This well decorated, comfortable apartment 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. We also have two bikes available to borrow upon request! Just bring your helmets!
Access to washer and dryer as well as brick patio off the kitchen 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 apartment has two private entrances, so there is a possibility we won't see each other, but we leave that up to guests, depending on the interaction level they'd like.
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!
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. We also have two bikes guests can use upon request.
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 tend to wake up on the early side. 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.
No smoking inside. Patio outside is ok for smoking.
Wesley and Levi could not have been more helpful or welcoming. The apartment is perfect - great, well-equipped kitchen with a door onto a lovely yard, spacious bathroom, and a cosy bedroom. Wesley was completely open in advance about the possible noise from upstairs, but with a combination of thoughtfully-provided earplugs and Mardi Gras exhaustion we never found it an issue. The location is lovely and walking distance to some great eating and drinking spots, as well as an easy streetcar ride from the French Quarter. The highlight of our trip was Wesley and Levi very kindly inviting us to join them and their lovely friends to watch the Endymion parade - an amazing experience and so much fun for two Mardi Gras novices! We had a brilliant week and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this fantastic spot and warm hosts. Thank you Wesley and Levi!
Very welcoming and responsive hosts! Comfortable downstairs apartment in a great location - easy walking to the park/ art museum, and right on the streetcar line. When we had issues, they were taken care of very rapidly.
We had an incredible weekend! It was me and my husband's first time in New Orleans, and this was the perfect place to stay! It was a great neighborhood, with close access to the streetcar and a short drive to the French Quarter. The apartment was adorable, and very clean! Wesley and her husband were very welcoming and always quick to answer any questions we had. We most definitely recommend staying here!
We had such a fabulous stay with Wesley & loved exploring NOLA using her space as our base. Weseley was very easy to communicate with, both before we arrived and once we settled in. She provides a handy neighborhood (& broader NOLA) guide with great local tips of where to eat and drink etc (the wine shop around the corner is fantastic!) and she is at hand to provide help when needed.
While it's out of the city centre, the apartment is an easy commute downtown (on either the streetcars or bus) & there are some great spots for dining nearby (particularly the cute French place on jackson ave). We had quite a few evenings in and really enjoyed the relaxed homey feel of the place. It's worth noting Wesley is totally upfront about the noise from her boys running about upstairs, but we weren't bothered by it at all.
We loved staying here and would totally recommend it to all! Thanks Wesley! !
Wesley was a fantastic host, she was very friendly and inviting. Her advice was informative and she really helped us with some great recommendations around New Orleans. The apartment was great! It was very clean and modern and had everything we needed. The neighborhood was fantastic. I would recommend this neighborhood to someone who is interested in spending time away from the tourist areas and who wants to get a real feel for the town by eating and drinking where the locals do. We enjoyed this as we got the opportunity to meet many friendly locals along the way. The French quarter was however only a street car trip away so it was still easy to see the famous bourbon street.
My sister and I had a lovely stay here for our girls' weekend in New Orleans. Ryan and I stayed here in October and as before, the apartment was clean, comfortable and convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. As the Canal streetcar was a block away, we used it quite a bit to get to the French Quarter and walked to City Park a couple of times for events and beignets. Wesley was very accommodating and gave us great suggestions on things to do and places to eat. I will be staying here again next chance I get!
Had a great.. Great experience! We planned our trip last minute and they were so great on accommodating and welcoming us! The pics have no justice on how quaint and personal this place really is! Great Place!!!
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!
