About this listing
A clean, simple, and modern space, designed by Wisznia architects. The building is called the Maritime building, New Orleans original skyscraper. It's in the perfect location to visit the French Quarter, the convention center, or the superdome.
$180 is the average price throughout the year. This price could vary anywhere from $95 to $350 depending on if it's a holiday, special event, or overall a certain time of year you're inquiring about. Hotels operate in the same fashion, but I always try to stay below hotels such as Monteleone, and other top rated fancier hotels.
Stay in luxury at the "first skyscraper to be built in New Orleans." The building was built in 1889.
It sits one block from Bourbon and Canal St. Canal St. is what separates the Central Business District from the French Quarter. You would truly be at the center of it all.
-king sized bed
-large L shaped couch
-flat screen television
On the roof there is a heated pool, electric grill, fitness room, and sauna.
Feel free to cook and utilize the kitchen. Sorry but I don't have a stock of food, spices, herbs, etc. Not yet anyway. The only thing I really have is salt and pepper, and the shakers to go with it.
All the doormen are extremely friendly and helpful. Any questions you have about restaurants, shopping, etc. they will gladly answer.
You will need to bring your own soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc. unless a special request is made. I do provide hand soap, laundry soap, dish soap, counter top spray, towels, and dryer sheets. I now have a collection of travel size everything that has been left by past guests.
The kitchen is fully furnished aside from the spice/herb issue as far as appliances and cookware is concerned, dishes, cups etc.
This apt. is perfect for a couple, small family, or solo on business. Air mattress is available upon request.
There are a couple of bikes in the lobby that belong to the building that you may use.
Checkout is noon. Check-in is 4pm. These are the guidelines. If a guest is leaving the same day one is arriving this gives me time to clean in between guests. Checkout and check-in is otherwise flexible.
Clean up any large messes, no shoes on the carpet, and if you break it, you buy it.
Please clean up any large messes. If you break anything or stain anything I would appreciate you replacing the item or paying for the professional cleaning. Please no shoes on the carpet, and as little as possible inside the house. Also, this is not a party house! Of course you may drink, and get as drunk as you like, but shouting, screaming, running through the hallways, playing music very loudly, inviting a large group over...this cannot happen. I think you get the idea. This is not a hotel. This is my house.
The apartment was exactly as pictured: spacious, clean, and modern. The location was perfect, we walked everywhere, and the pools was nice to come home to after a day in the New Orleans summer. I highly recommend both New Orleans and Darin's place!
Host was easy to deal with and welcoming. Condo was as described and pictured, and a great spot to stay in New Orleans. Would stay here again.
Darin's apartment is a block from the French Quarter, so it is perfect for sightseeing on foot, but since it's not IN the Quarter we felt safe staying there with our two young kids on our first visit to New Orleans. There was a little nighttime street noise but we just turned on the overhead fan in the bedroom and that blocked it out just fine. The rooftop pool was a godsend after walking around in the heat all day! A great place to cool off. Only downside is parking,there are several garages nearby about $20/night, but nowhere to pull up and load/unload luggage since they are doing construction on the street. So we had to make a couple of trips to/from the garage (we travel light, but we are still a family of 4!) Overall a great base for your sightseeing or business trip, easily enough space for a family (one king bed, plus air mattress for the kids), clean and modern, highly recommended! Thank you Darin!
Great location and very clean. We took advantage of the pool on the top floor several times which was a great bonus to our stay. Would stay here again should we ever visit New Orleans again! Thanks Darin for having us!
Excellent condo that exceeded our expectations. Clean, sleek and perfectly located. Host was professional. 100% positive experience.
Very clean, great location, Darin was helpful with everything we needed. Loved our stay!

About the Host, Darin
I am originally from a small town in Indiana but now love and am proud to call New Orleans home. My life at this point is basically distilling, brewing, billiards, botany, and travel. I have a 40,000 sq. ft. warehouse where I am currently building and raising money for a distillery/brewery/perfumery/farm.
