park and the street car, which made exploring the city easy to do. We would definitely stay here again!

  • Wesley was an awesome host! She had cold beers waiting for us when we arrived and a list of suggestions of places to eat/activities, etc. to do. She was just really helpful and really nice. The apartment was recently redone, and it's in a great area. The apartment was a little noisy, but Wesley had already put earplugs in the apartment for us to use in case we wanted to nap or sleep in. All in all- a great place!

  • Wesley and Levi are the perfect definition of a hospitality couple! I asked a ton of questions and Wesley was quick to answer all of them quickly and in detail. She even went above and beyond to look into a crawfish boil for us. We met Levi one night at dinner at Palace Cafe was a delight and we had a priceless experience there!

    The property is an fantastic neighborhood next to the cable car (note: it doesn't run late so plan accordingly). The New Orleans Museum is located across the street within the beautiful city park. Make sure to stop at Morning Call so much easier and cheaper than Cafe Du Monde. We also enjoyed dining at Cafe Degas which is about a block away. EXCELLENT food and was recommended by Wesley.

    The apartment is clean and new construction. The water is hot and great water pressure in the bathroom. The entrance is private on the side of the house and leads right into the kitchen (*note there is no living space) just kitchen, bedroom (limited cable), and bath. Ladies, there is no hairdryer so make sure to bring your own (which I asked about before I left). It is beautifully decorated and the full service kitchen a nice amenity even though we didn't use it. Wesley had it stocked it with water and beer and left some fruit for us. Its a beautiful space to unpack your bags and enjoy your time in New Orleans. I would make one suggestion and that is to hang drapes in the bedroom as light does come through on the sides of the black out shade. Wesley did mention the pitter patter of feet when I inquired so we were prepared for it. They are an active family, but also very accommodating to their guests so if there is a concern, just let them know. We would stay there again, recommend it, and we really felt like home and we just loved the location!

  • Wesley was a perfect host! We loved staying in her home! Bright, very clean, cheerful and comfortable ! Close to a beautiful park called Mid-City and the New Orleans Museum of Art. Great walking trails and a fun and very friendly neighborhood!

My husband and I happily live in the Parkview/Bayou St. John area of New Orleans with our two young sons. We enjoy everything New Orleans has to offer from food to music to Mardi Gras (we even march with our kids in a Mardi Gras krewe). We love being outdoors and walking to the bayou/park. Our last three trips were to Cape Cod, NYC and Key West. We look forward to welcoming people to our little piece of New Orleans in what we consider one of the city's best neighborhoods! My husband is a native New Orleanian and I'm a transplant, but together, we share a unique perspective on where to go and what to see in NOLA. Hope to see you soon!
